by Yoshiyuki Tomino, Koichi Tokita, Hajime Yatate. If you are a Gundam Wing Fan this is definately a MUST READ book. The storyline moves quickly but at the same time it describes in detail the different operations and the different characters and how they fit into the story. It does follow a slightly differnt storyline then the animated series, but from some points I believe it did a better job. Again, if you have watched the animated series you absolutely must read this book.

Talk about Gundam Wing #1

This manga is great. Despite it does not follow the anime completely, it's plot and how it is told is still very similar. The action is fast paced, enjoyable and gets right to the point. After reading this it creates alot clearer picture than that the anime might have given. Like I said still enjoyable, but also straight tp the point.
I wanted to find out about the Gundam universe so I pikced up this book. It took me less than an hour to read and never answered any of my questions. For example, what are the colonies like? What kind of culture do they have? What makes them rebel? They live in space stations is as much as I got out of it. What about the Gundams them selves? What kind of limitations do they have? What are they made out of? How does the pilot control one? I found none of that. Do not get me started about the main charactors. What to they like? Why does each fight? Why do they fight for the colonies? Do they have familes? What are their lives like before? I have a vague idea of what they are like by the end of the book, but they are about as shallow as you can get with out just having scenes of Gundams fighting.
Actually that would have been better, just show me the huge machines fighing it out with no charactors at all. It would have worked becouse the artwork is pretty good.
I bought gundam wing 1 so I can judge it for myself after hearing mixed reviews. I must say it is a book I will read and reread over and over again. True it does not follow the amine exactly but it keeps the characters true to the ones we know and love from the amine. Heero is still a jerk, Relena is still annoying, and my favorite character Duo is still the god of death.
I am a big otaku of this series and when I saw this book, I had to get it. The storyline is great and the art is wonderful. It contains some bad languange, but it's not that bad. It moves kind of fast than the TV series. Also, in the back you get a bonus of about over ten pages of funny comic strips about the characters in Gundam W and G Gundam. This is a great series for someone who likes to watch animè.
I love Gundam Wing, now I own the manga!
With the market starting to recognize how much people love manga, titles that would've most likely never have seen the light of day in America several years ago are now appearing in droves. Many of these series are quality titles that truly show how manga is done right, but some of these titles are ones that were released to capitalize on a sudden trend. The three-volume "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" manga is one of the latter group, and while it's not bad, it isn't something a serious manga reader would want to have in his collection.
The "Gundam Wing" manga tells the story that takes place during the 49-episode anime series. However, readers familiar with the series will notice two things: (1) the manga moves at a much faster pace than the anime; and (2) several plot elements have been changed, altered, or omitted. While the second factor isn't too much of a bad thing, the first factor is what really hurts the manga. Scenes that took up several episodes in the anime series suddenly take only a few pages, which removes quite a bit of characterization. In the first volume especially, the story doesn't feel smooth or connected, but more like a plot summary. The story does feel a lot smoother and better developed as the series continues, but the overall impact is hurt by the rushed plot. It also unfortunately makes the "Gundam Wing" manga fan-only publications, as only fans of the series will understand the plot.
In regards to the second factor, the changes and omissions in the story are actually a matter of taste. Some people might not like the idea of having their favorite anime scene cut from the manga, but others might actually like the changes and refreshing look at the series. Of course, omissions and alterations do mean that character appearances and personality developments are altered somewhat, but an open-minded "Gundam Wing" fan might actually enjoy reading a different "version" of the anime series.
Visually, "Gundam Wing" can't be called the most visually-appealing manga on the market today. Characters do look like thier anime counterparts, but not in a detailed kind of way. However, the actual Gundams and all other mobile suits are drawn rather nicely, so fans of the mecha shouldn't be disappointed. If the artwork of the manga had to be called something, I'd say it is slightly above average.
In regards to the translation, "Gundam Wing" unfortunately shows the badside of TOKYOPOP. It's easy to see that the type-like text was written using a machine, and this resulted in some unfortunate spelling errors (ie "Leader" instead of "Lead her", "Berge" instead of "Barge", etc.). And the translation as a whole is sadly mediocre, as it feels stiff and emotionless, showing how little the translators cared about this manga. Why else was Trowa called Noin in the first volume? Because the translators didn't put in the effort to check their own work. Still, if you can stand a bad dub on an anime, then the translation shouldn't be too much of a hindrance.
But the manga does have a really good feature going for it: the "Domon W" strips at the back of each volume. Essentially, these are four-panel strips that use chibi-like representations of the characters of "Gundam Wing" and "G Gundam". Some of these strips are downright hilarious, some of them are completely lame, but they definately bring up the value of the manga volumes.
All in all, "Gundam Wing" cannot be called the best manga out there. It's painfully obvious that TOKYOPOP released the series quickly to capitalize on the booming interest in the then-recently released "Gundam Wing" anime; if they had just paid more attention to the translation, the manga would've been so much better. But as it stands, the three-volume manga series can only be recommended with reservations. If you're looking for good "Gundam Wing" manga, rather try "Episode Zero" or "Blind Target". If you want good manga in general, try "Inu-Yasha", "Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind", or "Battle Angel Alita".
After Colony Year 195..... The tale of five brave young boys during a troubled era..... They have taken it upon themselves to pilot Gundams, enhanced mobile suits renowned for their skill and quality. The five boys, Heero Yuy, Duo Maxwell, Trowa Barton, Quatre Raberba Winner, and Chang Wufei go up against all odds to fight for the justice of their space colonies. Of course, there is always a dark side to war. A physical as well as emotional battle is ahead. 4 stars was all that I allowed for this publication. The font size was sufficiently better in the graphic novel than regular issues....but still presented its problems. The way the translation was handled made the story more emotionless and too quick at times. I still greatly admire the new installment to the ever-growing Gundam Saga, but think that Mixx could have handled this better. *Kudos to the cute closing comic strips.*
