Gundam Unicorn Novels' Anime Adaptation Reportedly Confirmed
posted on by Egan Loo
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.
