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

Mobile Suit Unicorn is great addition to the Gundam series as a whole and to the universal century timeline.I would even say it can stand among the other great gundam shows and movies like Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Chars Counterattack. Going to into this show I had no idea what to expect since my only knowledge of this show was playing the Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 for the ps3 and seeing a model kit of unicorn gundam that one of my friends had. One of my friends on mal recommend this show to me and I'm glad I did cause read more

Hey, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn is finally a complete package and it's great, but who wants to read gushing? Not me, and I baselessly suspect I'm not the only one who combs through reviews for the most critical ones instead of the most adoring ones. With that said, this review will explore what makes Unicorn either worth mounting or nay, so saddle up!

Let's start with disclaimers: watching previous entries in the Gundam Universal Century is optional, but it is a highly advisable option if you want to get the most out of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. You will be able to follow the story, but read more

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

Anime: Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito 1 - Yokuryuu wa Maiorita
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!  
reportRecommended by Rikudo14
Anime: Eureka Seven
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.

Anime: Break Blade 1: Kakusei no Toki
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
