I'm going to need to gather up my patience if I'm going to be able to wait and hope this is true prior to rejoicing in the streets. Delicious Unicorn Mecha Designs + Delicious Film Quality Animation + The Possibility of Tomino Directing = Mind Implosion

I definitely like the sound of that...

The UC Gundam series had many awesome mobile suits and mobile armors. The newer series don't have that many because they are on a parallel timeline, whereas there were tons of series in the UC era.

The Unicorn plot looked pretty stupid when I skimmed over it. I wish Tomino would make his return to UC with something else.

Oh well, maybe they'll just cancel the seed movie now, since the chance of that being anything close worthwhile is pretty much zero.

I honestly hope this is true, Unicord Gundam is one of the few Gundam design I like.

From what I've heard the story is awful. The excitement over Unicorn is that it is mecha fan service to the extreme. Thus why I think if they're going to adapt it a film version would be preferable, since Gundam film plots tend to suck anyway.

Mecha fan service is good fun and all, but we don't need Tomino for that. Although if this serves as a gateway for more Tomino UC, then I'm all for it.

For those that like death there'll be alot of fanservice there too, maybe. Sunrise+Tomino is a bad chemical equation that could cause a solution to blow at any time, basically we may see another massacre, otherwise it'll be a flawless victory, so regardless the ending should be either fun or sweet juicy rage worthy.

Personally I don't like the Unicorn look much, but I'll take anything from UC Tomino.

O great, Gundam Unicorn.

Thats that fanfiction novel riight?

I wish Tomino would have stayed true to his word of "having nothing to do with Gundam" anymore.

UC is finished story, with the greatest closure there can be. Finished. Big dot there.

Will pass this.

Definitely UC has left too good taste for me , for it to be tarnished the animated fanfiction novel.

Its not fanfiction. Its produced officially as a side-story and published in the Gundam Ace magazine and has mecha designs by famed Gundam designer Katoki Hajime.

And who cares if you pass on this, that's one less troll watching this.

Its still a "fanfiction" level work worth something only because of mecha designs.

And thank you, o great one, but I feel that i am not yet worthy of such title, since I did not know that expressing your own opinion=trolling. :)

Fanfiction is a piece of work made by a fan who doesn't aim to make any money from it and does not have permission from the original creator to make such a work, Unicorn is clearly a franchise in which they sell novels, books and Gundam Models kits, and now there's going to be a movie, all of which to make money off from. All of which is distributed and handled by Sunrise, who are the legal owners of the Gundam franchise.

I call you a troll because you talk shit, you don't even know how to differentiate fanfiction from a franchise.

You're opinion is worthless as you probably have never read the novels.

You, my good sir, are a text book case of 'judging a book by its cover'. :)

Well, In this case only the cover looks great(mecha designs) :P

I have nothing against the mecha designs - they ARE great.

However the plot, well, Ill stop at that, however I will stay by my own opinion UC is worth more than flashy mechas with no story substance with occasional revival of Char. Even that one where they had the clone of Char was more enjoyable than this.


It will be a "good movie" for those who want to see big mecha blowing up stuff in shiny hd, but it won't be a good movie for those who loved UC. Not because of mecha, but because of ideas, the heart, the spirit, the style, everything.

I loved the UC to death , and Im furiously salivating at the idea of Unicorn into movie.
I Know of Unicorn only what I read people say about it , so I don't know about a story substance , where are you getting that from ? I mean , have you actually read the novel ? or just hatin' on Full Frontal and the Bust mode of the Unicorn ? I'm assuming you did right , because otherwise that would be baseless bashing.
Don't even see what's flashy about the mecha designs. Unicorn is about as flashy as Nu Gundam , and Shinaju as Sazabi.
Really , I don't see what you are on about , but oh well.

All this doesn't really matter either way , but please, just don't claiming you know what's good for ALL UC fans or whatnot because that wouldn't be true.

well here you are confusing stuff :E

Unicorn is "flashy" as in the sense that its an eyecandy design-wise. There's literally nothing that "connects" me to the designs, apart of them being pretty.

Unicorn is basically just that. A fanservice for UC mecha fans, with VERY light and "meh" plotline.


If Tomino would direct a new UC movie - thats alright. Base it on that upcomming game or something. Or let him create new storyline - If The Man agreed to even be a part of project , he would agree to create a story for it alright . Heck I would LOVE to see some epic side stories fitting into UC storyline or something new there


But its all clear in the current situation - Tomino is just a "name" in project.
A bait. To buy buy buy the movie, "novel" and the model kits again and again.


Yes I will surely watch that movie for stuff blowing up. But I do not expect the quality of Zeta or Turn A. I will be happy if it beats ZZ.


Sazabi? Nu Gundam? That's not "flashy", thats the embodiment of teh sex itself :E

Sure is butthurt around here. Anyways good to see Gundam go back to the right direction after the joke that was Gundam 00 S2.


And just to be clear, Fai has not even read any of the novels, since it has not been translated in English. He hates it because Unicorn doesn't have bishonen homosexual androids.

Total agree with the 00 stuff (both seasons = failure IMO)

As for Unicorn, maybe he can read it RAW? or in Chinese? I read up to volume 6 in Chinese ^_^

And here comes our favorite troll...

You know, I wonder which one of us was sooo butthurt over something that he kept trolling each episode thread of certain series.

Let's see on what kinds of amusement that certain person will bring this time. :)

well, thats true for sure :P

It s0x to be seedfag, since their famed LOLMOVIE is already burried somewhere deep enough to not be found again. May the horrors, that lie in that thing, be never found.

Now only one better thing than that would be if Bandai somehow declared LOLSEED and LOLSEEDDestiny as non-canon, non-gundam series.

News Update
According to the cove note of Gundam Unicorn novel, the anime will be released in the winter of 2009.

Source: Scan of the cover note

It contradicts the previous announcement in Italy.
Interpretations:
1. There are both TV series and movie.
2. 2009 means fiscal year 2009 (till Mar 2010).
3. a change in the schedule
4. released this year in Japan followed by the worldwide release next year

I've been waiting on for a return to the UC timeline for quite sometime now. Perfect timing as well, the 30th ann. is this year. I just hope Tominio decides to get behind the directors chair for this one. That would be epic.
