The anime’s music producer Kikuchi Akira held a live event at Zepp DiverCity TOKYO on January 20th called ‘MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM THUNDERBOLT Live OPERATION 01 Rumble & Silence’. During the event, he performed many pop and jazz numbers that the characters Io and Daryl listen to.

Kikuchi was joined on stage by series director Ko Matsuo, Karla Mitchum’s voice actor Sayaka Ohara, and producer Naohiro Ogata. They talked about behind-the-scenes stories like how the new cast were chosen by nomination rather than auditions, and they talked about the creation of the songs. Kikuchi talked about the music of the second season, ‘It’s of much better quality than the first season’s.’ Director Matsuo said, ‘The average age of this studio (the staff of Thunderbolt) is quite high. But everyone put in their best effort to draw Gundam. I’ll do my best so that I can deliver a work that is better than the previous one. Please look forward to it.’
