Fun at a March Convention – Anime Festival Sydney 2020

-Mattiese- Saturday the 7th of March started out real poopy. I ripped my pants, just barely made the train, and the camera ran out of storage half way through our first interview; Kane and I had to walk to buy a new SD card, and then walk all the way back to the convention, and boy was I already tired. None of this was ideal, and I started worrying what else would happen to me throughout the rest of the day. It was about 12pm when we finally stepped foot into the convention, and I already felt as if my worries were lifted. Cosplayers, stalls, and panels are what made up Anime Festival Sydney 2020; and man was it enjoyable. The first thing we did was head to the “Live Drawing with Shingo Adachi” panel, and boy is that guy talented. Adachi drew a few popular Sword Art Online characters (as he was character designer on the series), while answering questions related to his work. At the end of the panel, they let fans ask …

Digimon Adventure Tri. D-3 Digivice Now Up For Pre-Order Courtesy Of Bandai

Heck, I could’ve been a Digidestined, you know? Had I believed hard enough…and taken enough mind-altering hallucinogenic drugs to the point wherein which I was locked in a perpetual state of disconnection from the real world. That could’ve been me saving the world, dammit! Still, despite my regrets, I do want to be a Digidestined, and thus I take alternative routes. Quite some time ago, Bandai released a “proplica” (prop/replica) of the original Digivices held by Tai and Matt of Digimon Adventure. These Digivices, different from the working video game Digivices, light up and play sounds recognisable from the original series and also, because of it’s release, from the new set of films; Digimon Adventure Tri. Well, because they sold so darn well, Bandai are planning on releasing another version of those Digivices, this time though they will be modeled after the devices seen in the series’ second season. You know, with Davis, and Ken, and Cody, and T.K., and Kari…again. That one! Those Digivices, also known as the D-3, have now been put up on …

Digimon Adventure Tri. Hits North American Cinemas This September

Now, reader; what is better than a Digimon Adventure Tri. official English dub release? The answer; a theatrical release of said English dub! Film Distribution company Eleven Arts have come together with Toei Animation for not only an English dub of the series of movies but to detail plans on their theatrical release throughout North America, of course, starting with the very first of the films; Reunion. It is clear to both companies that there are still fans of the franchise floating around in the West, and it seems as though they’re more than willing to, for lack of a better phrase; give a dog a bone. Working with Fathom Events, a cinema-centric company that organises events for specialty films, Eleven Arts have revealed that they will be hosting one-time screenings of the movie across 300 North American theatres on the 15th of September, but if you cannot make it to the one-night showing, do not stress; Eleven Arts also have plans to give the film a proper theatrical release soon after that of the …

Toei Animation Releases Second Preview For Digimon Adventure Tri: Determination

While most, if not all, Digimon fans living around the world are focused on the recently-released Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth courtesy of Bandai Namco Games, Toei Animation thought it would be a good idea to sneakily release another preview for the upcoming Digimon Adventure Tri film Determination. The second in a series of six films, Determination focuses heavily on that of Jo Kido and Mimi Tachikawa alongside their digital pals Gomamon and Palmon. Mostly shrouded in mystery, it looks as though this second film will feature the Digimon Emperor as it’s main antagonist, despite the fact that, years earlier, his reign on the Digital World was thwarted and he joined the second generation of DigiDestined as Ken Ichijouji, who you may all know is the partner of Wormmon. Seemingly controlled by the Digimon Emperor is that of Imperialdramon who, although scary enough as he already is, looks fearsome under the dark control of this mysterious but deja vu-inducing hero. Determination will mark the very first time both Gomamon and Palmon’s Mega evolutions will be shown …

Digimon Adventure Tri Part Two: Determination First Preview Trailer Released

If you’re Digimon fans who have not yet watched the first film of the Digimon Adventure Tri series, well…I’m very disappointed in you, and that includes my fellow writers Kane Bugeja and Luke Halliday who also have not found the time to experience possibly one of the best pieces of Digimon media in the modern day. It’s fine though, you all have time to catch up before the second movie, Determination, gets it’s release, which has just been announced for March this year alongside the reveal of a preview trailer that only serves as fuel to the digital fire burning in my soul. March 12th is when the next movie will get a theatrical release across the great country of Japan, with Crunchyroll possibly picking it up for legal Western distribution sometime after. I mean…it’s what they did with the first movie, an educated assumption is that they’ll do the same with the second. Unlike the first film, Determination will not entirely focus on the character of Yamato (Matt) and Taichi (Tai). No, this film will …

Digimon Adventure Tri: Reunion – Second Teaser Trailer Released

Chances are, if you grew up with Digimon…you’ll never grow out of Digimon. How do I know this? Because literally everybody I know of that loved Digimon as children still have great feelings for it now, that’s why the prospect of these Digimon Adventure Tri films is so exciting! Now let me ask you a question: Who was the first enemy Digimon the DigiDestined and their partners faced off against when they discovered each other in the Digital World? If you said Kuwagamon, you’d be right. If you said “Who cares! Let’s just see the new trailer!” you’d also be right. Digimon Adventure Tri’s first movie, subtitled “Reunion“, sees the original DigiDestined crew, well…reunite with their long lost digital pals. Fact is; troubles not too far around the corner. Before the group even get a chance to fully embrace each others’ company, they’re attacked by none other than Kuwagamon. The same Kuwagamon? Perhaps, but unconfirmed. Agumon, like he did in the very beginning, springs to action and takes on the gargantuan beetle once again, ending …

New Video Shows What The Digimon Adventure Tri Complete Selection Animation Digivice Can Really Do

About a week ago, I brought you news of Premium Bandai’s latest and greatest piece of Digimon merchandise; The Digimon Adventure Tri Complete Selection Animation Digivice. Yes, the name IS unnecessarily long, but that doesn’t make this product any less exciting, that’s for sure! Though it does make it hard to write a concise article title. Over in Tokyo, the powers at be held their very of Digimon Adventure Festival wherein which they celebrated everything Digimon Adventure, much like what the event’s title states. During this festival, Bandai elaborated on just what it is this new device can do by releasing a full video literally showing what it can do! Contrary to what was once thought about this Digivice, it is unlike the 15th Anniversary version announced months ago which actually features a video game function much like the Digivices released all those years ago. Despite the Complete Selection Animation Digivice not being “playable”, it does have a set of functions unique to this “proplica”. If you’d read the previous article you’d already know that …

See An Iconic Battle Revisited In The First Full Trailer For Digimon Adventure Tri Part One

Over this past weekend, Tokyo held it’s very own Digimon Adventure Festival that, as a Digimon fan and a guy who writes about Japanese pop culture, I was very surprised to find out about. Never before had I heard of the Digimon Adventure Festival, but I’m damn glad it exists because, thanks to it, we (the fans) have been given a nice look at the first of six Digimon Adventure Tri movies through a full trailer rather than more teasers, which I couldn’t handle for much longer. With a distinct lack of dialogue, the trailer features the movie’s theme song “Butter-Fly” by Koji Wada; the theme song of the original Japanese dub of the series which will make a return for the new films. It also features scenes from the first film, obviously, that show the re-igniting of a battle between our hero Greymon and the mysteriously evil Kuwagamon which you’ll remember was the first big battle in the original Digimon Adventure Anime series, going down in history as one of the most iconic Digimon …

Bandai Premium Reveals The Digimon Adventure Tri Complete Selection Animation Digivice

Don’t be confused by the long name, and don’t be confused by the product itself, this is not a crazy knock-off toy, and this is NOT the same Digivice model Bandai announced quite some time ago in celebration of the franchise’s 15th anniversary…this product is on an entirely different level.  Most fans of Digimon, back when it first burst onto the scene, got the rare chance to grab themselves one of the original Digivices. I, unfortunately, was a little late to the party, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the snacks and drinks. A while back, Bandai revealed that they will be releasing two new versions of the original Digivice; one modeled after Tai’s unit and the other modeled after Matt’s. Those, as mentioned above, were developed and released in celebration of the franchise’s 15th anniversary. While they did have some connection to brand-new series of movies titled Digimon Adventure Tri, they were mostly brought back to build hype and excite those of us who were fans long ago. As if that weren’t enough to get …

We’re Going Digital – New Digimon Figurines Revealed For Franchise 15th Anniversary

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Fifteen years later, Digimon: Digital Monsters is still going as strong as ever and while it’s presence here in the West isn’t as solid as it was back in the late 90’s, over in Japan it remains as one of the top monster taming franchises of all time. It’s no lie that other series’ similar to it like Pokemon and Yokai Watch are indeed taking over in terms of popularity, but Digimon still has one hell of a large fan base, and I feel as though it always will! At least…I hope it does. Most fans of Japanese pop culture will know that we’re currently celebrating the series’ 15th Anniversary, which seems as though it has been going on for longer than you’d usually celebrate something of this type. Because of this momentous occasion, many manufacturers out there have decided that now is the perfect time to release some brand-new merchandise lines. Smart! Ever since the anniversary celebrations began we’ve seen things like new figurines, …

Digimon Adventure Tri – First Anime Preview Released

It’s taken months of hype-building and a release delay but today marks a wonderful time in the lives of all Digimon fans the world over because we’ve just been gifted the very first look of what the actual Anime production is going to be like! Up until now all we saw were teaser images and videos that worked very well to get the hearts of the fans pumping, but left them wanting so much more…I suppose that’s the whole point of a teaser, right? It doesn’t matter! When I comes to Digimon, I’m the type of guy who wants all or nothing! The great country of Japan has been hosting a television marathon of the original Digimon Adventure Anime which ended with the preview that I’ve provided for you just below this post. Shocking audiences and causeing some to even break down and cry, this preview shows off the entire main cast, their Digimon pals, and the voice talents who will be lending their mastery to their respective characters. It was also revealed that this …

This New “Digimon Adventure Tri” Promotional Image Looks Oddly Familiar

We’re now in March; the third month of the new year. This means, in only a months time, the new season of “Digimon Adventure” will begin airing and long-time fans of the series will finally be able to catch up with their long lost friends; the original Digidestined. Just incase hype for this new addition to the already expansive “Digimon” lineage wasn’t already at an all-time high, a new official image from the upcoming Anime has surfaced just over the past couple days and what we’re seeing is all too familiar. To the right of this article, as I’m sure you already know, is the newly released promotional image from “Digimon Adventure Tri” which shows the main cast of the Anime just “hanging out” in and around an abandoned train car. This is not the first time we’ve seen something like this from the original Digi-crew, in fact, we’ve seen this train car quite a few times over the series and it only ever seems to get more decrepit. I suppose that’s what it is …

Digimon Adventure Tri – Taichi And Agumon Full Character Designs Revealed

Let’s start from the top: So far, what we’ve been shown regarding the latest “Digimon” Anime instalment “Digimon Adventure Tri” isn’t actually that much. We’ve seen a silhouette of the main cast, we’ve seen a confusing promotional image that pretty much hid most of their full designs by interlocking each of the characters, and we’ve seen a lot of teasers that make you think you’re going to see something awesome but instead your just left with the teaser. Hence the title “teaser”. It’s all starting to change though thanks to the latest issue of Shueisha’s V-Jump Magazine which has finally revealed, in full view, the designs of both Taichi Kamiya and Agumon. Now the first big thing you’ll pick up on is that, surprise, they both look very different from the first season. Yep, that’s because Taichi is a few years older and has been designed by an entirely different person. Ever heard of the hit sci-fi movie “Cencoroll” which was basically developed by one sole person? Well that one sole person, Atsuya Uki, is …

The official countdown website for the upcoming 15th anniversary anime series Digimon Adventure Tri has revealed a key visual art featuring the complete cast of digidestined now clearly older yet still filled with that youthful spirit that embodied these characters during the shows original run 15 years ago.
