  • Despite covering events from the The Origin manga, this series appears to follow the continuity of the OVA adaptation: The Guncannon's model number was said to be RCX-76 instead of RX-77, and in Chapter 6, it is mentioned that a colony farming block was destroyed by a Federation ship, an event that only happened in the OVA.
