New Data Squad Press Release

New press release for Data Squad, looked around and confirmed it as real via Kyl and here it is...

LOS ANGELES, August 3, 2007 - Toei Animation's mega-hit animated series Digimon makes its 5th season debut this fall on Toon Disney's Jetix block with Digimon: Data Squad, which adds a new cast of characters and bold storylines to the globally-renowned action-adventure franchise.

Digimon: Data Squad continues the adventures of 14-year-old Marcus and dinosaur-type partner Agumon as they challenge the menacing Digimon from the Digital World who intrudes into the Human World to cause nothing but trouble. For their efforts, the pair is inducted into DATS (Data Squad) a special investigation unit called in to ensure planetary safety. Being a reformed schoolyard punk, Marcus learns to channel his belligerence toward the evil Digimon, and to work as a team to help protect the human world from ruin.

The Digimon: Data Squad cast also includes Marcus' rival, teen prodigy Thomas H. Norstein and his beast-type Digimon partner Gaoman and Yoshino Fujieda, the only girl in the DATS and her plant-type Digimon partner Lalamon.

Legendary Japanese animation studio Toei Animation is the creator of Digimon, which ranks among the most popular and longest-running action series in the world. In addition to the launch of the animated television series on Jetix, Bandai America will be releasing an expansive line of Digimon: Data Squad toys in early 2008 while Namco Bandai Games America has set video games based on the newest Digimon series for the fall.

Outside of the U.S., the renowned Digimon franchise has achieved major global success, with the acclaimed animated series airing in over 40 countries worldwide.

Said Mr. Yosuke Kobayashi, President and COO of Toei Animation: "We are delighted to continue our association with ABC Cable Networks Group in bringing the newest season of the perennially popular Digimon to the Toon Disney Jetix block. The popularity of Digimon continues to build, attracting new generations of fans which is the hallmark of a successful evergreen property."

Largely seems like a bit of a downer, we know most of the stuff already....not downer, more like a windbag. Not much content

Only things to note

They call her Yoshino instead of Yoshi
Toys will be from Bandai in 2008

They once again say FALL but give no goddamn date.
