Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Series
Cosmic Era 71. A war is under way between genetically enhanced Coordinators and unmodified Naturals. The Natural-dominated Earth Alliance, struggling to catch up with the Coordinators' superior technology, has secretly developed its own Gundam mobile suits at a neutral space colony. Through a twist of fate, a young Coordinator named Kira Yamato becomes the pilot of the Alliance's prototype Strike Gundam, and finds himself forced to fight his own people in order to protect his friends.

There are a few points that lower the quality of this series. First, certain scenes seem fake and artificial, and the way certain characters just 'happen' to be at the right place and at the right time for the right thing to happen becomes quite irritating at one point. Also, I've never been able to understand how did soldiers belonging to different factions manage to communicate through radio. I mean, it would seem logical for them to use separate channels, right? That didn't make sense. Some characters were characterized in detail, while others were not characterized at all, like the three pilots of the Earth Alliance's new units. I truly think there was more to them than those "Annihilate! Obliterate! Kill!" sort of lines. Same goes for Orb's pilots (the three girls).
This Gundam series is set in a different timeline from the others.
I love Lacus.
Kira's cry is funny. It's hard to keep a straight face when he wails.
I hated Flay until the SEED remasters gave us some bonus scenes of her. I just despise her now.
This Gundam series felt like it was trying to do too much and over extended itself. It should have been one season and more condensed. Two seasons could have been told better and with more sharp character development. Side characters seem to just fill holes in the anime as opposed to being more thoroughly developed (given there is 2 seasons).
Would have rather had a 2nd season of Gundam Wing =b
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED is the first anime that I really got hooked into. I remember watching it as a child, and rewatching it even after years passed by. I'm not usually the type to like action, but I say that I really love this one. I love the plot, and the characters. It has some flaws, yes, but nonetheless it's a very good one.
My first Gundam series to watch. It left me very good impressions in terms of how they developed a story about how human nature works between Earth Forces and Zaft which is pretty applicable to real life and how our world works. Of course, in our world, I do not think we have someone as extreme as Rau but the things he say are pretty true. This series has left me wondering at times, is this what our world is heading towards with the clones and the strive to create the perfect person.
However, there are some scenes that were not necessary at least I did not think were needed such as the scene with Kira and Flay. According to Gundam Wiki, Kira was 16 when he was caught in this conflict while piloting the Stirke. Lacus was around the same age but it felt like Lacus changed from an innocent singer to one of the leaders in the Three Ships Alliance who's goal was to stop the war between the two sides. It just felt a little old.
Fair on the whole. Nice message about war and peace.
The artwork bugs me a little. Oh the Gundams are beautiful. But the people look weird... And there are so many repeated scenes!!! .V.
The story is great, but does not make sense at some points. And after watching the entire thing I still have no idea what exactly the seed is -v-
And I kinda hate Kira. Whiny brat that becomes a God ._.
Still, it's quite angsty and touching (maybe too angsty), and the mobile suits are really cool.
Character design is great, no doubt about that. I must say, that was one the things that got me watching the show. I may not know a lot about mechas, but Gundams really fascinate me. And the ones here in the anime are no exception (Justice! Freedom!) Aside from the Gundams, the designs for the other mobile suits, spacecrafts, and such are also very detailed. The soundtrack was superb too! This is definitely one of the animes with a great soundtrack. I may love a lot of things about this anime, but there are also a few points that I may not like that much. First thing on the list is the angst/emo-ness of some characters (Kira in particular...well, I'm probably solely pertaining to him because he cries TOO much and seems to place all problems and faults on himself). Another weak point would probably the romance plot for KiraxLacus. As much as I like the pairing, it upsets me a bit that their romance plot was a bit unclear (like when did Kira started falling in love with Lacus? Did he even fell in love w/ her in GSeed or was it just him being too kind & trying to learn to love her since she's showing her affections for him or was his heart all Fllay's in the whole duration of the anime?). But nevertheless, I really enjoyed the anime. Definitely one of my favorites!
I didn't care for how it ended and I couldn't relate to the main characters, I mainly liked the side characters such as Yzak, Dearka, and Nicol. Rau Le Kreuset was quite the convincing villain and as far as villains are concerned, I liked him as well, those were the only things that were good about it. Otherwise it was just a bad anime, aside from the blatant ripping of the first Gundam's premise, the only thing this series had going for it that made it so popular is the eye-candy character designs, I doubt it would have been popular without it. Other bad things this series had was the constant whining and emo characters, especially Kira, which made his character annoying, horribly written romances, plot armor, overuse of reptitive scenes, adult characters like Mwu and Murrue treating emo teens with kid gloves(Bright would have no qualms of handing out stiff punishment), over-powered MS's used by the leads, and so forth.
It's a good show, but the melodrama and teen angst makes me want to drown myself. I'm not kidding. I do, I really do like the anime- but every time I see Kira, I want to slap the tears of angst off his face. Many parts of it are predictable (best friends, now on opposites sides of a war- what a twist!), but it's an anime that can hold your interest, despite the overwhelming angst of it all. There's interesting characters and the plot is pretty alright (but once again, it can be predictable), and in my opinion, it'll never be the best Gundam series.
Uh, I like Kira badly when I saw this series, but he's just a teenager and he did a lot of stupid things before he grown mature. Lots of angst moment and characters. But what I always look forward is the mecha battle, I go all 'ah yeah!' whenever the main Gundams in action. XD
One of the first animes I've seen. I'm not a fan of mechas but this one is an exception. I like the story especially the coordinator and natural thing. I also love the characters and the soundtrack. The soundtrack is really amazing. That's why I was attracted to it. I remember the times when I was still very addicted to this. In my opinion, this is better than DESTINY.
This is the first of the Gundam series that i watched completely. I did watch very little of Gundam WIng. I love Gundam SEED and i watched this series a few times. That is how much i loved this. I loved the characters too <3 Athurn!!
Honestly, I didn't remember when I watched this series, but it's a long time ago. I just love at first sight, the mecha
design, the cool characters, heck, I can't get enough of them!
I also started making my OC for this series. Fufufu, how shameful of me. xD
But it's an awesome series and I love it!
There is no way for me to express my love of this series. I've rewatched it five times now and I'm not tired of it. (I try to spread out when I rewatch...doesn't always go too well though, haha) The artwork is one of my favorites and the plot and story is just awesome. The characters, their stories, it's all very interesting and well done. =D
practically, Gundam Seed is definitely an anime worth watching. it's one of those few long running animes i finished watching (even though it's just 50 episodes. LOL) because it's really great. once i started, it was practically difficult for me to pull out. the action and suspense in every episodes are definitely something. also, every character is unique, they are very easy to understand, just like the story itself. but maybe if you're not a fan of those battle/action animes, i'm guessing this is something you won't get suck into... :P
Actually, one of my faves of all the Gundam Saga (along with 0079 and Wing). Nice animation and character designs. A
great japanese VA Cast!
Gotta tell that I can't rate it with a 10, cuz there are lot of things I dont like in most of the Gundam Series, and this one includes *that*, too (WIM: The Main character always deserves a "Bright Slap", and the girl this guy likes is always a... for example). Sorry if Im being rude, but actually I've watched more than 7 series of Gundam, and is always the same with this details XD.
Oh... Im a Raww's fangirl, so please... understand me XD, I kinda hate Kira )=... This is a very VERY personal comment XD.
Fave Character: Raww Le Klueze/Rau Le Creuset. My fave character ever .-. XD!
