Gunpla Builders G header

Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G is an OVA series that aired exclusively on Japanese TV in 2010. It was directed by Kou Matsuo with mechanical designs by veterans like Kunio Okawara and Kimitoshi Yamane and character designs by Kaichiro Terada. Unlike previous Gundam series, Gunpla Builders is set in the “real world” where Gundam is a popular anime franchise and model kit enthusiasts scan their kits for use in a video game called Gunpla Battle. The series stars Hal Irei, a Gunpla newcomer who explores the world of Gunpla Battle with his friends Kenta Sakazaki and Rina Noyama. The concept of Gunpla Battle inspired two unrelated spiritual successors: Gundam Build Fighters and Gundam Build Divers. The series was released on home video in North America in 2023 by Nozomi Entertainment.
