Gundam: Reconguista in G (Gundam: G no Reconguista), the franchise creator Yoshiyuki Tomino's major Gundam project since the 2005-2006 Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam film trilogy, will debut this fall. It is set in "Reguild Century," the era set after the Universal Century, and it will follow the adventures of a pilot trainee named Beruri Zenamu in Capital Guard, an organization protecting a space elevator. The character designer is Kenichi Yoshida, and the mecha designer are Akira Yasuda, Ippei Gyōbu, and Kimitoshi Yamane. Yuugo Kanno is scoring the music. 
(Info via AnimeNewsNetwork)

During the Kidou Senshi Gundam 35th Anniversary Announcement, Gundam creator, Tomino Yushiyuki said that the new Gundam: Reconguista in G  is not meant for the UC or Origin fans but for the children. The series was made so that children of Gundam fans can enjoy.

How the title of the series was decided
“G” was taken from “ガンタム大地に立つ” “Gundam Daichi ni Tatsu” (Gundam Raising)
“大地” means “Ground”
Originally  レコンギスタ was supposed to be “レコン キ スタ” Reconguista was suppose to be Reconkista originally.
The reason why for the change was because they thought the title wouldn’t stand out.
(Info via Kitakubu)

Story Outline from Official Website (Translated by AnimeNewsNetwork): 

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.

      So basically, a rehashed plot used in MANY of the other series? Wow, just what we need. (SARCASM)

      This series seems fresh and I'm excited for it. And this is Tomino we're talking about. "For the children".. HAHA.. Did anyone else watch some of his other "children" shows? Yeah, some were so depressing and had some brutal deaths. Why ask for something that has been done over and over? Why can't we get something fresh and new?!

  12. ok it's news and seriously what with the Face!!!, look so not Gundam-ish.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Horns are not nearly as outlandish as a mustache on a Gundam. Turn A had the silliest looking Gundam and ESPECIALLY the enemy suits, yet it turned out to be the best Gundam series thus far.

      Delete
  13. That MS looks like the Eureka Seven's Nirvash...that arch on the back, and that weird head.

    1. I had that same thought

  14. Now it's clear, G Reko is part of gundam meta-verse.

  15. Dont let colorful tones deceive you, its directed by Tomino. You will only find "dead" on this anime

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. @Anon (Mar. 20, 2:32 AM):

      Not necessarily; Turn A Gundam didn't have much deaths; it was hardly a bloodbath akin to his outings prior to that series. Also, didn't the Zeta movies and Gundam Evolve 4 (based on Char's Counterattack) take things down a notch? I mean, sure, don't forget his earlier Gundam works where he earned his nickname of "Kill 'em all" Tomino, but in light of what I mentioned, it could turn out to be one of his lighter works in the end.

      But we'll not know until it comes out. I'll be looking forward to it's airing.

      Delete
    2. When he make gundam he's in stress, and it's out of control in Victory that's why he retired from gundam project. Then when he directed Brain Powered and next Turn A he's now less stressful. Even King Gainer only have very few death. From what I see he's now like a person who can enjoy his life. Okay dead will be inevitable but I think not so much as his UC works before.

      Delete
  16. i think this is the G- reko or G-record yoshiyuki announced 2years back. The setting is similiar. If he did just change the name and not much on the idea. Guys this series is sequel to Victory and G- saviour. Taking place a thousand years into UC timeline, possible serving as a bridge between UC time line and CC(turn A gundam) time line. UC predates CC by at least 3000 years according to the dark history mentioned in Turn A gundam.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Beruri Zenamu just like Akira Takizawa from Eden of the East n I think his tall not like previous pilot

    ReplyDelete
  18. This felt very different from what Gundam really is. Either way, its worth a watch...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don't see the MS connection from Gundam AGE, Gundam 00 or even Eureka Seven

    1. The colorful world reminds me of Eureka Seven, the head and jetpack look Age-ish, the body type looks like something from 00

  20. Got the Turn A and King Gainer vibes!
    No mustache but some funky head design again.
    Will the Gundam have many forms too?

    Set after UC?
    So the UC tech is already there?
    All at fin funnel grade already?

    Or they will say its millions of years of peaceful UC years that the tech reverted a bit?
    Some treaty to lock up powerful tech?

    WOuld it be another Earthnoid and Spacenoid conflict?
    Are Newtypes extremely common by then?

    Will UC MS make a cameo?
    Will they dig them up or is it too early to do so, lol.

    Would be fun to see a Psychoframe rice cooker or something :P

    Something to look forward to!

    1. check out the mecha design on http://g-reco.net/, the head isn't funky it's a classic Gundam V. The trailer is showing the gundam from a weird angle that's all.

  22. Wonder what kind of mask the masked man will wear this time.

    Or will there still be Char memory clones, lol.
    Or maybe some Char and Amuro data or something.

    Or they will make replicas of UC MS and bury them so the folks in Correct Century can dig them up, lol XD

    1. The Laplace Box started the Universal Century.
      What ended it?

    2. I suppose 'Reconguista' is a music word?
      And 'G' is music note?

    3. recoguista is based on reconquista, the christian crusade to.take back the holyland from the islams during the q

    4. its by yoshiyuki tomino, a continuation of UC timeline, age was shit, but as long as it is yoshiyuki, it.cant be worse than ZZ gundam. So, yes give it a try if u love UC and turn A

    5. @Anon (4:12 PM):

      Therefore it's always a good thing to judge by a few-second glance? Didn't the fandom basically do that with Tomino's last Gundam TV series back in '99? And now you have some people (even here) thinking that show was good in spite of their distaste for the aesthetics of it's MS designs.

      But I can't stop you from automatically concluding that this show won't be to your tastes, so to each their own, I guess. *shrug*

      Delete
  46. Wow. That Gundam is going to make for an epic master grade!

    Bandai, stop being so awesome! We are already overwhelmed this year! Are you saying that next is going to be even more epic?!

    This series has that whole Gundam Age/Eureka 7 vibe to it.
    Designs look like Eureka 7 so I get the feeling this will be a very generic mecha anime with the Gundam name slapped on the title. I think it's like Gundam Age because people said that it looked stupid and childish and it turned out to be a barely decent Gundam anime at best.

    I think I will skip this anime and kits. Not worth it all. Now if they made that Gundam Wing Glory manga into an anime as well as Frozen Teardrops, that would be freaking awesome and worthy of being part of the Gundam history.

  66. In case people haven't read what GG wrote as part of their post about this announcement they mentioned Tomino specifically stated that this series is designed for children of Gundam fans to enjoy and not for fans of UC or the Gundam the Origin. Unlike Gundam Age where people just assumed it's for a younger audience and not meant to be for old school Gundam fans, Tomino states it outright that it's not meant for old school fans. He's essentially saying if you grew up with Mobile Suit Gundam and it's sequels don't expect this to be in the same league as this is meant for your kids to enjoy. That being said I am perfectly content with this series as at least lets you know ahead time what kind of series it will be and what to expect. Again just to send the message home: TOMINO STATED IN HIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THIS SERIES AT THE KIDOU SENSHI GUNDAM 35TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT THAT THIS SERIES IS NOT MEANT FOR THE UC OR GUNDAM THE ORIGIN FANS BUT FOR CHILDREN OF GUNDAM FANS!!!

    1. Just because something is aimed at kids doesn't mean it will be bad or adults can't enjoy it, look at avatar the last airbender or some of the other shows from nickeloneon. I am willing to give this a shot, if we hope for gundam to continue for another 30 years it needs to look for a younger audience as well as the older fans, but the young audience will give some freshness to the fandom.

  67. "G no Reconguista is not meant for the UC or Origin fans but for the children"

    So its another Age?? Is it will become another Age failure? Did they learn from their mistake? Age gunpla was failure, they cancelled Age 3 because poor sales of Gunpla Age. Well lets see, its Tomino after all

  68. "During the Kidou Senshi Gundam 35th Anniversary Announcement, Gundam creator, Tomino Yushiyuki said that the new Gundam: G no Reconguista is not meant for the UC or Origin fans but for the children."

    All I needed to hear. Skip.

  69. What's with all the hate? The show hasn't even come out yet. It's kinda like when Gundam Build Fighters was announced, everyone said "Omg that's that dumbest concept ever." Now everyone loves GBF because it appeals to all fans. Gundam really has a closed-minded fanbase outside of Japan,..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. GBF was an established concept with a long line of popular Gunpla Battle manga to back it.

      "Gundam really has a closed-minded fanbase outside of Japan"
      I agree.

      I'm still looking forward to G-Reko.

      Delete
    2. But on the other hand that statement is overgeneralizing.
      There are still those outside Japn that are open to this like you and me etc :)

      Delete
    3. When GBF was announced, people were spewing hate because it was a "children's show" like AGE. I wasn't talking about the concept of Gunpla Battle or that popular kits were heavily modified (those were around way before GBF). I'm just saying it's second nature for a lot of Western fans to be afraid of change. They don't get that Gundam can't be the same old gritty war story all the time, or that the franchise has to focus on different demographics to keep going. I feel like Bandai doesn't cater to the Western market partly because Western consumers are much angrier and less likely to embrace new ideas compared to Japanese consumers.

      Glad you're willing to give the show a chance! :) Yeah, I made an overgeneralization, but it does apply to a lot of people (but not all) in our community.

      Delete
    4. Another fun thing is how many Gundam fans complain about how Gundam shows look "kiddy" and childish... which is ironic because that's childish itself xD

      Delete
    5. Eden Fesi are you joking? Japan freaked out when they saw the Turn A's design. They hate change so much that they are afraid to have any other enemy besides Zeon in UC. They can't even change the faceplate of the main Gundam for the most part. Japan doesn't cater to Western markets because they're Japan and they only really care about Japan. They are intensely afraid of change. Japan is a very traditional conservative society.

    3. Children watch anything nowadays.
      Naruto, One Piece etc.
      I guess theres nothing to fear.

      For kids means its not H-anime or gore ultra violence spill-out guts bloody anime, I suppose :P

      Maybe Bandai will bring back those less articulated easy to build No Grade kits?

  73. I might like watching this since the art style is very similar to Eureka Seven. Can't say anything good or bad about the gundam though.

  75. So this series is aimed for children, again? That was already the aim of Gundam Age and it failed epicly, so why do that again?

    1. With different staff and directing, even kids show can be epic, fail, or epic fail. This is Tomino what we speak about, as long as bandai didn't interfere Tomino's idea so much just like before, he can handle this title well.

  78. Cool mech....but what the hell is Bandai's obsession with blue mechs? Every single god damn time its blue! Why not chance things up a bit?

    ReplyDelete
  79. The Gundam design is not my cup of tea. The awful head and terrible chest vents. And what's with the lights all over the place? Rifle design is fair enough, shield looks awful. Why huge backpacks again, Bandai? They add to the cost of Gunpla and is boring. Though I suppose you can't always use GN-Drives, or an RX-78-2 type booster, maybe one with storage usage like the EZ-8

    The protagonist doesn't seem interesting, too happy and with ridiculous/awful looking hair. Guess I like one with conflict like Setsuna F. Seiei, or Heero Yuy. Though I have not been dissapointed with Garrod Ran. Overdone like Flit Asuno, or underdone like Kio Asuno might not be good as well.

    2. It is going to flop. This is not the sort of thing kids are into these days. Bandai's smartest move would to be to cater to their existing (very large) fanbase, not distance themselves from it in hopes to expand their product to a new generation with experiments like this.
      Last time they tried to do this, Gundam AGE, it was a catastrophic failure.

      Delete
    3. Gundam X was a more "catastrophic" failure than AGE, but Gundam didn't die then. It certainly didn't die in AGE either. The show hasn't even started and people are calling it a failure. Can't we just wait for it to start before we make conclusions?

  95. Will people stop comparing this to AGE? So far, they seem nothing alike besides the fact that they're aimed towards children, and they look like they'll be tackling that in a different approach this time than with AGE. Give it a chance people, it has very unique and refreshing designs for a Gundam series. Besides, AGE didn't have a bad reception at all while it aired, it did statistically better than 00's second season.

    ReplyDelete
  96. The suit looks like the curvy offspring of the AGE-1 and the Nirvash; hardly a bad thing in my opinion. Its been a while since we've seen a backpack before, and I like the subtle changes to the head. (Lack of gold antennae, vulcan placement, forehead camera is recessed instead of like a Centurion helmet)

    As for the show itself; its set in the future of the UC timeline, but prior to the CC era, meaning its going to be an interesting bridge between what are arguable the most important and beloved series' in the franchise. Combined with the intriguing art direction and promising score in the trailer, this entry doesn't look like it will fail easily. I can't wait.

    1. The creator himself said it will be for children, not for fans of serious or mature Gundam series like UC or Origin.

  105. I like people here always repeat Kill 'em all words, as like Tomino still like that yet. Which mean they not watch brain powered, turn A and king gainer, or just ignorant about it. And their prejudice "kids show = fail", which mean you older people just want monopolize gundam for yourself and won't give a chance for next generation kids to appreciate gundam. Will you realize kids and youngster is one of reason gundam still survive so far, not only us older fans which some of us only complaining and hating, without give a chance for new things?
