And here's the end of Digimonukkah 2020...

For Day 8 of Digimonukkah it's something that's just... fun. And tied into something that's been a big thing in 2020 for Digimon fans...

When we did our breakdown of the Japanese Deluxe Blu-ray release of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, we mentioned we would revisit content as we could.
After the breakdown itself there was the translation of the audio drama.

So to finish Digimonukkah 2020 it's the 'Thanks from Staff' booklet that came with the Deluxe version of Kizuna in Japan. It contains art from a number of staff members as a way to to say thanks for supporting the movie.

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.

Scanning this time went very smoothly. Scanning went well, editing went smoothly. In fact, it went so smoothly I did some extra cleaning up on some of them.

All images in the article are smaller copies from our gallery (to keep loading sizes smaller for everyone), but link to the full sized versions when clicked. The pages have been put in the main Kizuna Deluxe Blu-ray section of the gallery.

Big thanks to onkei for translating everything from the booklet.

The cover, above is relatively clean and just includes the pseudo digital square motif that was used elsewhere on the Kizuna Deluxe Blu-ray.

The first internal page is an index of everyone who did art for the booklet.

On to the art!

The last page of the booklet is just a gray page with the Kizuna logo and the digital motif.

The back cover continues the orange/yellow version of the digital motif from the front.

The booklet was a really nice item to include in the deluxe version of the Kizuna Blu-ray, as it adds a really nice personal touch to have a bit of art & messages from almost 2 dozen staff members.
