A key visual and trailer have been released for Gundam — Reconguista In G V: Shisen wo Koete, the fifth Gundam — Reconguista In G compilation movie. The film is set to premiere in Japan on August 5.
The original Gundam – Reconguista in G series aired back in 2014. It is set after the Universal Century era that the original Mobile Suit Gundam took place in. Crunchyroll describes the series as:
The Universal Century, an era of historic migration into space and space wars has ended, and some time has passed. Bellri Zenam is a cadet in the Capital Guard, the protectors of the tower. During a training exercise pirates attack the tower and Bellri crosses paths with the G-Self, a mobile suit with unknown technology.
As with the series, the staff credits for Shisen wo Koete include Mobile Suit Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino as chief director and scriptwriter; Ken’ichi Yoshida as character designer; Akira Yasuda, Ippei Gyoubu, and Kimitoshi Yamane as mecha designers; Tomoaki Okada and Ayumu Satou as art directors; Nobuko Mizuta as color designer, and Tomohiro Fujie as CG director.
Shunichi Yoshizawa, who was an episode director on the series and the director of Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative, is the unit director for the movies. Additionally, Kentaro Waki (Gundam – Reconguista In G movies, Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative) is the photography director instead of the series’ Yui Tanaka.
Meanwhile, the cast includes Mark Ishii as Bellri Zenam, Yuu Shimamura as Aida Surugan, Minako Kotobuki as Noredo Nug, Takuya Satou as Mask, Ryouta Oosaka as Klim Nick, and Ayahi Takagaki as Manny Ambassada.
The first three movies were released in 2019, 2020, and 2021 respectively. The fourth, Gekitou ni Sakebu Ai, will premiere in Japan on July 22.
