On the other side, a young officer is executing a top secret operation for the revival of Zeon. Their paths cross on this battlefield.
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.
