First of all, congratulations to both of you for creating such a great show! It's been a while since I've had time for podcasts so I haven't been able to follow you guys lately, but I look forward to catching up on everything I've missed :)

Just listened to the latest episode on youtube. I'm really out of the loop... Are you guys done with the podcast for good? If so, that's really a shame.
Have you guys considered covering new Digimon seasons in the future, like you did with Appmon? I'm sure I'm not the only one that would love to hear May & Jay's opinions on whatever new digimen Bandai comes up with :p

Nah, I have a plan!
1. The LiT feed will stay up with any new Digimon seasons/movies, but not with Jay as we're not as close as we once were. In addition, I will be going through the Tri movies as a commentary with Brady.
2. I'll also be doing Lost in Translationmoon in another feed with another friend at some point.

Thank you for listening! Hope I can continue to entertain with these new plans.

Annnndd I'm back after a well deserved break!

CommenTRIary 1 - And I Think I Saw a Two
May and Bray sit down to decide whether or not Koushiro and Tentomon are the main mega villians of all of Digimon, and Brady ships Yamato and Taichi.


This is a commentary track to watch along with Digimon Adventure Tri Chapter 1. We watched Japanese with English subtitles on BluRay.

CommenTRIary 2 - He's Wearing Somebody's Skin
May and Bray continue their watching of Tri with ‘Determination’ - Brady forgets who the characters are every five seconds and May explains everything. Gabumon takes off his skin and Gomamon puts on somebody skin, probably Leomon’s.


We’re no longer a clean podcast because Digimon no longer is a clean anime, thanks Rosemon.

Novel 1 - Aren't All Laptops Wireless?
Happy Odaiba Day 2019!
To celebrate Odaiba Day, we're starting up a new series - a reading of Onkei's translation of the Digimon Adventure novels!
This time we're reading the Prologue and the first two parts of Chapter 1.


Thanks again to Onkei for letting us read the translation on the podcast!

I've been meaning to read the novels for a while, and this was a good way to get into them. Thanks for the translation Onkei, and thank you for reading it May!

I recently started rewatching Adventure, and on this viewing it occured to me how strangely convenient it was that these seven kids just happened to be under the same roof and in the same place at the same time right before they're sucked into the Digital World. But this really gives a good amount of context for the whole Summer Camp thing and made the scenario more believable. The brief moments focusing on each character do an excellent job of establishing them too, showing us what kind of people they are and giving us early hints at the personal problems they'll have to overcome.

This almost feels like stuff that was meant to be in the first episode but got cut due to time constraints or something. Even the anime does well enough with its establishing character moments, but in all I think the novel did it better.

I totally agree, it just feels so right, and does a great job of introducing the characters to us.

I'm catching up and just finished Novel Episode 6.

Compared to the opening chapter expanding on the summer camp stuff, it's interesting how the novel then goes on to streamline Adventure's first arc by omitting all but Taichi and Jo's evolution episodes, instead opting to allude to the others as events that have already happened. Whereas those served to put every character in the spotlight and hint at their arcs in the anime, that's basically been done already here. Otherwise I guess there wasn't much point in telling the "X partnermon evolves to Adult form" story over and over. Apart from that the only major difference I recall is that Elecmon isn't hostile to Takeru and Patamon this time.

Also, I must say that I'm enjoying how you put on a different voice for every single character, making it easy to tell them apart!

Haven't updated this thread for a while, but I've been keeping up with the Digimon Adventure novel reading.

In addition to that, I've also started producing episodes reviewing the latest season of Digimon, Digimon Adventure:!
Here's our first episode

Also, I'm glad you're enjoying, wildwing64!

(new) Adventure: 1

Not sure if May is soliciting discussion or feedback on this thread.... but this is my LiTmon fehome. Anyway, totally psyched for the reboot.
I can say I like: the music, the animation, Takeru and Koushiro have the best new looks (they changed Takeru's helmet to a hat!). I think Sora has a good look too. Taichi, my favorite, I have to get used to in orange-ish shorts.... I'm used to brown. The first episode was good.

I loved the brooding Yamato in the background at the end of the episode, Kiriha-style. I'm okay with an emo Yamato. I want to give him a hug. I also liked the Yamato-themed closing credits. Hopefully everyone will get one?? I hope Hikari and Takeru get a mini-adventure on their own (of consequence... not filler) to work as a team without the older kids. I already totally love the rebooted Koushiro, he's adorable.

May, I've been listening to the novel translation episodes which have been great, and only have in queue the Halloween Shibuya-type Digimon and Tri Ep. 4 watch-alongs because they are more time-consuming and I need to be in the mood to watch-along.... Glad we have a new series to watch! But why no "Digimon Universe" branding on this show? Have they abandoned it already? Adventure is part of the "Universe"... It's too early for me to ask for speculation on who the big-bad will be for this story.... let's wait and see! Crunchyroll Saturday nights!

(new) Adventure 2

I think Koushiro has the cutest outfit in this series. I love his sneakers. Episode 2 was good. I'm interested to see where they're going with the Omegamon evolution...
