By the year 0096 of the Universal Century, a fragile peace emerges from the ashes of conflict. Sixteen-year-old student Banagher Links visits the Industrial 7 space colony on a school field trip, but because of a broken shuttle, he is left completely stranded.

To Banagher, who has always lived a normal life, war had always been a distant, almost mythical part of history; but within minutes, fantasy becomes reality when he rescues a girl named Audrey Burne, who urgently needs to meet with the leader of the nearby Vist Foundation, Cardeas Vist. She hopes to persuade him to withhold the "Laplace's Box," an object that holds the potential to destroy the world. History is set in motion as galactic forces converge on Industrial 7, each vying for possession of the Laplace's Box. As Neo Zeon remnants clash with Earth Federation Forces around the colony, Cardeas, in his final moments, gives Banagher the key to the Box, a mobile suit dubbed "The Unicorn Gundam."

Packed with explosive action and rising tension, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 follows Banagher as his conviction is tested and the destiny that has laid dormant for more than a century is finally realized.

Gundam Unicorn started out with a lot of promise and potential. The animation and characters were both excellent when I initially started this series. But over the course of the show, there's a lack of character development over time makes for a slightly weak ending. I don't care for the episode format of Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 the pacing get's broken up and loses the flow and grandeur of the OVAs. The OVAs felt more cinematic, and now they just seem to be edited down to 22 minute episodes which feels awkward.

If only the character development was held as well as the animation, this could ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (20/22 eps)
To start off I enjoy the Gundam series a lot, but the one downside with Unicorn is you need some knowledge of the UC timelime. I have some knowledge of the UC timeline, but I haven't watched every Gundam series. Furthermore, the timeline for this show is pretty far ahead of last main line series taking place during the UC timeline; however, if you have no idea what Zeon or Char is, then you'll be lost when they are reference and why they are brought up.

Now in regards to this show, it's decent. It's strengths are the animation, sound, and action scenes. The fights and ...

OK, this anime is OVERRATED. I would prefer Gundam Seed over this. The storyline is rushing, and it has a lot of reused elements.

22 episodes just can't contain all of the greatness of Gundam. The interactions between the characters are sometimes weird. Characterization was extremely limited. Banagher is always too emotional to strangers. He is almost as crybaby as Shinji Ikari from EVA. Daguza Mackle, who shot Sinanju with a bazooka, Gilboa Sant, who was killed protecting Full Frontal from Banagher's attack, and Loni Garvey, the pilot of the big red mobile armor, are all under-characterized. Banagher's empathy with them would be more understandable ...
