Digimon is 23 Years Old!



The original V-Pets came out on June 26th, 1997. (Posting it a bit early since it's the 26th in Japan and a few other places already.)


Later today we expect pre-orders to go up for the Digivice:, a fun way to celebrate the anniversary, along with the teaser Bandai put up yesterday.

No art from Bandai yet as they've done the last few years, so we will see what pops up later.


Feel free to share any Digimon memories you'd like to!


And on top of that, news of the 3rd wave of US 20th V-Pets recently showed up (last year we didn't even have wave 1.)

This year we also had a new movie, a new show began, and we are waiting for a new game, so lots to look forward towards.




The social media anniversary art they put up fort he last few years.

Left is from the 20th, middle is from the 21st, right is from the 22nd. Hopefully we get a new one!

happy birthday, Digimon! On August 1st I'll be 23 too!
I'm so excited for whatever Digimon reveal is happening later. Today is my first day at a new job and I'm gonna wear my Digimon shirt underneath my uniform polo shirt to celebrate and as a good luck charm for the mystery reveal

Oh. The V-Pets. I was thinking "It's not August." Heh. But I do hope we get a new picture. Those are fun.

Happy birthday!

23 years isn't particularly old for franchises right? Even with so many new ones that have come out lately. Lol.

Happy birthday, so many fond memories over the years. Fun fact: Digimon is still in the top 100 highest-grossing media franchises in the world.
