Title:Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn
Also Called:Gundam UC | Kidou Senshi Gundam Unicorn | 機動戦士ガンダムUC
Released on year:2016
A fragile peace emerges from the ashes of conflict by the year 0096 of the Universal Century. Banagher Links, a sixteen-year-old student, goes on a school field trip to the Industrial 7 space colony, but is stranded due to a broken shuttle.
War had always been a distant, almost mythical part of history for Banagher, who had always lived a normal life; but fantasy becomes reality within minutes when he rescues Audrey Burne, who urgently needs to meet with Cardeas Vist, the leader of the nearby Vist Foundation. She hopes to persuade him to keep the "Laplace's Box," an object with the potential to destroy the entire world, hidden from him. As galactic forces converge on Industrial 7, each vying for possession of the Laplace's Box, history is set in motion. Cardeas gives Banagher the key to the Box, a mobile suit dubbed "The Unicorn Gundam," as Neo Zeon remnants clash with Earth Federation forces around the colony.
Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 follows Banagher as his convictions are put to the test and a destiny that has lain dormant for more than a century is finally realized.
