Synopsis


The story 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.

I am pretty damned hyped for this. The first season surprised me quite a bit since I wasn't too fond of the premise at first but quickly caught my interest after the characters were introduced and the story got going. I even grew fond of some of the supporting characters like Aila later on.

As for the sequel/new season though, I wonder what they will do....

Perhaps new characters (maybe even a main character?), Aila or Renji returning as part of the main cast, or new enemies and battle methods with Gunplas? Anyways, I'm really excited. For those who want to watch the first season, there's a youtube channel to watch it.

I honestly can't remember if I finished watching the first season... I remember Rinko that is about it off the top of my head.

I hope someone actually picks up the show though, cause CR doesn't have it and I am fairly sure neither does FUNi.

This goes for both seasons obviously.

I see.

Yeah I haven't used Youtube yet to actually watch Anime, so I would have never known.


Hell I can't remember the last time I was on Youtube that wasn't me following someones link...

This will be interesting to see how they handle the end of the first season.

I would totally love to see a kitbash of the ZZ Gundam or the Gundam Double X (not just dumb re-colors) this time around. Either way, I'm definitely excited for this show! Build Fighters season 1 is the perfect fanservice show for a massive Gundam fan like me, and I want more!

The first season was a real fun ride. The battles were pretty great and the romantic pairings were giddy fun.

I would love to see how Aila is dealing with life on Reiji's world and I can't get enough of Sei and China. Such and adorable pair of kids

Ah, that should be fun indeed. I wonder if Aila will get a new Gunpla though. Also, there was a lack of romance development between Sei and China in the latter half of season 1 so maybe the sequel might expand on that.

Definitely an underrated show of course.

Well the kiddy romances were cute but lets face it the whole point of the show was to sell Toy Robots.
