I liked Gundam Wing because of its story. I really like social commentary and political story lines in anything. Gundam Wing was filled with that. Sure the beginning is really slow, but that's because you're being introduced to like 26 important characters and how they are all connected. You have to sit through the boring stuff to get to the ACTUAL story. The ACTUAL story happens after Zero is introduced and all hell breaks loose. It goes from being a political war to being a very emotional one. With the Wing Zero making you question yourself. Zero almost becomes the enemy versus anyone against the Gundam pilots. It has so many different dimensions to it that even though I have seen it like 10 times all the way through, I am STILL picking up on new things.

Granted it is not my FAVORITE Gundam series...but it is still an amazing series that so many people give up on too early because they don't see the true meaning behind it. It's just such a great series...

BUT that is my opinion :-)

Because Gundam Wing had more squealing fangirls than any other Gundam shows. I don't think older UC Gundams had the same thing. One fact that everybody don't want to hear about: Gundam Seed is better than Wing. In fact it was Seed that makes me to watch older, better Gundam shows.

Gundam math:

Gundam Wing < Gundam Seed < UC Gundams

I like it because it has interesting and believable characters; credible relationships; an intricate, engaging plot; terrific animation, especially for the 1990s, and some d@mn cool mecha. But I'm speaking as an older anime fan who cut her teeth on Macross and Voltron.

With those comments, I wouldn't be surprised if you drop this early.

Also, this is a different Gundam universe. It's not Universal Century.

You should probably take posts like that to this thread, as this one serves a different purpose than reviews.

Oh sorry about that. For some reason I missed it whilst searching for it so I figured this one was the only one.

I like wing because it has cool designs which are not necessary practical.

And it has Treize, smart guy nobody understood.

The story is not as good as the 8th ms team, seed or 0083, but it beats zeta by a mile

I only like Gundam Wing because it was my first.

I was a Gundam virgin until Wing.

Gundam Wing was my first Gundam series too lol. I don't really consider it the worst or the best but I definitely tend to give it extra credit due to nostalgia.

Also despite the plot and character issues, one of my favorite features of the show is how everyone always freaks out as soon as they see a gundam. The fear of Gundams in Gundam Wing is definitely palpable. The enemy freak outs made the show for me.

Gundam wing was shit. The plat makes no sense. Every other episode the characters are switching organizations or pulling a new big bad mobile suit out of their asses. Its just so damn terrible.

because Duo is a Bad MF, He's half johnny blaze, Half Battletech Mercenary, Half nigga, Half Terry Bogard, The womanizer of the team, plus he and Heero are like Beavis and Butthead of Gundam, But Heero is butt-head always kicking duo's ass

and it was my 1st gundam series

here's a good example

lol so it was too complicated for you?

also *plot
also Wing had fewer new mech upgrades compared to the rest of the franchise.

Except Heero: Wing-> Wing Zero and
Zechs: Tallgeese->Epyon->Tallgeese III (->Tallgeese Asspull, if we count FT which we don't xD)

Duo: Deathscythe->Hell and
Wufei: Shenlong->Altron
are more or less just rebuilds/technical upgrades and thus shouldn't count.

Did I miss someone? Either way, Zechs (...typical ) is the only one burning through MS in that show, so no idea what your problem is dude...

Gundam Wing was the first Gundam series for me, so it always has a special place in my heart.

Although I've only seen 3 Gundam series so far (GW, GS, and GSD), I think Heero Yuy was the only hero in a Gundam series that didn't start out as a civilian forced into fighting with a Gundam. He was more of a child soldier, wasn't he? Makes his character more unique. Of course, correct me if I'm wrong.
