So i stand by my statement that given just as much screentime as Athrun, Kira would probably just as popular.

Cagalli has had the most screentime out of the ladies but she does nothing but whinge whinge... they arent really making her anymore popular by doing that.

i do not understand why is he popular in japan

Except that he self destruct every single gundam he used, self destruct, like kamikaze pilot in jap air force, so he is basically popular in japan because of his attitude, jap self sacrife.


base on fact that destiny is copy of seed, sabre will be self destructed by athurn yet again. ha ha ha.

clone lacus is a stupid idea, what if the newspaper find out about chairman trick, he will be kick out of office, oh wait, he is a dictator right, dictator santa claus who gave gundam away like macdonald happy meal. what a dogs dinner. again the jap demonstrate their story telling abilities.

Is it me or is this show progressing REALLY REALLY REALLY slowly? I dunno...ever since Phase 7, it's been just talking and talking and talking. And it's not even that much character development. It's all this politics stuff that seems to get really oversimplified. I dunno...maybe it's just me. Hopefully things will get better after Athrun sorties with Saviour...

I dunno about polls. But My Favorites are the Mineva Crew ^-^" such Vino and Meyrin ^-^" Oh and the Earth Trio ^-^

I wonder if Kira will go down in pthe polls, since we get to know Athrun better.

LOL ya Cagalli doesn't seem like an appealing character this season. Well Shin is not amoung my favorites.

he's popular because he's a bishie, and over 70% of SEED watchers are girls... you do the maths...

bishie = bishounen = pretty boy

well, Gundam SEED is the "new Gundam of the 21st century", and it turns out more of a shoujo anime than shounen anime it seems, based on the composition of its viewers oh, and AFAIK girls don't watch Girls Bravo nor DearS, those are fan-service animes strictly for boys

Wow, you can really see how skinny Lacus is in that outside shot of her in the sweater.

I wonder if her and Kira had radiation poisoning?

Fake Lacus is the propoganda agent for Zaft eh? Cool... I guess that's what the Blue Cosmos wanted Fllay to become for them in Seed when they transferred her off the Archangel.

Hmm. Mia is kinda crazy, I wonder if she only became Fake Lacus to try and get near Athrun? Hell if the Hawke sisters already had crushes on him, maybe she did too...

I fear for Lacus if she meets Mia, I think Mia might go wacko and try to kill Lacus and replace her permanently

That english speaking Haro is really annoying...lol Man I hope the real Haro Pink-chan fights the English speaking Haro and beats the crap out of it...

Man...That would be really really awesome...heh

Gundam has a lot of female fans, especially since Gundam Wing... Infact when they had the Gundam Seed conventions they were saying there was more female fans there then male fans.

DearS and Girls Bravo are also aimed more at guys, that's why there's so much fanservice

lol yeah personally I don't know any girls watching those male-oriented fan-service shows like Girls Bravo or DearS... umm... do girls want to get serviced with hot bodies of girls? Aishiteruze Baby is clearly a shoujo show on the other hand

Hmm... I think Mia looks innocent and sincere enough... for now at least... she clearly worships Lacus IMO...

English Haro is funny to listen to, but of course it won't stand a chance against the super espionage device pink-chan

I'm not super sensitive to this kind of thing, but could you stop using the term "jap"? You may as well start calling me a nigger.

I was a bit annoyed when watching episode 10, when I saw Gilbert refer to "ZGMF-23S Savior".

What the HELL?!

The adomination and oxymoron called "American English" must DIE.... NOW!

I think "Savior" is the official English name, isn't it? And its unsurprising that they used American English for it.

Is there an official Japanese name for the ZGMF-23S Savior? Or is the kanji 救世祖 I read somewhere a total figment of my imagination?

actually it should be Saviour... at least in First Attack trailer it's shown clearly as Saviour... however the way it sounds in Japanese, セイバー , is "seiba-"...

I think the official English name (shown in the First Attack trailer) should be Saviour Gundam, the official Japanese name is セイバーガンダム (reads : seibaa gandamu), while AFAIK the chinese fansites translate it into 救世主高达 .

It should be "Saviour".

"Savior" is some bastardized 'american-english' version...
