Cast reunites for two new stories
Believe it or not, it's been 20 years since this banger first dropped, and we're both excited about the anniversary and terrified about where the time has gone.
Digiko, Puchiko, and Rabi~en~Rose originally starred in their own manga series in 1998, as mascots for Broccoli's Gamers shops. One year later, they got their first anime series. Since then there have been multiple manga, TV series, OVAs, and a film, many taking place in their own alternate universes and occasionally retconning each other.
Fresh off the celebration of the manga's 20th anniversary, Broccoli is pushing on to celebrate 20 years of Di Gi Charat anime in 2019. The original cast has reunited to release a pair of audio drama CDs.
The first of the two CDs will see Asami Sanada, Miyuki Sawashiro, and Kyoko Hikami returning as the main trio of the series. The second focuses on their rival Piyoko (played by Megumi Hayashibara) and the Black Gema Gema Gang.
Both CDs go on sake February 27.
