We don't Build Fight no mo, we Build Dive that....you know.

Ren is the MC, huh? Momo reminds me of the chick from OG Beyblade. Just the color. Sho in his greatest role yet. Who is the Meijin going to be in this? Kyoya? Disappointed that Hayashi is not doing to music. That was one of the best things about BF.

Well,this is a little unexpected. I was hoping for something a little more traditionally Gundam for 2018, but what the heck, I'm up for another round of Gundam Jr. (Gundam Babies?).

Still hoping Gundam Origin gets a full TV series next year, tho.

I... really thought the next build fighters season would be the world tournament featuring both season 1/2s casts that they were building to near the end of Try. It made so much sense story progression wise, and would've brought us back to the much much better format of 1v1 fights that season 1 had.

This thing coming out of nowhere instead... I'm really disappointed and sad right now. Not what I expected or wanted really guess we can still hope its good but if they couldn't manage to do good 3v3 fights how are they gonna do 10v10? This preview isnt promising on that front either aside from 1 minute of it, feels like its missing the point of good mecha to try to advertise as many new gunpla figs as possible at the cost of show quality.

I'm guessing based on the title and the alternate appearance of the characters that they've moved on to a full immersion environment. I expect, however, we'll still have gunpla models involved (for obvious reasons), despite that they wouldn't be necessary for such a setup.

VR being the next step for gunpla battles makes sense. Glad the 00 is going to be our main unit this time.

Didn't see that many unit I was interested to get new gunplay from : (. I guess the grimoire being there is pretty cool.

And of course, there's Gunpla models involved in more ways than one: there's already kits for this series up for preorder. Bandai works fast when it comes to Gundam Laughing

I enjoy these Gunpla-focused series quite a bit, so will probably give this new one a shot. The Kapool in the promo art looks cute; glad that particular mobile suit hasn't been forgotten.

Looks like Build Divers looks like to be a little different from Build Fighters/Try. I approve. Also with some people having animal ears and tails(or in Rommel's case being a talking animal), having VR in this show make sense. Looking forward to it. Also, Yashiro Momoka AKA Momo avatar looks like that one girl from the original Beyblade.

I just got a thought. If the Brave series were ever come back, how cool would it be if it was made by the Build Fighters/Divers crew. Probably wouldn't happen, but I thought it would be cool.

So this takes on Avalon (Reiji's home planet), so how did Reiji's planet learn about Gundams? I'm asking cause Reiji and Aila had a very limited amount about Gundam as a series besides the Gunpla battle circuit. And I'm surprised Baker and Mashita aren't doing any prison time for what they did during the first series.

Honestly more of this? I mean season 2 of IBO was a disappointment but please if a new team can create another alternate universe Gundam show please and save me from this Beyblade rip-off kiddie show nonsense they keep making.

More Game-based Gunpla Gundam series.

Video was good quality and i did enjoy all the previous (full episoded) Build Fighter franchise series. (didn't like the 10 minute video shorts except 1 or 2 of them)

I'd like more traditional Gundam Series as well, but it's what fan base like in Japan is wanting is what the West will end up watching. I'm glad they show them on youtube for everyone. I'm wondering if Bandai is getting away from drama/space soup opera type anime of Gundam given what were seeing. Anime stupidly expensive to make. They have to go what sells i guess.

I thought Build Fighters was aimed at a younger demographic than the average Gundam fan, and titles like Thunderbolt and Origins were aimed at the more traditional fans.

Not disappointed, but not overly hyped.
