Starts October 8 on Gundam.info’s Youtube Channel!
What is it?
Gundam Build Fighters Try is one of TWO Gundam shows that will be airing this fall. It’s the sequel to last year’s fan favorite Gundam Build Fighters, one of NeoGaf’s Top 10 anime of 2013.
Why should I care?
Did you watch the original Gundam Build Fighters? If so, you should already know why you should be into this. If not, go ahead and check that out on Gundam.info’s Youtube channel. It’s a great show. Need more convincing? While, Gundam Build Fighters takes away the war story of your traditional Gundam show and instead throws the franchise into the world of competitive sport. You get all the great drama you can expect from fighting in a tournament setting as well as the joy of building plastic Gundam models. You also get some of the most well animated mecha fights you’ll find in modern anime.
What’s it about?
Set seven years after the original GBF, Try features a whole new group of heroes aiming to win the GunPla Battle World Championships. A lot has changed in seven years, including the basic rules of GunPla Battle. Competitors now must form teams of three, introducing a whole new dynamic of team work into the battle mix. Our heroes Seiho Academy’s Team TRY FIGHTERS must take on the competition to stand on top of the GunPla Battle Championship.
