Thread: Audience for New Digimon Project Mentioned in Toei Briefing Q&A

  1. #1

    Audience for New Digimon Project Mentioned in Toei Briefing Q&A

    The drip feed continues...

    During a briefing last month regarding their fiscal year that ended in March 2018, Toei responded to some investor questions regarding various plans.

    The summary of the Q&A they gave only included 4 questions: 1 which was about Toei's initiatives regarding overseas distribution, 2 regarding upcoming plans for Dragon Ball, and 1 was about the upcoming Digimon project.

    Q: It seems the Digimon series has a new project in the works; could you share with us any plans that you have for the project, at least what you are allowed to share?

    A: All 6 parts of Digimon Adventure tri. have now been screened in theaters. By screening this movie, which is primarily aimed at both male and female audiences in their 20s, on a smaller scale in about 15-20 theaters, we were able to make this project a success. The new project will, in addition to this core audience, also be aimed at a slightly wider audience.
    So based on the answer, Toei specifically aimed tri. at people in their 20s (a sequel to Adventure, announced for it's 15 anniversary being aimed generically at people in their 20s won't really surprise anyone, but since they are discussing things with investors they are explaining things from a financial perspective to people who aren't generally going to be fans.)

    The new project intends to aim at the same core audience that made tri. a success for Toei, while also attempting to expand wider.


    With tri. being the biggest success Digimon has had in a long time, it makes logical sense that they'd want to try and primarily aim at the core group that made it successful, while also attempting to increase the size of the audience.

    Yay! Glad to be in the target audience once again. Here's hoping to more success!

    It will be interesting to see if the upcoming Digimon project can expand its audience to people in their 30s and even 40s...

    The idea of a wider target audience sounds like a good idea to me. Tri was such a niche product, even if it did well. I would like to see them maybe try and net new Digimon fans with this project!

    Sounds even more like it's going to be Tri 2. Maybe with the 02 characters this time around. Can't wait to see what they mean by widening their audience

    Honestly, I do not know how you can conclude that Toei talks about 02 characters in this Q&A.

    I imagined that the new project would have a wider broadcast (the films were pretty limited).

    I didn't mean it like that. I said that it sounds like it's going to be tri 2, since they said "The new project will, in addition to this core audience," with the "core audience" being Tri's audience. I just said that maybe the 02 character would be around this time since they appeared in the final Tri movie.

    I'm pretty happy Digimon is now a competitor with Shin Megami Tensei/Persona instead of Pokemon, considering the designer said he was heavily inspired by the former instead of the latter.

    They certainly chose a good franchise to model themselves after, especilaly coming from the highest rated PS4 game of 2017. Most of the time when people go "what game should I get like Persona" you get "Digimon" on there from 90% of posts. Is good stuff

    Shame people tend to only suggest the first one though
