Yay for PSN. Rumor has it that subtitles are there also in JP release. Nisan nichi and it should be out 'underground' ^_^

Downloading raw at the speed of light!

edit: Amazing. Even more awesome than I was expecting it to be. The animation/art and character- and mecha designs were incredibly good and everything looked really detailed. And the music, holy shit!

Now I feel depressed because I'm gonna have to wait such a long time for the next episode to be released. Oh well - Let's just wait for subs first, lol. I'm gonna rewatch it so many times.

Just watched it. I thought it was pretty good, but not great. Kinda confusing, but hopefully the next episode will be better. Does anyone know when it will be out?

You've only watched Gundam 00. You need to have seen the original Gundam series and it's sequels. People like you won't understand anything.

I loved this episode, but I never watched the original gundam series, is that really necessary? is this a sequal/prequal of the original series or something? If I have to I will gladly watch the originals, but id love to know how they are related to this season first.

The only thing is you won't really know why Audrey Burn is important.

Awesome, great and YAY for the animation with 3D if you notice it!!

I really like when MS Unicorn change into that Gundam xD I'm glad my waiting days paid off xD

Dark, complex, realistic, intense, with absurdly high production values, it seems like Unicorn is the best thing to come out of the saga since Turn A and is simply what Gundam 00 should have been. This opening episode was just spectacular on every level and a true feast for the eyes, the ears and the mind for the UC fan that I am. It's just awesome.

This is superb... i had the exact same reaction to the action/tension..and etc just like Ep14 of Gundam00 of 4 vs 1000

I've never saw the original series, but can someone explain the sides? thats the only thing it confuses me...

So theres London Bell - the raiders...i assume they are earth fed?
then theres the colonists which were barely existent...
then theres the one the princess is with? im assuming they are like a private military corp or something?

its just with all the fighting i dont exactly get who is on which side fighting who

O Yes UC baby, I can tell from the fact they dont take it lightly on killing civilians. Now if only Tomino was directing this >=).

And to those to haven't seen any series in the UC timeline, you guys are missing out on why the anime is called Gundam. Anyways it hard to explain who each factions are without spoiling a lot of stuff so i suggest you guys watch the original series or read it off a wiki.

Holy fuck me in the face ! The was awesome, if this keeps up it will quickly become the best Gundam to date.

Banagher is pretty nice breath of fresh air, while still being some thing familiar, He more Bad Ass then Kamile and Amuro, but still has enough angst to let you know this is a UC gundam series.

And Unless you haven't watched Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam Zeta and Char's Counter attack, your fucking missing out.

Just OMG I have missed UC so god damn much. Finally we get a real entry.

Also anyone else notice this little Easter Egg? It was from when they where walking around the colony eating hot dogs



Now unless your a Total UC fanboy your not gonna get this and even if you are it's still kinda hard to decipher.

Feels like old school Gundam they even didn't forget to include the crappy main characters with stupid motivations.

Obviously I loved it.

They also did a good job trying to introduce the Gundam universe to new fans.

A quick and rather bare bones rundown for people who haven't seen previous U.C. installments:

Mobile Suit Gundam: The One Year War was a conflict between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon (Side 3) led by the Zabi clan. It stemmed from the fact that Zeon wanted to break away from the colonial rule imposed upon them by the Federation and left the other Sides either allying with the Federation, in ruin from Zeon attack, or claiming neutrality. Of course Gihren Zabi was a Space Nazi to justify our heroes aboard the White Base and the Federation winning despite the fact that space colonies wanting autonomy is a valid claim (which seems to be the basis of Unicorn currently).

Zeta Gundam: The Gryps Conflict was fought between the Earth Federation which, since the OYW, had become highly corrupt at the hands of the Titans, and the Anti-Earth Union Group, which was a political faction within the Earth Federation that opposed the fascist policies of the Titans. During this conflict the Axis, a group that consisted of the remains of Zeon who had retreated to the asteroid Axis after being defeated in the OYW, emerged and became the true victor of the Gryps Conflict by playing the Federation and AEUG against each other in order to build an army that would be known as Neo Zeon. It's important to note for Unicorn that Mineva Lao Zabi ("Audrey Burn"), Dozle Zabi's daughter, was used as a figurehead by Haman Karn to give her the ability to lead the Axis and Neo Zeon due to Mineva being the last surviving member of the Zabi clan.

ZZ Gundam: Not anime, therefore it doesn't count. Seriously though, the first Neo Zeon movement eventually ends not long after the death of Haman Karn because of a civil war in the ranks of the Zeon sparked by Glemy Toto who proclaims himself as Gihren Zabi's clone.

Char's Counterattack: A second Neo Zeon movement is headed by Char Aznable (who is the son of Zeon Zum Deikun, the founder of the Republic of Zeon prior to it becoming a Principality under the Zabis) who fell off the map after Zeta Gundam. This is where the Londo Bell was first introduced since it was a ship under the command of Bright Noa (who commanded the White Base in the original Gundam and the Argama in Zeta and ZZ). Char's genius plan for this new Neo Zeon was to speed up the migration of humanity to space by purchasing the Axis asteroid from the Federation government and chucking it at the Earth in order to make it uninhabitable. It was stopped by Amuro because he was the good guy, but both Char and Amuro died as a result of this.

Gundam Unicorn: From what it looks like so far, remnants of Neo Zeon wish to acquire the contents of Laplace's box so they can use them to justify and gain support for another war based on the ideal of self-governance. Mineva is against this, but fails to stop the war from erupting obviously. Full Frontal, as a result of being a Char clone (literally for once), is most likely the one these remnants are rallying around.

I loved this episode- the animation was top notch, some of the best Ive ever seen. VA was very good and the story looks really promising (I haven't read the manga so its not spoiled). I would have preferred if they had released at least two episodes at once but oh well. Out of all the Gundam series so far this is looking to be the best.

Next best thing since Mobile Suit Gundam: 08th MS Team (which is my personal favorite from the MSG series and alongside it is Gundam Wing), but after watching this, Gundam Unicorn, my feelings for Gundam (after thinking it died after Gundam Seed, dont get me wrong not saying it was bad just not my favorite, it was good though) have been revived. Gundam unicorn was amazing im really stoked about it, but this is my opinion, thanks for reading, laterz.

Quick run down of the groups.

Londo Bell: They are special forces of the Federation army and Commanded by Bright Noa, former captain of White Base during the one year war. They are made up of former AEUG personnel after they where reintroduced back into the Federation after the Titan Conflict in Gundam Zeta.

Neo Zeon: Remnants of the second Neo Zeon movement, created by Char in Char's Counter attack. Currently making another bid for independence.

Anaheim Electronics: Civilian Mega Corporation, makes everything from personal computers, to mobile suits and space colonies. Links is currently studying at one of their training centers. Also they made just about every Gundam to date. Aside from a few models.

I really enjoyed this. They really did a good setup of what is going on. How the people interact was pretty impressive also. Now that worst part waiting who knows how long for the next episode to come.

Where'd you hear that from? I highly doubt it would be a half year between episodes. Other wise it would take 3 years just to show 6 episodes.


Its a ova for a reason it going to be like hellsing ultimate

I know it's an OVA, but so was War in the Pocket, which had 6 episodes and aired all in the same year. and Stardust Memory which had 13 episodes and took a bit over 1 year to air. And then the MS Igloo OVAs which did not have 6 months in between episodes. Those are all Gundam OVAs, why would this be any different?

I'll be rewatching this episode until it's all edged into my memory. I'm also planning on watching most UC Gundams before the next episode comes out.

That was amazing. I'm astounded with the great launch into the Unicorn story, and I think it's great they didn't try to rush the action.

They obviously knew what they were doing; it's a movie, so pace it like one.

This one is going to be hard to top in my book... It took everything I could look for in a UC Gundam series, and did a psychoframe overload on it.

I'll look foward to the next three years. XD

Because even though this is an OVA it's more like 6 movies, each with a theatrical release. Also they are almost an hour long, with movie quality visuals. The other OVA's where more like standard OVA's . Just a series that didn't air on TV.

on a side note: One the blue ray comes out I'll probably watch it again, but I'll throw it on my Plasma TV instead of watching it on my laptop.


Also anyone who is finding it hard to rewatch or watch the Original Mobile Suit Gundam, Watch the 3 movies, they just condense it and give you a crash course. I love Gundam, but watching the original more then once it quite a chore.

i just can't believe how awesome this is.. it had everything from animation, char design, detail, music, realism, intensity, mecha action, non-mecha action, pace that is enough to make you want the next, story that resembles a good UC Gundam series, and the typical Gundam's main hero.. i just love it.. i don't care if i have to be on standby for it for three years.. it's just so awesome.. and i guess i'll finally be able to watch and rewatch UC gundam series completely by that time..

Sure. Why not? I'm watching the first Gundam right now, and it's great. And if you don't want to watch all the TV-anime you could just watch the compilation movies for each, or simply read the basic story at wiki. But I definitely recommend watching all the Gundams!

On top of this,


I think it would be very prudent if you want to understand Unicorn to read the UC TimeLine and it would probably be a good idea to read theMobile Suit Gundam Unicorn wiki too.

Or you could just spend a couple of intense months of your life watching all the UC series. I'm guessing that by the production value of this Gundam, most Gundam fans, even the rooks will enjoy this ova weather it's their first Gundam show or not. Of course for the seasoned veterans it's just gravy.

If you really wanna know what is here:


Good eyes! I noticed this but it didn't click until I read this. I'm gonna have to keep my eyes pealed wider to pick up all these little treasure troves UC facts. I really don't want to wait six months for the next episode. I would think three months would be painful enough. I agree with SilentXenocide, three years is just extreme. Not even Kara no Kyoukai took three years to finish with it's 7 movies. Well it took two years and eight months to finish, but still it had seven movies not six ova's. Whatever, I guess I'll just be thirsting for some more Gundam for a while. Still not completely thrilled with the Pink Gundam. LoL!
