It's like everyone but the Digimon are getting makeovers. It's a clash of two art styles.
Digimon always look the same, even in series like Data Squad, which also had a different art style.
because I haven't seen it, they kept the characters from the previous seasons the same. Why did they go with a vastly different character design here? I don't care that they've grown up now, why don't they still look at least identical to how they were in Zero Two? It doesn't make sense to me.

The old Adventure art style isn't even that good. It's way too dated to see it in 2015. The amount of people complaining about this is kind of funny. I think people are just upset that the new Adventure art isn't perfectly fitting their nostalgia of the old show.
It doesn't matter if the art style is different just as long they're the same character we know and love. That's what counts right?
Speaking of Yamato.
I wonder if he and Sora will be in a romantic relationship in Tri? They were married in the epilogue, so I think we will see their relationship start to develop
even though he didn't really look too different in Zero Two. I think what made Digimon stand out from other shounen titles--to me, anyway--was the art style. No matter what the series was, no matter the universe, Digimon still looked like Digimon even if the Digimon themselves weren't in the same picture. I don't know if it was done that way on purpose to look more like your typical shounen title (and thus look more like a children's show), even though that assumption seems a bit out there when Savers was made for a more older demographic.
The character designer for Tri, Atsuya Uki, is talented, Cencoroll was an amazing creation. However, I don't feel his unique style fits with the Digimon universe especially with the drastic makeover; it literally took me a triple-take at the poster before I realized they were the original eight because I didn't recognize any of them from a glance, which to me is poor design (and it's essential when it comes to well-known characters). It doesn't help that he tends to make characters look the same (usually in the faces, but even in the body shape as well), and it shows for Tri. Yes, you can argue that the original Digimon's the exact same way, but it was clear their faces looked slightly different from one-another, particularly with the eyes
even though I always felt the hairstyle made the characters, lol.
So why the Digimon still look the same even though I guess he drew them as well, I guess it's because they're Digimon, their data's not really meant to change their appearance without tampering with it. Or on a meta-level, it's because they know people will complain more about the changes with the Digimon than with the human characters even though the two styles completely bump heads too much, but who really knows at this point. I don't know why they just didn't keep Akihiro Asanuma for this, whether it's because of the reception of Xros Wars or because they typically do change character designers for each season.
given this picture.

I'm not sure why a piece of fanart would mean anything.
I like the new art style i don't see why people don't like it. Also Agumon does look incredibly different, why are people in denial about this?
So will the 02 digidestined appear in tri, or is it just going to focus on the original eight? They have been mentioned or featured in artwork, so I think this might be the case
But that still doesn't take away the fact the two will end up together anyway, right?

It's definitely not as drastic as the Savers redesign, but there are still some differences between the two artstyles.
It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!
are they gonna be in those horrid uniforms the whole time? *eye twitches*
"I'M AND ETERNAL FLAME BABY"
They wore casual clothes in 02 despite being portrayed in their uniforms in stock art and the opening, so probably not.
Now I'm starting to think Gatomon will get a slimmer design, but I keep forgetting she had a belly anyway. Honestly, as long as the Digimon look the same regardless of a slimmer (subtle) redesign, I'm not going to be bothered by it.
Since I'm thinking about it, I'm actually looking forward to see how they handle the Digivolving sequences--fixing the CGI for the Digivolutions will be most welcome.
Agumon received the Skinny! Pikachu treatment which I'm personally not a fan of. The new art design is also not my cup a tea but maybe it will look better in motion than in pictures. I'm here for more character development for Joe & Mimi while Tai gets some amazing love interest.
I'm really excited for this season. I don't mind the art style that much. I wonder if we will see more megas this time around as well as what the digivolution sequence looks or if it changes at all from the original season. I just hope it doesn't end up like the hunters arc.
The spring season is going to be amazing. I'm pretty sure that after watching the new series, I'm going to go back and relive my childhood from the older series. lol

I love these skeleton brothers and their relationship.
I am not sorry.
