New Digimon Series Rumored

Asuka


It was announced that a brand new Digimon game for the DS, "Digimon Story: Lost Evolution," would be coming out in 2010. Which seemed pretty, what with an old seemingly retired franchise like Digimon coming out with a new game out of the blue like that. But that's when things really started to get interested. Reports about a new Digimon anime series began to spread online not too long after that. Apparently, a brand new series tentatively titled "Digimon Around" will begin airing next year in Japan (let's not forget though that the original tentative title for "Frontier" was "Scanners"). An official announcement, if true, is expected to be made soon either in the pages of V-Jump or at Jump Festa.

Granted this all seems out of the blue, but don't forget that Digimon Savers also came out of nowhere as well. The one thing really holding a new season of Digimon back right now is its timeslot. All five seasons of Digimon have always aired Sunday mornings at 9am on Fuji TV, but that slot is currently taken by DragonBall Kai as part of Fuji's Dream9 hour along with One Piece. It's possible that Kai might end come April with the conclusion of the Freeza saga, or will perhaps move to a different time. But more than likely, it'll be Digimon Around getting the new time slot if it indeed becomes a reality. Let's keep our fingers crossed for now.

I had a feeling this was coming aswell.

When i blogged and tweeted about the new DS game the other day i just felt that a new anime was coming aswell.

Especially since when the 10th Anniversary CD released on August 1st (Day the original Digimon adventure series began) there was that cryptic message in the CD case


Ten years after the broadcast of "Digimon Adventure"...
Facing what lies beyond another door, a new story will come to life.


Kinda majorly hinted at a new anime right there, so its good that we're finnaly getting some more info on it, im all but certain its true, but as said, we need more info first.

What do you think it will be? a new series of Adventure with their kids? a remake of the original Adventure? or a totally new story with a new cast?.

Oh also Nebs, in your provided link it mentions new DS and Wii games.

I knew about the new DS game lost evolution, and i know about the MMO "Digimon masters" for the PC, but i havent heard anything on a new Wii game, have you got any news or details on that? o.o

Either way thanks for the post, lets just hope a new series is on its way =)

*crosses fingers for a new anime*
It'd be even better if it took place after Adventure 2!

"It's possible that Kai might end come April with the conclusion of the Freeza saga, or will perhaps move to a different time."

why say that? i remember reading kai was going to be 100 eps. they are most likely going to show the cell saga and the buu saga. freeza saga will probably end between episodes 40-50 IMO

want to point out that Kai was never confirmed to be 100 episodes. It was speculated that the series may be condenced into about 100 episodes, which unfortunately turned into a "wide spread" rumour. The current number that's being tossed around seems to be "50" episodes. Judging from where I could indicate where this information has come from, it seems Toei has the dvd release planned out for the series and lists "50 Episodes" as the scheduled amount.


This could change admittingly, but if this is true, then there is no doubt that something will replace Kai and it will most likely be the new Digimon series. I also want to note that Digimon since the beginning has aired in this timeslot.

well, those little opening things refer to Kai as the "Toriyama cut" or something along those lines. Aside from being condensed to more of a straight manga adaption with less filler, it's very possible that it's being remade the way Toriyama always intended, that being for the series to end with Freeza (he only made Cell because his editor pushed him to continue, and by Buu, he's pretty much "fuck it!" and screws around with things, as is somewhat evident with the amount of comedy the series goes into at that point, until the life-sapping monstrosity could finally end... and even then, Toei went in their own direction with GT). -Yamato
