Angry Eyes (怒れる瞳 Ikareru Hitomi?) is the Phase-01 of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, it first aired in Japan on October 9, 2004 and in North America on March 9, 2007. The HD Remaster first aired on March 29, 2013.
After the second battle of Jachin Due, with its terrible toll of lives on both sides, the Earth Alliance and ZAFT signed a cease-fire treaty at the ruins of Junius Seven. The treaty, however, did not necessarily resolve the root of the conflict between the Naturals and Coordinators. C.E. 73·10. Cagalli Yula Athha, who has become the Orb representative, is visiting the newly established PLANT “Armory One” of ZAFT at L4 with Athrun Zala (using the pseudonym “Alex Dino” in public). She came to have a secret meeting with Supreme Council Chairman Gilbert Durandal, having concerns about some disturbing movements on both sides that has begun to re-surface. Just then, the alarm blares. Apparently, a mysterious group caused a destructive activity aimed at the launch ceremony of the new battleship “Minerva”. The group then, taking advantage of the confusion, rob the new MS “Gundams” just before their roll-out. Cagalli is at loss with the fight happening again before her eyes. To protect Cagalli, Athrun grabs her and jumps into the cockpit of a “ZAKU Warrior”, and fights with the hijacked 3 Gundams, Chaos, Gaia, and Abyss. But Athrun is cornered by them, outnumbered and excelled in spec. At the last extremity, another new MS jumps in between both parties. It is the Impulse Gundam, piloted by Shin Asuka.
