Key Visual

Mobile Fighter G Gundam depicts the first major Gundam entry not set within the franchise’s long running Universal Century timeline. Garnering a reputation for making series move in unexpected directions from Mister Ajikko and Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still, Yasuhiro Imagawa directed the series with Fuyunori Gobu, of Armored Trooper Votoms fame, on series composition.

Mangaka Kazuhiko Shimamoto(Blazing Transfer Student, Blue Blazes) was tapped for character design drafts for the series by producer Masahiko Minami, who had been a friend and classmate to Shimamoto at Osaka University of Arts. The final character designs are handled by Hiroshi Osaka(The Vision of Escaflowne) coming off Mobile Suit Victory Gundam. The mechanical design team included Hajime Katoki, Kimitoshi Yamane, and veteran Kunio Okawara.

The series will celebrate its 30th anniversary on April 22, 2024.


Set within the Future Century timeline, to escape the war weary Earth, the world’s nations migrated into outer space to establish space colonies. To maintain peace between these new colony nations, they compete in a massive fighting tournament with a representative Gundam and pilot, the victor nation is then allowed to govern space and the other colonies. The series follows Neo Japan representative Domon Kasshu, a hot-blooded, reluctant participant in the 13th Gundam Fight, searching for his brother Kyoji Kasshu, who has seemingly betrayed his family and nation.
