Story Synopsis 
(Rough Translation by Bandai, Synopsis)

The setting is a world roughly 300 years after the end of a great conflict known as THE CALAMITY WAR.

Mikazuki Angus is an orphan with no family, who wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice himself to protect his comrades. And Orga Itsuka is someone who cares for his comrades, has a strong sense of responsibility, and is respected by one and all. They have been tegother since childhood, and the bond between them is stronger than that of brothers. These two protagonists are the axis around which the story develops.

The Gundam Barbatos starts out as an incomplete mobile suit, but as it goes through the fires of war along with Mikazuki and the others, it becomes stronger by adding on armor and weapons from defeated enemy mobile suits.

However, the CGS comes under attack from the armed organization Gjallarhorn trying to nip the bud of insurrection, so Mikazuki and the children start withdrawing as a decoy. The leader of the boys, Orga Itsuka, takes advantage of this occasion to rise in revolt against the adults who oppressed them and stages a coup d'etat.

Mikazuki, who was entrusted to fend off the Gjallarhorn by Orga, takes up the fight by using the Gundam Barbatos, a mobile suit from the "Calamity War" that was utilized as a nuclear reactor by the CGS.

  3. A darker and edgier Gundam series? With total deconstruction to the franchise not unlike Evangelion's deconstruction of the mecha anime genre?

    1. wowowowo expectation over 9000! Calm down.
      I want it too and even Tomino, but meh it's still a gundam show.

    2. Dunno, that's what i'm thinking when I saw the teaser.

      Delete
    3. I think we need to keep our expectations in check. Gundam tv series have traditionally targeted kids/teenagers. So unless this is an OVA, I would be careful throwing around words like "darker" and "edgier" as if it meant something.

      And besides, those things hardly define a show's quality anyway.

    1. As apposed to the half assed rehash that is build fighters try, right?
      Gimme a break.

      Delete
    2. It wasnt bad
      It gave sunrise a revenue to animate a few mechas that mostly appeared in mangas

      Delete
    3. G-reco was a beautiful mess. Gbft? Crappy rehash that always uses Plebsky particles as a deus ex machina.

      Delete
    4. the only reason i watched g reco was to accept tomino's challahe saying its not for the old fans and its art and mecha style every thing else was shit in it buildfighters had at least a ending that made sense to people and yes i realize its a glorified toy comercail but so was a few other franchises in conclusion and my imo build fighters is better no contest

      Delete
    5. Build Fighters Try was made to sell toys, and they weren't hiding it. They weren't shy about Plavsky magic as well given that in the first few EPs, they already stated that Build Burning was made by the Sei Iori.
      In universe, they saw something effective in the world tournament and everyone started doing the same thing.

      Delete
    6. Both of them suck and crappy. G-reco? Theres no likeable character, stupid plot, stupid reason to start war, Hell i didnt even know who is the bad guy. One scene act like they are best bud, one scene they fight each other.

      Build fighter? Please its shounen ish, with powerr of friendship of crap. Bond etc etc.
      Theres no character development, its bandai new ways to use same molding all over again. And will i buy it? No...

      Im fan of tomino works, but that doesnt mean i have to defend his works, if its bad i will say its bad. Thats what critic for, to make encourage people to do better.

  7. Why does it remind me of a valvrave???

  8. Really cool silhouette, really promising. I hope that this series will be the darkest Gundam ever in history.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Looks like a Jupiter MS Crossbone perhaps? Maybe I'm too wishful, that or GBFT season 2

    ReplyDelete
  10. hmm...Looks like G-Reco season 2 to me.
    Just like that Gundam 00 series has been split into 2 seasons.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I get a edgier tallgeese out of that (hope I'm wrong)

    ReplyDelete
  12. That looks nothing like a gundam. Probably a unrelated mecha series.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Excuse me, but i think that silhouette doesn't look like a Gundam or maybe it doesn't look like a usual Gundam for me

    ReplyDelete
  14. Please G-Reco was not bad but got overshadowed by Build Fighters Try and now that both series are complete we are seeing more G-Reco kits coming out, while a new Gundam series is fine we can't expect a superb hit straight off the bat, just watch n wait

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. dude G-Reco and GBF have different kind of genre
      G-Reco is a failure, even tomino admitted it

      Delete
    2. No he didn't idiot, he said he messed up the ending a little. He never said he failed and not to mention he criticized his past work as well. Going by what he said Zeta would be a failure as well and you should know G-reco is more of a success than BF Try in Japan.

      Delete
    3. Yes, both of them have different genres. Gundam Build Fighters Try was to promote Gunplas, not about war.

      Delete
    4. Give me one good thing about g-reco's storyline

      Delete
  15. It is a Gundam series. The website was announced on GundamInfo.
    Tekketsu means Iron and Blood. It will be darker for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  16. looks like a full sized sd knight gundam with the large solders
    that gundam would fit best with build fighters

  17. I hope we get some nice ms designs and kits! (it is why the shows exist after all)

  18. Looks like a Getter to me

  19. QUICK SOMEONE BRIGHTEN THE IMAGE, CHANGCE THE SATURATION, CROP IT THEN CHANGE THE SATURATION

    ReplyDelete
  20. Please, its that a gundam? More like knight armor to me. Bulky arms, slim waist. No v fin.
    Just Dont make emo protagonist, with no kill policy. Super upbeat protagonist, who smile a lot.
    Or emotionless pilot, who only know to kill

    Just make a normal protagonist.

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can see V-fin men.

    2. What is normal protag, someone you always see on lovecom, slice of life or harem story?

    3. @1:22 AM He was talking about the silhouette. The image with details isn't even official as of the time I wrote this.

      Delete
    4. @seabook arno normal character I mean is like just seabook, kou uraki or shiro amada. Romcom protagonist = super dense and super 'kind' and using too much retort.




      Delete
    5. July 8th/9th update, That's a damn big v-fin, no wonder the silhouette didn't seem to have one, those look like they're part of the torso

      Delete
    6. by "normal" you mean boring, right? if this is a new tv series they must have a protag with a certain specific character which will show how his character development going on, either good (like almost every protag) or bad (like shinn).

      Delete
  21. It looks a bit like the knight gundam in terms of the silhouette but I could be wrong

    ReplyDelete
  22. No more V-fin???

    ReplyDelete
  23. Im willing to bet its actually dark gundam for the new G-Gundam remake.

    ReplyDelete
  24. hopefully it will be a new vision of gundam that will not be a bautiful mess like g-recco or a horrible mess like AGE and have awesome battles , not like BF, I UTTERLY loved BF and it's battles but they were over the top(wich I loved) and hopefully we will get an S3 but now it's time to go back to a more mature gundam.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Could it ne Kunio Okawara's Fullmetal Ghost?

    ReplyDelete
  26. maybe it's an armor than can be casted-off?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Looks like Guyver the dark hero.hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wait.............G gundam fighters or G no reconguista?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I do see knight gundam desemblance but overall The arms remind me more of a grunt unit than the typical protagonist type unit. But maybe they are going for a different direction this time. It It a BF3 I have no problem but I'd still love to see Hathaways Flash someday ;__;

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well if Hathaway's flash is going to get animated they need to make the beltorchika's children version of the ccacca movie since Hathaways flash only happened because of a certain event that only happened in the bc novel not in cca

      Delete
    2. Or they can rewrite Hathaway's motivation slightly, to account for plot differences. More likely, considering their pragmatic adaptation of The Origin thus far. Sunrise isn't likely to redo something like CCA

  30. Looks like a Guyver The Dark Hero. :-)

    4. That's highly unlikely to happen outside of Movies and OVAs. Gundam TV series have traditionally targeted children and teenagers. It wouldn't make sense to include a protagonist that's not in your intended audience range.

  45. 3 options. Option 1: Brand spankin new series. Option 2: Sequel to G-Gundam (not the biggest G-Gundam fan). Option 3: Gaia Gear adaptation. If Tomino and Urobutcher are involved. I enjoyed Aldnoah Zero as a whole (later part of S2 wasn't as good) and while G-Reco was a mess, I enjoyed the suit designs. If they came together the show would have a balance of realistic grimness and brevity. Hopefully the characters will be fleshed out more.

  46. 3 Options. Option 1: Brand spankin new series. Option 2: Sequel to G-Gundam (not the biggest fan of G-Gundam). Option 3: Adaptation to Gaia Gear. Looking forward to more Gundam regardless. I wouldn't mind if Tomino and Urobutcher were involved. I enjoyed Aldnoah Zero (except for the latter part of S2, my fave mecha series after Gundam...yes even more than Code Geass, Rahxephon, etc.) I think IF both were involved the series would benefit from a balance between realistic grimness and brevity. Plus he doesn't kill that many characters.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That fan art it looks like it's for a Gundam Evangelion cross over.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Maybe it's more in the vein of samurai style suits? Iron blood and all that?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Looks like they are showing more and more of the silhouette as time goes on. At this rate we'll probably get a good look at the design in 3 or 4 days.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have no idea what G Reco is about. The story is so broken and It's like a mess of chat and fight. And I am very disappointed that the 2nd longest serving MS in the series, G-Arcane hasn't participated in any combat, nor transformed into an MA.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The production of G no reco was not without problems.
      The script was written for 50 episodes but the producers give only 25 episode and when you know that Tomino is not good to tell a story in 50 episode (but good to create a universe), you can understand why the story of G no reco looks like the story of a "from software" game (Darksoul, bloodborne...).
      Everything is in the background or in some sentences.

      Delete
  51. I just wanted to clarify, that picture I sent is an official picture from the G Tekketsu server, I just used some clever tools to clean it up, and was able to pull out and reconstruct details hidden in the darker parts of the photo. This is an official photo from Sunrise, I just was able to get details out if it that aren't visible to the naked eye, and I was able to pull out the color data and enhance it in the proper areas. Sunrise will be updating the site with newer images revealing more details of the silhouette every so often until 7/15.

    TL;DR It is not a fan art, it is authentic Sunrise property that I was able to use some crafty tools to enhance and pull out details to a more visible level. This is 100% guaranteed real official image.

  61. Well, today, the left hand is revealed.......

    ReplyDelete
  62. maybe the series is about massive war,what i mean a japan civil war or a big war in the history of gundam,to me the meaning of iron and blood is the iron is gundam machine and the blood the human who is inside the machine which means blood bath war,maybe sunrise is concern about losing fans so they make this more dark gundam for fans like me who like war in blood and iron.

  63. i can see knight gundam in the new photos

  64. Hey, that shadow image, if u notice, this gundam have big v fin! Looks carefully! U can see it in shadow image ( not the fan art, but shadow image!), so what do u think, uhm that v fin reminds me of v fin from gundam seed, but i forgot the name of ms, the v vin is like :

    | | ( sorry is not to same, but this line
    | | ( | ) it must bend like this line ( \
    | | and / ) but more and more bends,
    \ / because there are not line like that

  65. An important question we need to ask is will it be CG or traditional 2D animation?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Judging from the amount of details on the suit I guess that chance is pretty high of it being CG. I heard that one of the reasons that suits in season 2 of 00 appears blockier than in season 1 was cause they thought they where to hard to animate, so something this detailed I say the odds a pretty high.

  97. Based on Google translate, these are the information I had received:
    1) There was a great war 300 years ago that is labeled as "Disaster War" After this war, the governing body of Earth sphere became defunc. In its place was a new system of governing bodies
    2) The Protagonist is employed in CGS, a PSMC

  98. Okay judging from trailer
    Protagonist is a the kid with black hair. (gosh, Using the same recipe again bandai, at least I want 30 years old man as a protagonist)

    The arts looks like code geass-ish

    The gundam: its good, the only think I didnt like its the waist and feet (subjectively of course)

    Other formulas bandai never leave: One of them probably wearing a mask and become protagonist rival. (Im guessing the silver haired one?)

    Final thought : maybe I will watch it, if Im not busy.

    1. Uhh, Bandai doesn't make the series, never, sunrise does.
      Bandai is a video game and toymaking company.

  100. -All suits use the same frame
    -Powers up by changing armor

    1. This is something similar to the horror we call G-Savior where hardpoints and components were common between mecha. >.> So it isn't that new for Gundam (though I don't think that many have seen or like G-Savior).

  103. that doesnt look that nice, not gonna buy a kit of that gundam, thats for sure...

  104. the design of the waist and the feet is lame

    ReplyDelete
  105. the fan art looks sooooo much better than that gundam!! CAN I HAZ MODEL KIT OF DAT?!?!

    also i find it a cheap way to give them all the same inner frame, come on these are gundams not frame-arms..

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wait a minute.
    So maybe they've realized/admit that G-Reco was a commercial failure overall and this is like a redo of it with everything different?

    At the very least, the animation and art style is definitely an improvement over the huge eye sore that is G-Reco.
    Anyway, I wouldn't call this a Gundam series at all. Maybe they should just drop that name all together?

    1/100 kit? So no Master Grade?
    Also is that supposed to be Bandai's take on Frame Arms kits where all kits share the same frame but just have different armor pieces? I mean I guess that's cool especially if it'll cut down on costs and ultimately mean faster releases and cheaper prices for us. Let's hope quality isn't sacrificed though.

    I'm not 100% committed on this series yet, let alone buying GunPla for it.

    1. Nope, he's going to blog this series. He didn't blog the other series because of its major flaws. This one looks promising.

  111. I am the only one who thinks the new Gundam is inspired by a minotaur ? A V -FIN does appear to have horns, hooves on his feet and a gun is clearly a spiked mace

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hopefully they turn this into an 08th ms-esque story which is what it's starting to strongly resemble regardless of how should we say lack-luster the mobile suit design is but that inner frame for the 1/100 does look nifty, either way we more than likely will grow on the suit if the series is good.But it does appear to be a alternate timeline by a couple things and that is a little thing to worry about in terms of execution.

  113. The Legs is like from G-Recon and the feet is like a T-Rex. its my opinion.

  114. Cannibalize parts eh? Well that makes me taking other HG/MG kit accessories and giving them to my preferred kit a whole lot more justifiable :3

    ReplyDelete
  115. Well.....It's actually the most decent-looking new main-Gundam design I've seen since the Unicorn, so there may be hope for the mecha designs in general for this show. What a nice change of pace that would be. To me, except for Unicorn, almost all the suit designs for years worth of new shows have either been boring (Age), ugly (Rec G), shameful, money-grubbing re-casts (Build Fs), or both boring AND ugly (00).

    Oh and I love how the plot synopsis in this post starts off perfectly readable, then english slowly-but-surely waves bye-bye to it and by the end I have no fucking idea what I'm reading anymore. Might as well have been a chinese cookbook. Not hating; just found that amusing.

    1. Well this is the funny part, this mecha designer is the one who design your so called ugly and boring gundam - AGE and 00. Sayonara! Hipokrit sampai mati

    2. Its funny how you said decent....Decent by whose value? In the comment above you'll see a lot of people complaining. I bet you're a faggot who only worship UC and didnt check another series

    3. diff anon here, so if a designer made "a" good design, ALL his other design MUST be good as well??

  116. Its transplantation not cannibalize parts, that gundam isnt feed by another MS part to make the power supply right? Its restoring part to make it functional so it will upgrade its ability. Just like human being we didnt cannibalize when we change our eyes with the donor eyes so that we can see..its TRANSPLANTATION

    1. I second that. TRANSPLANTATION!!

  117. So the lead mechanical designer is Washio who did Fafner, Isekai Seikishi Monogatari and Valvare. Didn't particularly like 00 gundam design but Ebikawa won't be the lead designer this time, he may design some minor suits here and there, like the grunt suit really have Ebikawa signature on it but the Gundam so far doesn't.

  118. Oh my god, tank mechs. Not just bipeds, but tank mechs. This series has some really awesome, grungy realistic feeling MS. Love the idea that the Gundam takes parts from other MS, such a great idea. It's like they are taking Gundam X's post apocalyptic setting and really getting their mileage out of it.

  119. I always wish for less pew pew beam spam. Gundam with a taste of break blade is always welcome. Classic clash of real weapon, with all the heaviness and solid physical form. Hopefully this is the one.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Gundam as a special unit which turn the tides of war, specially manufactured to be a unit with superior performance by major manufacturer. This time they're manufactured little by little by independent faction consist of orphans. From the narration, the idea sounds great and relatively new and creative approach. And if it's really lack in beam spamming, this gonna be an awesome series.

  121. well yeah i just pre-odered RG red frame over this kit. don't get me wrong this kit is ok but it's not really my type and i'm a lil bit disappointed so bandai? just bring back unicorn and seed Sigh!

  124. Whoa in mars? How can they breathe here without getting caught by the red dust storm in Mars. plus the mars looks similar to earth background? the sky? Or is it some kind a special wall to prevent people without getting caught by red dust storm. the red dust storm have a small piece of pebble could cause people to cough or hard to see in the eye of the storm??

  125. Is anyone a little, bugged by the main character/pilot's eyes?
    It made him look like a non-smiling Ash Ketchum, with steroid-pumped muscles. Maybe a little...

    From looks and appearances alone, feels kinda like a Heero Yuy re-creation in design.

    All-in-all, feeling conflicted about the main character's design appearance
