This just in from Japan! Digimon fan twitter account Digi_Channel has posted brand new art assets from Toei animation that shows off all of the new Digimon reboot characters designs! How do the 2020’s anime Digidestined compare to the originals?
The characters in these assets are all striking the same poses with the same hair and facial expressions, but with slightly more modern outfits. Have a look for yourself!
Matt & Tai or Yamato & Taichi
We’ve already had a few good looks at Tai / Taichi thanks to the trailers, but look at Matt / Yamato! A purple shirt? Grey pants? SLEEVES!?
It’s a big change for sure, perhaps one intended to more closely match his Digimon’s colors?
Sora & Izzy or Sora & Koushiro
No gloves for either character? Okay, we’re noticing a trend here. I guess gloves were just too much of a ’90s thing? Apart from that, Sora’s more pinkish aesthetic definitely matches her partner Digimon. Izzy is also looking pretty fresh with a zip up hoody replacing the button up.
Mimi & Joe
These characters remain the most untouched in the 2020 reboot of Digimon Adventure. Mimi has a different colored hat and no gloves, while Joe has pants instead of shorts. Clearly Mimi’s fashion sense hasn’t changed, and Joe just probably doesn’t care about fashion.
T.K. & Kari or Takeru & Hikari
The two angels of the Digimon adventure franchise are looking more adorable than ever in the new reboot! T.K.’s got a striped shirt while Kari has a sort of jean romper / suspenders outfit going on.
What do you think of the new outfits? Let us know in the comments!
