Who knew intergalactic warfare could be so…cute? Thanks to our incredible partners at Sunrise, we’re excited to announce that SD GUNDAM WORLD HEROES is officially joining the Funimation Spring 2021 anime season lineup!
This anime series is the latest in the SD sub-series of Gundam, a unique take on the legendary mecha suits. In SD, the Gundam are sentient and take on a more cute, chibi look. And for parents out there, this one is more kid-friendly!
Official description: The balance of the worlds is maintained by heroes. Suddenly a red-hot meteor falls upon one of these worlds, called Neo World. An amnesiac youth named Wukong Impulse Gundam appears at the point where it landed. The chaos that starts with this incident spreads through the other worlds, one after another.
At the same time, Zhuge Liang Freedom Gundam learns via astrology of an impending disaster. He and his sworn friend Liu Bei Unicorn Gundam take action to save the worlds from this crisis, and begin a journey along with Wukong.
What will Wukong Impulse Gundam think as he meets the heroes of each world? Will this youth bring about peace or catastrophe? Now begins a new story of heroes!
From Sunrise (Mobile Suit Gundam, Code Geass) and director Takahiro Ikezoe, SD GUNDAM WORLD HEROES stars Aki Kanada as Wukong Impulse Gundam; Ryouta Takeuchi as Nobunaga Gundam Epyon; Katsuyuki Miura as Sasuke Delta Gundam; Anri Katsu as Edward Second V; Naomi Kusumi as Benjamin V2 Gundam; Maxwell Powers as Sergeant Verde Buster Gundam; and Gakuto Kajiwara as Liu Bei Unicorn Gundam.
