A new Digimon Blu-ray box has been announced for 2021!

Digimon Adventure 1999-2001 Blu-ray Box will contain all 104 episodes of Digimon Adventure and Zero-Two, and all 4 of the movies from their original run on 18 discs.

The disc contents are listed as:
Digimon Adventure- TV Series, 54 episodes
Digimon Adventure 02- TV Series, 50 episodes
Digimon Adventure (the movie)- Movie
Digimon Adventure: Our War Game- Movie
Digimon Adventure 02: Hurricane Touchdown- Movie
Digimon Adventure 02: Revenge of Diablomon- Movie
Video Bonus Features



Included will be:
A three-sided box with new artwork.
New picture labels for the discs.
A special booklet (the contents will be reedited content from the pre-existing Adventure and 02 Blu-ray boxes.)


Video bonus features will be from the pre-existing sets and include:
Clean OPs and EDs
Ending Card
Commercial Promotions, Program Notices, and Trailers
First Time Broadcast Notices


The so called 'pseudo' (upscaled) 5.1 audio for Digimon Adventure (the movie) and Digimon Adventure: Our War Game is listed as an audio benefit.


They also clarify that the disc contents will be the same as the prior Blu-ray releases:
Digimon Adventure 15th Anniversary Blu-ray Box
Digimon Adventure 02 15th Anniversary Blu-ray Box
Digimon the Movies Blu-ray Volume 1
Digimon the Movies Blu-ray Volume 2



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)




A number of Japanese stores will also have exclusive items if you want to buy from them...
Amazon Japan- Newly drawn wall scroll
Animate (In store and online)- A4 size microfiber towel
Animate Online- Set of 2 acrylic blocks (Online buyers also get the towel)
Rakuten Books- Acrylic Stand
Seven Net Shopping- Acrylic Plate
Tsutaya Records (some stores will not have it, so in store buyers will have to confirm with their store) and Tsutaya Online- A4 Size Clear File
AmiAmi Online Shop- F3 Size Canvas Art



Art to come, hopefully soon!

Mostly in real world
So does this mean it will have hq sharpness like the screencaps shown here?

These are the same promotional screencaps they always use.

And of course, horribly aliased edges like that would be junky for actual animation.

Huh... I mean, I guess it’s nice for someone who missed out or passed on the original Blu-ray set, but I didn’t think the demand would be high enough for a reprint already.

I'd love to tell myself that profits from these could potentially fund future blu-ray sets for Savers, Xros Wars, or Appmon, but if I were a betting man I'd wager this is a cost-effective effort to recoup the money that was put into the Tamers and Frontier sets. Not that they bombed or anything like that, but sales did decrease with each new blu-ray box (and resulted in a couple of minor corner-cutting efforts in Frontier's set).

The existing blu-rays for Adventure and Zero Two could stand to be improved (especially the movies), but all signs point to the on-disc content remaining unchanged. With that in mind, I already own the previous sets so I can save my money and enjoy looking at the new boxart.

Darn, was really excited until I saw it's for Japan release and not US. I really wish Shout Studios or someone would take the first 3 seasons and the movies up and re-dub them to release them on Blu-ray.

Come to think of it, I wonder if Happinet might begin doing this with all of their Digimon home video releases going forward. First tri. was re-released as an "all in one" blu-ray box and now this. I haven't yet pre-ordered the first blu-ray volume of the 2020 show, and now I'm thinking I might take the gamble of waiting a few years for a "budget price" re-release of the entire series when it's finished. (I say "budget price" with quotes because I'll still be paying hundreds of dollars, but if this 1999-2001 re-release and the tri. re-release are any indication it'll be way cheaper than buying the volumes separately.)
