Build Fighters header

Gundam Build Fighters is a TV series that aired in Japan from 2013-2014. Taking inspiration from Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G, this series is set in the “real world” where people scan their model kits to compete in Gunpla Battle. The series was directed by Kenji Nagasaki, with mechanical designs by veterans like Kunio Okawara and Kanetake Ebikawa, character designs by Kenichi Ohnuki and Suzuhito Yasuda and a score by Yuuki Hayashi. The series stars Sei Iori, an expert Gunpla builder who lacks the skills to compete in Gunpla Battle. That changes when he meets an otherworldly prince named Reiji who teams up with him to fight in the 7th Gunpla Battle World Championship. The series was followed by a sequel TV series, Gundam Build Fighters Try. In 2017, the cast of the original series returned for an ONA midquel, Gundam Build Fighters: GM’s Counterattack. Characters from the series also appear in the 2017 ONA shorts Gundam Build Fighters Battlogue. The TV series streamed internationally and is available on home video in North America from Nozomi Entertainment.
