Otaku Evolution Episode 244 - Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn

My Anime News Network review of Gundam UC Episode 1


Gundam Unicorn is full of flashy Newtype nonsense that I love. A lot of the OVAs try to stay away from Newtypes to maintain some sense of groundedness, but this one feels more like a proper mainline entry when compared to titles like Stardust Memory or 08th MS Team, so it's no surprise that it addresses things Tomino typified. I really enjoy how it questions the validity of the very fabric of the UC timeline and its goals. Now, it does this imperfectly, sure, but that it even attempts to is worth noting. But it also has a lot of sparkly Newtype "understanding" that you have to be in a certain frame of mind to appreciate. I think you'll find that while this entry is generally fairly well liked, it can be rather divisive. Personally, it's one of my favorites.
