Gundam SEED Was Never Good

Body: 

News flash, history rewriters: Gundam SEED was never good. Stop saying that Gundam SEED Destiny wasn't up to par with the original. I've seen both, and Destiny is only marginally worse.

The series began as copypasta of the original Gundam series, with it's own Newtypes, White Base, Amuro Ray, Bright Noa (split into two character), Char, Side 7, and Earth Federation. Then we move into Zeta copypasta with it's take on the drop operation on Jaburo, then back to 0079 copypasta with the execution of a Giren Zabi.

Anime I'd Like To See Licensed for Region 1 DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray:

Legend of the Galactic Heroes - Sweeping epic space opera, deeply immersed in the philosophy of politics, war, and life. It's 110 episodes long, which means a long wait if it were released volume-by-volume, with three or four episodes per, but if they made season boxsets and released one or two a year, they would have it done in two to four years and it would be awesome. I suggest David Wittenburg as Yang Wen-li in the dub. David Kaye as Reinhard von Lohengramm. Extras could include models, soundtracks, booklets with linear art for ships and/or notes pertaining to the classical music used in each episode. I would guess that a company like Bandai Entertainment or AnimeEigo would pick this up. Maybe Central Park Media.
