Wada Kouji has passed away on April 3rd at the age of 42. He sang many of the Japanese opening and ending songs, and most recently updated Butter-Fly and Seven for Tri.
This is a really sad day for a lot of Digimon fans. His music has been a integral part of the franchise, even for fans who haven't seen the original series in Japanese.
We're thinking of doing a special memorial episode of the podcast to share memories and celebrate his impact on the community. Do you have any memories of his songs—and how they've affected you—that you want to share? (We'll also play voicemails we get, so you can email a recording to email@example.com or call 913-CALUMON if you're in the US)
