    Got all three, can't wait to see the rest (3?). So cool to see old-schoolesque designs in very shiny BD fashion.

      Still waiting for my third volume, but I really like it so far. As mentioned, it is so cool seeing old-fashioned drawings in near perfect HD on Blu-ray. I don't know at which resolution it's being animated, but it looks ace. I find the story to be very complicated, but that's just all the more reason to watch those expensive episodes more than once

        It's refreshing to see mecha that actually move like they have mass and intertia, for that matter; they're not bouncing around like there's someone with a DualShock just offscreen like some of the recent TV efforts.

        It's also remarkably accessible. My UC Gundam experience is mostly the previous numerical OVAs, but Unicorn hasn't been nearly as difficult to follow as I'd feared going into it.

          That's one of the biggest reasons I love the UC stories. No matter how ridiculous the technology gets, real world physics still plays a role in battles. I also like how the concept of the mecha being powered by nuclear reactors acts as a deterrent for the characters to just casually mow down the enemy. You can't really protect a space colony when a small nuclear blast goes off every time you score a direct hit on an enemy unit.

            I should really pick this up. The only reason I haven't is because I was waiting for more of the series to get released... but with three volumes out, I suppose this is a safe bet now. Which other UC Gundam series is this most like?

              I'd say Zeta, but Banagher isn't punching everyone in the face like Kamille did. Unicorn is rather unique in that it is heavily influenced by Tomino's original concepts, but isn't actually written or directed by him. The previous UC stories that were done by different writers/directors avoided the newtype aspect of the timeline. Unicorn is kind of unprecedented in this regard.

                There's also less "smacktion" in Unicorn. Don't remember seeing Banagher being on the receiving end of 'corrections' like Kamille was.

                  The JP Vol.4 release has a date now. Not quite fall 2011 I guess.

                    Kinda crazy that the series is already up to vol. 4. And I still have yet to nab vol. 1, because I'm a bad person.

                        I can't remember... what does the Bandai Store sell them for when they're first listed? I doubt it's the MSRP, but I'm not sure if it was the 45 bucks the old volumes are listed at now, and I honestly can't remember what I've spent.

                          Going off Vol.3's MSRP ($59.98), the pre-order price was $39.98. It should be the same for Vol.4 (whenever they chose to list it).

                            Nice. I thought the other prices seemed a little high. Not that it isn't still high. I'll definitely be pre-ordering it whenever they list it, though.
