Digimon Adventure tri. loot!Digimon Adventure tri. loot!

Hi everyone! \^-^/

Ah, how to start. Well, I really like the Digimon anime series. All seasons, actually (yes, even Appli Monsters this far, despite all my critic)! So I wish I could initiate a hipster discussion now and say that “Frontier and Savers that literally no one likes are actually the very best seasons and everyone else is wrong!!” (they are literally my 2nd and 3rd favorite lol) just to defend these other seasons and give them some spotlight; but in all honesty, my favorites are the best-known and popular seasons as well: the first two, Adventure and Adventure 02, that I often count as one because they’re strictly connected, unlike all seasons after them. And as many of you surely know, today, ~17 years after these seasons have aired, we’re being blessed with a new and still on-going anime project that serves as a direct sequel to them, Digimon Adventure tri.

What’s most interesting about it is that it’s a 100% nostalgia trip. They mentioned before that it’s for the “fans of back then that have all grown-up”, and not only do they assume you still remember everything when they create incredibly detailed and well-hidden references, no, they re-use entire plot elements. View spoilerHide spoilerLeomon dying, the Kaiser, bad stuff happening to Takeru and Patamon, Hikari being used as a medium to reveal backstory… etc. I understand that is not everyone’s cup of tea, while others may like it. Well, I happen to be one of the latter. Same thing can be said about the artstyle / character design – this kind of thing is always subjective, and people are welcome to dislike it, but I happen to like it, I think the minimalistic style is very cute and fitting. What’s more… lazy and low-quality animation (srsly Appli Monsters is looking better and that’s a weekly TV series for kids while tri. is a bi-annually movie release for mid-20-year-olds, wth), awkward storyboard, slow writing that creates boredom, and some major plotholes. So, some of all the hatred literally ANY revival project of an old franchise is getting, tri. may actually deserve. Still I’m here to protect this series with my life. Why? Because the characters are still my babies, by which I mean they’re still themselves, they stayed amazingly true to the old characters or even to the way the fandom interpreted them and it makes their new developments as they become adults so genuine, interesting and heartfelt. That, and the amazing references to old events, are things that really tell the people working on it know and loved the original series and wanted to create something for the fans. And that is all tri. is. It’s not meant to be a fresh breeze to attract new fans of every age and compete with other shows like it; it’s meant to make you feel nostalgic seeing the same old characters doing the same old things they always did. And that is something you can also fail to do, but nailed it here imo, and that is why I love tri.! \o/

Sooo to summarize: I love the characters and their design. Any other conflicted feelings of mine about the content or quality of the series is actually irrelevant because that is more than enough reason for me to justify getting as much merch of them as I can lol. So in the past couple of months, I’ve had two bigger loots and some small purchases in-between!

Almost everything in these loots, I got from YAJ (only 3 items where I did not) through my proxy Japonica. Also, almost nothing is added to MFC’s database, for some reason (you’d think this series would at least be a LITTLE more popular ;;).
I apologize for the photos, which were taken with my phone and are ridiculously blurry and ugly orz. Also some came out really dark and I tried to light them up via GIMP; hope it doesn’t give you cancer.


Loot #1!


http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/wmdt6zyf.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/3bfocuyt.jpg
The first item that gazed at me. Off to a great start!

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/ejmslsw4.jpg
That is… pretty much all already. To the left are the towels, middle has Shikishi and illustrations cards (including the PARCO exclusive one, where they are retail-working), and the right has the badges. Let’s unwrap these first!

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/s2nw95he.jpg

I LOOOVE love love love love them! Seriously, Digimon HAS the cutest badges out there, with the most adorable faces and pretty background pattern + colors. >w<

Two versions of this set were sold; I got the one where the secret 10th badge was the Kaiser (thankfully, as Ken and his story are my favorite thing in the whole Digimon universe), which I believe was only sold at a certain event? The Toei Onlineshop later sold the set online were said special 10th badge was Daigo shopping.toei-a... I searched and searched, but so far I wasn’t able to find him as a single, and as much as I like him (and Maki), I don’t really want to re-buy the entire set just for him, so he remains very much wanted! ><

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/smd9i298.jpg

The Oedo Onsen face-towels! Also the badges again and at the top there’s my Shikishi and the two illustration cards. The towels have a weird texture I don’t really like (also very static) but I wasn’t going to use them anyway. The bathing scene in Ketsui was sooo funny and sweet, I’m happy to own these adorable illustrations on sturdy material to remember it!

Palmon imitating Mimi’s pose gives me so much life.

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/szn2ezi9.jpg

A sweet illustration/telephone card of Mimi and Meiko from Ketsui. I was starting to like Meiko back then, but Kokuhaku ruined it all lol. It sucks she’s part of every set now, if I’m ever having space issues I’ll probably throw everything of her away. Also, my first and very lonely Shikishi lmao. It’s the colored/human one of Ketsui – each movie had two so far, one showing the human characters from the promotional posters in colors and the other one their Digimon (Ultimate-Level) in black-and-white.

In-between Ketsui and Kokuhaku, I got the colored/human Shikishi of Saikai (so showing Taichi and Yamato), as well as a 15th anniversary one of Adventure!Taichi and Agumon from 2013, and thanks to User akarin, also the USA one of tri.!Taichi and Agumon they gave away at the dubbed screenings of Saikai.


Loot #2!


This time with ITEM #327207 for size comparisons!

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/587sw37k.jpg

That’s… so much smaller than expected lol, knowing what’s inside. But I’m actually pretty happy not to receive unnecessarily big boxes for a change.

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/jbwqzmmc.jpg

First glimpse and I already see the adorable face of Patamon aaaah

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/xyvt7dwy.jpg
MOAR SHIKISHI YES

But since Patamon is what I saw first, let’s unbox it at first, too. It’s a so-called multi-purpose stand.

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/947xb7xt.jpg

The back side telling you all the things you could do. Like Hipster!Patamon. I wouldn’t know why but ey whatever floats your boat. Oh yeah, and the clear plate actually has a Crest of Hope on it, which is quite neat.

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/b3gnsx6n.jpg

It comes in pieces

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/h5wfrlgb.jpg

Assembled

Example

Size
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/oe3vv32m.jpg

There isn’t much space to put thick stuff between face-plate and ears-plate, but it must be wide enough not to fall in-between the ears. That’s pretty specific, making the stand quite useless, and quite small. Still gosh darn adorable 10/10 everything for my favorite

Next thing are actually in the DB for once - ENCYCLOPEDIA #114654 !

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/wiv4ec5b.jpg

I bought the full set even though I just wanted Takeru and Kaiser that are my favs, but YAJ only had them for like 1000 Yen each and I found this complete set for 2000. What even
(Also they were packed in 3 (!) layers of plastic. Each their own, then one to wrap them all, and then bubble wrap – why?? They’re rubber straps?? That was a tad annoying and unnecessary, but oh well.)
Seeing them in person my plans have definitely changed, and I've kept Taichi and Yamato too and even infected!Imperialdramon as well because it's just so cute, but I sold the rest.

Up next is another set of rubber straps, which is also in the DB, ENCYCLOPEDIA #108751 !

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/jwtscmi8.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/7zh2hxe8.jpg
goddamn blurr I’m sorry

I was so excited for these cuties, I pre-ordered them waaay back, but to my surprise I actually don’t like them as much in person! ;; I don’t know why, the eyes I found so cute now seem creepy somehow. I really don’t know if I’m gonna keep this set :/

Next thing is the new set of badges and the worst pictures of this blog yaaay \o/

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/zhhz5fbx.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/2wv2ed49.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/dssl9sqw.jpg
Palmon is imitating Mimi again >w<
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/9f9z2ijh.jpg
Again, I LOVE them! >w< This time the badges were meant to present their activities and hobbys or just casual life but I don’t get at all wth Taichi’s doing.
And again, two versions of this set were sold. My set’s special 10th badge has Yamato rocking it with the guitar, while the other set has him calm with eyes closed playing harmonica. I haven’t found that other badge as a single yet… for less than 5000 Yen /shots. I’d REALLY like not having to pay that much ;;

Next item is an IC card sticker with the “Karaoke” illustrations – I really like those but was unable to track down a complete set of coasters/keychains/badges yet. I don’t like stickers, but I thought perhaps it’s like 13 x 13 centimeters big one and at least I’d have every child in one place like with the face-towels from the first loot…

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/k32nppst.jpg

LMAOOO no. Nope nope nope. This went straight to the trash. It’s so small, I couldn’t even really see their faces. I can’t believe that after shipping and handling, I paid like 1500 Yen for this. At least that hard plastic thing it’s in turned out to be useful lmao.

Shikishi & illustration cards!

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/5qxr3z8i.jpg

These were 15th anniversary celebrations as well, but other than that I don’t know much about them. I learned that the female Beelzebumon was created by Kenji (a main character designer for the franchise) for exactly these art purposes and found it quite neat, so I wanted it, and the other Shikishi was actually part of that offer on YAJ, but to be completely honest I don’t even know what Digimon it is. I think it said something like “Gaiowamon” in the offer, but I searched for that and found nothing…?
EDIT: Thanks to two of you guys, I've learned that this is Gaio(u)mon (damn, so close haha!) and that I'm an idiot for forgetting it was on Xros Wars (which, to my defense, is my least favorite season, but still) ><

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/gh3u87yk.jpg

Aaah yes, my favorite part of the loot! It’s both Shikishi from Kokuhaku (colored/human and black-and-white/Digimon), the black-and-white/Digimon one from Ketsui, and an autograph-like bromide from Yamato as part of Knife Of Day and I feel like the biggest nerd for owning that and I love it! It also fits perfectly into the hard plastic case from the sticker so that was a nice surprise.
As for the Shikishi… Koushirou why. Why that outfit. I get that it’s a joke in the movies, trying to improve his fashion sense for Mimi and failing miserably, yes I get it very funny. But a Shikishi is meant to be pretty, meant to be hanged onto the wall! They really should have dressed him differently imo, especially because the other Shikishi of Saikai and Ketsui didn’t even show upper bodies at all, but head only! When I first saw the illustration for the Kokuhaku one upon ordering I was so mad; by now I’ve calmed down and think it’s still very cute, but... yeah.

I still need the black-and-white/Digimon one from Saikai, AKA Omegamon. It’s pretty rare and expensive @.@

ALL \o/
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/a3th3pdf.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/raodef5i.jpg

Post-loot ways to display the stuff I just got (minus some of the rubber straps as I’m still unsure what to do with them/selling them):

15th anniversary Shikishi on the side part of my 3 Digimon-themed Detolf shelves; I see them everytime I enter or leave the room.

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/cmbpgjhm.jpg

Patamon is holding Yamato’s autograph bromide which is inside the hard plastic case the trash IC-Sticker came with lol:

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/5s7hq4dp.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/rzu4xv28.jpg

The tri. Shikishi are framed and hung up above my bed!

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/in3zoycf.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/uki8ex6p.jpg

2,5 corkboards hold my badges and straps:

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/fm2wimrm.jpg
http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/e4bsigz6.jpg

Next to it are some more bromides, a one-of-a-kind-drawing of Taichi I got at a convention, and the Angemon poster from my previous blog! blog/29875&amp;...

http://fs5.directupload.net/images/161023/vid4wev2.jpg

And that is it! I hope you enjoyed. I’ll probably get more loots like this every once in a while, because there’s still only been half of tri., and I’ll at least get all the next Shikishi! Looking pretty forward to that \^-^/
Anyway I hope all of you are having a good day and I wish you all the best!

Thanks! ^-^ And thanks for the info also, katsudon kindly pointed that out before (gonna add it to the blog now) and I'm so mad at myself because I just mixed up two Katakana and learned it even appeared on the anime (Xros Wars) so I really should have known /orz, but that's why it's great to have you people, haha! xD
Thanks to everyone who read, liked, and enjoyed! ♥

atimidtempest (1年前) #15669556I've actually never used YAJ! How would I search for the stand?
I usually just search for " デジモン tri " (the japanese spelling "digimon") for any kind of merch ^^ whole thing would be パタモン (マルティパーパス) スタンド (Patamon multi-purpose stand), I think but I'm not 100% about the middle part, but with the first + last of even just digimon tri you should find I fairly easy. You need a proxy seller to order though; Buyee offer their service on YAJ directly but I don't know anything about them and use Japonica (japonicamarket.com)! If you have any questions regarding them I'm sure I could help! ^^ Hope I could already ^^

Memyandi (1年前) #15657207Aww thank you! >w< Agreed on the Patamon stand, it's totally worth it despite not being too useful haha. It's relatively cheap and easy to get on YAJ, there's still bunches of auctions in the 2000-3000 Yen range (+ proxy fees + shipping but it's flat and light so), in case you were serious. :D
Kokuhaku is pretty fine! Slow start again but then they're advancing the plot surprisingly fast and well, plot is what I desired the most after the first two movies so that's good haha!

Nice haul! I feel outdated cause all my Digimon stuff is the ooooooold original action figures and none of the new ones lol.

And that "mystery" digimon portrait you got is a subspecies of WarGreymon, named Gaiomon. dma.wtw-x.net/d...

Memyandi (2年前) #15633275Couldn't agree more! I think they overdid it a bit with dead parents, I totally prefer the "lighter" but much better portrayed family drama from older seasons like the divorce of Yamato/Takeru's parents or the death of Ken's brother that wasn't just a tragic backstory but what initiated the entire plot. That's what makes Digimon awesome to me; the realness and not-too-over-the-top but rather well-done drama.
Aww so you did mean the promo posters, damn, I really like those too but yeah the official ones are kinda impossible to get ;; Seeing as international shipping will be hell because of the heavy frames. There's one on YAJ right now that is even worse page9.auctions.... lol. I'd want them as well, it's a real pity.


Yeah, they definitely pushed the melodrama angle a bit too much- but it wasn't a bad show by any means, just not as good as the others.

We have two options my friend, we either win the lottery or harvest our friends kidneys. They only need ONE, so if you'll excuse me...

Wow, that's an amazing Digimon collection! And what a great loot! That Patamon stand is sooooooooooooooooooo freaking cute, I need one! >___<

I admit that I have not yet the seen the next part of tri. The first part was... yeah kinda boring. But I did really love how true to their original selves the characters were!

Memyandi (2年前) #15623663Aaaah yes, thank you!! I literally confused just one Katakana, damn I'm mad at me now haha. Also I looked it up and seems it even actually appeared on Xros Wars - well take a wild guess what my least favorite season is that I simply forgot that haha!
Yes of course! For startes there are the actual movie (promo) posters from the Toei Onlineshop that are super awesome and classy imo but also super expensive (eg shopping.toei-a... )
Others would be magazine posters and you should find a lot via searching " デジモン tri ポスター " (digimon tri poster) on YJA :) auctions.search...


Well to be fair, Xros Wars wasn't great. It was entertaining for sure, but it didn't do much for me. Gaiomon is awesome though, I love the way it looks.

And awesome, thanks! And wow, you weren't joking about those prices... Maybe I'll pray that Toei makes wall scrolls or settle for an unofficial one instead. -_-
