I've only been able to see Gundam Wing,.....and read nearlly all of their manga's too, which is a must for GW fans,.....no really, go out and buy them!
Is G Gundam as good as Wing? Then I might try and find some anime of it,......they were going to show it here in Britain over the Cartoon Network channel,....but they always whimp out and don't do so,......and I've heard no news of it being shown on Toonami aswell.
*Regina blushes* Heh,.....I adore Gundam but can't get any decent other series of it. Plus there's supposed to be 2 movies Gundam 0080, and 0083,.....if I remember correctly (which I think I got wrong there huh.) but yet again, fail to find it.
Hmm,.....if you like mecha's watch Zone of the Enders, now thats a great series!
Zone of the enders: Idolo,...which is a movie pretaining to events before the next series and before the games (Zone of the Enders, and Zone of the Enders: The Second Runner.) which is a very touching and beautiful piece of work, and a big fave of mine,.....probabaly because I've been obsessed with the game for years.
The next is:
Zone of the Enders: Dolores i
But I've only got the first 5 episodes at the moment,....but have ordered the next 5. It's quite funny at times,....and the orbital frame Dolores is so Kawaii,...she makes funny noises whilst flying at times and roams around like a child,.....I just want to give her a huge hug. But it can be very touching also,....as it gets quite serious in later episodes so I'm told, and episode 5 was so heartbreaking,.........but I don't want to spoil it for anyone wanting to get the anime.
Gyah,....sorry for the long post I'll say some more after about GW.

Which is your fave Gundam Wing character?
I'd have to say,.......Wufei and Heero. Two great characters,....but I only liked Wufei after reading the manga's as you then are able to understand why he acts that way,...he doesn't like conflict, he likes peace and is very intellectual, and was even married! His past is so touching, and shows why he acts the way he does,......he actually does look up to female fighters,....he just acts ignorant because of what happen years ago, and can't express his anger and frustration in a understandable form,.....thus he just calls them weak and helpless to satisfy his own deep hurt.
Personally I don't think the anime did Wufei's character justice,....I would really have liked to see his true nature more, (i.e. his past from the manga) to show other people he's not just a ignorant bruiser,....which is what the producers wanted I think,......just to have a character soley to portray as a battle-hungry know-it-all, who hates women. Don't get me wrong I adore this anime but,......after seeing things in another light via the manga,......it puts a whole new perspective on it.
Well,......that's my view atleast.
Anyways,......what is your fave mecha on Gundam Wing?
Hmm,.....it's hard to choose for me,......you gotta like 'em all except for the cancer and leo's etc of course,....they are a tad bulky and standard issue.
Mobile Fighter G-Gundam and Gundam Wing are the bottom of the barrel in terms of quality in the various Gundam anime. By far, the best storytelling is still the stuff in the original Universal Century Timeline typified by Amuro Ray and Char Aznable.
The Zone of the Enders anime, both Idolo and the Dolores, I series are very well done, though I think the ending is cheesy with a capital C.
