Now, Toonami has officially announced that it has added Mobile Gundam: The Origin to its list of anime. It will be aired on 06 July 2019. It is clear that the anime will launch with an English dubbed version but the time slot is yet to be revealed. Not many know but its manga is based on an anime so this new anime is the adaptation of the original old anime.

Music of the latest anime is given by Takayuki Hattori. The studio that is making the new anime is Sunrise. The anime is running on NHK General TV and in the United States, it is running on Toonami.
