With the release of Hiroko Moriguchi’s third Gundam Song Covers album, the Gundam songstress has posted a video compilation with the samples of each track, as well behind the scenes footage of the recordings and music video content.

Moriguchi previously uploaded the music videos for two tracks in the albums: “Tobe! Gundam” (Opening theme to Mobile Suit Gundam) and “Beginning” / with VOJA (Theme song to Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space).

Following her “Gundam Song Covers Night” performance at Gundam Cafe Tokyo Brand Core in Akihabara, Tokyo, Moriguchi announced in December 2021 the release of a third and final album to her popular Gundam Song Covers series. Distributed by Moriguchi’s label King Records, the album released March 9, 2022.

The songstress’s album series has been successful, selling over 200,000 copies with the first Gundam Song Covers awarding Moriguchi the “Planning Prize” at the 61st Japan Record Award and featured in Oricon’s album rankings for daily 2nd place and weekly 3rd place.
