Synopsis

In the year After Colony 196, one year after the conclusion of the intergalactic civil war, a state of stasis prevails over the Earth and its colonies. Seeing no further use for their Gundam mobile suits, war heroes Duo Maxwell, Heero Yuy, Trowa Barton, and Quatre Raberba Winner decide to destroy these weapons by launching them into the sun's surface.

Before the Gundam reach their destination, the universal peace is shattered by the emergence of Mariemaia Khushrenada—the only child of the former tyrannical aristocrat Treize. Mariemaia abducts diplomat Relena Peacecraft and announces plans to launch "Operation Meteor," with the intention of posthumously fulfilling Treize's world domination plot.

With the help of former enemy Zechs Marquise and his mobile suit Tallgeese, the heroic pilots must reacquire their mobile suits to wage one final battle against the Khushrenada dynasty, including fighting against their former ally Wufei Chang, now aligning himself with Mariemaia's ambitions.

Two common practices in anime are the super short OVA getting recut and sold as a film version, an OVA or film that looks a generation better than it's original. Endless Waltz is one such example, and however you slice it we're served an entertaining piece of the Gundam franchise.

A sequel to the Wing series that looks six years better in animation even though they're a year apart, giving us an epilogue for our Gundam pilots. Heero still fights for what he believes, Wu Fei still fights for honor, Duo still fights for the people, Quatre is still Quatre, and it turns out ...

ENDLESS WALTZ
The first time I watched Endless Waltz I hadn’t seen WING yet. And while I enjoyed it, something was missing. Now that I have endured WING and rewatched Endless Waltz I know why I felt that way. Endless Waltz provides the history and motivations of the characters, providing the substance WING lacked. It allows me to empathize with the characters, providing an emotional connection to them. It’s very pretty to look at and the animation is crisp and fluid after all these years. My issues with this OVA start with the Gundams designed to sell toys, again. Cool as they look (and they are ...

Mixed Feelings
In some kind of long-term masochistic exercise, I managed to watch all 49 episodes of Gundam Wing. I hated it. It's a near unintelligible series - the storytelling is utterly incompetent, character motivations vacillate wildly, the animation is poor, the drawings lack detail, the dialogue is embarrassing.

Naively, I thought Endless Waltz would be a huge improvement over the television series. I was right in part. The animation is fluid and impressive, the drawings are more detailed, and the Gundam designs are really impressive. The OVA gives the characters some much-needed context, and the OVA clarifies the television show's themes of resistance against hegemony. But it's ...
