Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: Glory of the Losers (新機動戦記ガンダムW ENDLESS WALTZ: 敗者たちの栄光 Shin Kidō Senki Gundam W ENDLESS WALTZ: Haisha-tachi no Eikō?) is a manga based on the Mobile Suit Gundam Wing anime, featuring a 'more complete' re-telling of the series by incorporating elements from various other side stories. It is currently being serialized in Gundam Ace. Its English release is being published by Vertical Comics (which has also published the English release of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin).

Story

The story follows the plot of the Gundam Wing TV series very closely, incorporating plot elements introduced in the prequel manga, Gundam Wing: Episode Zero, and the concurrently-running photonovel, Frozen Teardrop. Therefore, the manga acts as a retelling of the original animated TV series with all backstory and sidestory plot elements incorporated, as the 'complete' story.

Chapters

Volume 1

  • Episode.01: OPERATION METEOR (PART.01)
    • The year is After Colony 195, and the space colonies began rising up against the oppressive United Earth Sphere Alliance. On the 6th of April, a group of Alliance Space Leos surrounds a rebel hideout in the L2 Colony Cluster. However, an unknown mobile suit emerges from the hideout and easily destroys the Leos. On Earth, Lady Une, an officer of the Organization of the Zodiac, reports the appearance of the unknown mobile suit to Treize Khushrenada, OZ's leader. Treize realizes that the mobile suit is a Gundam, created to carry out Operation Meteor. He then relays the information to Zechs Merquise, an OZ ace pilot. Back in space, Duo Maxwell, the Gundam's pilot, and Professor G, the Gundam's creator, are being pursued by an OZ fleet from the Space Fortress Bulge. Unable to shake their pursuers, Professor G decides that they have no choice but to enlist the help of the Barton Foundation, and plots a course to L2-V08744, Duo's home colony. However, Duo is angered by this, saying that he'd rather die than take part in a massacre.
  • Episode.02: OPERATION METEOR (PART.02)
    • Duo attempts to destroy his Gundam to avoid taking part in a massacre but is prevented by Professor G, who then suggests Duo take the mobile suit to Earth and carry out Operation Meteor his own way. At the same time, on April 7, A.C. 195, four other Gundams are sent to Earth as well; each of their pilots also intending to carry out their own versions of Operation Meteor. Most of the Gundams make it to Earth successfully, but the winged unit sent from the L1 Colony Cluster is intercepted during its descent by Zechs' assault carrier. The Gundam destroys Zechs' support MS with its buster rifle, but Zechs manages to grapple the Gundam with his Mk. IV Leo "Greif" and sink it into the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the other four Gundams make their presence on Earth known as they each begin to attack OZ facilities and squadrons.

During the assault, Zechs uses the Tallgeese to battle Heero. However, Lady Une sets her trap in motion when she threatens to use the recently-captured Space Fortress Bulge to destroy the colonies unless the Gundam pilots surrender (to Zechs and Noin's disgust). Heero's mentor Doctor J responds and agrees to surrender, but refuses to hand over the Gundam he created. Understanding Doctor J's implied order, Heero self-destructs his Gundam; seemingly killing himself as well. Trowa tells Duo and Quatre to retreat as he gathers Heero's body.

Notes

  • The manga began running concurrently with Frozen Teardrop as part of the 15th anniversary celebration of Gundam Wing in Japan.
  • The manga replaces all of Kunio Okawara's Gundam designs from the anime series with the Endless Waltz redesigns by Hajime Katoki (including the original five). It also features a minor redesign of Okawara's Wing Zero (called the Wing Gundam Proto Zero) that is later rebuilt into Katoki's "angel-winged" design. In addition, some of OZ's mobile suits have minorly-altered appearances and names.
