a space colony called Laplace was destroyed during a ceremony. the "Laplace's Box" was said to be capable of restoring the future or destroy the world. Princess Audrey aimed to pay a visit to Vist, who currently held the item in his possession. she believes that the Sleeves, a group of Neo Zeon group will initiate war with it. during her journey, she was rescued by Banagher. Banagher was a boy living in the space colonies. at the same time, a battle broke out between the Sleeves n Londo Bell. the colony was immediately evacuated. while searching for Audrey, Banagher met Vist, fatally wounded in the cockpit of the Unicorn Gundam, the Gundam that the Federation managed to complete after collecting data from Full Frontal (leader of Neo Zeon)'s Sinanju. before death, Vist set Unicorn to only recognize Banagher as its pilot.
unlike Gundam Seed (2002) or Gundam 00 (2008-2010), Gundam Unicorn had a very old-school feel to it, where its politics n wars was much more serious than the current trends of anime. Audrey was a character that most likely had a hidden identity n past that caused her to strive so hard to stop the war from being initiated. Unicorn had so much history in it, with characters that went missing like Char, the leader that looked so much like Full Frontal; or Amuro Ray, whom in someway resembled Banagher in this sequel. it went way back into the past, too complicated for amateur viewers like us. however it was those histories that made this OVA (Original Video Animation) so appealing to the "professional" otaku (おたく).
