CD Japan has a listing for a new CD coming out in Japan 21 December 2005 entitled “Anime No. 1”. Set to include a track from Hironobu Kageyama, it has the “original singers for theme songs to classic animation series” that will “reprise their role to cover their own tracks and celebrate the history of animation”. No word on which Hironobu Kageyama it will contain, but logic dictates that it will be the 2005 version of either “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” or “We Gotta Power!”
I do not know of any other “2005 version” CDs that were released for other shows, but that does not mean they don’t exist. We will be sure to let you know if we are getting another new version of a great song, or if we are just getting one of the sub-par tracks from earlier this year slapped on a new compilation CD.
