Three 18 minute episodes with new characters inserted in the Seed timeline.
Other than to redeem the Seed title, I really didn’t see a point of making these three shortened episodes… There’s supposed to be a manga out for it soon so I suppose that’s why. Basically it takes place during the fall of Junius Seven in which the ideals of Patrick Zala catalysts the hate for Coordinators amongst the Naturals yet again. Sven Cal Bayan, pilot of the GAT-X105E Strike Noir, and the Phantom Pain attack strategic points amongst Coordinator territory, killing Coordinator soldiers and civilians. You learn bits and pieces of how his hate for them develops, but as expected, this 45 minute spree does nothing but introduce. On the other side, Coordinator Selene McGriff and her development of the Stargazer, a mobile suit built with the purpose of the exploration of space with Artificial Intelligence Technology, is also introduced. Her fate is somehow entwined with Sven’s and then the thing ends abruptly, only to be continued in the manga. This short encounter did indeed redeem the Seed name, unfortunately it was so underdeveloped due to its time that I can’t say anymore. Overall, bloody, interesting, and hopefully will continue to go somewhere.
