New Digimon Reboot Character Redesigns Side By Side

This just in from Japan! Digimon fan twitter account Digi_Channel has posted brand new art assets from Toei animation that show all of the Digidestined redesigns for the 2020 reboot of Digimon Adventure anime series.

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. and Kari or Takeru and 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?

  1. One thing, no bulky gloves. Good. Mimi and Joe are very similar. As well as Kari’s overalls are the cutest.

    If they need to fix one thing in the English dub, please have Mimi’s crest called “purity” and joe’s called “sincerity” Even though I still don’t understand how those are the TRUE names of their crests. How was Joe sincere and Mimi pure?
