Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny: Special Edition (機動戦士ガンダムSEED DESTINY スペシャルエディション, Kidō Senshi Gundam Shīdo Desutinī Supesharu Edishon) is Gundam SEED Destiny's counterpart to Gundam SEED: Special Edition. It is a four-part compilation movie.

Overview[edit]

Like the three specials of Gundam SEED, these specials feature new or changed scenes of the TV series. However unlike the TV series, which was told in the points of view of main characters Shinn Asuka and Kira Yamato, the Special Edition was told through the eyes of Athrun Zala, giving the movies a much more neutral point of view. The DVD quartet, as opposed to the series, seems to put much more emphasis on Shinn's romantic relationship with Lunamaria Hawke and much less emphasis on Lunamaria's prior crush on Athrun so that fans[citation needed] could see a much easier transition to Shinn being romantically involved with Stella Loussier to Lunamaria, rather than in the series, which just had it as a sudden occurrence.
