Hey it’s Deven and I’m coming at you with a new section for the blog, Anime News!
It’s simple. I find some news on some anime, manga, seiyuu, or anything anime related and bring it here for you!
For the first one I’m bringing up that nostalgia feels for those of you born and raised in the 90s and early 2000s. This year is Digimon’s 15th anniversary!
And to celebrate they’re heading back to the old days by releasing premium Digivices based around the ones from the first season! The models they have are the orange and blue Taichi ‘Tai’ Kamiya model. Note: In the original Japanese, Tai’s and subsequently his younger sister Kari’s last names were Yagami. And the blue and grey Yamato ‘Matt’ Ishida model. The original Digivices were released in 1999 so it’s a good way to see how the franchise has grown. (Or withered up and died from other people’s opinions) Check out the old models. Wow they’ve come far in 15 years. Just like the old days you’ll be able to pick from all the Digimon of the first season like Agumon, Biyomon, Gabumon, Gatomon, Gomamon, Palmon, Patamon, and Tentomon. They can even digivolve all the way to their Mega Forms, something that’s only been seen in side material! Fan favorite, Wizardmon will also be playable, and Diablomon will appear as a boss. Of course you battle with your friends as well so it’s fun for everyone! Bandai Premium is taking Pre-orders from August 1 – September 30 with the toys shipping out in December. Each Digivice will cost 9,990 yen (about $98). Catch up with all the seasons of Digimon by buying the cool DVDs! Digimon: Digital Monsters – The Official First Season Digimon Data Squad Season 5 Digimon Frontier: Season 4 Digimon: Digital Monsters – The Official Second Season Digimon Tamers: Season 3 Thoughts: I love the fact that Digimon made it to their fifteen anniversary! Especially since Pokemon has always had the hearts of children. If I manage to pull out the money, I’ll definitely the Tai model for my collection! So until more news, Later Days
