Gundam Unicorn Animation Confirmed

Confirmed, reaffirmed, and all over again. ^^

From this month's Gundam Ace: Gundam Unicorn Animation coming in Winter 2009.

My Japanese is nil, and I can't translate the text from an image file using web tool. So I'm not sure what format it's coming out. Sorry about that ^^;

The director is Kazuhiro Furuhashi (古橋一浩 - never involved in any Gundam anime production in the past). The script will be from Yasuyuki Muto (むとうやすゆき - Afro Samurai the Movie, Sengoku Basara etc), character design by Kumiko Takahashi (高橋久美子 - Cardcaptor Sakura etc) based on Yoshikazu Yasuhiko (安彦良和)'s design from the novel.

Kunio Okawara-sensei is involved in the production team as well. ^^ Also involved in the mecha design are:
- Hajime Katoki (of course ^^),
- Yoshinori Sayama (佐山善則 - Gundam Wing, Gundam X, Char's Counterattack, Patlabor the Movie 1, 2, and 3, Macross Frontier etc.),
- Junya Ishigaki (石垣純哉 - Gundam Wing, Gundam X, Victory Gundam, Macross Frontier etc.),
- Nobuhiko Genba (玄馬宣彦 - Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie).

Also involved is Shinya Ogura (小倉信也 - graphic designer for Gundam EVOLVE).
