Crunchyroll announced today that they’ve acquired the rights to stream Digimon Adventure tri., the upcoming anime that takes place six years after the events of Digimon Adventure, and it’ll start tomorrow on Friday, November20th.
Here are details on the upcoming anime:
It’s been six years since that summer adventure when Taichi “Tai” Yagami and the rest of the DigiDestined crossed over to the Digital World. And nearly three years have passed since the final battle between Hikari Yagami’s group and BelialVamdemon. As the peaceful days passed by, at some point the gate to the Digital World closed. Not even the DigiDestined know what caused this, and time alone continues to pass.
On one such day, a Kuwagamon suddenly appears in Odaiba. Its rampage leaves the town in ruins, and the people there in turmoil. Taichi happens to catch sight of the Kuwagamon, and he chases after it all by himself in an effort to halt its rampage. But there’s nothing he can do against a Kuwagamon.
"It’s no use… I can’t do anything about this alone…"
Just as the Kuwagamon roars and attacks Taichi, his Digivice begins to emit a bright light…
"Taichi, look how big you’ve grown!"
With the sound of that nostalgic voice, the story once again begins to move in a big way.
The first four episodes of Digimon Adventure tri. will be available starting 7:00am PST on Friday, November 20th in United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. The next chapter of Digimon Adventure tri. will be available sometime during the winter season of 2016.
Additionally, the first film of the six-part anime series of Digimon Adventure tri. screened last month in Japan, and its DVD/Blu-ray will be available next month. For clarification, the series is a six-part OVA with each part being show as a movie every few months in Japanese theaters. The first four episodes is from the first OVA film split into four parts.
