apparently it's supposed to be 24 episodes, so assuming they keep up with the four-part movie trend, it'll be four more moviesIsn't this supposed to be 6 movies though, or has that changed? I can't see any announcement for when the supposed next three are supposed to come out.
Yeah, I just wonder when we're going to get an actual announcement of it though because right now only part 3 has a release date and that's all the way in September. I have a feeling we might be going all the way into 2018 before it's over.apparently it's supposed to be 24 episodes, so assuming they keep up with the four-part movie trend, it'll be four more movies
By that time, the fanbase may've grown sick of all things Adventure-related. If they don't step things up and deliver an amazing episode, tri will remain inferior to Tamers and Savers in my book. I know they're capable of pretty great things, I just want to see some cool things executed. The premise of the next episode, especially its focus on Koshiro and Takeru, greatly interests me, as they're two of my favorites from the original cast and we may see some extra things on Meikuumon as well.Yeah, I just wonder when we're going to get an actual announcement of it though because right now only part 3 has a release date and that's all the way in September.

Those are some really interesting points you've raised! As a fellow college student, I can definitely identify with what you've posted, trust me. Anyway, since I've enjoyed reading your ramblings, here's some of my own (if you're interested in some theories and opinions thrown into the mix):Kyuzeth I'm sure this is entirely subjective but I really like that this series is very slow-paced and character focused. This series always seemed to me to be aimed towards the older fans, and not meant to be standalone in any sense. It seemed like a series that grew up alongside its audience, and is aimed at people who were kids when they first watched Digimon, but are now adults and can appreciate a slower pace and long-form storytelling, and wanna see where these characters are because they've grown up right alongside them. As a college student in that crossroads of life myself, I find the themes of this story about growing up, deciding what kind of person you are going to be, what that means for your friendships, etc. to be very relatable and just very touching.
I would honestly be really disappointed if the show was something like Dragon Ball Super, which I do genuinely enjoy watching for what it is, but is just fanservice and fanfiction plots without much depth (whereas the original Dragon Ball Z was deceptively full of great character development and powerful themes). I know the other Digimon series always did a fantastic job at balancing action/plot and character development, and I can understand wanting more action and more Digimon fights because the name of the show is Digimon, but we are still always going to have those 6 other series (and the new one that's coming up) that use the classic Digimon formula. So I don't mind them doing something new and more adult with this series.
It's hard to get a good grasp on the opinions of the Digimon fanbase as a whole, considering it's so small these days, but it seems to be getting good reviews according to Wikipedia. I recently watched the trailer for the third film and the people in the comments seemed to be excited too. I'm in no way arguing that this means that it is good, I'm just responding to your speculation that people might lose interest over time. I think the history of cinema has shown us that long waits do more to build up hype than to kill it. This is just a few months, but most blockbusters take 2 or 3 years to get a sequel, just look at Star Wars, Marvel movies, etc., those movies just get bigger and bigger each time. I'm still hyped for the sequel to Godzilla that won't come out until I'm like in grad school or something, even though the original came out while I was still in high school. Sorry, I'm rambling.
Either way, I think you will get what you're looking for in the next film (still, it REALLY depends on whether or not it is still going to be 6 films or just the 3). The story has been building to a lot of things. When I re-watched it a few weeks ago I noticed quite a few things I didn't notice the first time, like the 02 Digidestined getting wiped out at the beginning (by Alphamon it seems), Huckmon showing up here and there, and Maki saying "the precious one", when only Alphamon was on the screen and Meikoomon wasn't. Although I don't know if that means she was really referring to Alphamon, maybe she was talking about Meikoomon but Alphamon was just covering her up. But Alphamon is always an important character wherever he shows up and he only even exists in times of great crisis, so putting him at the end of the first movie just gives me so much hope for escalation. The last time he showed up, in Digimon X-Evolution (which is an excellent movie, by the way), it was to save the entire Digital World and the near genocide of almost every Digimon. So putting him at the end of the first movie just gives me so much hope and excitement for escalation.
Mysteries like Ken being back and Huckmon running around are interesting too. We know really nothing about Huckmon in this story so far, but in the lore, his Mega/Ultimate form is Jesmon and he is a Royal Knight. Considering Alphamon has already appeared too, maybe we'll see more of the Royal Knights which honestly really excites me too, because in all of their appearances they've always had this moral dilemma that I've always found fascinating.
Yeah, I am rambling again, sorry lol. My main point is that I think if you have a paradigm shift to understand that it's not trying to be like the other series, and take it for what it is, you can see there is a lot of stuff to appreciate in this story. I don't think it's bad by any means even if it's way different from the traditional Digimon formula. That's just my opinion though.
I think if the Royal Knights are coming into this, the fact that we saw Omegamon at the end of the first movie and Imperialdramon at the end of the second could mean that Imperialdramon Paladin Mode might be coming into play eventually, maybe at some point where they rescue the 02 chosen (remember what I said about escalation). And he is the founder of the Royal Knights that supposedly went away after they were formed, so maybe his appearance will tie into some Royal Knight storyline. It wouldn't be the same exact Imperialdramon Paladin Mode but I dunno, I'm just playing connect the dots here with Royal Knights.theories
Thanks for the post or I would have never known it came out already!!! WTH INDEED such a tear jerker !!!despite some moments of toei.jpg quality issues, i have to say strongest part yet
ep 3 made me cry like a fucking bitch
I'm not a mod of this section, but I think it's fine to talk about.I'm not sure if we can discuss Appmon, but I have to say that it reminds me more of Tamers than Frontier or Xros Wars, which I love. It starts off slow like Tamers, but the story isn't that bad so far. It might become darker after ten to twelve episodes. I don't mind the "friendly" look of the lower-level Appmon, even though I appreciated the "hostile" appearance of the older Digimon designs.
Wait, there's finally subs of Appli Monsters?Has anyone been watching Digimon Universe? It's pretty trash so far, I wouldn't recommend it. Maybe it'll get better towards the latter half of the show but I'm not holding my hopes up, since so far it's about as bad as Digimon Hunter.
Edit: I can't read
