Gundam Seed/Destiny - Thoughts?
#1
I actually really disliked Seed for a pretty long time after having got about a third or half way into it, and then abandoning it.

Years pass...

A friend I was talking to recommended I finish it, and so I did. I'm actually glad I did so. I'll come right out and say this isn't one of my top animes, but it's certainly not on my shit-list anymore.

Now that I've finished Seed, I've started into Destiny, I'm actually enjoying this much more than Seed thus far (just finished episode 17).

Of course I couldn't appreciate Destiny the way I am now if I had not finished Seed first; but I just like Shinn's character much more than Kira and Athrun. The way he's still dragging his emotional baggage around, having to come to terms and take responsibility for his actions, I can appreciate his character much more than the previous protagonists.

Of course my stance my change, as I'm only about a third of the way into Destiny, but if it keeps going at this pace, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

On a closing note, how do you guys feel about Seed/Destiny as a whole? Are there any other animes you had to struggle to finish, but are glad you did?

You're just about at the point where Destiny falls apart so no you probably won't enjoy it much better.

Shinn isn't a bad character.

Destiny does gets really bad like next episode, soon you will find that Seed is better.

Never did managed to finish watching Votoms.
I think I stopped at episode between 10-20 something.

About Destiny, I never did watch it too. Finished SEED, though. Not bad.

Funny you say that, it was the same for me. I saw bits and pieces of it a while back, I think while it was airing on Adult Swim. It wasn't really my bag at the time.

Fast forward~

I see it appear on Netflix, where I finally finished it. Pretty good series.

Edit: I must give props to SEED Destiny OP 1. Love it.

Oh yeah, I like SEED's 1st ending "Anna ni issho datta no ni".

SEED/Destiny starts off pretty good but between a LOT of clip shows and the fact that, IMO, characterization goes really hard into flanderization and derailment, it really tainted my view of the SEED universe in a bad way for years afterwards.

yeah, the OST is great. just a quick warning though, the 4th OP of seed destiny can be a bit jarring. it's a good song but after all those high energy OPs it felt out of place.

It was a real WTF moment, so I guess in a way it's a metaphor for how the entire series was written.

Pretty much what others said. SEED is decent; it's not the greatest Gundam show out there but it's not bad. Destiny starts out with a lot of promise, but gets worse and worse as the show goes on and collapses by the end. It's the worst Gundam series I've seen.

Because I have been rereading it recently, I am going to say that the best part of the Cosmic Era, for me, is the Gundam Seed Astray manga. I loathe the anime, especially Destiny, but Lowe and company show a different perspective on it that feels a lot more like a traditional Gundam series. ... Unfortunately, the manga is out of print, these days, but at least I held on to my books from back in the day.
