The story is set in the near future when GunPla Battles, competitions that pit Gundam plastic models against each other, have become popular worldwide in the "Second GunPla Boom." Sei Iori, a first-year middle-school student and the only son of a model shop owner, is talented at building GunPla, but inexperienced in the GunPla Battles. He encounters a mysterious boy named Reiji, who happens to be an accomplished Gundam Fighter. Together, they strive for the GunPla Battle world championships.

Not everything is as it seems.

Gundam Build FIghters is a stand alone unique anime from its other gundam counter-parts. Instead of the series revolving around wars, you have kids and adults going against each other in a very Pokemon like battle. They put their gundams on particle machines that create the stage. (very much like Cardfight! and Yugioh!)

Story - Is pretty simple. You have Iori who is the son of a second runner up in gunpla's tournament. He is one of the best at building Gunpla machines. In doing so Iori inherits this. Then you have Reiji who is very good at fighting Gunpla. This read more

This may just be me nostalgia'ing, but I'm in love with this series. Before I watched the first episode I thought it'd just be another series like gunpla fighters, but I was wrong.

The setting is good enough to pay tribute to the great art and interesting unit designs. The battles flow so smoothly, can't say I've seen much better out of sunrise (except maybe unicorn), which is great to say about a tv series.

The best thing about this series though is the nostalgia factor. Without going into spoilers, let's just say Mr. Ral has the same voice actor as another Ral in a separate series. read more

A toy has become one of the most popular competitions. Build your own customized miniature fighter and use it in duels on a special arena against various opponents. Some of them may become your friends, some may use quite underhanded methods to win. Catch up to your parent. And maybe you'll even find love along the way.
Both these Gundam series are about hot-blooded tournament fighting, pretty much. I couldn't tell you how many times I expected Sei and Reiji to execute a Shining Finger instead of a Build Knuckle, haha. If you enjoyed the duelling and the special moves in Build Fighters, then look forward to even more kungfu-esque action in G Gundam.

Both anime take a few episodes to get off the ground, but when they do, they're pretty darned good. Remember to watch these subbed though - the English dub of G Gundam completely fails to capture the spirit of the original and is rather cringe-worthy.
