One of the best Gundam series ever
23 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

SEED is basically Bandai's move to relaunch Gundam into the new century. It takes the best parts out of every Gundam series there's ever been; Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam, 0083, 0080, Zeta etc...and puts it into a stew. You may hear from some super hard-core Gundam fans hate SEED because it is a re-telling of the One Year War because of so much parallel stuff, however, that is barely the case. Prior to SEED's release it was stated that it would be a re-telling of the One Year War but with one can tell it has lots of What if?....Something similar to X Gundam's plot which too was a What if? The early episodes parallels with the First Series but eventually uses it to kick-off into quite an original exciting story. A war between genetically engineered people and naturals(us), the story of how a young boy gets caught into a war against and with his friends and meeting strangers who know more about him than he knows himself which unleashes an even more exciting story full of mystery and suspense. Very bloody as the series shows the sorrow and horrors of war; genocide, massacres, bloody battles, you name it. The series will be brought into America about one year from now. It will finish in Japan on the 26th of September so if you can, get DVD's or borrow from your friends to watch all 50 episodes of one of the best series ever.
