Not the best premium edition but not bad.

I bought this to replace an older set &keep the original dub.
The set itself is nice, great artwork, nice box, like the clear o ring to cover it.
SD + movies is on 3 disc, which is a great space saver for the shelf.
HD artwork is really nice, like they skipped some of the recap stuff. Dub wasn't impressive though, imo. Voices seemed to lack emotional connection at times some dialog and phrases seemed out of place. Pronunciation of names is tough from Japanese to English, but from the old to new dub it drove me crazy. "New" scenes are mostly from the movies, a few weren't, ex; perfect strike. Was cool to see that.
If you want to update your old sets to new but want the old dub, buy this, you won't be able to after this set is gone. If your hesitant for the new dub, try it on funimation 1st. If you don't care about the dubs or just not old, wait for the regular release, save some money.
Not a bad set but a few extra physical perks would have made this more worth it I think.

Excited, then disappointed...

I find that these days, even if there is nothing "wrong" with the way something was originally done, set up, or dubbed, there is this incessant "need" to change it. This "need" has been getting more and more in the way as of late, and it is sad in more than one way.

This is an excellent series, where one of the few times Dubs have ever been on point where it was no where near a disappointment, until 2020... This new re-dubbing is atrocious, where it feels more like improvised ad-lib than dubbing.

I love the box art for this product, the artbook is also great. The available "Original" is wonderful to have, sad that I feel the need to rip the old audio to re-time and encode over the HD Remake video. You should never have to feel that way about the remake of a great product.

My first anime is watchable again!

So, my five-star review is completely sentiment-based. I'm not a fan of the redub.
But, my old DVD copy was nearly impossible to watch at this point. The animation really showed its age on newer TVs. Finding this changed that. I can enjoy my old friend again with this Blu Ray.
I can't begin to describe the excitement I felt when I found this. Gundam Seed isn't the best anime out there, not even in my top twenty, but it holds a special place for me. This was the anime that got me into anime, the show that made me think "this is different than anything that I normally watch, I want to find more".

The box set is big, but well designed, though it feels like there is a lot of empty space in it. would have loved to have a plush haro or soundtrack. just seems like a missed opportunity.

the new dub took some time to get used to, lines I expected to hear were redone, and I'm not a fan of that, but I am more than happy with the original dub coming with it. I will admit that all future viewings will be the original.

overall it's good, but it just feels like it's missing something.
