It’s not exactly the Gundam announcement i was hoping for but UK Anime Distributor have announced that they have acquried the UK Streaming and Digital Distribution rights to Gundam Reconguista in G; the latest chapter in the ever-growing Gundam anime franchise.

Seeing as Gundam Reconguista in G is the ‘latest’ series here is a brief synopsis of what we can expect:

The Universal Century, an era of historic migration into space and space wars has ended, and some time has passed.

It’s now Regild Century Year 1014 (R.C. 1014) where the creation of humanoid mobile suits of war is now taboo and Earth is connected to space via the sacred orbital elevator, Capital Tower, which humanity uses to bring energy in the form of Photon Batteries to the surface.

Bellri Zenam is a cadet in the Capital Guard, the protectors of the tower. During a training exercise pirates attack the tower and Bellri crosses paths with the G-Self, a mobile suit with unknown technology. Bellri is successful in capturing the suit and it’s pilot, Aiida Reihanton, and soon discovers the G-Self, which should only be operable under certain conditions, will now move under his own hand. Now Bellri must pilot the G-Self to uncover the mysteries behind the space pirates, the G-Self and his own destiny. These truths will shke the entire Regild Century to it’s core and this is just the beginning of Reconguista.

All The Anime will distribute Gundam Reconguista in G through Vimeo, the online video-streaming service, whereby each episode will be available 1-hour after the original Japanese broadcast. However in order to actually view the episodes you’ll need to either rent them or buy them; each episode will cost $1.28 (£0.79 GBP) to rent or $2.40 (£1.49 GBP) to buy; alternatively the entire series can be purchased for $48.00 (£29.78 GBP) and at the moment ‘complete series’ purchases can receive a 10% discount by using the disocunt code ALLTHEGUNDAM at the checkout.

Each of the episodes will be in Japanese with English Subtitles; furthermore the first episode will be available to watch for FREE through the Viemo website.

As it stands All The Anime have yet to reveal if they have acquried the UK Home Video (DVD and Blu-ray) license for distributing the series, but seeing as the series is ‘only just’ about to be broadcast in Japan this announcement make take several months to surface.
