Mobile Suit Gundam Wing is a 49-episode mecha science fiction anime series released by studio Sunrise from 1995 to 1996. It is the sixth series in the Gundam franchise and was written by Katsuyuki Sumizawa and directed by Masashi Ikeda.
Taking place in the distant future year of After Colony 195, the story of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing chronicles a future where mankind has formed space colonies to expand beyond the Earth. To combat Earth’s oppression of the space colonies, five teenage boys are sent to Earth with advanced mobile suits (called Gundams) to strike back as part of “Operation Meteor”.
The plot of the show largely revolves around the five male protagonist Gundam pilots seeking to end the oppressive rule of Earth over the orbital colonies. The story also focuses on the pacifist heiress, Relena Peacecraft, who befriends the boys and seeks to stop the war through political means rather than through violence.
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing was exceptionally popular in the North American region and is, in fact, credited as the series to popularize the entire Gundam franchise with western audiences. It is the first Gundam series to air on American television, where it aired as part of Cartoon Network’s "Toonami" block. The series has spawned numerous manga series, as well as a novel series, a fighting video game, and even a direct sequel anime, Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz.
And so, for today's 236th Temptation Thursdays poll, we shall focus on the Gundams featured throughout the anime in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
