This is what happens when 1.you run out of budget (or trying to save your profit margin) 2. Smoke crack before you write a story 3. You are a extremely shitty story writer. I see all 3 of these happening when destiny was made. SEED was slightly less irritating yes.

Didn't Destiny at the time like have the highest budget for any anime ever?

I remember it being like over $20,000 US Dollars per episode which was like over 2 million Yen per episode at the time. I think I read it here on Animesuki even, before the forums were hijacked and most of the postings lost.

ok, in that case Fukada's exceptionally shitty in writing stories.

2 million yen will get you stick figures.

Destiny's budget was well over 35 million yen per episode.

Holy Mother of G*d!!! How can that much money lead to such awful animation, inconsistency, and story?

I know, I know; Hollywood's done worse, but still.

Fuduka and his wifey were probably pocketing some of that money under the table.

Remember the scene in Destiny when the ZAFT chairman Gilbert Durandal gave Athrun the Justice Gundam and how eerily similar the scene looked to a scene in the original SEED?

Bad project managing and directing by Fukuda.

Destiny was almost cancelled three times as they were approaching deadline with nothing finished.

Animators and storyboarders had no idea what to create as the scripts were always late. Thus, you get the 70+ re-used battle animations in "important" battles, as they just go for what they have.

Not all of the budget was used, as there simply wasn't an opportunity to do so due to the bad project management.

Destiny's a nice example of how to not make an anime.

Fukuda really needs to stick to OVAs or short shows.

cancellation might actually be a better news, too bad it wasn't so.

Well, I enjoyed Destiny, and I am sure many others feel the same way.

- Tak (Does it have flaws? You bet! But as a whole show when combined with SEED? It still managed to work)

Of course. And to some, like myself, it left a very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very bitter taste.

I know there's some real genuine reasons as for why some people like Destiny, but they're mostly hidden from view as the Kira and Lacus worshipping beastmen hordes rampage through the internet.

Let's just hope here and now that Setsuna dies a hero's death in the end or something instead of becoming Jesus mk. II.

Dead leads = no money-making sequels!

But yeah, here's to hoping this show doesn't end up being a love-fest.

Do I hate cheap storyboard shows, you bet. Did Destiny suffer some major flaws? OF COURSE!

Yet, I think here is one of the biggest difference between us. I hate sad endings. I hate the idea of having the main character laboring through 50 +/- shows only to die in the very end. By that time, I am possibly immersed with the characters, the world, the society and so on.

But what do I get? Only to exclaim "AW... FUCK!" at the end? Naw. Can't stand that.

It might work in a 120 minute movie (for me), but definitely not a 120 hour show.

Lol very bitter taste indeed. As destiny is the first ever incomplete gundam series that I watched.
Setsuna's unlikely to die but again after he serve his purpose there's no reason to live, Marina however is very likely to die as mother figure/lovers rarely live in gundam universe. Well there has been just one, so I guess I can't really generalize can I.

Tak what you'd get is an emotional response!

I shed tears in episode 50 of SEED.

Same here. Poor Fllay, as well!

Destiny, on the other hand D:
I think most people cheered whenever Shinn got his ass handed to him.

Hmm...if you are Mr. Brown that I know, your response is certainly out of my expectation, but again there can be many swades who watch gundam closely.

I actually expect shinn to die because to a character with that much darkside in him, death is the only way towards redemption. But noooo, that bastard lives! and did a 180.
