I was hoping the new project would be a 2 hour movie or something. Still better than nothing I guess. I miss this show a lot.

YES!! Finally more news on this. Hopefully it deals more with the original cast and is more like the original series instead of Try.

So still no idea if this are prequel/sequel to GBF/GBF Try or Island wars?
And every 1 year we got GBF related is make me mad now just give us Sei and friend already

I'm interested in this one. I loved both seasons. I hope it's another full TV series

The build fighters was fantastic but the build fighters try is basically ridiculous too much op shit and the story line is horrible compare to the original build fighters

Hopefully it'll be decent like the first and not terrible like Try

Well, that trailer was basically a waste of time as it revealed nothing except the name of the new series.

Too bad it is called an "extra", and it may not be another full series. It will probably be the OVAs previously announced.

I hope we can see Sei and Reiji reunited. Would be great if try fighters cast fought with the original series cast, though the 2 OVAs are supposedly separate for each series.

And of course, I hope there is more Aila. She was best girl.
