Wada 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 Idolm@ster songs, Mojipittan (complete with characters in the background) Seven Islands Harmony (the game’s theme) and strangely the Spelunker song.
