I had donned my Unicorn Gundam T-shirt with pride to AFA 2011 for the screening of the long awaited 4th episode of Gundam Unicorn 'At The Bottom of The Gravity Well'. We had an usually huge crowd today, all in high spirit and with much anticipation. Unlike the previous screenings held at cinema, today's screening happened inside a convention hall. It's a brand new experience like watching a live concert with the company of friends. Today, fans get to see the famous White Base captain Bright Noa voiced by Ken Narita again in anime. This episode by far has the most grunt units' appearances from both Zeon and Federation. Some MSV also managed to get their few seconds of limelight finally on anime.
Not much of Laplace box secret been uncovered in this episode, nevertheless fans were well entertained by the superb action scenes, comic reliefs and surprises. The answer to those who expect Bright to slap Banagher is 'No', maybe not in this episode. I totally loved the response from the crowd when they saw the portrait of Amuro Ray inside Bright's office, priceless. In this episode, the Neo Zeon had put up an impressive assault at the Gundam-historic Torrington base with their outdated MS. The element of surprise is the main factor that they gained upper hand at first. There was a particular federation MS (RX-106S Byalant), which displayed high tenacity even under the surprise attack, which suggested that the pilot might be an ace of the Federation. My wild guess would be Kou Uraki. At the end of the episode, we were surprised by the appearance of a black Unicorn Gundam!
Those who didn't have enough of Gundam Unicorn could also view the Gundam Unicorn model kit exhibition inside AFA 2011 convention hall. On display were the yet to released Zee Zulu & the awesome MG Unicorn Gundam Full Psycho Frame. There were also exclusive Gundam Unicorn Gunpla on display.
