“Digimon” DVD Family Grows to Include Season 02 and “Tamers”

"Digimon: Digital Monsters" Volume 2 in Best Buy...Hey guys, Samurai here! Remember back last year when I found and purchased the first Volume of “Digimon Adventure” [Or “Digimon: Digital Monsters” in the US] from Best Buy? Well, on my lunch break today, I just so happened to stumble across this little gem; Volume 2 of “Digimon Adventure” for only $13-14 after taxes. Quite a fair price for three DVD’s worth of episodes. Granted, for those who were expecting a sub/dub release, you’ll be sorely dissapointed as this only has dub-0nly dialogue with no subtitles, but still…$14 for on-demand nostalgia. Can’t really beat it, can you?

"Digimon Adventure 02" in Best Buy...…well, no, you really can’t. Because right next to “Digimon Adventure 01”, what did I happen to find but “Digimon Adventuure 02” [Or…”Digimon: Digital Monsters” in the US…] COMPLETE collection. Yup. All 50 episdes in a  six DVD collection for…$59. Uh-huh…right…umm…this gave me quite a bit of pause. Why wasn’t “Digimon Adventure 02” given the same individual volume treatment as it’s predessor? Why lump them all together? And who the heck would pay over $60 for Season 2 of Digimon? If you recall our tag-team review from last August, myself and Otaku Andrain took the second season of “Digimon” to task for quite a few things, resulting in the following scores:

Story Breakdown – 10/25
Characters – 17.5/25
Animation – 10/12.5
Music – 10.25/12.5
Performance and Production – 9.5/25

Final Score – 57.25/100 = 57.25% – (F)

At the time, this was the worst scoring series ever reviewed on “The Cajun Samurai”…at least until ANOTHER show came along and blew it out the water. However, I know there are fans out there of Season 2 who would look at this as a small price to pay for a taste of nostalgia, and if you don’t mind a dub-only release, then by all means go forth and purchase with our blessing. Just know that we did, in fact, warn you!

Walmart Pricing and Availability for Digimon Tamers and Vol. 3 of Digimon AdventureOne last bit of Digi-News before I go…I was doing a bit of price comparing on Walmart.com tonight, and I found out that Volume 3 of “Digimon Adventure” will be released on May 14th while “Digimon Tamers” [Or…::sighs:: “Digimon: Digital Monsters” in the US…] will be released on June 11th. While “Adventure” still carries it’s $12-13 price tag, Tamers, which is being released as a Complete Collection like “02” will be a staggering $72. Yeah, you had better save up those Digi-Dollars if you want to take a trip down this avenue on Memory Lane.
