That's it? Just a 6-episode OVA?

I'm more underwhelmed than anything else. I mean, I'll watch it and probably enjoy it, but I'm sure that a lot of other fans and I are bound to be left wanting more.

08th MS team, 0083, 12/13 normal length (or a bit longer) episodes.
Unicorn, 6 double length episodes.

If anything, cry for 0080. :[

If I recall, the novel series isn't complete yet, so it'll probably be finished off in the future.

Yes it sucks that Unicorn gets high production ova values and tight pacing which should follow the novel and not have any padded bullshit, oh woe is me.

Are they going to release all the 6 episodes in spring or they'll release every episode after a few months like they did it with Macross Zero?

This is so much better than it being a film or a TV series. If it were a film it would be rushed to hell like F91 and if it were a TV series we would get a dozen episodes of nothing happening in the middle of the series and shit art and animation that Sunrise would end up correcting for DVD releases. Nice job for once people planning this stuff.

Exactly, lol @ ppl getting butthurt about this being OVAs. Animation for this is going to shit over 00 and 6x50 minute episodes is nothing to complain about. It's based on 2 light novels so if they split time evenly that's 150 minutes per light novel. That works out to be around the same length as 6 tv episodes, considering most light novel adaptions get 3-4 episodes per light novel that's more than enough time.

And there's still 6 more novels to adapt, but hey lets whine instead and cry about shows like SEED and 00 getting 50 eps even though the main reason they suck is padded out bullshit.

Oh no lol wuts. Its quite easy to understand you see:

There's a gundam which looks like unicorn and it can also turn pink

Oh and Char is (obviously) alive under another nickname.


I'll probably watch it for the lulz and action.

Good stories in UC ended with Zeta.

That said, I seem to recall reading elsewhere that he will also be assisting with the adaptation, so it shouldn't be a problem (hopefully).

Knowing Sunrise they could have stretched it out for 50 episodes successfully, but no they'd rather wipe their ass with more Gundam SD movie remakes.
