So what did you think of these 4 episode ? animation, storyline etc.. i guess it was not bad for toei standard but it felt like something was missing for me. i don't know what tho. 7/10 atm
Mimi and Hikari Best girl. Taichi best boy.
But in all seriousness, it's pretty good. I dig the aged characters and the plot seems fine.
i agree, but the plot seems too simple..it's slow. i don't know.. the only thing that surprised me was the huge Digihand grabbing kuwagamon back in the digiworld. And what about these "gods" in the beggining ?
It was decent. I wasn't a fan of the way the characters looked, Taichi was a bitch dragging everything down and the last fight could have been better.
Still, it was good enough for me to be looking forward to the next one.
I think it was more about him being insecure really. He just doesn't want to make choices that'll affect his life or the life of others, like shown in the beggining of the episode when he was asked about his career path.
Reminder that the only relevant kind of shipping is homo shipping.
It was fucking awful, the art, the sound, the animation, the drama, the re-introductions, the stills, how can you mess up this hard.
Mimi's ponytail was fucking 10/10 though, god damn it.
It was simple, a nice start but not enough digimon for 2 hours of animation.
Low budget as fuck, 2 digimon scenes and 1 & 1/2 hours of far away shots and stills.
It may end up being really decent if they show us some new stuff, I was really surprised that the distilled content of 1/6th of the series could be summed in 2 sentences.
It's not explained or elaborated on
the 02s are now labled "missing"
>There were people who doubted he was going to show up
CHOO CHOO EVERYBODY
Time to bomb this threads.
I unironically liked Miyako.
Not that I want her back for Tri or anything, just saying.
>I unironically liked Miyako.
You disgust me.
Nothing wrong with liking the best girl.
Shit writing. I liked the 4 episodes but this shit with Taichi was so fucking cringeworthy holy shit.
>i dont want anyone to get hurt because of me
Fucking don't do anything and they'll die, what is there to think about?
Is Davis Motomiya dead?
He's suffering from typical Japanese guilt. In that he's now an adult and is reflecting on how his actions back then might have gotten or will get people hurt. He's still being a little bitch but Yamato's being a hothead about it all.
I mean, at least he's not ACTIVELY avoiding responsibility like Jou is.
It's a switch up of how they were as kids. Yamato's now the confident one while Taichi is one who has hesitation and self doubt. It's like poetry. It rhymes.
>my soul when new Butterfly, I Wish and Brave Heart
I got goosebumps every single time, fucking blast from the past
Yes, current Taichi is a disgrace.
Good thing she's irrelevant.
I'd never think they would actually play the song "Seven" in this movie.
>02 kids trounced at the beginning
>Location on the organization's map says UNKNOWN
>Gennai still have his 02 look.
>Takeru still in contact with the foreign digi destined around the world.
All of this is really mysterious, i wonder if the 02 kids will have a shocking reappearance.
>Jyo actually isn't very smart.
Jyo confirmed as the Milhouse of the Digimon franchise.
>Killing human main characters
The only instances i remember this happened were Kouji's brother in Frontier and Ichiro Oikawa in 02.
At bare minimum i can see a passing mention of them recovering and thanking the old school for saving the day.
They're major characters of the franchise, if they will die it's gonna be quite notorious. It's like suddenly killing Pluto, he's just Mickey's dog and just kind of there most of the time but if he dies for good is gonna be fucking big.
As a huge Digi-fag who has watched the series' twice over, all the movies and has a collection of games, I find this first chapter of six to be very decent.
I think the stuff with Taichi is pretty annoying but I also sort of understand where he's coming from. I believe this is all leading up to something with the next chapter though as a character development.
Koushiro is the best as usual. Meiko was surprisingly cute, she didn't bother me at all and I want to put my dick in Mimi but she's 2D so I'll settle for Koshiro doing it.
Jou, dude, get your shit together
Got your back my nigga. V-Mon was all kinds of awesome.
>All new three characters are annoying as fuck in their own way
>The old cast is non-existent excluding Takeru and Hikari
>Everything after the Emperor Arc was dumb as fuck
>Oikawas Arc was boring as fuck
>A shitload of broken mini-arcs and plotpoints that never get picked up again
>''Wwwwww Myotismon/Vamdemon Twist
Does anyone have this stitched?
I'm pretty bad at it.
Can't really say I'd look forward to it, Digimon Masters and it's pay to everything model already ruined my digimon game expectations. Not to mention a moba but at least I can still play dusk on my phone occasionally
It was slow, but expected of the "set-up/reintroduction" movie. The only thing that really pissed me off was the lack of battle grunts and attack names, and what the fuck was up with the lack of full wrap evolution for Omegamon?
>The only thing that really pissed me off was the lack of battle grunts and attack names
That's technically how Digimon started though. Personally I always loved that shit. They do it in the old movies all the time. Makes the fights feel more feral.
Didn't stop Togemon from CHIKU CHIKU BANG BANG'ing though
I actually love 02. The Digimon were cool. Some of the characters were cool like Takeru and Ken. The end with that guy and Pipimon was cute. The music was great. It had some great movies. I can't be critical of Digimon. It's just almost always enjoyable to me.
The only thing that was shit was the last part of xros wars with the time hunters. But even then I enjoyed the Digimon, characters and music.
So they don't even have a design to show of the 02 kids? Tlak about redshirts
It's a pilot hat. They couldn't give her goggles because Daisuke had them, although I suppose that's what the glasses are for. She had a Digimon she flew on and it had plane wings so it made sense.
>Some of the characters were cool like Takeru and Ken
What the fuck did Takeru ever do? He had like one moment in the series when he stood up to Ken's shit and punched him out. That was literally his only "moment" in the series.
Ken was great but he's like the only good thing about the show
Not him, but that was still one more "moment" than any other characters. Everyone else was bland as hell. He also had a few other moments when it involve DARKNESS, like the time with Blackwargreymon
That reminds me how in the xros wars dub they censored Omegamon's crotch armour because they though it was gigantic dick bulge.
He was responsible for this abomination which I actually love. The Cthulhu episode as great too and I love the Lopmon/Terriermon movie.
You'll get in the robot, won't you Koushiro?
Look at this shit. It's got fucking lasers. How can anybody hate this?
>He was responsible for this abomination which I actually love.
That was terrible. That episode tried to force some kind of Takeru/Iori comraderie as if they'd ever had a conversation before that point.
>The Cthulhu episode as great too and I love the Lopmon/Terriermon movie.
I'd argue neither of those are particularly "Takeru-centric" like the Ken punching I mentioned but fine. That's only like two things though
I want more homo pandering in the second movie. Don't let me down, Toei.
Koushiro mentioned an american friend, does that mean walrus is canon?
if that's the case, i hope these two make an appearence
Looks like it, they don't seem to be dating and there was barely anything between them that could be considered "shippy" in this movie. Even fucking Yamato x Meiko got more pandering than Sorato.
Digimon appeals to such a juvenile part of me. I find it hard to explain it in words how enjoyable it is to see two random assed monsters fighting eachother because friendship and courage to catchy 90's pop music. I can't explain it beyond that.
Ken really was one of my favourite things about 02 too though. That one character and the emotion behind it plus the superficial stuff I mentioned is enough for me to love it.
Koushiro probably wasn't talking about Wallace, but Takeru went on a website called "Digidestined of the World" which alluded to the other Digidestined from 02 including Wallace!
I was hoping we would see Wallace with Mimi since she was in New York and some of the movie took place there.
>kind of, now Sora just looks like a bitch who can't decide what she wants
Sora isn't a bitch, she's just Archie.
I suddenly had a thought. What if the 02 kids were part of this Secret Goverment Organization(do we have a name for them yet), and that was how they manage to repel the weaker digimon that show up before. But they sent the 02 kids after alpha mom before the show starts and got fodderized, so that's why they have no choice but to turn to the original kids now.
i'm really confused as to what happened with the events of 02
it's obvious they happened, hence takeru having a d3, the digidestined website, the 02 kids at the beggining
But at the same time, the fact that they don't mention any of 02 events is really weird
Maybe Taichi will find out what happened to the 02 kids, and he gets mad at the organization and places a lot of blame on them for sending them against Alphamon. It'd be weird to have a government organization not be assholes at some point and it could be a part of their direction they are going with Taichi, how he's afraid to kill people and shit.
I think the less they say the better. They didn't mention much of the events from the first Adventure either. I'm sure the fate of the 02 kids will be addressed in the future.
Too bad they both only have eyes for their onii-chan.
>Doesn't explain why the original 8 didn't wonder or tried to contact the 02 kids when shit got real
The Digital Gate closed for an entire year, maybe the 02 kids were traveling the Digital World and they couldn't reach them?
There would be no way to send the 02 kids to the Digital World to fight Alphamon, unless they went through a distortion. Maybe they just chased him in or somethign I dunno wehre I'm going with this.
>WtW had to create a separate thread for shipping
>Just binge-watched Tri
>Saw the 02 kids get thrashed in ominous red hued flashbacks(?)
Damn Toei, that got dark real fast.
So, anyone want to speculate on why ol' Alphamon decided to be the Big Bad of this series?
I swear, if Toei somehow manages to shoehorn Myotismon into Tri I'm gonna punch through a wall...
>It does to me to, but I'm also gonna call it out when it's shit. I mean, this is stuff I noticed when I was a little kid
What do you want me to say? You asked me why I enjoyed 02 and I told you. I don't get ass pained at cartoons and I watch them as mindless entertainment so I look past their flaws.
>all this info making 02 canon.
Yet, no mention or concern when the 02 kids never show up to meetings/fights. Do the others just not give a shit about them any more at this point?
While I'm not sure myself, >>133775220 seems to have a good theory of what might be going on. Koushiro did say access from Digital World had been cut off for a year or so. Maybe they were in the Digital realm when it happened?
Why all the hate on Taichi? He's worried about how giant monsters fighting the streets are gonna fuckshit up, kill people, and just destroy shit. He even said it in the second or third part of the movie and Agumon said it as soon as they met up, He's grown up/changed like anyone else would. can any of yall actually say you have the exact same ideals/personality as you did back when you were 10?
Meicoomon is causing the distortions and he is trying to stop him.
Notice how he withdrew his Kuwagamon from finishing off Garurumon, and he withdrew from his fight from Alphamon.
I don't know how this ties to the 02 kids so I might be wrong. Meicoomon is a big part of it though.
>MFW I'll never see the Frontier crew again
I bet they could solo any of these fuckers.
Something about "If he does nothing people will definitely die"
I'm not worried about it since I know they're going somewhere with it and it'll probably be cleared up by the next or movie after that
>He's grown up/changed like anyone else would. can any of yall actually say you have the exact same ideals/personality as you did back when you were 10?
Most people on /a/ are 10.
I don't really have a probem with the things he's worried about, more about the way it was presented. I didn't really feel it got the message across well by showing the same three stills over and over.
>a gigantic fight about if Duftmon is Hitler or not
Well, that's just silly. There can only be one.
>Maybe they were in the Digital realm when it happened?
The 02 kids were in the clothes they only wear while in the Digital World, so it seems likely. (Although for some reason TK, Hikaru and Ken didn't change outfits because lol 02.)
Adorable as fuck
>I thought they were going to make movies. Why did they split it into 4 eps?
It's one movie split in four parts for the online release
>Also, these character designs don't look anything like the early promo pics.
The character designs in the show itself look way better than OP's promo pic
I just finished watching all four episodes of the new digimon series.
I'm overall satisfied with the animations and the storytelling in general. It's been so long i'm taken aback seeing how much everyone's grown. The fact that they're still carrying their digivices on them at all times goes to show just how strong the bound between them and their digimon is and it was really heart-moving to see Taichi grabbing his digivice first thing in the morning.
I also got reminded of my first waifu. Sora. She's the way i remembered her being, she's as always the middleman making sure Taichi and Yamato don't hit one another too hard. I just love her.
It's not the FuhrerAgumon that gets me about this. It's all his holocaust Agumon with numbers on their heads. It's like the data of /pol/ made this thing.
I'm not sure but I think maybe Crunchyroll was the ones who separated the episodes? There's no way it would have aired like that in theatres. Maybe they wanted it to feel like an anime series, or they're preparing for the future when they can air it on a channel or something. I'm just spitballing.
We got new promo pics of their current designs a long time ago so it shouldn't have been a surprise if you were following news of it.
That's the thing: there's 6 releases, each split into 4 episodes.
It's like a 24 season handed out in portions perfect for binge-watching.
Pretty genius way to keep the hype train going when you think about it...
Animation wise it had some QUALITY, more than i'd expect from a movie, but the action scenes were pretty good.
The new evolution animations aren't as cool as they were, which i'm surprised by.
The animation for prefect and above are absent which i'm not happy about.
Story wise, i sure hope they explain what's going on with Taichi, his insecurity, not knowing what's the best course of action, hesitation trough maturity I expect him to return to his former self by the end of it, and i suspect that Yamato will be the one to get him there.
MimixKoshiro is so adorable.
Jo has a girlfriend, no one believes him, and neither do I .
Not much to say about the meganekko with a neko, she's probably gonna be important to defeat Alphamon.
Remember when Takeru was had the mcguffin?
All in all i had a big dumb smile on my face for most of the movie, and i got used to Hikari's new voice quickly.
Of course it will. There will probably also be more gay shit between him and Yamato, just like in Adventure.
Of course not but when people are killed and buildings are demolished, someone has to take that burden. I'm pretty sure insurance policies don't pay out for giant monster attacks. And what if in the fighting Hikari or anyone else gets killed? Would anyone want to shoulder that responsibility?
Koushiro was pretty moe in this movie. I'm really enjoying the Koumi pandering even if it's just bait.
TaichiXYamato is amazingly the "pairing" that has by far the most pandering in all of the Digimon seasons.
The amount of time devoted to their relationship is unbelievable.
Taichi also has some meaningful interactions with Koushiro and Sora but it's not at the same level.
As much of a slut she might be she's no mach for Hikari. I remember using her looks to get the two boys to do whatever she wanted them doing throughout adventure 02. Occasionally, she'd also mess with them. Now that's what I'd call a slut.
That's actually a pretty good theory.
Although the whole "Infected Digimon" thing kept giving me flashbacks to Devimon turning other Digimon crazy on File Island with his Black Gears, so there might be some... Dark Area involvement.
And there's always the gag of Alphamon only shows up to chase Dark Area booty, but I highly doubt that will ever pop up... though I'd laugh if it did
Yeah, it was especially visible in this movie again. I actually expected them to turn it down in favour of the Sora "love triangle" bullshit but instead we got a whole movie of "oh no these two are fighting, how can we get them to make up". Amazing.
And what a selection
it pisses me off so fucking much how exaggerated those Koumi spoilers were
>he can't stop thinking about her!
>he wants to move to the USA to be near her!
FUCK THAT all he did was drop his spaghetti whenever she was too close (and he did the same in that shot with the store clerk girl)
he's just discovered girls (that aren't Sora because she's fugly apparently, Hikari is Taichi's sister so can't touch that, Meiko sneezes too much) that's all
>plus dat Joumi hug
Taichi was always retarded.
Remember when he thought the Digital World was a game and almost walked into an eletric fence, then had an existential crisis when he realized OH SHIT NIGGA you can die!
Or the whole SkullGreymon thing. "I want to save everyone, evolve u faget" *evolves and kills everything.*
I haven't watched Adventures in a long time, but wasn't Mimi shipped with Jou back then? Or am I just imagining things?
I don't remember anything going on with Mimi and Koushiro.
I love how nonchalantly Alphamon manhandled them, not sure if it was supposed to be intentionally humorous or not
>The fuck is this? The fuck are you?
>Ew get away. This is annoying. I'm leaving.
>OW. Who threw that?
>Okay for real, I'm getting mad. Not joking. Knocking it.
>You know what I'm too old for this shit. Bye.
I think it's because Taichi and Yamato's rivalry/homolust left a huge mark and has been a staple of Digimon since Adventure.
TK-Daisuke and then Daisuke-Ken
Only Tamers avoided it with Takato and Henry being friends without drama and nothing more.
the plural of Digimon is Digimon.
Nah Sora seems to have the biggest rack, but he sees all the fighting over her and knows not to get involved.
Also Mimi was always much cuter than Sora (even with the retarded hair in 2)
Feels good knowing Takari still won't happen.
Accept the loss and move on.
there was an episode where she hit her hat repeatedly with sticks to make sound and draw an enemy digimon to her. But a number of episodes later she laid her hat on her bed and it just laid flat on it. So nobody really knows, had toei kept it a consistent work there'd be an answer.
I can see hating Taichi for that, but due to his dialogue the writers are self aware that he changed so much so I wouldn't call it bad writing at all. Maybe they didn't explicitly show dead bodies but they showed collateral damage so much.
I like to think Daisuke is with her now in some way.
Seriously what they did to the 02 kids was needlessly cruel, and the fact that the OG chosen children don't even mention them was just nasty.
That's pretty much what I thought.
I just realized that Meicoomon is in perma-adult form, just like gatomon. And we all know what Gotmon went through to stay perma-adult, so I suspect Meicoomon must have been through at least something similar.
I have a problem with the character designs. Why did they minimize everyone down to a few trivial characteristics like hair color/style? That's literally all you have to tell some of these fuckers apart.
I personally ship a pretty boy angel with a cat.
Seriously what they did to the 02 kids was needlessly cruel, and the fact that the OG chosen children don't even mention them was just nasty.
Have you ever seen the 1984 Transformer movie? It reminds me of that. Half the old cast dies to make way for the cast in the most unceremonious way possible. Actually that's not true, this movie did it in the most unceremonious way possible for any character ever. I'm hoping Alphamon just has them kidnapped, but I kind of doubt that after the fact they kids never mentioned them.
So Koushiro developed some futuristic technology in 2005? Damn that's impressive for a 16 year old kid. Then again he's been developing software since he was 10. I know Koushiro would go far.
well they have indeed hit puberty, they dropped individualism through personal clothing choices for whatever magazines advertise as fashionable so not to be left out. That seems pretty faithful to actual teens to me.
The thing is, the Transformers movie was...well it was a pretty "emotionless" reason, they needed to promote new toys and get rid of the old ones. Here it feels like a weird spite-pandering. If that makes any sense
>No Jo and Mimi
Every goddamn time. Why do they hate these characters so much? Especially Jo it seems.
Not only is he constantly spending every moment studying, he's failing on top of that. Why doesn't he just say "Fuck it" and become a deadbeat like Taichi at this point?
I don't want Tailmon to evolve but I want to see boob angel animated again. I mean the other evolutions looks pretty good considering this is Toei. They seem to put effort in action sequences.
The ending scene parallels the child form to the cast as kids, and adult form to the cast as teens. Here's the new girl with Meicoomon.
Jesus nigga, what's wrong with your settings?
I'm gonna be honest I cried when Butter-Fly started, I've been a huge fan of digimon ever since i first saw it as a kid. It was my absolute favourite anime and i restarted drawing (which is now my job) back in the summer between 9th and 10th grade because I decided to rewatch it. It's literally been a childhood dream to see another adventure with the original gang.
And thankfully the first 4 eps were enjoyable! Yeah there's some little things here and there, namely the final battle being really quick compared to the rest, but I didn't care that much for it. The interractions between the characters has always been the thing I enjoyed the most, I love how they seem like real kids and have a really nice friendship compared to most anime. Also I liked their looks, Yamato looked so qt in that long coat.The Joe scene with his "gf" was hilarious. Koumi was sweet too. Also I'm not bothered by Taichi's dilemma, it shows he's grown and is now aware of the responsibility he carries.
All in all a 8.5/10 for me. Had a huge smile and teared up a lot throughout.
I think he might be pulling from the technological advances from the Digital World as there is no limit of how much a program can evolve. Just look at the Digimon and the Digital World.
I totally get what you mean. I don't understand it either. It's not like how JJ Abrams wanted to show Jar Jar Bink's skeleton in the Force Awakens as a joke. 02 had a lot of issues but it wasn't really bad enough to be that brutal. Nobody really prequel Star Wars level hated it.
I'm thinking they have something planned, or they're not really dead, because it just seems unnecessarily cruel to have them permanently dead.
With the exception of Mimi's pink hair, they'd done this already with 02
Though I don't know if you saw the whole thing since we see them in their casual clothes and they stand out quite a bit
>I want to see boob angel animated again
No arguments here anon.
Honestly, that was the part I loved most. I couldn't stop laughing at how indifferent he was to the other Digimon's attacks.
You'd think the Digidestined would be able to identify a mega level like Alphamon.
You know what it's like. It's like when Scrappy Doo was the villain the the live action Scooby doo movie. It's something that's made to pander to those people who hate an aspect of the show but really it makes no sense and feels mean spirited.
Mimi was late to the part.
Jou is up to something.
There's a reason why they showed us the CIA guy coming to his house and his brother watching with a disapproving look.
No, it's not a dub thing. Jou is trying to be a doctor despite his lack of aptitude which was shown in the original series, in which his test scores were similar to the ones he got in Reunion.
This is all building up because Jou is going to be the first one outside of Taichi and Yamato to push the limit and reach Ultimate. Since right now Jou is running super contrary to his crest so he'll have his epiphany and Vikemon will come storming in
Why Digimon attract this kind of people? specially in Tamer fandom where those fedora neckbeards self insert in Takato.
What did you think of the new versions of Butterfly and Brave Heart?
They're doing this because a)they won't have to add 4 more characters (three of which are particularly unpopular) to a 8+1 cast that already is getting even bigger and b)doing a direct continuation to 02 considering how that ended would not be very wise at all. It severely limits the story.
As it is now, we're left with a feeling of what the hell is going on
It was around 2pm before and now it's dark. What the fuck, man.
I initially thought it was because Greymon and Kuwagamon temporarily went into the Digital World for a second and time just got wonky but then I remembered that shouldn't be a thing anymore so I'll just assume Toei forgot about that.
>mfw if Saban was dubbing this there would be random ass jokes and loud rock music playing during that entire awesome silent fight in the fourth part
I understand why they did it and it makes total sense. I don't even think it was the wrong decision. It was just that they got killed off in the first 5 minutes of the movie in a brutal montage before we even know what's happening, while the Adventure kids are doing normal slice of life bullshit.
I will be upset if they are permanently dead, but I will be happy if it had more of a point than just killing off extra characters. It seemed extra creul that nobody ever mentioned them or cared about them or worried about them and it was unexplained why Takeru and Hikari weren't part of that group.You can assume they went their separate ways after 02 ended, but they were part of the new Digidestined so it's kind of weird.
>no game where you can punch shoutmon to death
>It seemed extra creul that nobody ever mentioned them or cared about them or worried about them and it was unexplained why Takeru and Hikari weren't part of that group
That might have something to do with the plot though
Wanting to punch the partner who wants something for himself and succeeds at it.
>mfw the ED is supposed to represent how the V-Pets used to look
>Yamato was my favorite character while growing up
>He plays bass in a band
>I play bass in a band
>Use similar bass
>MFW I'm Yamato
I'm for real glad that Xross shit is not being included in Cyber Sleuth
8/10, hit the right nostalgia buttons, was fearing a SMC.
Would definitely like to know what's going on with the 02 kids, I don't think they're dead, that'd be bonkers. It looks like it's going to be important but to have them not mentioned by any of the cast seems 'odd' to say the least.
I wonder if that's another of the reason why Taichi's so reticent to fucking do anything, on that note, I get he's concerned but he could think of things to do with minimising the damage instead of being a emo tool about it.
The fuck is Jou up to, he's being really suspicious, is it pressure or something else that's bothering him.
I feel like the special effects of the infected Digimon and the egg in the beginning are supposed to represent how the V-pets looked too. It was a dot matrix style, and there are a mass of cubes....aka dots.
As far as invoking nostalgia goes, it was perfection. Loving the Koumi, and there was a bit of Taiora, Sorato, and even motherfucking Taito. Whoever the writers are, they certainly are aware of the ships.
My main complaint is not enough Jo, but I trust they know where they're taking him given the ending.
I wish they were in. I like ZekeGreymon better than WarGreymon because he still likes like a monsterous dinsaur rather than a humanoid thing.
Nah, it's pretty clear. There's a reason they're singling him out from the other 7 and the way he's acting IS contrary to what stood out from his character as a child that made Homeostasis pick him.
He'll kick start the trend and get all the others to have to realize that they have to do some sort of self growth.
Sora's is likely going to be roadblocked by her getting tragged into "love triangle" bullshit that was hinted at with her conflict about how to do both the game and concert.
Koushiro and Mimi I'm not certain of because they're both still pretty in tune with theirs but it'll also likely be resolved by whatever relationship things is going on with them.
Hikari and Takeru will just power up when the plot demands it like always but more than likely it'll have more connection to the 02 kids and their fate.
>Hikari and Takeru will just power up when the plot demands it like always but more than likely it'll have more connection to the 02 kids and their fate.
If that's the case, expect Angemon to fucking choke at the last second during some important fight.
>He seriously thinks the other kids will get their Ultimates
