Super Condensed Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Review

Back in the early 2000s, Dragon Ball Z helped pave the way for a resurgence in anime popularity among what would eventually be known as the Millennial generation. In addition to many other series and franchises, Gundam Wing was another heavyweight in Toonami's corner, introducing the Gundam franchise to a new audience and quickly becoming a huge ratings success for Cartoon Network. But that was a long time ago...

Nearly 16 years later, one of those fans has now grown into manhood and has rediscovered Gundam Wing, re-watching it with new eyes! Covering the entirety of the 49 episode series, Donovan Morgan Grant goes over the long, confusing, intricate plot of the popular show. Included in his recorded thoughts are new opinions on the central character Heero Yuy, opinions on the handling of the concept of pacifism, and deciphering what is so annoying about Relena Peacecraft. Also included are late-game praise for the music, old friends from the DBZ Ocean Dub and interstitial clips from Toonami's production! DOES THIS SHOW HOLD UP? Download to find out!
