In the Gundam franchise, SEED and IBO were known by their love-hate relationships among fans. The disdain for IBO deserved a separate piece, but the hate on SEED is understandable. To be fair, Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny are great series, and terrible at the same time. Sure, it got great character stories and suit designs, but the SEED/SEED Destiny prose is not for everyone. I thought it was overly emotional, up to the point that characters became irrational with their actions. And I think it got a bad mix of drama and action, where one overpowers the other.
