    One of the most iconic gundam franchises
    Everyone should watch this anime. Sure it's slow in the beginning and has it's downsides, but overall anyone would be missing out on one of the best, if not the best anime experience. Just a little patience for the first couple of episodes really pays off.

    You know that haters just have to hate
    You know that haters just have to hate. While many people love Mobile Suit Gundam Seed you will sometimes find detractors that vehemently hate the series for its use of standard Gundam tropes. Yes MSG Seed does have a strong correlation with the original MSG and it does build on what most fans love in a Gundam series slick mechs, cool beam effects, ridiculous drama. So while I'll agree that this ...

    Dated, but still a ton of fun!
    Although the story drags in parts and the stock footage becomes a little too blatant in some episodes, I still had a good time with this show. To be blunt, the story is a Re-imagining of the classic Mobile Suit Gundam, with a backdrop of early 21st century ideas of the future. A particularly interesting aspect of the show is it's discussion of genetics and genetic modification (the latter of which ...

    This is a Great Show!
    A great show with realistic characters and political scenarios. It also really keeps you at the edge of your seat and really conflicts you on who to really "root" for up until the end. This show keeps you on the edge of your seat truly one of my favorite shows of all time. This is also one of the few shows where the dub is just as good as the sub! I hope they upload the remastered dub.

    This anime is in my top 5
    I will always love this anime, not only for nostalgic reasons but also because it's one of those stories where no matter how many times I watch it, it still makes me feel. The characters are interesting, the action is intense, the drama keeps you feeling.

    Also, don't miss the second season Gundam Seed Destiny - especially if you love Athrun (like me lol)

    "My first gundam anime"
    This is a classic that anyone can ease into the gundam series with I highly recommend to give it a fair shake it will blow you away. This got me into the gundam I never regretted it as I keep watching this gem. With two solid seasons chalked packed with great episodes its a must watch for any mecha fan overall.

  • I understand why this series is considered a low point in Gundam
    It's very rare that I'm left disappointed in a Gundam series. Usually I associate Gundam with a certain level of sophistication that despite the philosophical rhetoric that each series delivers, they seemed to have strong characters and a strong narrative that supports it.

    That is not the case with Gundam Seed. I've never seem so many illogical and nonsensical action performed in one series ...

    One of the best in the series.
    This show is what Zeta Gundam would have been if they had bothered to give any background for what was going on, or do any character work for...well, anyone. It's what Gundam Wing would have been if they had hired writers or done any world building, and it's what the original Gundam could have been if any of the characters had been interesting or likeable.
    Yeah, it has a problem with same face. ...

  • One of my favourites
    Oh my god I as soooo happy to see this on here!
    It's definitely an oldie, but if you're even a little bit interested I would highly recommend watching. This was one of the first series I got into as a kid and it still hits me in all the right feels as an adult. i would almost say it's a must watch!
