Cool! This is exciting news indeed!

With the significant gap between part 2 and part 3 of Tri I was wondering how Toei was going to bridge the gap with more Digimon media. A whole new season of Digimon anime, along with a video game and all the other accompanying merchandise, is most certainly welcome news.

These past few years have seen the Digimon franchise go from strength to strength. This is the perfect time to build upon that strength with a new anime.

It seems that more about Digimon Universe will be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show this year; I can't to find out more.

I'm guessing they want with the smartphone motif for the digivices in this anime. I'm hoping that they make this digimon anime more serious like on the level of Tamers and Savers, but not too serious like tri. is doing right now. I'm guessing from the app motif, digimon in that universe is some sort of game, rather a popular manufacture one like in Tamers, or a mysterious game that appears like the first season of Bakugan.

Also I would like them to have the same level system they had in Adventure, 02, Tamers, Savers, and the video games. They can introduce a new mechanic in the anime, but not mess it up like they did with DigiXros in the last digimon anime, that was a disaster!

Wishful thinking
How about they introduced very different version of previous digimon characters, like how Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is doing right now.
A different version of Taichi, Takato, Masaru, Yamato, Sora, Takeru, Hikari, Ruki, Touma, etc. that appears in their universe.

As many people have said, about the evolution thing, I noticed a pattern. Even numbered anime seasons had the funky stuff going on, the strange gimmicks.02 introduced armor level and jogress system, spent half the season collecting the armor eggs just to go "Oh hey we don't need these anymore, heres something else new.

02 COULD of kept the armor eggs relevant, making the perfect forms a combined armor. the Deviant art Artist NeoArchAngeon did this last year with is fan art, but say Veemon+Courage+Friendship= Perfect level form. Yes I know this would be an issue primarily due to Gato>Angewo, and the lack of a 2nd armor egg for Gato or pata, but why couldn't they let those 2 armors evolve ? or done something Like Pata+ HOpe =Pegas, Ange+ hope = new evo. Or just let Pegas/neferti evovle with some sort of plot device.

My main complaint with 02 is they spent half a season collecting something that then became irrelevant

Tamers being odd number returned to the straight linear evoltuion A>B>C>D ok sure they threw in A+Human=D as well but still over all it remained linear no real side stuff that later got ignored.

Frontier the 4th season, Major gimmick/weirdness- No partners, Also Frontier was our first step into disregarding levels. Agnimon who commonly is equated to a champion/adult had no problem with a Perfect Level Cerberumon, yet later on, Golemon, a Chap/adult, was to hard for the human Hybrids?

Savers our fifth series, we say funky stuff with the villains but the heros followed a linear A>B>C>D progression again.

Xros wars- Now hey look 6- even number and we got even funkier fun time.

Basically Even number = lets try something outside the box.

Now we have Tri which WOULD of been S7 back when it was announced as a series which would of made Applimonster S8 Even nubmer and we coudl expect crazy funky stuff. I know SOME people count Young Hunters as S7, but OFFICIAL episode count and such lists EP 1 of Young hunters not as Episode 1 but episode 55 or something like that. This is important because 02 ep 1 was listed as Episode 1, seems as if Young hunters should probably be counted as Part of S6.

Now is Toei going to count the Tri movie series as S7? putting Appli's status as officially S8 or will Appli be S7 and Tri just be officialyl regarded as movies? Yes i know it is technically movies but its a 6 movie series, and strea wise are being relased as episodes. Whcih makes it a bit grey.

I don't think we'll see a Xros type system, linear evolution makes more sense. However we may see app style Digi memories/Card slash type deal where they use apps to power mons up.

Perhaps transfer App abilities to mons? Stop watch function of a clock app? localized time freeze for X seconds. Think something effectively similar to Clock up in Kamen Rider Kabuto. A magnyfing glass might allow a mon to home in on a weak point easier? Or will it simply be X app allowed people to partner with Digimon, new features then become unlocked allowing one to power thier mons up, and or use abilitis themselves ( Skill crack from Devil Survivor games)

The project is aimed at young boys, and it is also getting a "digital kids card game," toys, a game, and a magazine, among other products.

The International Tokyo Toy Show 2016 will reveal more information about the project on Thursday.

Promising news, it looks like Toei and Bandai are going all out with Digimon Universe and its accompanying merchandise. Almost everybody has a smartphone today and that includes children. With strong backing already in place Digimon Universe might just resonate in a big way with smartphone users.

This is a chance for the whole Digimon franchise to achieve new heights of glory and become more popular than it ever has before!

Also, it looks like further news will be forthcoming shortly. It's already Thursday in Japan...

Judging from the artwork, this new digimon series is going to be light-tone. I would prefer it to be more serious like Tamers and Savers. I would have prefer the digimon partner be a rebrand of Agumon like they did with Savers, but give it more character development like they did in Adventure even more. I hope tht protagonist have more character development.

I noticed a pattern with protagonists They mostly have names that stats with "Ta" or "Da", the "Da" part in Daisuke's name and Masaru's surname, but if we're in first name basis than the first syllable of the name always ends with an "a". They always wear goggles (excluding Masaru who breaks trend). They are always are hot blooded (Except with Takato who doesn't like to fight, and Taiki who uses his head more). And their digimon partner are dragon-types or fire element.

You agree too that the evolution should be traditional and following the linear A>B>C>D progression.

Here's the first trailer for Digimon Universe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEcbj4NkNwo



These Appmon are a new breed of Digimon, born in the space between the Physical World and the Digital World. Although, each Appmon still use the 'mon' suffix at the end of their name. Like Gatchmon, the Digimon partner of this season's gogglehead.


Additionally, the latest Digivice is called an AppliDrive (or possibly AppDrive, depending on the promotional material), which seems to work in conjunction with smartphones and physical 'Appmon Plates'. There's also a 3DS game in the works; along with a ton of action figures and a collectible card game.

Very exciting developments so far. The sheer amount of merchandise alone makes this perhaps the biggest push for the Digimon franchise in over a decade. Clearly, Toei and Bandai already expect great things from Digimon Universe.
