Why are you not watching Gundam Build Fighters?
This is actually the perfect time. Gundam.Info (which is own by Sunrise, if you’re worried about its legibility) has uploaded the final episode on Youtube so you can now view the series in it’s entirety.
If you don’t want to watch another series about children piloting giant robots into battle despite the moral ramifications; well then you’re in luck because the series isn’t about that.
Gundam Build Fighters is in fact a series about fandom (particularly Gundam fandom), it is about Gunpla (the little plastic Gundam models), it is about competitive fighting, it is about FUN & AWESOME!
If you want to know more about the series, here is an excerpt from the Gundam.Info:
The near future.
Years after the huge “Gunpla”-plastic models based on the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam-boom of the 1980s.
A second Gunpla boom is taking the world by storm, fueled by the revolutionary new ability to pilot your own Gunpla creations in “Gunpla Battles “. These incredibly-popular Battles culminate in a yearly global tournament.
Our hero Sei Iori, is a young Gunpla builder who dreams of someday making it to the world championships. An only child whose family owns a model shop, his talent is well-honed, but his weak piloting abilities have led to a series of first-round losses.
Then, one day, he meets a boy named Reiji whose piloting skills are incredible. Together as a team, they take on the world!
Sei, the Gunpla Builder.
Reiji, the Gunpla Fighter.
Sei builds, Reiji fights.
Together, they’re the Build Fighters!
Their dream is to make it to the Gunpla Battle World Championship… and win!
So! Why aren’t you watching this?
