Gundam Seed Destiny Final Plus




This OVA is basically an extended version of episode 50 which was the final episode of the series. I'm not really going to summarize what happened but I will cover the new footage at the end though. Before that, I would like to mention that instead of the 4th OP being played, the insert song Vestiage was the OP which had a combination of various OP footage along with some new footage for the OP. After the destruction of the Requiem cannon and Messiah, PLANT and ORB sign a ceasefire which lead to negotiations to stop the war. Lacus acted as a bridge between PLANT and ORB returned home to PLANT under the request of the Supreme Council. Shinn, Lunamaria, Meyrin, and Athrun showed up at the grave of the people who died in the EA attack against ORB which killed Shinn's sister. Shinn hated going to ORB but realized that it wasn't like this in the past which he used the flower example as regardless how beautiful they are, people will blow them away. They looked at the grave again when they see Kira and Lacus showed up with some flowers. Athrun introduces Shinn to Kira as the pilot of Freedom which shocks both Shinn and Lunamaria. Kira extends his hand out to Shinn and thought he wouldn't take it but he does. Kira tells him that no matter how many times the flowers are blown away they will replant them and asks him to fight together which he accepts. Kira and Lacus, Athrun and Meyrin, and Shinn and Lunamaria go on to their seperate paths.

It was a much better ending compared to the episode 50 of the TV series but what happened with Athrun and Cagalli's relationship? Did Athrun went with Meryin instead? Was Rey really Talia and Gilbert's child? I guess those questions aren't going to be answered. I really want to see what happened to the characters afterwards like Murrue and Mwu and what happened to them. At least the ED was done by See-Saw which they should have done the final ED for Gundam Seed but at least I got some justice this time around. Will there be a third Gundam Seed series or an entirely new universe? Who knows but I'll be waiting for the next Gundam series?

    The final episode and OVA were both excellent. I personally believe that Athrun ended up with Cagalli. For one, in a final ending wallpaper of GSD, it showed the two together. I liked the Lacus and Kira part a lot, and I loved how Lacus negotiated so well for the Plants. It showed just how truly powerful she is.

    I'm guessing that Meyrin just accompanied Athrun to the grave thing to meet with Shinn and Lunamaria. I see no point why Athrun would dare leave Cagalli for an overly clingy and shallow girl. Gah. I hate Meyrin.

    I am sure that Athrun did not end up with Meyrin. As in the Destiny Special edition IV ending, you can see that Athrun was wearing the Orb uniform and Meyrin was wearing the ZAFT green uniform. If Meyrin is going to be with Athrun, she should be following him to the Orb. Kira was wearing the ZAFT uniform because Lacus is in ZAFT, so for Athrun, he is wearing the Orb uniform must be because of Cagalli. I think the person that Athrun reslly love is Cagalli and the feelings to Meyrin must be friends. Although Meyrin followed Athrun when they leave the grave, they are not standing very close together almost like Kira and Lacus. Even for Shinn and Lunamaria, they give you a feeling of very close together. I did not get that feeling from Athrun and Meyrin.
