It's time for another fun Appmon CD!

Gatchen by SymaG! This new CD features both the second Appmon OP, Gatchen, along with the insert song Be My Light!

These are scans of the Normal Edition of the release.

The embedded files are smaller JPGs from our gallery, so those shouldn't have any bandwidth issues. Click the images for big versions.

The scans went well. I did minimal editing on these and I think everyone came out well. Minus one thing... I had ordered a 6 foot USB cable so that I could set the scanner up more conveniently when I scan. It was only when I went to set it up I realized that the old cable was also 6 feet long... Whoops.

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

The cover (at the top of the article) is a very nice new image of Haru and Gatchmon. Behind them is a motif with elements from a globe, some digital patterns, and clock details. The overall motif works well, but the artwork of Haru and Gatchmon is just fantastic. The logo for Gatchen looking stylistically similar to the Appmon logo is also a nice touch.

The cover is the front to a sheet you can unfold.

It opens to a track list page and lyrics for the songs on the disc.

The back cover of the foldout is credits for the release.

A scan of the disc itself.

The disc itself has a clear label with just minimal elements on it to try and create a pseudo 3d effect with the light reflecting off the disc. While not exact, the general look feels very similiar to the Appmon DVDs.

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

More of the motif from the front cover.

The reverse side of this is the actual back cover of the CD case.

This is the same motif, but with track info and various legal information also listed.

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

Just the expected album title and legal info here. It's nice that they put Haru and Gatchmon on the spine, it adds some flavor. The QR code takes you to SymaG's website.

I had ordered this from CDJapan, so I got a bonus item with it...

A SymaG photo postcard! This is relatively standard key art of SymaG's persona, so it makes sense to use it here. It isn't fancy, but it's a nice bonus.

The release also came with a sheet with information about another SymaG album on it.

The back has information about SymaG's upcoming tour. It included a serial number to enter a raffle for a ticket. The serial number has been removed from the scan.

A sticker was on the outside of the shrinkwrap.

The sticker is just basic information about it having music from Appmon, along with information regarding the tour raffle.

Both Gatchen and Be My Light are very good songs and I've enjoyed listening to them on a loop while I do the work. Both actually remind me quite a bit of prior Digimon music (various beats of Be My Light sound VERY familiar.) The acoustic track, Midnight Smile, is also a very pleasant song (and is shockingly less 'produced' audio wise than I expected.)

I expect this one will be high on the list for Appmon fans.

The normal version of the CD features the same primary 3 tracks as the Limited Edition. The 4th track is Gatchen (Karaoke) on the normal and Be My Light (Karaoke) on the limited.

The scans and breakdown for the limited version of Gatchen can be found here.

Gatchen is still available at CDJapan (Affiliate Links.)

With various Digimon and Appmon stuff coming out, donations would be appreciated so we can make sure we can continue to get Digimon materials to share with everyone.

Now we finally get the lyric for Be My Light.
Also Gatchen is pretty badass looking, more than art of an old man has any right to be.

I believe that was already announced, wasn't it? with 40 tracks? That and character songs are being released next month if I recall correctly
