New picture from main site!
Can I watch this without seeing any other Digimon related stuff? I like those designs.
>The series is set approximately six years after the events of Digimon Adventure, three years after Digimon Adventure 02.
i really doubt they'll ignore season two but they may pull some amazing bullshit involving the final episode of xros wars the boy tamers who leapt through time where takato having watched taichi and the gang as a tv show in his world tipping taichi off to the betrayal of yamato. and taichi using this knowledge actually successfully goes back to his own time and changes history so he ends up with sora.
>tfw you will never have a digimon partner to grow old with you
Character artstyle really looks similar to Cencoroll, not that thats a bad thing It stayed closer to its original style so it wouldn't suffer from sameface syndrome as much.
They all have the fucking EXACT same face
What is this shit
>Then there should be a fucking anime about math.
Closest we have is Summer Wars ending, I think.
>Cute numbers doing cute things or numbers piloting robot numbers to save the world from numberkaijuu
I'd watch it.
your face when instead herculeskabuterimon koushiro is the one who does something stupid and rash this season and we get
This looks great, I like it.
These are not their names though (except Sora), and if you're from USA the series you watched was completely butched.
Then don't post bullshit in the threads expecting a huge hugbox with other dubfags like yourself.
I know the story is pure nonsense and that the villains could have gone somewhere else to gather dark energy without dealing with the Cures and that the clock reset was dumb and that the characters are flat beyond their chests but visually it had a lot of great episodes.
>Getting angry at people that used the dubbed names when that is all they had as children when watching it when it was airing
Not defending dubs but this is one of the few acceptable cases it is okay.
Yeah, though I doubt anything will top HeartCatch, I mean, they had Mizuki fucking Nana voicing the MC, it must've cost more than all of last year anime budgets. Even though the final fight was kind of shit, it was still awesome seeing Infinity Silhouette even if she wasn't no MANA SUE.
I wasn't the poster you responded to, so obviously there's more than just one person who has an attachment to the dubbed names.
And the dub didn't even really change the official names, with a few exceptions. It just gave them nicknames. Mimi, Sora, and Joe (well, Jou, but it's pronounced near-identically) all remained intact, and most of the kids just had their names shortened. As far as name changes go, these aren't particularly terrible.
I don't understand all this complaining about the artstyle being ruined, you can't ruin something that looked ugly as fuck in the first place. Take your rose colored nostalgia goggles off, Digimon always looked like shit.
Don't forget to add the movie and ova
I guess we"ll have at-least 50 episodes since the story will process through whole year because they show them in both winter and summer cloth
it was already confirmed to be less than 50 episodes
I'm not arguing 02 does or does not happen, but the poster seems to be trying to say it's DIRECTLY from Adventure, especially with Mimi's hat and the fact she's not in America.
I really do like this simplified artstyle very much. Makes everything look so orderly and cleaned up. Though I really can't imagine it all that well for a Digimon show. They can't make the actual Digimon evolutions look as minimalistic, it could end up looking incredibly boring.
If it helps any, nobody else likes it either.
>hype 120% since anniversary
>dropped to 90% when first image came out
>watch Cencoroll right away and return to 120%
Now I'm at 200% and have jizzed everywhere. I can't fucking wait.
They didn'tmarry to have kids you idiot, they had SEX and all the girls in that picture had it in the ass, oral sex is guaranteed, i don't know how they can see their digimons at the face when their mouths and holes just tasted semen and dick.
Who playing with their Digivice in anticipation here? I wish the motion sensor on this thing wasn't complete garbage.
It counts since these are stupid expensive these days, I was lucky my old one still works. I installed that app today too but for some reason it always crashes a second after I open it.
>It's Toei's own franchise, so they might actually put some effort there
Holy shit! You Digimon fags are so delusional!
This artstyle didn't bother me in Tsuritama. Why does it bother me here?
I feel the only thing worse than this is if they gave the character design to that Eureka Seven nigger that makes everything he works on look like some sort of Eureka Seven sequel.
>huge digimon fan
>watched every season even the shit ones.
>only seen savers and xros subbed
>only watched season 1 dubbed from childhood
>want to watch with nostalgia fags but know that I will never experience it in the same way.
I don't even know what butterfly is.
Say I the ones who are awesome
don'tknow that feel
It's a nostalgia property so only people who grew up with it give a shit about it. Which is good since the BD Box sold great and CyberSleuth is looking to do great in sales as well. So while kids might not give a shit about it 90's kids still do.
MON is a file type.
Because they're digital.
Actually it stands for monster
Agu=Agu-agu=onomatopoeia for biting=Bite monster
Pata=Pata-pata=onomatopoeia for flapping wings=Flapflap Monster
Gabu=Gabu-Gabu=onomatopoeia for chomping=Chomp monster
List goes on. Like Biyomon actually being Piyomon and Piyo-Piyo being the sound birds make in Japan
I've said this in the other thread, but the only reason Taichi gets paired with Mimi is because shippers pity him for not getting Sora. Same reason Yamato gets shipped with her in Taiora fanfics.
Mimi doesn't have any real meaningful reaction with either of them in the show itself.

Where did it all go so wrong?
It's been 15 fucking years on this fandom, I just can't let go the hate
>she turned into a insufferable bitch in 02
She kinda was in Adventure too.
The difference was she also had good moments in Adventure, while 02 she was just crap.

Digimon Cyber Sleuth Stream:
Fuck this looks so fucking bad.
Why can't Toei do it right even for fucking Digimon? It's Digimon gods sake, it will sell a lot and give a shit ton of money. Hate toei motherfuckers
02 ruined almost all of the Adventure cast. They just ruined Sora the most.
Koushiro comes out the most unmolested and Taichi a bit behind him, but even they were much more flat than they're Adventure counterpart.
02 hating is such an abing meme at this point
it'smediocre by definition, but not that terrible
After the stream I realized that I'd rather have Xros BD than Adventure.
Most likely due to Hiroyuki Kakudou's insistence. DSB had shown a slightly different image...
Even though he's not apart of the staff for Tri, he did do the new drama CD (no Taichi in that one) with Hiromi Seki and Genki Yoshimura, so they do still have some form of control for the direction of Tri. With that said, this would seem to be a series intended to justify some of 02's directions, filling in gaps and elaborating on "certain things"...
It's only a matter of time before they gradually zero in on Sora and Yamato's relationship
I like how Tri completely invalidates this, not that it was worth much to begin with, they where all taken from their prime, and unless Taichi doesn't develop at all in Tri, this is no longer his prime.
TK had to have stood a chance to begin with in order to be cucked, which clearly he did not have a chance.
Regardless, she ended up with some nameless dude.
>he did do the new drama CD
What new drama CD?
Also, isn't Kakudou universally disliked for how he always fucks up what he's working on? I remember he caused problems with Transformers at least.
>just watched Cencoroll
MY ACTUAL DICK, HYPE TRAIN TIME
Man, I remember when Digimon were these things. That Tamagotchi craze was really something.
>tamagotchis were fucking insanely popular in grade school
>digimon tamagotchis were somewhat of a myth because they weren't licensed at the time and when they finally were they were fucking expensive (for tamagotchi standards)
I only managed to get a digivice by the time Frontier came out
So we've got absolutely no idea what those drama CDs were about then?
We do. The first one is set before Adventure and star Tailmon and Wizarmon with special guests Ogremon and Leomon.
You can read it here: http://great-blaster.tumblr.com/post/112800004305/track-1-before-the-world-ends
The second one is set between Adventure and 02. It involves Yamato, Mimi, their Digimon partners and Jou's 02 brother, Shuu, investigating the connection between Kyoto's navel stone and the Holy Beasts. There is a scene of Palmon evolving into Rosemon. This audio drama, however, is still untranslated.
Now I was a bit hesitant myself, but seeing as how this is a new staff team and therefore, a (relatively) new perspective, this could probably be an advantage, who knows, seeing as how this is also targeting a "New" audience in addition to the S1 veterans, the staff might see this as an opportunity to "re-evaluate" some things.
Also another Link acquired from a previous thread:
Like the anon before me had said, it's a two story Drama CD:
First one is a Tailmon and Wizardmon story, the other one is about the younger original chosen (everyone but Taichi and Hikari) meeting each other again and Palmon's evolution.
It's not that I don't think something good could possibly come of it, it's just that no one really wants to see 02 justified. Most don't want to see 02 involved at all. Even most of the staff actually involved found the decisions in the show questionable. I just can't see it as anything other than a huge argument.
Oh nice, didn't know there'd be another.
>Where did it all go so wrong?
Your choice of waifu.
Mimi > all
>Taichi, Yamato and Sora makes 3
>Kakudou wanted Taichi left out in the CD Drama.
>Makes 2, but this is a sequel of Adventure, the first one, making it 3
>This anime is Tri
Kakudou indirectly confirmed for Illuminati
>Yamato x Taichi end confirmed
I'm okay with this.
>mfw I don't give a shit about "original version" just the shit I grew up with
>mfw I eagerly await for the dub that will have the same English theme song instead of trying to pander to weebs like Funi did with Kai
>mfw Butterfly and Braveheart are shitty songs anyway and people praise them just to fit in
I understand, as much as there's a lot of people who dislike 02, it's
unfortunatelysome form of a key element in Tri.
This is where I think they're trying to compromise; they know that because Tri is a Sequel/Prequel or sorts, the majority of their roadblocks are:
-That there are fans (old and new) of 02 (target that audience as well);
-They need to deal with some ground work set by the previous staff and 02 altogether
Unless they plan on doing an ALT universe (that takes a slightly different route from 02) -which probably isn't going to happen-;
-Hiroyuki Kakudou, Hiromi Seki and Genki Yoshimura's influence in some way
They'll have to factor that all in somehow while attempting to produce a new experience, which will be quite the challenge. I'm sure they're doing what they can, but as the Tri promotional ads suggest, their strategy is trying to evoke S1 nostalgia to approach this series,which might work to their advantage.
Anytime Anon! From the previous thread, this was fairly recent.
Nah I just never saw the appeal in them. Braveheart got old because they CONSTANTLY KEPT PLAYING IT and generally just didn't get me hyped up. Butterfly was okay I guess. I can see the sentimental value of both songs though given that they're frequently ranked high on all time best anime song lists but I could never really care. Maybe it's something you have to had grown up with Tsubasa o Kudasai.
I have only watched a few episodes in Japanese with subtitles, so I know what you mean about the constant playing. I kind of like Braveheart more than Butter-fly (for that dreamy twinkly intro, man) but they do play it an awful damn lot for every Digimon evolution/transformation/whatever the fuck it's called.
I grew up with the dub. But it seems quite a bit was changed around, so it's nice to go back and watch the original (and because I'm not a weeaboo, I need the subtitles).
I wish I was like 15 years younger. My younger self would have loved this.
Way awesome and better than Pokemon.
>Digimon Adventure 02
What is this shit? Why are they only visiting the Digiworld? The old kids should show up way more than this!
Oh hell no this is bullshit. All my old characters are gone? Who cares about this nobody watches Digimon for the monster novelty value.
Then I stopped watching and only later heard that Digimon Tamers was actually a good show in its own right. I told myself I would stick with Digimon if it came out again.
100% Shit, though by then maybe I really was too old.
All I ever wanted was the old cast back and now here they are, long after their fans have grown up and moved on. Oh well.
I'm kinda meh, about the art style, but I'll roll with it for the time being...
Just got done scrolling a huge archive of Digi-Rule 34 that wasn't actually shit for once, so finding out about this just makes my day even better
May god have mercy on the soul of the poor unlucky guy who ended with Hikari. Because as we know, she considers love as something selfish and probably treats him like a pet and the masochist to her sadism and calls him Taichi when she rides him.
I can accept new things, but don't call the new thing by the old thing's name. Like I liked Hana Yori Dango but if they call Hana Yori Dango "Digimon 14" then I'd hate it. Because its not Digimon.
I watched Digimon not because I love the concept of random "digital monsters" but because I liked the characters. I liked the idea of being trapped in an alternate dimension.
02 failed at this. Tamers failed at this even more and made me miss 02, though I heard it was a good show. Frontier was just a horrible show and I did give it an honest try, though again, it could have been my age speaking since I think by that time I was in highschool.
I kinda agree with you, but unlike things like pokemon, digimon was always about different continuities with different stories. Things would've gotten pokemon tier stale and stagnant if all the six seasons we got were still about the original group of chosen childrens
Uh I dont watch Gundams period because I am not interested in gigantic robots flying around and shooting people. I'm not a 13 year old boy.
I am sure. I didn't say it was a bad thing. I am just saying that back when I was young enough to watch Digimon, I would have loved to see the old gang back. I missed them and never got back into Digimon after they left. Those shows are perfectly good I am sure. Maybe even Frontier is good. It just isn't what I wanted to see. I liked the original kids. I didn't like these new kids under the banner of "Digimon" because to me, Digimon was more than just the crappy monsters, it was the people.
And also the thing about a kids show is that it doesn't get stale. Nobody is watching all 6 seasons of Pokemon. You watched a season or two when you were the right age for it, and now totally new kids are watching it.
>You watched a season or two when you were the right age for it, and now totally new kids are watching it.
this is actually the model for the ashnime, but of course they underestimated the autism of their fanbase.
People still watch Pokemon, but they're more likely than not watching the subtitled shit online, not the dub. Not just kids. Adults. I'm not saying that people are sticking to the anime series as a whole, but some seasons have more fans than other seasons.
Latest Results, we may have to into another tiebreaker round for villain if this doesn't change.
Please continue to vote!
You sound someone way too narrow-minded and autistic about your own opinions to enjoy much of anything outside of your small comfort zone, at least not without constantly bitching about your specific tastes.
So just another /a/non, I guess.
I didnt see that half. I saw the half where the stupid kid had a dinosaur on the playground and all my favorite characters were wiped off the face of the earth never to be seen again. Like if they decided to call their new show "Stupid kid and his dino pal" I would watch it and probably like it since apparently it was a good show. I watched any crap that Fox Kids put out back then.
But no, they called it "Digimon" and yet all the characters I liked from Digimon were gone. In that case, what is the point? As an adult, if I knew it was coming, that would be fine. But when you are a kid and not expecting that? You are already upset after a whole season of Joe/Mimi being limited to cameo appearances only? Its a smack in the face. No, I am not watching stupid kid and his dino pal. I want Digimon.
You guys get it.
It's still Digimon, your logic is messed up, Digimon started out as a V-Pet, by your logic if someone had the v_Pet they wouldn't be able to watch the anime because it wasn't the Digimon they knew.
For that matter, you couldn't enjoy the games, manga or really anything else. Why even bother with the franchise at all?
Why are people such nazis about streaming? I mean, I don't do it but I don't get why it bothers other people so much. it's like being mad that people like ketchup when you like mustard.
Sure isn't streaming here!
Kill yourself, you cancerous newshit.
No I am not. All I said was that my younger self would have loved this show.
I watch all sorts of anime. I go outside my comfort zone all the time. But Tamers disappointed me deeply as a kid. That's not to say its not a good show. And maybe I would have enjoyed it. But it disappointed me.
I can accept different continuities even especially now that I am an adult. But as a kid waiting to see a new season of your favorite show, you don't want to see a "new continuity" (which is pretty much just an entirely different show using the old label to attention whore).
For example, since I brought up Hana Yori Dango, I love the manga and the live action versions (before the movie anyway the movie was horrible).
HYD is one of the best selling romance series to come out of Japan, and has spawned adaptations worldwide, from USA to South Korea to India to China to Taiwan. Its Cinderella, Romeo/Juliet and Beauty/Beast (?) all rolled up into one.
Anyone who cannot appreciate HYD cannot appreciate romance.
>Mayumi Yamaguchi (Japanese Gabumon): Honestly, Sora! If you'd spent just a few minutes to ask [Gabumon] for advice, I would have said, "Sora, don't do this to yourself. It's Taichi you should go for."

Fuck off, it's garbage shoujoshit with all the worst shoujoshit tropes ever rolled into one.
to be fair, just in it airing when it did and the fact that to most people, digimon equaled adventure, tamers restarting everything instead of trying to fix the problem that was 02 made a lot of people not even want to give it a chance, me included
I only really took note of it a couple years after it aired during a rerun, by then I was over and feelings I had when it first came out, and watching frontier probably made it easier to see that tamers was actually really good
I never played the games or V Pet, so who cares. I read a bit of the manga, it was bare-bones and kind of crappy, not something I would ever enjoy or read on its own merit.
For me, I was able to still enjoy 02 (albeit with much bitching every weekend) because I still could hold out hope to see one of the old kids. Could V-Petters (?) enjoy the first anime? Who knows. Who cares.
Tamers was a smack in the face to me. It was still a good show I am sure, but I had no motivation to watch it after Digimon Franchise had first taken my fav characters and shoved them to the back by Season 2 and then booted them off entirely for Season 3. Yes, maybe this was their plan and they did it again for Season 4 so the cast would be fresh. But keeping a fresh cast means also that you alienate people who enjoy continuity and character development.
no it does not, it's just lust and depression at not being able to get with your own species.
not even shittiest goggle boy Daisuke sank so low.
Also fucking your partner is far worse than fucking a random digimon.
Now where is that file... Oh there it is!
>But keeping a fresh cast means also that you alienate people who enjoy continuity and character development.
Their story already ended. Fuck, the most terrible thing about the 02 ending and epilogue was that it was such a closed book case you couldn't really do anything with it. I'm surprised they even found something to do for Tri.
How could you expect Tamers to have ANYTHING to do with the previous series with that kind of ending?
Exactly, if they wanna choose shit let them. Consider it Darwinism or something. I'll continue watching the normal non-stream way. But honestly why do you guys care. I just don't understand why you'd pay so much attention to what other people are doing on the internet. Let them eat shit while you eat your ketchup.
>that feel when you try to make one of these and everything goes fine until you realize the only part left is the partner for "You"
>Hipster tendency kicks in full force and it just simply cannot be an Agumon/already established main character digimon nor a waifumon because it's not strong enough and mine is pretty much taken by the Rival because of your plans
>only options who can fill the shoes really are Hackmon and Dracomon
I have contracted the purest form of autism. Destroy me
at the very least though thank Jesmon for Dracomon. I never want to partner with Hackmon also seriously this thing takes so much autism to actually complete,holy shit.
Mods used to ban cunts like you, streamfag
Just what you would expect from fucking Toei, man what happened tot hat studio.
Well I will still watch it because it is Digimon and have high expectations for it
I think I am way too old for Digimon tbh, I might take a peek at this new show for nostalgia purposes. I'm not about to start catching up on Seasame Street either.
Digimon Season 1 was a really special show to me as a kid, my favorite show. I'll always remember it very fondly.
What are these "worst" tropes? The forbidden romance angle? The softening bad boy angle? Poor girl surrounded by hot rich guys angle? You have a funny definition of "worst".
>What are these "worst" tropes? The forbidden romance angle? The softening bad boy angle? Poor girl surrounded by hot rich guys angle? You have a funny definition of "worst".
All of the awful forced drama, pseudo NTR shit, pseudo-rape shit etc. Main girl is basically a self insert
Because that encourages newfags to come here. Elitism and forcing them to lurk works better.
I miss the /a/ that made you lurk more before posting, any newfag can come and not get laughed straight back out now, as this thread shows.
