The prior thread explaining the cancellation of the Kizuna screenings can be found here. (They've said they plan to reschedule, but the initially announced screenings are cancelled.)


A few different people wanted a thread to be able to discuss how they are keeping busy with various areas having 'stay home' orders due to Coronavirus (or just staying home in general), changes for them and others, and maybe just to post their thoughts, etc. so it seemed like it warranted a thread.



Any discussion of politics, trying to stir up trouble or arguments, etc. will simply be removed.





A few different things for people to do if you are finding yourself with more time than you are used to. (Various deals will expire, and we will try and add new things as possible. Feel free to toss in your own if you've seen anything.)


First, some free selections.


On Sunday at 2pm Pacific we will be doing a 'not quite' the WtW Podcast.



Original podcast co-host Victor will be returning and we will just be talking about movies, comics, games, etc. until we are largely sick of eachother. We don't intend to talk about Digimon too much, as there will be a normal podcast episode soon. It will be live here.

The WtW Discord is also always open to chat.



GOG has put up a page with all the free games in their catalog you can nab to pay. There are a number of decent titles here.

A number of games are currently free to own on Steam: (there are more, but this is some of the high points at the moment)
Tomb Raider (the 2013 reboot)
Lara Croft and Temple of Osiris
Drawful 2
Deiland
Headsnatchers



Pluto TV and Tubi are both decently known ad supported TV and movie streaming services, both have a decent amount of anime in their catalogs.

Audible has put up a significant amount of audiobooks up for free streaming.


Various services have extended free trials that may be worth looking into. There are to many to try and list, but feel free to suggest any you use, and if you know of any extended trial codes that work at the moment.


Our various leadups we've been doing in the leadup to Kizuna and Adventure: features a number of anime shows and films that we've provided streaming links to. (The link is to the most recent leadup, at the bottom of each post is a list of prior ones.)



A few options that will cost a bit.

A number of newer theatrical films will be made early for rental or purchase. The price thus far for these seems to be $20 across the board. We're linking to Vudu, but your digital movie store of choice likely has the same films and prices. Right now the lineup is Onward, The Invisible Man, The Hunt, and Emma, but more will be added shortly including Sonic the Hedgehog, The Way Back, Bloodshot, Birds of Prey, Trolls World Tour, and likely more.

Doom 64, the 'original' 3rd Doom game just got it's first port/re-release on PC for $5. If you don't want to play Doom Eternal yet, it's a great choice to try some Doom you quite likely have never played.


Humble Bundle has a number of bundles at the moment, with tiers beginning at a dollar, but a couple of interest:
Capcom Mega Bundle- A bunch of Capcom games on PC.
Fairy Tail & More- Fairy Tail and other manga by Hiro Mashima.




And also various places to watch Digimon at. There have been changes in these lately, so these could always change.


Starz has Season 2 and Frontier both on their own service, along with Starz add-on via various products (Hulu, etc.)

Outside of 02 and Frontier at Starz, there are still some decent options for some recent Digimon content including:
Xros Wars (and Hunters) at Crunchyroll subtitled
Appmon at Crunchyroll subtitled

tri. subbed and dubbed all over the place: (just posting a couple, as it's quite easy to find tri.)
Subbed at Crunchyroll
Subbed and dubbed on Blu-ray (affiliate link)

Fusion and Data Squad are also still available to purchase digitally from a number of storefronts for anyone who wants digital copies: (Amazon ones are affiliate links, others are not.)


All the Digimon TV DVDs are still orderable at Amazon at the moment, although a number of them are out of print, and will likely become harder as time goes on: (affiliate links)
Digimon Season 1 (Adventure)
Digimon Season 2 (Zero-Two)
Digimon Season 3 (Tamers)
Digimon Season 4 (Frontier)
Digimon Season 1 thru 4 Boxset
Digimon Data Squad
Digimon Fusion Season 1
Digimon Fusion Season 2

I’ve been rewatching Appmon, since I had never tried out the official subtitles on Crunchyroll. The subtitles are pretty flavorful with some very amusing phrasing at times, I rather like them. I have also been playing a LOT of Dragon Quest games and already torn through a good deal of my backlog of those. Good times are being had over here!

what websites still offer Digimon anime legally?
There are a lot of sites out there, but my recommendations is to buy the whole seasons on Amazon or any other major supplier.

Probably since a lot of Japanese companies are asking employees to work from home because of virus which sucks a lot.

Too soon! :p

I'm planning to rewatch Tamers and Frontier since it's been years. Also thinking of checking out X-Evolution as I've never seen the movie.

Well, after having no milk availability for a couple weeks, I was finally able to buy milk again. So that's a thing. Stores finally added limits to many of the commonly hoarded items here.

Pokémon Go has been useful lately. Their Battle League is now freely repeatable with increased chances of the current legendary. Also, since most areas I'm aware of with stay-home orders in the US still permit being out for exercise like walking (incidentally also recommended by the CDC), it gives an excuse for some fresh air,

I’m finally watching Frontier and working on my Yamato/Tsunomon cosplay. Was going to wear it to the screening yesterday, but since it’s been canceled/rescheduled I’m taking the time to make it extra awesome.
new here but I’m assuming pics and stuff for that belong in a different thread lol

Unfortunately I haven't been able to do anything related to Digimon aside from watching the first episode of the new series. I've been passing time playing Playstation 4 games and Dragon Ball Legends on my phone. I'm also waiting for the release of the hardcover version of Batman: Last Knight on Earth but I'm pretty sure it will be delayed like most products that were supposed to come out in these days. I'd also like to get out to at least walk my dog in the neightborhood, but since I'm sick (not Corona) and people are a bit paranoid I prefer to not take any chances outside.

Not in my case, the only person that is working is a friend of mine, bt he's a doctor. Please, stay safe. Sounds like you are interacting with many people, so be as careful as possible.

I was in self quarantine for about 2 weeks, I decided to just self isolate to not come into contact with anyone especially at work, because of fears of catching this disease.

I get an email from my job this morning as I prepare to go back, that someone on my floor has the disease. I will definitely not be going back, especially when the company I work for did nothing to clean up the floor today and just wants to resume business as usual. There are still people working there and that’s what scares me. I was so upset, that I’m debating whether or not to just quit at this point and because of how poorly this has been handled. They have been implementing a work from home plan, but they should have done this last month when the city went into a state of emergency.

This whole situation is driving me crazy. Everything closed and I can't go anywhere because police are fining everyone that's outdoors for no reason. I'm also running out of things to do. I wish survive was out because I wouldn't even think of leaving my house lol. But I'm still keeping busy a bit by watching the digimon seasons again and again. I can never get enough lol.

Wow dang, you took the right choice not going in since someone in there caught it. I think not going back would be the right choice.
