Editorial Reviews

Three years after the last conflict between Neo Zeon and the Earth Federation Forces, the tentative peace of the Earth Sphere is about to be shattered again. Cardeas Vist, the head of the powerful Vist Foundation, has decided to hand over 'Laplace's Box', the secret of the Foundation's prosperity, to the supposed enemy, Neo Zeon. Banagher Links, a student at the space colony Industrial 7, rescues a mysterious girl who calls herself Audrey Burne. Audrey is seeking to prevent a war, but it seems she has come too late. As Banagher's home colony is devastated by the attacks of the enemy mobile suit Kshatriya, he finds his strange destiny and is forced to fight in the formidable weapon system known as the Unicorn Gundam.

I have been watching Gundam since Mobile Suit Gundam came out and this series like the original takes place in Universal Century. However if you are new to Gundam I wouldn't start with this series which is sad to say.

The positives are really positive. I have never seen an anime more polished than Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn period. It's like the art pops out at you with amazing color and animation. The movement of the mobile suits really sucks you in like you're on the battlefield. You get longer episodes it appears and it has more than enough story and action to keep you wanting more. However that's just the problem.

The negative is that this series is being released one episode at a time. 57 minutes of viewing pleasure, but the price of the average full length movie and a little extra. Also episode two isn't around the corner it's a few months away. Worldwide releases for the DVD and Blu-Ray, but you won't want to watch it in anything less than HD.

So what about extras, well you will get them as long as you have a Blu-Ray player connected to the internet. All the extras are accessed through BD-Live. So techniquelly it has the potential for plenty of extras, but you may have to wait as not much is up already and once again without an internet connection you are out of luck.

For fans this is more than likely worth every penny. It takes place after the events of Char's Counterattack and is not a side story like many of the Gundam's previously released in the U.S. Bright has already been mentioned, so my assumption is he's going to make an appearence in the series before long. They've also mentioned the main character's Haro is an exact replica of an Ace Pilot from the war.

Gundam fans were elated to hear that the new Gundam OVA, Gundam Unicorn, would be released in America at the same time as its Japanese release. But for those without Blu-Ray players, the wait would be a very long one, as the simultaneous release would only be for the Blu-Ray and Playstation Network, not for DVD. And now finally, patient Gundam fans without Blu-Ray players have been rewarded and rewarded very well with this excellent, albeit way too long coming, DVD.

This video is only one disk containing the first two hour long episodes. The packaging is fantastic, featuring a reversible cover with both Blu-Ray covers on either side. Sadly there are no inserts, but that has become common with Bandai as of late. The content of the disk is the real meat of this set anyway.

Both episodes look fantastic in standard definition. As I haven't watched it in Hi-def, I can't compare but I can say that the show look absolutely amazing from beginning to end. The story is very well told and roots itself firmly in the cannon of 80's Gundam. Fans of the classic Gundam shows will find plenty to love in the story, along with the great mobile suit battles and the very 80's looking characters. This series feel like a natural continuation of classic Gundam, rather than a random story that was shoved in to sell more model kits. There's very little I can say that's bad about the show itself. Everything is tight and both the English and Japanese versions are very tightly cast and well acted.

The closest thing I have to a complaint are the extras. The character and mech highlights are excellent, but the vast majority of the extras are promos for episode 1 and even a recap of episode 1, the first thing contained on the disk. There's nothing on the disk related to episode 2, which was a bummer, but overall, this is a great purchase and I'm glad to see this show finally both at an affordable price and on a format that more people have access to.

I've been a Gundam fan for almost 10 years now, and have spent more money on the DVDs (and no Blu-Ray) and models than I care to even try and think about. That being said, I'm NOT one of those fans that goes "it's Gundam, it must be good!" I try and weigh each and every item I buy on it's own merits - even though my first Gundam series was G and Wing, those are the two series I like the least (in fact, I don't like them at all... )

Having been disappointed by the lack of Blu-Ray release for Gundam 00, I was very VERY excited when I found the BR release for Unicorn. I've really enjoyed the mech designs for the model kits so far, and have been looking forward to the BR release of the anime. While having one hour-long episode per disc is a bit of an expensive purchase (the only ones more expensive in the Gundam universe were the MS Igloo releases, at $50 apiece, and that was just for DVDs) I believe the high production values more than make up for it.

What we have on the disc is a true masterpiece. The visuals are stunning (and unlike some of the other Gundam releases - looking at Seed and 00 here, they don't fly by so fast you have to rewind and watch again to make sure of what happened), absolutely gorgeous, more of an updated First Gundam than anything (which is as it should be). Sound quality is vibrant and balanced, the special effects for the pewpew of the lasers were not tinny; every aural sensation possible on film sucks you in and is absolutely pleasing. And I've only watched it with the English 2.0 audio so far... I'm really looking forward to the 5.1. The music as well is very enjoyable. There are quite a few orchestral pieces that had me wanting to watch over and over again just to hear some of the highlights of the music.

Japanese audio + 120 minutes on 1 Disc???
You're thinking of the original Gundam TV series, in this case, UC = Unicorn, which is the most recent Universal Century timeline Gundam series (set after Char's Counterattack). Bandai will "eventually" get around to the original Gundam TV (remastered WITH a Japanese audio track), but... Read More
