This is the new Gundam series aimed for this fall celebrating the series 35th anniversary. This is also Yoshiyuki Tomino, the creator of the Gundam franchise first time directing a Gundam series since Turn A Gundam back in 1999. The character designer for the series is Kenichi Yoshida who worked on Eureka 7 and the mechanical designs is being done by Akira Yasuda who worked with Tomino on Turn A Gundam. Considering the pedigree for this and that fact that Turn A Gundam is one of the best in the franchise I'm very excite for this show despite Tomino wanting to target children with this. Plot [spoiler]The series takes place in the timeline after Universal Century, called Regild Century (R.C.), in the year R.C. 1014, and follows the story of a young pilot cadet named Bellri Zenam (ベルリ・ゼナム?), who is a member of the Capital Guard, an organization charged with protecting the orbital elevator, the Capital Tower. When the Capital Tower was under attack by a band of space pirates called the Pirate Corps, Bellri encounters and captures a highly advanced mobile suit, the G-Self, and its pilot, Aida Surgan (アイーダ・スルガン?). Feeling an immediate connection with both the G-Self and its pilot, Bellri was somehow able to pilot the mobile suit, which is only operable by a few. Joining the Pirate Corps to fight the Capital Army, Bellri and the rest of the pirates would be involved in a plot that will shake the entire Regild Century era.
