Gundam Wing can be credited with garnering new fans to anime during the 90s boom, where a great deal of titles were imported to the west. It was also responsible for popularizing the Gundam franchise to western audiences as well. With that being said a great deal of nostalgic value can be associated with the title which can often lead to many praising it without proper pretext. While Gundam Wing's production values have certainly stand the test of time the script on the other hand was not so fortunate. Overwrought with needless plot manipulation, contrived idealistic monologues and 1 dimensional archetypes, the way everything is read more

Gundam Wing enjoys a hefty helping of popularity in the eyes of western otaku alongside with its brother, Gundam SEED (whether this is a pro or not, is up to the viewer). Wing can owe its success to one of many things. It began its American broadcast just as anime was starting to peak to the next generation, a large and somewhat epic plot contrasting many simple episodic American cartoons or, Wing could simply owe its success to the bad assery of Wing Zero (say what you will - those wings trounce 90% of the Gundams made).

Even though the characters tend to have more one-dimensional personalities, it’s used effectively in a way where they can be distinctive and stand out, and serves as a motivation to develop the characters in their own way. All sides of the conflict have characters that have beliefs in why they do what they do, and you can sympathize with them. Certain characters will consistently change because a new revelation or turn of events will unveil that will impact them, and you can say it’s a reality of politics and war which I think is presented in a less complex manner in comparison to Tomino’s Gundams. read more

Overall this is a pretty good series. Granted it's not exactly the best Gundam series, it still holds its own ground. The action is solid with lots of explosions and mobile suits pummeling each other. Also Wing Zero and Epyon have some of the best Non-UC designs I've seen. Also the voice acting and animation are passible for what's provided. That said, the characters and story is better than I expected to be honest.

The overall story stands out from previous entries in the UC by portraying our main heroes as insurgents and emphasizing that people matter more than organization. Sure the earth government has read more

Recommendations

Anime: Full Metal Panic!
Both are heavy into the military type setting where a small organization is trying to prevent large conflict. Overall very similar with the female and male relationship and plot. Full Metal Panic will probably seem like a more relaxed show. Both are good watches and I would recommend them both to anyone with any interest in mobile suits.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Both are about a group of young Gundam pilots part of a secret organisation who take on the forces of the Earth in order to achieve peace. The main difference is that the pilots from Gundam Wing seek to protect their home while the pilots from Gundam 00 seek to eradicate war. 
reportRecommended by Arch-Defender
Anime: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Both are centered around conflicting countries/worlds with deep racial ties (Elevens vs Brittanians, Earth vs Colonies). The main characters are young men and women who are torn between two worlds both morally and on the battlefield, and must deal daily with moral ambiguity. All conflict in both series are mostly settled by mechanical suits and politics is the motive behind every move. 
reportRecommended by the_seventh_l
Anime: After War Gundam X
Both shows have similar plot (Earth vs Colonies) as well as "Freedom fighters" Cast and a group of Gundams as well. Mecha design are almost similar in terms of Gundams and the action is great as well.

Anime: Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito 1 - Yokuryuu wa Maiorita
Both stories involve the battle of freedom in order to seek their homes and both male and female leads are analogously similar. Code Geass: Akito the Exiled has great mecha action like Wing as well as the story involving drama, intense, and suspense which is something different from Gundam Wing but overall both are great shows!

Anime: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Edward Elric and Duo Maxwell are similar. If you've seen the original FMA and/or GW, watch FMA Brotherhood! You'll find some similarities in this show!
