I honestly don’t get the hate Frontier gets, it was a strong season with
a dramatic story, likable characters, and the most unique form of
digivolution. I mean, who didn’t want to become a digimon when they were
I ship Mimi and Koushiro since the episode in 01 where the kids are separated and those two end up together and meet Centarumon. Glad to see it has some canon evidence now, even if it’s (for now) one sided.
Although the anime has made me cry many times, For the the most heartbreaking moment will always be the ending of episode 21 from Digimon Adventure when Taichi has to leave Hikari behind, No matter what that scene always brings a lump to my throat.
It seems like a lot of folks are convinced Ophanimon Fall Down Mode means Hikari is going to turn evil. Like, do they not remember Skullgreymon? That didn’t exactly involve an evil Taichi. Even if her Light corrupts, we still know how things turn out because the epilogue never stopped being a thing or anything.
Digimon Frontier was my favorite season. I found everything about it great. Especially the fact that the villains truly terrified me. I was always worried for our digidestined. Each episode I was sure that they were going to be murdered.
I’ve only been a fan of Digimon for about eight years, so I didn’t grow up with Adventure. I tried watching Adventure and Adventure 02, but their pacing and overall corniness makes it hard for me to enjoy. I sometimes wonder if it’s rose-tinted glasses that make people see these two as some of the best seasons?
I sometimes wonder what Adventure would have been like if Wizardmon had been Hikari’s partner instead of Gatomon. Then I realize that Gatomon would have probably performed the heroic sacrifice in that case, and I get really sad.
I would just love a virtual reality Digimon game to work with the oculus rift or Playstation VR, Seems like it would be a great announcement for the upcoming 20th anniversary of the franchise.
