Hunter x Hunter is almost done airing on Toonami which gives the programming block a blank slot and do they have plans for that. Filling the shoes of Hunter x Hunter will be Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin which was originally an OVA that has been expanded to 13 episodes. The Origin is a retelling of a prequel for the original Mobile Suit Gundam series.

What was the tragedy that decided the fates of Char Aznable, the man later nicknamed the “Red Comet” as an ace pilot of the Zeon forces, and his sister Sayla Mass? The two siblings’ journeys, brought on by the sudden death of their father Zeon Zum Deikun who was a leader of the Spacenoids, are depicted in the four episodes of “Chronicle of Char and Sayla”. This story will be presented in the form of event screenings. The Zabi family who seize control of Side 3 and lead the Principality of Zeon, the early days of many renowned Zeon ace pilots who later fight in the One Year War, the secrets of mobile suit development, conflicts with the Earth Federation Forces, and the road leading to the outbreak of war—all will be revealed.

The Origin will premiere on Toonami on July 6 at 3 AM, but if you can’t wait, you can stream the show on Hulu.
