With tri coming out soon (Discussion thread for tri is here) there are plenty of things happening and coming out.

First up, Animate cafe has started their Digimon theme and there are already great pictures.

Then we have news of a new tri. related book.

Smart Special Edit: Digimon Adventure Tri

This will retail for 2000 yen and Amazon JP has it up for preorder.

Amazon currently lists it as November 20th, but earlier had November 28th, so the date might change slightly.

The book appears to be more of a fan book type thing (it mentions interviews with celebrities who are Digimon fans). It's being presented by clothing brand "BEAMS" and men's fashion magazine "smart" (which apparently explains the outfits and the fact Gabumon has a scarf, sunglasses, and a hat....)

The book will also come with a double sided A3 size poster, stickers, and an Agumon themed pouch.

Thanks to various sources including bokutachi and Hoshiiya

This thread will be updated with more small-ish tri. related products and events that show up as tri. 1 is about to come out.

Oh man I hope I can get my hands on that book with the pouch. Super cute!
That may be one of the easiest tri. items to get honestly.

Just order it from Amazon Japan and it'll get to you a few days after release.

Oh man I didn't realise Amazon Japan shipped to other places. I feel thick now.

I’m all about that shit, tends to be extremely insightful, in stark contrast to how insipid the little one-paragraph press release nuggets from similar people are (even by American standards). Too bad these probably won’t get translated.

Lol Bandai is milking Tri for all its worth. Which is not surprising at all considering how much Digimon clothes exist on the Premium Bandai shop, and the Digimon Minis that were released for the last anniversary that were exclusive to the clothing store Uniqlo.

Gabumon looks like some sort of m'lady fedora meme though, and Matt's plaid shirt tucked under the sweater reminds me of Hey Arnold.

Bringing a Pokemon plush to a Digimon cafe is like some sort of blaspheme, or maybe that's just me remembering the silly Digimon vs Pokemon arguments from when I was 10.

Sure wish I was at the animate café, that would be so cool. Japan was so much fun.

I've seen some translations of interviews pop up on tumblr and other blogs from Magazines/sites for some of the interviews forvideogames like Cyber Sleuth so I hope they do get translated, but it probably won't happen. :/

That does look awesome. And a lot of fun. If only we could all go there right.

I actually tracked down a good picture of those badges/buttons super late last night, but was to tired to post.

Appears they will be a time limited release for 500 yen.

so they decided to leave out the female cast? that's just wrong. unless they're planning on a second set with just the girls

Based on the time limited nature and various phrasing, my guess is there will be a wave 2 that is also limited with the girls.

Some phrasing also suggests that these specific badges might be aimed at female buyers.

I can see that being possible. I wonder if there'll be more waves with the other two seasons. Since we have up to Frontier.
