After revealing their very own Youtube channel with a sea of Gundam Titles, the most recognizable mech franchise the world over doesn't just have a satellite launching into outer space next year for the Summer Olympics or a number of statues around Japan, it also officially has its own quiz that can tell you which Mecha Suit from which Gundam franchise best represents you! Teaming up with the Japan Racing Association, the quiz is bizarre in that it best patents a mech suit after you based on your feelings toward horses!
Anime News Network shared the info drop that the rather "unique" quiz would fill you in on one of thirty two options for a Gundam suit depending on what your overall opinion on horses was, so keep that in mind before you take the quiz itself:
#Interest Char Aznable Tells You Which Mobile Suit You're Suited For Based on Your Horse Opinions • Mobile Suit Gundam's collaboration with the Japan Racing Association (JRA) continues with a quiz hosted by the Red Comet Char Aznable himself… https://t.co/WVuWM0nWpn— Anime News Network (@Anime) August 12, 2019
Mobile Suit Gundam has been an institution in Japan since its creation in the late 1970s, continuing on through multiple mediums and numerous realities to create entirely new stories that revolve around the giant mech suits. The quiz itself is "hosted" by one of the biggest antagonists in the Gundam series, Char, who recently had an anime series of his own released in the form of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin.
Which Gundam Mech Suit do you think best represents you? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, Gundam, and horses!
Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin originally began as a series of OVA specials in 2015, but eventually expanded to include 13 special episodes overall. The Toonami airings of the series will most likely encompass the entirety of this OVA run, which is based on a retelling of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series.
You can currently find the series streaming on Hulu, and they describe the series as such: "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."
