Newest Gundam Series "Mobile Suit Gundam UC" First 7 Minutes to Be Shown for Free

Tokyo, Japan, March 2, 2010 - Bandai Channel Co., Ltd. has announced that the newest animation work "Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn)", based on Japan’s wildly successful "Mobile Suit Gundam" franchise, is now available for streaming video preview on a limited-time basis worldwide for free (http://extr.b-ch.com/guc/). "Gundam UC" is currently planned to be released March 12, 2010 on Blu-ray disc worldwide simultaneously in the 7 territorial areas of Japan, US, Canada, UK, France, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. We would like to invite you to witness for yourself the high video and audio quality standards for "Gundam UC" in this preview of the animation.

"Gundam UC" is the latest work of the popular "Gundam" series, and uses the "Universal Century" concept from the first "Mobile Suit Gundam" series as a foundation from which to build a 6 episode Original Video Animation (OVA) storyline arc. In Japan, "Gundam UC" became available in the PlayStation® Store on February 20, 2010. From the highly wonderful, positive comments from fans who have already watched the show at the PlayStation® Store, "Gundam UC" is now greatly expected to become a smash hit, not only in Japan, but around the world as well. "Gundam" celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2009, and in commemoration an 18 meter tall Gundam statue (approx. 59 feet) was erected. We are proud that 4.15 million people visited, and it became the number one event of the summer.
