Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn) Vol. 3 : The Ghost of Laplace Blu-ray will be released April 7, 2011. It will feature Japanese audio with English subtitles as well as an English language version, in addition to other features and bonuses.
The story continues from the last volume. In order to recapture Banagher and the Unicorn Gundam, the Federation Forces launch an assault on Palau, the stronghold of the Sleeves. Thanks to an ECOAS sabotage operation and the firepower of the Nahel Argama’s hyper megaparticle cannon, they succeed in sealing off Palau’s military port, and Banagher takes advantage of the confusion to escape with the Unicorn Gundam. During his escape he encounters Mineva, who is riding with Riddhe in the mobile suit Delta Plus. Accepting her desire to go to Earth and seek a resolution to the conflict, Banagher entrusts her fate to Riddhe’s hands.
Banagher hurries back to the Nahel Argama, but Marida and her Kshatriya are standing in his way. During his fierce battle with the Cyber-Newtype Marida, the Unicorn Gundam’s NT-D system activates, finally releasing its hidden power.
