The Universal Century, with its history of colonization and wars, passes into posterity, and time flows on.

Mankind enters a new age of seemingly endless peace and prosperity called the "Regild Century".

The year is R.C. 1014. The Capital Tower, an orbital elevator, connects earth and space. Due to its role in supplying Earth's power by transferring Photon Batteries from space, it is worshiped with a religious fervor. Bellri Zenam, a cadet in the Capital Guard formed to protect Capital Tower, is participating in his first non-simulated exercise when he is attacked by the powerful but unaffiliated "G-Self" mobile suit. He manages to capture the G-Self while piloting a "Recten" maintenance mobile suit. However, seeing the G-Self's pilot, a young space pirate named Aida Rayhunton, stirs something within him, as does the G-Self which he was sure he'd never seen before. Why does the G-Self accept Bellri as a pilot?

Aida's mission to attack Capital Tower. Bellri's destiny as a chosen pilot of the G-Self. The truth which will shake the Regild Century.

It was all the beginning of the Reconguista.

This was a mess. Gundam: Reconguista in G was made in mind to celebrate the Gundam franchise's then 35th anniversary and having Yoshiyuki Tomino be the director of this series. Sadly though, this series spawns an incoherent mess of ideas, factions, story direction, and characters. Factions within the series aren't clearly defined with their motives and beliefs until you see who they're gunning after in battle and any ideas that it would have to explore that seem good on paper (religious corruption, class discrimination, energy conservation) are mish-mashed together and are not smoothly integrated into a cohesive plot. In addition, all the characters are mostly archetypes typical of past Gundam titles that don't have much development or back story to flesh them out. Overall, this is easily among the weaker quality titles of the Gundam franchise that I've had the opportunity of seeing and you aren't missing out on much if you skip it since this is yet another alternate continuity title within the mecha franchise.
