Gundam ACE Reveals "Gundam Build Diver Rize" Side Story


The monthly comic magazine Gundam ACE April 2020 issue has revealed the Gundam Build Diver RIZE, a Gundam Build Divers series side story.

The reveal also features some of its main custom GunPla including the Gundam Anima [RIZE] for its main mobile suit, a custom made GunPla that was built and piloted by the side story's main hero, Rize. Gundam Anima [RIZE] uses a red Core Gundam unit called Core Gundam Rize. It is still unclear what special abilities this Gundam possesses.

Bearing its name Anima[RIZE], we could say that the name was inspired from word animalize, which also explains the animals embedded on some of its armor parts. Featured are stylized animal heads with Roman numerals assigned to each.  [I - Lion / II - Tiger / III - Bear / IV - Wolf]





The series' mecha designer Ippei Gyoubu has also revealed some more GunPla for the side story, including the G-Reco's Mack Knife in its Build Diver series variant called Mack Knife Gradiation.

Magazine scans also reveals a Super Deformed Gundam called Fight Gundam.

  5. The animal insignia on the Gundam Anima [Rize] kinda reminds me of the Gundam Kiyan Altron

  6. The Anima Rize' entire aesthetic just screams "Toku Hero" to me, something like Kamen Rider OOO due to the animal theme.

    1. HY-HY-HY HYPER! (PEW PEW PEW)
      I'm thinking more of a Kamen Rider Beast look for this thing, if only because the gimmick of OOO is the three-part combo of head, torso and legs (and the default Tatoba Combo is a tricolour thing, rather than the unified colours of the Full Combos).
