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

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.

It's good. It's just not Gundam
28 June 2000 | by Chris BeilbySee all my reviews

Gundam Wing is the first installment of the 20 year old Mobile Suit Gundam franchise to make it to american television. And quite frankly, I think that Cartoon Network could have chosen a better introduction. A the same time, they could have done worse as well.

Gundam Wing tells the story of the five Gundam Pilots, young terrorists sent to Earth from the space colonies to take revenge on the death, ten years earlier, of the leader of the Colonies. In the course of their actions, they discover that their true enemy is the secret society OZ. Over it's 49 episodes, this series takes a convoluted plot, and executes it quite well. >

While the story of Gundam Wing is it's greatest strength, it is also the show's greatest weakness. The simple fact is that anyone who knows Gundam has seen it all before... We saw it in Mobile Suit Gundam (1979) and again in Gundam F91 (1990). In addition, Gundam Wing does something else which is contrary to Gundam. It makes it Superheroic...

When the original Gundam premiered in 1979, it was a landmark series because it was the first show to portray the Mecha as simple fighting machines, like a tank or fighter jet. Prior Mecha shows always showed their machines as characters, mute and unintelligent, but characters nonetheless. Gundam chan ged all that. Unfortunately, by making it's Gundams superheroic Mecha that are invincible, Gundam Wing turns it's back on that.. And ultimately, that's what turns me off of the show...

In other words, It's good, but it's just not Gundam...
