    tri. Character Song Albums Cover Art, Song Previews, & Cast Appearance Events

    We finally have the artwork for the upcoming character song albums!

    Image Thumbnail (custom)

    We got a bunch of info about the albums over the last week, but now we have the art. We've included the tracklists which we found out last week plus previews of all the songs, and a few special details for those in Japan!

    The red version up above is the first print edition.

    Here is the cover for the normal edition.

    Very fun looking coverart. It has a nice oldschool classy feel to it.


    Then we have the tracklist!

    The Digimon art is similar to the art for the kids, but it has more of a Muppet Show vibe to me.


    Grey is the first print edition, green is the standard.

    And here is the tracklist.


    Digimon's Version Tracklist
    01. Butter-Fly ~ tri.Version ~ (Short Size Edition) / Wada Koji
    02. Agumon SUNba / Agumon (Sakamoto Chika) [アグモンSUNba]

    04. Heart wo Sagase (Finding my Heart) / Piyomon (Shigematsu Atori) [ハートを探せ]
    05. Kioku no Kakera (Fragments of Memory) - Tentomon Side- / Tentomon (Sakurai Takahiro) [記憶のカケラ -Tentomon Side-]

    07. You can / Gomamon (Takeuchi Junko)
    08. Daisuki-ism (I love you-ism) / Patamon (Matsumoto Miwa) [だいすきイズム]
    09. Together as one / Tailmon (Tokumitsu Yuka)
    10. Uraomote Crossroad (Head-Tails Crossroad) / Meicoomon (Morishita Yukiko) [ウラオモテ クロスロード]
    11. brave heart ~ tri.Version ~ (Short Size Edition) / Ayumi Miyazaki
    12. Seven ~ tri.Version ~ (Short Size Edition) / Wada Koji


    We have short previews of the Digimon tracks also!



    Many of the tracklists are paired between partners, so looking and listening at the equivalent title on each album can sometimes have a nice surprise to it.



    In addition, if you look at the covers, they are color paired. The DA tri. text on one album uses the main color of the version of the other album it's paired with.



    The first print editions come with a booklet with cast autographs and short comments (different booklet for each album.)

    The albums come out on March 29th.

    The first press versions will be 3,315 yen and the normal will be 3,056 yen.


    Both versions of each album is up for pre-order. (CDJapan Affiliate Links)


    Digimon Adventure Tri Character Songs: Chosen Children Version
    Digimon Adventure Tri Character Songs: Chosen Children Version (First Press Edition)
    Digimon Adventure Tri Character Songs: Digimon Version
    Digimon Adventure Tri Character Songs: Digimon Version (First Press Edition)



    We are taking donations to make sure we can get copies for the site to do proper breakdowns as we always try to do.


    In addition, for those in Japan, buying the album at Animate will get you into a raffle to any number of cast events.

    On May 13th Natsuki Hanae and MAO will be at the Animate Akihabara at 2pm (doors open at 1:30pm) for a talk-show style event until 3pm.

    Aw that's so cute how the partner songs compliment each other! It's nice to be able to preview the tracks too, and without region blocks. I hope because I don't see "Keep On" or any of the other characters (Nishijima, Maki, etc) that there will be another album like this too.

    I wondered it when I first saw the image, but sort of dismissed it as looking for something that wasn't there...


    But now that I've seen a handful of other people wonder about it...

    Are Mimi and Takeru's hats on the cover a 'wink' to Wada Kouji's hats?

    He wore a number of hats with similar designs over the years. It might just be a coincidence... but interesting to wonder about.

    I would say they are a wink to Wada's hats. And if so, tips my hat to them for doing that.

    Yamato/Gabumon's For Me/For You and Jou/Gomamon's I Can't/You Can are absolutely adorable and makes me so happy.

    Updated the images in the newspost with relatively good, much larger, versions of the covers.

    Gabumon's song seriously makes my heart melt... also love the artwork for all of this, too! I usually don't purchase CDs but I think this one is a must!

    Got a chance to listen to them all. As expected, the Digimon's songs are more 'gimmicky' and don't really sound like actual songs anyone would listen to. Exceptions being Gabumon's, Gomamon's, and Meicoomon's, interestingly. Each of those is a decent song, only held back by weak singers (or rather, actors trying to stay in character, they probably sing just fine when they aren't pretending to be digimon). Piyomon's voice is surprisingly good! Her song is kinda trash, though.

    The kids songs are generally stronger, though Mimi's is idol trash and sounds like it belongs on the Digimon's CD next to Patamon's. Taichi's is kinda disappointing. Koushirou's is great, but held back by a weak singer (or a singer trying really hard to stay in character more likely). Hikari's is kinda bland, but otherwise fine.

    Yamato's, Jou's, and Gomamon's singles are shining gems that I think I would actually listen to in public.

    Too bad, none of my favorite characters got good songs.
