Gundam Reconguista in G (ガンダム Gのレコンギスタ), also referred to as G-Reco, is a 2014 Japanese science fiction anime television series and the thirteenth incarnation of Sunrise’s long-running Gundam mecha metaseries. Created for the Gundam 35th Anniversary celebration, it is the first Gundam TV series to be written and directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino. It is his first major Gundam project since the 2005-2006 Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation film trilogy and will debut in Fall 2014. It is set in Regild Century, the era set after the Universal Century, and it will follow the adventures of a pilot trainee named Bellri Zenam in the Capital Guard, an organization protecting a space elevator. The character designer is Kenichi Yoshida, and the mecha designer are Akira Yasuda, Ippei Gyōbu, and Kimitoshi Yamane. Yugo Kanno is scoring the music. Airing in the MBS/TBS networks’ Animeism block starting in October 2014, it is the first traditional Gundam TV series to be initially released as a late night anime.
The Universal Century, with its history of colonization and wars, passes into posterity, and time flows on. Mankind enters a new age of seemingly endless peace and prosperity called the “Regild Century”.
The year is R.C. 1014. The Capital Tower, an orbital elevator, connects earth and space. Due to its role in supplying Earth’s power by transferring Photon Batteries from space, it is worshiped with a religious fervor. Bellri Zenam, a cadet in the Capital Guard formed to protect Capital Tower, is participating in his first non-simulated exercise when he is attacked by the powerful but unaffiliated “G-Self” mobile suit. He manages to capture the G-Self while piloting a “Recten” maintenance mobile suit. However, seeing the G-Self’s pilot, a young space pirate named Aida Rayhunton, stirs something within him, as does the G-Self which he was sure he’d never seen before. Why does the G-Self accept Bellri as a pilot?
Aida’s mission to attack Capital Tower. Bellri’s destiny as a chosen pilot of the G-Self. The truth which will shake the Regild Century. It was all the beginning of the Reconguista.
