The official site for the Gundam Build Fighters anime series is today updated as that for the upcoming sequel Gundam Build Fighters Try with a key visual featuring the three main characters: Kamiki Sekai, Kousaka Yuuma, Hoshino Fumina, and main staff, voice cast, its story background.
The 25-episode 1st TV series was aired in Japan from October 7, 2013, to March 31, 2014. Thanks to the story featuring many popular mobile suits from the successive Gundam series, it pushed the sales of Bandai's Gunpla (Gundam model kits) greatly, so the expectation for the 2nd series is very high.
The story of Gundam Build Fighters Try is set 7 years after the end of the 1st series, when Iori Sei and Reiji won the 7th Gunpla Battle World Championships. Now Seiho Academy's Gunpla Battle Club has only one member, Hoshino Fumina, who is a third grade student in junior high. As the president of the club,
she needs two more members to participate in the upcoming All-Japan Gunpla Battle Championships. One
day she encounters a transfer student named Kamiki Sekai, who has traveled around for Kenpo training with
his master. Then joining by a young Gunpla builder Kousaka Yuuma, their challenge to the Gunpla Battle begins....
Gundam Build Fighters Try is scheduled to premiere on TV Tokyo and its affiliates in October 2014. You can
