Gundam AGE Opening Theme Performed by Galileo Galilei
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the Japanese rock band Galileo Galilei announced on Sunday that the band's new song "Asu e" (To Tomorrow) will be the opening theme song for the television anime series Mobile Suit Gundam AGE. The series will premiere in Japan on October 9.
The CD for the song, the band's sixth single, will go on sale on December 7, but it will first be available as a ringtone for Japanese mobile phones and as a download (of the television opening edit) for personal computers on November 2. The limited-time version of the CD single will include a Gundam AGE sticker, the television edit of the song, and other extras.
A preview for the anime will air on Japan's MBS/TBS network on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. (4:00 a.m. EDT) during the Blue Exorcist anime series. Galileo Galilei had previously performed the opening theme songs for Ookiku Furikabutte ~Natsu no Taikai-hen~ and Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai. The band also worked on a series of anime shorts within the Monster Rock program on the Space Shower TV music channel last year.
The Gigazine website had listed JAM Project as the performers of the opening theme song.
