So, let's see, main character looks like a combination of:
Daisuke
Takuya
And a little bit of Takato

And the main digimon looks like:
Guilmon
and
Veemon

...Yup, they're running out of ideas! Very Happy

Which is sad because narrative wise, Digimon's been a 'pretty' superior counterpart to Pokemon in their animations. Mad

EDIT: Tamers was the best season... Frontier was very close to being just as good though.

What the hell is with the title?

I'm glad that it's confirmed that the main character only has one partner though. I was scared that the series would only have one human character for a while there.

I like Shoutmon. He looks like a mix between Veemon and Guilmon, which is great.

EDIT: IS THE NEW DIGIVICE A WATCH?!?!?! Look at the picture!

I dunno, I kinda like that main character looks like Daisuke and Takuya. But the title is kinda rediculous. I'm still lookin' forward to this. Razz

GOOD it's not called "Digimon Again" as suspected... That moreso sounded like a new Slayers title >_>

As a long-time Digimon fan, I must say I'm skeptical on this...

XDDD Thank you! I totally think it looks like Daisuke's child even though we know what he looks like. But 25 years after doesn't exist to me~~~

Well, at least he has the requisite Goggles of Lead Character. Those are only handed out to those characters officially endorsed by Azulongmon and Cherubimon, as well as the show's sponsors, so you just know he's legit. Too bad dark_serenity was right when they said that the show went downhill after Tamers (the best season in my opinion). And it didn't just get worse, it got a lot worse, very quickly. Which means I have absolutely no interest in watching this iteration, sadly.

Somehow I'm thinking the international name might be changed...

"Cross Wars" evokes a bit too much of the old crusades, methinks.

Haven't watched Data Squad yet, but I'm seeing Digimon in an whole new level. Even I told my friend one day that Digimon could be the next Gundam, well into Earth Federation vs Zeon type of battle. I really hope this could be an sequel to Tamers.

I only want to see a Tamers sequel with 'everyone' returning.

Takato, Rika and Henry absolutely must come back. The show left on a cliffhanger and it's only fair we see it continued at some point.

Personally though, I'd prefer it to occur a couple years later. I'd like seeing how the passed time affects them and whatnot.

Eh, though I forgot about that stupid movie finale I never saw. [>_>]

And hey, serenity, did you see Frontier to completion? The dub was pretty stellar, Michelle Ruff, Brianne Siddal, Steve Blum, Crispin Freeman, they had some top notch english VA's! Frontier was the last one I enjoyed, I just found Data Squad a bit too boring for my tastes

All I know is that they brought back the goggles so that already makes it more faithful than Data Squad. You could also look at it this way, it can't possibly worse than Digimon Adventure 02.
