Sunrise has published the third opening and ending sequences for Mobile Suit Gundam THE ORIGIN: Advent of the Red Comet. The third opening theme song is a cover of TM Network’s iconic theme song ” Beyond The Time ~Möbius No Sora o Koete~”, from the 1988 Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack film performed by LUNA SEA. SUGIZO and Miya perform the song “A Red Ray” for the ending theme. Aina the End has been announced as the the fourth featured artist to perform an ending theme song for the series.
