"Gundam SEED Destiny" Continues Its Downfall

You know what’s been lacking in Gundam SEED Destiny lately? Justice.

Well, the Cosmic Era is about […]

"Gundam SEED Destiny" Vol. 8: Freedom Destroys Destroy

"Gundam SEED Astray" Break Through the Crappy Scheduling to Freedom, Gundam!

Manga based on Gundam series are nothing new, even if we’ve only got a fraction of them here in the United States.
