Gundam 00 OP and ED
Daybreak’s Bell by L’Arc~en~Ciel
I find this a refreshing break from all the pop-heavy anime music that’s been going around. Gundam has a history of more rock-oriented opening themes, although Gundam Wing and Gundam X had techno themes. Gundam SEED had a couple of jRock opening themes (PRIDE and Our Whereabouts, to name a couple), but most were still jPop songs by Nami Tamaki.
Wana by The Back Horn.
I really like the look of Gundam 00. I don’t think they’ll ever lose the bishie pilots, but the potential seems a lot greater than Gundam SEED. Oh, and that sniper Gundam (Dunamis) looks awesome. I’ll post a review when I get to see the first ep.
