American manga publisher Denpa LLC announced that it will release an English-language adaptation of Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika’s Children. The news comes from Denpa’s official Twitter account, where the publisher answered a few questions from fans. The company will begin releasing the manga in Summer 2022.

Denpa confirmed that its publication of Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika’s Children will be paperback. The company cited high production costs of hardcover as a limitation. Additionally, Denpa said the seven-issue collection of manga will be available for purchase both online and in brick-and-mortar bookstores. However, the series will only be available in print and not in a digital format. Finally, Denpa answered that it will not release all seven issues all at once.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika’s Children is a manga serialization based on the novel of the same name. The series originally released in Japan from June 2014 through September 2018. Thanks to Denpa, English speakers will soon be able to enjoy the adaptation of Char Aznable’s return as leader of Neo Zeon.

The Gundam series continues to go strong across multiple forms of media. Bandai Namco recently released the first trailer for its card-based arcade game, Mobile Suit Gundam: Arsenal Base. The company’s apparel division even released clothing items based on 2015’s Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.

Denpa will begin releasing Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika’s Children in English in Summer 2022.
