So it finally happened.

Last Saturday 20th March 2010 marks the debut screening of Gundam Unicorn – Episode One at Shaw theatre Bugis Junction. Despite the heavy downpour, load of Gundam Fans gathered and some even show up hours before the movie starts. Proudly sponsored by Sheng Tai Toys, the Singapore Distributor for Gundam Collectibles and Kits, this is the moment that all Gundam Fans had been waiting (for months) for.

I was there to cover the event under the invitation of Leon, Founder of http://openthetoy.blogspot.com/

A showcase of the latest Gundam Kits was also set up and it attracted lots of hobbyists to start snapping away.

Based on the Gundam Unicorn novels in Japan, Gundam Unicorn is the latest Gundam Japanese incarnated Anime for 2010. Released on 20th Feb 2010, Gundam Unicorn episode 1 was released in Japan and Singapore only 3 months later. A total 6 episodes, this 50 minutes movie was rated PG. The screening last Saturday was in Japanese language with English subtitles.

Not exactly a Gundam Fan myself, I didn’t even realized I was ‘glued" to my seat and eyes to the screen throughout the movie. Though the plot was somewhat predictable (did my research before the screening about everything Gundam), the animation was realistic and great, indeed a visual treat if you ask me.

Movie Rated *****

Like Gundam? Watch it!
