There was a countdown at the official website of Gundam: Reconguista in G (G-Reco) recently and on June 23 2014, they have officially unveiled the website! Ladies and gentlemen, may I bring you the key visual of Gundam: Reconguista in G:
Here’s the synopsis from the official website:
“The space migrations and space wars became a thing of the past as the Universal Century came to an end and peace reigned.
A new era, Regild Century (R.C.) was ushered into and man’s life prospered along with peace and it continued for a long time, or so it seems.
Regild Century 1014
A giant tower has risen, linking the earth and space together, the orbital elevator Capital Tower. It is the conduit to bringing the Photon Battery to the surface and as such viewed as a sacred place.
During his very first training, Bellri Zenam, trainee of the Capital Guard, a member of an organization protecting the Capital Tower, is attacked by a high performance mobile suit not from any country, the G-Self. Using the maintenance mobile suit Lecten, he faces the G-Self and manages to seize it.
However, Bellri starts to feel an immediate for the pilot of the G-Self, the space pirate Aida Rayhunton and the G-Self, even though he has never seen it before. Berli somehow manages to pilot the G-Self which would only work if he fulfills specific conditions.
The objective of the space pirate that attacked the Capital Tower Aida, and the fate that follows the G-Self’s chosen pilot Beruri, will lead them to the shocking truth of the Regild Century.
Thus begins the Reconguista”

Well I hope you are excited with the first proper look at Gundam: Reconguista in G! It really feels like it has a somewhat Turn A Gundam feel to it to me, which I really enjoyed. I’ll be in Japan this September so I’ll try to do a short review of the episodes if I’m able to watch them.
But before that, a sneak peek of the 2nd trailer of Gundam: Reconguista in G!
