During the opening ceremony of the establishment for the full-scale Freedom Gundam statue in Shanghai on Friday, Bandai Namco Group announced a project titled Gundam Seed Project Ignited. The project, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED anime series, features multiple installments, including the sequel film that was announced in 2006. Mitsuo Fukuda is returning to helm the film.

The original Mobile Suit Gundam SEED television anime aired between Fall 2002–2003 in 50 episodes. The 50-episode Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny sequel anime series aired from Fall 2004–2005, followed by the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny Final Plus: The Chosen Future OVA in December 2005.

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Movie on MAL

Sunrise imo dug themselves into a whole by creating too many alternate timelines that were not able to compete with modern anime franchises.

Wing, 00, IBO, G Figter. That is just too many alternate timelines that people are not going to care about. Ultimately, I think people are going to skip these series altogether if they are never going to lead anything.

This Seed anime film is definitely long overdue. But I am not sure if Sunrise has any plans to add more ovas or films to seed since the writer passed away.

I don't care what anyone thinks, Gundam Seed is the most successful Alternate Gundam timeline. Just go to your gunpla store and see the aisle of seed kits.

one of the only anime that I wish to have awesome music to go along with the war. Hope to see a nuclear bomb explosion level of hype.

I don't even watch Gundam SEED, and I know how big this news is. It's been a long time coming.

True, but Gundam Seed's OPs and EDs had a lasting impression on me.

This ED made me very sad when one of the side characters die



The soundtrack is definitely amazing in this series.
Akatsuki no Kuruma will always be the best ED. Jesus Yamato, that shit was perfect.


Akatsuki is a great song but the opening and ending songs were great as well. That piano music was awesome too as was the moment Kira descends from the colonies with the stolen Gundam (Freedom i think it was). Too many songs and music to mention really.

Remember i had a contact working in Namco back in 2006 and i was fighting with people all around cause he was telling me that rumour has it the new SEED was like a couple of years away from happening (hell i was fighting with people about this until 2010 when i finally gave up).
Well it never did happen back then so i am very happy that it finally happens now. I just hope they follow in the footsteps of SEED, Destiny was ok but it was way too similar to SEED (just the other way around) so not as good. Also seeing the original cast would be great.

Wow... I'd say better late than never. Maybe in the minority here but Seed is by far my favorite Gundam series. Destiny was a little eh for me cause they fucked up Shin so much and could have just had Kira play a more minor role but they just had to shove him and be the mc for the last half of the show, I never really would have minded that but the way it transitioned was off. Wonder whom the MC of this sequel film will be, will it be someone new that Kira, Shin and Athrun needs to fight or play a role model too or instead will we have all 3 of them be the MCs, if so then I dont see how anything can be a match for them unless we talking about a massive handicap where Kira fights in a zaku,

Anyways yall heard of the backstage controversies behind this right? we most likely could have gotten this sooner but damn.. also I wonder if Cagali's va will come back considering what happened. Im pretty sure Shin will be calmer now, probably akin to Kira when he started calming down during the 2nd half of Seed. Also Kira is like.. a high ranking official in ZAFT now right? considering this is a sequel,


I just hope that they are not using the name to drag people back into the series. I can't help to think that they will put Kira, Shin, Cagali and Lacus in the 2nd row just to introduce a new generation. Sure hope i am wrong.

I know theres a project for seed on going behind the scene. but now they come and announce it officially, im really excited. means they already going full speed now.

it doesnt matter if destiny getting a lot of flak overseas, but just from seeing how they treat the HD remaster with many re-draw scenes compared to other older series already shows Seed has a lot of audience (and haters), its worth their money to produce.


yes i agree. Seed OP & ED were really good and were my favorite especially that first ED, gives that sense of heavy drama. altho at the same time you could say that almost every Gundam series has good OP/ED

It was the soundtrack that had a lasting impression on everyone, the music, the lyrics, it was awesome and unlike most modern anime it had numerous songs and music for us to listen to (i see new anime and the soundtracks have maybe 2-3 tracks i like, SEED and Destiny had like 5-6 tracks i liked in each).

oh i remember that part. i cry a little when that song appear. Kira went thru a lot in Seed. also like how the romance interests help him by becoming his mental support. unlike in some other series where they sometime drag down the MC.
its no wonder why people want him back in destiny when it aired (beside the strike freedom kit reason)

time to re-watch seed i guess

this is the most excited I have ever been for an upcoming anime, especially because I had lost all hope for this happening. I'm curious whether this takes place far enough in the future that we'll get new Gundams, or if it will use the Destiny suits. At least we'll probably get some cool new Gunpla from this lol.

I don't know about this one because I had mixed feelings on Gundam Seed and Seed Destiny shouldn't been made at all. If this film can make up for the disappointment created by Seed Destiny, then I will give it a chance.

I don't know when Sunrise started employing Necromancers but they're doing a great job. Excited for this.
