Default Digimon

So Digimon Adventure Tri looks pretty interesting, and like a lot of fun... But I've never watched Digimon before. Is this a sequel series to the original?

Anyone able to educate a little bit about the show in general? Is Tri something I could just jump into, or should I watch the older stuff first?

Thanks guys!

I haven't seen it, but I can say that it would be better to watch the original Digimon Adventure aka Digimon Digital Monsters(which includes the 1st 2 Seasons) first because it shows the same cast but older which yes makes it a sequel.

Thought this topic would be about Digimon on Blu-ray but it's the new series, so, I've read great feedback from new show although I've yet to see it myself. Not sure if I'll like the new season but gonna give it a shot.

Tri is a sequel to the first two seasons, Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02. Because this is currently only in Japan, I recommend watching the original Japanese versions of those, because the English dubs are pretty much treated like Saturday morning cartoons, and canged som plot-points.

Since Crunchroll grabbed Tri, does that pretty much kill any chance of a BD release in America? Not up to date on what it means when Crunchroll grabs a show and what it means for a physical release in NA.

Do they also have Home Video rights though? Or just streaming?

Not sure. I know they are streaming it but not sure if they have home rights.

Do other companies usually get home rights if Crunchroll grabs the streaming rights?

Yes with only one single exception coming to mind. Crunchyroll bags streaming rights and nothing else almost universally.

The biggest hurdle for Digimon Adventure Tri making it out on BD here is whether the property can successfully divorce itself (atleast partially) from the family-friendly image Saban gave it. The family market, as Saban sees it, has very little interest in Blu-rays (see Power Rangers' lone failed BD attempt). Hell, the first 3 Digimon series have had official subs for years (which are awful, as are Tri's), and they never even got a cheapo DVD release.

Tri has done very well on Crunchyroll (which they were very savvy to predict) and I don't doubt that changes the landscape a bit, but I think it's more likely that you'll see a TV dub, a bilingual broadcast on Netflix and Hulu, and a bilingual DVD release. In that order. I'd love to be wrong, though.

Hell, I'd be fine with a DVD release. I just hope we get some kind of home media release for Tri.

It'll happen. I am 100% confident it'll get, at the very least, a dub-only DVD here. I'm hopeful for a bilingual DVD, but a dub-only disc is an absolute shoe-in.

but really who knows since it's not a TV series, it's 6 theatrical films... it might be awhile before it makes it way to the US though, since the 2nd season of Fusion just ended a few months ago, 4 years after Japan, and there's been no word on if season 3 will come here yet either as far as I have heard.

I'd love it if they'd release them all on BD here, I'd take the editted version but if they did a new redub like Sailor Moon or even just used an uncut English dub from another country like Cardcaptor Sakura then that'd be even better. Would be great if they finally give us all those movies too! They were all dubbed, by the same company/with the same people as the series if I remember correctly, but never released in America. Digimon Fusion had a BD release planned in Germany but it turned out to be DVD only.

So true. I am still waiting to get movies 4-7 on DVD here. With them releasing all the seasons I really thought we'd get a movie collection or something but nothing. Really sucks as I love the movies. Especially the 2 Tamer movies and ROD.

I would first watch Digimon Season 1, which is, I think, a legendary romp across 52 episodes. Then watch Digimon Season 2, which has the same "digidestined" kids just a few years older...and also features a new bunch of kids. Not quite as good as S1, though.

Then watch season 3 with entirely new kids and pretty much entirely new characters. Season 3 is perhaps as good, and sometimes even better, than even S1.

Yes, yes, yes, yes.....this is all the English dub I'm referring to, but I love the humor that the Eng dubbers introduced into otherwise intensely dramatic and emotional scenes/situations that made N. America "Digimon" perhaps some of the best Eng-dubbed anime series ever done. Some of the Eng-dub writers are actually comics (aka from the comedy business). Great voice actors as well like Wendee Lee, Mona Marshall, Richard Epcar, R. Martin Klein, and Joshua Seth (Seth was the voice of Akira in the self-titled 2000 Eng-dub version of the legendary anime film from TMS).

Never really used crunchroll before but does anyone know when episode 1 parts 2-4 will be in HD. Finally got around to watching part 1 but would rather wait and see the rest in HD. Looked amazing at 1080p.

I bought the limited edition of Digimon Tri part 1 Blu-ray from Amazon Japan last year and it sadly contains no subs or anything.

Has there even been any words when there will be a official English release? I assume Saban will still own the rights to the home media release right? Still waiting for a Blu-ray release in English.

No word yet but I'm hoping someone picks it up for an English home video release and gives us a BD.

Maybe they are waiting till all 6 movies air first?

Yeah, I also wonder how they will air in the US or if they just get a straight release to Blu-ray etc.

Would be nice if we get a Blu-Ray release of Digimon The Movie.

How edited is the original Digimon series dub, in terms of cut scenes and whatnot?

I ask because Japan has seen a release of both Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02 now, it's possible that they'll continue to release the rest of the franchise in a similar manner. Would love a stateside release, but a butchered dub means it would be extremely difficult for a bilingual set to come out here.

To be fair the DVDs of the series took ages to be released so a Blu-ray release may take a while imo. I own the Japanese Blu-Ray of Season 1 and it is different in terms of how the English dub has been edited. I am also planning on getting Adventure 02 set once it is out.

Yeah, I'm still hoping we get movies 4-7 dubbed on DVD soon. Now that the seasons are out I'm still hoping they will give us the rest of the movies. Besides Our War Game all my favorites are unreleased. Huge fan of Revenge of Diaboromon and the Tamer movies.

I can maybe see Tri getting a BD release depending on who get's it but not seasons 1-4 or the first movie.
