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. ;)

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

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?)


i just got a NerdGasm on that preview, and Boom Boom Satellite is doing the song rock and roll!!!

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.

After wasting my life watching zeta gundam I can state without a doubt that it is garbage.

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.

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

Seriously, who can even remember what happened in the previous episodes with this kind of release schedule?
It's worth rewatching.

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