Gundam UC Episodes 1-3 Linearts

Photobucket
When I was leaving from the Rainbow Gala 9 doujin event last Saturday, I noticed that there were some Gundam UC (Unicorn) stuff on display in an open area of KITEC. The biggest feature of the displays were linearts used for the first 3 episodes of the OVA. Most were for the background and scenary, especially Industrial 7 space colony and Palau asteroid.

Just as I was about to leave, I saw the sign explaning that e-Max will hold a show that will air Gundam UC episodes 1-4 in one go on 22nd and 29th April, with the upcoming episode 5 to premier on 22nd May. A Unicorn Banshee phone strap is available for a special package that includes tickets for all 5 episodes, but is limited to 500 pieces only.

And finally, a huge rotating HARO was near the entrance to greet the visitors, and wave goodbye to those who were about to leave~


It's not very often we get to see such animation sketches and linearts in public! The details depicted in some places, such as the exterior of Industrial 7 colony and Full Frontal's room, were quite breathtaking as if they really exist. Gotta give the illustrators a big thumb up on this, and the organisers for displaying them to us for free!
