Introduction

The long-anticipated new series drawn out by the creator of GUNDAM, director Yoshiyuki Tomino!

Story

It is a new century, long after the era of immigration to space and space wars. The construction of humanoid "mobile suit" weapons is now taboo. The people of this new century hold the space elevators to be sacred and rejoice in a fleeting peace.

Bellri Zenam, a cadet in the Captial Guard which protects the Tower, ends up in battle against a pirate group who attacks during a training exercise. He meets Aida Surugan, who pilots the "G-Self" mobile suit which closely resembles the legendary "Gundam". This is the beginning of an adventure which will bring Bellri and Aida close to the mysteries of the world and their births.
