    Wada Kouji Has Passed Away

    Image Thumbnail (custom)

    Wada Kouji, beloved singer and songwriter who has been with the Digimon franchise since Digimon Adventure began has passed away Oricon is reporting.

    It's reported that he passed away due to complications from his various bouts with cancer.

    He passed April 3rd.

    While the funeral was private, there will be a public event in Tokyo later in April.

    His various most well known songs were of course, many themes and insert songs from every single bit of the Digimon franchise. He had songs in every anime series the franchise had, and of course, did new versions of Butter-Fly and Seven for tri. part 2. Fans know he did many other songs, including the themesong to Transformers: Car Robots. I'll let everyone comment on songs themselves rather than me just listing them off.

    He was well known to happily travel to fan conventions around the world when invited.

    He was 42 years old.

    And of course the site was itself named after a Wada Kouji song.

    I know many people likely would have preferred I write a longer news post, with more details about his battle with cancer (which he fought off twice.) I decided to go a bit shorter since over the coming days we are likely going to talk about this a lot, and something a bit shorter would likely be better for the news post.

    Oh man... He had a beautiful voice, and was a great person, he will be missed dearly. Hirari, the second opening of Savers is my favorite of his songs.
