Digimon Fans Combine The Art Of Digimon Tri With The Series Originals | Digimon

Fans of Digimon have plenty to be excited for, but as of late fans have become more apprehensive and critical. The first thing a majority of fans are not too pleased with is Digimon Adventure tri being revealed to be a 6 part film series and the second being tri’s character designs. Reactions have been mixed to negative in regards to Atsuya Uki’s tri designs which adopt the look of Uki’s work in Tsuritama. Displeased fans altered screenshots from tri’s latest promotional video and paid homage to Digimon’s veteran character designer Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru by meshing his designs with Uki’s.

Is there really much of a difference between both designs? The only two differences I can spot are the eyes and the mouth. The fan-altered images have a shounen feel to them whereas Uki’s designs have a certain maturity about them. Both look great, but I actually prefer the newer designs. Am I the only one that loves Atsuya Uki’s tri character designs? I absolutely love the Tsuritama feel to the characters as it adds a different dimension to the original designs. The point of tri is to usher in a new storyline about our favorite Digi-Destined characters who are supposed to look more mature because they’ve grown up. I get the nostalgia factor and wanting the original designer, but other than those two points, what’s really the compliant about Uki’s designs? Is it the eyes, the hair or the body structure? Fans have commented that tri’s designs don’t feel like the original series. Well, that’s because it’s


supposed to feel like it. This is a brand new story that shows Tai, Matt, TK, Kari and the others as growing teens. They’re older now and the new art is reflecting that. Also, anime character designs have changed over the years and tri is reflecting that point perfectly as well. Besides, why criticize something you haven’t seen in full yet? We’ve seen a trailer and that’s about it. That’s not much to go off of. For all I know, I could end up hating the designs by the films end! But for now I’m content with what I’ve seen so far. My only problem with tri is that it’s a series of films instead of an episodic journey. For more news on Digimon Adventure tri’s planned film series, click here. Okay Digimon fans, it’s debating time! Do you guys like the new character designs? If not, let us know in the comments below why that is!
