5.0 out of 5 stars Best Anime I've Ever Seen, Bar None July 11 2004
Format:DVD
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 A great start to a great series! July 6 2004
Format:DVD
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 The Seed Grew To Be A Beautiful Masterpiece. Aug. 24 2004
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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 The best gundam series of all time July 6 2004
Format:DVD
I have seen most of the Gundam series form the original up to SEED. As with all Gundam series, the story starts out as average at best but it quickly turns into what I have heard "one of the best anime series of all time". As with most non-Universal Century Gundam series, the primary focus of SEED is bringing peace to the universe. However, in this series several of the growing concerns that we have now are brought to the forefront. With the primary conflicts for the series being the war between naturals and coordinators (genetically engineered humans), as well as the use of weapons of mass destruction, SEED is indeed the Gundam series for the new millennium.
Gundam SEED is extremely well animated with a visual style slightly different from any other Gundam series that I have ever seen. For many of the space and ship sequences computer generated animation is used instead of typical drawn animation. This style is new and takes a few episodes to get used to. I get the feeling that this was an experimental idea that is still being worked out. I would expect that CG animation will be used more often in Gundam series and indeed in Gundam SEED 2 which should be released in Japan later on this year.

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). Read more
