All things considered, including the most annoying character (who is actually worse than Kira) dying 50 episodes too late, 3 completely unnecessary recaps, Kira surviving a goddamn Mobile Suit explosion and being generally the most insufferable protagonist I've seen as of yet (haven't seen Destiny...as a completionist, I'm going to watch it, but I know I won't enjoy it).

STOP FIGHTING! BEAMSPAAAAAAAAM!

Man, if Kira actually died in the series, I feel like it could have been so much better.

The explosion is mostly explained in sidestories like Astray, similar to 00 has CB explained via 00F, 00I and 00P.

And Lacus never died in SEED. Just saying.

I don’t even like saying “for the 1980’s the animation was great” since I personally think almost ALL of the anime in the 80’s looked better than the stuff today.


Here, let me clear up those rose-tinted glasses for you.

While Zeta Gundam isn't my favorite in the series (it has a lot of small faults, as somebody else pointed out. Biggest problem to me being Kamille and how annoying he can be at the start of the show. Not a big fan of the mech designs either, but they aren't bad, just not my style), I do love it, and would like to see it get more love. I find it sad to see so many poeople, not just here, overlook classics such as this just because its old. While I know people have different tolerances for those kind of things, but to me, as show as good as this shouldn't be pass over just because of its looks or whatever (though admittedly I don't see the problem in this case, it's very well animated, IIRC). I highly recommend this to science fiction fans, even ones who aren't that into mecha. I think I might give it another watch soon, despite Crunchyroll lacking the awesome dub.

That's stupid, though. Celestial Being is already explained in the show for the most part, the side stories are just supplements to give it more depth...which, funnily enough, is something SEED lacked.

Also how is Lacus worse than Flay? I know Lacus is hairpull-tier "I'm always right" stupidity, but Flay is annoying as hell and should have died before she was even introduced.

I also love the Zeta Gundam story! Kamille Bidan at first bugged me then he became one of my favorite Gundam characters and is always the first Gundam Pilot I play if he is in the games. I know many Gundam purists may not like the new ending in the newer adapted movies but I loved the new ending! yet I know I am in the small portion of people that like change to anything anime. I also think the Zeta Gundam is my favorite Universal Century Gundam by far. I love how Kamille uses the wave mode to tackle things. Almost always my finishing move in the Dynasty Warriors Gundam series!

I loved Nobuo Tobita's performance as Kamille. He has such a beautiful gentle voice.

And now he's Zetsu in Naruto Shippuuden!!

Not...really. How did they survive the timeskip after they were completely decimated and how they got all the tech is never really explained.

As for Lacus being more annoying then Fllay, you answered your own question. Lacus is a Mary Sue, always in the right and gets away with doing anything without repressions. Fllay, on the other hand, is twisted, realistic and possibly the most interesting character (that didn't get the development she deserved) in the original SEED because it's quite obvious she has her flaws.

I loved Zeta. Can't say the same for Double Zeta--no thanks to Judau! Kamille, Char, and Amuro are a million times better than that loser.

Zeta is the best of the Gundam TV series. Only some of the UC OVA like War in the Pocket can match it's quality.

The original Gundam took way too long to establish a story, a space ship that spent 20+ episodes travailing across one continent, good ending though.

Zeta annoyed the hell out of me and I spent every episode wishing for Kamille to die a horrible death.

Wing was Very good. I was surprised how they changed the story to make the Gundams the aggressors with out much explanation at first.

Only this week finished 00 second season, ( been on a mission to get through the Gundam series on crunchyroll, only to find 00 second season missing). Not sure if 00 or Wing is my favourite, I like both I suppose for different reasons. 00 seemed more thought provoking for a mecha series. Probably 00 as it makes you even question everyday life world affairs, the actions we take and the information given to us by our government's. Is there a true perspective out there and can it be achieved.

The picture that is shown on the home page is from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: A New Translation. Zeta Gundam use to be my favorite UC series until Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn came out. Also it seems crunchyroll is losing the rights to stream all the Gundam series they they have at the end of the year.
