The latest issue of Gundam Ace reveals a new side story running concurrent with Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE and will be done by the same people who previously worked on Gundam Build Divers Break. The new serialized manga is called Gundam Build Divers Rize and will be featuring a new Core Gundam unit.
This is the Core Gundam [Rize] and it completes the Core Gundam trifecta in the Build Divers universe, including the enemy unit appearing in season 2 of Re:RIZE. Using this guy is our new protagonist named Rize — I bet no one saw that coming. And much like the original, it combines with an armor system to form the Gundam Anima [Rize]. Yes, it’s a play on “animalize” (which isn’t even a word) and we see four animal emblems on the arms and legs. You can expect a model kit announcement of both units sooner or later.
In other news…
We are getting a new ‘Battlogue’ series, this time based on Gundam Build Divers/Re:RIZE. The production will showcase Gunpla designs which fans can vote starting this April — the same time season 2 of Re:RISE premieres. This is more or less the same concept as Gundam Build Fighters Battlogue back in 2017.
