Following up their review of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, the hosts of the Otaku Spirit Animecast jump right into the movie sequel Endless Waltz. Listen in to get their take on this sequel that digs quite a bit into backstory.

As mentioned in the podcast, this copy of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Endless Waltz Blu-ray was provided to us for review by Sunrise and Right Stuf.

The opening of this episode is the OP for Gundam Wing called “Just Communication” by TWO-MIX. The closing for this episode is the ED for Gundam Wing called “It’s Just Love” by Lumi Ohishi.

We hope you all enjoy!

I like Endless Waltz.Probably because of its short length, stellar animation and Hajime Katoki mechanical designs.

I just have to appreciate the fact that finale of the movie/OVA is set in Brussels despite the fact that none of Japanese VA could pronounce the name correctly.

I remember thoroughly enjoying this movie, after anticipating it for so long after seeing the Toonami run of Gundam Wing. It is still good after all this, though it doesn't fix all the problems I see in the TV series.

I really like Endless Waltz back in the day and still probably do. I do wish those mechanical designs for the Gundams were in the actual show instead. Another difference between the OVA and the movie was the insert/ED song itself. The OVA used White Reflection while the movie used Last Impression. I prefer White Reflection over Last Impression myself which is why I was disappointed when you didn't use either song for the podcast itself.

As a bit of trivia, the vocalist for TWO-MIX doesn't voice anyone in Gundam Wing but in a later Gundam series. That series is Gundam 00 which she voices Kati Manequin who also did the voice of the mom in Erased.
