Trivia

In November 2004, Takanori Nishikawa (as T.M. Revolution) made Gundam singles history when his single, "Ignited", hit the #1 spot in Japanese Oricon's daily top 20 singles; a first for the franchise. Up until then, the highest ranking Gundam song was T.M. Revolution's own "Invoke", which had made it to #2. Initial sales data has "ignited" as having sold 108,000 copies. "Ignited" is the First Opening Theme song for the serie, Kidô senshi Gundam Seed Destiny (2004) while "Invoke" was the First Opening Theme song for Gundam SEED Destiny's prequel, Kidô senshi Gundam Seed (2002).

Quotes

Gilbert Dullindal: [to Athrun] I didn't want to put you in the ordinary chain of command... I'm sure you don't want that either. Just think of it as a measure for convenience. After all, its name, FAITH, suggests the pledging of loyalty. After all, you just have to pledge loyalty to your own beliefs and truths.
Athrun Zala: Chairman...
Gilbert Dullindal: You are someone who abides by what you believe regardless of current trends, and someone who is capable of fighting when it is necessary, aren't you?

Good start...
18 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Gundam SEED Destiny, the direct sequel to Gundam SEED, got off to a great start. We were thrown into battle that raged on and off for 4 to 5 episodes non-stop, and our hopes were high. There were new characters that had stories to be told, and a new plot to be delivered. But, this all stopped before the series even hit the 20th episode. Instead of the new characters being in the spotlight, Lacus and the crew came in and took it back. Athrun was left in the cold, and it became the Jesus Yamato show. Instead of seeing intense battles, we get to see Freedom strike the same pose over and over again as hundreds of grunt units explode.

Gundam SEED retained elements from the older, more war oriented Gundam series, which made it easily watchable and quite entertaining if you could get by the re-use of the same frames. But SEED Destiny became a "super robot" show in which the main characters suits could easily take out an entire fleet without getting a scratch. The new suits, while flashy, are just blatant copies of UC suits. Pumping up a Zaku and giving it a huge backpack doesn't mean you've created a new suit.

Destiny had the potential to be as good as SEED, but it ended up destroying itself by becoming a super robot show filled with Gundams.

I give it 3 out of 10 stars, because it did have a good start.
