Are you ready for a new Adventure?
Seriously, he should just get a new girl, who fucking cares about Sora anymore
Make up some excuse (Apocalptic-scale Evil about to end the Multi-verse)
Create a plot device that enables time travel/dimension shifting (TARDIS)
And then get everyone together.
The next time though, we need actual interactions between the characters.
Yes those are all good dubs. Unless you've got specific arguments against them?
Redline's is outright better than the JP version. P&S isn't really better or worse, I think both versions are funny for different reasons. You watch the JP version for RRRRRULES and the English version for Garterbelt the Baptist Preacher.
I hope this guy appears as a villain in the show.
He was cheap as shit in the game.
Especially if you didn't have a projectile.
Superior german dub reporting in
Because they've generally been decent with acknowledging the whole canon. Look at how Hunters threw in Daisuke even though time paradox. And because it would be set after the events of 02.
I think the 02 kids will be sidelined at least as much as the Adventure kids were in 02, but I'd be shocked if they wrote them out entirely.
>all these posts about their countries music being best for their dub
>yfw nothing will beat the GOAT OST that was NA The Digimon Movie with the ska, funk and more
It's like these niggas perfectly captured the 90s.
I sure hope Mimi is done with her slut phase.
The abomination that is the US version of the Digimon Movie has the perfect mix of "fuck this shit" and "I can't get this music out of my head" in its soundtrack. I love/hate it.
He's tone dead.
>you'll never get to experience the godtier Latin American dub for the first time again
The first slash of Gokumon's Skull Dance had i-frames, Dramon Killer's animation is a bit long and is also a close range move, at best, you would only make Gokumon flinch before he starts Skull Dance again.
Everyone knows the only way to use WarGreymon is spamming Great Tornado and throws then using Gaia Force.
Man that game sure was fun even if rather unbalanced.
SaintGalgomon was such a shitty character, it was worse than base Terriermon.
>yfw Tamers BDs and Tamers 02 after that
>what the fuck went wrong with T.K. and Hikari
Not enough hormones.
I feel like people overplay how annoying the punching was in savers.
I mean yeah, it was dumb, but it was the sort of dumb you just let slide after a while because you realise it doesn't really get in the way of the rest of the show.
Like the silly trading cards in tamers.
>pls don't be shit
I expect the Digimon fanbase to not be as deluded as the Sailor Moon one this time around. Just have the lowest expectations you can muster and things will be fine.
Why does Butter-Fly always make me feel so empty and sad? When I finished 01 I was crying like a bitch.
>tfw CGI digivolutions
I thought they were ripping off Beast Machines when I was a kid.
Digimon Tamers softsub:
Don't come back until you're done
At least Digimon is Toei's own franchise, so they might actually care about it. Sailor Moon Crystal was doomed ever since the beginning because they couldn't make something that could rival Precure, their very own magical girl franchise.
But it's modern Toei, so I still have extremely low expectations.
15th anniversary BD BOX of the 1st season
Yeah, it aired on Fox kids. I was just confused due to the evolution being in 3DCG and Metal Garurumon looking something straight out of Beast Machines since they were mecanhical animals for transform.
>Gomamon becomes a Plesiosaur at Mega
Not in the PSP game.
>the animation in the first season doesn't hold up well at all
Adventure looks the most shitty during the human world arc.
the game confirms that gomamon would have evolved into this guy
>side characters in the series
>they don't get evolution sequences
It could turn out like the King Gainer BDs but I doubt it. Toei is nowhere near Sunrise.
Alright. I've always heard bad things about 02 and I completely ignored it when it was airing because muh original series so might as well skip it anyway
>Adventure was an early digital paint show and the animation in the first season doesn't hold up well at all.
Remeber those weird ass "zoom" scenes when they were in the air or similar?
Even as a child, I thought those were so awkward as fuck. Probably because I was very accostumed to the traditional 90's style (and the first couple of seasons of Pokemon were like that, so watching that in Digimon felt odd).
Though there were some really good directed Adventure episodes.
As a kid I tried to memorize the various prefix categories and things, and then I gave up.
Some things are simple enough like metal and mega.
What the fuck did War mean exactly?
Which prefix needs more love?
>Remeber those weird ass "zoom" scenes when they were in the air or similar?
Yeah it looks so bad now, Digimon always seem to have this problem in the beginning but got better at it with every new season and of course the shitty early CG. The movies should all hold up well though with proper remastering.
>Though there were some really good directed Adventure episodes.
The Hosada episode of course
>What the fuck did War mean exactly?
It means Dramons go home.
I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, and I don't really like Frontier, but this guy is my favourite of the mega greys.
>Realizing in the scheme of things that Wargreymon is actually a pretty weak Mega and that even his combination into Omegamon isn't that strong since Omegamon is the biggest Jobber of the Royal Knights
I really liked Frontier for some reason
I think I just loved the idea of the kids having a more direct impact on the battles and watching the world just unravel into code whenever they failed
Just replace morgan with a pillow.
I freaked out when that happened.
It's pretty clear that frontier probably emerged because someone in charge got the wrong idea from the matrix evolutions in tamers.
They saw them and thought 'oh now the kids are useful in a fight! Lets make that the focus of the next season!' Completely ignoring how the thing was the culmination of the relationship between partner and mon.
But fair enough, it makes the kids useful in a fight before the season starts throwing megas into the mix. So what if
We combine the concepts?
>It's pretty clear that frontier probably emerged because someone in charge got the wrong idea from the matrix evolutions in tamers.
Probably the only thing in Frontier that messed up the series, in my opinion.
There's a sense of childhood friendship with the digimons that only Digimon 01 and Tamers have managed to get right. Everything else after that simply hasn't been the same.
I'm hoping this can recapture that magic.
Is it still friendship if you cuddle with your Digimon?
The digimon-trainer relationship isn't really vital for my enjoyment. And not every anime has to "have a point". You'll find bonding and comradery in every shounen ever, there was plenty in Tamers aswell.
For me Digimon is going on adventures, fighting monsters and evolving while not being as boring and bland as Pokemon, having an actual plot and all that.
>15 fucking years later, Tai will have his revenge
This is some Monte-Cristo shit right here.
I agree. I still think the other series are good in their own regards but there's a certain magic to Adventure and Tamers. I feel like they capture what I think Digimon is best.
With that said I do like it when Digimon tries doing other things like with Frontier and Xros Wars. And Cyber Sleuth, from the trailers at least feels very much like what I want Digimon to be.
In the meanwhile, I'm just gonna crank-up my nostalgia switch with this album
>Tamers is especially sad when you listen to the Drama CD.
Oh fuck, I didn't know some Drama CD existed.
Will its impact be reduced if I listen to it years after finishing the series?
This is Ruki. It’s Ruki.
Renamon… you’re horrible.
I know it’s not your fault. But you really… you really are horrible. You suddenly turned smaller and went back home… and you said convenient things like, “We’ll see each other again” and—
…Sorry. I know I’m the one who’s saying horrible things. I know. Ever since then… I’ve been feeling like a shell. Every day, it feels like time is going by really slowly. I was simply being single-minded back then, but the time I spent with you strung me up somehow. I don’t know which is better for me now.
Those fights, when my life was put into danger numerous times… To be honest, I don’t feel like I want to do them again. But… then… what should I do? I don’t even feel like playing card fights anymore.
Lately, I’ve been getting along pretty well with Grandma… and Mom… It’s still kinda strange though. It’s not that I don’t like it… I think… But you know, I don’t feel like I’ve just lost my partner Digimon.
I'm watching Tamers right now and there are a lot of inconsistencies. The most obvious is how the fuck Guilmon evolved into Growlmon to carry Takato's friends on his back so they didn't have to walk, when he had been separated from Takato (so no card slash) and Culumon was also god knows where. There's a lot of other shit like that, mostly from episode 30-35 (I haven't gone much further).
Guess I'll post mine as well
I apologize if I have shit tastes
They're just data, there is no need to be sad, they aren't real.
Adventure hit me way harder. Even though they met again with their digimon, the last episode build up was fantastic while Tamers just throw it at the very last minute. Tamers needed another episode just for that.
I only have one Digimon on mine.. I feel bad now.
>yfw Ruki can't get over the trauma of losing Renamon, loses her childlike innocence and assertive personality and enters a lifelong bout of depression.
>yfw her only way of coping is mindlessly going along with her mom's wishes, emulating her style and mannerisms
>yfw Ruki grows up to be an airheaded model/acress like her mom.
After all this year, I still remember the damn lyric
>seraphimon, cherubimon, and lucemon were women in German frontier
Ever since you were gone, I found a small Zone inside your Guilmon Home. I was so happy. Ah, oh yeah, about that small Zone. When I found it, I thought that it could take us back to you guys, and I got really excited. It was a very small Zone, so I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to enter into the Digital World or not, but I believed it could grow bigger. I prepared my things so I could go during the winter vacation.
But then, Yamaki-san also found that Zone…
Yamaki-san, Jian’s dad, and the others worked hard on a boundary… or something… between the Real World and the Digital World… anyway, they made a firewall so that humans wouldn’t be able to cross between the two worlds. Yamaki-san also said that instead of getting bigger, that Zone will just shrink and disappear.
Whelp. My childhood just got destroyed.
My only hope is that they preserve Sorato and utterly hammer "Taichi doesn't like Sora that way" into the audience's faces, just to spite all the annoying Taiorafags who wouldn't shut up about it for 14 years.
You know what would be better? If they smash both of those shit pairings to the ground and just make the best one canon.
In the end, the one who saved Takato and the others was you. That made me so happy! Whenever I feel useless, I remember that time.
I remember that both you and I… we worked really hard.
So… I really do… want to see you again.
[sniffling] I… I hate not being able to see you again!
[voice breaking] Hey… we’ll see each other again… right?
…I—I’m sorry. Stop the recording.
Man, I didn't even think that much of Kenta in the series. But damn.
I'd accept it. They have more interaction with each other than either had with Sora anyways.
Let's kick it up!
To show them all the things that we can do!
Let's kick it up!
And know they're not tomorrow!
Let's kick it up!
'Cause they ain't seen the last of me and you!
Let's kick it up!
Imagine this was real.
Who'd be who (because, you know, they characters wouldn't look much different from this).
>02 cast get to live with their Digimon forever because they beat the bad guy with the power of...it's not even friendship it's just bullshit
>Tamer kids go through hell
>they get nothing
As long as it's full of sexy female digimon I'd be fine with it
Their reward is pain they all share.
A what if is all that keeps them going
Great, now we're forced to see Matt and Sora going all bakapuru in front of Tai.
So nobody Liked Xross wars?
>I live in USA
>didn't grow up with Butter-Fly
>grew up with cheesy dialogue rewrites and replaced BGM
Fuck my childhood and fuck Saban. At least I had the privilege of rewatching Adventure the proper way. I enjoyed this anime much more as an adult than as a kid.
Xros Wars wasn't awful. It was pretty shellshocking coming from a "more mature" Savers though.
No one liked Hunters. It's the 02 of Xros Wars, except somehow worse.
this new anime will have the other kids waapu shinka~~ right? RIGHT?
I grew up with the german dub so I'm used to the original music but they randomly used the american movie here instead of the japanese ones so I'm also used to the american music.
>watch the dub as a kid
>have fond memories of it
>watch the sub later on in life
>enjoy it, though there's that weird feeling you get watching something you've watched already in another language
>just now look up the dubbed movie on youtube
>that fucking dialogus
jesus fuck it's excruciating.
I actually think that Xros is on par with Adventures. I hated it at first but then it grew on me later.
OH GOD THE HYPE FOR IT. I GET CHILLS EVERYTIME THE SONG COMES ON
>Disappointed there was no anime announcement during the stream, there couldn't have been a better place to announce something
>fucking adventure sequel
Although I'm excited part of be would have preferred a new series all together. I'm still looking forward to it but eh..
Now that's a legit question.
Well, the trailer made a lot of emphasis in Adventure 01and its ending, and we already know that the MC will be Tai again, so...
we have to keep waiting
I don't remember if I liked it or not, all I know is that /a/ has convinced me that I should not have enjoyed it in the least.
So I'm guessing that I did like it. If not just for the fact it was Digimon.
MAL says it's a sequel to 01.
Good old MAL saving anime.
>the trailer made a lot of emphasis in Adventure 01and its ending
It could be misleading but the way it was put together with the lack of 02 hints at the staff being conscious of 02 poor reception and Adventure being a fan favorite. My guess is that they'll make it as a sequel to Adventure while carefully avoiding any mention to 02.
I really do though. I'd kind of rather see a new group of kids go on an adventure in the Digital World.
I mean if they can nail this just right it could be amazing, but if they were to focus too much on High School SoL stuff or if they follow 02's EVERYONE HAS DIGIMON thing then I am not sure I really want it.
I remember hating it even as a kid watching it for the first time. Compared to Adventure, it just wasn't fun anymore. I absolutely hated Davis, found Yolei annoying, and Cody was just plain boring and unnoticeable.
I did like TK and Kari, but with an older and wiser perspective I now see it was just because they were carryovers from Adventure and the actual 02 versions of the characters were as boring and unimportant as Cody.
the only part of gt i will concede is bad is the end bit where goku has to fight the magic ball spirits who were demons made from the wishes
that was fucking awful
i will defend the rest of it until my dying breath
it's been 2 or 3 years since i've watched but i don't even remember the problems 02 had except i think they dropped a plotline or two?
plus 02 gave us ken "bad motherfucker" ichijouji and stingmon which are both great
Anyone else played this?
wasted my summer as a kid playing this shit
Love/hate relationship with that game. Enjoyed the dungeon crawling, hated the DNA digivolution forced grinding. I preferred both 1 and 3, but I still replay 2 from time to time.
>3 completely separate movies are stitched together
>the digimon rap
>American rock songs
>that fucking dialogue
Though I have to say, I liked Omegamon's evolution in the English dub far more because of the nice music
Shame that Xros hunters was shitty, the digimons looked so good.
I've enjoyed every Digimon series aside from 02 and Frontier, but even them there were things I liked about them. I like how drastically different Digimon can be while still being Digimon. I like it becuase it's not just more of the same all the time, whether it's the anime, manga or games.
>Tamers 02 when?
I'm 99.9% sure Konaka is done with Tamers and won't write a direct sequel no matter what.
Not the rock, the growing orchestra when the green bodies come together and the hands extend into arms. Original is like kids in a chorus and doesn't feel as powerful to me.
Especially after the executives fucked with him like that, shoving in Ryo and cutting budget for animations
STOP GETTING YOUR HOPES UP FOR THIS.
DIGIMON WILL NEVER BE THE FORCE IT ONCE WAS.
I REMEMBER THIS EXCITEMENT WHEN SAVERS WAS ANNOUNCED, AND WHAT HAPPENED THERE? DISAPPOINTMENT.
SAME WITH XROS WARS.
THE MAGIC OF DIGIMON IS OVER. GO HOME. THIS WILL BE A DISAPPOINTMENT.
>all his best friends aren't metal heads
>I can't handle those kids being hurt like that
Watch the Tamers movies.
Give this to SHAFT while you're at it.
>That feel when Digimon Re:Digitized will never come to america
Best Digimon game reporting in, I played this and the original digital pets that the franchise was based on so much as a kid.
The only way Urobuchi would get involved with Digimon would be through a new series like Konaka with Tamers. Toei values its classics and they won't let him touch the Adventure series beyond maybe a throwaway midseason episode.
I don't mind tragic endings, but holy shit if you pull a sequel in which everything works out, perfect, a movie would be enough.
Just like in CCS it just ends and then the movie fixes it up, god, loved that.
Don't make a new thread until we hit page 7 or 8 this time.
