Agreed, the AGE-FX arc has the second best soundtrack of the series, the first being AGE-2 of course. AGE-1's was shitty (sans the "3 destinies will form history" tune) and the AGE-3 was meh.

I actually thought the first volume was the strongest overall. Volume 2 had some of the strongest single tracks of the show with tracks like Unmei no Saki he, Hajimari no Yokan, and Shukumei, but I feel that the first one captured perfectly the vibe of a space opera that Gundam typically goes for with it's themes and music. As a whole I found the first volume to be a great listen.

I actually felt all but the second were pretty good and more I less up to the standard I've come to expect from Lantis. The issue I had with the second one is a lot of it just sounded like low effort synthesized music while the rest were either rock or orchestral.

I think it's a highly abridged version of Power, or Intervention. One of the main themes for Celestial Being on the first OST at any rate, there are a fair few renditions of it on the first volume.

I made a mistake. Not the first season, but the second. You can hear it in the first episode of the Season 2.

I realized the reason why Kio sucks as of this moment is because unlike flit and asemu, he doesn't have a badass ally named woolf!

That should be G-Sceptor, Track 17 from the third OST.

Hmm, the cover art for the final AGE OST seems to be out.



Found it on VGMdb (http://vgmdb.net/album/35419), Japanese tracklist is there too. Looks nice. I'll admit I was kind of hoping for the final cover to be all three Asuno's with their Gundams in their final forms, but that cover won me over.

Tempting though that is to hit play I still hold bitter memories of absolutely ruining my first impressions of Banshee and Gundam from Unicorn's third OST due to really low quality audio uploads, so I'll pass. It's kind of like the musical way of spoiling something. I'll wait for my copy of the soundtrack or one of the guys who normally do the uploads to Youtube

I will say though, since I've listened to all the previews on CDJapan, and I honestly don't recall a good chunk of them ever being used. Tracks ten (a remix of the AGE-FX theme) and eleven (which sounds a bit like a remix of the Zeydra/Legilis theme) for example.

Honestly from hearing them I can't help but wonder if the final arc was going to be something far grander. It could just be only fractions of the tracks were used though (like track four), but still, makes me wonder what else hit the cutting floor besides those tracks.

The quality is pretty good on that one. Probably my second favourite track, the first being AGE-2's theme.

That was one of the videos that ruined Banshee for me actually. Poor audio quality, a fair amount of crackling with higher notes, and relatively low range to the sounds. Unicorn's music has a lot of amazing tweaks to the sounds and lovely quirks and all up is sublime to listen to, and that video really kills the mood to me, and doesn't properly represent the music.

It's also partly not the Unicorn soundtrack, though those first few tracks are fantastic.


Well, I've listened to AGE Volume 4 enough now to post some general impressions on it. It was a solid soundtrack all up, with more tracks than I was expecting to like. It had all the sorts of tracks one would expect from a final arc of a series, lots of final battle music, death music, and general ominous and mournful music, along with a few ultra cheerful tracks that personally felt out of place to me.

All up it was an entertaining listen, and some of the tracks will be in my favourites playlist for some time to come. As for personal tracks I believe were of note, the obvious Gundam AGE-FX aside there was Innen no Taiketsu, Zeheart no Legilis, Countdown, and Tatakai no Hibuta. and finally Nageki Tabi no Owari.

The highlight for me however, was track 28. As is commonplace with anime soundtracks, they often include the TV size openings, closings, and insert songs, and this was no exception. Track 28 featured the insert song for episode 49, the ballad version of the first ending theme. Not the TV size however, the full six minute song. That made my day when I saw the track time.

Some examples of the songs I listed
Innen no Taketsu which is used as the Asemu vs Zeheart theme.

Tatakai no Hibuta which is used during the fight for La Gramis.

Nageki Tabi no Owari which is played during the ending of the show before the epilogue with Flit's statue.

A solid conclusion to Gundam AGE's soundtrack and in my opinion it left a far better taste in the mouth than the shows finale did. Could have been better though, and it is missing a few tracks from the series which now seem to have met the curse of being unreleased tracks, so I'll give it a solid 7.5 out of 10.

Speaking of the AGE OST 4 soundtrack, what does "Tatakai no Hibuta" translate into? I don't trust the google translation of it, which is "cover for gun barrel of the battle".

Assuming it's: 戦いの火ぶた

Bing translates it as: synchronize

Since it's Gundam, Google's translation kind of fits, but I wouldn't know.

"Hibuta" relates to the flash pan in the fuse mechanisms of early firearms. I guess one can translate it as "Battle Fuse".
