Unicorn was probably my first real introduction to Gundam so it will always have a place in my heart. My copy of Narrative special edition arrived today with a neat little book showing the UC timeline, characters, mechanics, etc. I haven't seen it before.As time marches forward, I find myself thinking increasingly more fond of Gundam Unicorn.
I feel like this is an aspect of human nature and fandom that is rarely acknowledged despite it seemingly being a near universal experience. Ever notice how most people's favorite Final Fantasy that they compare all the others to, just happens to be their first? It's the same with other expansive nerd stuff like Star Trek, Macross, or Gundam. My favorite Gundam for the longest time was 0083, because it was also my first. It's no longer my favorite, but that's only after a lot of time, reflection, and exposure to the majority of the multitude of Gundams out there. And I still love it way more than it deserves and will always have a special place in my heart despite the story and characters being thoroughly mediocre.Unicorn was probably my first real introduction to Gundam so it will always have a place in my heart.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I had to rewatch Unicorn numerous times before I knew what was actually going on beyond big robot is pretty. I recently had a friend check it out that I tried to give a primer.It always feels like an awful place to get fans to jump onto the franchise

That's fair, I admittedly don't hang around many nerd circles anymore, but it never seems to come up in the small sample sizes I expose myself to. I don't think it's quite axiom levels of always being right, but I do think people in general are very predisposed to let formative experiences define their worldview.If anything, I think this is a rationale too acknowledged and subscribed to
