I enjoy most of Gundam. Most of it. But I despise Seed and Seed Destiny. Everybody is allowed to enjoy what they will, of course, but I will never warm to the Cosmic Era. Especially considering that it followed Turn A Gundam, which is about one thousand times better, IMO (and was supposed to be the end of the franchise).


Why does everyone hate Seed/Destiny?

I've rambled about it in different topics here and there. I probably shouldn't do that here, though, or I'll go on for a while.

I don't know about everybody else, but it kinda pales in comparison to some of the other Gundam series (00, 08th MS Strike Team, and Wing come to mind right off the bat), I feel that Destiny is much worse than seed. For many of the characters it seemed like they just threw out the their old personalities for the new series.

When I first watched Seed I had not seen the other series I mentioned. And, I enjoyed it. After watching these other series, I see how Seed just really isn't as good as many other Gundam series.

One upcoming mecha series that I have high hopes for is Macross Delta. It's just to bad that I will most likely have to turn to the darkside to watch it here in the USA.

There are MANY reasons. I do not personally hate the series, which is why I even suggest it to some people. It's not one of my favorites, but it gave me one of my favorite characters and 3 of my favorite Gundam Suits.

The main thing is almost everything pales in comparison to the main UC timeline shows.

One of my top 3 Gundam series is 08th MS team, but many people don't like it due to slow pacing, shortness of the series and the fact it has little to do with any of the space-faring in most other Gundam series.

Anyways, back on topic. I like almost any big bashin' bot series. I want more Mazinger personally.

I liked Seed quite a bit, and Japan's audience seems to agree with me on that.

Destiny was something of a disappointment. It had a good start, but then seemed to lose direction at some point. I'm still glad it was released, but I have the feeling it could have been much more than it was. Surprisingly, it actually outsold Seed, at least for the original release. (I don't have numbers handy for the HD re-mastered versions).

Knights of Sidonia just end(for now) but even with the huge queue of other shows I have, I gone back to watch Valvrave the Liberator to get my "fix" in.

I don't see why people didn't like A.Z. ending. It left a little opening if they got the go ahead to do another series but put a cap on all the on going storylines that was in the show.

I actually like "Cross Ange" even had its plots error but manage to end the show well. A.Z. wasn't fond of it but i really like the music from that show. I.S. season 1 was good, S2 meh, wonder if they get season 3 going but that will never happen. Waiting on the next season of Gargantia. Gotta start watching Evangelion and Code Geass since I haven't watch them yet



Enjoyed "Cross Ange", even with that disturbing ending of the first episode (but then again it was there to show you that life as a Norma is not going to be pleasant). By the way, have you seen "Valvrave the Liberator"?
