The wraparound jacket band on reprints of Harutoshi Fukui's Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn space robot novels have reportedly confirmed that an anime adaptation has been green-lit for this winter. The jacket band does not specify the release format of the anime project. The story is mainly set in the year of Universal Century 0096 — three years after Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack, the last anime to feature the protagonist Amuro and antagonist Char of the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series.
Before penning Gundam Unicorn, Fukui wrote the stories of the C-blossom - case729 and Samurai Commando: Mission 1549 manga. Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (first Mobile Suit Gundam, Venus Wars, Arion) designed the characters and Hajime Katoki (Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Mobile Suit Victory Gundam, Gundam Wing Endless Waltz Special Edition) designed the mecha in the novels' illustrations.
