In the year Universal Century 0096, three years after Char Aznable's failed attempt to force human migration into space, life continues in the colonies orbiting Earth. One such colony, at Side 4, is home to Banagher Links, a 16-year-old who lives a quiet life among his classmates.

Audrey Burne, the last descendant of a great tyrannical family, takes it upon herself to steal the key to a mysterious device known as "Laplace's Box." It is said that the Box has the power to shape the course of the universe, and Audrey travels to Side 4 in an attempt to take it from its current holder and keep it from the Sleeves, the surviving remnant of Char Aznable's Neo-Zeon. In her search, she stumbles across Banagher and changes his life forever.

When Side 4 comes under the attack of the Sleeves and its prolific fighters Marida Cruz and Full Frontal, Banagher takes control of the newly built Gundam Unicorn to defend his friends and protect the fate of humankind.

Gundam Unicorn is peak Military focused Gundam. The story has the least dumb moments and shitty romance and if you know gundam you know that gundam is full of shitty romance.

The guy who came up with the english names for the people in this show should be given a raise. I have never laughed as much as i have at the name Full Frontal. It is the greatest name in all of Gundam.

There are more Mobile suits in this show than there are types of ships in the Navy. Holy shit its gonna cost me so much money to buy all the Unicorn Gunpla. ...

Mixed Feelings
This series simultaneously does a lot right while also hitting the usual pitfalls of Gundam Universal Century entries. To start on the right side, I think the characters are more interesting here.

In particular, it's nice to see a series handle cyber Newtypes in a much more interesting way through Zinnerman and Marida. The series doesn't lean too heavily on familiar faces, crafting a variety of morally gray characters with ...

Having marathoned several Gundam shows, starting with the Gundam 0079 movie trilogy and making my way to Wing, as well as having watched 08th MS Team, other Gundam nerd friends of mine convinced me to watch Unicorn. Going into it, I had an understanding that it was a highly regarded entry in the series, that was well animated and tied deeply into the narratives of the UC shows. You can see from many of the other reviews here that a perfect 10 is a quite common rating.

For myself, though, Unicorn turned out to be an exercise in disappointment and exasperation.

Step one, we'll get the ...
