In an announcement made earlier today, Toonami revealed the next title that will be joining its lineup, once Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans finishes its run, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, which should keep fans of the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise happy.
Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn) takes place three years after the last conflict between between Neo Zeon and the Earth Federation. War once again finds its way to the Mobile Suit Gundam universe, as Cardeas Vest, the head of a powerful organization agrees to hand over the secret of the group’s prosperity, to the Neo Zeon. Enter Banagher Links, a student who rescues a mysterious girl named Audrey Burne, as Banagher’s home colony is devastated by the attacks of an enemy mobile suit. Banagher finds himself fighting on the front lines of this new conflict, when fate brings him to the Unicorn Gundam.
Beginning on Jan. 7, 2017, Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn) will be joining the Cartoon Network’s Saturday night Toonami anime block, at 1AM. Through a partnership with Sunrise Inc., many series in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise are currently distributed in North America by Right Stuf, Inc. This includes Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn).
