According to the official brochure, the episode 2 of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn will be released in Autumn 2010. At this releasing pace, it will take three years to complete the six episode series. One of the graphic directors of the episode 2 complained in his twitter that "I didn't know the Autumn release, seriously! Because it's not yet..."

That's quite long for an OVA, regardless of prestige or quality.

omg... that's crazy... 3 years for 6 episodes? that's too long...

They need to learn from Eve no Jikan ... took slightly over 1 year to release everything (although 5/6 episodes are about 15 minutes in length) ... but the quality and story is just top notch for that show.

That is good/crappy news. Its awesome we get a date, but man that is so far away and knowing it will take three years to finish it all. I can't help but be a little mad on that. I enjoyed the first episode but the wait is going to bother me. I guess I should rewatch the UC Gundam while I wait. :P

Not surprising, considering the incredibly meticulous amount of detail packed into the first episode. I can live with the wait if each episode maintains this standard of cinematic quality.

I'm actually quite pleased.

Because we just KNOW that Bandai will use these huge lulls in the episodes to milk the money cow, and I expect at least one of their attempts will be truly worth it...

And the movies are guaranteed to be great stuff, and I will enjoy waking up every half-year to realise, 'Oh, Gundam Unicorn episode X is coming out today.'

That's a really long wait- I hope that they release them closer together in the future or in batches because I cant imagine watching 6 episodes over a 3 year span. I imagine by then at least some of the animators working on this at Sunrise may have retired/changed jobs. The first episode was really great in pretty much every aspect, but I don't see how that could take half a year to complete when sunrise does 24 episodes(12X length) per series in the same amount of time with relatively decent animation. Still, Ill be buying every blu-ray no matter the release schedule.

stop complaining you twats. real gundam fans will wait. the quality is magnificent that the first episode can be a full length movie by itself.

it would be awesome if some characters make a cameo. oh wait that would ruin the experience for everyone.

DARN!! S***!!! OMG!!! Okay... now that all those bad words that came to my mind are being thrown... *zen moment*... *sigh*... well... I'm ready to wait for it... if they do that... that means the quality will be AMAZING!! Well... that's what I hope for... anyway. Thank you BANDAI and SUNRISE for that OVA. It looks great... just make sure that the wait will be worth it. That's all that I have to say.

You're streaming like an idiot, aren't you?

The reason it's being deleted for copyright infringement: IT IS COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. No matter what streaming website it is, once they catch on when they have a license, it comes off.

No exceptions, especially for Unicorn, which already has US licensing.

To be fair, hour long episodes and movie quality OVA. Autumn sounds about right.

I imagine after the 00 movie we'll see a new series emerge.

You know, it's funny, you and I share the same opinion, but about different things.

I really wish some people had more than '6 dam' brain cells, and had 'uptodat' knowledge of the language they're trying to communicate in. I hope I don't have to give up 3 years of my life listening to people like you whine incoherently, and I wish you weren't such an idiot and had a real brain.

Yeah, I'll stop feeding now... XD

On a more serious note, just wait it out; it's definitely worth it.

You understood what he said? Do you have some kinda universal translator or some thing?

Im selling HK-47s and 50s if you need them :D

Seriously though this series is going to be worth the wait. Think about it, a movie like Avatar takes 10 years to make. This series is going to have roughly five hours of footage in 3 years of time. If your smart you won't watch any of them until all are out, but some of us cant resist haha

Think about it, its going to be worth it.

Ways to entertain yourself until autumn: Find the translated unicorn gundam books online and read them.

Didn't it take 08th MS Team nearly 4 years to finish? While there were two times as many episodes, they were also half as long.

I'm kinda thinking the wait will be worth it.

A positive fan response may mean Crossbone Gundam might become a TV series which would be awesome. Crossbone Gundam needs some love. Maybe also a F-90 anime?? That would fill in all the gaps in the UC timeline addressing all the main antagonist. I mean does the Mars Zeon deserve any love?

God I hope not, Crossbone might be ok but I seriously hate the whole F series, it was just one of Tominos many attempts to restart mobile suit gundam, but after F-91 failed he got cranky and wanted to do Gia Gear. Although I wouldn't mind seeing a Gia Gear series
