Product Description

The year is U.C. 0096. Three years have passed since the end of the Second Neo Zeon War.

It is said that the Vist Foundation manipulates the Earth Federation and Anaheim Electronics from behind the scenes. Hoping to create a new world, the Foundation attempts to hand over a certain secret to the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. This will mean the opening of Laplaces Box, which holds a great secret tied to the origins of the Universal Century.

The exchange between the Vist Foundation and the Sleeves is to take place at the manufacturing colony Industrial 7. This is the home of the student Banagher Links, who rescues a girl he sees falling through the colony's zero gravity area. The girl gives her name as Audrey Burne and says she wants to prevent a war, spurring Banagher to step into the conflict surrounding Laplaces Box, almost as if he is drawn in by his own bloodline.

Based on a story by author Harutoshi Fukui, the newest Gundam work dynamically unfolds against the backdrop of the Universal Century. It all begins with this first shocking episode.


Sometimes referred to as Mobile Suit Gundam U.C., Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn is based on a novel by the popular Japanese writer Harutoshi Fukui. The story takes place in year 0096 of the Universal Century: three years have passed since the Second Neo Zeon War ended. But the fabulously wealthy and powerful Vist Foundation has been conducting secret negotiations with the Sleeves, remnants of the Neo Zeon organization. Cardeas Vist plans to give them the secret that will open LaPlace's Box, which contains important secrets. Student Banagher Links is drawn into these intrigues when he sees Audrey Burne falling through the zero gravity area of Space Colony 7. Suddenly, Banagher no long feels lost and aimless: Audrey has become the focus of his life. This devotion leads Cardeas to give him the fabulous Gundam Unicorn. Banagher's instant skill at piloting the sophisticated machine suggests he's a Newtype. Director Kazuhiro Furuhashi provides plenty of computer-animated explosions and robot versus robot battles, but he can only pump so much energy into the familiar plot and limp characters. Banagher acts so rudderless, he's not very interesting: Audrey's blandness is played against the tantrums of Banagher's ditsy classmate, Micott. Gundam Unicorn: The Day of the Unicorn premiered on Sony's PlayStation Network Japan in February 2010; the DVD and Blu-ray release followed a month later. The Red Comet, the second episode (of a total of six), is slated for release in autumn 2010. (Rated PG-13: violence, violence against women) --Charles Solomon
