What are the differences between Gundam Unicorn and Unicorn RE:0096? I have seen all the previous Universal Century Gundam anime, and now I want to watch the best version of Unicorn.

MAL ratings for the original are much higher than RE:0096, so it makes me wonder which one I should watch. Or is there really a difference? Thanks anyone who can help! It's much appreciated!

I haven't seen Unicorn RE:0096 yet (I've assumed that it's the sequel to Unicorn), but it must be canon to the original Gundam Unicorn (completed it 2 years ago). There are other OVAs and standalone Gundam stories, true, but I have yet to see any episodic Gundam anime. Unless RE:0096 is episodic, then I highly recommend that you watch the original Unicorn series if you haven't already.

I don't fully trust MAL's ratings and I like I said, I haven't seen RE:0096 yet. Though, I do agree that Unicorn is a fine Gundam OVA series (my favorite OVAs are The 08th MS Team and 0080: War in the Pocket; I have also yet to see 0083: Stardust Memory, but I love the theme song).

Unicorn RE:0096 is the same as Unicorn. The OVAs were just editted to a TV format and renamed Gundam Unicorn RE:0096. Though I never watched the original OVAs so I can't really say if anything was added/changed. You can definitely tell though that this series wasn't originally a TV series as it ends episodes abruptly sometimes.

The original is better, the tv series remake has pacing issues, and some of the added scenes don't look quite right.
