Christ, I had forgotten wholesale that Time Hunters was a loving thing.

That said, I just dealt with one slow motion train crash with Crystal and to a lesser extent Viz's cack handling of the video for the classic series. I do not need to be walking away from that only to get myself into a slow motion car accident with Tri.

Tri is going to air on television and thus have sponsors, so its budget is already around 50 times bigger than Crystal.

Right!? I'm not even sure HOW they hosed up Hunters that badly in the first place. On paper it's the best drat Digimon series ever and the second season of XW was actually pretty decent so I know they had at least SOME talent to draw from. They should have have had no problem making something at least mildly watchable but instead we got a boring trainwreck aimed at five year olds.

I think they didn't really want to do Young Hunters. To do mildly baseless rumormongering based on third-hand information I've heard that the people behind the show had no plans for Young Hunters until they were suddenly given another 26 episodes and told do a third arc that was a crossover. I cannot watch the crossover elements without concluding they were put together by people who had not actually seen any of the previous seasons they were crossing over with. And I still enjoyed it more than any of the rest of Xros Wars so go figure.

Frontier botched the landing but was still enjoyable. Savers was legit good in my book.

BanchoLeomon was one of the best characters. Hands down. Also, everyone's digimon reached the same level by the end.

These days? Pretty much nothing. The last thing he did according to IMDB was in 2007, and the last big thing he did was a few episodes of Eureka Seven in 2005.

I think he might have become a full time novelist, but I dunno. Though sad to say it looks like his career in the anime industry is all but over.

Savers is the G Gundam to Tamers' Evangelion. Also the main character is a delinquent with seemingly superhuman strength who punches bad digimon to make his agumon evolve.

the plot is by the same person who made the setting/plot for G Gundam apparently.

Punching digimon to power up your digimon so it can digivolve is a good concept.

The original idea for Savers is still awesome and I'm sad it didn't happen. with Digimon-Human gangs and Thoma being an FBI agent and Masaru just out to beat everyone up to be the best and Yoshino being the head of an all-girl-gang

That would... actually be a really interesting concept. I've always been a sucker for settings where digimon are in some degree already known and the resulting pseudo-politics that crop up around that. Here's hoping that they might revisit such a notion some day.

This is the exact quote

quote:

*1 The counter plot I submitted to beat the first presented proposal, was about Banchou(s) all over Japan, who have Partner Digimon, and the hero accomplishing nationwide conquest through fights with Digimon (of course, this was rejected immediately). If circumstances permitted, Yoshino, the Kansai, nun-chuck wielding, female gang leader, and Touma, the American lonewolf who crushed New York's Mafia all by himself, would have possibly appeared.

Tamers I think is canonically stated by the creator to be his NGE done right. Rei is Henry.

G Gundam is not like any other Gundam show. It's about a dystopian future where the rich live on space colonies tricked out as the most ridiculous displays of their nation's cultural identity and every ten years dudes in giant robots beat the poo poo out of each other on Earth to determine what country is in charge for the next ten years. There is a boxing ring around the Earth. America's Gundam is a football player/surfer/boxer with big rear end magnum revolver style laser guuns. Holland's is a windmill. G Gundam is the light and it si the way.
