Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The latest installment in this popular franchise, Gundam Seed (2002) resembles a reworking of Yoshiyuki Tomino's original Mobile Suit Gundam (1979). Kira Yamoto accidentally becomes a mecha pilot when he stumbles onto the top secret GAT-X105 Strike Gundam during an attack on his home satellite-colony, Heliopolis. The Earth Alliance and ZAFT, the fighting arm of the genetically enhanced humans known as Coordinators, are at war. Heliopolis is caught between them. Kira is a Coordinator, which explains his ability to pilot the Strike and reprogram its OS with no training. All the elements of a solid Gundam story are in place, including a reluctant hero, a masked enemy general, and an old friend who tests Kira's loyalty. Mitsuo Kukada uses CG to choreograph some very snazzy mecha battles, in space and on the surface of Heliopolis. Released in Japan 25 years after the initial series, Seed introduces a new generation of viewers to the Gundam universe. However, the series is set in the Cosmic Era, rather than the previously explored "Gunda Saga" timeframe or the "Alternate Universe." (Rated 13 and older: violence, minor profanity) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars A Damn Fine series May 29, 2005
Format:DVD
Having been a Gundam fan for a long time, and having heard good things about this series, I decided "What the heck?" and splurged on this stupendous complement to the genre. Any Gundam fan, whether he or she be a Universal Century hardcore fan or adore the Alternate Universe types, should check this out. Great music, deep characters, deep and complex plot, excellent fight scenes, all culminate to bring you one hell of an anime.

Like most Gundam series, the story is about war, and about Earth vs. Space. Or rather, in this case, Naturals vs. Coordinators. Since the basic storyline has been explained, I won't go into too many details on it, but needless to say it takes some interesting turns towards the end.

What first struck me about this series was the music. Whether it was the catchy J-pop opening and closings (like Invoke, Believe, Realize, Moment, and the first ending) and some excellent and beautiful background music (like Akatsuki no Kuruma). Unfortunately, the CD that came with this box left out some of the better ones. This is forgiveable, since you can always find them if you know where to look. The music is just so appropriate and moving, and makes the story work.

This series is by far the best when it comes to presenting reasons NOT to fight a war. The tragedies of when characters die, the ever-escalating conflict brought on by terrorist organizations such as Blue Cosmos, the need to fight for what you want to protect, all culminate to make the story far more moving and deep than any of the other Gundam series. Both sides have a reason to fight, yet both realize that the end result might mean the elimination of each other (see the last DVD).

I've heard many complaints about the art style and character design, but I find it enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gundam for the twenty first century.... July 4, 2004
Format:DVD
The Gundam franchise is something of a rarity. It's longlevity (25 years) ranks it with the other great science fiction and fantasy franchises of the world such as Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who. In fact, with it's legions of geeky otaku fans, tons of scale models, technical guides, and other tie-ins and merchandise, Gundam is aptly referred to as "Japan's answer to Star Trek".
Gundam Seed began airing in Japan in the fall of 2003, the latest entry in a franchise with 15 tv series and movies and it was billed as a Gundam series for the new century. Following a plot whose first half is similar in many ways to the original 1979 TV series, Seed did exactly as it set out to do, remake the Gundam mythos for the 21st century.
Old issues and conflicts were now discussed with a distinctly modern flavor. This is seen most prominently in one of the two main themes of the series. Mirroring the rapid advances in biotechnology, genetics, and cloning in the real world as well as the underlying ethical and moral concerns of such technology, the original series' abstract and vague conflict of newtypes and oldtypes was now recast as a civil war between genetically engineered space colonists and their natural born, earth bound cousins.
While Gundam Seed was modernizing the Gundam saga thematically, it brought the franchise into the twenty first century in another way; by attracting a new generation of fans, many of them female, to the series and the franchise. The series' popularity has even led to many recent rumours of a sequel, something of a first for an "alternate universe" Gundam story.
While the plot of Gundam Seed is very similar to that of the original series, especially in the first half of the series, the new themes, and the eventual resolution remains creative and fresh.
