Looking back, this anime is not as good as when I first saw it, I've learned that from watching more anime. However, this anime is still good, especially for fans interested into getting into the mecha genre, or that have never watched a Gundam series.
The setting is interesting, since the anime takes place in both Space and the Earth. It contains plot twist that surprise the viewer out of nowhere, but still this is not enough to stop its main flaw, which is that at some point the plot becomes predictable.
The characters can either be loved or hated. This can be good, except that the hate that one experiences for some of the characters is not one that is beneficial to the story, but one of annoyance. This hampers the story only a little. Overall though the cast of characters contain many interesting ones, some to which one can relate and others one can absolutely not (side note, possible spoilers: the main cast is perfect for yaoi shipping if you are into that kind of thing).
The artistic style of this anime is one that is, to put it in interesting words, 90's. When you see this series, you say to yourself "oh, that looks from the 90's". This is good because in my opinion, the 90's had some of the best anime that was exported from Japan into Latin America, the U.S., and Europe. The mech design is really good, some are extravagant, some are simple, and some are plain down cool.
Overall, Mobiles Suit Gundam Wing can be enjoyed for anime fans that are just beginning to get into the mecha genre, the story is somewhat original, though not that much. This anime is good and was enjoyed by many who first saw it toonami back in the day. read more
