Comment from Director Shinya Watada:
Thank you so much for always supporting “GUNDAM BUILD DIVERS Re:RISE”.
Please be informed that we decided to resume streaming the show from July 9th.
From now the story is accelerating towards its climax.
I would appreciate it if you could keep watching what will be happening to Hiroto and the other Build Divers as well as the planet Eldora till the very end.
We, all the production staff, continue to produce the show as we make sure everyone stay safe. Please look forward!
