The Mobile Suit Gundam SEED anime series is animated by the Japanese anime studio Sunrise and directed by Mitsuo Fukuda. It aired from October 5, 2002 to September 27, 2003, with fifty episodes on TBS. As with other series from the Gundam franchise, Gundam SEED takes place in a parallel timeline, in this case the Cosmic Era, the first to do so. In this era, mankind has developed into two subspecies: Naturals, who reside on Earth and Coordinators, genetically-enhanced humans capable of withstanding the rigors of space who inhabit orbital colonies. The story revolves around a young Coordinator Kira Yamato who becomes involved in the war between the two races after a neutral space colony is invaded by the Coordinators.
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED was dubbed in English and its first English air date was on April 17, 2004 on the American cable network Cartoon Network. It was later broadcast on Canada's YTV starting on September 10, 2004, Australia's Cartoon Network Australia starting on December 12, 2005, and the United Kingdom's AnimeCentral starting on January 5, 2008.
Seven themes of music were used for the original version of the series. Its openings were "Invoke" (INVOKE -インヴォーク-, Invōku?) by T.M.Revolution from episode one to thirteen, "Moment" by Vivian or Kazuma from fourteen to twenty six, "Believe" from twenty seven to forty, and "Realize" for the rest of the series both by Nami Tamaki. The three ending themes are "Anna ni Issho Datta no ni" (あんなに一緒だったのに?, lit. "Although We Were Always Together") by See-Saw from episodes one to twenty six, "River" by Tatsuya Ishii from twenty seven to thirty nine, and "Find the Way" by Mika Nakashima towards the end. The English TV dub used a 30 second shortened version of "Invoke" as its opening, but used the same endings as the original. The English DVD dub uses the original openings in their original format. For Japan's HD remasterization, Gundam SEED was cut the two recap episodes from its original broadcast. FictionJunction's new theme "Distance" replaced all uses of "River" with the exception of episode 40 with "Akatsuki no Kuruma" (暁の車?) by FictionJunction.
A sequel called Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, aired from October 9, 2004 to October 1, 2005, also with fifty episodes. Both SEED and SEED Destiny have special editions which are condensed versions of the series that include additional footage. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73: Stargazer, which is directed by Susumu Nishizawa, is a three-episode original net animation (ONA). The first episode of the side story was first streamed on the internet on July 14, 2006, but it premiered a week earlier on July 7, 2006 at Tokyo Anime Center's Akiba 3D Theater.

“Religious literature has eminent examples, and if we run over our private list of poets, critics, philanthropists and philosophers, we shall find them infected with this dropsy and elephantiasis, which we ought to have tapped.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“He who eats the fruit should at least plant the seed; ay, if possible, a better seed than that whose fruit he has enjoyed.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.”
—Václav Havel (b. 1936)
“From three to six months, most babies have settled down enough to be fun but arent mobile enough to be getting into trouble. This is the time to pay some attention to your relationship again. Otherwise, you may spend the entire postpartum year thinking you married the wrong person and overlooking the obviousthat parenthood can create rough spots even in the smoothest marriage.”
—Anne Cassidy (20th century)
“I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I.- men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep- hole and missing laundry list school.... Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“Martin, a woman hasnt got any political opinions. I run this farm to suit myself. Ill shoot the daylights out of anybodyBritish, Indian or Americanthat thinks he can come around here monkeyin in my business. That satisfy ya?”
—Lamar Trotti (18981952)
