Mobile Fighter G Gundam appeared in 1994 as a part of celebrations for Gundam‘s 15th anniversary. The title distinguished itself for having a different theme from other Gundam shows. In lieu of futuristic space wars with manned robots known as Mobile Suits, G Gundam featured Gundam Fight tournaments where each nation deploys a representative Gundam formally known as Mobile Fighter to vie for the leading position in the federation.

The protagonist of G Gundam is Domon Kasshu, who represents Neo Japan by first piloting the Shining Gundam. The late singer Yoshifumi Ushima provided two opening theme songs for the show: “Flying in the Sky” and “Trust You Forever.”

Sunrise made the reveal at a special live stream to celebrate the Mobile Suit Gundam metaseries’ 45th anniversary, which was geo-locked to Japan only. Domon Kasshu’s Japanese voice actor Tomokazu Seki was present in the stream together with Toru Furuya (Amuro Ray from the first Mobile Suit Gundam) and Kana Ichinose (Suletta Mercury from The Witch From Mercury)

The stream also revealed new illustrations of the series’ protagonists in party attire to mark the anniversary. The lineup features not only G Gundam‘s Domon Kasshu but also Gundam Wing‘s Heero Yuy and Gundam X‘s Garrod Ran.
