To me, Shinn was always one of the main cast but not the main protagonist. Hell, even in the 4"movie" recaps, the narrator is Athrun. Even in the manga the protagonist is Athrun.
But it's still confusing since Shinn's got a lot of screen time as well, plus the games tend to consider him as the center character as well.
They should've either make it like Zeta and make him the god damn protagonist (and a good one but that's a little too much to ask apparently) or a side main-character but something a little clearer than what they did in the anime.
Heck even if we consider Athrun as main protagonist, why is the ending showing Kira vs Durandal? Same thing, they make the special opening when we see the 3main protagonists and Kira is in the middle. It's like they are trying to confuse everyone as to "who the heck is the main protagonist?"
They should've left Kira dead after Shinn's battle, would've been more epic...
Yeah, they'll totally reverse whatever cuts they did to save space just like they added tons of new Seed stuff in this one. Oh wait, they didn't. Much like they didn't cram the game full of Age stuff despite Age nearing the climax of the series when the game was released. Newsflash : This series isn't really a mass appeal series despite the Gundam name.
Frank Zappa is God. Fact. King of Heroes, do you have enough swords?!
Actually SEED and SEED Destiny are still big names and has a very large fanbase. The reason SEED didn't get its cuts reversed in this is due space and the fact that the SEED HD Remaster wasn't finished by than and they wanted to catch the type off 00 Movie before it complete vanished.
Cool...not, still waiting for Gundam X remaster.
Gundam X wasn't very hot in Japan and ith as been far too long. It most likely will never get a remaster.

True,but SEED and Destiny's fame in Japan is mostly due to the characters such as Athrun,, Kira and Lacus. Each of them won an anime grand prix as best male/female character. Hell, Kira won twice and was 3time the runner up and Lacus won 4 times as the best Female Character and got 2nd place several times. Kira and Lacus are unbeatable in this category amongst Gundam characters.
What's so appealing in Kira CE73? I can't really understand....
