Mobile Suit Gundam Wing is an anime science fiction drama series which takes place outside of Gundam continuity, but is loosely based around Mobile Suit Gundam. Following an altercation between the United Earth Sphere Alliance and outlying space colonies which ended in the death of a revolutionary pacifist, rogue scientists in the Organization of Zodiac send five young boys to Earth in advanced Mobile Suits to destroy the organization once and for all.

Though the series is one of the "alternate universe" Gundam series, it was the first in the franchise to be licensed and dubbed for American audiences. The series debuted in the United States on March 6, 2000. It was heavily edited to remove all blood, foul language and references to death for broadcast on Cartoon Network in the daytime and shown uncut late at night during "Toonami: Midnight Run." The unedited version is significant because it was the first time that Cartoon Network had ever shown uncut anime. Because of its popularity, the series also spawned several OVAs, including Endless Waltz.
