Trying to steer away from the spammage going on the Pokemon thread about Digimon I decided to start up this thread.

Go ahead and discuss Digimon here. Whatever you like except for unreasonable attacking of it and other members who like or dislike it.

This is not 'Unreasonable' and I do respect fans of the franchise...

I did watch a few episodes as a child and didn't really get into the series.

Eh, I didn't at first either because it seemed so... corny.

But later on I learned that Saban Entertainment are to blame for making Tai and Matt big jerks, Joe a wuss and Mimi a Barbie girl.

I loved the Digimon TV series more than Pokémon. I think they got better and better until Digimon Tamers, which is my favourite, then got drastically worse. I don't watch the new seasons, but I still love the first three.

I could write a Novel of how much I like Digimon.

Digimon Adventures 01 and 02 are still the best.
Digimon Tamers is acceptable (I fell in love with Renamon>Sakuyamon Digivolve:hug:)

It's so much better than Pokémon,srsly.
It has always a comprehensible Story.
(e.g. Season 1 - they get more or less into the Digital World,because the Digimon caused droughts, snow storms, severe weather on Earth which caused a hole into the border between Real and Digital world.
Everything is explained during the seasons,who made the Digital World and who programmed the Digimon etc.

It's just bad,that the Digital world changes from season to season (except Season1 and 2):(

Well, there's a connection between Adventure 01/02 and Tamers. Unless you're die-hard and own the original Wonderswan Digimon games, you might not know this, but Ryo in Tamers was actually born in the Adventure world. Listen closely as this story, while I have condensed it, will still take a bit of space.

Ryo cameos in both Adventure and Adventure 02, and the Wonderswan games expand upon that. Basically what happens is at the beginning, a dying Kimeramon and a dying Machinedramon (the same Machinedramon WarGreymon slices into pieces in the last arc of Adventure) DNA Diivolve into Millenniumon, and he takes the original Digidestined hostage. Ryo partners up with Agumon and the two eventually defeat Millenniumon and free the Digidestined, but he comes back and Azulongmon brings Ryo and Ken into the Digital World. The two defeat Millenniumon again but as he explodes, Millenniumon releases Dark Spores aimed at Ryo. Ken gets in the way and takes one to the neck (setting up the events of 02). Even later, Ryo is forced into a tournament by the Digimon Gods, pitting himself against several Digidestined including Tai, Willis etc. After winning the Tournament, Ryo is sent to Moon=Millenniumon's castle where the two battle again, but Moon=Milleniumon sends Ryo into the past while he goes into the future. Here, Ryo finds Monodramon and ENIAC, the computer that created the Digital World. Partnering with Monodramon, Ryo went to the future to confront ZeedMillenniumon, who revealed that he was Ryo's true partner. Monodramon forced a DNA Digivolution between him and Millenniumon, creating Cyberdramon, and Ryo then decided to leave the Adventure world for the Tamers world.

I wanna play those Wonderswan games. They should make more based on the Adventure/02 anime, rather than Tamers all the time...

That song was re-used in seasons 2 and 3, but with variations to the 'lyrics'.

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYYY!!! A Digimon thread! :yah:

I absolutely LOVE the first two series! (the rest are meh for me) One of the first anime series I watched as a kid, and I still rewatch it once a year! Ah the memories.... :')

Why didn't they put these on the movie soundtrack?

We are talking of what was once Saban Entertainment. They figured we'd only want the songs, not the powerful BGM used in the movie and the show. Hence them giving it out to Maverick records, those behind The Matrix - Music from the Motion Picture (featuring only the songs). Unfortunately they seem to have been rather amateurish in regards to soundtrack releases - that attitude towards it is a fast-track to bootlegging, and there will always be demand for a bootleg if there is no official soundtrack available.

I did contact Udi Harpaz. Unfortunately he's unable to release more of the score that what's on his site due to liscensing reasons. I don't know if we can get hold of Shuki Levy, and the other composer, Amotz Plessner, has a website but no samples. I have a feeling Udi's answer would be universal, despite another anime dub having its soundtrack unofficially released.

Currently, Disney holds the rights. Who knows, maybe they'll be a bit more forgiving.

ultima espio
07-09-10, 20:16
Well actually, I read a while ago that Disney don't have the rights to the music in some Countries, which is why it hasn't been on in the UK for years. I think the only places they can show it now is Japan and Canada.

I would like the BGM from the first Season, that was really nice:o

Smog
07-09-10, 20:19
Thanks for the links at least, guys. All this licensing madness seems to have resulted in most of the music falling into a legal black hole of unavailability. Oh well.

ggctuk
07-09-10, 20:21
Allegedly they used some of the BGM from the canned Saban series "Masked Rider" in season 1. Having never seen Masked Rider, I cannot verify this.

I'd love to get my hands on the Season 2/3 music.

One could probably put together a small promo score from this stuff.

EDIT: I'm glad Michael Reisz sang that in his 'true' voice rather than trying to sing in Matt's voice.

That's on there too, near the bottom. I can't quite bear to listen to its awfulness all the way through, however. In the original they used 'I Wish' from the credits. Much better. :p

08-09-10, 09:05
I really do wish we could get hold of Shuki Levy. Thorsten Laewe might have released his Digimon Savers music, so I don't see why Shuki can't get Disney to allow him to do the same.

08-09-10, 09:43
They're broadcasting Digimon Savers on KiX! but Frontier has yet to see the light of day here. They stopped releasing Digimon games in the Reion 2 area after Digimon World 4 as well. None of the newer movies have been broadcasted here either. I only saw Revenge of Diaboromon on YouTube.

I saw some episodes of Frontier there as well. Not really impressed by it. And sadly Paul St. Peter failed to replicate his performance of Cherubimon the same as he did in the movie. His movie Cherubimon voice was much more imposing that his Frontier Cherubimon voice. But then again he was also voicing Diaboromon there too.

I've gotten through some of the movies that were never shown over here in the UK. I think Disney have done a bit better than Saban in some respects, however in others they still suck (IE censorship of violence).

I have to wonder why the animators decided to redesign Greymon and MetalGreymon again:

Let's hope if it happens to get dubbed, some of my favourite characters have their original VAs return, such as Sora, Kari.

Funimation didn't. I was using them as an example of my statement that bad VO choices aren't limited to Saban.

As for the music, it's a complicated tangle. I suspect they could probably use the themes but not the stuff previously recorded.

If it might only be the themes due to copyrighted materia being all over the place, then it could be like Power Rangers once again because I think the music rights where all over the place itself. Like when Disney had Power Rangers, they didn't even have the rights for the Mighty Morphin's theme, which can be noticed in a special set in Operation Overdrive.

Off the top of my head, there's Clamp's Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle and xxxHolic, FLCL, Love Hina, the Negima anime Ouran High School and Steins;Gate.

I wouldn't know for certain. I have researched Digimon's music thoroughly (though my knowledge of what goes where is largely kudos to a guy named sulix) so I can tell you that this is indeed the case with Digimon: it's why they had to use Frontier's theme when they brought over Revenge of Diaboromon.

Hope it is, because Rumble Arena is one of my favourite games on the PlayStation. Still it's good to see the games coming back to the west.

If it does well enough - and I have reason to believe that it will if they publicise it well enough - then it might encourage them to bring the other games over to the West.

The Japanese version said "Ohayo gozaimasu, Onii-chan" ("Good morning, big brother"), suggesting it's Hikari saying that line but they omitted this from the English posting. Interesting that at 17, Taichi still has his trademark hairstyle, but it seems to have shrunk somewhat.

According to Wiki (yeah I know not one of the most accurate of sources), he is once again active, and has been since 2011.

Will the anime have all 8 Digimon Dark Digivolve?

http://www.kdramastars.com/articles/42755/20141006/digimon-adventure-anime-2015-release-date.htm

I have to say, those look pretty badass. We've all seen two of those Dark Digimon before (BlackWarGreymon was a significant antihero in the latter part of Adventure 02 and BlackMetalGarurumon, while not having appeared in an anime, has already been established. Oh, and so has Omnimon Zwart, a jet-black version of Omnimon), and we know how Dark Digivolution is brought about, so for it to happen to all 8, something bad is going to happen.

It also looks like they're harkening back to Adventure, which looks to me like they are possibly looking to bypass Adventure 02. Or, there will be some sort of altered history resulting in a new timeline. After all, they've messed with time before. Who knows what the events of Fusion did to the worlds?

Plus, they're looking at March 2015. Given that the announcement came in English, I wonder if they'll do a Sailor Moon Crystal and release simultaneously. Which means they've probably already started tapping the English cast up. I'll ask Lex Lang at MCM in two weeks.

You missed an important part of that too:

Bandai Namco are also promoting the anime for English speaking fans as well. But as we all know, they are no stranger to this show as it was also a big hit in America.

Well i meant subbed. I didn't know the difference between subbed and dubbed.

Judging by this, Kari is probably in Odaiba Junior High, the same Junior High Tai went to in 02. It's also the first time I have ever seen Kari wear a skirt.

I hope we can see them properly soon. I do expect other characters to change: Matt and Joe need haircuts.

I hope their school uniforms aren't their main outfits like the Adventure crowd (with the obvious exception of TK & Kari) wore in 02 >.< Kari would just not look right wearing something that's not pink and yellow.

It is likely to be the case that she will be wearing the green Odaiba uniform. I take your point and add an additional one: she doesn't look right wearing a skirt either.

Any color of the uniform would be fine for them to wear as long as it's not yellow.

I got Lex Lang's autograph on my copy of Digimon: The Movie (he even did a bit of WarGreymon for me). Sadly I forgot to ask if he knew anything about Adventure 3, though.

Of course Gatomon will look the same. Well at least she should look the same, because the same Digimon hardley look any different from each other unless it's a different version. For example Agumon X looks different from Agumon, and that it has different digivolutions compared to the normal version of Agumon.

I forgot to mention: while I was there, I popped over to the Bandai Namco stand a few times to play Digimon All-Star Rumble. It was pretty fun to play and while I won't be buying it on day one, I will be buying it this side of Christmas.

Its just like your standard fighting games but you can collect pick ups in the battle arena, and that you can digivolve to one of the Digimon's next forms for a short time.

Here hopefully this might show you

It's like that, yes, but in full 3D instead of 2.5D. You couldn't ring out in the stage that they had there, though.

The thing is though, not all stages were open. In this new one , do you play Digimon on their own, or are they ones from the anime like Rumble Arena?

They're voiced by the same voice actors, if that's what you mean, but from what I played, there's no mention of the DigiDestined/Tamers.

By ring out, I mean the stage geometry could have allowed for ring outs but there's invisible walls preventing that.

Thought so. I'm sure I saw an image which had him and Marcus in it. I might finally cosider in watching the show, because I'm interested to know what he was doing in the Xros Wars universe.

Yeah Omnimon appears late in the story. Also it would be good to see him once again in Adventure, especially that he was the first DNA digivolution.
