Gundam Song 145

A huge release for the celebration of Gundam 30th Anniversary, a product with its significance greater than HG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 G30th Ver. and many other Gundam merchandises in my opinion. ^^

Released by GunboyGLOBAL and FlyingDog, "Gundam 30th Anniversary Gundam Song 145" is a set of CDs featuring all the theme songs and inserts from past Gundam animes, OVAs and movies in Super High Material CD(SHM-CD) for much better audio quality (can be played with normal CD player).

A list of 145 songs from the CD set can be seen on Gundamusik.

This CD set will also feature a special 260-page booklet "30 Years Chronicle of Gundam". The content of the special booklet include:

* "Gundam History" - information on important news and development in the world of Gundam between 1979 and 2009.

* "Interview with (Gundam) Music Related Personnel" - Comments from theme song artists.

* "Sunrise Chronicle Gundam Ver." - Exclusive data book recording the history of Gundam from Sunrise. 130 pages in total. Not for sale.

* "Song book" - Complete collection of the lyrics and other information, such as the original release of all the songs.

The illustration on the jacket of the CD set is done by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko-sensei (安彦良和), the character designer and illustrator of the first Gundam anime, and many other subsequent Gundam series including "Gundam UC".

Limited production release. February 24th release, 30,000 Yen (inclusive of tax).
