Gundam Ace 20th Anniversary

For the upcoming 20th anniversary of monthly manga magazine Gundam Ace, at least four new series will begin. Details are still scarce, but more information will appear as the dates for the commemorative series’ releases draw closer. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089!]

In August 2021, a new manga series based on Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket will start serialization. Hiroyuki Tamakoshi, author of Gacha Gacha and Boys Be…, will pen it. As well, Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam X-11 will start in August. Like the other entries in the Crossbone series, it’s written by Yuichi Hasegawa. Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam X-11 depicts the last days of Curtis Rothko, who is also known as Tobia Arronax.

In September 2021, a new project based on Gundam Seed will start. Though the leaks initially stated that it would not be a spin-off manga serialization, new information has somewhat debunked this. It still appears to be a serialization of some kind, but perhaps not a manga.

In October 2021, a new manga series titled Mobile Suit Gundam Pulitzer: Amuro Ray, Beyond the Aurora will start. It will be written by Umetaro Saitani and Chihiro Oowaki. Saitani previously worked on Mobile Suit Gundam Ground Zero Rise From The Ashes. Pulitzer focuses on Kikka Kobayashi in year 0095 as she gathers evidence and testimonies on Amuro Ray.

Multiple projects other than the ones listed in the leaks will appear in commemoration of Gundam Ace’s 20th anniversary. More information will appear in future editions of the magazine.
