Just one day left...

For Day 7 of Digimonukkah we have something from earlier this year that collected pre-existing content...

It's the Digimon Adventure tri. Blu-ray Box!

The box (and a DVD equivalent) were released on February 4th, 2020.



Scanning was done as high quality as I could do, and compressed and shrunk to reasonable sizes, along with reasonable quality JPG compression. I've explained my workflow in my personal thread and will answer any questions involving it or the processes used.

The embedded files are smaller JPGs from our gallery, so those shouldn't have any bandwidth issues. Click the images for big versions.

The scans went relatively well and there were no oddities or issues.



The Digimon Adventure tri. Blu-ray Box was released in the leadup to Kizuna coming out in theaters in Japan. This was a lower cost re-release that was advertised specifically as not having new content, simply a more affordable 'buy it in one' re-release before the new movie was out.


While it doesn't have anything new, it does at least present things decently...



We start with.... an obi card!



The obi card itself uses the same style that the other tri. disc releases did, completely covering 3 sides, with a triangle on the front.

It uses the various tri. digital motif that other releases did, and contains all the information so the release itself will be relatively clean.



The tri. singles had relatively clear slipcovers, this one comes with an outer box...


The outer box is a 5 sided box. It's blue and the only art on it is Omegamon, Taichi, and Yamato from the tri. Part 1 theatrical poster. The front also has the tri. logo in white. Part of the art is carried over to the bottom of the box.

It uses the tri. digital motif throughout, and the spine has a vertical flat version of the tri. logo.



When you pull out the digipak inside the box you get 2 nice pieces of art...



The early tri. traincar promotional art is on the right, while the 2nd tri. Part 6 theatrical poster is on the right. The spine has the vertical logo once again.

These are among 2 of the better known pieces of art from tri., and they work well here, and were used here to match the overall theme of the package, which is using a lot of nice tri. art.



The side that holds the discs...

The blue theme continues to the disc holders. They are clear plastic that shows the tri. motif underneath.


It holds multiple discs in the same space, but nicely, uses a hinge system rather than stacking the discs...



When you open it up you see discs 1 and 4.


Page flaps are designed to go outwards with discs 2 and 3 on the left and discs 5 and 6 on the right.

I would have preferred something more standalone, but I prefer this to discs being layered on top of eachother, and the stacked page digipaks don't feel quite as solid as this, so not a bad solution for 6 discs.



You already see them above, so here are scans of the discs themselves.

The disc labels use the art from each part's theatrical poster rather than the monochrome the original geenral releases used. The art has been framed decently for each one. The legal details are kept on a white border on the edge of each disc.

Of note, the digital tri. motif has been made to stand out a bit more than it was, using a more vivid white, similar to the original discs.


The release also included a booklet...



The front features the tri. logo in black and a key art image of Taichi and Agumon that was used quite a bit early on in tri.



The first six spreads in the booklet are each dedicated to one of the six parts of tri.

Each has the theatrical poster on the left side. The right side has the synopsis that was released before each part came out, screenshots, and the extras that are on each disc.

Each looks rather nice, and it's a fun and good looking way to do disc contents.



The last 3 spreads shows off the covers for the original general release of each part of tri. The first 5 each show the characters who generally got focus in that part of tri., with the final one being everyone on the train car again.

Each one mentions they are from the BD/DVD release, lists what part they are from, and lists that Uki Atsuya drew them.



And the back of the booklet...



Another familiar piece of tri. artwork! This time it's the Digimon on the phone booths, another piece of art we saw a lot early in tri.

Cast and Staff credits for tri. are included on the top left.






For most years since tri. was announced we've gotten a Digimon Blu-ray box early in the year. Right before Kizuna comes out, having tri. be the one for 2020 made a lot of sense. It was the most recent material at the time, it wouldn't require much in the way of marketing, and in this case, it's simply advertised as 'buy it once' priced down re-release.

The package is, as announced, not with anything new contained, but the different disc labels and the booklet featuring the various poster and home video art is at least a nice way to use assets that already exists.


Disc specifications, screencaps, extras, and going over anything else on the Blu-rays are contained in the prior breakdowns. Since each disc should be the same as stand alone versions released previously, elements from those articles should apply here:
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 1- Reunion
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 2- Determination
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 3- Confession
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 4- Lost
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 5- Coexistence
Digimon Adventure tri. Part 6- Our Future



In it's first week of release the Digimon Adventure tri. Blu-ray Box sold 401 copies, about in-line with what you would expect for this sort of 'no new content' re-release (moreso since the most recent tri. Blu-ray had only come out 2 years prior.)


They are repeating what they did here with the 2021 Blu-ray box, "Digimon Adventure 1999-2001 Blu-ray Box", a release containing the prior Blu-rays for Adventure, 02, and the movies from both.

The individual Japanese tri. blu-rays take up more shelf space than I'd like, so when this was announced I almost considered double-dipping for the sake of having everything in one smaller box. It's a great option for newcomers, especially since the on-disc extras are identical. The new booklet's a bit of a letdown, though. The artwork, character sketches, design gallery, storyboards, production notes, and cast/staff comments from the original booklets make the individual blu-rays the clear winner.

Having said that, if I didn't already own tri. I'd definitely go with this all-in-one box to save money and shelf space. But having looked at the scans, I'm satisfied with my original purchase. Thanks for the breakdown! Fingers crossed they do something similar once the 2020 Adventure: series is completed!
