"Mobile Fighter G Gundam" is a TV anime that aired from 1994 to 1995. It stands out from other Gundam series as it features martial artists representing various countries using Gundams to compete in the "Gundam Fight" martial arts tournament for world supremacy. To avoid large-scale wars in space, the countries devised the Gundam Fight system, where representatives from each country battle using Gundams on Earth as the ring, with the winning nation gaining leadership for the next four years. The 13th Gundam Fight tournament is depicted, highlighting the struggles and achievements of the protagonist Domon Kasshu and others.

In addition, actor Kanata Hongo appeared as a guest, participating in a talk session about Gundam.
