Although I hate recaps with a passion, this was a pretty good. Made me want to rewatch some old series.

I really enjoyed this not only for the recap, but also to see how the visual quality of Gundam changed over the years.

Would have been better if they redid the scenes. 08th MS team had a really nice short with the BD, was hoping it would have been like that.

Best recap ever because Amuro's dad never hit Amuro.
Amuro's dad never slapped him twice that's for sure.

Thank you for not letting us forget.

Awesome recap! Loved it, the nostalgia~
Actually teared up during the scene where all of them got in their Gundam's :'D

I loved it for what it was. I knew it was recap but I especially loved Hiroyuki Sawano's music with old Gundam footage.

I have yet to watch any of the U.C timeline Gundam series, but want to start up Gundam Unicorn. As a way to be somewhat knowledgeable of jargon such as: newtypes, etc., should I watch this prior to starting Unicorn? Or would it spoil things for the series? Essentially would I benefit more or less?

The only spoilers I saw was up to episode 2. I'd say watch but I'd recommend to watch at least 0079/original to know what the One Year War was. You'd feel more nostalgic when watching the recap.

I watched it yesterday and the spoilers were up to episode 6. You see all the major deaths and the main event of ep6. I am not trying to flame you but that was a terrible advice. The first half would be confusing to anyone who hasn't seen previous series or Unicorn's beginning, like Texhnolyze's ep1 level of confusing.

It's definitely an extra for people who watched everything (and it kind of defeats the whole purpose of that recap since you don't need all the information in that case)

I was hoping this recap would show
-timeline of the series
-why the fighting began
-all the MCs of the previous shows choosing to fight ie first eps jumping into the cockpits
-who bright noa is and his importance to the series
-what are newtypes
-what are cyber newtypes and more specifically what/who is ple ple
-what is pycommu and showcase the psycommu at work ie amuro vs char and lala, kamille vs scirocco, judau vs haman, and amuro pushing back axis with psycommu.

And for the most part it did cover most of that except it felt really rushed. I think it would have been better if this was an hour long special.

Oh definitely. Anyone who hasnt watched the originals will most likely be confused.

Yeah, I never thought I'll say this but the recap was too short; it is 150-ish episodes of materials after all. Could definitely do with it being an hour long.

I keep seeing people use the word recap, but really it was more like an homage to the franchise, not a recap. It did not try to tell you what happened during each series like a recap would.
Blergh.

Amazing :)

This is more a summary what has happened to the events that's leading to Unicorn. It didn't exactly gave you all the details per se. Just the main ones like the birth of new types, creation of artificial new types as well as possibility changing the earth through selected individuals.

Having started watching the first UC era work, Gundam 079 last Summer of 2014. And one year has passed, watching every UC work and even the side stories and being here in Unicorn.

Definitely worth all the effort! Haven't watched the movie trilogy summary versions, but we'll watch them maybe 10 years from now.

One thing i loved about the summary is they did show Judau and the events of ZZ Gundam to Char's Counterattack. Even Plu 12 is born from that event. So for those naysayers out there that keep bitching about Gundam ZZ should be removed in the timeline, go screw yourselves.

The ending scene is pretty much a prologue to Episode 7. I don't know why they had to make a separate episode for this, but fine with me.

Onto the last episode of Unicorn. Let's see how this all ends :)

This was a nice summary of some if not the most important moments that happened in the Universal Century...
