Yeah it was my first gundam too.
I think i like it because there were cool characters like
Zechs Merquise, Heero, Duo and Trowa.

Also the music of Two-Mix was always stuck in my head, especially of the ending

Zechs indeed. All he needed was a 6 foot long katana and he'd be sephiroth.

wing had the best looking gundams in my opinion and the mass killing in it was just awesome to me, and the soundtrack to wing was amazing i've got rhythm emotion on my ipod and do homework to it(lol), and you can't deny how awesome some of the characters were after i've rewatched it though i still think it's action is amazing. but some of the story with that relena girl really made me wanna punch her and the outfits they wear also drive me nuts(what's with all the old european clothing on the GIRls too!) . but overall i'd still rewatch the series again cause i loved it's action so much

G was shown and as was the first half of SD Gundam Force.

Other than that only Seed was shown, and was so unpopular with American CN audiences that it was moved to a midnight slot... Seed Destiny wasn't even shown (it was shown in Canada though)

So there's your evidence Tak... Wing, when it was aired, was so popular that it brought Gundam to prominence in the West. On the other hand, Seed faded into obscurity. People who don't download fansubs and don't import and aren't hardcore fans generally don't know anything about Seed, while they would know Wing if they were part of the Gundam craze back in the late 90's.
exactly i was one of those kids who would come home earliar and watch adult swim just to watch gundam wing although i stopped watching after gundam wing ended cause i was a stubborn kid and decided i wouldn't like anything but wing so i never gave anything else a chance until recently. I've recently watched seed and i'll be honest i did enjoy it but many parts of it like the limited power drove me nuts and the fact that i could easily predict everything that was going to happen(come on it was so obvious those two were going to be the first to die)

if i had to pick between seed or wing though i'd definately pick wing

Well, I won't interfere with your right to be mistaken. Nonetheless, you do realize there is about a million arguments against your claim of Heero being the:

True, but thats Wing. You see, at this point, I think Sasuke_Bateman is claiming that Heero is the best pilot out of all Gundam universes.

Oh, and Sasuke_Bateman, awesomest is not a word. You should have just stick with most awesome...

Leave the guy alone it's just opinion and nothing more, and this is the internet where people could use whatever word they like whether it's wrong or not.

I hate Heero if only because he's the epitome of boring character design. I don't think I could ever look at green tank tops the same.

I used to like Wing, but as I got older it got exposed to me as poorly written and too reliant on certain plot devices especially in comparison to some of the better stories like War in the Pocket and Turn A
Spoiler for wing:
There's some nice mech designs but some pretty crappy ones as well. I do give them credit though, for there wasn't an overdose of reused scenes. They were there but they were done rather cleverly and I don't recall seeing the same battle sequence in consecutive episodes. It'd show up again maybe 10 episodes later. It was kept to a minimum

I give WING credit for coming up with good grunt designs though. I loved the Serpent. WING grunts made good distinction between 'Gundams' and your 'common soldier'.

However, as hobbes_fan stated, many things became highly repetitive.

Really, how many times, repetitively, did they wipe out entire population centers deliberately? Gundam Wing has possibly the highest civilian deaths out of the entire Gundam franchise, sometimes entirely pointless.

As for Heero? Get a new wardrobe, man.

Too bad, good excuse though. In the first battle Heero almost killed himself because he was given an order, was he having a bad day? 2nd fight Heero injuried his arm,was he having a bad day? Wing Zero vs Epyon during the fight for the Sanc Kingdom both were fairly even and the last encounter Heero poved himself by defeating Zechs and also destroy the air ship. Not bad huh.

... Because Wing Zero was THE Gundam!!! Remember when Quatre goes into emo mode and blows some colonies in one shot with that bigass Twin Buster Rifle. Heero did the same with the Libra and gazillions of grunts. And then Endless Waltz presented the redesign of the Gundams, being the Wing Zero Custom one of the most memorable Gundams ever.
