    Wonder what the small surprise is after the partners become Champion?

    Just found out about the new series and I am pissed.

    That Adventures circlejerk starts to get as annoying as the Kanto nostalgia wankfest in Pokemon.

    I already found Digimon tri bad, not speaking of how bad Adventures and 02 were in generell. At least that could mean they could rewrite 02 and fix Hikari's wasted potential with the dark ocean thing, but if this is an entirely new story, then I can't see why they had to use the Adventures characters in there.

    I was a fan of Appmon and I would've prefered a kind of sequel story to that than whatever we got right now.

    You know what made Digimon interesting? The Internet was still young back in 1999, still a frontier. You let your imagination run wild, and you wondered what exactly the World Wide Web really was, what it could look like. The idea of a "Digital World" meant anything goes, but it also meant opening the possibilities of another world that lay just beyond our computer screens, beyond the circuits and chips.

    2020 Internet is different compared to 1999 Internet. Who's to say the idea of a "Digital World" works better in 2020? How will it have evolved, and is it just as dangerous, or has there been too much kiddie-proofing? At least with Appmon, while not a new idea, per se, it was still a fresh idea in adapting Digimon's quantum sea into a mobile world compared to Adventures' and Tamers' computer world.

    If they can't bring themselves to be as imaginative as they were 20 years ago in making this "new" Digital World look like how it would be in modern time, then what even is the point?

    Ah Digimon Adventures. I remember watching this on Jetex(?) all the time as a little kid. What fun!

    Now in 2020 they’re remaking this and I’m wondering why they’re using the exact same artstyle from 1999. You can at least change that!

    After this many near-consecutive posts calling it “Adventures”, it needs to be said:

    Digimon Adventure. Singular. Only one adventure.

    This is the next project the Digimon franchise is going to be working on. The video is coming from the official Bandai YouTube channel.

    A well made trailer kind of like the ones that Pokemon do recently with real-life settings and CGI Pokemon. But I think its supposed to showcase the Digimon brand of today, the vitrual pets, video games, the new trading card game, and of course the anime.

    A six-minute prequel short to the upcoming film, starring Sora.

    Fairly delightful. The Crest symbols in their group chat, and Tailmon's ears poking over Hikari's desk while she's in class are making me laugh and I'm not sure why.

    I loved the short! I'm happily surprised that Sora was the focus. She and Biyomon were my favorites when I was a kid. I hope she still gets some action despite deciding not to participate in the battles anymore. I also really like the updated looks. Especially Mimi, TK, Matt, and Kari.

    I had Digimon The Movie vibes from that

    So, they're still continuing with the "Agumon is the same as the one from the first movie?" that Tri established?

    Am I missing something? I thought it was stated they were separate beings, or was there a retcon in the past decade or so?

    Kutie Pie "It is my destiny."

    I don't remember any retconning. Maybe it's possible Agumon had to over time recall those memories because he had to wait for such a long time for Tai that he could've forgotten his experience in the human world. Or it's possible he had lost them/they got scrambled when being reconfigured that were only restored when Meicoomon released the last save file of the Digital World... @_@

    .....did the PSP game ever mention it? I think Tri was taking more cues from the PSP game than the original series itself.

    Kind of excited about the new movie plus the anime reboot looks really awesome as well. Still hoping for a Tamers sequel.

    Eh, no thanks. After Toei's "performance" with Tri, I don't want a Tamer's sequel unless Konaka gets full creative control.

    I think that a Tamers sequel could end up being great with proper writing and direction. I consider the Tamers series to be a masterpiece, so I'd be distraught if Toei were to ruin its legacy with a sloppy sequel.

    Not every story needs a sequel. Tamers' bittersweet ending was perfect for what it was.

    What really needs a sequel is Frontier. If only because I want to see Katsuharu, Teppei, Chiaki, and Tetsuo (the kids who hung out with Angemon) to get purified versions of the Earth, Wood, Metal, and Water Spirits like Koichi did with Lowemon.

    What Frontier needs is an apology for that pathetic excuse of an arc called "Royal Knights." We wasted 9 or 10 episodes dedicated to the cycle of heroes getting butts kicked and area getting eaten until Lucemon shows up. In that time, we could have gotten half of what you said.

    Yes, I'm still salty about this years later.
