Gundam SEED is a 50 episode Japanese animated series within the mecha genre. SEED is the first Gundam series to take place within the Cosmic Era, where humanity is divided between Naturals, hailing from Earth, and Coordinators, hailing from astral colonies. Mankind is further broken up into three political factions, the Naturals' Earth Alliance, the neutral Orb Union of Pacific islanders, and the Coordinators have their own faction. Two major events occur before the series begins: The Bloody Valentine Tragedy, which was a war between Coordinators and the Earth Alliance, followed by a Coordinator counter-offensive that neutralized Earth's nuclear options.
