Gundam Unicorn: Then and Now

by 10:54
A small comparison chart of characters from the Universal Century timeline anime "Gundam Unicorn"

The original designs (left) are from the novel, followed by the adaptation designs (right).

The drawings give off a feeling of vintage and retro-ness that is rarely found in today's character designs. Maybe its just me, but I've come to appreciate how they retained that UC era feel ^^

I dont really follow Gundam UC so I dont know sorry but the last girl design was kind of similiar to today design I think? Not to mention looks like they change a lot?
and also the first girl? I kinda like the Then design than Now, new one looks like she is having a constipation =x=

@Anonymous Quite true. Perhaps its the shadow play on the character's side that gives them at darker/retro look, since today's characters look so round with their eyes taking up 40-50% of the facial area lol. Tho some characters have undergone a complete change....

And some girls are supposed to stay grumpy throughout the series :3

But I can see where you're going. Try out the OVAs when you've the time, since we're only halfway of the releases.

The novel design is very nice imo but the redesign isn't bad either, they did a good transition on them, the co-captain woman with her appearance changed somehow still retains the same feel on the other hand the last girl... a completely different person lol
