I was just loitering around on the Wikipedia page and I was browsing through random things and I finally typed in Gundam SEED to rekindle a little bit of the past. After that I watched Gundam SEED Special Edition since the whole series would've taken too long to watch and I have to say, "Wow." I forgot what I was so into the anime so long ago and I'm still amazed by it. The nature of humanity, the effects of war, and such it's still very true to reality. Yes we haven't begun any genetic manipulation to that degree yet, but I can see how such things can spark wars and how wars can make people think twice about the nature of humanity. Anyone who haven't seen it, I recommend that you watch it. If you watch the Special Edition all 50+ episodes of the original series have been condensed into 3 OVA-long episodes.
