Evangelion tune clouds the song list in Taiko no Tatsujin DS 2

taikods2a.jpgWada Don’s seven happy islands are about to get a dose of depression. The Evangelion theme song, Thesis of a Cruel Angel, joins the list of anime songs featured in Taiko no Tatsujin DS: 7-tsu no Shima no Daibouken. However, Shinji and Rei won’t be making cameos. Unlike some of the Gegege no Kitaro, super deformed Evangelion characters won’t be dancing in the background as you drum away. Goku and Gohan won’t be firing kamehameha during Cha-la Head-Cha-La, one of the Dragon Ball Z introduction songs, either.


I can’t say I’m familiar with all of the songs announced thus far, but I noticed Ikenai Taiyo from Orange Range plus the Aquarion theme on top of all the previously mentioned cameo songs. The video game music selection in Taiko no Tatsujin DS: 7-tsu no Shima no Daibouken is fairly light with only [email protected] songs, Mojipittan (complete with characters in the background) Seven Islands Harmony (the game’s theme) and strangely the Spelunker song.

    Actually unlike the show’s contents/ending, the EVA OP is actually quite uplifting, and misleading.

    Sounds like it’s got tons of great songs, beating the drum to the tunes of the DBZ OP “Cha La Head Cha la” has got to be awesome, that’s a very dear song to me ever since I was a kid. Would love to hear your impression.

  • The first song is Otsuka Ai’s Peach (they also had songs of hers in both Taiko no Tatsujin games for the PSP) and Love So Sweet by Arashi (a Johnny’s boy group).

  • @alice – Ah! Thanks for the info :) without the artists listed I wasn’t sure where those came from.
