In the future, humanity has constructed several space colonies. But the corrupt Treize and his organization Oz have manipulated the United Earth Sphere Alliance into controlling earth and its colonies with an iron fist. To counteract this extreme measure, rebel colonies launch Operation: Meteor; an attempt to smuggle Mobile Suits made of Gundanium alloy to earth to combat the corruption and free earth and the colonies from Oz's control. One of these "Gundams" is piloted by Heero Yuy, who is shot down and is forced to blend in to enemy society. Now up against social issues with a girl named Relena and Oz and its puppets, Heero must unite with other rebels and save his people. Written by

When Sally Po is introduced, she talks in a high-pitched, almost little girl-like voice. In later episodes, her voice is far more gruff. See more »
So he wants to fight us again, does he? Sounds like this Zechs fellow is one hell of an admirable guy.

This is a great series with a host of complex and interesting characters!
This is a marvellous series with a host of interesting characters:
Heero Yuy: Heero is a very complex soul who had been trained since he was little to be a soldier. Despite his cold demeanour he is capable of feeling emotions such as guilt and compassion.
Duo Maxwell: Out of all the Gundam Pilots he is the most real, despite his horrific he has a cheerful, robust personality.
Trowa Barton: A young man who grew up abused by mercenaries without a name until he took one when he became pilot of Heavyarms.
Quatre Winner: A brilliant tactician who is the son of a VERY wealthy family but also an empath who is warm, caring, friendly and open. A moderating force for his fellow Gundam Pilots. Eventually falls in love with Lucrezia Noin...
Wufei Chang: A tortured soul descended from an ancient line of warriors with a burning sense of justice and a fiery, passionate soul.
Zechs Merquise: A mysterious ace pilot for OZ known as 'The Lightening Count', a complicated man with a tragic past...
Treize Kushrenada: A brilliant man who is a great tactician. A man define by two words chivalry and nobility able to command great loyalty from his followers. A genius at politics and military strategy.
Lady Une: Another complicated soul divided between the split personalities of ruthlessness and compassion but both are defined by loyalty to Treize a strong woman whose strength increases as her personalities mesh.
Lucrezia Noin: A brave, intelligent and beautiful young woman trapped in an obsession with Zechs who will not return her feelings and how the two are not right for each other.
Relena Peacecraft: The worst character of the series a spoiled, deluded, selfish young girl who only serves to get in the way of the Gundam Pilots and who stalks Heero who would not be enamoured of the rich lifestyle she would offer and public attention would another block. She and Heero are not a couple the creator of Gundam Wing said so. Besides there are many other reasons why Heero would have spared her.
Gundam Wing is a brilliant series with a gripping storyline, intereasting characters.
