Gundam Unicorn ep6: you are not who we thought you were!

Episode 5

I love Gundam Unicorn! I mean it! I absolutely adore this series, and I don’t fear it not living up to expectations at all. It is a “oldfag”, Universal Century lover’s dream of a production. Even when episodes seem to run “cool” (have lots of exposition and downtime), they still are utterly compelling to me.

I got to see some nice One Year War-esque carnage along with the grandness and beefiness of CCA era mobile suits. The beginning attack on Dakar was just a teaser apparently for the carnage that was the last 15 – 20 minutes. Read more…
