Early last September, it was announced that Mobile Suit Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino was working on a new SF project called G Reko. Now, the Mechadamashii web site has turned up a new magazine image regarding this mystery proejct, which Mechadamashii claims is "the new Yoshiyuki Tomino anime set over a 1000 years in the UC timeline's future".
Here's a translation of the text that appears on the page itself, giving away lots of clues about G-Reko's staff and premise.
