I've watched Gundam SEED and thought that it didn't really do justice for the Gundam franchise. It didn't have the uber realism that the Gundam series (except for G Gundam) was known for; such as how it seems everyone had infinite ammo, batteries that empty depending on plot course rather than time, excessive reuse of clips and the fact that it felt more like a rehash of 0079's plotline.

Gundam SEED Destiny came and it was a travesty. The plot felt like a combination of its predecessor and of Zeta Gundam, the inconsistency of skills shown by the pilots, the unrealistic character development, a large and far fetched technology gap that rehashed Minovsky Physics in a bad way and more.

Neither series even felt remotely militaristic as too many situations were unrealistic and seemed too reliant to a plot, such as the inconsistent and unrealistic character deaths, constant reuse of clips and the way many characters exaggerated in one way or another.

It's funny when people ask,who is the hero for GSD?One would say Shinn,but another answer will immediately replace it,:Jesus Yamato.

Yep yep,because Mr Emo Shinn gets on everyone's nerves,Sunrise has to count of good old Jesus Yamato to save the show and become its hero again.And then we also have Mr Righteous Asuran.

One thing that i don't like is that the repetitive scene of the past.And the romance here is so-so.The friendship theme seem to have vanished from this sequel.Instead,we get a new theme,which is vengeance theme.Shinn,with his less-than-heroic voice,and stubborness doesn't have much common sense.I am sure all of you know what is his favourite phrase are........i honestly dont give a shit about this character.

As usual,Jesus Yamato is a forgiving man.Apparently,he didn't bear any grudges to a man who constantly wanted to kill him,and instead held out his hand and smile.

One thing that clearly distinguish Gundam Seed and gundam 00 is that Gundam Seed is like an epic battle,with romance and friendship and stuff while Gundam 00 is rather dull and boring,it is realistic,with heavy reference to the current world affairs.I dont mind such epic anime,but i do mind when it becomes too epic.

GS already suffered from lack of character development,and with the addition of new characters in GSD,it is even worse.I do like robots fighting here and there,but some character development wouldn't kill,you know.Let's just hope that the GS movie that will come SOON,will wrap things up and give a better ending for Cosmic Era.

But GSD has its plus point to you know,at least Jesus Yamato's crying voice which by the way sounds like choking on a fish wasn't heard.

GSD in my opinion,would be better if Shinn is killed off at episode 1.If you like GS,stay out of this.

im quite a GS / GSD fan, but really there are some things that i couldnt stand...

like everyone has been saying, the excessive use of flashbacks -.- it's like even if u missed out a few eps, you can still get 95% of wat's going on, but for ppl who watch every single ep from GS to GSD, it gets annoying...and useless...

and the twists in the plot...i thought some was pretty funny and lame...

athrun returning to ZAFT in ep 16, he didnt play a really big role in ZAFT, in my opinion, except for turning back into his "full-of-authority" self, then later losing and returning back to archangel, is there really a deep meaning in this or is it just to make the story more complicated? adding on to more relations here and there....
Kira "dying" and returning with an even more powerful gundam (again), except that the name is different...seriously, they dont get tired of the same thing? and i thought kira was still being a little emo....

Portrayal of characters. Comparison of Mia campbell and lacus clyne...what do u get? Devil and Angel....the portrayal is so perfect that it almost seemed unrealistic, mia acted as the really selfish girl who imposted on Lacus....adding onto the angelic essence of lacus clyne...

really...i thought the overall wasnt that bad except for some instances, but they should stop the stereotypical portrayal of characters, its kinda "out-dated"...no longer as fascinating as it use to be...

I watched 1 episode of the Gundam Seed/Destiny and thought it was the dumbest gundam series, stopped watching it after the 1st 4 minutes, didnt do do well for the gundam franshise, and the character kira is a emo guy who says war is bad and fighting is bad but he is killing people with a gundam

i have seen both GS and GSD. I liked them but to me the Strike Freedom was to overpowering. there was only one or two pilots skilled enough to take it one and they lost. The new one, Gundam 00 is a bit more realistic because in the episode 15 it showed that the Gundams are not all powerful and they can be brought to its knees.

I just prefer gundam seed to gsd. Gsd pales in comparison with gundam seed. Firstly, the main character Shinn is just annoying and I fast forwarded gsd episodes so I didn't really watch the whole series whereas for gundam seed, I watched for about 4times. Secondly, the front few episodes in gsd has so little parts on the old cast like Kira, and I just don't like the new cast. But for the sake of Kira and Athrun, I shall watch gsd if I have the time.

The movie is confirmed, though there's no story or release date yet (at least to my knowledge). Though I just hope it redeems the Cosmic Era.

Shinn is definitely one of the most annoying and useless character in GSD who is easily manipulated by the chairman and Rey. He only knows how to blame the Athas for the loss of his family when all he did while they were fighting with their lives is to play in the park n sleep. I seriously think that he has no right whatsoever to be rude to Cagalli and the others.

I'm always supportive of the CagalliXAthrun and LacusXKira relationships, that's why, in GS, i hate Flay to the core and in GSD, all those loose women who threw themselves shamelessly at Athrun, imo, deserve to die too...may seem a little extreme, but i really do hate them.

GSD'S STRIKE FREEDOM & INFINITE JUSTICE are the most handsome machines that i had ever seen in the series and in others....not to mention their awesome powers n speed
