It is the year Future Century 60 and most of humanity has migrated to orbiting space colonies, leaving behind the polluted Earth. To prevent war, the colonies came up with the tournament known as the Gundam Fight. Every country builds a Gundam and sends it to Earth. These Gundams fight each other, using the entire planet as the ring, for eleven months until the finals begin in the country that won the last Gundam Fight. Whichever country is ultimately victorious will control the entire world for four years. This year, Neo Japan has sent Domon Kasshu with the Shining Gundam in hopes of winning the 13th Gundam Fight. However, Domon, and his assistant, Rain Mikamura, have more to worry about than winning the Gundam Fight. They have a concurrent mission, to confront and destroy the stolen Devil Gundam... Written by

This series is obviously the commercial wing of the Gundam saga. Though it does have some character development and such, it pales in comparison to the other Gundam series. Besides, this show betrays the idea of a united humanity that is present in all the other series (no country is mentioned by name in any of the series except for geographical reference). The gundam for every country idea is easily marketed, easily seen at the local toy store, where G Gundam action figures heavily outnumber other Gundam models or figures. In short, mainly a trailer for the toy, like so many other cartoon shows these days. See Gundam Wing, 0080, 0083, Mobile Suit Gundam, or 08th MS Team for a much better taste of the Gundam saga.
