The novel is going debut on November 26, and it is going to be focused on the past lives of three very important characters.

Harutoshi Fukui is credited for the story for both the novel and manga project. Hajime Yatate and Yoshiyuki Tomino have been credited for the original work. The anime will open on November 30 in Japan. Moving to the anime staff now. Shunichi Yoshizawa (Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt, Gundam: Reconguista in G episode director) has been given the job of directing the anime at Sunrise Studio #1. The script is done by Harutoshi Fukui. Kumiko Takahashi has done the characters, and Se Jun Kim (Mobile Suit Gundam Twilight AXIS) is designing the characters for animation.
Here is how Sunrise describes the anime’s story:
“U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.”
