"@Niko: X is basically if you took Wing, made Duo the main character, gave him all the skills of Heero, made Hilde moe and turned her into the quiet type, and put it all in a weird halfway-UC timeline sorta place. In other words, Wow....."
Definitely sounds like an improvement.

Double Zeta Gundam or Gundam Wing. I liked them both equally

Gundam SEED (Destiny was not as good) and the current Gundam00 is going amazingly so far!

I'm about 10 episodes into SEED, and I'm throughly impressed.

Gundam Wing was one of the first anime series I obsessed about back when it was airing on Toonami; I'm thinking about snagging the complete collection in a paycheck or two.

Wing is the best in my opinion.
Simply the Best (IMO)

lol i guess i should have put both, Seed was great and gundam 00 has also been surprisingly good. than goodness im not the only one that hated Destiny i thought it was bad, the clip re-usage was the worst ive ever seen in an anime.

My problem with Seed is it's like they gave all the character's the personality of Quatre Winner when he was at his lowest, and perpetuated the same theme the entire show. I realize Gundam Wing did a similar thing, but at least they were talking about something new that hadn't been a prime focus in a gundam series before (pacifism, unmanned weaponry), whereas Seed seemed to repeat the very basic and painfully obvious theme "war is bad! killing is bad!" that we've heard in tons of shows even outside of Gundam... at least when the original 0079 did that they moved on. There was also the theme of genetic manipulation, but that was basically a realigned equivalent of the whole "Newtypes are superior beings!" themes in the UC series, except Seed takes it further.

That, and I thought some of the designs were just BS. I mean, I still can't understand how the hell the Aegis transforms into that shape of a mobile armor...at least you could see how Wing Gundam did it (even if it was stupid) - the Aegis does it so fast you can't really see it most of the time.

That said, I don't think Seed was really bad, I just think it could have been so much better if it had a better focus rather than the same thing we've seen over and over again....between Gundam F91, Zeta Gundam, and the original First Gundam, if you've seen those you've pretty much seen everything in one form or another that Seed has to offer.

I agree with HeeroYuy. Seed may have been ok, but I had pretty much seen it all before in previous series. To me, it was just merely meh.

I hadn't really though about the characters being like Quatre, but I see it now. Kind of disturbing.

I've seen all of SEED already, as I had prior to that post. I stand by what I said.
