Definition of plot device: A plot device is an object or character in a story whose sole purpose is to advance the plot of the story, or alternatively to overcome some difficulty in the plot.

Ergo, in some manner, the girls' affection for Athrun is a plot device. Purely a clinical term and objective statement; whether fans loved it or hated it has no bearing on its use.

For the context of the plot device in question, it is called an "unwanted harem" because Athrun does not want the harem. Fans want him to have the harem, then sure. Doesn't make it mean Athrun wants the harem. Ergo, "unwanted harem."

It's also why unwanted harems are still hugely popular in the harem genre. It's popular and sells.
And your point is...?

Did the Orb battle and animating the Perfect Strike suck the budget out of the remaster? I know the final battle was pretty good, but a few new scenes wouldn't hurt now will it?

You mean with Mu's helmet not floating around? That was changed back in the SE. Not surprising it would be included in the remaster.

Sad thing is that Murrue is left to believe at that point that Natarle fired that shot that supposedly killed Mu.

So going by a thread on 4chan, the SEED party that's been delayed for like what, several months now? Is happening on December 1st. The text makes mention of a Phase 3.


So...I'm calling, a SEED movie, or Destiny remaster.

If remasters are counted, then a Destiny Remaster would be Phase 4 (5 if Stargazer is counted). That means, if this is ends up being a new CE animated work, it'll be a movie, OVA, or even a third series, which would make me a happy viewer.

Seconded.

Especially if Sven, Shiho, Yzak, Dearka, or even non-EMO Shinn became a true main character this time.

Shinn is a possibility, although I doubt it. Sven is not, otherwise, this would be Phase 4. The others on your list have much less of a chance than Shinn. It's either Kira, Athrun, Shinn, or someone new.

Of all the possibilities, I'd like to see a movie. Or a new series. Doesn't matter which, I just want to see the CE era after the events of Destiny.

I just want to see more of Kira in white (not the suit, though). But yeah, I'd like to see more of CE as well.

I'd like a new cast to be honest. Kira and co had two full shows. For the sake of creativity, I feel it best to bring in new people.

New people are fine. But if they're going to make a sequel to Destiny, I'd rather they tie in with the end of Destiny. That means Kira, Lacus, and Shinn, at the very least, should be there, even as supporting characters.

Wait, what's this new SEED party about? As a newly minted SEED fan (I've been following the remaster, yet to catch Destiny or the OVAs) more SEED is definitely good news.

I think what fans want the most is some kinda insight to what the hell happened in Destiny’s ending. How Kira ended up in ZAFT and how he’s doing after that. Is Lacus really become the chairwoman? If yes, how could that happened? What becomes of Cagalli-Athrun-Meyrin. What become of Gladys' son now that his mother decided to die with her boyfriend and left him alone , and so on. Many fans will be pissed if the (assumed) new series/OVA doesn’t addressed the above matters at all and just go with new characters and new conflict. It'd be nice if they also show how Sven & Serene was doing after being rescued.

This SEED Party has been the works for a while now. For the longest time the director of SEED said that there would be like, a major announcement. And it appears to be holding true. Be it a movie, new series, or another HD re-master, something SEED related is coming.

And how do we know that it's soon? Has there been an official announcement? If there's to be a Destiny remaster then I might wait it out to watch it
