I dont understand why they think they can get away with appealing to kids with digimon anymore. The toys are far too expensive for any kid to buy and are clearly meant for collectors. They should go full gundam with this s***.
Nah, the toys are priced pretty low and affordable. Only the Adventure nostalgia bait products are expensive and sold on Premium Bandai. Even Gundam is trying to appeal to kids these days with the Build Fighter series.

I'll go for a full review after the last episode but...while this might not be the worst anime ever its still a disgrace to Digimon...they used the cast shamelessly for nostalgia bait and all and all, REALLY seemed to make that the only plan of the entire show since there really seems to be no plot in the end other then flashy fights with bland monsters back to back to back to...back.

In the end every kid is inferior to how they were in the orginal series, Tai's overexposure sure as hell did not make him more developed and even getting the Mega forms amounted to nothing since just like in Tri its all to job for the sake of Omnimon.

Sure we got some flashy fights, but I sware a good chunk of the orginal series looked better then a good chunk of the non crazy fight episodes.

Only when they don't sell. Most of their revenue comes from Vpet and model kit sales anyway.

Is build fighters still popular? I recall it falling off hard after divers ended up being a disappointment which made them go back to UC again. Not that I mind because Thunderbolt and Anne Hathaway are kino

I enjoyed the zoomer timeline Mimi more than the original even if she's less realistic and Joe going max meme did pay off somehow, but that's probably because Joe was pretty basic/had his absurd moments even in the better written timeline.
Who shall rise and become the anime villain of this decade?

Build Fighters is just a good excuse for Bandai to reprint model kits with some custom parts or colours so it's low cost and still sells a decent amount. Kids get into it from the anime and adults kit bash/horde them for customization.

There's still new content coming out so I would say it's doing fairly well.

UC still has a very loyal base so Bandai panders to them more often. It doesn't bring in new blood though.

The 'Gunpla' anime pretty much gets rid of the pretentious stuff and just straight up admit that they're just trying to sell merch. Plus it's not like they don't put effort into it (unlike this sad excuse for Digimon Adventure reboot). Granted it's not exactly great either.

It was also a multi-media project where they made Gunpla games where the player can customize their own kit and use it for Musou-ish gameplay for fans who are either unskilled with model kits or too poor to buy all the kits.

Those games were alright up until they made 'New Gundam Breaker' which instantly earned the 'kugose' label within 2 days of release. They pretty much try to pretend it doesn't exist anymore as this new upcoming OVA is a crossover of Breaker 3 + the Phone game.

This series isn't pretending to be anything other than a kid's show that showcases nostalgia bait and obscure Digimon though. Already makes it leagues better than Tri.

Weirdly enough, one of my dislikes for this reboot is that most of the enemies don't talk and they're basically just wild encounter spawns in a RPG.

Yet my favorite part in Tri. was like the 5 minute silent flashback of the OG Chosen Ones + Sovereigns getting jumped by the Dark Masters.

To me that's because we already knew who the Dark Masters were and it was hype to see how they rose to power because they left such a strong impact in the first season that its exciting to see them again.

Meanwhile we got Zeed doing jack but die...then " Pride" show up...just to die...its pathetic really how utterly these writers have failed in writing worthwhile villains.
