Many fans who grew up watching anime on Toonami have a special place in their hearts for Gundam Wing, and it's not just because of its captivating storyline, intense action scenes, and the perfect time slot right after school. One major factor is the impressive design of the mobile suits featured in the series. A standout example is the Wing Gundam Zero from the holiday movie finale, Endless Waltz.
