Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise Second Season Visual, Premiere Date & Gunpla!

The first season of Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise recently ended leaving fans on a major cliffhanger and the announcement that the 2nd Season would be airing in April 2020. Today, GundamInfo formally released a visual and along with an official synopsis. Additionally, they also revealed the staff and release dates for various platforms where the series will be released. Naturally, Bandai Hobby also released images and info for several new Gunpla. Please note: some may consider the following to be spoilers and others that may not have finished Season 1 may want to avoid the synopsis of Season 2.



The 2nd Season will be airing in Japan on Gundam Channel starting April 9, 2020 followed by BS11 on April 11 and then Tokyo MX on April 28. The series will also be streaming on the GundamInfo YouTube channel for international fans presumably starting April 9 as Season 1 simulcast to Gundam Channel and GundamInfo.


Official Summary:

A beam of light, fired from an orbital satellite at the end of their fierce battle, forced Hiroto and his teammates to face the possibility that the planet Eldora where they have been battling doesn’t just exist within the network game Gunpla Battle Online (GBN), but is part of the real world. For a time, this realization brought the Build Divers to a halt.


However, their bond with Freddie and the other people of Eldora, who fought with them against the One-eyes, brings Hiroto, Kazami, May, and Parviz back together again. To find Masaki Shido, the Diver whose consciousness is still trapped on Eldora… To discover the true nature of Alus, the mysterious leader of the One-eyes… And most of all, to save Freddie and their other precious comrades. There is still a remaining “mission” they must clear on Eldora. With the power of their newly built Gunpla, the true battle of the second Build Divers will now begin.

The series’ primary Mobile Suit is the Core Gundam II, which is an upgrade of Hiroto’s Season 1 Core Gundam. The Core Gundam II will utilize the seventh Planetary Armor, the Uraven Armor. Where the sixth Planetary Armor comes into play, fans will have to wait for the 2nd Season to air.


A new version of Hiroto’s custom-built Core Gundam with improved overall performance, based on his combat experience on Eldora. As well as enhanced output and construction, it is newly equipped with transformation mechanisms that let it turn into a flight form called the Core Flyer.


A form of the Core Gundam II docked with the Uranus Armor. Designed for long-distance sniping, it can deploy sensor bits equipped with multi-sensors for tasks such as range-finding, enabling it to perform ultra-high-precision sniper attacks with its Beam Shoot Rifle U7.
