Gunpla... The TV Show

So... Proof that the Gundam train never really stops rolling. in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Gunpla Gundam model kits, Bandai has announced it will be producing a three part micro series called Moki Senshi Gunpla Builders Beginning G.  Since I can't read Japanese I can't really tell you what it's going to be about; based on the poster it looks like Pokemon.  According to ANN the fist part will be shown at Gundam Super Expo.  There will also be a Manga Produced (of Course). 

I'll admit I don't spend a lot of time with the Lighter Subject Gundam Properties.  They've always struck as exactly what they are, cash ins.  But, I'm also not the intended audience, so I've never felt it was my place to be critical of something like SD Gundam or something Beginning G, when I'm not suppose to like it.  Good new is this will be produced by Sunrise, so it can't be all bad.
