On this episode, we're finally tackling our first over 26 episode series rewatch with 1995's Gundam Wing. This Toonami breakout hit paved the way for Gundam to finally gain a foothold in the US, so we're curious to see how it holds up with our modern sensibilities. Join hosts Dennis, Ed, Karen, Kate, and Garrett along with returning special guest Kristen and brand new special guest Daniel as they talk the first five episodes of Gundam Wing. From Heero's death wish, Relena's death wish, bonding through music, or a popcorn bubblebath, when that Two-Mix song starts, you know you're in for a good time.
