It's already August 1st in Japan, so... time for Odaiba Memorial! Or Odaiba Day, or Digimon Day, whichever name you use!
The last few years have been pretty good for Digimon fans. We've had a big movie, 2 recent TV series, the card game is doing well. On top of that there has been a new game based on Adventure, various game rereleases.
A brand new movie is a few months away that continues the Adventure timeline, the show has been remastered and released both dubbed and subbed (with subbed only just coming out last week), and Digimon the Movie getting a remaster (and new uncut dubs and subs). To say nothing of Adventure: getting a dub.
The franchise is at the moment on a general upswing that began with the Adventure 15th anniversary (making it once again one of the top franchises for Toei & Bandai), and it feels like anything could pop up at any time. With it being a few months until the 25th anniversary of Adventure, it means we're basically hitting the first point where things have been strong and relevant for an entire decade.
I know lots of people do art or other things on 8/1, so if you want to share feel free. Or just share any Digimon memories you have if you want to.
A lot of other fun stuff is coming up soon...
We are also retweeting various Digimon art people are posting today over on our Twitter.

A few cottony clouds slowly drift across the clear blue summer sky
Agumon, V-mon, & Loogamon appear happy as they look up.
The clouds there & the clouds over there look somewhat similar in shape
