Digimon Cross Wars in V-Jump 
21st-Apr-2010 12:20 am
Needing tangible confirmation, I managed to get my hands on the V-Jump which announces Digimon Cross Wars, and not seeing it anywhere else...


Exclusive first scoop!!
New Digimon Anime Broadcast Conformed!!

Starting this July on Terebi Asahi Keizenkoku Network!

Digimon Army vs. Digimon Army!
A great war like never before will begin!

Digimon Cross Wars. (Digimon Xros Wars)

We have our hands on an exclusive scoop! This summer, a new “Digimon” anime will start. New Digimon and a new exciting story about new Tamers*, is coming to you faster than ever!

The new main character and his Digimon are these two!
Keeping with the same fond memories, new heros take the stage!

New information GET!! The first information about the hero and partner at the center of this story is here!! Fighting with strong memories in his heart, let’s see the power tucked away!!

A hero who saves everyone in trouble!

Kudou Taiki:
Someone who will never overlook those in need, a first year junior high school student with a warm personality. Someone who handles a lot of requests, a person who is always busy as the helper with his club activities!

A Digimon leader with a soul of rock!

A Digimon who protects the village of peace in the Digital World from the hands of evil. He is a leader admired by the Digimon in the village.

Children command the Digimon, lead the Digital World to Unity!
In this new anime, the children are commanders of the Digimon! Restoring unity to the Digital World, the armies make use of strategy and strike! Don’t miss this grand battle like you’ve never seen!

*Yes, the word “Tamer” really is used, and it is plural.
**May be intended to be “Shoutmon” in English.

Taiki is a junior high student, and “children” and “tamers” are both definitely plural. Also, I think Shautomon is supposed to be somewhat rock and roll themed, since it says he has a soul of rock, wearing headphones, name sounds like "shout." Discuss!

Image may be used freely, I'd like credit for the translation. After midnight in Japan, hope y'all appreciate it... although I'm too excited to sleep anyhow =D

EDIT: So hay guys, you know how I said I posted this after midnight? The ad was sort of a potser pull out kind of thing that I thought I had to scan and put together in four pieces because it didn't fit. I didn't seem to figure out I could just scan it vertically. My face when I realized this must have been priceless. ANYHOW, I re-scanned it so now you can REALLY see right up into Taiki's existent nostrils!

There was also an ad for Digimon Lost Evolution in the same magazine, so I figured why not scan that too. I didn't translate it because... I really have no idea if this is new info or not since I haven't kept up with Lost Evo stuff.

I am sooooo freaking excited for this. <3 <3 <3

Thank you for the better scan/translation! :D!!

Hopefully we will hear word of the other "Tamers" soon; this is apparently airing only 4 months away.
The use of Tamers makes me want to think that this is going to be a sequel or related to Tamers, however unlikely.

Taiki sounds like the average googlehead, no surprises there.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Taiki being a junior high student make him one of the oldest Tamers/Chosen of all the series? I seem to recall the other Chosen/Tamers in grade 5 or so, depending on the character. Junior high is Grade 7 to 8.

Please please please please please do not have a rock and roll theme. For one character/digimon, sure, but don't do it for the entire series.

This whole battle/war/strategy thing has me interested. It's a bit different than before, and has the potential for a lot of interesting plots.

Jyou IIRC was 14 and Masaru was also 14. I think Taiki is 13.
20th-Apr-2010 08:09 pm (UTC)
Jyou was in the 6th grade in Adventure and in his last year of middle school in 02 (the equivalent of 9th grade, meaning he was 14-15). There's also Ryo, who was 14 in Tamers.
20th-Apr-2010 09:36 pm (UTC)
Junior High in Japan is grade 7-9. He's a 7th grader. So, he's older than than Jou, younger than Masaru.

Oh, okay thanks.
Should have done more research.

I get the feeling they are going to have a slightly older cast than Adv/02/Tamers, but younger than Savers.

Awesome, credited on WtW.

:DDDDD This is so going to make my day when it arrives! X33 The adrenaline is already making me want to leap out of my chair and into the screen.

Thank you for scanning and translating it!

Also, I've updated the Digimon character section on TVTropes to include Taiki and Shoutmon. If anyone knows any tropes that fit there, be more than happy to contribute to it: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/Digimon

Thank you so much!

Okay, Taiki has the potential to be someone I could like. I'll have to see how he is in the actual show, but that's a little bit of looking up at least. Shoutmon... continues to look like Guilmon and Veemon's lovechild, and still hasn't really captured my attention. But hey, who ever says a two-sentence biography can do a character justice? Wait and see, wait and see.

Also, yay for plurals. \o/

I see nostrils. Ohhhhh snap.
20th-Apr-2010 08:54 pm (UTC)
Oh my word, you're right. NOSTRIIIILS <3
20th-Apr-2010 08:36 pm (UTC)
...I am cautiously becoming more stoked about this :D

Thanks for posting this!

"Tamer" is getting my hopes up XD but i'm sure there will be no connection.

anyways, it sounds good except for this part:

"In this new anime, the children are commanders of the Digimon! Restoring unity to the Digital World, the armies make use of strategy and strike! Don’t miss this grand battle like you’ve never seen!"

this better not mean we'll be hearing the tamers shout out the attacks and the digimon just do what they say, otherwise i'll be VERY worried about the whole Digimon Pokemon thing.

I just realized that the kid's Digivice looks like a shaver. XD

The season sounds interesting...especially the Tamers bit.
20th-Apr-2010 11:48 pm (UTC)
I'm not too fond of Taiki's design, and I still need to see animated Shautamon but I guess he looks kindaa cool...Yet I'm more eager to see the dog-lion thing.

I really hope he is not the only child in the series...that would be kinda boring.
21st-Apr-2010 03:27 am (UTC)
Hasn't Tamer been the catch-all term for a Digimon partnered human since like...the series itself aired? (well except for that weird span of months when it was replaced with Frontier)
21st-Apr-2010 03:36 am (UTC)
It really has been. Even in some of the drama CDs, the Adventure and 02 kids randomly refer to themselves as Tamers. <_<
21st-Apr-2010 05:41 pm (UTC)
Hurray for clearer pictures to use as fan art reference~~~!! :'DDD
Thanks so much for the translation, you rock!!

It looks like all of the Digimon in that one scan are wearing 'headphones'. Well, maybe not all of them. But the wolf-drill guy and the pink Terriermon definitely have some kind of headphone thing going on. I'm curious as to what they mean...

And excited. Love the throwback to the old style. Ahhh.

what's that pink bunnies name???? So cute!

No lie.

Really. ....AHAHAHHA~
Wow. Lame.
