We finally have a bunch of details for DigiFes 2021!


The live portion will be at the Yokosuka Arts Theater on August 1st. Doors open at 4:30pm, and the event starts at 5:30pm.

They had previously announced that DigiFes would also be streaming this year, but no specific updated regarding that are given at the moment.

Tickets are 11,000 yen each.

Digimon Partner members can apply to be able to buy a ticket early.
The ticket lottery will run May 21st to June 1st. If you are chosen to buy one you'll be contacted between June 5th and 7th and have until the 8th to pay. Only one ticket can be reserved this way.

'Standard' Advance tickets will be able to purchase also, also via lottery.
These will be available June 2nd to June 9th. You'll be contacted between June 12th and 14th if you are chosen, and you'll have to the 15th to pay. Two tickets can be reserved.





Then we have the guests!

The guests are a wide collection of cast members from Digimon Tamers, and the updated 02 cast from Kizuna, along with a number of Digimon related musicians. There will be talking portions, singing, and various things to "liven up the summer of Digimon!"

A number of them have other roles in the franchise, we are just listing the main role they had in either Tamers or as the 02 cast members in Kizuna.

Makoto Tsumura (Takato), Aoi Tada (Terriermon), Mayumi Yamaguchi (Jianliang), Fumiko Orikasa (Ruki), Yoko Asada (Juri), Hiroki Takahashi (Impmon), Tomoko Kaneda (Culumon), Susumu Chiba (Yamaki), Masako Nozawa (Guilmon, Pre-recorded)

Fukujuro Katayama (Daisuke), Junko Noda (V-mon), Arthur Lounsbery (Ken), Naozumi Takahashi (Wormmon)

Ayumi Miyazaki, AiM, Michihiko Ohta, Masataka Fujishige (WILD CHILD BOUND), Takayoshi Tanimoto


A wide variety of guests that cover basically the gamut of the entire anime from beginning to now.



Update- An interview with Makoto Tsumura and Seki Hiromi that went up on Digimon Partners appears to reveal another event happening at DigiFes.

Much of it goes over the type of things you'd expect in an interview of this kind. But towards the end Tsumura mentions that while she doesn't know the content of it yet, there were plans for a Tamers drama performance at DigiFes. She seems mostly interested in finding out if she will be playing 'adult' Takato, who only got a few lines in Tamers 2018.

Update- Konaka has confirmed he is writing the audio drama. As of right now he hasn't turned in the final draft yet.



We're a little over 2 months from DigiFes 2021, and with the lineup, it's really looking to be fun (the musical lineup especially is quite wide, so hopefully we get a ton of performances.)

More to come!

Too cool! I was expecting a bit of Tamers representation, but this guest list seems to confirm that it'll be the star of the show this year. Move over, Adventure! COVID restrictions are gearing back up in Japan, making the next few months uncertain, so I'm not very surprised that Nozawa's appearance will be pre-recorded. (Either that, or she's just busy.) What does surprise me is the lack of representation from any members of the Adventure: 2020 cast/crew (aside from Yamaguchi and Tanimoto, who are likely here for their contributions to Tamers). I mean, I thought the current show was the current hotness! I suppose that really does prove more than anything that DigiFes is for the nostalgic adult fans. Strange that they're keeping some of the 02 LAST EVOLUTION cast on board, but I'm not complaining. Can we get some character songs for these guys, please?

A cast reunion and mini-drama performance at DigiFes is about what I expected for a Tamers anniversary celebration. This gives me hope for a Frontier reunion next year, and I'll be sad if it doesn't happen.

But towards the end Tsumura mentions that while she doesn't know the content of it yet, there were plans for a Tamers drama performance at DigiFes. She seems mostly interested in finding out if she will be playing 'adult' Takato, who only got a few lines in Tamers 2018.
I took a quick peek at the interview, and it's vague, but I think this may be the first kinda-sorta official hint we've gotten that...
adult Takato is meant to be that distorted, disembodied voice who speaks to Guilmon and Terriermon in the 2018 CD drama.
I mean, that was always the most logical assumption to make, but I remember Konaka being really secretive about it when the drama CD was first released.

So if we won’t be able to go to Japan to attend, should we still apply for tickets to watch it online? Or are the tickets only for the live event?

Nothing specific regarding the stream has been announced at this time, minus that there will be a stream.

It could be free, it could be paid, etc.

Hmmm I see. So overseas fan should hold off on entering the ticket lottery for now?

According to the website: オンライン配信チケットではありません which Google Translate tells me it means this is not an online delivery ticket...does that mean this current ticket that’s being lotteried right now is not for the online stream?
