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.

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 read more

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. read more

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 read more

I began to see this series hoping to find something worse than what I found, and also for the morbid desire to see how wrong the criticism was or not. Here is not the case, but in various Internet forums such as "Spacebattles" I've finished a bit burned to read all furious critics attacking this series, with a fury that I have only seen in haters declared Cosmic Era. Among other affirmations, the fanaticada denies the canonicity of Unicorn with the "accusation" of "being pro-Zeon propaganda to leave the Federation wrong and in that way that the Zeonians look good". Personally I think that there read more
