Thread: tri. Part 5 is Out on Blu-ray! Breakdown, Scans, Screencaps, Sales, and Discussions!

  1. #1

    tri. Part 5 is Out on Blu-ray! Breakdown, Scans, Screencaps, Sales, and Discussions!

    The Blu-ray for Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5 is out!

    Where things would be identical, bits of text will be taken from the articles for parts 1 thru 4.

    Lots of scanning on this one, but not to much editing.

    As normal, I won't be reviewing the show itself, just going over the actual Blu-ray release.

    Any screencaps from the Blu-ray are lossless PNGs.

    All images in the article are smaller copies from our gallery (to keep loading sizes smaller for everyone), but link to the full sized versions when clicked.

    Scanning was done as high quality as I could do, and compressed and shrunk to reasonable sizes, along with reasonable quality JPG compression. I've explained my workflow in my personal thread and will answer any questions involving it or the processes used.

    Scanning this time was hell. Due to my old computer finally giving it up, and having a new computer, there were various issues with the color of the scans as they were being made (I can honestly say I didn't expect a scanner to be so temperamental with a new computer.) In the end I had to toss out multiple batches and more than a few hours of work. The final batch was done and small versions of the scan were shown to those who own the same disc to compare with their own physical versions of the materials to check the colors.

    First up will be all the physical stuff. Everything included with the Blu-ray was scanned minus one thing (a generic instruction sheet about Blu-rays.)

    We start with.... an obi card!

    This is an interesting obi card as it completely covers 3 sides, and partially covers a 4th. The part of the obi that covers the front covers the bottom right corner of the front. The obi for parts 1, 2, and 4 also covered the bottom right of the front, while part 3 covered the left (due to the placement of the tri. logo due to the art on that release.) The back of the case itself has no information on the product, so it's left to the obi card to contain all of this relevant information. It also means with the obi removed, the product is completely clean of most legal and technical information. If you look at the bottom of the obi, you can also notice they've added the Digimon 20th logo.

    The packaging for the Blu-ray itself is a cardboard digipak. The digipak is slightly thicker than is normally used but is identical to those for tri. parts 1 thru 4. The disk tray is plastic and raised far more than you'd normally see for a digipak. There is no obvious reason for this to be done this way. The cardboard is actually slightly wider than the plastic tray (likely to take into account the booklets and ads included.)

    The front and back cover for the Blu-ray are very nice and clean.

    The front cover (at the top of the article) is a fantastic image of Hikari, Tailmon, Meiko, and Meicoomon. The characters are all in interesting poses, and there is a fun playfulness to the image.

    The back cover is clean and with the tri. style digital motif (for lack of a better term) imagery in a subtle gray. This time I didn't scan the spine. The spine is simply basic black text of the title, but for the tri. text itself they kept it as it appears in the logo (it's effectively identical to the spine from other parts of tri., just with the changes to part 5 (it's basically just the vertical logo from the obi card in fact.)

    The Blu-ray comes with a slipcover (in an o-card shape) that is made out of clear plastic with the tri. style digital motif imagery on it to add to the cover. The logo is also on the slipcover.

    The front with the slipcover added adds an effect that appears similar to what we see in the OP for tri.

    The back is interesting because it already has a similar design style in a different color, so it feels multi-layered.

    One of the things I didn't scan was the inside of the digipak. Because of the height of the plastic tray, the scan wouldn't have come out well. The same as with prior parts, there is no art on the inside of the digipak. It uses the same motif we see through the packaging, but this time it's different layers of pink and white.

    The physical Blu-ray itself continues using this theme.

    Same motif, just with a focus on the pink color used for tri. Part 5.

    The Blu-ray came with a single physical extra since it was the Amazon version.

    A very nice poster with exclusive casual style art of Taichi and Hikari!

    I'm including Amazon's sample image here simply to show what it is. The poster is quite large, and I will try and scan it once I'm sure exactly how best to go about doing it (I may attempt to scan it in pieces and stitch it together, or go to an office store and see if they have a large scale scanner I can use.) Another option would be to hang it and take a picture to show it at scale (this is recurring with these massive posters... I'm leaning towards everything being done and doing large scale scans on a rented large printer all at once.)

    If ordered from the Toei store a lotto was held to win a theatrical Part 5 poster signed by the cast.

    Image Thumbnail (custom)

    We don't know anyone who entered (to say nothing of winning), so it's unlikely we will ever have a decent photo of it. Toei's press image is included above.

    Two booklets were also included. The smaller booklet is less a real booklet and more a fold-able pamphlet like thing made out of some nice paper stock.

    The front uses the poster art from tri. Part 5 that we first saw right after Part 4 came out, while the back lists credit information using the tri. digital motif.

    The inside of this contains 2 pages with character information on Hikari, Tailmon, Meiko, and Meicoomon.

    Basic bits, but it looks nice.

    4 pages of storyboards are also included. I left them in 2 page formation as I scanned them. They storyboards are for 2 scenes and each scene goes over all 4 pages.

    Scene No. 463-470: The words covering Hikari's body start to move and affect Nyaromon.
    Scene No. 481-488: Ophanimon and Raguelmon fuse and disappear into the sky before reappearing.

    I love production materials, so it's great to see more storyboards, and again we get one of the key scenes, just like last time. Still holding out hope for a storyboard book.

    And we have Ordinemon's name written down and it isn't from a bad phone camera shot!

    The larger booklet is a nice quality booklet with a ton of great art on the inside. I've kept the scans in double page formation for the interior, as I scanned it, as the dual page spreads are generally related.

    The front again uses the poster art from tri. Part 5. The back continues the digital motif.

    The first interior pages again uses familiar art.

    It's the ever popular character art that we've seen very often. Along with that we get a story overview.

    The next 2 page spread is Hikari and Tailmon!

    The design work is excellent for Hikari and Tailmon. The facial expressions work especially well for Hikari, as do some of the various outfits they show her in. The detailwork on Tailmon and her evolutions also looks quite good. It's interesting that they specifically point out that Ophanimon Falldown mode is listed as her Ultimate level due to a Dark Evolution.

    Some translated details...

    Hikari Yagami: Taichi's younger sister, and a 2nd year middle schooler at Odaiba Junior High School. She has a kind personality and is always concerned about her elder brother, Taichi, but she also has a strong-willed side to her. She loves sweet things, and has recently fallen in love with convenience store ice cream. She began taking an interest in photography since primary school, which continues till today.
    Tailmon: Adult, Vaccine, Holy Beast type
    Hikari's partner Digimon. A Holy Beast Digimon in the shape of a small cat. Its Special Move is Neko Punch, where it attacks with its long, sharp claws.

    Baby: Nyaromon
    Child: Plotmon
    Adult: Tailmon
    Perfect: Angewomon
    Ultimate (Dark Evolution): Ophanimon Falldown Mode

    Then we get Meiko and Meicoomon!

    Meiko's design work feels more subdued than Hikari's when viewing them side by side. The artwork is nice and also shows Meiko's more muted side well. Meicoomon they show quite a bit of art of, including facial expressions and her 'disguise.' We also get art of Meicoomon transformed into her other form. This form appears to have no formal name, just a mention that she's transformed. Meicrackmon and Raguelmon are both listed as 'mutated' evolutions of her.

    Some translated details...

    Meiko Mochizuki: A transfer student who transferred into Tsukishima Sogo High School. She is a Chosen Child, and is currently travelling wih Taichi and the others as one of their friends. She is troubled over how her partner, Meicoomon, has gone berserk and is dragging to world into a crisis.
    Meicoomon: Adult, Unknown, Unknown type
    Meiko's partner Digimon. She takes on the form of a cute cat when she is with Meiko, but the power that resides within her is said to be the key that leads to the destruction of the world, and is the source of the distortion.

    Baby: Unknown
    Child: Unknown
    Adult: Meicoomon
    Perfect (Mutation): Meicrackmon
    Ultimate (Mutation): Raguelmon

    Next up is something a bit familiar.

    This is the same 'post tri. Part 4' relationship chart that we first saw when the official website was updated with tri. part 5 imagery. They refer to it as a Correlation Diagram.

    Time for Daigo and Maki!

    We get profiles and artwork for each of them, along with basic information about their Digimon partners.

    Some translated details...

    Daigo Nishijima: The assistant homeroom teacher for Taichi's class, as well as a Incorporated Administrative Agency, National Data Processing Bureau Information Strategy Section, Information Management Office Grade 2 Management Officer. He was one of the original Chosen Children, and is now helping Taichi and the others.

    Partner Digimon: Bearmon (Child/Vaccine/Beast)
    Maki Himekawa: As a member of the same organisation as Nishijima, she lends Taichi and the others a hand. However, she was also using the children in order to achieve her own goal of reuniting with her Partner Digimon by causing the Reboot in the Digital World.

    Partner Digimon: Bakumon (Child/Vaccine/Holy Beast)

    Featured Digimon! These familiar Digimon show up tri. Part 5.

    To finish with, the bigger booklet ends with some more storyboards.

    We get two key moments from tri. Part 5.

    Scene no. 269-299- Meiko remembers Meicoomon's fear-filled past
    Scene no. 315-318- Meicrackmon mutates into Raguelmon while facing Jesmon

    And that's largely it for tri. part 5's package. Except the ads, which I'm including here...

    Only two ads this time and both were on the same sheet, and both are for upcoming disc releases! First up is the Digimon Tamers Blu-ray Box and the second is for the Digimon Adventure tri. stage play.

    And that's it for the physical... onto the disk contents itself!

    The video is encoded using AVC at an average bitrate of roughly 25 Mbps. Good bitrate for animated content in general. tri. Part 5 is encoded at 1080p and 24 frames per second. This is similiar to the discs for Parts 1 and 2, higher bitrate than Part 3, and lower than Part 4.

    The audio is a 5.1 PCM track. Good uncompressed 16-bit audio. The audio is generally smooth and crisp and is effectively the same as prior releases.

    No subtitles are included, which is expected.

    The video quality itself is roughly what we expected. Everything is digital animation, so it looks great. You occasionally get a background or some other detail that isn't aliased that well, but that's par for the course for animated content (although has happened less and less as tri. has gone on.) One thing to note is dark scenes look quite good. On occasion you will see some very mild banding but it doesn't seem to be much of a problem here (again, something that has seemed to go down as tri. has gone on.)

    By and large tri. on Blu-ray looks great. There are slightly off frames if you pick and choose, and the occasional stilted bit of animation, which is normal in animation when you pick and choose what to show, but the encode on the Blu-ray itself is relatively pristine.

    The menus again impress me (which is expected since it's basically the same menu we've seen before, just themed to tri. Part 5.)

    The menu animates in over the coverart with the tri. motif and then becomes a static menu.

    The chapter menu shows the first 5 chapters larger, and when you go over to 6, the size switches to have the next 5 larger. Parts 1, 2, and 4 of tri. used the same 'dual' system while Part 3 had more chapters so used a 'triple' system. The entire menu is very clean and usable, which is how I like my menus.

    Time for extras!

    A clean TV size ED of tri. Part 5.
    The initial 30 second tri. Part 5 trailer.
    The primary 30, 65, and 120 second trailers for tri. Part 5.
    The 65 second '2nd' trailer for tri. Part 5.
    The 3 minute digest version of tri. Part 4.
    The combined tri. Parts 1 thru 3 digest which runs 1 minute and 40 seconds.
    A 1 minute and 50 second '2nd' trailer for tri. Part 4.
    A 30 second TV commercial for tri. Part 4.
    A 15 second commercial for the Blu-ray/DVD of tri. Part 4.

    A few of these Part 5 extras we would normally expect on the next Blu-ray, but they've included them here, potentially knowing the Part 6 disc would be the last (perhaps to save space for other extras on that disc?)

    Overall tri. Part 5 got a package on par with prior releases. The initial package, as mentioned above, comes in a digipak, but after the initial printings it will move over to a normal Blu-ray case, same as with parts 1 thru 4.

    Part 5 did receive a theater release BD when it was in theaters. The disk contents themselves are the same, the only difference is in packaging and a different label on the disk.

    The DVD release should be the same for physical (with slight change in packaging for DVD instead of Blu-ray.) On disk content should be effectively the same, but in 480 compressed with MPEG2 instead of 1080 compressed with AVC for video, and Dolby Digital compression for the audio instead of uncompressed PCM.

    Screencaps were taken largely at random while jumping around (although if I knew a moment was coming up I wanted a cap of, I'd wait or take extras.)

    Various additional screen captures are in our gallery.

    The scans can all be found in the gallery.

    The scans are very small compared to the master scans I did (the work and backup folder structure for the scans and screencaps was over 70 gigs, including various scans that I tossed out when I was still working through color issues with the scans.) I will try and make wallpapers if people are interested. If you want to see a specific screencap of something give me a rough timecode if you can.

    If you have any questions about the release feel free to ask.

    We hope to add a few more translations shortly.

    Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5 is still available to order (Affiliate links.)

    Lots of Digimon stuff is coming out soon and supporting us via our Patreon or donations would be greatly appreciated so that we can do more breakdowns and improve the site. Feel free to join us in the Discord if you want to chat about the Blu-ray or tri.

    More things to come!

    Images are hosted on our gallery and embedded on the forum, so let us know if anything is acting up.

    Thanks to garm for some translated details.

    Update- We have week one sales. The sales chart for this period is October 30th through November 5th. Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5 came out on November 2nd.

    The Blu-ray version sold 5,442 copies and came in 3rd place on the Animation Blu-ray chart.

    The DVD version sold 1,863 copies and come in 2nd place on the Animation DVD chart.

    For comparison purposes:
    Digimon Adventure tri. Part 1 sold 6,074 on Blu-ray and 1,748 on DVD in it's initial week. It's chart position was 5th for BD and 10th for DVD.
    Digimon Adventure tri. Part 2 sold 9,602 on Blu-ray and 2,804 on DVD in it's initial week. It's chart position was 2nd for BD and 3rd for DVD.
    Digimon Adventure tri. Part 3 sold 9,061 on Blu-ray and 2,461 on DVD in it's initial week. It's chart position was 1st for BD and 2nd for DVD.
    Digimon Adventure tri. Part 4 sold 7,780 on Blu-ray and 2,599 on DVD in it's initial week. It's chart position was 2nd for BD and 3rd for DVD.

    Some notable releases that came out at the same time as tri. Part 5 that appear on the chart are- a Free! compilation film, and the film Blame!

    Thanks to ANN for the numbers.

    Week 1 sales for tri. Part 5 are down compared to prior volumes and appears to have jumped into the standard malaise that goes on as a series continues (or more people buying from Amazon to get the poster, since people seemed more interested in it than the ones for 2 and 3, but I tend to assume malaise.)

    As of yet the only thing interesting about tri.'s release thus far is the significant jump up between volumes 1 and 2. This could potentially be explained by the issues they had producing theater BDs for tri. Part 2, but that wouldn't explain the DVD jump, or that numbers stayed high for Part 3. Not all retailers are included in the charts, so Part 1 having lower sales could also have been explained by early pre-orders at retailers that aren't included.

    So this is supposed to be character data too?
    Pretty good, thanks.

    Cool!! Thanks guys So Ordinemon confirmed, interesting...Also, which is the exact kanji of the transformed form of Meicoomon?

    In another vein, is there any mention if Ophanimon: Falldown Mode is a Dark Evolution of Nyaromon, straightforward from Angewomon, or neither of them? According to the images, we can argue she directly evolved from Angewomon somehow, following the rule of Dark Evolution in the anime (Greymon → SkullGreymon, MegaloGrowmon → Megidramon, ShineGreymon → ShineGreymon Ruin Mode).

    Maicoomon's alternate look is described as Maicoomon (豹変時), which basically means "Maicoomon (when suddenly changed)."

    Now the question is, do we have enough evidence to claim a separate species page in Wikimon with such a vague name? Also, has this form been named with a more organizative nomenclature in any other media so far, like Maicoomon (Transformed) or Maicoomon (Mutated)?

    I think this is the first weve even seen any acknowledgement that its an abnormal form.

    In official media anyway, it's been treated as abnormal in-universe since day one

    All these extra pictures always make me dislike how everyone's almost always in uniform in Tri. Such a waste.
