    Digimon Adventure 1 and 02

    Post by Jordan, Lich Lord on Fri Jul 27, 2012 7:39 pm





    "In the summer of that year, strange things happened all over Earth."

    Taichi, Yamato, Sora, Koushiro, Mimi, Jou, and Takeru (nicknamed Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi, Joe, and T.K.) are caught in a mysterious snowfall in the middle of their summer camp. When strange devices fall from the sky, they are sent to another world and meet up with Mons that somehow know their names and are devoted to protecting them. Fighting stronger and stronger enemies to Save Both Worlds, the seven children learn why they are the "Digidestined" and how to become stronger with the power of their own hearts. Later they get a new addition to their team, Taichi's sister, Hikari (nicknamed Kari).

    And giant monsters. Can't forget that.

    The first anime series in the Digimon franchise, adapted from the virtual pets. What the series lacked in production values, it more than made up for with incredible writing, being one of the first 'kids' shows to have great characterization that continually developed. We came for the monsters and we stayed for the children. It was followed up by Digimon Adventure 02, and was accompanied by a pair of Short Anime Movies.


    See also: the character sheet. All tropes related to a single character should be added there instead of here






    Stand up! A hero is within me.


    Three years have passed since the summer we could never forget...


    The second Digimon anime series, and the only direct sequel to another series, Digimon Adventure 02 is set three years*

    the dub increased the Time Skip to four years
    after Digimon Adventure. As a point of clarification, the "02" in the title refers to the series being set in 2002, not to its status as a sequel (though yeah, it's obviously that).



    The original Digidestined have moved on and grown up after saving the Digital World, and T.K. Takaishi (Takeru), the former cute helpless kid of the group turned confident Lancer, has transferred to a new school which fellow former Chosen Kari Kamiya (Hikari Yagami) attends. They meet brash goggle boy Davis Motomiya (Daisuke), girly tech geek Yolei Inoue (Miyako), and stoic Cody Hida (Iori). A distress call from Agumon draws Tai, T.K. and Kari back into the Digital World, taking Davis with them; there, they find that the Digital World is under siege from the Digimon Emperor (Digimon Kaiser), a human child who controls Digimon, blocks evolution, and aspires to conquer the Digital World. With new, stronger Mons, a few new tweaks to the evolution system, and an enemy their own age from their own world, these five have to work on their own few experiences with Digimon and work through having been sheltered at that time as children.



    Its Distant Finale epilogue is infamous as the subject of much fandom ire, partially for much of what became of the Chosen not particularly fitting their in-series characterization, and partly because Sora married Matt and not Tai. Even so, it was still fairly popular, continuing the phenomenon set by Digimon Adventure. It was succeeded by Digimon Tamers.



    It was accompanied by a pair of Short Anime Movies, neither of which are canon. Hurricane Touchdown, also known as Transcendent Evolution! The Golden Digimentals, is set before Ken joins the Chosen, and details their adventures in America and dealings with Wallace, a Chosen with twin Digimon; it was dubbed as the third part of Digimon: The Movie, and suffered for it. The second film, Diablomon Strikes Back, is set within a year of the finale and is about the Chosen's response to the resurrection of Diablomon, the antagonist of Our War Game who came dangerously close to defeating them last time; it aired in the US as a television special in the lead-up to the start of Digimon Savers.



    Official releases of the Japanese version with English subs (of questionable quality) of Digimon Adventure 02 are available from Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Animax, but only to residents of the United States.



    Digimon was my first experience into anime. Actually I had never watched the series until a few years ago but the Movie is what I grew up with. I must have watched it 100 times in my childhood.

    Ah, Machinedramon.

    Seriously, what's not to love about that giant, badass robot dinosaur?

    He has the best theme. He has the awesome weapons.

    ...But he just had to hit Kari. Out of ALL OF THEM, KARI. Yeah, you go and hit the main character's sister, what's the worst thing that could happen?


    It really was a shame that 02 didn't go very far, since, did you know, they actually had to cancel it because something else wanted their spot on TV.

    And Blackwargreymon was so awesome.

    So many good memories. I'm not an anime person by any stretch of the imagination, but Digimon Adventure will always be one of the most awesome kids shows I've ever watched and will still watch.
