While fans of Gundam Build Fighters Try have been treated to a proper simulcast for that series and its previous incarnation, fans of Gundam Reconguista in G haven’t made out as good. But that’s now managed to change some as the series has begun streaming on the official Gundam Info YouTube channel with English subtitles (as well as streams in other territories/subtitles). The addition comes as about twenty-two episodes have been broadcast in Japan since it’s debut last year.
Madman Entertainment picked up the rights to the series last fall with plans for an Australian home video release in the future. In North America, it’s expected the series will be released through Right Stuf as part of their overall Gundam deal with Sunrise.
With Yoshiyuki Tomino serving as the chief director, it will have character designs by Kenichi Yoshida and mechanical design by Akira Yasuda, Ippei Gyoubu and Kimitoshi Yamane.
The cast includes Mark Ishii as Beruri Zenamu, Yu Shimamura as Aiida Reihanton, Minako Kotobuki as Noredo Nagu, Ryota Ohsaka as Kurimu Nikku, Takuya Satō as Ruin Rii, Ayahi Takagaki as Many Anbasada and Yukari Fukui as Raraiya Mandy.
Plot concept: The Universal Century, an era of historic migration into space and space wars has ended, and some time has passed. Now, mankind believes that their pursuits and prosperity will continue on peacefully into the new era, the Regild Century (R.C.)
R.C. 1014. The Capital Tower is a space elevator which towers over the land connecting Earth to space. The tower’s purpose is to bring down Photon Batteries from space that power the Earth, and as such is perceived as a holy place.
Bellri Zenam is a cadet in the Capital Guard which exists to protect the Capital Tower. In the middle of his first practice mission, he is attacked by the high-performance G-Self mobile suit, which uses technology possessed by no known nation.
Bellri engages with the work-model mobile suit Recten and successfully captures the G-Self. But Bellri finds himself feeling strange emotions towards the girl who was piloting the G-Self, a Space Pirate called Aida Rayhunton. He also feels a connection towards the G-Self which he believes he has never seen before.
Suddenly, the G-Self, which is only supposed to be operable under specific circumstances, begins to activate. Lying in wait behind the Space Pirate and Aida’s attack on the Capital Tower and the destiny of Bellri, now chosen by the G-Self, are truths which will shake the entire Regild Century. And this is all just the beginning of Reconguista.
