Product Description

With both PLANT and Earth Forces entering a state of uneasy truce, the world has once again found itself at peace. Yet for some, the war has never ended. Shin Asuka, a coordinator who has lost his entire family during the Battle of Orb, now fights with ZAFT in their newest prototype: the Impulse Gundam. When one of these machines is stolen by Federation forces, the world once again spirals toward chaos. Sequel to the blockbuster hit Gundam Seed. Genre: Action/Sci-Fi/Mecha.

Amazon.com

The follow-up to the popular Gundam Seed (2002-2003), Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny (2004-2005) takes place two years later, in 73, Cosmic Era. The hero of the Destiny is Shin Asuka, whose family was killed during the previous war: he pilots the latest and most complex Gundam, which assembles itself in midair, like Gekigangar III in Nadesico. Shin has to fight three raiders who steal new-model Gundams during the visit of Princess Cagalli Athha of Orb to ZAFT Chairman Durandal. Athrun Zala, the hero of Gundam Seed, has given up combat duty to serve as an aid to Athha, but by the end of episode 5, he's back in the cockpit where he belongs. The conflict between the Naturals and the genetically enhanced Coordinators remains the underlying cause of the military and political struggles. The raid on the ZAFT base gets Gundam Seed Destiny off to a roaring start, and director Mitsuo Fukuda choreographs the land and space mecha battles with impressive skill. (Rated 13 and older: violence, brief nudity, minor risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

A Kid's Review on September 2, 2006
Format: DVD
Well, I've got to admit, Gundam Seed Destiny is one of the ones you put between your Blood+ and Rahxephon. GSD has AMAZING CGed footage, intense battles, and alot more. Not only that, but it's been in the #1 anime spot in NEWTYPE for 9 months now.[caption from it= "NEWTYPE JAPAN readers share their favorite characters and anime..."]

My friend had to MAKE me watch the whole season, and I'm so glad she did.
You see, the thing about GSD is that if you like one character, you'll hate another. Thats why sometimes its seen as a "terrible" anime, but the truth is, I'm glad it's like that. The characters are based off of real personalities- they have FLAWS. In alot of series, you love almost everyone thats around the main character. It's not the same with GSD.

PLOT-
The plot basically revolves around Shinn Asuka [my personal favorite], Athrun Zala, and Kira Yamato. 3 new people [to be precise- Stella, Sting, and Auel] steal three gundams that ZAFT has been developing secretly [HM, THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR] and escapes from PLANT, with Shinn Asuka and Rey chasing them. The story immediatley explodes into action after that event.

Music-
Lets not get started on the music.
I don't need to say anything at all, the music is STUNNING.
With music from T.M Revolution, See-saw, Nami Tamaki, you just HAVE to watch the opening and ending every time it plays.

All in all, this anime is not one you should miss. If you like funny, cute, halarious anime, and absolutley cannot STAND serious animes with battles and arguments, this is not something for you. But if you like some seriousness sometimes, packed with action and finding yourself on the end of your seat after every episode, then pick up GSD and watch it. It's so worth it.

I give it a 9 out of 10.

As you read this I would like you to keep in mind that this is my impression from one viewing of the series which ended about 6 months ago. This review is a review of the original Japanese airing as I have no interest in the English dub. Thus, the English version will not be mentioned.

Gundam Seed Destiny is not a well made show. However, Gundam Seed Destiny is a great guilty pleasure. It's almost as if Sunrise went, "what if we let the fans dictate the direction of the series?" This is pretty evident, given the development of character relationships, direction of events in the plot and the shift of the main hero to the old series' hero halfway through.

In effect, it's fanservice. 50 episodes plus one special (and movies, soon) worth of fanservice. It's pretty much a soap opera for teenagers. The good part about this is, once you're done with all the Ideons and Evangelions out there you can sit down and watch this mindless war/love/drama story without it taxing your mind too much. It's a good show just to chill out to and enjoy.

There are some flaws that cannot be tolerated, though. While the actual animation is a big step up from the cel-sliding of Seed; the over-use of recycled animation is off putting. The fact that they dug up footage from the original Seed to use in the final episodes just made those episodes come off as extremely weak. I hear a number of animation mistakes were changed in the Japanese DVD release, I hope this carries over to the American DVDs. There are also far too many flashbacks and full-on recaps. One can only see a certain death so many times before it loses its impact. The painfully uninspired mechanical designs don't help anything either. The character designs are hit and miss with most people-- I like them.
