Mobile Suit Abridged: Gundam Wing is the title of Operation Meatier's abridged series based on the anime New Mobile Report Gundam Wing.
MSA:GW is a direct parody with most characters remaining relatively unchanged. While some major plot events are rearranged and altered, the show mostly sticks to the original events from the source material. The series has also spawned a spin-off video series titled "Sowing Discord," at least one of which was intended to be canonical with the main show.

Theme Songs and Eyecatches
MSA:GW uses "Just Communication" by Two-Mix, the theme song for the original show. However, every episode's eyecatch is made individually for that episode with a new cover of the original song every time from episode 2 forward, Grey has also confirmed that the second half of the series the openings will use the same format of every episode is a new cover but using the song Rhythm Emotion also by Two-Mix also used in the second half of the show. The songs used are linked in the end screen of the episode in which they're featured.
They also include their disclaimer within the eyecatch itself via written text, rather than before with spoken word as most abridgers do. It says, "This is a not-for-profit parody. Rights to New Mobile Report: Gundam Wing belong to TV Asahi, Sunrise, Viz Media & Bandai Namco." In the series's first four episodes, however, Viz Media was replaced with "TOKYOPOP" mistakenly.
Next Time On
At the end of every episode, MSA:GW replicates Gundam Wing's next episode preview complete with the song "Code Name Heero Yuy," as used in the original show. These previews, however, are rarely indications of what will actually happen in the following episode, and are instead used as a way to tell isolated punchlines using footage otherwise not in the episode. The "next time on" for episode 7, which used a Discord interface to simulate a conversation among four of the main characters, was what spawned the spin-off "Sowing Discord" videos. This is also included with an april fools prank video called Heero's playlist where Paprika Jack Heero's VA sang popular songs to coinside a joke that Heero would ethier normally Sing during scenes or play music over his PA system. And Finally Grey and Blue started a Bi montly Q&A for operation Meatier but more primarily for OpMeatier's abridged series Mobile Suit Abridged Gundam wing and Dragon Ball Goku Time.
Unlike the original Gundam Wing, in which Heero voiced every preview, each of MSA:GW's episodes' "next time on" segments is narrated by a different character. Currently, the characters who have voiced a "next time on" are:
- Episode 1: Relena
- Episode 2: Heero
- Episode 3: Duo
- Episode 4: Trowa
- Episode 5: General Septum
- Episode 6: Quatre
- Episode 7: Wufei
- Episode 8: Zechs
- Episode 9: Treize
Operation Meatier's TIBA entry and season one announcement video also featured "next time on" segments, both voiced by Heero.
