Gundam Unicorn Gets Worldwide Simultaneous Release

gundam-unicorn.jpg

Sunrise’s anime adaptation of Gundam Unicorn (Gundam UC) has been confirmed in an official announcement, and the studio also reveals that the series will receive a worldwide simultaneous release in several languages (Japanese and English obviously featuring heavily).

As is so often the case with these “international” releases, a closer reading of their announcement actually guarantees only immediate Japanese/US/Korean availability, but this apparently satisfies Bandai as being “worldwide.” Doubtless the rest will follow eventually.

The title is set to become the core of a wider marketing push across a number of affiliated companies (meaning there will be much plamo and games), all starting in the winter of 2009.

However, whether the feature itself will be TV, movie or OVA is not yet clear…

    some of these comment written by a bunch of regurgitated shitty kids.Original Gundam(and original timeline) still the best.Without this,all the Gundam franchise will cease to exist.

    Unicorn.. Timeline which not far from CCA. Gotta watch this:) Compared to non UC series (include Wing, Seed and 00, etc), I would like to say mech design from CCA is still my fave. Sazabi Rules (and Shinanju does look like it).

    Include this, I presume almost every gundam series always has Bit-type/funnel weapon which I like:p

    What is the most future Gundam series in UC anyway? Crossbone?

    Links looks like a combination of KatZ & Kamille. It'll be nice if he's voiced by Nobuo Tobita (the one who did Kamille in Zeta Gundam)

    Though I don't know much about the UC era Gundam's and the storylines (except Zeta), I'd prefer the UC ones than the others....Not being rude to other fans of other Gundam's that I really do prefer the Old Gundam series compared to the new ones.

    I'd usually prefer heavy theme's since this is a war story, not a Bishounen piloting robots going out in battlefield kicking asses.

    Don't worry, a lot of Gundam fans do prefer UC. Well, except those fed with Wing, SEED and other non-UC crap.

    UC is best but the other timelines are ok too. The things giving non-UC timelines bad names are the stupid retard kids that make comments that they dont even know. I'm a kid and I'm not as stupid as they are. Gundam is the Best! Cheers!

    The thing about Gundam is...

    Everybody has his own likes and dislikes, so everybody should just keep their own hates about a certain series to themselves...

    Haven't you people have enough of doing all this Gundam fan-base war over and over again...

    If you guys can't say something nice, say something smart, else just shut up... -_-

    ==========================================

    Can't wait for Unicorn. Yet another Gundam anime to add to my collection... ^^

    People only like Wing because of lol toonami nostalgia and people only like SEED because they like shitty character designs. Also known as newfags.

    I'll follow this with interest.
    Hope Sunrise will do an animated version of Sentinel in the near future.

    People who are new to the series always say:
    "Seed is the best so far" or
    "Wing is the greatest"

    Well for me, The return of Gundam to the universal century timeline will surely draw the Z ,ZZ, CCA, V etc. fans back into watching.

    YEY FOR THE NEWTYPES!

    Between "god what a stupid name" and"we cant judge a book by its cover," you're not being very convincing.

    'wing was the best gundam ever.'

    By your first line you have already lost all rights to talk about Gundam. Any Gundam.

    WORD! People really need to actually see other gundam before talking about them. I was watching 00 and a pal of mine got me the remastered version of 0083 Stardust Memories (expensive, btw).

    Due to that, I still haven't finished 00. Couldn't stop myself from comparing them and seeing how inferior it is to 0083.

    00 was basically Wing anyway.

    Seriously, if he had worded it as "I liked Wing best so far!" or "Wing is my favorite!", most of us would have just ignored his post as from just another ignorant noob and act as if he doesn't exist.

    To word it that way is just asking for trouble.

    So what you are saying is that if a certain noob came in with Seed Destiny, he should be excused for stating that

    'Destiny was the BEST Gundam EVER!'

    To hell with n00bs. If you have only seen an extremely limited portion of the entire Gundam series, DON'T use words like 'BEST......EVER!'.

    That's just asking for it.

    Anon is wrong sir. This ballyhoo is uncalled for. Just see the post below justifying my point. If he came in where I did (w/ wing), and saw nothing else of Gundam, that's his position. Give the non-fanboys a chance.

    Fanboy trolls aside, depending on when you first heard of Gundam, Wing would be considered the best. It's #5 on my list now since 00 came out with Gundam 0083, original Gundam and Char's Counterattack taking the top 3. Unicorn is just another weird change to the franchise like Turn-A (underrated) and G-Gundam (-_-). But, this may be a good addition to the U.C. side (except for the dude's cotton candy hairstyle).

    Haha you gots a point.

    Well for me:
    1.Victory Gundam (Angel Halo Can make the human race stupid... With just a push of a button.)
    2.ZZ (Since i ilke the Gunpla model and his badass weapons)
    3.Mobile suit Gundam (Nothing beats the original)
    4.Gundam Wing (Gundam W/ wings anyone?)
    5.Gundam Seed Astray (After beating your opponent into a pulp w/ kicks and punches, why not finish it with a Gigantic sword huh?)

    Wing, because fukken pilots are gar and don't need no space suit to go to a battle. A worn out singlet will do just fine
