So I’m reading a WtW translated interview with Kenji Watanabe, and I think it says something when even he was against making another Omnimon via Merciful Mode. He turned down making it on the grounds they always resort to using Omnimon and from what I gathered just seem tired of all the variants. Such a Digimon wasn’t even planned to be incorporated originally, but they ultimately wrote themselves into that corner. A golden Omnimon was considered, ala stuff like Galaxy Convoy, but was rejected as it wasn’t impactful enough. Interestingly Merciful Mode has a ritual suicide theme, though Watanabe wasn’t sure if that was the right way to go despite tri’s context. The mode change also has visual ties to Ishinomori characters like Kikader (the “tears”) and 009 (the wings). The wings were meant to be scarfs, but this wasn’t translated into the film itself. Overall it’s interesting to read about behind the scenes stuff like this, and I’m slightly amused Kenji did NOT want another Omnimon.
Huh Trigger must REALLY wanna do a Transformers series, as SSSS Gridman is apparently chock full of deliberate nods to the franchise. In particular it seems to be referencing Shattered Glass, as the bulk of the characters patterned after them. Apparently one of the Trigger staff is a fan of Shattered Glass and participated in Transformers fan zines with SG themed artwork.
Ooof, that new Ducktales episode. I don’t normally get emotional, but wow, that got me right in the feels.
Well by now I’m sure fans have heard that the next Digimon animated project is another Adventure movie. Featuring 22 year old Tai and Matt. Hooray I guess? Like with tri., I’m not sure about all this nostalgia pandering, but hindsight tells me tri. came out at the right time to tickle that itch. The new movie however seems to be getting a resounding “meh” from fans. Adventure burn out is starting to affect Japanese fans as well it seems after eyeballing Twitter. Some, like many westerners, wanting a Tamers sequel over more Adventure. That all said, the details of the new movie are still unclear, some say it’s a retelling of Adventure with adult versions of the gang, some think it’s a sequel to tri, some think it’s a single film... Lots of uncertainty. All we know is we have some returning staff from the original anime, notably the original character designer. And to a degree I think the movie, visually is better for it. Usually I like Uki, but his designs didn’t click and were too samey for Digimon. As for a plot, my own speculation is a Tai and Matt nostalgiac palooza, loosely following up on the sequel hook planted in tri. with mention of Daemon and Diaboromon. Maybe X-Antibody and/or Omnimon Alter-S are involved due to recent news. The only solice I have is the possibility of a separate anime series ala Appmon being produced alongside 20th Adventure like before. Because Adventure burnt out is starting to sink in, and Toei might want to rethink its strategy soon.
I’m scanning in a lot of sketches atm. Beware of a backlog of E3 reaction comics lol.
So a friend of mine, Jose_Juanstar, is going through some financial problems and wants to help his family, so he’s opening up commissions!

He’s quite good, having some wonderful Fire Emblem inspired stuff in particular:……

If anyone’s interested in some quality work, you can drop him a line at

In order to raise money to help with his family’s financial and physical wellbeing, he’s open to draw anything. Give ‘em a try!

Hello! You must be BlueIke! I really liked your cartoon style! But why did you block your bestest best friend HewyToonmore ?? Why did you ditch him? What did he do to you?
