Remember that wild looking Gundam anime that had the smoothest jazz soundtrack around? Well, good news—it’s coming to the U.S., and you can watch the first seven minutes of the English dub right here, right now.
A four-episode adaptation of the Yasuo Ohtagaki manga, set in the same timeframe as the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime, Thunderbolt focuses on the rivalry between Federation mobile suit pilot Io Fleming and the Zeon principality’s top sniper, Daryl Lorenz, in a region of space littered with debris from the simmering conflict between the two sides.
Oh, and fabulous space jazz. It’s about that, too.
i’ve listened to that soundtrack a few times while working… and no, i’m really not embarrassed to admit that at all either… but still, not as good as some cowboy bepop sountrack action.
