"Gundam Wing was a breakthrough in Gundam animation and brought even more fans to the Gundam World. Endless Waltz is the conclusion to the 50 episode saga, but can also stand alone without knowing too much about the series. The animation is great and the new gundam style is visually pleasing.
Having the OVA and the Theatrical Version in one is great, there are only a few differences...like the different Mariemaia voice actress you can barely notice, the songs that are moved or removed, but if you're a hardcore fan it's great to watch. The extra scenes and the removing of the "episode"-like qualities in the movie version are excellent and barely even noticeable.
The only confusing part is that even in flashbacks dated during and before the origanal 50 episodes contain the NEW gundams...I just like to think they had the gundams updated after the war and ignore the flashbacks lol.
All and all, a GREAT addition to the series. The characters have changed as they would have over a year of peace, and even more character development comes through, essential to a movie based on a series we watched them grow through."

A Must For Gundam Wing Fans!

"All fans of the Gundam Wing series will love this movie. The movies begins one year after the events that took place at the end of the series. Peace has finally been acheived and the gundams are set to be destroyed, but when a new threat emerges, will the five gundam pilots be ready for another war? This special edition version of the movie is awesome. It includes a version of the movie that has extended scenes and different ending clips than the ones shown in the Toonami version. I personally prefer this version because it provides more plot insight."
