WHAT IS Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island ABOUT :
Synopsis: The year is Universal Century 0079. Cadet Amuro Ray fights in the cockpit of the snow-white Mobile Suit Gundam in the war of independence between the colonies of the Principality of Zeon and the Earth Federation. After successfully defending Jaburo, the Federation plans another offensive against Zeon's invasion headquarters in Odessa. Ray Amuro and his team are en route to Belfast when they receive a new assignment. They are to travel to the "Island of no Return" to intercept the Zeon's stragglers there. Instead of enemy spies, however, Amuro only finds a small group of children and a Zaku Mobile Suite. He also meets a strange man who calls himself Cucuruz Doan. His presence is closely intertwined with the secret the island hides, and when Amuro finds out about him, his life is in danger.
