I keep seeing the show depict this amazing love story with these characters in the endings and openings but the love stories never happen. They barely interact.
Side characters like Mu and Murrue have more chemistry and development together. Kira and Lacus barely talk. Hell, he has more meaningful discussions with fucking Athrun. How did these pairs get so goddamn popular in japan?
>Hell, he has more meaningful discussions with fucking Athrun.
What do you expect?
Women are incapable of understanding deep bonds of friendship between two individuals.
Seriously, ask ANY female what they think Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World is about.
>instead of just repeating shit people made up, how about I exaggerate it until it's completely laughable
Meanwhile in the real world SEED toy sales accounted for 1/3 of all Gundam sales in 2003 and DVDs were worth barely more than a third that much.

Yeah, that was pretty surprising, it's like Fukuda was trying to sell something with those OP/ED and tell something completely different in the show itself.
>How did these pairs get so goddamn popular in japan?
Japan is some sort of pocket Bizarro dimension.
What's worse is that Athrun and Cagali don't even end up together. And even worse is that according to Morosawa it's because Cagali is a world noble and can't marry Athrun or some weird crap like that which makes no sense.
Forgetting if true, but given that Cosmic Era was to be Universal Century for 21st Century audiences, aside from Kira = Amuro, who are Athrun, Cagalli, and Lacus supposed to stand in for again?
I remember this rumor that cagalli was shat on so badly in destiny was due jealousy of morosawa, who thought her voice actress was having an affair with fukuda or some shit.
there was also something about her va not wanting to reprise her role in anything after that and iirc there was this srw game in which cagalli's lines were used from a previous game or weren't dubbed.
then again, this was over ten years ago, so I might be remembering wrong
