Wow, this is quite abysmal. Trawling the Code Geass R2 depths of irrationality and nonsense.

Only another twenty episodes to go. >_<

Gundam Wing is one of the first series that got me into anime. I miss Toonami.
My favorites were Trowa and Duo.

One of the best anime i have ever seen. The storyline is very good, not too much sidestories. I like the Deathscythe gundam with Duo piloting it the best, hence the signature :P.

I disliked Gundam Wing entirely.

I finished it since it had epic hype and ended up being thoroughly disappointed.

Most of the fighting is easily summarized. Gundam flies by in front of 3 or more suits, suits then explode for no fucking reason at all. You don't see a slash or a shot, just boom. It's as if the sheer awesomeness of the suit's design blew them up. Hated that so fucking much.

At least the grunts in Gundam 00 put up a fucking fight, and on top of that, when they get raped you get to see why they were raped. The only reason I believe wing was popular was because of how awesome some of the suits were. Deathscythe was cool no matter how you looked at it. The Heavyarms was pathetic and retarded as it runs out of fucking ammo fast and has to piss itself and run EVERYFUCKINGTIME it fought. The scientist that designed the HeavyArms should be fired. Sandrock was meh, it was as if they needed the token arab suit or some shit. The Shenlong gundam was really cool, and the Wing Gundam was decent.

This particular series would hardly make my top 100 list. -.-; It's a hype driven snooze fest.

Gundam Wing is more for the casual anime or hardcore anime fan that hasn't seen Gundam. It's not the best Gundam has to offer (Zeta and 08th MS Team are far superior), but the designs are more flashy, and the story is not as complex.

Yes! This is exactly how I feel except I have to disagree with the favorites. Heero and his Gundam were the most awesome in my opinion although Duo and his gundam were pretty cool too. Trowa was cool except his gundam had a major problem with the ammunition. I think Gundam Wing is a great series to watch if you are watching Gundam Wing for the first time though.

I agree with you. I never saw Wing growing up so I decided to check this anime out because everyone was raving how it was the best in the Gundam series. I got 5 episodes in...and I just couldn't do it anymore. You're right how it just seems like the Gundams appear then the enemy is dead. I don't even have a clear idea who the enemy is supposed to be. There doesn't seem to be any sign of a war going on. Just some...kids, then there's that annoying, unrealistic Relina girl. Uhg, I wouldn't know since I've only seen 5 episodes, but this might be the worst Gundam series out there and I haven't even seen all the Gundam series...I just, KNOW. -__-

Gundam Wing is a good series.

Animations a little old, but it's still worth watching if you haven't seen it.

Duo Maxwell, the God of Death is an amazing character, throughout all anime and not just Gundam.

Wing is my least favorite of the Gundam series. They dropped the normaly deep characters of other Gundams for pretty boys who are about as shallow as a piss on the sidewalk.
