Toei has appointed you as the creator for the next Digimon series. After the turds that were Frontier, Savers, and Xros Wars, you are tasked with returning the franchise closer to its original glory of Adventure. However, this series will take place in a different universe entirely than Adventure and 02, so no sequels. You also MUST implement at least two mechanics that haven't been done before in order to make it unique (02 had the eggs, Tamers had the human-digimon fusions, Frontier had the spirits, etc). Your goal is to create a successful series that encaptures a whole new generation of merchandise-hungry children and pre-teens, while simultaneously appealing to those with nostalgia about the series of old.
How do you do it?
Why was the 4th season the best?
because shit actually got done, and then it got real
That's actually a really tough question. Something I, myself have been wondering.
series dealing directly with digimon lore
MC's digimon will be Dorumon
>Your goal is to create a successful series
I make it Pokemon
the only good ones were the original (indigo league), orange islands, and best wishes.
It was pretty good until the second havr where the two main guys were the only ones who ever transformed and they lost every single time until the last boss.
Even after the mega forms came in Adventure the other kids still did shit. Fucking TK beat Piedmon.
He said successful with children and pre-teens.
Guess what all those series were?
no fuck you frontier was bad
Second half*, fuck me.
Also Dorumon is going to be the weakest starting digimon in the series and will be the slowest to evolve, naturally the MC will be beta too completely the opposite of all previous MCs.
Pretty much like Patamon once he does evolve he will be the strongest motherfucker there is
>frontier, savers, xros
>not a turd
I support this if it's the Dorumon -> Dorugamon -> Dorugreymon -> Alphamon route
a big reason that the once cultural phenomenon faded into obscurity right before the 3rd gen games and is only now starting to recover from, right. thanks for reminding me.
it was a distant third, sure, but it was better than those other three.
adventure >> tamers >>>> 02 > xros wars > fronteir >>>> savers
since we done psychological, super mech, battle shounen, and toku
the natural route would be mahou shoujo
Remake the original. It's an alternate universe because in the end Tai NTR's Matt
OP's thread was too good for /a/.
It was DigiDestined to fail.
I'd basically make an even more fucked up version of tamers. It would start out very milquetoast and generic before getting 2dark4u.
If I had to add two mechanics, one would be an upgrade system, sort of like the cards from tamers, except permanent. What the protags wouldn't realize is that they are changing not only the physical forms of their digimon and their abilities, but also their personalities.
The second mechanic would be some bullshit armor upgrades to sell toys or something. This is a fun question OP.
Your opinion is different but I'll respect it. 02 was a complete mess that only ever gets ranked higher than dead last out of nostalgia.
ooh ooh i like this
>Izzy is experimenting one day or some shit and accidentally stumbles into an alternate universe where the digidestined actually represent their crests
>Tai gets the courage to ask Sora out
>Matt supports him even though he likes her too because friendship
>Sora isn't a depressive cunt and actually embraces her love for Tai
>Joe has a level head and always has good plans, becoming Mr. Reliability
>Mimi is a homebody instead of a spoiled brat, becoming the embodiment of sincerity
>TK always shows up just in time to save the day, giving everyone hope
>Kari carries around a death note and mumbles to herself while always searching her surroundings for people that aren't there because she is Light
>Old Izzy stays exactly the fucking same because he always had knowledge to begin with
>New Izzy is a dumb shit but gets "taken care of" quietly in episode 1
Which series are genuinely worth watching? Despite loving Digimon as a franchise the only series I've watched fully are 01 and 02. I keep hearing Tamers is great and I don't really remember it so I might start there, what about everything that came afterwards?
Tamers if great, Frontier is meh, didn't watch the rest.
Personally I liked fronteir but quite a few people hate it..
Savers is good, also nice how the MC isn't a 5th grader, I think he's like in grade 12 or something.
Xros wars is good but don't watch hunters
If you are a true fan you'd watch all except maybe 02
if you are casual just watch Adventure and Tamers
The first half of Tamers is kind of generic and not exciting. The second half is heavily inspired by Evangelion, it actually scared me when I was younger. It's still far and away my favorite.
/a/ is extremely split on which series are better than others, but tamers is usually up there. starts out generic but once the shit hits the fan around episode... 34 i think? then it gets real dark real fast, as far as digimon goes. and it's all the more awesome for it. if you're even mildly paying attention you can tell it was influenced by someone who loved NGE
I didn't watch Frontier, it sounded dumb. There are no digimon partners, and instead the digidestined fuse with spirit armor things that turn the kids themselves into powerful digimon. shit is weird. Some people REALLY liked it, some thought it was meh.
I can't comment on Savers or Xros Wars because by that time I had grown out of or given up on Digimon, so I don't know much of anything about them. Most people in these threads usually say both were subpar, though.
Yeah that fits the general consensus I've gathered already. I'll watch Tamers then. I remember seeing both it and Frontier on morning television while I was younger, but I never watched enough of them to get the full picture. I haven't seen anything past though Though I have played almost every game. Thanks guys
Tamers was written by the guy who did Lain and has a lot of lovecraft shit going on.
Frontier is solid until Cherubimon is beaten.
Never seen Xros or Savers.
Frontier has the best evolution song at least:
>this year will be the 15th anniversary of Adventure
>It would start out very milquetoast and generic before getting 2dark4u.
yeah that can't go wrong at ALL...
>hey timmy its only 8 on a friday, there's no school tomorrow so why are you already going to bed?
>i gotta get up early to watch DIGIMON mommy, it's so awesome!
>okay sweetie if that's what you want. sweet dreams honey
>the next morning
>mom comes out of her room to see timmy staring blankly at the television, which is turned off
>timmy? is something wrong?
>timmy's head slowly turns towards his mother with big tears in his eyes and running down his face, but has a huge creepy smile on
>augh!? timmy? are you alright? what's going on? did something happen?
>mommy... mommy... i want my mommy... timmy is kill... no more... mommy...
>TIMMY PLEASE WHATS WRONG what happened to you!? who did this!
>it's the digimon mommy... digimon is kill... i don't want to watch this show anymore mommy... digimon is kill...
but hey what do i know, breaking some poor kids might be fun, right?
Where is all this shit taste coming from? Are your nostalgia goggles on so tight that they're cutting off circulation to your brains? Or is it that you're jealous that you'll never never ride a flying agumon to punch out the god of the digital world?
What can I say, the shows I remember most fondly are the ones that used to scare me senseless. Just like in pic related here >>101122898
shit I know I'm supposed to hate dubbed anime but when I was a kid THIS was AWESOME (and one of the main reasons cool kids watched digimon instead of pokemon)
I've never watched any of the later series though, if I rewatch any of this, should I watch the subs or dubs? maybe both? is one objectively better than the other, or is it a matter of preference?
Subs are definitely better, like pretty much any other show. The dub is kind of fun for all of the terrible jokes and nostalgia, but it can undercut some major moments of the series, especially in later seasons.
but anon, in Savers the protag didn't WEAR goggles.
If you're watching to feel nostalgic, go dub. If you want to see whats different between the two, watch sub.
also dub soundtrack >>> original, aside from the Wada stuff
I find it funny that Tamers is sandwiched right between him writing Hellsing and Texhnolyze.
Having recently watched Adventure, I'd go with the sub. There's really nothing the dub does better other than nostalgia. That said, dual audio is pretty easy to find
>That said, dual audio is pretty easy to find
Meanwhile, no Zoids subs.
Holy shit fucking Zoids. I completely forgot that existed, is IT still good?
Fuzors a shit. The 2005 season was average.
yo who's the guy on the far right? i don't remember him being the protag of any of them.
I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. All I remember is watching it on TV years ago. I'll look into it
Ryo. Hes in games I think, amd made cameos in 02 and Tamers.
>and made cameos in 02 and Tamers
>in 02 and Tamers
they are supposed to be different continuities entirely.
Cameo. It does not imply any continuity.
i'd just make a season 2 of tamers and be praised by fans everywhere i go
Explained in the games or some shit.
Implement collectible trinkets which give new abilities/evolutions like in Kamen Rider.
Kids love that stuff.
But dont make them rings. Those were shit. Some medals/usb drives would be best.
add trap and loli
Change name to "lolimon-san"
hey mommy let me buy this toy i saw on my digimons
>looks at package
this... this doesn't look right johnny, i think they packaged this wrong. why not get something else?
Does that go left to right?
What do you think, genius?
Adapt Re:Digitize Decode and make it so that MC's Digimon partner is cursed with a ridiculously short lifetime but is able to reincarnate into any egg possible.
There are chips that save the partner's memory from the last evolution, so it is used to achieve stuff such as fusions and general powerups.
I've been reading nothing but manga for days straight fuckwad
>Matt ntr'd Tai
I read everything right to left to begin with too, but it's not hard to work out. Chill out and have an 01 wall.
>there are no digimon
>there are just many different "species" of lolis that come in different colors/hairstyles and have special powers
>you may only keep one, that one is special to you, and can evolve into a superloli to battle other lolis with
yes, yes, yes fucking yes
i don't even like dfc but i would totally watch that.
>just finding this out now
welcome to the party genius
>kabuterimon, the best 01 at any stage period
>getting shafted like that
fuck you, not saving.
Frontier was godly but it didn't feel like digimon
Kabuterimon's my favourite too. The ones I have with him in them are too large. Sorry.
I only like this idea if it means that due to power creep it becomes necessary at some point for his partner to be able to evolve, so that he's given a final god-tier chip that negates the whole short lifespan thing. Your idea would be good for mixing things up in the early parts, but would become far too cumbersome instead later on.
sausage ga you dirty f/a/g00ts; can't even come up with one original or interesting idea (to say nothing of good).
>the year is 2001
>the digi world is a beautiful place that is separated into a large number of digi-nations
>the digimon of each nation have their own quirks but travel about in peace;
>with the exception of one single shit-hole digi-nation full of pedophile digimon and loser faggot beta asshole digimon, all the other digi-nations are great
>the digimon spend their days being creative and whatnot
>but then, one day, a deadly digi-virus begins spreading
>virus contaminates the digimon, it makes them feel great, but at the same time makes them into mindless face-zombies
>face-zombies spread their contagion across the digi-realm, everywhere they go, they destroy creativity and make everyone there into mindless drones
>sensing the doom of the digi-world, a handful of digimon escape into the real world by exploiting a bug
>despite the fact the majority of the world's internet users are in China, US, and you'repoor, the digimon wind up in japan
>the small handful of digimon are told by their elder digimon to seek some chosen one from the human realm. They are told he carries with him a distinct red jewel
>they run into young comp-sci student Hiroyuki Matsumoto who, despite not being the chosen one, agrees to help the digimon find the chosen one
>MC then travels with digimon in tow, solving puzzles and whatnot in an attempt to discover the chosen one with the red jewel
>meanwhile, the face-virus has completely overtaken the digi-world and is now seeping into the real world
>MC and friends fight against the face-zombies using vanilla digi-evolve tactics
>Along the way, MC (who possesses no crest) encounters an American named David (who possesses the crest of scalability), a fat guy named Richard (who possesses the crest of freedom), a bunch of females (who possess useless crests like friendzone, take-responsibility, equality, and acceptance)
Actually, the best way is to look at what Kamen Rider is doing.
I'd like to re-do cards with a focus on "card-combos" - maybe something like Megaman.EXE's battle chips, something that modifies the digimon's code on the fly during battle. Tactics and strategy and smart use of these upgrades would be more important than evolution level (up to a point, of course).
I'd also make the series shorter. 26 episodes,
concentrating the budget.
Make the digital world actively hostile; entities and extremely powerful digimon would want to enter/control the human world, which has become easier all the time with the incorporation of fucking smartphones and shit everywhere.
In order to enter the human world, they'd need "host bodies" - kind of a perversion of the fusion process in Frontier; instead of a human with a digimon soul, it'd be a digimon possessing a human, transmitted wirelessly into their heads through their phones and controlling their every action.
Of course the people who are aware of the digital world are keeping interdimensional contact secret and tightly, tightly policed and controlled.
Halfway through the series it would be discovered that rogue digimon stomping shit in the real world are people who have been possessed by a digimon so long they have been able to manifest a digital presence in the real world; every time one of them gets killed, so does the human they're possessing.
The gimmicks would be the battle chips, and maybe some kind of stylized ram/memory upgrade that plugs into the digivice. It makes sense that larger digimon would take up more memory.
Season could start with a group of kids/employees at this agency that polices conflict between the human/digital world capturing and sealing digimon in USB sticks, pseudo-Ghostbusters style.
YOU RUN AROUND I RUN AROUND WE ALL GONNA RUN AROUND.
>ome kind of stylized ram/memory upgrade
I would love that.
Digivice are simply gauntlets that act as communication devices and maps. Digivolution in this series is more or less for keeps.
Make the plot a fetch quest to save the digital world, and the main character and villain a child (siblings?) who found eggs to give the progneitors to the -dramon types, each with their own Dracomon.
So while the Gauntlet Digivices are not unique (Tamers digivices work as maps), the permanent Digivolution is. However that leaves for one other important mechanic.
We have the characters fight alongside their Digimon. Think of it like the old PSX RPG, Guardian Crusades. Have the relationship of the tamers and their digimon be like father/children
Could also have a creepy pedophile type character who runs around the real world shilling the hard drives to emotionally vulnerable people and/or people who wouldn't be missed in order for them to become host bodies for digimon.
An absolutely batshit crazy dude who thinks digimon are the future and the fucking riajuu human world that rejected him and called him a loser should be destroyed. Essentially a creepy manchild who thinks everyone becoming digimon is better.
Plotlines would be devil-tempt Faust shit; "here, there's this magic game you can play which will give you power." And it does, the only drawback is having a digimon slowly start to control you before it takes over your life completely and turns you into a living husk that sustains its presence in the real world.
It'd be like, nobody's fucking seen this kid in class for a while; nobody gives a shit, nobody likes him anyway. Then one day he comes into class, people start ripping on him, he gets mad, pulls out his phone, and loads the program. He transforms into a fucking nightmarish digimon and fucking trashes the place.
Main characters/digidestined show up and fucking lose their shit too; digimon wreaking havoc in an environment they thought was safe.
digimon now act like stands
Only watched the first season (and most of the second one in bits and pieces) so I don't know shit about Digimon.
This image makes me hard though.
Replace digimon with Jews. The digijews try to take the money of the other digijews. You can also make your digijew stronger by giving it more money. The show is ofcourse, renamed to "Shekelmaster"
my fucking sides
It was not a bad show and anybody who says otherwise is a fucking retard unable to see the flaws of their nostalgic shows. That being said, I kept forgetting I was watching 'Digimon' when it was airing.
glad I could make you laugh. Another one.
>digimon replaced with diginigs
>diginigs battle each other for cadillac 22" rims
>show renamed to "Niggest Brooklyn"
Fuck, I've got it.
It'd be a fucking app.
An app that's supposed to give you incredible powers.
(Except it actually turns you into a fucking monster.)
What would the Digivices be though? We had phones with Savers.
This is how we do it.
Combine Zoids and Digimon.
The children are able to upgrade their digimons potential by scavenging data from their defeated enemies. Combine it with a tournament style structure allowing for a slightly older hot mechanic chick for the MC`s team, Bring back Jijimon as the advisor. Second series reveal that the entire tournament is a front for a Team Rocket style bad guys.
The zoids aspect is just like the CAS system that the Liger Zero has, allowing Digi-partners with a more flexible feel rather than the rigid digivolution patterns of the original series.
Tempted to have it be a belt buckle for maximum kamen rider.
But a dorky foldable tablet, something in ipad mini size that can fold together or something; that would make sense. You could have all the data on it and a slot to load the battle chips as well as a port for expandable memory cartridges.
But why not add a bit more to it? The reason why it turns people into monsters, is that the pads have nowhere to send the information to, but the user? To use them properly, you send the data to the partner Digimon, then the tamer provides battlefield support through transmission of data?
Who the fuck gives a shit? Its just a random shitscribble from the internet.
Oh wait... I get it. Samefag.
It'd be a soft reboot with a story that spans across multiple seasons and teams, similar to Bionicle, and Saban-era Power Rangers. As the story goes on, it'll become more continuity heavy, but not to the point where it'll be confusing for newcomers.
The main teams of each season will keep their Digimon partners by seasons end, thus allowing for easier plots for crossovers. Likewise, there will also be multiple goggle heads including a female gogglehead, so no "Tai passing his goggles to Davis" BS.
The first two seasons will have Adventure-like plots and characters, while the third season onwards will be more like 02/Savers meets Persona 4 it will also be /u/ relevant.
After the third season, it'll start to become bigger in scale. Eventually reaching TTGL levels of over-the-top.
The main characters will be older, mostly around 16-18, and will age as the series progresses until they're all college-aged. Factions like the Royal Knights, Demon Lords, Olympus 12, Kowloon, Gaia Origin etc. will factor into the story, and have relevant roles.
The first new mechanic are Digimon turning into weapons for their partners to use, and gaining their attacks and abilities. The second will be Digimon being able to learn attacks/abilities of other Digimon, performing their own variations of them. DigiXros will also be a thing, since it'd sell toys.
That would make sense.
And for the jews, an online app game made for maximum jewery with cards/figures that have AR codes on them for in-game use. Loads of money. Almost like original Digimon keychain toys, but as an app.
I think your samefag detector is broken
Cry harder samefag
