I see Marida and her Kshatriya are back in action, I'm guessing the defecting Feds repaired it? Man "5th Mov.: Gundam" gets me so hyped.

Is that Char or Riddhe at 0:23 cause it sure looks like Riddhe to me with that hair bit.
And 6 more months to go, and I was sure it would be release in March too :/

How long do these eps usually take to get dubbed? I want to marathon Unicorn once everything is out in dub.

Around the same time as the Japanese dub. The BDs come with dual audio.

March 2014 release makes sense.

LOL? What the heck is this, a british TV series? Guessing the episodes are ridiculously long.


Hellsing Ultimate took like 6 years to finish for 10 episodes. Each episode is of a much higher quality than a normal episode of an anime, you can see it as a short 1 hour long movie.


Hellsing Ultimate only took that long because there was a change in studio around episode 7 or so, plus all the episodes before 6(?) were redone for blu-ray. Gundam Unicorn will take long because

1. It's mecha, which is one of, if not the hardest thing to animate
2. The animation quality is amazing
3. They do worldwide releases for Gundam Unicorn so dubbing/subbing is done as well.

Moon Phase lists it for March 2014.

There was some rumor about ep.7 to be released in March because of a report on a UC talk show ( http://www.gundam.info/topic/9279 ) but later it is corrected and the date remains as "spring 2014".

Wow that's like 4 episodes and a half right there, 40 minutes longer than the rest of the movies. With length like that its no wonder production is taking so long especially since they want to keep the same animation quality as the previous movies. Also, isn't the English dub done at the same time as the Japanese dub? I'm sure that takes awhile as well.

Now confirmed to be 90min for ep.7
Earlier it was just "planning" but now in the Sunrise Festival, this detail was confirmed.

News like this makes me glad I didn't start watching it yet.

It's better to wait and get quality than get garbage quickly (looking at you berserk movies).

A year? Why? Are they making this episode movie-length or something?
I recall reading it will be 70 minutes or longer.

Just that extra 10 mins than the usual 60? Why not make it 90 minutes? It's definitely worth the long year wait and it's a way to finish it with a bang. Just saying...lots more fandom.
Well, it seems like they've heard you :P

What is so strange about this? You can think of it as a series of short films - that would not look that "ridiculously long" then.
