Digimon ReArise isn't out yet, but we've been getting more stuff from it lately.



And despite no official date for the game, we already have a release of the theme song!


The Future is Now is the theme song to Digimon ReArise, sung by the band Straightener.

The CD single includes a second 'A side' track along with a remix of an existing song as a third track.

The scans went relatively well and there were no oddities or issues.


The CD was packaged in a CD-Album style case (the normal CD case most people are familiar with.)


The cover for this release is simple artwork of a tesseract, along with the titles of both 'A' tracks. It's very simply, but has an appealing look. When originally announced the cover was much more green with the tesseract appearing very yellow. At some point they switched artwork to be closer to the cream white and blueish color they are using now.



The cover is the front to a small fold out booklet (more like a fold out pamphlet since it's so short.)



It opens to the song lyrics, which is the entire inner contents (minus a tracklist at the bottom right.) Very simple and clean.





The back of the booklet is just various credits.



A scan of the disc itself.




The disc is very clean and is simply the tesseract with a bright greenish yellow background.



Because this was a full CD case, it had some art under the tray which I cracked open.



Art may be a stretch... it's the lyrics to the B-side remix track.





The reverse side of this is the actual back cover of the CD case. It simply features a track list with some basic information.



On the left side of the case was an obi card.



A basic but nice obi. Various information about the release. The reverse of the obi has information to take you to a survey.



The outside of the plastic wrap also had a sticker on it.





The sticker went over the contents of the CD, along with details about the upcoming Straightener Future Dance Tour.

It was scanned twice because the sticker was a smokey color that appeared a different color when looked at with the CD cover behind it. The top image is the sticker with just a white backing, while the bottom is with the CD cover behind it.




There was one bonus item.



A lottery entry sheet to try and get early tickets to the Straightener Future Dance Tour. The entry code has been removed from the scan.





The Future is Now is a fun song with a bit of different energy to it while also being oddly relaxing, and the songs work well as the intro to ReArise when matched with the visuals.
