Gundam.info, the official Gundam site, has announced that the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn OVA will be aired as a re-edited TV series under the name Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096. The series will be broadcast at 7am on Japan’s TV Asahi network and its affiliates.
The series will feature new opening and closing themes and episode previews by Shuichi Ikeda in character as Full Frontal. I’ll be interested to see if some new animation is thrown in and structure reworked here and there too, as the Unicorn OVAs work wonderfully as long-form pieces but simply cut into half hour chunks they would make for some poorly paced TV episodes along the way.
Either way, I’ll be watching – anything to see the Unicorn, Banshee and Sinanju in action again.
