The Tri Chapter 1 English dub premiers in US theaters later this week! To get everyone back in the “Reunion” mood, we thought it was a good time to release an episode we’ve had in the queue for a while.

Back when Tri Chapter 1 “Reunion” came out, lots of critics were talking about how the film was exclusively for fans, but no one seemed to actually ask how people who saw the movie without Digimon experience reacted. So we wanted to test that theory! Last December, Jeff and Ashley sat down with two of their friends and recorded their thoughts before and after watching the film. And they had a lot of thoughts.

Our Digi-Noobs are @cthellis and @gabeglick. You can find CT’s full reaction notes here.

We hope you enjoy the episode and the fresh perspective! And stay tuned later this week for our thoughts on the Tri dub!
