>get to the part where Mu stops the laser
Why did he have to die /a/?
Because he didn't.
Don't watch SEED DESTINY, because it destroy this development.
Because the writers were too chicken to kill off any of the massively popular main cast members so the supporting cast got slaughtered in their place.
It's okay that was an anti ship laser so it has no effect on a mobile suit
You know Chars's Syndrome?
He didn't, Gundam pilots can survive nuclear explosions in the middle of empty space and survive with minor scars or even unscratched if they main characters.
SEED is shit man,don't waste your time watching it.
