The official website for the new Gundam Build Fighters video project had been officially launched earlier today revealing a new television anime to premiere this October. The show will showcase new mobile suits, as well as customized designs of existing suits.
Seen in the first promotional video are new mobile suits based on previous anime projects, including Build Strike Gundam (Gundam Seed), Zaku Amazing (Gundam), Wing Gundam Fenice (Gundam W), and Gundam X Maō (Gundam X).
The new anime will focus on 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. GunPla Battles are competitions between Gundam plastic model kits which become popular worldwide in the "Second GunPla Boom."
Along with his new found friend Reiji, an accomplished Gundam Fighter, they strive for the GunPla Battle world championships. Other characters include Tatsuya Yūki, nicknamed "Crimson Comet" with his Zaku Amazing, and Sei's schoolmate, China Kōsaka.
Gundam Build Fighters will be directed by Kenji Nagasaki (No. 6) with scripts supervision of Yousuke Kuroda (Gundam 00). Kenichi Ohnuki (Mobile Suit Gundam Seed C.E.73: Stargazer) and Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Devil Survivor 2 The Animation) will handle the character designs. The mecha designers are Kunio Okawara, Junichi Akutsu, Junya Ishigaki, Kanetake Ebikawa, and Kenji Teraoka.
The new Gundam anime will also be in line to the HG Build Fighters model kit line which encourages customization with the accompanying HG Build Custom line of accessories. Additionally, Bandai also announces the "HG All Gundam Project" which will feature all lead Gundam units to be released each month!
