The time is the near future. Years have passed since the 1980s, when ''Gunpla'' plastic models based on the ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' animation created a huge boom. Now, a new wave is sweeping the world, in what could be called a second Gunpla boom. Its popularity is driven by ''Gunpla Battle'', in which assembled Gunpla can be controlled and made to fight. With the introduction of this revolutionary Battle System, its popularity has expanded to the point that a Gunpla Battle World Tournament is held each year. The main character of the story, Sei Iori is a young Gunpla builder who loves Gunpla and dreams of entering the Gunpla Battle World Tournament. As the only heir to a hobby shop, he has high Gunpla building abilities, but he doesn't know how to control them in battle and is continually defeated in the opening rounds of tournaments. When he meets Reiji, a mysterious boy with superb Gunpla control skills, they team up to take on the World Tournament.Contains all 25 episodes.

Yasuna Oribe isn't your typical Japanese high school girl. For one thing, she's a little slow on the uptake, and for another, her best friend, Sonya, is actually a highly trained foreign assassin. Though, as Sonya has the habit of regularly attacking her, perhaps Yasuna's definition of "best friend" is a bit strange. However, as noted, Yasuna isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. And while Sonya knows precisely what to do with every one of those sharp objects, even she is hard pressed to deal with the day-to-day oddities that seem to fill their class schedule. Things like: escaped bears, voodoo curses, juggling, and killer mosquitoes. Not to mention puppet shows. And just in case Yasuna's school-life wasn't weird or hazardous enough, there's her ninja classmate, Agiri, assassins targeting just about everybody, a mysterious red haired girl with a personal vendetta, and the perils of slipping in the public bath. They say a little education can be a dangerous thing, but with a school life like this, Yasuna will be lucky to keep breathing past third period in KILL ME BABY!
