Hello everyone, and welcome to the grand opening of Magic’s DiGiMONMUSiC Database! MagicBox here, and I’m really excited to finally be getting this little project of mine off the ground.
I’ve been wanting to create a complete Digimon Discography for a long, long time. Though it might sound a little silly at first, I truly believe that the original Japanese version of the Digimon franchise (especially the “golden years” of Adventure, Adventure 02, Tamers, and Frontier) has the greatest overall soundtrack of any piece of media I’ve ever seen. From Takanori Arisawa’s brilliant musical score to the plethora of amazing vocal songs performed by Kōji Wada, Ai Maeda, and others, Digimon offers a wealth of pure ear-candy that I have yet to see any other television or film series parallel (animated or otherwise).
The only problem is that there are just SO MANY Digimon music releases. As of this post, there have been nearly 150 individual CDs released under the “DiGiMONMUSiC” branding. It’s nearly impossible to keep track of them all. I’ve seen many Digimon Discoraphies on the internet, but they’re all either 1.) incomplete, 2.) untranslated, 3.) inaccurate, or 4.) all of the above. How is a potential buyer going to know which CDs they should purchase without a comprehensive guide?
This website is one humble fan’s attempt at offering a complete, up-to-date Digimon Discography. I have organized each Digimon CD according to which of the various series it represents (Adventure, Tamers, Frontier, etc.), as well as what type of release any particular CD may be (singles, albums, soundtracks, etc.). I have translated every song/music/track title personally, and each page offers track titles in original Japanese, Rōmaji, and translated English. In addition to all of that, each track is color-coded to represent songs that only appear on certain CDs.
I think that about covers it! Please have fun exploring and leave a comment if you have any questions. Also, don’t be afraid to let me know if I’ve made a typo! Thanks to WordPress for the blog! Now go buy some Digimon CDs!
