Gundam SEED Destiny – Final Plus

OP Sequence

Special OP: vestige by TM Revolution

Mostly stuff from the other OPs, with a scattering of new images – mainly the ones you see above.

In the aftermath of the war, ORB and PLANT made peace, and at the request of the council, Lacus returned to PLANT. Sometime later, Shinn, Lunamaria, Athrun, and Meyrin visit the memorial spot by the sea. They are joined by Kira and Lacus, and Shinn finally gets introduced to the pilot of Freedom Gundam. The two shake hands and agree to fight and defend together from now on, along with Athrun. In the final moments, we see Lacus entering the PLANT council room looking very important.

I didn’t summarize the first 36 or so minutes of the episode because it’s basically the extended version of the final episode, so although there is additional footage, the story is still the same. Some of the biggest additions I saw include one near the beginning with Athrun hugging Cagalli goodbye before going into space, and a scene between Gilbert and Rau Le Creuset where Gilbert says that man really likes to fight. It also looked to me like a lot of the added stuff was merely stock footage spliced in and mixed around.
As for the extended ending, it only sheds a little bit of light on what happened afterward. We all could have guessed that they made peace, and in addition to that, they showed us that Kira and Shinn finally get introduced to each and that Lacus seems to be returning to PLANT looking quite powerful, perhaps as the new chairwoman (that’s just speculation though). Oh, and it appears they don’t give CagalliXAthrun fans anything to work with, as Athrun walks away from the meeting with Meyrin and Cagalli seems pretty occupied with being the leader of ORB. They did give plenty of KiraXLacus screen-time though, from the OP shot to Lacus putting her head on Kira’s shoulder as they walk away.
Overall, I’m not horribly impressed by this episode, though it does give more closure than the final minutes of episode 50. But even though I’m a sucker for closure, this episode alone can’t redeem Gundam SEED Destiny as a whole. Ah, well…Here’s to hoping that the next Gundam series is better.

    i love Gundam Shows have been watching them since i was about 8 years old i have been looking for them on the Enternet to buy but no luck so far. And on Gundam Seed Destiny here in Canada we are only at phase 7 in 2007 :’(. if some one could tell me a site were i could find them all in Englsh would be very happy. i Just hope they keep makeing them. i wonder if they would make one after the (Wing) Series would be also cool.

    The ending result, the men who caused all the mess and made such nonsense is the stupid Director and there Staff to be partly to blamed for ruined the scenario of Shinn

  • May 18, 2007 at 1:37 pmRage

    Many shown such ridiculous unexplaination:

    1. The Strike Freedom easily destroy or disable the fortress with just a single shot.
    2. Eternal survive against some huge numbers of Zaku and the Escort Fleet.
    3. Akatsuki survive the Minerva main beam it hasn’t have nuclear reactor.
    4. Lacus already becomes a Chairman? Doesn’t have much shown crediblity from what she doing,
    and defies the Dulllindal wishes to restore order and made him a criminal without any
    5. Kira thinks the way of doing himself he’s always right.
    6. Shinn shakes hand Kira amd makes friend (I thought he gonna berserk and punch kira face).

  • August 1, 2007 at 10:34 pmAthrun Zala

    please don’t hate shinn…he just a victim and used by Durandall..also he’s like a brother to Athrun
    don’t hate meyrin…she just a girl with love for Athrun…personally i prefer her than cagalli…for being honest with her own feeling
    and for Yzak,Dearka see you guys again in the next…..

    Meyrin sucks!! I hate her!! Bloody bi**h!! She sucks!!

  • September 13, 2007 at 9:53 ameTerniA

    Heey!!!I really really hope Athrun and Cagalli could end up together. The series didn’t give us clear explanation for the end of their relationship..But I hate Meyrin!!!

  • September 25, 2007 at 7:34 amkai_yukari

    Still AsuCaga.

  • September 26, 2007 at 9:53 amcaji_acotaku

    …i’m a super cagallixathrun fan…
    …gurls like meyrin & meer are freakishly awful… i hate them… i hope in the movie they’ll be out of the scene… in the lacusxkiraxflay triangle flay died… and good meer’s gone too, so why don’t meyrin die as well… i’ve no problem with lunamaria anymore since she seems to be with shinn now…

    …also i think yuki had a point… how come he(mitsuo fukuda) seems to favor lacus over cagalli… i don’t really have nothing against lacus(except that her hair’s pink, which i very much dislike), but i’m getting jealous that she’s overshadowing cagalli… c’mon, cagalli’s orb’s princess and representative, an able gundam pilot, and the main hero’s twin, while lacus is a former plant chairman’s daughter, an idol singer, and kira’s love interest… both can seed… they have almost the same status so why…

    finally i’ve just finished watching this series, and although i really don’t know what really happened to Cagali and Athrun , i do hope they would end up together and get married weee! but don’t get me wrong for meyrin fans out there, it’s just that cagali and athrun ‘s love for each other has been through a lot of challenges and it would be more satisfying if at the end they would end up together, don’t you think so?

  • October 16, 2007 at 12:57 pmella

    i don’t think that athrun would just forget cagali that easily, the love that they had was deep, so i’d say that athrun would still go for Cagali, and if ever athrun would do such a thing i would really hate his character i swear.

  • October 21, 2007 at 10:27 pmtype name here

    The ending overall was good…
    I don’t clearly understand what’s going on with Athrun, Meyrin and Cagalli. My annalysis is that Athrun and Meyrin aren’t that close, because Athrun walks away looking somewhat less happier than the other five people, and Meyrin walks a little behind Athrun. I think thats something to think about.
    But being a deep Cagalli fan myself I could be just giving biased reactions, and looking too deep into things.

  • October 28, 2007 at 2:54 amluigicapeto

    so basically this ending opens up the scenario for the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED: The Movie. Which basically according to the official website everyone would be on the same side for sure this time that is the ZAFT forces, and which would also include Kira since Lacus is with PLANT. Now the question is, that is that there is no news recent news in the website, what would be the plot for the movie? Oh and its coming out next year for sure =D

  • December 3, 2007 at 4:25 amrenn_jgirl

    I think gundam seed destiny is a good anime. I like it so much. It is make me happy but make me sad too. How about you?

  • January 5, 2008 at 2:02 amshin_rose

    ok I c but when lacus walking into that room all important what happened to kira after that ? is he still with her?

  • January 14, 2008 at 1:25 amkimikodatenshi

    Thought it’s quite a few months late and all, yeah this version of an ending was much better than ep 50 BUT the ending in Gundam Seed Destiny Special Edition is my favourite of the possible endings. So go see it!

  • January 14, 2008 at 1:28 amkimikodatenshi

    p.s. the GSD SE ending (4th movie) gives a little more on kira/lacus

  • January 29, 2008 at 4:37 pmGregoryHitokiriBattosai

    Sunrise has announced the production of a Gundam SEED theatrical movie. Little information exists about the story. Houko Kuwashima, voice actress of character Stella Loussier, has also stated on her “SEED Club blog” that the character will somehow also have a role in the film, presumably in flashback scenes. Lacus, Yzak Joule, and Dearka Elsman will return as members of the PLANT Supreme Council and Kira, Athrun, Shinn, and Lunamaria Hawke will be part of the ZAFT military.

  • February 1, 2008 at 7:47 pmElli

    I can’t believe that Stella died! nOO! I love asucaga!!! Yay! I also like KiraxLacus. And Shiho appears in this one!!!! I didn’t know she looked like that. But YAY!

  • March 8, 2008 at 7:47 pmJay

    If you pay attention to the ending of this episode,

    1. We see Kira in the same military uniform as Yzak (Commander status in ZAFT)
    2. We see Athrun in an Orb uniform
    3. We see Meyrin in a Zaft Uniform too.

    Judging from these, i’d say kira stays with Lacus at Plant, Athrun goes back to Orb with Cagalli, and Meyrin resumes her position with her sister in ZAFT.

    Show Spoiler ▼

    That was an extended edition I found ;) So there is still a possibility for you Cagalli x Asuran fans.

  • March 26, 2008 at 6:53 amrUbymOon14

    I just wanted to say WOW! your site is really good and i’m proud to be one of your surfers

  • December 6, 2008 at 2:30 amKari

    i guess. its not that bad. GSD was definitely rushed at the ending, but it was pretty good. do you know if there was one edit episode where instead of freedom fighting shinn, it was arthun fighting shinn. or was it the movie?

  • February 1, 2011 at 8:08 pmorbprincesscagalli

    I just can’t wait for the movie to come out cuz I want to see lots of cagalli action and ASUCAGA moments! well I know that it’ll be athrunxcagalli in the movie since fukuda did say that athrun becomes the admiral and returns to orb to be by her side! and he also made two AMCs to confirm athrun and cagalli’s relationship! so I’m 100% sure that it’ll be athrunxcagalli in the movie! ~**cagalli**~
