Mobile Fighter G Gundam, also known in Japan as Mobile Fighting Legend G Gundam (機動武闘伝Gガンダム Kidou Butouden G Gundam), is a 1994 Japanese animated television series produced by Sunrise and the 5th incarnation of the long running Gundam Franchise. The series is set in the “Future Century”, where space colonies representing countries have agreed to hold an organized fighting tournament known as the “Gundam Fight” every four years to settle their political differences in place of war. Each colony sends a representative fighter piloting a giant, humanoid mecha called a Gundam to battle on Earth until only one is left, and the winning nation earns the right to govern over all the colonies until the next tournament. The events of G Gundam follow Domon Kasshu, the pilot of Neo Japan’s Shining Gundam during the 13th Gundam Fight. Domon’s mission is to both win the tournament and to track down his older brother, who is believed to have stolen the mysterious Dark Gundam from the Neo Japan government.
Commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Gundam brand, G Gundam was produced to reboot the waning popularity of the long-running franchise. It is the first Gundam series with a self-contained plot set in an alternate calendar era from the original “Universal Century” timeline. Additionally, the show casts aside many of the conventions set by its predecessors and takes many new steps for its franchise, such as a focus on martial arts and decisive, personal duels as opposed to large-scale military conflicts. G Gundam was directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa, with its settings and characters significantly influenced by the director’s interest in world cinema. The anime’s real world locales were drawn from numerous foreign films and were planned using location scouting. G Gundam ran for 49 episodes on Japan’s TV Asahi from April 1, 1994 to March 31, 1995.
