Gundam Reconguista in G (ガンダム Gのレコンギスタ Gandamu Jī no Rekongisuta?) is a 2014 anime television series created by Yoshiyuki Tomino. It is his first major Gundam project since the 2005-2006 Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation film trilogy and debuted in Fall 2014. It is set in the Regild Century, an era set after the Universal Century, and follows the adventures of a pilot trainee named Bellri Zenam in the Capital Guard, an organization protecting a space elevator.

Synopsis

The Universal Century, a history marked by space colonization and space warfare, has passed. Humanity's prosperity has ushered in a new era of global peace known as the Regild Century. Bellri Zenam, a pilot training with the Capital Guard, is chosen by the G-Self-a highly maneuverable Mobile Suit of unknown origin, operable only by a select few—to embark on a journey that will change the course of the Regild Century forever.[1]

Trivia

  • "Reconguista" comes from the Spanish/Portuguese word "Reconquista" which means "Reconquest". Tomino altered the spelling because he wanted a hard "G" sound. This again alludes to the location of the Capital Territory, South America. [6] Reconquest refers to the 800 year period on the Iberian peninsula. "G" refers to the ground.[7]
  • Some Voice Actors had portrayed multiple characters.
  • It wasn't until the 16th episode, that the term "Gundam" was used in dialogue.
  • Gundam Reconguista in G is the first Gundam television series since ∀ Gundam that does not use cold opens.
  • Gundam Reconguista in G was ranked first in Sony Computer Entertainment's initial rankings of anime debuting in Fall 2014.[8]
  • In the January 2015 issue of NewType Magazine, Gundam Reconguista in G was ranked the third best series, tenth most streamed and fourth most watched.[9]
  • When episode 16 was first uploaded by GundamInfo on Friday June 12, 2015, the title of the video was misspelled as "Belri's War". It was corrected on June 18.[10]
  • Even if the series does more reference to the Universal Century as the century preceding the Regild Century, Yoshiyuki Tomino specifies in an interview that G no reconguista takes place 500 years after Turn A and so after the Correct Century.[11]
  • The space elevator featured in Gundam Reconguista in G is believed to be referred to in ∀ Gundam by Quoatl in episode 33, "Captured Manuipich", while speaking with Sid Munzer.
Syd: That mountain looks a bit like an old tree stump.

Quoatl: That is what's left from the Ades World Tree. The areas on the sides of the alter also show evidence of where it's roots once lay. We've seen evidence that suggests the tree was cut down during the war between the giants of the sky and Earth.

Syd: Could this place be the legendary stairway to heaven, the place with stairs that lead to heaven's bagworm?
