The Gundam.info website announced on Monday that it will stream the latest Gundam television anime series, Gundam Build Fighters, as it airs in Japan. The weekly streaming will start on October 7, but it will be "limited to select geographical areas." ANN is awaiting a response from Sunrise regarding the specific areas.
The story is set in the near future when Gunpla Battles, competitions that pit Gundam plastic models against each other, have become popular worldwide in the "Second Gunpla Boom." Sei Iori, a first-year middle-school student and the only son of a model shop owner, is talented at building Gunpla, but inexperienced in the GunPla Battles. He encounters a mysterious boy named Reiji who happens to be an accomplished Gundam Fighter. Together, they strive for the GunPla Battle world championships.
