5.0 out of 5 stars Best Anime I've Ever Seen, Bar None July 11 2004
Simply put, this is among the best anime series you are likely to ever see - I really cannot conceive of any anime fan not enjoying this series. As long as you like far-future sci-fi anime, you really can't go wrong with Gundam Seed. Why? Here's just a few of the reasons this is such a stunning series:
- Characters: The characters are likable; all of the primary characters have believable, fairly deep personalities, and even many of the secondary characters have received a fair amount of attention. No cookie-cutter characters or two-dimensional personalities here.
- Story: Admittedly, it's a lot like previous Gundam series in a lot of respects, but it's been done much better this time around than any previous Gundam series. You could perhaps say "same general concept, utterly superior execution." In addition to being interesting, multi-layered and complex, the pacing is excellent, being fast and action-packed enough to keep anyone's interest, but never overloading you with pointless action scenes and thus making it seem shallow.
- Visuals: The artwork and animation are incredible by absolutely any standard, spiced up with plenty of nice CG effects, and terrific character and mecha designs. Gundam Seed redefines the term "eye candy."
- Action scenes: If you enjoy a good space battle, you'll be hard pressed to find better intense mecha action than in Gundam Seed. Fast-paced, flashy, glitzy, smooth - all of these adjectives do a good job describing the action in this series. Each type of mobile suit or other combat weapon has distinctive attributes that come into play making the fights even more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Seed Grew To Be A Beautiful Masterpiece. Aug. 24 2004
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed is not just any anime. People should not really compare it to other Gundam animes, but compare it to other titles. Gundam Seed is not about its battle scenes like Gundam Wing and Gundam G emphasizes, but it is about the drama, hardships, and tragedy brought by war.
The story is mainly about two friends parted from each other just to end up fighting each other in a seemly meaningless war, although most of wars are meaningless. War is such a terrible thing, that is if you were in the shoes of Kira Yamato, the main character in the series, but to us it is just another war story, this time in color.
My summary on this is, yes, Gundam Seed is worth keeping. You might find most of the episodes quite short, this is perhaps to keep the series long. If you like sci-fi animes, you will probably like this series. It has a lot to offer, mentioning twisty storylines and excellent battle sequence. But I must say you should not expect much of this, especially if you are a Gundam fan. I would recommend this to someone who prefers an alternative theme of animes, or someone who has not seen any Gundam series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Anime July 16 2004
By Lal
Anyone who says Gundam SEED sucks obviously either watched a bad fan dub or is just not a great anime fan. I have not watched many of the Gundam line- just G Gundam and Gundam Wing, which is one of the best animes out there- but I still know a good anime when I see one.
The characters develop a whole lot during the series. There's a ton of angst and emotion going on, but enough battle scenes to keep a fight fan happy.
I wholly recommend this to ANYONE of any age and any gender.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great start to a great series! July 6 2004
I have seen the entire series around the time it originally came out in Japan and it is one of the most enthralling anime adventures I have watched. At first I thought it was nothing more than the usual Gundam fare but as the episodes progressed the story became so deep, the characters were developed with a sense of reality, and the action made sense and not just combat for the sake of combat. After the last episode I was anxious for this series to be released on dvd. Finally I read that it began airing on Cartoon Network (which I've never seen so I can't comment on the English dubbing) as well as this upcoming dvd release. It's drama and action at it's best. I highly recommend this to any anime fan or as an awesome series to start getting into the genre.
This is the first series I recommend to others when discussing anime. Pick up this dvd and then stick with the series. In the end you won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gundam Seed = A awesome show Oct. 17 2004
By Revan
Hi I've watched both the english subtitled and the english versions of Gundam Seed and have seen all the episodes thus far up to episode 18 and I think that this Gundam series is by far the best one of probably all of the past Gundam shows. I think the animation in that show is awesome, I like the characters in the show as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily one of the best May 19 2005
By Fox
Anyone who says Gundam Wing is better than Gundam Seed, must either be a clueless anime fan or a 14 yr old girl (because that's what Gundam Wing was catering too).
Gundam Wing is 50 episodes of Gundam pilots crying...and Hero and Relina staring endlessly into the sky calling one another's name (literally)
Gundam Seed is a smart and expansive look at war, friendships and love...it's a brilliant anime definitely worth the purchase.

By A Customer
The most recent Gundam series, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, is also one of the weakest. The storyline through the first half of the series is a straight up copy of the first half of First Gundam. In the second half, the show doesn't become much more original, it simply starts drawing from other shows besides the original series.
Most of the characters are pretty bland and uninteresting through the first half of the series and only barely begin to develop a third dimension before the end of the series. They might have potential to become more interesting in the upcoming sequel, but almost all of them fall short in this show.
The animation, done completely digitally, is a 2D/3D mix. The 2D stuff is decent enough, but 3D animations of battleship maneuvers look totally out of place in the show. The soundtrack contains a few good pieces of background music, but most of it is fairly mediocre, and the best pieces don't show up until late into the series.
Character designs are a major sore spot here. Designer Hisashi Hirai has very little variety among his designs. He mixes and matches one or two different facial designs with three or four different hairstyles to create virtually all of his characters, in some cases creating two completely different people who look nearly exactly the same.
Mecha designer Kunio Okawara has been working on Gundam since its 1979 inception, and it really begins to show here -- and not in a good way. Forced to stretch his talents to create a Gundam for virtually every major character, he has produced some of the worst Gundam designs of his career. Most of the non-Gundam designs range from bland to pretty decent, though.
The show starts weak, but improves in the second half -- enough to keep with it to the end, but not enough to rescue the series.
