The Zeta TV series saw the return of Yoshiyuki Tomino as director, Yoshikazu Yasuhiko as character designer, and Kunio Okawara as mechanical designer, joined by a team of new designers such as Mamoru Nagano and Kazumi Fujita. The series soundtrack is composed by Shigeaki Saegusa, who would go on compose for the two succeeding Gundam installments.
