April marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters saga. And with a new chapter comes a new Appli Driver… though you know the character already!
Yuujin Oozora (voiced by Makoto Furukawa) will be receiving an Appli Drive of his own in the coming storyline. Furukawa says he’s looking forward to battling with the rest of the main cast now that he’s become the show’s fifth Appli Driver, as well as introducing fans to a new Appmon!
As for the new Appmon… technically they’re not completely new. Fans of the tie-in 3DS game may recognize the new character:
Offmon, who appeared alongside Naoto in the 3DS Appli Monsters game, will be Yuujin’s Buddy Appmon. As in the game, Offmon will be voiced by Yu Shimamura.
Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters is currently airing on TV TOKYO.
