Designed by renowned mechanical designer Hajime Katoki, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam statue was erected in 2017 at DiverCity Tokyo Plaza’s Festival Plaza in Odaiba, Tokyo based on the titular mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn anime series.
Beginning in 2010, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn(or Mobile Suit Gundam UC) adapted the bestselling novel of the same name into a seven-part OVA(original video animation) series directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi and scripted by Yasuyuki Muto. The novel was published by Kadokawa Shoten from 2007 to 2009, penned by Harutoshi Fukui with character designs by celebrated animator Yoshikazu Yasuhiko and mechanical designs by Hajime Katoki. For the anime, Katoki returned for mechanical designs, joined by Junya Ishigaki, Nobuhiko Genba and Mika Akitaka, with Kumiko Takahashi on animation character designs. Famed composer Hiroyuki Sawano was in charge of scoring the series.
