During the Kizuna commentary stream, one of the things announced was 'Digimon Partners', an official fan community site.

It will open on April 1st for Japan.

Kenji Watanabe mentioned hoping to be able to smooth out fan misunderstandings and have a place to communicate with fans officially.

Producer Kinoshita hopes it will be able to launch outside of Japan gradually.


More to come!

"Misunderstandings"? To... clear to the fans? Interesting. I'd like to join this.

Maybe I can finally put a rest to my questions (Ancient topics buried within WTW)?

But launch outside of Japan gradually? There'll be English version of that website? Not sure which to join first? Or wait for the translation?

This seems like a pretty bad idea...
I pray that this all goes well for them.

Oh...okay?

Not sure what the point would be aside from cutting out middlemen like Twitter if they suddenly collapse or something.

Humm, this is interesting. I'm curious. I wonder how "official" it will be.

With The Will will always be better, though 😌.

Uhhh err.. Why sound so... Negative, guys? Isn't it good to clear misunderstandings before it piles up filling up with regrets or something like that...

To be honest, I can finally post "unsolved" mysteries until I'm satisfied with all answers from that! Not in my dream anymore.

Maybe you can ask them about it on the new community platform? Who knows lol.

Agree that a 02-focused sequel would be very cool though.

While on the surface transparency and dialogue sounds like a good idea, I also think inviting fans to bombard the creators with questions and opinions might not be a great idea in practice.

Yeah, I remember when people wouldn't leave Konaka alone

This sounds like a good idea but it could easily fail. But we'll see what happens.

I get this perspective, but it's not like Twitter doesn't already do that. This way at least they have control over the way the questions and how they respond to them. I would imagine it might be an extension of what the main site does now anyway, with official polls and the like, just maybe broadened to submitting questions or whatever.

That said, hope it fares better than those Bamco forums from a few years ago lol.

The only thing I want out of this is an explanation of Dorbickmon and Jazamon’s names.

Didn’t they answer Dorbickmon already? That he was named by the anime staff and so they don’t know?

What misunderstandings does Digimon even have?
Mostly the name origin, I guess. I still remember when people thought Jesmon is based on Jesus, lol
Or that Leopardmon was Hitler. That's prob the most ridiculous thing the fan base went with for years. It was stated on Wikimon for a decade.
? I always thought it was a symbol of France due to the Leopard Motif (early heraldry in France called lions "leopards") and they just gave it a German name because "all of Europe must be the same"?

In fact, I just looked and Duftmon's designer confirmed it had a French motif, though I can see how people would be confused given the name.

Its name and attacks are all in German (though its swords are Japanese in terms of naming).

That's probably it.
