It appears season 1 sold well enough that New Video has confirmed they will be doing season 2.

Information from New Video regarding the set

Four years after Tai, Mimi and the rest of the DigiDestined brought peace to the digital world and found their way back home, the Digimon Emperor–a new villain–threatens the world and its Digital Monsters. With some the original kids off to junior high, a new generation is chosen to defend and save the world from evil. Davis, Yolei, Cody, and Ken join T.K and Kari to form the new Digidestined team. Together they journey back to the Digital World to battle the Digimon Emperor and free all the Digital Monsters from his control.
For the first time ever DIGIMON ADVENTURE SEASON 02 (the direct sequel to Digimon Adventure Season 01) is available in an 8-disc official collector’s set, complete with all 50 episodes
The MSRP will be the same as season 1 at $79.95 (so keep an eye out for sales, I'll do what I can to keep an eye out for everyone.)

The set will be released on March 26th, 2013, which is the same day that the second volume release of season 1 is coming out.

The set is confirmed to have extras, but we don't know what they are yet.

Update- Preorder is up at Amazon for Season 2 Pre-order right now is at $56. If you preorder at Amazon you get the lowest price they do inbetween your preorder and the release (and you can always cancel.) No sign of Season 2 elsewhere yet.


Update 2- Got this a few days ago, but got busy and forgot to upload it. Thanks to WTK for reminding me about it.

The cover for New Video's release of Season 2 has been updated with some color differences and some moving around of the images on the cover.

WOAH DANG. Since S1 was doing well I expected S2 to be released, but this is one heck of a turnaround.

Season 2 wasn't my most favorite season, but the fact that they included Mimi in that blurb even though she doesn't appear often makes me want to go out and buy it a.s.a.p

So... Ken teams up with T.K. and Kari to fight the Digimon Emperor, eh? :p

Another set with more bland-looking, generic artwork.:rolleyes:

Based on the first DVD set, I guess we can expect at least 11 episodes to be missing their pre-episode recaps, and at least 6 of those to not have openings at all.

Also, are we gonna be seeing "SnowBotamon" and "Rockmon" or "YukimiBotamon" and "Golemon" in the analyzer screens of this set?

It's good to see that you guys are getting Season 2. Since the original set seems to have done well enough for them to release this, there is still hope for it coming over here.

Always nice to see the negativity.

Don't try and let any positiveness pop in, you may not be able to take it.

Aw, come on, I was joking about the first bit.;)

And the last one was an honest question, since that episode first aired with the incorrect analyzer screens.

It was more in response to the comment about the recaps.

Most shows don't get their recaps on DVDs at all. The fact we got most of them is a positive.

As for the analyzer... either one works for me.

I don't see why they wouldn't be included on these sets since the dub had recaps for each and every episode. Only reason some episodes didn't on the first set was because those certain episodes didn't air their recaps in the initial airings of those episodes, as said initial airings were part of special events held on Fox Kids at the time, with the reruns being ordinary airings and having the recaps (and openings) put back in for their ordinariness.:p

It seems as though these DVD sets are using masters taken from the premiere airings, and so had Fox/Saban not cut out the recaps/openings for these special occasions, they likely would have been included on the DVDs. But since they didn't, those select episodes feel incomplete, especially to those who like the witty remarks written into the recaps. Without them, there's a feeling of lacking in the wholeness of the content.

So just to point out.

Your complaint is the episodes are on the DVDs as originally aired, rather than later revisions.

Not every first airing was flawless.;)

It did bother me as a child that there weren't any recaps during all of "The Battle for Both Worlds", as it felt like something was missing since I was so used to seeing them. The full content of the episodes felt incomplete to me.

Never said first airings were flawless. But at some point the question becomes... what exactly are we asking for?

They have proper copies of the show as originally aired. They aren't going to go digging to find a recap that may or may not even exist on any tapes they have access to, especially when, as established, most shows don't put their recaps on DVDs anyways.

Plus, the aforementioned analyzer screen error with "SnowBotamon" and "Rockmon" instead of "YukimiBotamon" and "Golemon". It was the reruns that corrected this. Consistency is a lovely thing.:)

Considering those airings were generally cut down, I'll take the errors.

Be nice to you know... consistently have the original dub cuts.

Hmm, now that you mention it, do you remember which Saturday morning it was that Fox Kids aired the Digi-Bowl?

Unless there was one before it, I think that was the first rerun airing of the Aquilamon episode that had the corrected screens to it. If it was that one, I think the only changes made to that episode from its original airing were the fixed screen names.

I'm trying to remember if it was before or after 9/11, which we all know spurred even further editing to the episodes than originally aired. But, I'm not sure. ^_^'

That's sort of the point though...

If they go looking for 'fixed' copies that aired later on, we all know we are gonna get cut down episodes that had one or two positive edits, because they won't know the difference minus the one or two 'changes' they are specifically looking for.

I'm happy with originally aired (no idea what we are getting for Season 2, I'm just commenting.)

Wait, missing openings? Was that an issue with S1, because I swear I watched the opening to each ep...

Super nitpicking, but I hope they re-organize the final layout for the box; switch TK and Kari's places so it looks a tad more balanced? Or at least turn Gatomon around so she's in formation there. I wonder why they felt the need to lob off Yolei and Veemon's arms when they aren't actually blocking anything.
