Thread: Digimon Adventure Try Again Later, or perhaps not

    I had the digimon toys and cards and stuff, and I distinctly remember, after watching the first episode of season 3, trying to see if they worked and would get me a digimon.

    I was already a few years too old to actually believe anything like that, but I sheepishly tried anyway, hoping more than I'd like to admit that they'd work.


    Dropped the franchise when my station started running endless repeats during season 4, not a clue what it's been up to since then. But I'm definitely going to check this thing out.

    I might need to try watching it one more time, but during my Freshmen year of College, I watched the first 4 seasons again, and felt season 3 was the weakest. I felt the character development stuff was rushed, I thought that the thing with Terry could've been done much better (those 2 kids really screwed up not keeping watch on her, and in general just felt really forced), and the one Digimon that was trying to rid of them was suddenly conviced after Takato jumped down and fused for some reason. Also, the whole Blue Card thing was really dumb, and the card use was minimal and could've been done better. I actually really liked 02, despite the flaws, because the first half was really good, and the second half, while a bit crazy, was still interesting.

I just wanted more Digital World, and Frontier gave me that and much more.

    Season 1 and 2 I don't have much memories with. The only thing I can recall is the constant repeating of stock animation for attacks, and something with BlackwarGreymon running around for numerous episodes.
    Frontier was really good, and I feel it did the darker moments much better than Tamers, the only thing I would argue is the stuff near the end was weird. Especially the whole "With all the powers combined it's not strong enough, but if each individual one comes and attacks at once it's effective." I think Tamers starting in the Human world was a good thing to do, but a lot of stuff just didn't work.

    That's when I stopped as well, and it was when it went to a new channel and I was waiting for the school bus during the time. Once I was able to watch the whole thing through, I thought it was quite good. A number of people seemed to have problems with the fact the people turned into Digimon, because some of them were shallow like that (talking about the friends I know), and there were probably other reasons for other people.

    yeah, it's funny the reason you "drop" a show as a kid. I didn't grow out of it, or think it got stupid, it was just that I got frustrated with my TV station. At least three times they'd just suddenly start over from episode 1, and I got really sick of it. That one episode where the main dude gets turned into a digimon and has to watch the events of the first episode really was a trip, because I was about to turn it off thinking they'd restarted again, then saw different things happening and was really confused.

    Haha I remember randomly seeing ABC 13 playing digimon one morning a few years or something after it had been bought by Disney, and turning it on and being like WHOA IT'S SEASON 4 AND IT'S NOT LIKE TAMERS and it was the weirdest thing to watch like an hour before my parents made me go to church

    Never got to see the whole thing till a few years later because they moved it up like 30 minutes and I had to be gone by then

    Is there a good place to watch seasons 4 and up? I don't recall seeing them on crunchy roll.

    Man. That brings me back. Me and my sis followed that show religiously, but... The thing was. They kept going back to episode one when the story was getting good. Like every damned time.

    I might end up rewatching Frontier seeing as the reruns made it hard for us to follow every episode in order.

    If they don't erase the bullshit ending to 02, this sequel is going to be really fucking stupid.

    It's a sequel that takes place 2-3 years after the events of 02, nothing wrong with that.

    The thing is the ending went far past that and it had some pretty stupid things. The question is whether they'll retcon it or whether they'll end up developing the cast to match that of the epilouge. The former would be the better, imo.

    There are no official subs for them, so you'd have to settle for fansubs. Incidentally I'd recommend Positron-LS for Frontier (because 1: I worked on that one and 2: the alternative is WPP. WPP's sub of Digimon Frontier is literally the worst fansub ever) and RyuuRogue for Savers (because it's basically the only option. I mean there's also DATS but they're basically the same thing, except RyuuRogue's version is better edited and uses DVD-rips rather than TV-recordings).

    Digimon 01 is THE BEST DIGIMON EVER!!! 02 was not as good because I REALLY REALLY HATE DAISUKE!!! 1) Being a total rip off of Tai 2) Being a whiny kid 3) Get in the way of Takeru X Hikari

    Digimon Tamers was great as well!!

    I also loved Digimon Xros Wars! Not the sequel!!! In the sequel the same thing happened!! the main dude (forgot his name) is a totally ripped off of Taiki and the fact even his digimon is a total fanboy of Shoutmon also rubbed me in the wrong way too!

    GOD!! I REALLY HOPE THIS DIGIMON SEASON is good!!

    Digimon Adventure is like one of my series I rewatch at least once every 2 years.

    The end of Adventure 02 is actually the movie "Diablomon strikes back!" it takes place after 2 ended and even shows Yamato and Sora dating.

    Anyways, Adventure is definitely the best (and the first two movies are amazing) but I like Frontier a lot and it has the best songs in the series (I LOVE Wada Kouji)

    I absolutely loved Digimon as a kid and I happen to think a rewamp with the technological improvements of recent years and the power of hindsight could have me thoroughly enjoy it. I haven't watched any season after the second and from what I understand, they didn't really stay commited to the concept afterwards. Needless to say, the ending of the second season was not nearly as climactic as the first season and I hated that stupid ''this is what happened afterwards'' at the end. I just pretended that shit never happened. Also, am I the only one who noticed the crazy similarity between the ending of that season and where we are standing currently in Naruto? You know, with all the ''people entering their dreamworld but living in a delusional bliss is bad because of reasons''? I totally think Kishimoto jacked that from Digimon.

    Tamers has a...mostly depressing ending while Frontier has an almost depressing ending. You should watch them.

    In english I guess that's Davis? He was fucking awesome. Definetly one of the best characterized kid's show characters I've ever seen.

    I'm kind of surprised by all the Tamers dislike and the love for Frontier going around.

    I started watching Digimon around the tail end of Adventure, then caught up and eventually started religiously following around the middle of Season 2. I think I watched one episode of Tamers, then didn't watch again till I saw Frontier on Disney one day a few years later, then finished that series before catching Tamers right at the end of the Beelzemon fight.

    Having seen Tamers last of the first four seasons, and rewatching it very recently, it really comes together for me as the strongest season overall. My biggest compliment for Tamers is how it actually incorporates the Digimon into the main cast as well. Especially back in Adventure, the show was about seven kids and their pet Digimon. Sure, the Digimon had personality, but they never really interacted with the rest of the cast like Guilmon and Renamon do. In Tamers, it starts with three kids and five Digimon, and the Digimon are just as much characters as the kids.

    Admittedly, some of the storytelling aspects don't come together very well (Rika and Renamon are suddenly fighting! Henry doesn't want Terriermon to digivolve!) but ultimately, I feel it succeeds by making the Digimon really feel like characters as well.

    Frontier on the other hand, I really WANT to like. It definitely has one of the best, if not THE best Digital Worlds, I'm a sucker for Elemental stuff, and I thought the concept itself was cool. My biggest gripe with Frontier is how DULL everyone is. I think Zoe, Tommy, and JP were basically all the same character in the end, and Takuya and Koji weren't even close to strong enough leads to maintain their status. Plus I think it's episode 19 where the show gives out the last evolution to the less important kids and then Takuya and Koji do everything forever, further pushing Zoe, Tommy, and JP into the background.

    I think Tamers are two diametric takes on Digimon that kind of end up doing totally diametric things. Tamers emphasizes the characters and plot, though doesn't really do much with its setting or concepts (though Card Slash is cool). Frontier sets up a really strong setting and concept, but drops the ball character and plot wise.

    If I had to rank the seasons I'd say: Tamers > Adventure > Savers > Frontier > 02. I've never seen Xros Wars, and don't really want to, and my opinion on Savers changes daily, but even 02 has a lot to love about it (ARMOR DIGIVOLUTION), so I'm not saying "Ugh, Frontier and 02 are bad."

    You are probably going to have to watch Frontier in Japanese to appreciate it. I watched (I believe) most of Frontier before a single episode was in English and it just grated on me. The interesting thing to me about Frontier is that nobody really liked each other in the begging and that they all had their own problems going on in their lives (more reminiscent of Adventure but mor prominent). The whole beginning them asking them if they wanted to play a game that will change their lives....chilling. I really liked the focus on the humans as opposed to random Digimon that the previous series had been doing (and the celestials....I like them a lot). The whole argument about Human Digimon vs Beast Digimon is very intriguing and the ending....pretty powerful stuff.
    Kouji's character became very intriguing halfway through the series which allowed him the most character development out of the whole cast.
