The early shipping products for the Memorial Story crowdfunding project have begun to ship and images began to show up a bit earlier in the day.

Once we have proper scans we'll go through everything (most of it is text), but for now a preview with the images showing off new artwork from the booklet.


Any translations will follow as time allows.



First up, 2 pages featuring illustrations and comments from 4 creators closely connected to Digimon to help celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Digimon Adventure.

The first page features:

Kenji Watanabe- Longtime Digimon designer who has been around for the history of the franchise and continues to do new designs (including for the new movie.)
He's drawn the Adventure Digimon working on the new movie.

Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru- Character designer for Digimon Adventure, 02, Tamers, and Frontier, the new movie, along with other Digimon materials. Also well known for his work on Dragon Ball Z and GT.
He's drawn Taichi and Agumon in a familiar art style.

The second page features:

Takaaki Yamashita- Animation director for the original Adventure movie annd Children's War Game (plus character design for War Game), along with key animation for Adventure 02, and scenery design for Diablomon Strikes Back.
He's drawn Taichi (it appears he went with a look akin to War Game.)

Tenya Yabuno- The artist for Digimon V-Tamer and C'mon Digimon, who designed a number of early Digimon characters.
He's drawn the main leads from his manga, Digimon Adventure V-Tamer, along with a small butter-fly.



And last up...

Information and production materials to act as a preview for Memorial Story 5- The Shibuya-ish Heroic Saga of Pump and Gotsu. This was the story that originally had a hidden title until roughly half a year ago.

And we get to see the new designs for Pump and Gotsu which had been teased a bit in the past.

Some of the text does tease 'what' is happening by musing on 'if' they evolved, and what the story is behind the encounter... but the designs speak for themselves on how fun and ludicrous they look.


Some neat art to show off in the booklet.


More to come...


Thanks to a baidu user for the images.

Yeah I was expecting we’d just get like NoblePumpmon or something, definitely wasn’t expecting those designs. I love them so much though, it’s going to be hilarious seeing what it is they’re going to be up to in the short lol.

Look like Pumpmon and Gotsumon went to the wrong universe and ended up being horror mons instead of evolutions.

Those are hilarious possible evos. Also I do enjoy the Digimon dressed up in clothes art we see sometimes. Always fun.

Man, the War Game art looks sooooo good! Imagine how a full series in that style would look.
Also love Nakatsuru’s nod to Dragon Ball in that artwork😁👍

Please tell me that this Pumpmon and Gottsumon will become real Digimon. They're too good to be used for one small short that I'm not even sure we'll ever even see released here. It kills me that I'll never see this now.
Is taichi Super Saiyan, lol?

I didn't realize until now that Pumpmon has three words,"Die ??? Death" on its shirt and I really cannot make out the middle word.

Maybe this is the Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon that Myotismon banish in season 1?
Naturally. It wouldn’t be some random other Pumpmon and Gotsumon. I doubt the short is canon, but presumably they were reborn like Leomon was.
