Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway is set twelve years after The Second Neo Zeon War led by Char Aznable, and focuses on Bright Noa’s son Hathaway, who secretly acts as “Mufti Nabiyu Erin,” the leader of a terrorist organization called “Mufti” whose purpose is to assassinate The Earth Federation’s leaders.
Hathaway’s Flash was written by Tomino, one of the original creators of the first Mobile Suit Gundam TV anime who served as director, as a sequel to his 1988 novel Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika Children (based on his rejected first draft for the 1988 film Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack), and published for three volumes from Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko from 1989 to 1990.
