<Synopsis via Gundam Info>
Gunpla Battle Nexus Online (GBN) is a new network game that lets people enjoy a variety of missions using Gunpla in a virtual cyberspace dimension. Middle-school students Riku Mikami and Yukio Hidaka recruit their classmate Momoka Yashiro and dive together into this vast world. Becoming "Divers," or inhabitants of GBN, they meet a mysterious girl named Sarah who has an amazing sensitivity to Gunpla. They begin playing alongside her, but... Through many encounters and experiences, Riku and his friends will build not only Gunpla, but their own adventures as well!
You can watch the prologue of the series before it airs in Japan this spring 2018!

  1. Wait a minute, his hair colour isn't red! (Prologue was really goddam pace change from jigen-haoh bullshit to kinda tactical fighting with dog avatars?)

  2. Gundam is dead.
    Once in a while a silly spin off is okay.
    But this franchise is no longer a story about war or any thematic exploration. Is just 24 min comercial.

    1. Careful what you wish for. You might get more G-Reco.

    2. Ever since Bandai bought Sunrise in the early '90s every show has been a commercial for gunpla.

  4. Feels like they've taken some cues from Yugioh Vrains with the whole VR setting.

  5. They wasted the potential of Sekai versus Sei

  6. I love that they're bringing back the AGE-2! That was probably my favorite design from AGE- and its pilot even kinda looks like a grown-up Asemu/Captain Ash!

  7. So it's basically SAO + Moba + build fighter, it's good because online world wide, i believe they use gunpla scanner like in gunpla builder, if we really have gunpla battle in future i prever have plavsky system, seeing my own gunpla fighting is another level of joy.

  8. If we get a kit of each MS pictured above, I'll be greatly satisfied. Particularly anything EWAC! Probably P-Bandai, though...

  9. Ok...wtf are they creating another build fighters anime? About time for an actual ligit gundam anime. The main character probably going to be another idiot who is overly passionate and idealistic. I hope Bandai proves me wrong though...

  10. I wish that EWACS Jegan would come out as a regular release for a change... Wishful thinking? So there's no longer plavsky particles? People dive into the matrix Ready Player One style and the gunpla you build is scanned and digitized in this cyber world? Sounds interesting. It's like there going back to the original concept of Gunpla Builders Beginning G. Who knows.

  11. This isnt gundam. This is a crappy fanfic with furries

  12. I have my hopes up for a hg anf/fanton, and some new jinx variants. And to those of you who are saying GUNDAM is dead, let me ask you this, why is it still loved not only as a model kit line but as a series even by the elderly? Everyone is entitled to they're own opinion but mine is that I disagree with yours.

    1. If you like Gundam just as a plastic model line, great, you are not wrong. But in my case, I grew up seeing Gundam as the main driving force to keep the mecha stories alive and a good source to find stories more competently produced than your average mecha show.

      Times have changed, I have to accept that now the product takes complete precedence over the source material. As it has been obvious by now, the narrative is in service of the toy and not the other way around.

    2. Yup... That's right my friend...
      Everyone has their opinion and YES, I'm in your side. We want Anf as a kit.

    3. @Google

      Iron-Blooded Orphans didn't seem particularly merch driven when it came to its story, and in fact its story doesn't need the mechs much at all.

  13. I wonder if the Gunpla gets damaged here as well.
    The stakes were way higher before GBFT
