Mobile Suit Gundam Wing is an original series from Sunrise. Masashi Ikeda (Doomed Megalopolis, Inuyasha) and Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, Daily Lives of High School Boys) directed the 1995 series, which features character designs by Shukou Murase (Argento Soma, Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie). Katsuyuki Sumisawa (Kaze no Yojimbo, Yakitate!! Japan) was in charge of series composition for the project.

Right Stuf describes Mobile Suit Gundam Wing as:

Mankind has moved into space. Thousands of people live on giant orbiting space colonies called “Sides.” However, the Earth Government, which rules the colonies, is unjust and cruel. A group of revolutionaries build five robotic weapons called Gundams and plan to send them to Earth to begin their fight for independence. Piloted by five young men, these Gundams carry the colonists’ hopes and dreams of freedom with them as they descend to Earth to begin Operation Meteor!
