What a disappointment the Thanksgiving event was. Just what we need, another fucking Adventure sequel. With how terrible Tri was I'm definitely going to skip this.



At least Survive looks like it could be okay even though I don't really like SRPGs.

Regarding yet another Adventure sequel, fully agreed.  Hopefully, it's only one movie this time (And as of this moment, it looks like that's what it's gonna be) and we also get a TV series that ISN'T Adventure.  Toei's overmilking that cow at this point, and quite frankly, I'm shocked that they're even doing so given that tri episode 5 got 1 star ratings on Amazon Japan and everything, which proves that even the Japanese fans are sick of it at this point.

As far as Bandai (And by extension also Bandai Namco Games) goes, however... they've been doing great with their Digimon stuff lately.  Digimon Survive being an SRPG will be a breath of fresh air given that they've only done one SRPG before in the past, and that's Anode / Cathode Tamer back in the WonderSwan days.  And they confirmed during that stream that we do have another Digimon Story game coming afterward.  On which note, don't even get me started on Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory; I'll be sitting here all day singing so many praises about that game that it's crazy.  Best Digimon game so far, PERIOD.

Of course, while not everyone's cup of tea, the 20th anniversary releases of the original Digimon virtual pets, specifically the Digital Monster Version 20th and Digimon Pendulum Version 20ths, are great too.  I have one of the original 20ths and both Pendulum 20ths, and they're really neato if you're into that kind of thing.  All of the original lineups are available, as well as unlockable characters which include the anniversary Digimon (Dracomon, Hackmon, and Zubamon on the original 20ths, and Ludomon on the Pendulum 20ths).  Safe to say, those 20th anniversary v-pets will appeal the most to people like me who know Digimon beyond the anime.  I was really happy to see Belphemon's entire line make the Pendulum 20th lineup for example; we don't see Phascomon, Porcupamon, and Astamon pop up enough.

...but yeah, I'm gonna stop my wall of text here.  Short version, Toei is failing so hard but Bandai is succeeding nicely.  Ignore the anime for now like I'm going to and enjoy everything else Digimon has to offer beyond the anime such as the video games and so forth, because that's all good stuff.  :)

I forgot I made this thread, but I'm going to bump it since I've been on a bit of a Digimon kick lately. It started with me picking up Digimon World on a whim and for the last week and a bit I've been going back and forth between stuff.

I'm currently at 30 something prosperity in Digimon World. I'll probably take a break for a while since my Angemon died, and I don't really feel like raising a new Digimon right now. I also played a bit of Digimon Anode Tamer since I saw Tag Tamers finally got a finished fan translation. I'll try to plow through that quick since it has been a while since I played it last, and then I'll move on to Tag Tamers.

And now to make this post actually anime related, I have started watching Digimon Savers. This is my favorite season, but this is my first time watching it subbed. It's been a while since I last watched it so I had forgotten how bad the animation could get early on. Hopefully the quality gets a bit better later on.

Ah, I see you're a man of culture as well; Savers is one of my favorite seasons, too! :) As for the animation quality, you're watching it subbed. The digital edits to the visuals that got made to the dub (You'll notice them when you see them) aren't a thing here, so those details won't look nearly as off as they were in the dub.

Anyway, Digimon stuff I've been doing as of late. I'm watching Digimon Adventure: (Which is actually a pretty good reboot, they changed a lot of stuff, too much to mention here), I watched Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna last night (Which while it has its flaws is still much, much better than Digimon Adventure tri., which is the one thing I was hoping it would be), and recently raised Magnamon X on my Digital Monster X3 Yellow. I'll be raising NoblePumpkinmon on the X3 Yellow closer to Halloween for obvious reasons.

I am currently waiting for more information on Digimon Survive (Aren't we all?), and also for my Wave 1 Digimon Pendulum Zs and Digivice: to arrive in November. As neat as the Digivice: looks (LEDs around the display and it has actual gameplay), the Pendulum Zs should be especially fun; they have mostly new Digimon, both completely new (10 in total; they're all great, but MarineKimeramon is probably my favorite) and introduced throughout the year before their reveal (Including Morphomon from Kizuna, whose Champion and Ultimate are established to be Hudiemon and Jewelbeemon which the movie didn't do; they haven't revealed her Mega yet though) alike, and Digimon that don't appear in v-pet lineups often (You want five of the Warrior Ten? Well guess what, you've got five of the Warrior Ten; the other five will definitely be in Wave 2), in their raisable lineups. The more well known Digimon are actually relegated to unlockable eggs on the Pendulum Zs (Wave 1's unlockable eggs feature Agumon, Agunimon, Gatomon, Armadillomon, and Wormmon; and yes, you can get Agumon -Bond of Courage- from the Agumon egg).

And speaking of Savers and the Pendulum Zs, my fingers are crossed so hard for the Chessmons to be on the Metal Empire Pendulum Z given that Gaomon's on the Nature Spirits Pendulum Z... those fellas absolutely need to be raisable on something.
