Gundam Build Fighters Anime Series Coming This October

Sunrise Studios has announced a new Gundam anime series titled “Gundam Build Fighters (ガンダムビルドファイターズ)”, and it will be airing this October on TV Tokyo.

Gundam Build Fighters Anime Series Coming This October

The series is set in the near future when GunPla Battles, competitions that pit Gundam plastic models against each other, have become popular worldwide in the “Second GunPla Boom.” Sei Iori, a first-year middle-school student and the only son of a model shop owner, is talented at building GunPla, but inexperienced in the GunPla Battles. He encounters a mysterious boy named Reiji who happens to be an accomplished Gundam Fighter. Together, they strive for the GunPla Battle world championships.

The series features not only new mecha designs, but also customized designs from previous Gundam projects such as Build Strike Gundam (Gundam Seed), Zaku Amazing (first Gundam), Wing Gundam Fenice (Gundam W), and Gundam X Maō (Gundam X).

    This looks like an anime version of Gundam Breaker for PS3. I’ve been testing the beta for a month now and the game just came out 27th of June and it is pretty nice, but for an anime, I would like to see a more serious and dark Gundam series. It’s been a while since we seen a Gundam series not solely focused on a kid’s market… :(

      Agree … I would love to see a more adult version of Gundam but I guess Bandai has a great influence on the production to make sure they sell losta Gunpla

        … much to Tomino’s utter dismay. The original Gundam show would have been a real storytelling art piece rather than a toy commercial had it not been Bandai and Sunrise’s constant ruthless meddling – all the reason Tomino tried to kill the franchise with Victory – and probably Turn A – Gundam.
