Synopsis

Three TV movies complied from Kidou Senshi Gundam SEED series.

1. The Empty Battlefield (Kokuu no Senjou)
2. The Far-Away Dawn (Harukanaru Akatsuki)
3. The Rumbling Sky (Meidou no Sora)

Much like the Kidou Senshi Gundam theatrical movies, the Gundam Seed: Special Edition movies are intended to be an override of the story from the TV series.

These episodes are in fact a complete recap of all 50 episodes of the TV series and were first shown on television in Japan. The special edition episodes feature some new scenes and tweaks to previously animated scenes. The first special, The Empty Battlefield, which compiled episodes 1–21 of the series, was aired in two parts on Japanese TV in March 2004, followed by the next special, The Far-Away Dawn, which was episodes 22–40, in July 2004. The final special, The Rumbling Sky, which was episodes 41–50. While the story is overall unchanged, there are a few minor changes. In addition, several scenes are re-animated and re-dubbed.

The main problem I have with pretty much all the Gundam series is that they are far too long for what they are. The release of the movies pretty much guarantees that I can watch these shows without being bored by useless drama and filler. All of the Gundam movies have done a great job of rounding out the series into a succinct bundle that allows a viewer who doesn't want to parse 50 episodes to sit down and watch a set of movies.

That being said, I first was recommended Gundam SEED from friends who thought the anime was groundbreaking and excellent. ...

These gundam movies, while just a compilation of the action scenes of Gundam Seed, shows you many things that the anime series does not. Things like who was rusty?, the fifth member of athrun's team, or what were kira's thoughts about his mother, or even the biggest bombshell of all- what does Rau La Creuset's face look like? If you want to find the answers, than these movies are for you.

Mixed Feelings
So Seed is one of those really divisive series. It was really popular among the general anime crowd when it came out, but has a mostly poor reputation among Gundam fans, who complain that it's largely a rehash of the original series. I'm a long time Gundam fan who got out of the fandom for a bit when this was popular, but I finally heard there were digest movies that supposedly did a decent job condensing the series, so I figured I'd give it a shot and try to give it a fair chance.

Gundam fans are right about it borrowing a lot from ...
