機動戦士ガンダム00 (Featured Anime)
The year is 2307 A.D. Although fossil fuels have been depleted, humanity has obtained a new source of energy to replace them, in the form of a large-scale solar power generation system based on three huge orbital elevators. However, the benefits of this system are available only to a handful of major powers and their allies.
The three orbital elevators belong to three superpower blocs. These are the Union, led by the United States of America; the Human Reform League, led by China, Russia, and India; and the AEU, led by Europe. These superpower blocs continue to play a grand zero-sum game for the sake of their own prestige and prosperity. Thus, even in the 24th Century, humanity has yet to come together as one.
In this world of never-ending conflict, a private armed organization appears, dedicated to the elimination of war through armed force. Its name is Celestial Being, and it is in possession of “Gundam” mobile suits. With these Gundams, it begins armed intervention into all acts of war.
Another featured anime with more seiyuu tagging along… Three of them this time around! w00t!
The said anime is Frame Arms Girl, aired earlier this year to promote Kotobukiya’s line of plastic model figures.
フレームアームズ・ガール (Featured Anime)
Join Ao, an ordinary school girl, in her everyday life with the Frame Arms Girls, and watch their bonds deepen.
Ao, an ordinary high school girl, receives something mysterious in the mail one day, and upon opening the package, she finds herself with Gourai, a petite autonomous robot called a Frame Arms Girl.
Wow it’s a toy! It’s a plastic model kit!
But! Gourai isn’t just any ordinary Frame Arms Girl.
Unlike normal artificial intelligence programs, Gourai is an experimental prototype model endowed with AS (“Artificial Self”), giving her human-like emotions. Furthermore, this Gourai is the only one in the world to be successfully activated, and by Ao no less!
Together with Ao, who has zero knowledge of the Frame Arms Girls, Gourai gathers battle data and learns about emotions.
And so our heroine begins a curious, yet fun and exciting, lifestyle with Gourai and the other Frame Arms Girls!
Looks like Kotobukiya has an important announcement to make during Anime Festival Asia 2016, and a Special Guest will be invited to reveal it during the Event!
