In the world of the Cosmic Era, a war is under way between the genetically enhanced breed of humans known as Coordinators and those who remain unmodified, called Naturals. The Natural-dominated Earth Alliance, struggling to catch up with the Coordinator's superior technology, has secretly developed its own Gundam mobile suits at a natural space colony.
But through a twist of fate, a young Coordinator named Kira Yamato becomes the pilot of the Alliance's prototype Strike Gundam, and finds himself forced to fight his own people in order to protect his friends.
Presented in traditional Japanese Right-to-Left format.
