Cool! There's a possibility we might switch back to Disqus comments on the episode pages for Frontier instead of the forum (since most of the discussion happens in the comment threads for an episode anyway and posting on Disqus is easier for new people). Hopefully that just makes it easier for everyone to comment and makes it better for everyone
oooh, getting to experience an entire season of Digimon for the first time is exciting! Out of curiosity, how much do you know about Frontier events/twists? (I'm still trying to figure out how we should handle spoilers for this season)
Ooohhhh, totally missed that.
Oh no! Hope we weren't too negative or piling on hate. I think one problem with how we approached Tamers was that smaller arc chunks and applying a fine-toothed comb to the show made it easier to be negative than positive (like we can end up listing everything we didn't like about the episodes, even if we still really liked the show/season as a whole).
Aside from the TV movie part (I think TV movies aren't really a concept for anime in Japan), I totally agree! If everyone really loved Ryo as much as his defenders claim, this would've been an obvious choice, and could've gone a long way to fix so many details with his execution.
So many ideas that could've used just a bit more exploration
Short answer: yes!
Long answer: Yeah, but Frontier is the last season where our plans are 100% natural and straightforward, because it's the last season that had the combination of factors that always made it obvious that we'd cover the dub:
- all of us hosts saw (mostly) as it came out
- all of us hosts saw originally saw dubbed
- is available for legal streaming in the US
- is only available for legal streaming dubbed
All of that is to say: we're really not sure yet how we're going to do Savers, Xros Wars, and Appmon. For Savers, neither dub nor sub arep legally streaming, and I've only experienced it subbed, so I'll probably be pushing to cover it subbed — but I'm not sure how the other hosts feel or how listeners would feel about it. And there is an official release of the dub (on DVD), so covering that would be the more ethical thing to do… For Xros Wars, the sub is legally streaming (on CR) and the dub didn't cover the last third of the season (so if we did dub, we'd have to switch over to sub at some point anyway), so I'd be pretty inclined for us to do subbed for that season. And Appmon... who knows. Hopefully the sub is legally streaming on CR by the time we get there (like how Xros Wars went up on CR partway through its run), but there's a chance that the sub is never legally streaming and ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
I'm not as sure about X-Evolution, but I think it's likely and we'd probably do it where it fit chronologically release-wise (between Frontier and Savers).
