I love Digimon.


It's funny back when it was still on I HATED Tamers more than anything but LOOOOVED Adventure 02, Frontier still wasn't on though.


Now it's the complete opposite, Tamers is my favorite and 02 (the dub) is my least favorite. I just sat down and watched Tamers when it was showing on Toon Disney every night and...I just found myself getting really into it, the dub was lightyears ahead of the shitty Nimoy 02 dub and it was just a lot of fun. The climax of the show at the end was actually the best of any digimon series (most of the finales are very disappointing).

At that same time (more or less) I had actually flipped to the channel (UPN) I think that was showing Frontier. Complete fluke, but I saw it, saw it was new, watched it, enjoyed it, still enjoy it.

All in all out of all the digimon series I've watched my favorite Digimon are:

1. Beelzemon
2. MetalEtemon

Yep, that's it.

And in order now my list would go

1. Tamers
2. Frontier
3. Adventure
4. Adventure 02

I haven't seen Savers yet.

so far, Savers seems pretty meh..

it goes back to the whole.. human + digimon combination again rather than whatever they did in digimon frontier

the animation seems to have gone down, I don't like how it looks..


The Dats organization reminds me of the futuristic power ranger series

eh, that's all I can say for now, I guess

I loved digimon right up to Frontier, then I kinda gave up on the whole series. but still, there was a part of me dep down that still loved the show. Then I met Pinky75910, and Frontier is one of my favorite seasons now, and did I mention I love the whole series again? That's why if you check out my recent music videos, they are practicly all digimon.

My favorite? it's hard to say. I love Tamers, since it had a more realistic feel to it (and back when it first came on I wanted notheing more than for Digimon to be real, lucky Takato!), I loved the whole Card Slash thing (And I REALLY like the dub's Digi-Modify music for some reason), and my favorite digimon Leomon came back! Then he died. And I got mad. -_- But I still loved that show. I also have to say that Bio-Merging was awsome. Too bad only the main three and Ryo got to do that though.

Frontier is also an apparent favorite now. At first, like I said, I hated it. The character designs were weird (Look at that clothing!), there are no digimon partners, the kids BECOME the didimon? By themselves? It's acceptable via BioMerging, but not like THAT. Not to mention it was on Sundays here, right about ehen I left for church.

A few years later, I actually sat down at watched the first epidoe again. And then the next. And the next. And the next. And now I'm up to episode 40. What was I thinking! This is a cool series! The spirit evolution is actually very cool, and working it's way into a fancomic of mine. Great plot (or sub plot?) Involving the mid-season character too. There were a few missed oppertunities in this season though, it could have been so much better.

Well, that's all from me right now. Even though no one cares, i'll put my other little reviews up later :)

I know, It's so annoying (for me at least), he died in 01, Tamers, X Evolution movie, and IceLeomon died in Frontier (At least iceLeomon was evil).

Grr! Well, at the least he'll live on in my fancomics and such. I'll make sure of it!

One of my friends loved Leomon and was so pissed watching him die over and over again.

It's funny, Leomon's dub VA was also Leutinent Burning in Gundam 0083, ANOTHER favorite character.

And then Burning DIED stupidly again. He was about to tell something then "BOOM" explode. Bad luck.

Yes, Irony in something else, Younger Toguro went out not being so bad as you once thought while his VA does the voice of someone who gives up all his hard work(and arm) to save another.....while killing 7,000 people who probably didn't even want to show up for work today.

.......Call be ignorant, I have no idea what that had to do with anything ^^;

Anywho, getting away to the ftopic-that-frustrates mehas anyone seen the Diaboromon Strikes Back movie? It's the only one I haven't seen, and the one I wanted I wanted to see most out of all the non-translated movies. (well, they were not translated at the time) Is it any good?

And since Cornwiggle said his list of favorites ear;lier:

1. Tamers
2. Frontier
3. Adventures (Season 1)
4. 02
5. Savers

And Leomon, Renamon n' Armadillomon are my favs :3

Likes the first two seasons and.. The first movie lives on in my heart forever! After the first two, Ya lost me. 'Corse I was 7 and geting up at 6:00 was a huge comitment. I found that if you missed ONE episode of half of the second and beyond serieses, I was lost.. But dam, I saw the Digimon Movie 20 times in the theater and had those promos comin out of my ears! :P I made sure each of my friends had seen it at least once! And it still makes me laugh!!!
