Looks like Volume 2 of the smaller releases for season 1 finally has coverart.

It looks like they are using the same key art, changing the header to say volume 2, and tweaked two colors (the background, and the color bordering the logo.)

Lazy, but it makes sense considering these are being sold at budget prices and getting into brick and mortar stores.

If you want to preorder it, here you go- Digimon Adventure Season 1 Volume 2

It'll be released on March 26th, 2013. Retail price is $19.95.

That...actually seems like a bad idea? I could see a lot of people not paying this box attention because it still looks pretty much the same as the first one. The should have at least re-arranged the pictures like the Australian sets did, or used the Champion/Ultimate pics they used in the booklet.

Whatever the case, hope this does well for them.

It's not as bad idea as you think.

Cheap sets like these tend to be restocked and will set right next to eachother. The minor color differences will make them look different next to eachother.

Although it being 4 months early I wouldn't be shocked to find out this was just placeholder art.

Eh, if I get any of these DVDs, it'll probably be the big set with the booklet.

The complete box sets are the better deal, the first volume already sold out at my store. The booklet doesn't have any information we don't already know, character descriptions but the ages are different from the original Japanese I noticed.

Just out of curiosity, what are the ages in the dub? Also, does it say whether dub-Adventure takes place in 1998 or 02 takes place in 2003? I've always been a little confused about the altered timeline.

The English adaptation made the children about a year older than the original Japanese version, this is what is stated in the booklet so it isn't a mistake, just different from the original ages of the children.

The first encounter with a Digimon in the Adventure Movie was in 1995, YagamiTaichi was around seven, Hikari about four. Meaning Taichi would have been born around 1988 and Hikari, 1991. I believe he was made around twelve in the English adaptation, in the original Japanese Taichi was eleven in 1999 during the summer the children were transported to the Digital World, Hikari who didn't attend camp was eight, nine in the English version. Takenouchi Sora and Ishida Yamato are the same age as Taichi. Izumi Koushiro and Tachikawa Mimi were ten in 1999 during that summer, eleven in the dub. Kido Joe, the oldest was twelve in the original, thirteen in the dub. Finally, Takaishi Takeru was the same age as Hikari.

Digimon Adventure Zero Two took place three years in the original version and four years in the dub, meaning Taichi, Sora and Yamato were fourteen in the original, sixteen in the dub, Mimi and Koushiro are fifteen in the dub, Joe is seventeen and Hikari and Takeru are thirteen. This means it was 2002 in the Japanese version at the start of Zero Two and 2003 in the dub if you follow the storyline.

Yeah, I know the original timeline. I was just wondering what the dub had done - whether Adventure was pushed back or Adventure 02 was pushed forward.

Every time I see new DVDs coming out for you guys, it makes me want to cry a little more each time.
I really need to get a multi region dvd player again and import these. Or they be released here.

Yet, despite all this info of their ages being changed in the dub that we're talking about, not once in the Adventure dub were any of their ages spoken on screen.

Nor in the Zero Two dub, but that one did at least acknowledge it being four years after Adventure instead of three, along with T.K. saying that he was in 7th grade in episode 1.

The ages don't affect the show. It can affect licensing though.

I mean, if the altered ages didn't come from the show's dub itself, where did they come from?

I ask since I used to have (if I don't still have) some dub-based Digimon material (I think one was a magazine) that gave the ages and grades of the kids with Tai/Matt/Sora being 11 in 5th grade, Izzy/Mimi being 10 in 4th grade, Joe being 12 in 6th grade, and T.K. being 8 in 2nd grade (no Kari, as it was from before the 8th child arc). At the time, since it was almost completely centered around the English dub and Bandai of America content, I didn't think otherwise about those ages/grade being official for the English version. Now that I hear that their ages were altered, I'm curious about the original published source of the dub ages.:)

As I recall, multiple staff members on the show have said that often they got material for Bandai they had to use.

It's also possible it was done up in marketing information to get licensees signed on.

Ah, that makes sense. Though, was any of the dub age info made public back then?

Yeah, the lack of anything Digimon here in the UK these days is downright depressing.

Maybe it's the cynic in me, but it feels like anything other than the movie is a pipe dream.

The booklet also put dub Kari at the same age as dub Mimi though, from what I remember. Is that accurate as well, cuz I never got that feeling in either season of the show.

Even though I have the complete set, I was ecstatic to see the first set for sale at my local Wal-mart, actually in store. I really hope it sells wonders for them. Out of curiosity, do we have any idea how many individual sets Season One will have? I'd venture a guess at...three?

Mimi was 11 in the dub, 10 in the original, Kari was 9 in the dub and 8 in the original. There is about two years seperating them in age even in the original, Mimi being 10 and Kari 8.

The booklet in the complete season 1 box set has them both listed at 9, one of the mistakes I talked about. Their ages are never actually mentioned in the english version and I've seen a lot of material released here in the states over the years having them listed differently, it probally depends on who releases the material honestly. Look at the card games over the years released here, a lot of mistakes when we look at the original Japanese sources, that is what is going on here too I believe. Why I pride myself on citing the original Japanese sources personally, if your looking for complete accuracy.
