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 ...

WATCH IT, IT’S AWESOME! Do you really need to read reviews to determine whether or not you're going to watch this?! While there’ve been many incarnations of Gundam since Char's Counterattack none of them take place in the universal century. UNICORN is the universal century in HD! This kids is return of your parents Gundam. This is why Gundam is approaching 40 years of airings. All the things we love about Gundam are here. Also, despite it being the sixth (don’t fact check me that’s off the top of my head) entry in the universal century You don’t need to watch all of that first. ...

Gundam Unicorn was still in progress when I first began to delve into the franchise. I told myself that I would watch the whole series when it was complete, yet here I was 3 years out from its finale without having seen it. Seeking out and purchasing the entire OVA series was a rather unappealing option, and as a franchise I care about I try my best not to pirate Gundam anime. Lo and behold, I discovered that the entirety of the TV version was available (Officially!) for free on Youtube. RE: 0096 is a marketing masterpiece chock full of stunning visuals and Gundam fan ...
