>consistently won awards every year (at least in Japan, idk about elsewhere)

And yet, this series is largely forgotten. I'm excited for the upcoming collection, I hope this games get more love.

    do we ever ask ourselves why we want more? we know what it's going to lead to. remasters that are created to capitalize on the past that come with changes which are generally disliked. i feel like this shit ends up dividing us further. so much of these games are a "you had to be there" experience. i don't know why you want them to revisit the past again. we have what we have and obviously capcom is over it. hate to play devils advocate but i swear everytime something is dug from the grave and put back on display it feels like a cheap imitation that mocks the original intentions then the existing fanbase coagulates in all these fucked up ways.

        I don't think this applies to every series. Mega Man, for example. I wanted a new game for years and years and then Capcom gave us Mega Man 11 and it was one of the best games in the entire franchise.

      I really liked it at first, it was incredibly faithful to the games and its mechanics, too.
      Then at some point with a new season they dropped everything and went full sentai, with Lan transforming into Mega Man sentai style. I couldn't believe my eyes and dropped the series there.

      They had their concept, it was working, but they trashed all that to go full sentai mode.
      I guess there just isn't never enough sentai in Japan.

            But Tamers was the best series. It's why everyone wanted Konaka to come back for more. Either way Biomerge was an interesting concept in Tamers considering the premise of the series, and jesus fuck was the concept handled a hell of a lot better than Frontier did.
            Either way, my point was that Lann and Mega Man merging can work, it just has to be done well.

              Adventure has more charm, gestalt and character depth (being edgy or whining for 30 episodes with almost no devolopment till final minute isn't depth) in its pinky despite not even trying to be some epic drama. More importantly it really is an adventure in the digi world, something all other seasons somehow forgot about except Frontier which instead thought it was a good idea to remove the digimons lol
              There is a reason 1 gets eviscerated to this day, even if never doing justice to it and fucking up the ADVENTURE part somehow

                Well that I completely disagree with, even if I really like Adventure. I think Tamers overall had the best writing and character development of its main trio. And everyone loves Nozawa's Guilmon.
                >being edgy or whining for 30 episodes with almost no devolopment till final minute isn't depth
                I don't know what show you're thinking about there but it wasn't Tamers, have you watched the japanese version recently?
                >There is a reason 1 gets eviscerated to this day, even if never doing justice to it
                Because it's the most popular and sold the best (or rather, it was the only one that sold well), that's really the only reason. Especially after the studio finally realized that unlike Pokemon, they're never going to capture the next generation of kids so they might as well go all-in on pandering to the now adults who grew up on the first few works. It's the whole reason CS/HM was a success even if they aren't particularly great games.

                Nta but that's the least of Frontier's problems. Giving the team digimon partners wouldn't change that a third of the show is the team just jobbing to the KR, and even before that point we had like 8 episodes in a row of jobbing to Grumblemon. And everyone not named Takuya and Koji became cheerleaders for them

        I liked the anime, too. But I will NEVER understand fully why some episodes were never given the chance to air on US Airwaves. Also, why in the ever-loving fuck haven't any fan groups even tried to make an effort at a more accurate and uncensored dub of NT Warrior/EXE. Also still waiting for at least a full dub, fanmade or not, of every SF1 anime episode! I'd download that and buy that on DVD or Blu-ray for sure!

                I hate how with dubs now you can tell the actors casts are starting to consist of people who grew up with cartoons in the 90's, and are doing an impersonation of that. It's all too incestuous somehow. I'd rather go back to the era of just calling in any old actor off the street, and basically winging it. That's more appealing to me.

                In a modern context From Software's games are a good example of a Japanese product with good English voice acting, and it's specifically because they approach actors, rather than approaching this clique of "anime voice actors" who make a living doing "anime voices", if you see what I mean.

                Video games are actually currently in a whole other tier. Even Japanese video games. Other than some rare anime tier dubs like Xenoblade 2, or how they were during the PS1/PS2 gen and lower, they're actually generally pretty golden now
                It's pretty much the US anime dub industry that has a massive problem, there's something wrong going on in the production and it's not getting fixed anytime soon as they're now shitting simuldubs

                Enough for them to actually get noticed, meaning they'll have to be good enough too
                Consider that even seemingly impossible tasks like JRPG and Visual Novel games translation, games that requires a certain level of hacking prowess to make it work and probably has several books of dialogue to translate carefully, all of this for about a few hundreds autists. Consider that there's entire books (light novels), several of them fan translated per year.
                All of this is incredibly niche, yet it somehow less demanding and manages to release more than several of these a year by fans
                Now consider that the demand for Fandubs is nonexistent , anime fans already hates dubs as it is, and would require a pretty crazy amount of people working for free to make it work, extremely talented people at that
                Meanwhile I have searched and I cannot one a single straight answer and a single completed work somehow. I have searched the cat site and since its new iteration there has been only a single page of fandubs, most being only single episodes releases with a small handful of movies at best, and a bunch of these are in French
                Basically, planets would have to align under a lucky star for people to even begin fandubbing about 200 episodes of this forgotten series
                tl;dr: It's really not happening dude
