We have the details for the first Ghost Game insert song. The song appears in today's episode, which streams outside of Japan in a bit under an hour and a half.


The details, and photo, are from the Digimon TV Twitter & longtime Digimon composer/arranger Cher Watanabe.

Celebrate the first evo🎉
Gammamon evolves into BetalGammamon✨

& I'm excited.
Here's the song info:
First Riders
The rest was noting the credits, which we'll get into just below...


Cher Watanabe did the composition and arrangement. He's done so many for Digimon it'd be hard to list them all, but he's been around since the beginning, doing the arrangement for Butter-Fly, both for EVO, both for With the Will, to even character songs like Super Girl.

The lyrics are from Shoko Omori, who also has done the same for quite a bit of Digimon (Watanabe noted the lyrics for EVO and With the Will were both her, so they teamed up again.)

The song looks to be sung by Yoshimasa Masukura, which we can't find much at the moment. We'll see what we can find later.


No news on a release yet, but a digital single, single, etc. will hopefully be coming soon.


Update- A message from Yoshimasa Masukura:
I sang the insert song "First Riders" in the anime Digimon Ghost Game, that will air every Sunday!

When I was in elementary school I was addicted to Digimon, and now matter how hard I tried to become a Greymon, I trained a Numemon, but I'm honored to participate in the history of the work I watched as a child in the form of a song!

That does appear to be them. Thanks, that clicked a few other things into place.

Decent song, a little lacking compared to the previous season, but it works well enough.

Kind of hard to top the singer who’s done songs for Dragon Ball, previous Digimon series, Super Sentai, and countless other Toei anime and productions tbh.

This song works well, but it doesn’t get my blood pumping yet like Break the Chain in Adventure 2020 or other insert songs used previously. I guess I’ll have to watch more.

I thought this before, but this is a very different feeling Evolution song. It really doesn't get my blood pumping much at all but I do like listening to it as a song.

(oops this is the wrong thread for this comment, my bad)
