Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (機動戦士ガンダム THE ORIGIN Kidō Senshi Gandamu Ji Orijin?) is a manga written and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, published in Gundam Ace between 2001 and 2011 and is the second, broader manga adaptation of the original Mobile Suit Gundam television series, which follows a similar storyline, but with different details. Originally, it was published in English by Viz Media under the title "GUNDAM THE ORIGIN"

In July 2012, the manga once again became licensed for publication in English when Vertical, Inc. announced that they had acquired the rights to release the series in special Hardback Editions called "MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM THE ORIGIN" based on the Aizouban released in Japan. Both include various extras such as interviews with Hideaki Anno and CLAMP,, side story manga and guest illustrations, The first volume was released Spring 2013. The arcs of the manga that depict events before or in the early stages of the One Year War were lated adapted into the theatrical OVA, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin.

Plot

The plot of the manga follows somewhat closely the plot of the original series. It is the year Universal Century 0079, and the eighth month of the vicious One Year War between the Earth Federation and a breakaway nation of space colonists, the Principality of Zeon. The story follows the crew of the ship White Base, as they fight to ferry the experimental RX-78-02 Gundam mobile suit to the Federation base at Jaburo.
