It's Back And Better Than Ever!
by Viktor Bryce
After more than 15 years of it airing on television in North America back in 2000 we can finally relive watching this series in a Remastered Quality. I'll openly say I'm not overly thrilled by the artwork on the chipbox, as compared with Bandai's "Complete Operations". The difference however is this release has the Operation Meteor OVA (sadly Japanese Audio Only), and the Endless Waltz Movie + OVA & other extras. I feel the price tag is justifiable especially considering we get exclusive extras including the New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Frozen Teardrop Picture Drama and cast interviews.
The New Mobile Report Gundam WIng: Frozen Teardrop is based off a novel that takes approximately 20–30 years after the events of the New Mobile Report Gundam Wing television series and Endless Waltz OVA and movie in the new "Mars Century" or "MC" era.
Does anybody know if the movie endless wings is coming out Separately? I don't wish to buy the collector's edition.
Astounding Collection with Premium Content
by Joseph -
An absolute masterpiece. Considering the single Blu-ray collections can go for $100+ for just the discs, this is a no brainer to hop on. Beautiful artwork and excellent contents. This is going to be an amazing release.....now if only I could wait.
Ultra disappointment after waiting so long!
I remember this from Toonami, just amazing to see this getting re-released on blu-ray! Priced very fair! My only issue is the ultra size box makes the collect-ability worthless to me! If I was in the market to replace a bookend or a encyclopedia this would be a great replacement! The reason I & others made the switch to dvd/ blurays was to get away from ULTRA big! Some people like weird/ awkward sized things with tons of coloring books and toys. Wish whoever it is doing the these ulta/premium releases would take a page out of the Funi playbook and just release something that I actually want in my collection like a LE! Both Ultra and standard release are a failure to launch in my eyes, so I guess i'm forced to get the bare-bones addition.
To answer your question...
Yes, the movie and the show can be bought separately
"Operation Meteor" Is On Again!
Gundam Wing (AKA-Gundam W in Japan) is the first Anime GUNDAM Series debut in the U.S. by Cartoon Network (under Toonami) & YTV in Canada. The series aired in 1995 from Japan & two years later in North America. I've manage to obtain the first release on DVD from BANDAI Entertainment (Anime Legends Edition) 10 years ago. I was very excited that RightStuf/Sunrise is rereleasing GW in both DVD/BR format plus in a Collector's Ultra Edition. Highly recommend it that I've got to Pre-Order it ASAP. BTW as for the question from Gundam Meister, yes the Gundam Wing "Endless Waltz" will also be sold separately in DVD/BR format but it will be release later in December.
Finally on blu ray!
by Gerardo Zurita
One of the greatest and first gundam aired in the USA! This Collectors ultra edition is basically that, ultra! People complaining about the size should just get the standard case version and stop complaining, because i think this is ultra awesome and just love how big it is with extras!
Best gundam out of all of them
Yay Gundam and curiosity
I think it's amazing that they are releasing this all-encompassing collection and a Blu-ray format. It is one of Gundams best series and most beloved because it was one of the first to come to the u.s. and introduce us to this culture of anime.
One thing I am curious about in this collection is the quality. Sometimes when they box them up and put them on Blu-ray the quality stays the same but just in a different format and sometimes they actually remaster it so the image is better. However they don't make any mention of it being remastered and so I'm curious about the image quality
An amazing product for an amazing value based off an anime series.
Gundam Wing speaks for itself. It was the series that popularized Gundam Wing in the US, and I'm glad to see its finally making a resurgence here after all these years.
This is a no-brainer for me. Gundam Wing is my favorite series of all time. I have to own this. The price is reasonable, given all that's included (the TV show, the OVA/film, and plenty of extras).
I have nothing else to say. Thank you Bandai, and thank you Rightstuf for making this possible. The mission is finally complete.
An Epic War Saga
Gundam Wing was first released on Japanese TV in 1995. Anti-war media is understandably ubiquitous in Japan after WW 2. That said, I’ve found most of the Gundam anime to be detailed, entertaining and profoundly introspective looks into the consequences of war, both on an individual and a global level.
Character development is one of the shows many strengths, a tall order given the four protagonists and two primary antagonists. In a 49-episode series, it’s not always possible to see the events that made everyone turn out as they did, but the main characters to develop into well-rounded characters. To learn about what happened during their childhoods, you’ll need to buy the Episode Zero manga.
The plot can be rather complex (needlessly so at times, with dozens of events to keep track of), but it’s always an entertaining romp that never slows down.
