Digimon Gets New Anime, 15th Anniversary Blu-Ray Releases

By admin . August 1, 2014 . 9:58am

15 years ago, today on August 1st, eight children left for summer camp and arrived in the Digital World. Today, a Digimon Adventure 15th Anniversary Event was held in Odaiba with guest stars Kouji Wada, AiM, and voice actresses Chika Sakamoto (Agumon) and Mayumi Yamaguchi (Gabumon), as well as others.

 

At the event, a number of announcements were made. I will try to cover the major ones below.

 

All of this information (except for the last announcement below) can be seen on the Digimon 15th Anniversary page. The site also comes in English.

 

First, a Movie Song Collection CD would be sold with compilations of insert songs from every one of the Digimon movies. Second, Blu-Ray releases of the Digimon Adventure box set as well as a collection of all the movies (from Adventure to Savers) have been announced. The box set will be available in March and will contain the series as well as a new Drama CD.

 

Third, commemoration Digivices (essentially V-Pets) are up for pre-order. The monsters you can raise include all of the original 8 partners. The Digivices come in Taichi and Yamato coloring.

 

 

And finally, a new anime has been announced as well. It will be a direct sequel to Adventure (and consequently Zero Two) and feature Taichi, age 17, in high school. Above is the trailer with English text with the tagline “Now, Again, the adventure evolves.” The anime will premiere Spring of 2015.

 

As you may have noticed, the event was made very accessible to overseas English-speaking fans. The event had come with an English nicovideo site for livestreaming, annd the trailer as well as the official Anniversary page have English versions.

 

In addition,  Netflix has released the first three seasons of Digimon. OK, yes, they were up before, but now, the original Japanese vocals are available with English subtitles. Because of the edited format of the English dub, the English subbed version will be listed as a separate entry.

    Glad their going back to their roots, the original Digimon and cast was by far the best.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Excluding the fact Tai and Matt always had to steal the show in the very last important leg of the adventures (and therefore established that trend with the successors of every season), I agree. The first eight children had a lot going on with their lives.

      • Mnoz

        Data Squad took that to the extreme with only one guy having all the fun for himself.

      • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

        If you think about it, they would’ve gone nowhere without Izzy, lol. They would’ve all been doomed.

        Really, I think TK stole the show, haha.

        • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel
        • AuraGuyChris

          TK was just overly lucky the majority of the villains were weak against darkness and he only possessed the perfect counter.

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            True, true that. Adventure was very much a “Evil Digimon = Dark Digimon” series.

            …Still, though, within that series… ;D

            But you’re right. There was a fairly uneven split of who got screentime. I’m just glad they all got development, though, unlike *cough*season2and5*cough*.

  • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

    So you know, the subbed versions of Digimon have been up on Netflix in the first place! Been months now, but I digress.

    I’m super interested in what this new series will bring! It does feel like they’re trying to push it to be more accessible towards English viewers, maybe with the realization that the biggest fans of it are old enough to know that this was coming out at all, before western mediums could get it. Maybe they’ll be pushing for a worldwide release?

  • maddeath

    there were only seven children at that summer camp. the eighth was at home.

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      True. Though she did get her digivice that day, too.

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    Really hoping this means Digitize will get a localization, too.

    LET ME DREAM!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      all-star rumble is being brought exclusively to US & EU
      there’s a new hope for digimon games

  • Land of Green Pasture

    I’m feeling really old now…

  • Pedro Tavares

    Dem feelings!

  • Tienron

    DIGIMON!DIGITAL MONSTERS! DIGIMON ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!!!

    • AuraGuyChris

      Aaaaaaaaaand just because of this, I prefer the Spanish/Mexican opening songs, which make no effort in translating the English opening and goes with another tune.

      • Lastlight

        The English opening is bad ass tho :(

        • AuraGuyChris

          To me, it sounds a bit too much on the rock side, unlike how the Opening I got to hear.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0IFhpJtlhU

          You be the judge.

          • Lastlight

            Ummmm….let’s just say to each his own

          • Renaldi Saputra

            I really like the latin version of butter-fly, it’s the second best, Cesar Franco FTW

          • JMTHEFOX

            Finally, a Siliconera user who is a fan of Cesar Franco. His duet of Sola Nunca Estras with Anghelo Lopez was awesome sauce and their covers of Dragon Soul are amazing.

        • Spirit Macardi

          It’s so unashamedly cheezy that it ends up being completely awesome x3

      • machomuu

        Well, I see it similarly to pretty much any English dub with a catchy theme. Butterfly, the Japanese theme and the song that the Latino version translates, is fantastic. At the same time, the English theme, apart from being nostalgic, is catchy and fun (and filled with cheese). I don’t really prefer one over the other because they’re both good (or at least effective) themes, albeit for different reasons.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        german version is also good, though

      • Tienron

        aaaaaaaaand because of that i prefer the English one because it was different and everyone i know still love it even though they have heard the japanese one.

    • zuuum

      To be honest the english song isn’t that bad. I do get a “digital feel” while listening to it. But guys listen to one of the fan made English Butterfly versions! The first two that pop up on youtube are amazing!

      Just to get (maybe) an answer to why so many people don’t like the official english opening.

    • Unlimax

      The Arabian version was awesome too :]
      Digimon was and is super popular in the middle east back then
      Edit : darn you video owner for not sharing it >_>
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMLYTBAn8Zw

      And speaking of Digimon ..
      i did a cross-over for Digimon tamers and Devil Survivor 2 op :P
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0f2aaCKwWA

      • Tienron

        wow that sounds really good!!!

  • Aemette

    All these new announcements this week have been awesome! I never imagined they’d do anything of this caliber for their 15th anniversary. I’m excited to see what shenanigans Tai gets into in high school~

    • Renaldi Saputra

      1. new Cyber Sleuth trailer
      2. new anime series
      3. blu-ray digimon adv release
      4. special Drama CD release

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Woah, that #6 bullet. I must have that *__*

        I should grab Omegamon while I’m at it too.

        • Renaldi Saputra
          • MrSirFeatherFang

            WTF, these look amazing!! Amazingly expensive D:

            I think you already know though, I really liked Dianamon’s design.

          • AuraGuyChris

            They’re so amazing that your wallets will cry amazing tears.

          • Revorse

            Goddamn! That Omnimon is amazing.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    honestly I was hoping more for a whole new season, not adventure series sequel/interquel/spin-off

    didn’t really like adv especially adv 02

    but, well. whatever, I’ll keep an eye for it

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      It probably would be a better work as a whole new season, but I won’t deny that this really hit my nostalgia and Digimon luv in the guts. Super effective. x4 damage.

      I can only hope it will … well, have some heart in it rather than a rehash / series for the sake of nostalgia, like the PSP game Adventure.

  • Randy Marsh

    Finally, I’ve been waiting for 13 years for them to continue the Adventure storyline. Hopefully this will be better than the mediocrity that was Digimon Xros Wars.

    • Just Tim

      Like I said in another topic, Japan dismissed XROS Wars as a mecha show under the Digimon name.

      • Spirit Macardi

        And Frontier was just Sentai with Digimon.

        Honestly that’s part of the appeal of Digimon to me: Each series offers something different.

        • Just Tim

          TV Tropes even lists Digimon Adventure under the article “First Installment Wins”.

  • AlteisenX

    The chances of us getting one of the rpgs might’ve gone up a little bit with this. Hopefully the rumble game sells well enough to guarantee it. (Translation costs, yo!)

    • Renaldi Saputra

      well, the trailer that Bamco Europe uploaded on youtube yesterday had got more than 100k views, there must be much hype

  • Elizabeth ‘Ely’ Moreno

    Wait does this mean I can have a Wizardmon digivice or is something else?!
    (Still I won’t be able to have one ;_; )

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      “As you play the game, they will join you as partner Digimon.”

      Actually, I remember seeing Tailmon/Gatomon on the list of partners. She seemed to be a special case because Plotmon/Salamon wasn’t available, yet her Tailmon form was.

      I guess a similar situation can be said for Wizermon?

  • Spirit Macardi

    How the heck are they going to continue on from 02 unless they retcon the ending?

    … Come to think of it, go ahead and do just that. That ending and the “fight” with Myotismon need to be forgotten.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      that’s why I would prefer a whole new season than just adventure sequel/interquel/spin-offs

      I’m afraid the storyline will be kinda disrupted, as what they done with 02

      and I don’t demand much romance (also that NTR) on it

      but, that’s not helped
      most of ppl got hyped coz the very first season was the most popular

      • Just Tim

        KEEP NTR EXCLUSIVE TO PORN AND ARTHURIAN LEGENDS!

        Also, Koushiro/Mimi forever!

    • J_Joestar

      Never Forget.

      • AuraGuyChris

        And Space Dandy made a whole episode about it…

      • Renaldi Saputra

        daisuke?

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          His dream of being the world’s best ramen stand and even got on … Time? magazine for it??

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      Actually, I heard that the ending for 02 was something the creators had come up for before the end of Adventure. That back when Zero Two wasn’t even in the works, this was what they had decided. But then, they decided on a sequel Season 2, so they tacked on the epilogue after adjusting it a bit, to the end of Zero Two.

      Not that I support every job the children have, or that the pairings are perfect or whatever, but that was what I heard from a credible source.

      …Just don’t ask me what the source is because I can’t remember anymore ><

      • Spirit Macardi

        still, no excuse for having Myotismon explode from childen talking about their dream jobs.

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          …That wasn’t part of the epilogue, lol. By epilogue I just meant the “after we grew up” stuff.

          All of THAT with Myotismon … uhm… Yeah, Zero Two shenanigans.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        from what I remembered, when 02 still being made, the staffs were having problems and they were disrupted. One tended to make darker story and one tended to make a heartwarming one, but they didn’t match each others and such things happened. I remember Chiaki Konaka quit the project and was later given by TOEI a whole new series, and that was Digimon Tamers

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          If I remember right, there were two directors and like, 8 or so writers. It was the classic example of “too many chefs in the kitchen.”

          • Renaldi Saputra

            and that’s why it was broken, the ending was also somehow being forced, that’s why I hate 02′s plot
            plotholes everywhere

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            I liked it as a kid because I didn’t see most of the plot holes, but even I detected some of the big ones.

            I can’t even watch it properly now…

            Though really, for me it’s not so much the plot holes so much as the lack of character growth (except Ken). Either way, though, can’t really bring myself to sit through it all minus a few key eps.

          • Christopher Nunes

            I still remember that Dark Ocean one… I was asking myself did I miss an episode where MarineDevimon appeared and was defeated or something? Only to learn that they didn’t do it… such a shame.

            Think they’ll use him in the new series then? 15 years late on it, but hey, finally close the Dark Ocean story with a proper ending.

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            That is a point. This could be an opportunity for them to … tweak, if not fix, some of the stuff they messed up on in Zero Two.

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Random kid: I want to be an artist
      Myotismon: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! *Explodes*

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      I think the Imperialdramon Paladdin Mode movie was a better ending

    • Steven Higgins

      Well, it happens between the Final Fight and the Epilogue so I don’t see the need for a retcon. Takeru could have simply not wrote about that one.

      • Nice Boat Quatro

        Takeru: Man, I was so drunk. The children killing Myotismon?

    • Ridho Siregar

      hell yes, a retcon. Nice for Tai-Sora shippers.

  • raygunner659

    Spring of 2015? Noooo! I’m pretty sure I just nostalgia evolved into Nostalgia Mode.

  • British_Otaku

    Pretty cool, I’ve been sitting on joining the Digimon craze since I was in primary school but been curious since I saw how Re:Digitize Decode looked and heard about Digimon Tamers (one of my favourite writers was on that project).

    I might start with these Bluray sets and if I’m this interested. I can only imagine how hyped a Digimon fan must feel after the PS3/360 announcement and then having this.

  • FivePointedTheStar

    Too much… Digimon in one week… Heart can’t take it…

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      I’ve spent the entire day hyperventilating.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Who’s your favorite Digimon? Mine’s Dorumon, which he starred in an anime as a main character, but Agumon, Veemon, and Guilmon are also my favorites.

  • Souffrir

    Now announce a localization of Digimon Adventure (PSP), Digimon World: Re:Digitize Decode, and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Bamco. DOOOOO EEEEEET.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      we have to support all-star rumble first, if it does well, Bamco’s faith in digimon marketing will be restored just like years ago

      • Souffrir

        But I don’t want All-Star Rumble.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          if you don’t want, you can still support by spreading the news to your friends who like digimon. Who knows there are some that liked rumble arena series or get hyped for that game. You don’t have to insult or suing Bamco for all-star rumble

          this is the only hope for us for seeing further digimon games being localized such as re:digitize decode and cyber sleuth

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          I read it’s highly likely they’re using it as a gauge of interest in the west, so…

          • Souffrir

            I’m sure it is, and it doesn’t sound all that bad, but I don’t play online multiplayer games, and it doesn’t sound like the kind of game my friends would be into.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    oh btw
    SPOILER for the new series: Leomon dies
    :p

    • AuraGuyChris

      If you’re a lion in this series, you WILL die. Good thing no one in the anime series took any of their deaths so badly that the two worlds were going to suffer!

      Wait.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        TOEI hates lion

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          They love him so much, they just want him to suffer.

          …Toei is a yandere?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            I also forgot angemon
            Leomon always die
            Angemon always got bad luck (sometimes die)

          • Just Tim

            Adventure Angemon is considered “broken”, to the point he one-hit killed Phantomon during the Vamdemon/Myostismon arc, let alone episode 52.

    • Nightmesh

      To this day Leomon’s death in Tamers is gets me as upset as when I was a child. I fucking loved that lion!

  • ARMs7777

    Amazing. Never though they would continue the adventure series. I hope the new series is at least as good as the first 3 seasons. Season 5 was ok but I didn’t like 4 and 6 very much.

  • Momo

    The digivices i needs it please!!!!

  • Callonia

    And here, I wrote digimon off as dead series few years ago. Its nice to be wrong. Wargreymon > all others.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      nope
      Alphamon FTW

      • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

        …I just like humble lil Seadramon…

        • Guardian Byakko

          Seraphimon and heaven’s fury or flamedramon and “Fire Rocket”? Hopefully both make it back 2015 along with Angewoman

      • Callonia

        Nope WARGREYMON! It even have an ballerina drill fire attack if I remember correctly from 15 yrs ago xD

        • Renaldi Saputra

          Alphamon had 2 big swords, and can summon digimon spirits from another dimension, called Digitalize of Soul
          Wargreymon exactly loses

          • Primordial Dragon

            Isn’t Alphamon the leader of some of the strongest Digimons?

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            Couldn’t Alphamon stop time and … basically repeat the same instance of time over and over again so it’s like 20 attacks at once?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            yes, with its Alpha In-Force ability

      • Christopher Nunes

        Alphamon is awesome! But why have one favorite Mega? WarGreymon, WarGreymon X, Alphamon, Omnimon, Omnimon X, Gallantmon, Gallantmon X, MetalGarurumon, MetalGarurumon X… too many to count!

    • Just Tim

      Agumon is indeed the franchise mascot, while only HolyAngemon outdoes WarGreymon.

    • ShadowDivz

      I loved Agumon and Wargreymon will always have special place in my heart.

      But Veemon will always be my number one.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I loved Wargreymon, but even limited to Adventure, I can’t give him that. I don’t care if he died, man, Leomon will always be my favorite from Adventure.

      Past that though, Beelzemon >>>

  • Guardian Byakko

    I love the idea of a new sequel to Adventure, but what should I do about my fanfic I was going to type involving tai at age 17?

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      Keep writing it. Since when has canon stopped fandom?

      • Guardian Byakko

        Guess you have a point thanks:)

  • Kufuu

    I’m so happy I’m dying

  • Stephen

    Uh… Netflix has had the original Japanese version with English subs, ever since they released the dubbed version. The only thing that’s changed is they added both the Tamers sub and dub recently-ish/

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      It wasn’t there since they released the dubbed version (because I remember looking), but I will admit that the Netflix news is probably old.

      …Sorry. Got excited ._.

      • Stephen

        Understandably though. New Digimon to cheer about!

        I just remember watching those Adventure subs when they first came out on Netflix. Jeez they were terrible. At least they are now passable, even if they are indecisive about terminology. >_>

        • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

          I’ve heard rumors (just that, mind you) that Netflix is using these subs to judge the interest of subbed anime in the future. Competing with Crunchyroll and all that. I also heard that Netflix did the subs themselves. The poor guys probably never saw an ep of Digimon in their life. I hope they enjoyed it while subbing it, at least, lol.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I’m so happy

    • AuraGuyChris

      That black cat is the cause of his shock, right?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        no. its because of his mom cooking

        • Gemlit

          I thought it was because that that anime took place in 1999 and now Taichi is 17 when he should really be 22 or 23. Of course, that would be assuming Taichi was 8 years old at that time.

          Or was he 13 when Digimon Adventures happened. So then he would be 28?!!

          • Ridho Siregar

            Taichi was 10 in Adventure. That’s in the original japanese version.

          • shafiq95

            They meant 15 years in our time.As in 15 years since the anime released. Since he’s 17 now, the anime will take place in 2006

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      You are my hero.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        :)

    • Just Tim

      Ayumi Miyazaki opened the show and that made staying up at 2:30 AM well worth it.

  • KyoyaHibari

    Wonder if there will be more Blu-Ray releases for the other series and if we will be getting any of that.

  • Suzaku

    Oh, the nostalgia’s firing on all cylinders now.

  • Aaron K Stone

    Damn I remember watching adventure when it came out. It was much more interesting than Pokemon.

  • Steven Higgins

    7. Seven kids left summer camp. Kari was sick and couldn’t go.

    Also, “For all the Digi Destined it the word” and the trailer is in English? they used the English terminology! That means its coming here? Guaranteed!? Like it’ll stream worldwide or something?!!

    And I know it only mentions Taichi, but I hope the other’s appear and ALL of the Digi’s go to Mega like they did in the PSP game. Maybe even somehow make it so that they don’t need to Jogress to get to Ultimate or Mega so Wormmon can finally get a true ultimate as well as a Mega like all the others

    I looked up the Digivice. They really can’t make up their minds about Gatomans Mega, can they? In the first Adventure 02 movie it was Magnadramon. Then in the PsP game it was Ophanimon. Now in the Digivice it’s Magnadramon again? WHICH ONE IS ADVENTURE’S CANON!?

    I really hope they make those available in the US, but if not, at least we get the anime.

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      Sorry, my mistake (again). I had originally written “Chosen Children” but then changed it to try to make it more vague. Unfortunately, I then just slammed on “8″ ._. But yes, you are correct. 7 first, 1 later. Still, Hikari is part of the CCs, so I hope to count her in it, though she went later.

  • Rohan Kishibe

    Damn… This article sucker-punched me right in the nostalgia…

  • http://www.myspace.com/Juan_Rod bluejuan85

    I do pray that we get that blu ray box set here in the US I will buy it no questions asked.

  • Hiro

    Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow wow wow. Goosebumps all over watching the teaser.

    I wouldn’t really care for a new Digimon series (haven’t been keeping up since Frontier), but a new series about Taichi and the gang, all grown up with their original Digis, probably with new songs from Wada Kouji and Maeda Ai? Sign me up, ****ing hyped!

    (Although I know Sora somehow married Yamato and Hikari has a child with an unknown father, please have some Taiora and Takari action. Please. Signed, ex-avid shipper)

    • Just Tim

      Keep NTR (cuckold fetish) exclusive to porn and Arthurian Legends!

      That suggestion will only be killing off Takeru/Hikari!

      I hope Ayumi Miyazaki is a guaranteed lock for the in-show songs.

      • Hiro

        Whoa, hold up, I didn’t mean that kind of action lol! I’m just asking for some romantic interaction, the sweet and innocent kind.

        • Just Tim

          Then root for Koushiro/Mimi to be canon.

    • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

      I really want new AiM/Ai Maeda music. x’D

    • Ridho Siregar

      voted for Taiora. just hoping the ending to be retconned.

    • C_Diamond

      Not into shipping but the epilogue of s02 seems canon.
      Saw this in another topic:
      http://jippy-kandi.tumblr.com/post/51900665766/digimon-creator-speaks-about-sorato-and-taiora-behind
      So yamato and sora as a married couple is legit.

      There was never a tai x sora because friendzone.

    That new trailer made me cry :’)

    • ShadowDivz

      Thank god im not the only one, i was feeling self conscious about my man hood.

  • sd28

    honestly im rather meh about this i would rather have a sequel to either tamers or savers or a prequel to frontier . or even a anime version of the v tamers manga

    I am so excited to hear that the sub is available! I love the dub really, and it’s cool that they still kept parts of the Japanese culture instead of trying to completely whitewash it, but it’s cool to see it accessible as it was. (And a good way to introduce children to other cultures and languages~.)

    A little disappointed that the new anime is a sequel, but I’ll give it a chance. Overall, I’ve liked the Digimon anime and the only one I actually disliked was Xros Wars.

    I also hope we get the BluRay collection here~.

    Proxy shopping what’s the most user friendly one for ordering from p bandai? Preordering that is. I need those digivice!

      I recommend YokattaWeb.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    that video…holy- I cried… I can’t believe that i cried.
    the weird kid who always liked digimon more than pokemon seems to still be here

    • ShadowDivz

      Don’t worry, adulthood will be sure to murder him with responsibility.
      next stop, paying bills!

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        i already pay bills…and live alone and have many responsabilities of the adulthood. and that damn kid is still here

        • ShadowDivz

          He’s immortal.

  • ShadowDivz

    I’m glad im not the only person who cried here.
    I don’t man, just the music and seeing the first generation of digimon… it hit square in the emotinal nads.

    …Fuck, im still crying.
    Where did the time go? Where is that innocent little lad i used to be?
    What happened to the sense of wonder?

    they should make the first gen digimon 2

    Oh the memories

    Dark Ocean arc please.

    It’s always bothered they dropped the entire plotline.

    Actually, I hope they retcon everything post Kaiser arc if they follow 02. I genuinely liked the Kaiser arc but everything after was incredibly wasted potential.

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Easy why. Konaka was the one who wrote that episode and he didn’t work in anything else until Tamers

      • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

        He did do the Demon Corps eps. …Though those went nowhere, too.

        • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

          Ditto. Those group of evil Digimon just came out nowhere, let alone their still untouched origin or background. And why does their leader, Daemon desire Ken’s Dark Seed? Does it have to do something with Milleniumon?

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            Presumably, for a very good reason. … … … that we will never find out about ._.;

            I’m going to assume it has nothing to do with Millie because everything that has to do with Millie is never mentioned in any anime, even in the events that actually DO have to do with Millie :|

          • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

            I mentioned that because of the Wonderswan Digimon Adventure games which has ties to the anime as well with the mentioned evil Digimon as its Main Antagonist. Plus, I believe he made a brief appearance in a flashback in an episode from 02, along with Ryou Akiyama, the protagonist of the Wonderswan Digimon Adventure games as well as part of the cast of Digimon Tamers.

          • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

            That was also what I meant, though. The opportunity to link events in the anime back to Millie was handed to the creators on a silver platter not only in 02, but also in Tamers, and they didn’t take it. It seems like they’re determined to leave things separate with minimal connections (as an encouragement to play the games).

  • Ridho Siregar

    WHHOOAAAHH!! WHHOOOAAAHH!! (out of words)

    EDIT

    Ehm.. ‘rite. Okay. So… maan, after I’ve lost faith in Digimon, with Xros Wars kinda like trying so hard to steal Pokemon and Animal Kaiser fans (you know, those Digimon Hunters concept and all) (sorry, Xros Wars fans). Now I finally got my hopes high up again.

    And I wasn’t even expecting THIS! ADVENTURE!! TAICHI!!! This announcement really got me for sure.

  • James Reilly

    Leomon is gonna get killed off.

    • http://bossrushsociety.co.vu TokenDuelist

      Leomon was already killed off for this series.

      • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

        Who knows? He could get revived again at the start, only to killed off again. Ah, such is the sad fate of the Leomons no matter which anime season they are on…

        But I do hope Myotismon stays dead for good.

  • Snorlaxation

    Something in my eye, hold on…

    Wow, so many memories. I only ever saw Season 1 (my first anime ever), season 2, season 3, and then 4. All very good. After that…. not sure. But I did see a little of whatever season it was (5?) that had Sora’s (Digimon) voice actress, and Axel’s (kingdom Hearts) voice actor.

    After that…no.

    But I would love to see this cast again. kinda Hated the epilogue of S2, but now we’ll see what this does for us.
    I’m so happy.

  • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

    Going back to old school, with a new groove. Sweet~!

  • Solomon_Kano

    Legit tears watching that trailer.

    I haven’t kept up with Digimon since Frontier, but that hit me like a bag of bricks. Nostalgia is a powerful, powerful thing.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Yes. Yes it is.

      Though let me be the one to tell you Digimon Xros Wars was badass. At least in the Japanese dub.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I tried the first few episodes, but it didn’t really grab me. I’ll probably give it another shot someday.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          Very soon you may not get the chance ever again…

          http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/07/28/japanese-government-to-start-anti-animemanga-piracy-operation-next-month

          Get a load of this…

          I think this shows a big disconnect with the world outside of Japan going on…

          • xfullmetal17

            I believe they’re going after the websites that physically host the content there. While I don’t agree with it, that’s why a lot of sites say explicitly “we don’t host the material here”
            Now, that doesn’t mean they can’t ask for the links to be removed, of course…

          • Solomon_Kano

            Funnily enough, the show’s available officially through CR, so that doesn’t really change anything for me, since their cracking down on piracy won’t affect the show.

  • Sentinel

    Quite the nostalgia bomb there. I’ll be curious to see how it turns out.

    Personally speaking, I would have liked a Tamers sequel more. That’s my favorite season of the bunch.

    Seeing Tai come back though has me a tiny bit worried in this gets an English dub, since Joshua Seth retired some time ago.

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      …Puberty? ^^; That’s a good a reason as any for a voice change…?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Tamers had ended perfectly, it doesn’t need any sequel. The last sequel written by Konaka was on the CD Drama Message in the Pakcet and was continued into Digimon Original Story Special With~ 1-4 on the Tamers section

      anw there’s a fanart of their adulthood

    New digimon series! ♥

    Oh, I’m so happy! With any luck, it’ll be pretty good. Hopefully better than 02.

  • WhyWai

    Wow, they are really committed for this anniversary event. I hope they keep thing simple just like original adventure. Those fusion, armor stuff are too flamboyant for my taste..

  • C_Diamond

    I hope to see some new awesome evolutions.

  • Pandafilando

    thank God Tai is gonna be the lead, davis/daisuke was an awful character and leader, i think digimon 02 was nothing but WORFING of the first season characters for no good reason, just like .hack//Dusk.

  • CheeseCake

    Better get started on rewatching the first two seasons,
    I have literally forgotten the entire story. All I seem to remember is the Digivolutions.

  • MistahBlob

    As long as the humans stay as humans and NOT transform into Digimon themselves.. then I’m ok with it.
