Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

CE73 Stargazer, a very much preferred “Gundam Seed”

Personally I’m not a supporter of Gundam Seed and the sequel Destiny. However i really like this OVA , Stargazer. I like how Stargazer’s purpose isn’t to fight like the other gundams out there. Aslo liked it how its original “intent” was to explore space much like Voyager space probe or Pioneers space probe. But of course like all gundam “main robot”, this can fight.

Would be nice if Stargazer was shown first then using this as background information and build up SEED franchise from it. Probably something like Earth humans live in peace until Space humans demand rights to return back to earth and war breaks out. Weak GMs and “Macross-ish transforming GMs” by the Earth side and Powerful Gundams by the Space side. Finally, earth side develops Zaku-type with the aid of captured space scientist and finally earth gets a chance to fight back. Some how or rather the war lengthens causing both sides to incur heavy loses and they decided to sign a truce. Which the sequel, Destiny show how they try to maintain the peace with rebels groups fighting both sides and finally it connect the dots to Stargazer. But then again I guess this would make the Gundam franchise a boring show. But still, Gundam isn’t really a “young” franchise. I mean it could explore more of this type of “boring” concepts. Less gundam fighting, more on politics and stuff. Like how Stargate universe is doing.

Personally I’m a bigger fan of “realistic” gundams like the 08th MS team which i think has to be one of the best Gundam out there. However, I’m starting to like Gundam Unicorn a lot but the psycho frame thing has probably taken a bit too far. It feels like a super robot sort of idea, much like how i distaste Gundam OO. I’m sure there’s tons of Gundam OO fans out there but as an old school gundam guy when i first saw episode one of Gundam OO , with the stupid cross stance that Gundam OO took is a turn off. It feels like a evangelion wanna-be in a gundam shell which is Not a good combination in my opinion. I like evangelion a lot by itself and i like gundam too but merging them together? Pfff I’ll pass. Although I’m quite interested in watching Gundam OO movie. I guess this has became a somewhat of a rant instead of just plainly talk about Stargazer. =P ごめん。

To end it off, yes Do catch Stargazer if you can!
