What is Gundam?

Explore the captivating world of Gundam, a Japanese military science fiction franchise that has captivated audiences since its inception on April 7, 1979. Created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and produced by Sunrise (now Bandai Namco Filmworks), Gundam features giant robots known as mobile suits, with the iconic name "Gundam" at its forefront.

Mobile Suit Gundam, the inaugural TV series, set the stage for the "real robot" mecha anime genre, introducing audiences to a militaristic narrative filled with complex characters, political intrigue, and epic battles. The franchise's immense popularity has led to the creation of over 50 TV series, films, and OVAs, as well as a vast array of manga, novels, and video games.

Gundam's impact extends beyond the screen, with its merchandise—including plastic model kits known as Gunpla—becoming a cultural phenomenon. Gunpla dominates the Japanese character plastic-model market, comprising a staggering 90 percent of sales.
