Will the Fighters duel it out again?
First, there was Gundam Build Fighters. The setting was as follows: In the anime Sei Iori, a school student, and Gunpla builder had a dream to become as good as or even greater than his father was. He went to school and worked at his family’s small Gunpla shop afterwards, constructing an excellent Gunpla. But because he had no talent at Gunpla fighting, he kept losing the first round of every battle he’s fought. That is until he came into contact with a boy named Reiji, and together they took on other players. The show aired from October 2013 to March 2014
Then came Gundam Build Fighters Try, which took place seven years after season one with different main characters. It played off at Seiho Academy again and the Gunpla Battle Club only had one member left: Fumina Hoshino, and she was not even able to participate in the preliminaries of Japan’s national Gunpla tournament. Then a transfer student with martial arts training to boot named Kekai Kamiki appeared and with him and a Gunpla Builder named Yûma Yûsaka and a new team formed. It aired From October 2014 to April 2015.
Now there has been an announcement at the 55th Shizuoka Hobby Show as well as the official Twitter account for the Gundam Build Fighters Try anime that newly produced footage of Gundam Build Fighters Try is going to be aired in August on Japanese TV! It was not specified what this new footage will be about if it is an OVA or a special. We do remember that in April 2015 several OVA projects were promised for both series and we hope that maybe this is the fulfillment of that promise. Or hey maybe a new season of the anime is brewing ! We just know that Studio Sunrise is up to something and we will keep you posted as we find out more.
