Yoshikazu Yasuhiko says Cucuruz Doan’s Island is ‘Probably’ his Last Gundam Anime

A press conference for Sunrise’s Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island film was held at Ikebukuro’s “harevutai” theater on March 9 to commemorate the fan celebrated “Zaku Day”. The talk event was attended by director Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Amuro Ray actor Toru Furuya, and Cucuruz Doan actor Shunsuke Takeuchi.

During the event Toru Furuya stated that the movie “may be the last time I voice a 15-year-old Amuro in a film.”

Likewise, director Yasuhiko echoed similar sentiments of this being his final Gundam screen project, “after doing Doan, I have no more regrets, so this will probably be the last time I adapt Gundam on screen. I don’t mean to sound like I’m retiring or anything, but this will probably be the last time I do so.”

Announced during the 2nd Gundam Conference on September 2021, Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island is a new anime film directed by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, the character designer and chief animation director of the 1979 Mobile Suit Gundam series, as well as chief director of the 2015-2018 Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin OVA series. The film will be a new perspective on the fifteenth episode of the same name from the 0079 series. The tagline for the new film is “Gundam, rising again—“ and is set to release June 3, 2022 to 185 theaters in Japan.


After enduring the battle at Jaburo, the Earth Federation Forces plan to launch a major counteroffensive to capture Odessa, a major base of Zeon’s Earth Attack forces. The White Base, with Amuro and his fellow crew aboard, head towards Belfast to receive the last resupply before the operation. White Base is then given a mission. The mission is to mop up the remaining Zeon enemies on an uninhabited island, commonly known as the “Island of No Return”. Amuro and his team embark on a search for the remaining agents, but what they see is a group of children and a Zaku that should not be there. After losing his Gundam in a battle, Amuro meets a man who calls himself Cucuruz Doan. Will he be able to uncover the secrets of the island, and will Amuro be able to find the Gundam again and escape safely……?
