Synopsis

U.C. 0096...

The manufacturing colony Industrial 7, which is still under construction, floats at Lagrange point 1.

A youth named Banagher Links, who grew up without knowing his father, meets a mysterious girl who has stowed away on a ship bound for Industrial 7. As the white mobile suit Unicorn undergoes repeated tests and becomes the subject of diverse speculations, the hands of time begin to move.

Banagher does not yet know that he has been caught up in the conflict surrounding Laplace's Box.

What is Laplace's Box?
What secret does it contain?
The hundred-year curse of the Universal Century is about to be resolved.

“To my only desire, the beast of possibility, the symbol of hope…” – Banagher Links, Gundam Unicorn episode 1

Since the advent of the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079, the Gundam franchise certainly has grown to become one of the most iconic shows in anime and has undoubtedly revolutionized the mecha genre itself. Now we take a look at the long-awaited, most recent addition to the Universal Century, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.

For those who know the Gundam UC timeline it is obvious, however for the newcomers, it should be known that Gundam Unicorn, despite its name, is not to be taken lightly. For the uninformed about read more

"Banāji Rinkusu, Yunikōn Gandamu, ikimasu!!"

The long awaited 4 years for the conclusion to the Unicorn series has finally made contact and landed. To many others, impatience grew to what made people become frustrated with the series. Have they never heard of the saying, good things come to those who wait? Was it worth the wait? In my opinion I’d like to dwell on in this review, it is very well worth it for a Gundam fan.

Gundam Unicorn is one of the more recent additions to have been made in the Gundam franchise, this being the first installment taking place in the Universal Century timeline since Victory Gundam's airing over 20 years ago. Taking place years after the events of Char's Counterattack, Unicorn features several factions in conflict with one another to gain possession of a mysterious item called Laplace's Box that is said to hold enough power as such that it can shake up the power structure between Federation and Neo Zeon forces. This conflict has our teenage leads, Banagher Links and Audrey Burne, caught up in the mess as read more

The latest animation production in the Gundam metaseries, MS Gundam Unicorn is adapted from a light novel with the same title. Although most of the newer Gundam production is set in an alternate universe, this time Sunrise decided to return to the Universal Century timeline, set in UC 0096, 3 years after Char's Counterattack and 27 years before F91. Planned to be a 6 episodes OVA, this OVA will take approximately 3 years to finish. But for me, the wait is worth it, since based on the 1st episode, the series will be an excellent one.

The story takes off from after Char's Counterattack. Many read more

Recommendations

Mecha in 3D graphics, both are part of their respective universe which is kind of similar, has male lead and female lead, both Alexander and Unicorn has same colors, released in the same way each year, epic fights when it comes to mecha, and both animation are brilliant!
Both expand upon the Mobile Suit Gundam Universal Century timeline lore along with 80s Gundam classical art style complemented with great CG fights, modern animation and amazing soundtracks.
The Origin takes place before the events of the original series while Unicorn takes place after.
Both feature a protagonist with family issues using their overpowered mecha to protect an enigmatic girl who falls out of the sky, getting involved in a war they didn't want and enduring out of the power of love.

Both also explore the reality of throwing children into a battle, and are heavily based around the themes of belonging and family.

Think of Gundam Unicorn as Eureka Seven with better animation, a more directed plot and without the mind-screws.
reportRecommended by AF001 - Add to favorites
The latest editions of old space opera; Space Battleship Yamato and Mobile Suit Gundam.
Yamato 2199 is a remake of the original series whereas Gundam Unicorn is an installment in the same line as the original but they revive the retro feel with modern animation.
Unicorn Reminds me of Broken Blade, the story is kinda the same, and all the character all have something in common in both shows. Of course i can recommend Gundam Unicorn to any other Gundam Series because they all have the same plot :P
