Sometimes, sequels to popular series work. Most of the time, they don't. Destiny was one of the latter.

STORY - The fact that this is a direct sequel to a Gundam series already puts Destiny's story at a disadvantage. Think about it -- all Gundam series start with war and end with resolution. Thus, SEED had resolution, and the only way for Destiny to begin is by destroying that resolution. And it has to be a cheap and forced-feeling destruction because there's hardly two year's difference between the end of the first series and the start of the sequel since they wanted to reuse a majority read more

Story: Although I thoroughly enjoyed Gundam Seed, Gundam Seed Destiny was not what I had hoped all together. My only objections were that the ending seemed VERY rushed and everything happened way too quickly in the last episode. And the ending is a really critical part of any anime, so it's important to really take care with it. I don't feel it was done as well as it's prequel. However the remainder of the story was great. I was very happy with some of the small plot twists that once again separated the character's beliefs and made them have to realize what they are really read more

Destiny is a tale of two shows, the show it could have been versus whatever the hell the staff of the show presented it as. To get to the point, I’ll point out the shows main problems immediately. The show’s pacing, character development and plot I felt were all horrible and on top of that unoriginal.

Destiny started off better off than any Gundam series I’ve watched so far. While most series in Gundam canon usually start off slow and tedious. Destiny gave you some brief, but useful enough introductions. The age old practice of stealing Gundams right from under the read more

The Gundam meta series is colossal in size, and the fanbase splits are arguably even bigger than the franchise itself. Get any two Gundam fans into a room, and you're bound to find some difference or another that would make a big enough difference.

You have fans of Universal Century, 00, Wing, G, Turn A, SEED and X, all of whom like something about their respective series/timelines that they feel other fans cannot see.

Most/almost all of the above fans, however, including fans of SEED, have a notorious reputation for particularly hating Destiny, which is rather surprising since Gundam fans are notorious for not really being able read more

Anime: Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo
Directed by the great Fukuda, both are masterpieces of anime-saving level separated only by time.
-Opening animation similarly features familiar scenes triggering memories of Gundam Seed but not quite the same.
-Heavy utilization of caricatures in an attempt to portray discrimination, betrayal and jealousy, firmly believing they succeeded.
-Features very expansive settings with endless possibilities yet somehow only focus on a tiny cast.
-Main characters are logic-defying, utterly stubborn in whatever they do, spearheaded by extreme stupidity yet never learn anything which invokes audience empathy from their teenager days, adding a unique layer of depth to character writing
-If you're ever confused, there's always a  read more

Anime: After War Gundam X
Earth vs Colonies, protagonists are similar (Shinn and Garrod), Groups fighting for freedom (Minerva Crew and Freeden Crew) against tyrannical organizations (UNE and Space Revolutionary Army and Earth Alliance/Blue Cosmos). Twists occur and something behind the scenes is seeking far greater than just ending the war.

Some themes in Gundam Seed Destiny and FFVIII are alike, sci fi based, dark, and something that is dead will return.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
morality of good, evil, and grey, character's goals intervene others to achieve peace, earth vs colonies, pacifism, neutral kingdom of peace, what is right and wrong, and sense of right and justice. Only difference is that in Seed Destiny, it takes to a different level between races (naturals and coordinators) and the choice to make a future whereas in wing it is all about war, peace, and weapons.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
Gilbert Durantal's actions and motives are similar to Char Aznable and they both have the same VA. The universe in each story are very similar since Seed is the remake of the original. The story is modeled after the original as well.
