The next Gundam anime is going to be all about… GunPla??? by Raipo

We knew this was to happen, and it did, right after Kidou Senshi Gundam 00. The 2010 June/July issue of Hobby Japan announced the next Gundam series, titled Gunpla Builders: Beginning G.

“Oooh! Is that a villain I see there in the background?”

So wait a sec. A Gundam series that will feature Gundam kits instead of the usual boy-finds-and-pilots-a-giant-robot plot? Unbelievable at first, but hey, this is Bandai we’re talking about. They can do whatever they want with their franchise. If they decide to dress up a Gundam in a tutu and call it Ballet Gundam then they can.


  Shown left: Beginning Gundam. The GunPla  Builders (clockwise): Irei Haru (the blue-haired boy), Noyama Rina (the only girl) and Sakazaki Kenta (the brown-haired guy).

But seriously, little has been revealed about this new series that will feature a trio of GunPla enthusiasts. What the heck is “GunPla,” you might ask? Gunpla is the portmanteau of “Gundam Plastic,” referring to the wide range of Gundam plastic models (which by the way has its own portmanteau: “plamo”) produced by Bandai. The details on the main Gundam itself, called the Beginning Gundam, has not yet been revealed. Whether or not it’s going to be the group’s main GunPla project or a man-sized robot or whatever, our guess is as good as yours.

Let’s hope it doesn’t turn out into another toy anime…

I'm feeling skeptical again... so it will not be about war and conflict but instead.. Gundam Plastic? Not sure about that but I hope its what I and Raipo is thinking (-_-)

Pretty much. That's what I read in the article;though I'm expecting something in the lines of Beyblade, Crush Gear and Let's and go. I'm still crossing my fingers though...
