There’re so many people here. Of course there are. Gunpla Battle is
the hottest game right now. Riku, you’re lucky that
I had an extra ticket. Oh… The line’s moving. – Yukki, wait.
– Riku, don’t get lost. There you are, Riku. Hurry, they’ve started already. This is so exciting! Y-Yeah… So this is Gunpla Battle… Here it comes. The champion! We have a winner! In this Extra Exhibition
Online Match, the winner is the GBN champion… Kyoya Kujo! Riku, wasn’t that amazing? I want to play Gunpla Battle too. I want to fight… I want to fight the champion
on a stage like that. With a Gunpla I built myself! (Welcome to GBD) Riku Mikami, 14 years old. Tomorrow,
I’ll finally fly in the sky! Riku! Help! The ball’s mine. Riku! Yukki, now it’s our turn. Yukki! Momoka! Nice pass, Yukki! I got this! Unbelievable… He was by our goal… Is he that fast? Riku, you have to
join the soccer club. Yukio, you’re pretty good too. Let’s win the nationals,
boys and girls together! Don’t think you can escape from me. Run, Yukki. Hey! Sorry, soccer’s cool, but there’s
something else I want to do. And what could that be? Gunpla Battle. Gunpla Battle? Gunpla Battle Nexus Online. Opponents from all over the world. A variety of missions
and vast playing fields… Team up as a force
and play with friends, or aim to be
the ultimate fighter on your own. Now is the time to embark on
new battles and adventures! Gunpla Battle Nexus Online. Will you be able to survive? Welcome, you guys. Hi, Nanami. Came to buy something? Or a battle simulation? I’m buying today. Now I’m in second year of middle
school, I can finally play GBN. Great! But I can only play 2 hours a day,
and I need to do all my homework. That’s important. So I want to build a new Gunpla
for my GBN debut. I’m here to help him choose. Well, you do know
a lot more than I do, Yukki. Now, what would be good for you? You’re athletic, so maybe
a Zeta type with high mobility? An Astray type might be good too. No good… I can’t decide on
the perfect Gunpla for Riku. Yukki, I’ve made my decision. I’m going with this. The 00 Gundam? It’s a strong machine, but… This is the one I want. I’m going to build the best Gunpla
I can with this 00 Gundam. All right, then let’s go assemble
it in the build zone. I always get so nervous
when I open the box. I know exactly how you feel. I love how it
gradually comes together. Same here. This part might be swappable. It’s got a wide range of motion. It’s done! It’s complete! It looks cool even as
a straight assembly. It’s lovely. Let’s see…Gundam O2…
like oxygen? It’s “Double-O” Gundam! You work here!
Try to remember the names. Sorry, sorry. You want some tomatoes
from the roof garden? (Nanami’s farm) Gosh… What Gunpla are you going to use? I’ll go with a GM III. Oh, you won in a contest here
with that one. Yeah, I got my first award with it,
so it means a lot to me. I’m going to customize that. It was definitely a cool machine. Are you going to customize yours? You can mix armor and weapons, or even just change colors
to make it original. That’ll change its performance too. My own original Gunpla… I need your help, guys. We’re going to become
number one together! Riku, you should wake up soon. It looks nice. Yeah, it’s awesome. I don’t know much about Gunpla, but I can tell this was built
with great passion. Thank you, Nanami. Then you want to go for
your first GBN? Yeah! ID data confirmed. Please scan your Gunpla. Login data confirmed. Are you ready? Dive start now. Riku. Yukki? Oh good, I was right. So that’s your look? Looks good! You too, Riku. There’re a lot of Divers. Depending on
your progress in the game, you get
different outfits and appearances. Are they Divers too? I-I think so…? First, go to the Mission Counter
in the lobby, and choose your mission. I see. Hi there, boys. You looking for something? N-No, we’re just… I can get you anything. You want a deal on parts? Rare reward items? Or… Ow! What are you…? Yasu, you said you’d quit
this shady business with beginners. I’m sorry! Now… I take it it’s the first time
for you two? Uh, yes… And you are…? I’m Magee. I volunteer as a navigator so that
beginners like you two can enjoy GBN. I’m just a busybody. Wow, ranked 23rd in the world… Trust me a little now? Welcome to GBN. I’ll show you around. This is the Mission Counter where
you can take on battles and missions. You can start with
beginner missions and free battle, but I suggest a tutorial battle. To get used to the controls. Welcome… I’ll navigate with Gallery Mode,
so just try it out. OK, let’s go to the hangar
and check your machines. – The hangar?
– How do we get there? Like this. It’s huge! You can check your Gunpla here. Like its condition and armament. After you’re done,
it’s what you’ve been waiting for. You know what. Wow, it’s a catapult. You can’t skip
the launch scene routine. Now, go for it! Yukki, GM III Beam Master. Taking off! Riku, Gundam 00 Diver. Here I go! Listen up, you two. There are three elements
for improving in Gunpla Battle. Gunpla building technique.
Advanced control skills. And lastly… Is love! Love! – Huh?
– LOVE! Your skills and technique
will only get better. Good luck! What is that? The battlefield boundary. Once you cross it, the battle starts. In the tutorial battle,
friendly fire won’t hurt you. So you can go all out! Well then… – Let’s go, Yukki!
– Yeah! Mission start. Here come the enemy. Take them all out
to clear the mission. Here goes! Riku! Darn it. Go! Nice going, Yukki. Now it’s my turn. All right! Calm down. Watch their movement, and lure them in. Got it! Right there! Battle ended. I destroyed two machines? Excellent! Nice job, Yukki! Way to go, Yukki. Thanks. Now just return to base
to clear the mission. Yukki sure is strong. What’s wrong? The Leo we took out just moved. What? That can’t be… What was that? You saved me, Riku. Yukki, do you have weapons
for close combat? Oh, that… Help…me… What’s this? An SOS signal? There’s something on the map.
Let’s go. It should be around here. Oh, look! A girl? Are you all right? Hey! – Let’s bring her down.
– OK. You’re awake. Are you OK? Did something happen? You were passed out alone. I guess they’re
just some good Samaritans. Then I’ll go for it. So how is she? I think she’s all right. But she doesn’t seem to know anything. Then take her into the cockpit
using Guest Mode. Got it. Another SOS signal. From where? Huh? Here? My stomach! It hurts so much! Are you OK? Riku, he’s really suspicious. No I’m not! I’m in pain! Worry about me! He really needs help. What’s wrong? My stomach… – Your stomach?
– Please help me. What should I do? O-Open your Console Panel. Open up Settings. Choose the 4th option from the left. Then on the second tab… Wait… No! Don’t! It hurts…press OK. Switching to Free Battle Mode. Current mission progress will be nulled. I’m all better now. Thanks! A Zedas from Gundam AGE? Why? How’d this happen? He made you choose Free Battle Mode. You can fight anyone
regardless of rank. It’s standard in GBN… So you’re the Diver who’s been
hunting rookies lately. So what? I’m not doing
anything against the rules. Ha ha. I’ll start with you. Riku! Just kidding. My legs… Yukki! Nice try. Now your armament’s all gone. I’ll take you out
and earn lots of points. Choose Battle Out.
Retire from the battle. I’ll get revenge for you,
so back out for now. No…I’m running away? My first Gunpla battle… Don’t give up. Your Gunpla hasn’t given up yet. That’s right. 00 and I haven’t given up yet. Don’t be ridiculous. You don’t even have weapons. Weapons… Yukki, I need your help. I’ll finish you off. Here I come. Come to meet your doom? Riku! What? Darn it! Go! I… lost? You idiots! I’ll pay you back in spades! We won? We won. All right! That was great! I’m so glad you two won. It was wonderful!
You made my heart throb. Oh, where’d that girl go? She was just with us… You two had such a terrible GBN debut. What’d you think? Do you hate GBN now? Welcome back. How was your first GBN? Have fun? – It was the coolest!
– It was the coolest! Riku! How was GBN? It was super fun! Sure was! I also got my first win
already! But battle isn’t
the only fun thing about GBN. You can also explore
the extremely big map in the cyberspace dimension! How big is extremely big? The scale of the universe? That’s big! But let’s start with exploring
the ground level maps first! Next episode, Chaotic Ogre. That red GN-X is…
