Toei Animation announced today that the ongoing TV anime Digimon Adventure: will start using a new ED theme song "Overseas Highway" from its 39th episode "Jyagamon Potato Jigoku" (Jyagamon Potato Hell) to be aired in Japan on March 7.
The song is composed by the acclaimed vocaloid producer Orangestar ("Asu no Yozora Shoukaihan" and "DAYBREAK FRONTLINE" by IA), and its lyrics are co-written by Orangestar and the song's singer, Wolpis Carter. This is the first time that Orangestar has worked on an anime theme song and co-written the lyrics.
Message from Wolpis Carter:
I'm Wolpis Carter, who wrote some of the lyrics and sang the new ending theme song "Overseas Highway" for Digimon Adventure:. On the the theme of "Let's jump into an unknown place!," I collaborated on the song with Orangestar-san. We started the production from the lyrics, so I think it has become a song with a strong message. I hope you'll listen to it a lot! Also, the song uses very high notes!"
Message from Orangestar:
I'm Orangestar, who wrote some of the lyrics and sang the new ending theme song "Overseas Highway" for Digimon Adventure:. I watched the first Digimon when I was a child, so it was a very strange feeling for me to be writing the song myself. I also had a lot of fun collaborating with Wolpis-san after a long time!
Digimon Adventure:, the reboot of the original Digimon Adventure TV anime in 1999-2000, premiered in Japan on April 5, 2020, and has also been simulcast on Crunchyroll to its members in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, MENA, CIS, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa.
