Even some of the best mecha series in history have received a lot of criticism over the years from fans, and some have even become infamous for their writing, animation quality, or characters. But even with these flaws, many mecha anime are still enjoyable and don’t deserve all the hate they get.
Mobile Suit Gundam Seed is a modern retelling of the franchise's very first series. It brings back all the old characters and tells their story in a fresh, new way for old and new fans to enjoy. Of course, with any remake, it saw a fair share of backlash from long-time fans.
To this day, many still dislike this installment of the series, seeing it as a poor imitation of the iconic original series. However, Gundam Seeddeserves far more credit than it gets. It's a solid addition overall, and it helped reignite interest in the franchise, allowing for the success of many titles that came after.
