Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Receives Limited Original Soundtrack Vinyl Record
posted on by Amanda Ellard
Even in this digital age, the demand for vinyl records is still high among professionals and audio fans alike, and that fact is no different for anime fans' demand for a favorite series' soundtrack. That's why the complete, limited-edition vinyl record of the jazzy original soundtrack for Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt went on sale at the Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky screening events that started on June 25 and will continue for two weeks in 15 select theaters across Japan.
Shingo Tamagawa, animation director for episode #2, illustrated the original soundtrack's jacket. The cover also includes a detailed line drawing on the opposite side. The vinyl retails for 4,630 yen (about US$45) by Sony Music Artists and TABOO.
Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky is a special director's cut edition movie compilation of the four Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt web anime episodes. The 70-minute film includes newly-produced footage that was not included in the web edition. The first press limited "Complete Edition" DVD and Blu-ray Disc was also sold at the screenings along with other attendance bonuses and special goods. The regular edition DVD and Blu-ray Disc will hit the stores on July 29.
