2017 is almost over!


The year is almost over and 2017 has generally been recognized as the 100th Anniversary of Anime (you may remember a number of polls NHK did earlier in the year for that reason.)

With the year almost over a short film/video called Anime Next 100, featuring clips from 122 different anime has been released and Digimon Adventure is included. No doubt there are other favorites people will recognize.


As for the music...

The song in the video, "Those With Wings ~Not an Angel Just a Dreamer~", is a song sung by 23 different popular anime singers/VAs (there are actually more than 23 since in a few cases they count groups as singular.)

For Digimon fans, there are a few noticeable appearances among the singers...
Kenichi Suzumura (Kouichi in Frontier)
Mimori Suzuko (Sora in tri.)
Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Rei in Appmon)
JAM Project (many members of the group were friends with Wada Kouji and would often appear on stage with him, perhaps most notably Masaaki Endou.)



There is also a short clip of the song being recorded.


Those With Wings ~Not an Angel Just a Dreamer~ is available on CD with a music video DVD for 1,620 yen (MSRP) at Amazon Japan. (The music video is a video of the song, not Anime Next 100.)



Thanks to shin for translations

That's pretty awesome.

It's weird to think that anime is 100 years old now. Hears hoping that it'll stay strong for another hundred! :)

Those were the ones I recognized. I was suprrised Pokemon was so late, and even then it wasn't the firs season.

Pretty crazy it's been a whole century since Anime began. So much of it has touched our hearts. So here's to another 100!

That is pretty impressive. It's really interesting that it's been 100 years since anime. Who would have thought it was that long. I almost thought it'd be longer. Nice to see Digimon in this.

I was really surprised to see bungou stray dogs on there above other things like yuri on ice, owari no seraph, or even appmon.
