Recently a new video surfaced on dailymotion that showcases 10 minutes of footage from the first episode of the upcoming Gundam series, Gundam Reconguista in G. On top of that there is also 10 minutes of conversation by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the creator of the Gundam series. Sadly the video doesn’t have any subtitles in it so unless you’re fluent in Japanese, all you can do is watch.
Still footage of Gundam Reconguista in G is still worth while footage!
Gundam Reconguista in G will start airing in Japan in October 2014 and will consist of 25 episodes. As a HUGE Gundam fan I can’t wait for this brand new Gundam entry and I’m loving the art style. Reminds me of “Turn A Gundam” to be honest.
And here’s some back story if you haven’t even heard of the new series, but if you haven’t then where have you been?
Some time has passed since the end of the Universal Century, a history marked by space colonization and space warfare.
Humanity’s prosperity, which ushered in a new era known as Reguild Century (R.C.), was believed to endure alongside the global peace.
It is the year R.C.1014.
The Capital Tower is an orbital elevator that rose above the Earth’s surface and linked Earth and space. As the conduit of the Photon Battery energy source to the surface, it is regarded as sacred.
Beruri Zenamu is in the middle of training for the Capital Guard (established to protect the Capital Tower), when the tower is attacked by G-Serufu — a highly maneuverable mobile suit with technology that is not from any known country.
Beruri, who joins the battle in the maintenance mobile suit Rekuten, successfully captures the G-Serufu. However, Beruri feels something for the space pirate girl named Aiida Reihanton who piloted the G-Serufu. It is the same feeling he has for G-Serufu, even though he supposedly never seen it before. The G-Serufu, which should only be operable under specific conditions, is somehow started up by Beruri.
The objective of Aiida and the space pirates who attacked the Capital Tower, and the fate followed by Beruri who was chosen by G-Serufu, will lead to truths that will shake the entire Reguild Century era.
