Gundam Info, the official international Gundam YouTube channel, is streaming the complete Gundam Build Fighters Try, a part of their monthly streaming lineup. Later in the month, on July 22, the YouTube channel will stream New Mobile Report Gundam Wing and Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack.
The twenty-five-episode series streams with Japanese, English, Korean, and Vietnamese audio and multiple subtitle options.
Broadcasting from October 2014 to April 2015, Gundam Build Fighters Try is a follow-up to Gundam Build Fighters, with Shinya Watada and Yousuke Kuroda returning for direction and scripts. The series featured character designs by Kenichi Ohnuki, and a mechanical design team consisting of Kunio Okawara, Kanetake Ebikawa, Junya Ishigaki, Kenji Teraoka, Naoki, Shinya Terashima and Susumu Imaishi.
In Gundam Build Fighters Try, seven years have passed since Sei Iori won the 7th Gunpla Battle Championship World Tournament. The Gunpla Battle Championship is now run by Yajima Trading. With new rules and battle modes, the game’s popularity has become even more widespread.
However, the Seiho Academy that Sei Iori once attended has failed to catch onto the trend. The only member of the school’s Gunpla Battle Club is its president, middleschooler Fumina Hoshino. Currently there is no way the club can participate in the upcoming Gunpla Battle Japanese Under19 Championship, where players fight in teams of three.
Then Fumina meets a new transfer student. He is Sekai Kamiki, a young martial artist who has been travelling with his master. Together with a young Gunpla builder named Yuuma Kousaka, they finally have three members for their team.
Sekai Kamiki, Yuuma Kousaka, and Fumina Hoshino — team “TRY FIGHTERS” is about to begin its challenge!
In March, the Bandai Namco Group’s cross-sectional “Gundam Project” team held their 3rd Gundam Conference, presided by chief Gundam officer Koji Fujiwara to outline its plans for the Gundam franchise.
When discussing slated Gundam projects in their “work development strategy” such as Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, the untitled Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ignited film, and the Legendary Pictures live-action Gundam movie co-production, Fujiwara announced the development of a “fan movie” to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Gundam Build series. No further information or a release window was given for the project.
