Storyline

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 redcommander27

Goofs

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 »

Alternate Versions

The version that Cartoon Network shows on its Toonami afternoon segment contains some cuts and changes from the original dub. Enumerated as follows:
  • Most of the blood is removed.
  • "Damn" changed to "darn"/"curse"/"blast"; direct references to "kill" changed to "destroy"/"stop"; "hell" removed (changed variously to "darkness", or "heck").
  • Duo's self referencing as the "God of Death" is changed to the "Great Destroyer".
  • Episode 7 "Scenario for Bloodshed": When General Septem is shot in mid-air, the bullet going through him is not shown.
  • Episode 12 "Bewildered Warriors": When Trowa says he wishes he were more like Heero, he responds regarding the self-destruction of Wing Gundam, "It hurts like hell." This is changed into "It hurts really bad."
  • Episode 17 "Betrayed By Home, Far Away": During an interrogation, Lady Une exasperatedly points a gun at Professor G's head and questions him; this scene is cut.
  • Episode 23 "Duo, God of Death Once Again": Duo says "What B.S.!" when he sees an OZ representative on TV; "B.S." is removed. Also, an interrogation scene where Hilde questions Duo while pointing a gun at him is edited.
  • Episode 25 "Quatre vs. Heero": When Lady Une is shot, the bullet is not shown going through her.
  • Episode 48 "Take-Off Into Confusion": During a swordfighting match, Dorothy runs her fencing foil through Quatre; this is not shown in the cut version. It is made to appear as though Dorothy just scraped him.

Good at first...
28 March 2015 | by jackson-marSee all my reviews

Let me preface this by saying I'm quite a Gundam fan. Now, Gundam Wing is a standalone series following 5 young colony pilots as they try to....? Exactly. Originally operation Meteor was the mission, which had some details I won't spoil, but half way through the series, the motivation is scrapped, the mission becomes unclear, and the pilots give into long art of war-esque speeches and constantly switch sides and act like self righteous brats. For this reason, I prefer the first 15 episodes where there is a clear structure to the last 35. Character development, character development was terrible, some characters changed entirely (for the worse) others became senseless and convoluted and were passed of as deep thinking individuals, but the reality is they were pretentious. The series doesn't have very much action, it is mostly speeches and distant gazes from characters, which in a mech series, bothers me, because Gundam is usually a good balance of story and action. I think that's my biggest criticism, the series portrays itself as something deep and philosophical but under scrutiny, you can see the total nonsensical actions of all the characters, like "I don't know what I'm fighting for, better arbitrarily pick the side I was just fighting against for no reason" Now I understand the writers may have been trying to make a point about war and what becomes of soldiers after they're done fighting, but that's not how it comes off, it just comes off as childish. For nostalgia, it's nice, but objectively, if you, like me, like the whole terrorist Gundam cell, and espionage type stuff, you're much better off watching 00, similar themes that don't come off so ham fisted, MUCH BETTER ACTION (there's much more than 5 fights like in Wing) Better characters etc To return to characters actually, Heero was 1 dimensional (which is explained why in Endless Waltz the movie, but still as your main character it was so dull) Trowa was also 1 dimensional, Quatre pretty one dimensional and repetitive, Duo was just a loudmouth, nothing more, Wu Fei was a senseless braggart, Milliardo/Zechs (AKA char clone) was a solid character, but they ruined him in the second half of the series. Relena was also boring, yes, peace is good, we get it, no need for her idealism and speeches to take up half the episodes. Treize was a decent balance between ideals and actions, he had a lot of potential. ANyways, if you have time, there's better shows, but if you have your heart set, you'll still enjoy it.
