Figured I'd start this thread now that the Summer anime season is ending and we are rapidly approaching the Fall anime season. Kit discussion is in a separate thread, right here.

Lazy copypasta from Gundam.info:

Gundam Build Fighters, the newest Gundam TV series, was announced at today's "Gundam New Video Project" press conference. The series will air on TV Tokyo and affiliates beginning in October 2013.

Gundam Build Fighters tells the story of new battles fought by some of Gundam fans' favorite mobile suits, while letting new fans' taste for Gunpla carry them into enjoyment of a TV series.

The series will be directed by Kenji Nagasaki, assistant director of the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 TV series and movie, and written by Gundam 00 screenwriter Yosuke Kuroda.
Character designs have been created by Kenichi Ohnuki, an art director for Gundam SEED and later TV series, with assistance from Suzuhito Yasuda.
The star-studded mechanical design lineup includes Kunio Okawara. Junichi Akutsu, Junya Ishigaki, Kanetake Ebikawa, and Kenji Teraoka.


Basically the same concept as the 2010 Gunpla Builders OVA, though it looks less like the Bonds of the Battlefield game and more like...Angelic Layer, sorta.

Preview 1
Preview 2

Thoughts, comments, rage, indifference, excitement, etc. go below!

I actually like how the Build Strike looks in action. The HG looks even better.
So why does the lineart look so ugly?
Now you see, what you did wrong there was read the comment section on GG.

It's another one of those angle things - they used the same pose for the lineart of the regular Strike.

On animation quality - definitely looks higher than that of AGE so far.

Definitely. The motions of the Build Strike vs. Zaku Amazing (That beam slash!) and Gyan are slick.

As a fan of kitbash customs, I'm really looking forward to seeing what other custom designs they'll be dishing out in the series. Hopefully we'll get to see some unique ones for each Gundam series as well as some from the side stories.

Some production sketches were posted in the kit discussion thread by ZR0. You've got the ordinary GP01 and Heavyarms, but there's also the bottom of a Guntank with the upper half of the RX-78-2.

Having been playing Gundam Breakers (PS3) which is kind of a tie-in I can say nothing good comes out of kitbashing without BLENDING in the mods. Looks like for the most part Build Fighters meets the same fate. (Though X and the Zaku are stomach-able.)

I guess the Alvaron from Gundam 00 will make an appearance, which is odd since there isn't a gunpla of it available.....yet(?):

I will probably watch this but there is a lot of good anime in this fall 2013 season so it may become part of the no count. Gundam needs to go back to it's roots like 00 did and be a politically motivated Seinen style anime instead of these Shounen shows like SEED and AGE.

To me, that only refers to 00's first season...the second season kind of fell apart.

On the bright side, they're deliberately trying to be different this time around instead of passing it off as the "next Gundam series."

I know there are supposed to be some licensing issues regarding Gundam Sentinel, would this series potentially be a way to get some designs animated since they wouldn't be using the characters? Or are the designs verboten too?
Current backlog:
MG Sazabi Ver Ka / HG Rebawoo
MG Crossbone X-3 / MG Zeta Unit 3 / HG Delta Gundam
And a whole mess of kits to be painted! WIP thread...eventually!

Well, they did say that Sei sucked at piloting. No surprise there.
Though I do wonder how the HGUC Gyan is able to move without tripping over, considering its crappy ankles...

SAGE, who was pretty much the only group doing Gundam AGE, has confirmed they're subbing in case streaming isn't your thing.

Just finished watching the first ep and I have to say that I am very impressed by the quality.
Seeing all these mobile suits in modern day animation is a very nice treat to all Gundam fans. And I'm sure UC fans will love the cameo of a certain character. Definitely made me laugh out of joy. XD

I about lost it when he showed up. Just the first episode, but two thumbs up so far. I loved that giant display full of lead Gundams.

so...better than the Gunpla Builders OVA so far?

I won't be able to watch the series until later but I've definitely noticed higher animation quality compared to AGE.

Eh, I guess that depends on why you didn't like Gunpla Builders. Animation is where we'd expect a big budget series, characters are a little less flat and cheesy (though Reiji swims in it), and references are not the least bit subtle. It's just the first episode though, and we all know how flawed first impressions can be. At the very least, I personally don't see it as a day one failure like AGE was, if that helps any.

I'm liking this series already. Loved seeing the titans colour ReGz and a certain old man.
I absolutely lot it when the Dijeh cleaved the Freedom in half.

I await the day that Turn A, Turn X and Crossbone get new HG kits.
Maybe bandai is hinting something here.

I didn't dislike Gunpla Builders, it just felt a little lacking. Then again, they only had 3 episodes to work with so they did what they could. I also didn't consider AGE a day one failure, more of a "could have been better for the first half and sucked completely for the second half."

Just my opinion on the matter. I didn't feel that it had any redeeming qualities after the first outing. Build Fighters is definitely laying the groundwork for a much more fleshed out series than the Gunpla Builders OVA was though. The effect they're using to animate the model boxes is a little jarring however.

An nice catch ZR0. I spent so much time trying to figure out what the Turn X was from behind that I missed the Crossbone. The Sentinel got a nice cameo too. Hopefully we'll see it in action.

It seems to be an effect that's cropping up more and more. It was used in GPB for the same effect and also I noticed they did something similar in Genshiken Nidaime with the dvds on people's shelves.

Overall I enjoyed episode 1. Reiji annoyed me alittle bit in terms of how he was executed but hopefully that will pass. As someone who likes Age more than 00 (that 2nd series and film >.<) I'm actually thinking this is shaping up to be my favourite series since Turn A. Also as someone not crazy about the Strike I'll be picking up a MG Build Strike on day one for sure after that cool fight against the Gyan.

It seems you and I shared the same favorite moment, and I hope we get a whole lot more HGUCs of all those older UC designs.

I think Turn X needs an MG :D

I'd hate to have my Gunpla destroyed like that. Poor Wing...
Please, someone explain to me how the HG Gyan can move like that. It's bothering me.
Reiji, what are you?

.... I wonder...

Reporter: "Dr. Plavsky, there was a rumor that you were rushing to apply for a name change when you first discover the new particle, but stopped when properties of the particle were further investigated. What was the name you were planning to call yourself?"

Dr. Plavsky: "...Mi....Mino...... nevermind...."

They hinted that he's from a place called Arian.
Hopefully he's not some special/ancient being from another planet. ^__^;
