According to the official brochure, episode 5 of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn will be released in May 2012. The title is "Black Unicorn".

According to Famitsu.com, the original author Fukui Harutoshi announced at the premiere stage event that "I know everyone is worrying if we can wrap up the story with the final sixth episode, but I have come up with an idea. It will be revealed in the next episode."

Yes for the opportunity to see Marida in the Banshee and no for the fact it's released in may. Sad that such a great show comes with great pain.

I'm not sure if it's worth waiting for. I haven't watched anything from the Gundam series, except first season of 00. Do I have to know the background to enjoy it?

Seriously, who can even remember what happened in the previous episodes with this kind of release schedule? I don't even care anymore. I just watch for nice animation hoping for someone to finally die.

Yes, you need to watch 0079, 0083, Zeta, ZZ, CCA, and then you can watch Unicorn.

Anyone who doesn't watch UC in order is an idiot.
Ok™

It's worth rewatching.

Nice to see a fixed release date, even if it's just the month.

i do not think its that uber necessary to watch a lot of old gundam UC universe just to enjoy gundam unicorn especially the fact that Gundam The Origin will be animated too and i heard its a remake of the first Gundam UC series so you can see Char and Amuro Ray in modern animation

personally i did not watch the old UC series much but ive seen char's counter attack movie and gundam f91 though

Well one of those who were working on the show already tweeted right after ep 1 that at the pace that they finished the first one they're looking at a 2 per year release. So his prediction (back then in 2010) of "the series would end in two years" is proven true now. lol

There were some slight "regression" on the release dates though. It was late Feb, then late Oct for 2010. Then it turned Late April/early May then November for this year.

This episode is taking forever. I can't even get a freaking preview of the next episode to keep me satisfied until the next episode is out. This episode better be good for the long wait.

40 second PV of episode 5
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxsnpMVuHLY&feature=youtu.be

Theme song will be "BROKEN MIRROR" by BOOM BOOM SATELLITES. And going by what I hear/what I read in the ANN article about it, the lyrics will be english (or rather, engrish?)

this OVA is bandai/sunrise's only last line of defense against bad rating from gundam age.

Some time ago, I decided to postpone this series until it reaches its conclusion. I remember awhile ago, with only one episode out, thinking to myself how I could endure the wait between episodes. Hopefully, after this episode comes out, episode 6 will have a very definite conclusion.

I hate to break it to you, but things change over time...due to popular demand. ;)
