No....SEED is different. It's not angsty-into-men shit, it's angsty in angst into MORE angst and by the end i'm watching a cutting contest between two emo teenagers. It's just awful.
(that and the entire plot was a ripoff of the other gundam, I mean STRAIGHT rip, not like "oh it's similar" more like "oh here's the exact same fucking shit and almost the exact same plot, but from a teenage perspective").
If you like the old gundams Unicorn will probably be the best one for you. It's pretty much the best gundam so far, with the exception of b-movie kung-fu G-Gundam.
Though I still like Endless Waltz, Unicorn is critically the best.
So I take it Bright isn't in SEED? Bright makes men out of all these angsty teenage faggots
