AkibaFest in Little Tokyo and Digimon Adventure tri. – Chapter 1: Reunion

We're surprised to announce the arrival of AkibaFest in Little Tokyo this coming October. From Aniplex comes a two day anime convention in October, the 15th and 16th in the heart of LA's Japanese culture. Though no venues have been mentioned yet the press release has stated that, "We’re going to transform Little Tokyo into the closest thing to ‘Akiba’ as possible. If we can’t bring you to Akihabara, we’re going to bring Akihabara to you,” said John Inada, from Aniplex of America.

More details are going to go up on the AkibaFest website later this July. We'll keep you updated too.

Digimon Adventure tri. – Chapter 1: Reunion, an anime film based on the first series in the US will be coming to theaters as a two-day Fathom Events series screening in 300+ US cities in September, followed by a traditional multi-city national theatrical release in major cities in October, 2016. It will be in English.

So if you grew up with the series you can now take your kids to go see it or just see what the DigiDestened have been up to.

It's been six years since the summer adventure when Tai (now in high school) and the rest of the DigiDestined crossed over to the Digital World and nearly three years since frenzied final battles between warring factions. With the gate to the Digital World closed, time continues to pass, until the adventure Digivolves once again.
