Opening theme to the PlayStation 2 & GameCube game Battle Stadium D.O.N

Hironobu Kageyama, Hiroshi Kitadani

Translator’s Note:
This song was used in the Dragon Ball / One Piece / Naruto crossover game Battle Stadium D.O.N, partnering Dragon Ball Z stalwart Hironobu Kageyama with iconic One Piece singer Hiroshi Kitadani (of the opening theme “We Are!”, and more recently, “We Go!”). (As Naruto relies exclusively on commercial tie-ups with mainstream artists, it had no one to represent the series musically for this game.)

As this song (along with its lyrics) was never officially released outside the game, what follows has been transcribed by ear. Information on its composer and lyricist was taken from Hiroshi Kitadani’s official web site. We welcome any additions or corrections from individuals close to the production.
