Exciting news for Gundam fans! The June issue of Kadokawa’s Gundam Ace magazine has just revealed that a new spinoff manga set in the original Universal Century (U.C.) timeline is in the works. The manga is titled Mobile Suit Gundam Wearwolf (Kidō Senshi Gundam Wearwolf) and is set to debut in the magazine’s next issue.
The scenario for the manga is being written by Yasushi Shigenobu, who is best known for his work as the anime series composer for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Meanwhile, the art is being handled by Kei Itō, who has previously worked on the Space Battleship Tiramisu manga series. Ukyō Kodachi, known for his work on the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations manga, is credited as an advisor.
While details about the plot of Mobile Suit Gundam Wearwolf are still scarce, the title itself is already raising some eyebrows among fans. The word “werewolf” usually brings to mind images of shape-shifting creatures from folklore, so it’s anyone’s guess how this will tie in with the Gundam universe.
One possibility is that the new manga will focus on the concept of hybrid technology, combining elements of man and machine. This has been a recurring theme in the Gundam franchise, particularly in the original U.C. timeline, where the use of mobile suits became a crucial aspect of warfare. It’s possible that the “wearwolf” concept could be a new iteration of this theme.
