I dunno what happened to Gundam Wing here - (I didn't bother watching it) -
but that should give you an idea as to how much the extent of the cutting
could go. It would be more seamless for the US version I believe - but I
believe the Filipinos who did watch it could give you a good indicator.

I think they won't change the music. It's far cheaper to dub over lyrics
than compose a new theme entirely - unless of course it's entirely
unworkable in english.
