the story took place in the future, where GunPla Battles were competitions that Gundam plastic models fought against each other. Sei was the son of a model shop owner, who was talented at building GunPla. however, he was inexperienced in the GunPla Battles. one day, he encountered a mysterious boy named Reiji, who was an accomplished Gundam Fighter, someone who pilot the GunPla. together, they strove for the GunPla Battle world championships.
the series was the thirteenth Gundam franchise of Sunrise. unlike the previous series, which was more hardcore and mechanical, this series was more heartwarming and relaxing. Gundams from previous series could be found in this series as well, making it somewhat nostalgic. Sei and Reiji worked together to fight their way up to the top. while each opponent became stronger and harder to beat, it made their growth visible and intriguing. in the very end, we found ourselves feeling attached to these two characters. like all Gundam series, there were also plenty of actions for the mechas to show their uniqueness and to win our hearts.
