Been awhile since they announced this...

But it's finally a time for an update on 'Digimon Thanksgiving 2018 - Special Meeting in Odaiba.'

The first six guests have been announced as Chika Sakamoto (Agumon), Mayumi Yamguchi (Gabumon), Natsuki Hanae (Taichi), Yoshimasa Hosoya (Yamato), Ayumi Miyazaki, and AiM!

More guests will be announced later.


Digimon Thanksgiving is, by all appearances, a replacement for DigiFes, the yearly Digimon event that began in 2014. It'll be interesting to see what ends up happening there, since we are waiting on a number of potential fun things in the franchise.



It takes place Sunday, July 29th at the United Cinemas Aqua City Odaiba at 6pm (with doors opening 30 minutes earlier.)


Tickets will be done via a lottery from eplus. If someone is chosen they can buy up to 2 tickets for 5,000 yen each.

The lottery opens June 1st at 6pm and closes June 12th at 11:59pm. Winners will be contacted between June 16th and June 18th and have between June 16th and June 18th to pay for their tickets.

so what's the difference between Digimon Thanksgiving and DigiFes and why Thanksgiving is replacing Digifes?

My guess is that it's basically the same thing, with the name change implying that they'll use the event to thank fans for supporting tri. and then reveal whatever the new project is.

I actually appreciate the name change, because the origin of the DigiFes was Digimon Adventure Festival and su subsequently it was mainly focused in Adventure, 02 and tri., so this may imply the festival will be more inclusive onwards involving the rest of the anime seasons, manga and videogames in the franchise too. I like it!

I have and feeling that Tri soundtrack will come out at Digimon Thanksgiving. DigiFes was always time when Digimon music released.

I completely forgot this was a thing until now. Hopefully they'll use this event to show off the new anime project and games. I'm still surprised we haven't gotten a release date for rearise yet.

Thats awesome to hear. I wonder why they haven't said anything on twitter about the release date. The last thing they said was that we would hear more about a release date in early june

i think that they might not sure if they can commit to release the game in this date so they want to wait until they are sure that they will be ready by that date to release the game before telling us a date and then they might need to change it
