Wakai Chikara

From Sega Retro


This short article is in need of work. You can help Sega Retro by adding to it.

Wakai Chikara (若い力) which roughly translates as "youthful power" is the official corporate anthem of Sega. Since 1991, new employees of Sega of Japan have been given a CD-ROM containing the theme.

While virtually unknown to the outside world, the theme has made it into the public consciousness in Segagaga and as the outro music to the anime Hi-sCoool! SeHa Girls.

The theme was not invented by Sega, but the lyrics were adapted to better suit the company.
