“Digimon Data Squad” Boxset May Already Be Out


Retailers said it wouldn’t be available until May 26th, but I bought my copy today. So, Digimon fans, call or visit your neighborhood Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, etc. to see if they already have it in stock. (I paid $30, but Target has it for $20. If you like buying online, Amazon also has it for $20. Comparison shopping works.) As expected, it has three DVDs and a booklet with information about the DATS members and summaries of the thirteen episodes.

I noticed a couple interesting things on the jacket. Fans have been talking about the product description on the publisher’s website (Well Go USA). The last sentence says, “Experience the final Digimon series like never before.” That line, along with the lack of news for a year or two, confirmed for most of us that Digimon is done. However, the boxset itself says, “Experience the newest Digimon series like never before.” (Here’s the proof—sorry about the quality.) Why the change? An error? A cover-up? A glimmer of hope for a season six, perhaps? The show’s still popular. (Why else would they be bringing Digimon RPG to North America and making a sequel?)

The other thing I saw gave me a nice laugh. The image on the back shows Marcus, Agumon, and GeoGreymon, but the picture is…incomplete. I know a Digimon and its partner are joined at the hip, but…

Anyway, I won’t be able to watch the DVDs until Wednesday or Thursday (at the earliest), so that’s when I’ll tell you about the menu, any extras, and things like that. Of course, you may have bought it yourself by then! If so, enjoy!

“Butter-fly” – English Translation

VERSE 1
I’ll become a happy butterfly, ride the sparkling wind
And come to see you soon
Such unnecessary things are better forgotten
This isn’t the time to be joking around

What ~ wow, wow, wow, wow, wow ~ I wonder if we will reach the sky
But ~ wow, wow, wow, wow, wow ~ I don’t even know my plans for tomorrow

*CHORUS 1
Inside the empty world after an infinite dream
Yes, it seems our beloved feelings will become lost, but…
Even with unreliable wings full of images that tend to stay
I’m sure we can fly on my love

VERSE 2
I’ll become a merry butterfly, riding the earnest wind
I’ll go anywhere to see you
Since saying ambiguous words is unexpectedly convenient
I’ll shout them out while listening to a hit song

What ~ wow, wow, wow, wow, wow ~ I wonder if it will echo through this town
But, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow ~ even if I expect it, it can’t be helped

CHORUS 2
Inside the miserable world after an infinite dream
It seems like failing to use common sense isn’t so bad, is it?
Even with awkward wings dyed with images that seem to stay
I’m sure we can fly on my love

CHORUS 3
Inside the empty world after an infinite dream
Yes, it seems our beloved feelings will become lost, but…
Even with unreliable wings full of images that tend to stay
I’m sure we can fly—oh, yeah
