    Default Favorite Moments/Episodes in Gundam Wing

    Remember Gundam Wing, it was one of the first few anime series that appear in Toonami? The first Gundam series that was licensed in the US (I think?).

    Remember it was the series with five pretty boys and their Mecha. what a great way to attract girls to Mecha series.

    Anyway, what is your favorite moment or episode in Gundam Wing?

    For me, I have to say the last episode, especially when Heero says "I WILL SURVIVE!!". I can't help but snicker.

    I love Wing, too, but production wasn't the best. Sometime in the middle of the series was supposed to feature the character origins and they had to finish up earlier than expected, because the T.V. showing it decided to cancel early.

    My favorite moment was when Heero first said he was gonna kill Relena.

    Ahh so glad you asked. The first episode of Gundam Wing was the moment I went from being a casual observer of anime to a full fleged Otaku.

    Relina gives Heero an invitation to her birthday party. Everyone claps. Heero tears the invitation into two pieces.

    As he walks past Relina he wipes a tear from her eye and she smiles. "I'll kill you." she whispers in her ear.

    No live action show had this kind of emmotional appeal.

    Oh, I beg to differ, but that's neither here nor there.

    Anyway, Gundam Wing was one I actually never really felt made a jump from this is okay to "whoa, amazing!" like the other Gundam series I've seen (original and Seed - when some of the characters start dying, 00 - episodes 18-25 literally a Wham Episode each time). And Heero just seemed like a jerk to me when he said that, I mean Relena showed no sign she was planning on exposing him, so why the unnecessary threat? He improves soon after (in fact, him and Relena were among the small handful of characters I actually liked at the beginning), but that always bugged me.

    However, my favorite moments were near the ending,
     
    Trieze's death and telling Zechs that he looks forward to seeing him soon
    and in Endless Waltz,
     
    "Roger that" with Heero defeating the bad guys and Relena slapping that girl.
    Also,
     
    Trowa's "goodbye" words to Quatre would have counted, but surviving just annoyed me. I think at least one of the pilots should have died, this is GUNDAM, and I think it should have been Trowa at that moment.
    My name is Kakashi Hatake. What I like....I don't feel like telling you that. My dreams for the future...hmm, never really thought about that. As for my hobbies...well, I have many hobbies.

    With GW being my favorite series, I have a ton of favorite moments and episodes but I'll just share a few.

    My two favorite episodes are "Scenario for Bloodshed" and "Duo, God of Death Once Again". "Scenario for Bloodshed" is definitely my favorite overall because it combines the MS battles, political intrigue and just drama better than any Gundam episode, regardless of series, I've seen. I loved "Duo, God of Death Once Again" because of how wild and crazy Duo mission in the episode was.

    As far as pure moments, the scene where we first see the four other pilots in the first episode sounding off, Heero piloting the Epyon for the first time, Wufei and Duo escaping from the Lunar Base, Duo destroying the Mercurius and Vayeate and of course, Heero blowing up the last block of Libra are among my favorites.

    It's because Heero was trained as an assassin since birth. He doesn't have "emotions" until in the later episodes, so everyone around him is an enemy. And yes, even the innocent-looking girls who wants certain guys to "kill" her.


    As for my favorite scenes, top is the time in the movie compilations, when the music Last Impression starts playing and my man Heero takes off in a shuttle to retrieve Zero. Nostalgic.

    The time when the trio(Trowa Quattre Duo) helps Zechs and Noin fight the Serpents.

    Zechs and Noin fighting the Serpents by themselves(they got guts).


    TV series are:
    Zechs pilots tallgeese for the first time.

    Treize approaches Libra by himself in Tallgeese II(No fear of getting shot down)

    Heero self-destructing while standing in Zero.(No fear of death)

    Milliardo fighting Quattre, Duo, Trowa, and Wuffei in Epyon while controling the mobile dolls simultaneously. (I can picture Kira doing this)

    There are others too that I'm not remembering.
    "I'll kill Zechs. That's my way of saying thanks." -Heero Yuy

    Actually, before Gundam Wing, the original trilogy, 0080, and 0083 were already released on VHS in the U.S. It's just that Gundam Wing was the first Gundam series that made it big.

    My favorite Gundam Wing moment is when Heero fought Zechs in the Heavyarms. And another favorite of mine is when Duo owned the mobile doll versions of the Mercurius and the Vayeate showing how outdated they were compared to the Deathsythe Hell

    -true, but I think that should have been more established around that time, but all we got in the TV series was hints towards the characters' pasts, and finally Endless Waltz shedded some light on the characters' pre-Gundam life. Shame those "flashback" episodes were canned during the TV run, I think they would have definitely improved the series

    -totally forgot that one, loved that moment. The animation was very nice for that scene.

    BTW, I wish they would re-release or make new figures for the Wing characters (not mecha figures, I don't really collect those, though I do want Eva Unit 01 and Gurren Lagann sometime). Me and my friend found and bought a Relena figure that we now "share". But I'd really like to also have some figures of the Gundam pilots, Zechs, Trieze, and Noin.

    That was an awesome scene. It really showed just how good of a pilot and tactician Zechs is.
