Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, known in Japan as New Mobile Report Gundam Wing  Shin Kidō Senki Gandamu Uingu, is an anime series in the mecha genre, and is one of the alternate universe Gundam series, taking place in the After Colony timeline. It is the second alternate universe in the Gundam media franchise, following Mobile Fighter G Gundam. The plot centers around a war between Earth and its colonies in space; however, in contrast to the Universal Century continuity, the Gundam pilots of Gundam Wing are more closely allied to each other than they are to any particular side in the conflict unfolding around them.

The series aired across Japan on the terrestrial TV Asahi network. The series ran for forty-nine half-hour episodes, beginning on April 7, 1995 and ending on March 29, 1996. Masashi Ikeda was the overall director of the series. Katsuyuki Sumizawa (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers) wrote the scenario for the series and was one of three official script-writers, along with Akemi Omode and Katsuhiko Chiba. Ikeda wrote one script himself and one with Omode and one with Sumizawa. Toshifumi Kawase also wrote three scripts in the latter part of the first half of the series. Kow Otani composed the music. The series was loosely based on the original 1979 series, Mobile Suit Gundam, created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hajime Yatate. Gundam Wing was among the first series in the Gundam franchise (not including OVAs) to be dubbed in English and was aired on Cartoon Network in the United States and briefly in the UK.[2] Since then, the series has also been dubbed into Tagalog, French, Italian, German, Arabic, Spanish, Indonesian, Malay and Portuguese.

Gundam Fillibuster is more like it
When the anime boom hit in the late 90s, this was the first series to get major airtime on cable and it proved to be a hit and bring more Gundam shows over from Japan.  Sadly when those shows hit they didn't last so long since they weren't quite like this show, when the reverse was true, THIS show wasn't like those.      What do I mean, well lets look at it this way:      This show has no major character death, no feel of genuine peril of …

Alternate continuity Gundam tale about guerilla warfare on Earth with 5 young pilots of industructable robot suits. Full of speeches and war efforts to make the show more intellectually refined then it is and it can feel long and drawn out.
