Question, should this remain as Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, or should we keep consistency with the other AC/MC works and call this New Mobile Report Gundam Wing?Gaeaman 788 - pilot of the RB-79/FS Ball Full Saber 02:42, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

it ought stay the way it is seeing how that's the way it's displayed in-show. YuriKaslov 04:08, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
But that's the English version of the show. In Japan it was New Mobile Report.Gaeaman 788 - pilot of the RB-79/FS Ball Full Saber 05:22, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Seeing as the Gundams themselves are not considered Mobile Suits, and are in a class all their own (like a few other Alternate Universe series)...It would make sense to rename the page with its Japanese title, but I guess you should also make sure that typing in "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" would redirect you to that same page.

Well then just move the page and leave the redirect behind.
Which reminds me, why were some redirects deleted? Somebody deleted the Leo redirect, which makes absolutely no sense. YuriKaslov 16:33, February 21, 2011 (UTC)
Considering I am the one who had to go and make articles/redirects for a number of the AC properties that didn't have pages yet, I would say that yes, this page should probably also be at New Mobile Report (I believe I actually made a comment on a talk page elsewhere also supporting this). However, I think we should also what other (licensed) series on this wiki are named at. If most series on this wiki are at their Japanese names, then I think it's clear this page should be at its Japanese name as well- but if there isn't consensus on that, then I still other the Japanese name, with a redirect for the English name. I support a policy of "original comes first unless wiki precedent says otherwise", basically. And in regards to the deleted redirects- that's weird, did you try to recreate them?

Author of the anime series's story? Edit

I see that Katsuyuki Sumisawa is listed as the writer (I'm guessing the story), but where is this information coming from? ANN lists him as a "script writer" (one of many) and IMDB lists him as a "series writer" whereas on the main page it lists "story" next to Tomino's name. I haven't seen any site credit Sumisawa as the original author though.

Sumisawa was the HEAD writer, which is why he's listed. As in, he was the lead original writer for the story/script/scenario. Most television projects have several writers, but he was the boss. The only reason Tomino ever gets a credit is because he created Gundam, he had literally nothing to do with Wing.
From his page on ANN:
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (TV) : Series Composition, Script
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (OAV) : Screenplay (eps 1-3)
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Special Edition (movie) : Screenplay
Hopefully that puts your mind to rest. Kit-chan 18:09, May 22, 2012 (UTC)
