Gundam Build Fighters' Producer Hints At 2nd Season?
A recent interview by Akiab-Souken with Sunrise producer, Masakazu Ogawa, vaguely hints at a possible 2nd season of the popular Gundam Build Fighters series.
The producer states that the ratings of the series were well received by Bandai, and that he is aware of noises wanting to do something for the fans of the series. However, the producer also mentioned that Sunrise's plate is quite full with the upcoming release of Gundam: G no Reconguista and Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN, both currently at various stages of production.

The first is the Gundam film Gundam: G no Reconguista to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the first Gundam TV series, which is schedule to hit theaters in Japan this Fall. This film production will be directed by Tomino, and will be his first since his last TV series project 'Turn A Gundam'.
