Finished Gundam SEED tonight. As cliche as it could get, I still really enjoyed it. Mecha designs were above average.... and despite a lot of recycled animation during battles, I still found them engaging and entertaining... and all the love interests swapping around tickled my fancy. Character deaths were pretty brutal as well. Its def worth watching for the average fan. Better than Unicorn, but not IBO as far as recently watched Gundam series.

Brave words coming from a man knowing I'm lurking in the dark corners of this place
Meh, could never get into SEED. Outside some damn good Gundam designs (which to be honest most of the Gundam shows I hate have) the show is just trash (and I say this having only watched 5 episodes, I couldn't stomach the similarities between it and the original in the first five episodes (the beginning is damn near a copy of the beginning of the original Gundam, just with more flash and shittier characters)).
Each their own though, I learned a long time ago I'm just an old Gundam fan screaming at the sky about how in my day we didn't need all this flashy stuff to interest the masses. We just need old school storytelling, shitty animation, and a crotchety old Tomino-sensei to draw in the masses
Speaking of Unicorn I really need to get around to watching that.
When Netflix reveals the live action Gundam series. I hope the trailer opens up with Domon Kasshu asking "Do you know this man?"
Unicorn's man protagonist is the most annoying whiney bitch in the entire Gundam universe.
