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 »
Duo, Duo Maxwell. I may run and hide, but I'll never tell a lie. Yeah, that's me in a nut shell.

I remember seeing the occasional episode of Gundam Wing on Toonami as a kid, but I never truly watched this program. I was given all the episodes on DVD a few years back and finally got round to watching this at the grand old age of 25. Long story short, I am so glad I did! This show was excellent. The story was deep, and I mean DEEEEEP. Each character had its own back story that we slowly learn about as the series progresses. It made us understand more about the main protagonists of the show, along with the enemies. I really felt as thought I knew each of the main characters by the end and it made us feel for them as they had to carry out their respective missions.
The battles were incredible as well. Truly action-packed. The only thing that grated on me was that the Gundams were technically indestructible, being made of "Gundanium alloy". It is sort of reminiscent of Avatar and "unobtainium". That combined with the fact that the other mobile suits (aside from the main ones) were about as useful as star troopers in Star Wars meant that the battles were always one-sided and predictable. Still, lots of explosions made up for this!
All in all, I would highly recommend this show. I am going to start watching the other Gundam series and see if they are as good (if not, better). I have heard good things and I look forward to them!
