With a few months to go until release, we have a look (2) at the cover to the upcoming Digimon Adventure 1999-2001 Blu-ray box!
The cover art is new artwork by Yukiko Iijima, who is credited for various art related positions in Adventure and 02 including art director, art design, and background design (these may have all been under the same credit, or changed from place to place, as various places seem to only list one of these at a time, etc.)
The side featuring Adventure has Koromon waiting for Taichi who is about to arrive in the digital world and we can see the traditional Adventure style digital world. The other side features Daisuke and Chibimon running and playing on the beach at sunset with various scenery reflected in the water.
The art for both sides is very different than what we've gotten for Blu-ray boxes in the past (although Daisuke 'is' running..) and give off a really calm, fancy, and classy look. They feel like they'd make great prints, so hopefully we see something like that used. And it'll be interesting to see if we get more art from Iijima in the set, as her art for the front and back of the box really looks fantastic.
Digimon Adventure 1999-2001 includes the Blu-rays from prior Adventure and 02 TV & Movie releases in one large box. New art will be used on the box and the discs will have new labels. The disc content themselves will be the same, and the included booklet will be made from re-edited existing material.
The box will be released on March 6th, 2021 (the day before the 22nd Anniversary of Digimon Adventure beginning.)
The price is given as an 'affordable price' for an anime Blu-ray box of this size (but still not cheap), 39,800 yen. This is under the cost of the standalone Blu-ray series boxes that Adventure, 02, Tamers, and Frontier each had (and also cheaper than the standalone DVD boxes the shows had gotten prior to Blu-rays.)
Pre-orders are currently open at CDJapan. (affiliate link)
