Mobile Suit Gundam SEED: Episodes 1-13: The Raid of Heliopolis and The Battle of Orbit

The series we are talking about today has a very special place in my heart. I was a die-hard Gundam fan in my youth, and while I’ve grown distant from it in recent years, there is a strong fondness still there. Gundam Wing was one of my first anime I watched, and I still enjoy it, despite not having aged well. However in the early 2000s, at the tail end of the 4kids-Toonami era, there was another Gundam series that came out. One with a better story, better animation, and some kick-ass music. Loved by many, and disliked by just as much, it is a series that has resonated to this day regardless. Now it is finally time for me to talk about it, so after the cut, let’s dive into the first story-arc of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED: The Raid of Heliopolis and The Battle of Orbit!

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed: Gundam “For Dummies” (but also really good)

(Reposted from the Tumblr blog, which can be found here)

There is probably fewer series in the realm of Anime that have as long and varied history as the Gundam Franchise. Starting in the late 1970s, Mobile Suit Gundam has become a cornerstone of Japanese culture and animation, often seen by some as Japan’s version of Star Trek or Star Wars. Regardless it has spawned well over a dozen different series, several OVAs, an armful of video games, and quite possibly a literal mountain of Gunpla model kids.

With so many series, Gundam has had it’s fair share of hits and misses, as almost all franchises do when they have such length. People will argue to the end of time what is the best series, but almost all can agree that only a few have left major marks on both of the franchise, and anime in general. Today we are going to take a look at once such series, one that remains surprisingly controversial among its fans. After the cut, let’s take a look into the 2002 series Mobile Suit Gundam Seed
