“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

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

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 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.
