I though that something would be wrong because I wasn't sure about the order of those two shows. Thanks for the correction, mate!

So, not all the series are connected -- do different characters appear throughout the different series? Does the ensemble cast change from series to series?

I don't really care about being chronological in terms of release dates, but I would like to be able to follow an ensemble cast from its introduction to the end.

But all your info and lists have been very helpful, thanks again!
If you want to follow the storyline of the Universal Century in the chronological order (so not in the order of the release dates), use my list!

Yes, it seems a lot at first sight, but once you start liking it, you will watch them in a short period of time. I started watching these show in last summer, and I've already finished all of them in the spring.

That's not entirely true. There are some returning characters in Unicorn.

Well, they disguise the returning characters really well.

Both of those shows are necessary as far as I know, so give them another try. It's definitel worth it watching Zeta in my opinion.

Have a few more questions.

-Where is Sai in GSD? Didn't see him at all!
-Does Lacus become new chairman of PLANT?
-Was Dullindal behind the plan to kill Lacus, at the beginning of the series?
-Why does Rey say 'Mother' when clinging onto Talia at the end?
-Does every co-ordinator have SEED?
-Is Akatsuki the best Gundam in the series? It can protect itself and a whole ship with it's shield!
-What's the closure to the characters? Those of you who have read the manga may be better equipped to answer this.

Oh I know, I enjoyed it, when I watched it a few years ago, but then my files got corrupted, late last year I started watching it again, but then school hit hard. Now I have a light load during summer and I plan on finishing it.

@Kirby: I should have guessed that bright would be back, he's everywhere.

@Bright: I'm assuming you mean full frontal?

He's likely getting on with his life.
Quote:

Yes
Quote:

Unknown, but many people think so.
Quote:
-Why does Rey say 'Mother' when clinging onto Talia at the end?
Since Rey is a clone, Talia is the closest thing he has to one.
Quote:
-Does every co-ordinator have SEED?
No, SEED Factor is something separate to Coordinator/Natural, as seen wnen Cagalli goes SEED mode at the end of SEED
Quote:

I suppose ou could think of it like that.
Quote:

I'm no sure what you mean here, but Kira and Athrun both rejoin ZAFT at the END of Destiny, presumably to support Lacus. Cagalli continues to govern ORB.

Ztech maybe you should watch GSD final plus has some extra ending content.

I wish i could see strike rouge IWSP in the movie
It only had 1 frame in GSD, and its one of the coolest striker packs there is.

That has yet to be established, but the final scenes strongly suggest it. Even if she doesn't become chairman, she obviously has decided to take part in PLANT politics, and she would have a great deal of power due to her support base and popularity.

It's never confirmed; but all of the available evidence suggests so, and all of the characters (including Durandal) act as if it's the case. Basically it's a connect-the-dots question, and the dots are clearly numbered.

No. Only five characters have been shown to have some sort of SEEd moment, and there's nothing to suggest that the number is significantly higher than this.

Probably not as Akatsuki has lots of limitations while its outstanding qualities have a fairly narrow range of effectiveness.

I'm not sure what kind of closure you're looking for, but I find that the nifty thing about the Cosmic Era universe is that there are lots of interesting things going on after the show itself is over. Presumably, the characters (Cagalli and Lacus in particular) have a lot of difficulties to overcome as part of the aftermath of the events in Destiny. Any further stories will have to told in the movie rather than the manga.

According to "Data Gundam", a feature in Gundam Ace, it's noted that Lacus, Yzak and Dearka are all members of the PLANT Supreme Council. It doesn't specifically state that she is a chairperson, but who knows at this point.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Here's a question i have, since i'm thinking of doing a HG Tieran, and i'm thinking of slapping Singapore flag decals and markings on it. Any background material from the manga and whatnot would be very appreciate

1) Are the 3 entities in Gundam 00 S1 (Union, AEU and HRL) large singular sovereign states, conducting affairs as one entity (Like the United States of America), or are they more like 3 alliances of smaller sovereign states, with each conducting it own foreign affairs (like today's NATO or the European Union)

The Union and AEU are more like the EU; the HRL is more like a US. However, the president of the US is the de facto leader of the Union, because the US throws its weight around a lot.

Is there a serialized version of Crossbone Gundam Steel Seven I can buy anywhere? I really don't want to collect all the gundam aces because that'd be too much of a pain and I already own most of other series...thanks!
