A group of seven manga and anime creators are appearing on Saturday at the Sendai International Center in Miyagi Prefecture, an area heavily affected by the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake disaster. The purpose of the "Comic Festival in Tōhoku" event is to support recovery efforts in the quake-hit Tōhoku region.

Asaka and Inoue are residents of the Tōhoku, and Mita is from the region's Iwate Prefecture. Kikuni, Shinanogawa, and Miyake are speaking about their involvement with the charity comic app Bokura no Manga (Our Manga). Representatives from the editorial departments at the Koudansha and Shogakukan publishing companies who distribute the creators' works will also attend.
An exhibition of illustrated messages from about 500 manga artists will be held at the Sendai AER building on Saturday and Sunday. Another part of the exhibit will display 22 new manga artists' personal experiences in the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Until the end of January, people who buy select items from bookstores collaborating with event will receive one of ten special postcards with images from popular manga. Represented manga will include Yasuhiko's Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin, Gosho Aoyama's Case Closed (Detective Conan), and Chika Umino's March comes in like a lion.

New Gundam PS3 Title 'Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn' - Magazine Images

PS3: Mobile Suit Gundam UC Official Site (
(Release Date: Spring 2012)
From Software, the developer behind the Armored Core and Another Century's Episode (A.C.E.) robot game franchises, is developing a PlayStation 3 game based on the Mobile Suit Gundam UC video anime series for release next spring. The game — the first for the video anime — will cover the story from the first three anime volumes. Part of the game will follow the story from the viewpoint of the main character Banagher, while other parts will follow the story from the viewpoints of the rival characters Marida and Frontal. 
The Banagher route will have the player piloting the Unicorn Gundam in both "Unicorn mode" and "Destroy Mode" (with the NT-D system activated). The Frontal route will have the player in the remnants of the Zeon forces, piloting Frontal's personal mobile suit Sinanju. The Marida route puts the player in the shoes of the namesake Zeon ace pilot and the Kshatriya mobile suit with its remotely guided Funnel weapons.
The November 24 issue of Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine (which actually shipped on Thursday) has an interview with the developers of the game, along with profiles of the featured mobile suits and characters. During battle, the player can engage the "subflight system," and there will be downloadable content. Famitsu posted additional images from the game.
