It does count as evolution/digivolution, whereas "gattai" doesn't.

Yeah, so, what we got are the following processes a digimon can undergo to change from one digimon to another:

1. Evolution/Digivolution (and all variations thereof)
2. Gattai ("fusion")
3. Mode Change
4. DigiXros (and all variations thereof)
5. Kyūshū ("absorption")
6. Tensei ("reincarnation")
7. No name (a simple "change" from a disguise to a true form, like shapeshifting)
8. Henka ("transformation")
9. No name (the process in which Arresterdramon uses the Kinkoji to become Arresterdramon Superior Mode)

Eat your heart out, Pokémon. :P

Saban Brands Acquires Digimon Brand

MarVista Entertainment to Manage International Distribution Beyond Asia

LOS ANGELES, CA (Sept. 25, 2012) - Saban Brands has acquired the Digimon franchise, adding the long-running Japanese anime property to its growing portfolio of entertainment assets. The acquisition, which encompasses rights to the property outside of Asia, continues Saban Brands' dramatic growth since reacquiring the Power Rangers property and purchasing lifestyle brand Paul Frank in 2010, amongst others. Saban Brands will work with MarVista Entertainment for distribution of the series outside of Asia. Japanese animation studio, Toei Animation Co., Ltd. will handle licensing and distribution of the property in Asia.

The Digimon franchise, which was first brought to the U.S. in 1999 by Saban's Fox Family Worldwide, explores a digital world where powerful creatures known as Digimon, or digital monsters, battle for supremacy. With the help of their young human partners, the Digimon defend their world and ours from various evil forces.

"We're thrilled to reconnect Saban Brands with Digimon, an entertainment franchise that embodies the strong fan base and growth potential we look for in new additions to our portfolio," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. "We look forward to reintroducing the brand in new and exciting ways that will allow more fans to engage with Digimon."

Saban Brands will debut the newest season, Digimon Fusion, at MIPCOM, which will be held Oct. 8-11 in Cannes, France. MarVista Entertainment has been appointed to handle international distribution (outside of Asia) of the new season, as well as distribution for more than 250 half-hours episodes of Digimon content from the library.

"We are naturally excited to further extend our relationship with Saban Brands to represent the Digimon franchise and to present the latest iteration, Digimon Fusion, to international buyers at MIPCOM," commented Fernando Szew, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of MarVista Entertainment. "Children worldwide have embraced the Digimon television series since its launch, providing strong ratings success for broadcasters around the globe, and we anticipate a lot of enthusiasm from current and new partners who will undoubtedly want to play a key role in the continued growth of the Digimon franchise."

It is done. As of today, fansubber PositronCannon has completed his fansub of the seventh Digimon movie--the only Frontier movie--Revival of the Ancient Digimon. And with that, it has finally come to pass that every single piece of Digimon animation (anime series, movies, OVAs, etc.) has been given and complete and (near-)proper subtitled form.

Movie 1 -- PositronCannon
Adventure 1-54 -- RyuuRogue
Movie 2 -- PositronCannon
Adventure 02 1-50 -- PositronCannon
Movie 3 Part 1 -- DmonHiro
Movie 3 Part 2 -- DmonHiro
Movie 4 -- PositronCannon
Tamers 1-15 -- The Wild Bunch
Tamers 16-51 -- PositronCannon
Movie 5 -- The Wild Bunch
Movie 6 -- DmonHiro
Frontier 1-50 -- PositronCannon
Movie 7 -- PositronCannon
Movie 8 X-Evolution -- RyuuRogue
Savers 1-48 -- RyuuRogue
Movie 9 -- RyuuRogue
Savers Tokuten Eizou -- RyuuRogue
Savers 3D: Digital World Kiki Ippatsu! -- RyuuRogue
Adventure 3D: Digimon Grandprix! -- RyuuRogue
Xros Wars 1-30 -- RyuuRogue
Xros Wars 31-54 -- RyuuRogue
Xros Wars 55-79 -- The Wild Bunch

This has been a great 15th anniversary! 8-)


Also, some BIG news. :shock:
Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time has been nominated for an International Emmy for best Animated Kids show.
So we can officially refer to Digimon as 'Emmy Nominated'
For people who want an official link to look at- (This informs the prior two tweets... so show all three if you can.)

Lucky Japan. :grin: :grin: :grin:

The game comes out in January in Japan. No release outside of Japan has been mentioned yet.

The entire anime cast is on board, including the series director. The voice recordings for the game are over 70 hours long.

The game will cover the entire series, including the post series movie "Our War Game." There will also be new material, including a crossover with the main 'hero character' and Digimon from the other seasons of Digimon.

A first press bonus will be made available- A PSP based recreation of the Digimon Adventure Digivice V-Pet.
