I got a feeling that i will write a long long personal rant review for this. I finished yesterday. Been watching it for the past few days, i couldn’t finish it in 2 days though. I wonder because my age is catching up, or i am just busy lol. (yeah right)
The reason i skip to Gundam Wing instead of continue to Victory Gundam, because i am sick of depression. So i want a change of pace. Little did i know.. it really different lol. After you watch UC series, when you watch Gundam Wing, you will feel unbelievable, you began to questioning, are you watching a Gundam show?
But people still consider Gundam Wing as a classic show. Not in my case. I watch it because Relena, kind of my fav character. The first few episode is kinda funny, with all the “coincidence” and the mission thing. To my surprise this series also suffered from inconsistency of the story. After 10 or more episodes, you beginning to wonder what the hell is this show going to? It is so messy, you don’t know who is who anymore. There is too much factions fighting to rule. The Gundams stand positions always changing. You don’t know who is the true antagonist after 25 or more episode. Yet it keeps changing until the last episode. The motivation of the characters is unclear until the last minute. Its too tiring to watch lol. Yet the animation and all is so so, very like able for children viewer. When Gundam traditionally are very political, warfare, drama, tragic etc etc.
The Mobile Suits design are ugly. The Gundams are too many and they have not the same ability and power. Only 3 are upgraded, talking about bias. The Gundams doesn’t have mother ship (Peacemillion comes near the end) They are magically re-supply and recharge after each mission. To many details was not elaborated or explain clearly (you expect us to guess or create our own imagination is it?). And one last complain will be not many people die lol(in fact only 2 people die from all the main cast). I know i want the change of pace, but i never knew this is going to be happy go lucky show.
Oh the Mobile Suit fighting sucks, and to many repetitive. There is no crazy bitch/mutant in this show either (Gundam trademark) Dorothy would be one, but in the end they redeem her as a kind gentle girl (blah).
On the better note. I love love Heero Yuy. I think he probably is my most favorite Gundam Heroes of all… maybe a bit on par with Setsuna F Seiei. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE AMURO AND KAMILLE as well. But maybe because i don’t really relate to their seiyuu, since Hikaru Midorikawa and Mamoru Miyano are from my age related time, so i was drawn in to them. But i love all of them as a character.
So yeah… why i love Heero Yuy? Just look at him, singlet and short tight pants, most of the time, he doesn’t fucking care of what is he wearing and will go “mission” mode and all. Killing anyone and everyone who gets in his way <3 (well not everyone though.. there are too much characters still left alive after the show finished).
My verdict, Gundam Wing is good but…it is not my kind of Gundam (already got brainwashed by UC). That’s all.
