One year after winning the Gunpla Battle National Championships, Team Try Fighters is invited by Yajima Trading to a remote island to test the company's new battle system. Sekai and Fumina arrive on the island, only to discover that Gyanko, Shia and Minato were also invited. Yuuma declines the offer as he is assisting Mirai on a photoshoot, only to realize that he and his teammates are on the same island. Meanwhile, the Nielsen Lab experience an anomaly when their new Plavsky particles form a giant crystal and cause Gunpla on the island to go out of control. The Gunpla Fighters must band together to stop the crystal from wreaking havoc on all Gunpla Battle Systems around the world.

There are two main problems with Build Fighters Try.

The first being the fights themselves. Don't get me wrong, we get some over the top action in Build Fighters Try and its special, but it's ...

There comes a time where you watch a Gundam show. It can be a good one or a bad one but at the end, you will feel satisfied watching that show because it had some good elements in it.
