Gundam AGE's Hiyon Katsuragi draws Gundam UC: Niji ni
Fukui and artist Hiyon Katsuragi launched their Kidō Senshi Gundam UC: Niji ni
Norenakatta Otoko (Mobile Suit Gundam UC: The Man Who Could Not Ride the
Rainbow) manga in the 18th issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype Ace magazine on
Saturday. The manga is an adaptation of Fukui's Mobile Suit Gundam UC novel and
anime franchise. It is set immediately after the events of the Mobile Suit
Gundam: Char's Counterattack film and follows the growth of Bright Noa, the
commander of three successive Gundam Newtype ace pilots. In addition to the
manga, the magazine published an interview with Fukui.
Katsuragi also drew the Mobile Suit Gundam AGE: First Evolution manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Gundam Ace magazine in 2011.
