Zoids Wild EX-ZERO, the official side-story published in Hobby Japan Magazine during 2020, has announced a brand new book! This book will include the entire story as it was posted earlier, as well as some additional content, apparently, including a new story written exclusively for the book. For now we've removed our EX-ZERO section out of respect for this upcoming sale. At the time that it was posted, I honestly hadn't expected a book! It's scheduled to be released in late July for 3,300 Yen, and is currently available on sites like HLJ and Amazon JP! HJM's twitter posted some clean images
of the first Chapter, while Revolver
posted teasers of the new story, Senki EX, which is still running on HJM.
Republican unit Blood Blood Corps is a unique task force with the intent purpose of capturing and testing upcoming Imperial technology. The group is led by Shishio Ryuu and his Armd Liger, a specialized liger with auxiliary arms used to snatch weapons off of its opponents from the Empire. As the story evolves, they discover the earliest Laser weapons, considered to be a gateway weapon to Zi's most devastating power, the Charged Particle Cannon. The Blue Bloods make it a top priority to capture this laser equipment, to prevent the Republic from losing irreparable distance in the arms race. With each new battle, Shishio's Armd Liger gains more and more equipment from its defeated opponents. Every chapter features a newly remodeled and evolved Armd Liger. Necessary changes for our team to keep up their fight with Lieutenant Cutter, a strange young man from the Empire who has an unusual effect on the Zoids that he pilots.
Zoids Wild EX-ZERO is unique in that it's carefully crafted to fit within the world of Zoids Wild ZERO, the anime. The story begins before the anime series and makes numerous references to the show. This includes a new Regeneration Cube side-story, a chapter exploring the recovery of additional Genospino parts, and ultimately even meeting characters from the Zoids Wild ZERO anime. If you liked the anime, and understand Japanese, you'll enjoy this story. If you don't understand Japanese, it still has lots of nice diorama style images (as seen in this post), customizing examples, and hopefully more!
