For those of you who are fans of Mobile Suit Gundam, you'll want to check out this first trailer for a new anime film called Mobile Gundam Suit Narrative, which is set in the Universal Century timeline.
The series is set in U.C. 0097 of the Universal Century, after the events of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. The trailer offers some cool footage, but nothing about the story. However, you can read the synopsis that was released here:
U.C. 0097. The year the Laplace’s Box was opened. Despite the revelation of the original charter for the Universal Century, which acknowledges the existence of Newtypes and their rights, the world remains largely unchanged.
After the destruction of the Neo Zeon remnant force known as the Sleeves, the event that has come to be known as the “Laplace Incident” seems to have drawn to a close. In the final battle, two Full Psycho Frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human imagination. The menace of the White Unicorn and the Black Lion were sealed away from public consciousness, and were consigned to be forgotten by history.
But now sightings of the RX-0 Unicorn 03, long thought lost two years ago, are being reported. Its name is Phenex, an immortal golden bird.
The film is being directed by Shunichi Yoshizawa (Gundam Thunderbolt) from a script written by Harutoshi Fukui (Gundam Unicorn). Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
