    Animation Character Designs for Last Evolution Kizuna

    Posting this from mobile in bed, will be home tomorrow...

    It's the finalized animation character designs for all 8 kids and their Digimon from the new movie! We also have the translated character profiles from the updated official site thanks to onkei!


    Taichi is cleaned up for the animation design, with the primary change being the outfit has a generally cleaner look, and he doesn't have his goggles. Agumon goes back to a more Adventure-like appearance from his slimmer appearance in tri. and bulkier in early 20th movie art. His head appears a bit wider than both.


    Taichi Yagami
    CV: Natsuki Hanae
    A 4th year university student with a political science and economy major. He used university as an opportunity to support himself, and is currently living on his own. He tackles both his studies and his part-time job with cheerful singlemindedness, but to be honest, he hasn't decided yet on what he wants to be in the future. Even now, when he sees people in trouble from Digimon, he actively goes to save them.
    Agumon
    CV: Chika Sakamoto
    Child Level/ Vaccine / Reptile type
    Taichi's Digimon partner. A reptile who walks on two legs. Normally he has a laid-back personality, but when the time calls for it, he faces opponents without giving danger a second thought. He spits fireballs from his mouth in his special attack Baby Flame.

    Yamato looks the most similiar to early art, with the primary change being he's just been cleaned up a bit. Gabumon is roughly similiar to his Adventure art.


    Yamato Ishida
    CV: Yoshimasa Hosoya
    A 4th year university student with science and engineering major. His band is on hiatus, and he enjoys music more as a hobby. Right now, he's interested in motorcycles. He's decided to go to graduate school in order to study as well as to give himself time to clearly find himself.
    Gabumon
    CV: Mayumi Yamaguchi
    Child Level/ Data / Reptile type
    Yamato's Digimon partner. He wears Garurumon's pelt, but he's actually a reptile Digimon like Agumon. He attacks with small balls of fire in his special attack Petit Fire.

    Sora has one of the larger changes from her primary design art. Instead of a kimono, she's wearing a more modern stylish type outfit, and her hair is being drawn grown out, more similiar to how it was before haircut at the end of tri. Piyomon is roughly similiar to her Adventure art.


    Sora Takenouchi
    CV: Suzuko Mimori
    A 4th year university student at a women's college. She has decided not to look for a job, but to go the same path as her mother and take over as the head of her family's flower arrangement school. Her sociable personality hasn't changed; not only does she teach foreigners but she has a wide circle of friends. Because it's important to her to live a normal everyday life, she hardly meets with the others.
    Piyomon
    CV: Atori Shigematsu
    Child Level / Vaccine / Baby bird type
    Sora's Digimon partner. A baby bird Digimon whose wings have developed into arms. She uses phantom fire in her special attack Magical Fire.

    Koushiro's art is mostly cleaned up in fixing his proportions a bit. He also doesn't have the coat on. Tentomon is roughly similiar to his Adventure art.


    Koushiro Izumi
    CV: Mutsumi Tamura
    He runs his own business while in university. With the funds that he makes from it, he acts as the hub between the Digital World and the human world to save people in trouble from Digimon-related incidents. He is the leading role in maintaining the "Chosen Children" community that is spreading throughout the world.
    Tentomon
    CV: Takahiro Sakurai
    Child Level / Vaccine / Bug type
    Koushiro's Digimon partner. A bug Digimon with a hard shell and six limbs. His special attack uses static electricity that he unleashes from his feelers, Petit Thunder. For some reason, he speaks in Kansai dialect.

    Mimi's design mostly tweaks some colors and angles, which should make anyone happy who was worried she appeared a bit frumpy and non-fashionable. Palmon looks roughly similiar to her Adventure art, but gives a slightly different look since her Adventure art was at a slight angle and the new art isn't.


    Mimi Tachikawa
    CV: Hitomi Yoshida
    She sells articles that she thinks are "cute" online. She's a business girl who's not only in Japan, but travels worldwide. Her days are always busy, what with inventing original goods and the like, but although she is often unable to see the others, she keeps in diligent contact.
    Palmon
    CV: Kinoko Yamada
    Child Level / Data / Plant type
    Mimi's Digimon partner. A plant Digimon with a tropical flower on top of her head. She attacks with her poisonous vines in her special attack Poison Ivy.

    Jou's design features him in medical garb, perhaps giving us even more of an idea where he is as he's grown up. Gomamon is roughly similiar to his Adventure art, but appears noticeably taller.


    Jou Kido
    CV: Junya Ikeda
    A 5th year medical student. Although he is still inexperienced in clinical practice, his extraordinary passion that drove him to be a doctor in the first place has him studying extra hard every day, keeping him from ever meeting with the others.
    Gomamon
    CV: Junko Takeuchi
    Child Level / Vaccine / Marine mammal type
    Jou's Digimon partner. A marine mammal Digimon with warm fur who is good at swimming. When he's angry, the red fur that runs from his head to his back stands on end. His special attack is controlling his subordinate fishes freely at will, Marching Fishes.

    Takeru they've changed all his outfit's colors, made the vest closed for a slightly better look, and given him a slightly less goofy looking hat. Patamon's art is roughly similiar to his Adventure art.


    Takeru Takaishi
    CV: Enoki Junya
    A 1st year university student with a literature major. Although he is still hazy about what he wants to be in the future, he's begun to learn English and French at school and is a member of a club for children's book writing. He also helps out in the group's activities that involve Digimon.
    Patamon
    CV: Miwa Matsumoto
    Child Level / Vaccine / Mammal type
    Takeru's Digimon partner. A mammal Digimon with large ears. He sucks in air and lets it out like a shot in his special attack, Air Shot.

    Hikari's overall outfit is the same as we saw before with a few small changes. The overshirt has been made transparent, they've changed various colors, gotten rid of the hat, and gave her sandals. Tailmon appears roughly similiar to her Adventure art, but like Palmon is drawn at a different angle.


    Hikari Yagami
    CV: MAO
    A 1st year in a women's junior college that specializes in preschool education. While there is some distance between Taichi and her ever since he began living on his own, they sometimes see each other during the group's activities that involve Digimon.
    Tailmon
    CV: Yuka Tokumitsu
    Adult Level / Vaccine / Holy beast type
    Hikari's Digimon partner. A holy beast Digimon in the shape of a small feline. She uses her long pointed claws in her special attack, Cat Punch.



    A good look at the final animation designs that will be used in the movie. What's everyone's thoughts on the changes, both from prior designs for the characters used in shows and films, to various early looks we've gotten?

    And the descriptions



    Update- Cleaned up and expanded the above.

    The designs for the humans look nice, but it would have helped, if they actually cut them out correctly lol
    I'm not sure if the profiles on the site are the same we already got from the magazine but whatever the case, I do feel sour that even, as they are featured along their partners the Digimon are still denied similar attention as characters of their own.
    Once again we're getting random (and for the most part predictable and yawn-worthy) slice of life tidbits from the human characters' ordinary, lives and the Digimon, like usual, just have their species and attacks described because of course no one seems to care about what the Digimon are doing with their personal lives in the digital world, or the situation of the digital world in general, even though it would be probably ten times as entertaining as what their human partners have to offer.

    They are all new artwork. When tri redesigned the Digimon, one of the subtler changes was that they shifted, sometimes saturated, sometimes desaturated the colors of their designs, in some cases bringing them closer to the color scheme used in contemporary bandai artwork. These new Designs mostly revert to the previous anime designs in terms of detail and proportions but do so while keeping with the modified colors that tri introduced for the Digimon.

    I kind of like that they’ve shifted proportions back to the dumpier original designs, it seems like this new movie will be a lot more focused on the idea the kids have grown up and contrasting their new designs against the smaller, dumpier and more child-looking digimon works to highlight that

    TK must always have a new hat. But these look nice. They look like themselves but just older.

    UUUUGGGGGH everyone looks so PERFECT. This captures the look and feel of classic Digimon far better than anything Tri attempted (not that it was bad, just different).

    I believe they got back the original character designer from Adventure.

    Four Dark Lords. Hundreds of monsters. Five teens. One huge adventure.

    The great irony being that these were the elements that made both Adventure and Adventure 02 the hits that they were. Not that I would trust them to produce an interesting interpretation of the digital world (the worldbuilding for the digital world was offensively bad in any follow up season since, in my opinion) or to represent the digimon as characters in an interesting manner, but it would definitely make more sense if more focus was on them since it would be an easier way to produce more interesting scenes.
