To be honest I would prefer unicorn , seeing things like this really made me look forward for it, especially because of the mecha design , I usually I am not a fan of the Gundam models but the Unicorn was just awesome.

But who cares, it’s Gundam

Finally we will get more of UC (if you don’t know what it is go wiki), I am ashamed to admit but I am a bit of a noob to the original Gundam storyline (I have only watched the 3 first movies) but I am already taking care of it.

Well look forward for the new Gundam, I will.

  1. Hey I just thought I would add to the new gundam info you have. as you posted it’s set in 0081 which is a year after the first gundam and will use a brand new gundam model as t’s main. The interesting point is that an older veteran will be the main character not a 17 year old boy/rookie, and the second main will be a girl which is going to be strange considering most girls are either hardened war bitches in gundam or bridge bunnies.

    That already on my post:

    “Hughes Curro: Male. Age 32. A veteran officer…”

    I just didn’t pointed that out because at the time of the post I really didn’t gave it much importance although of course I prefer a veteran to a 17 year old wiener.

    Anyway I think it isn’t such a big matter because he will probably have the typical “17 year old boy ” personality.

    And having a female pilot is always good :3
