The order I recommend is : The movie with Parrotmon Adventure Children's War Game (the Diaboromon movie) 02 should only be watched for bantz Tamers Frontier, Savers and Xros Wars are all decent but not as good as Tamers or Adventure
>>137742291 Seasons 1 and 3 are good, 2 and 4 are bad, 5 and 6 are okay, 6.5 is total shit, 7 isn't done yet, and almost none of the movies matter, with OWG being the only essential one. Avoid all English dubs, but German and Spanish dubs are fine.
>>137747195 It used to be like Yugioh, but the only direct sequels are the first 2. In Season 3 season 1 and 2 are tv shows for example so it is happening in a completely different universe. There is no season ongoing right now, but there is a movie series that are sequels to the original shows ongoing.
>>137748333 So should I watch season 1 and 2, then the movies, then 3 and I guess the others? Really, what order should I watch what in? Should I watch them in English or Japanese with subtitles? What did they change in the localization?
>>137748840 Jap definitely. To be completely honest I liked every season, but if you want to skip seasons skip 2, 4 and 6.5, because they are considered to be the worst in the series, the best are if you are curious 1 and 3. The movies you should watch are the original digimon movie before you start with season 1 and Our war game after you are done with season 1, because they are canon to season 1 and 2. If you are going to watch season 2 and you liked it like me, watch the movie diablomon strikes. Also the finale of season 6.5 is a massive crossover episode so you can watch that if you are interested.
>>137742291 >1 is gud >/a/ says 2 is shit, so it's shit >3 is gud >4 is bearable >5 is digimon with sentai, gotta be gud >6 is debatable >the tri movies are their own plot with formor characters back, but they're not all out yet Watch 1 and Tamers. Then the first Tri movie and wait for the rest. U less you start thinking Digimon is shit.
>>137749958 The English version is a combination of 3 movies. The first one Digimon Adventure Movie is a 20 minute prequel to Adventure 01 which came out just before 01 aired, the second is Bokura no War Game which is the Diablomon movie and a sequel to 01. The third is Digimon Adventure 02 Movie which might be in two parts depending on the release, it's no where near as good as the first two it's not directed by Hosoda.
>>137748840 Stay away of the dub Stay FAR FAR away from the "Digimon Movie" Fox made, its 3 unrelated Digimon films that have nothing to do with each other fused together with loads of exposition dialog from one of the characters acting as narrator, also Angelamon and shitty muriccan licensed music, because kids back than just loved Smashing Pumpkins right?
>>137750252 Its the original Digimon Movie plus Our War Game and one of the movies from the second season, Hurricane Touchdown IIRC The original Digimon movie was just Toei playing with the idea of digimon, it was also the only digimon Media done in traditional animation, the first season was Toei's first digitally animated production Our War Game takes place after the first season ends and its a pretty good movie on its on, so good the director remade it without the Digimon License when he did Summer Wars Hurricane Touchdown is... ok I guess The problem with the Digimon The Movie, the American version, is that they try to make the plot of Hurricane Touchdown fit on the other two films and it really doesn't work They also try to plug in Angela Anaconda, some Canadian kids show Fox owned when they still had the rights to the American distribution of digimon, so every time you start the "movie" you get 15min of angela anaconda and her awful humor and animation at the start Also, shitty soundtrack, all the original japanese score is replaced with licensed music that just does not fit with the movie and the final nail in the coffin, all the 3 movies had a run time of 40min to 1 hour and 30min, the Digimon The Movie is around one 1 hour and 45min long, meaning a lot of the 3 movies got chopped and edited out to fit the American movie
>>137750604 >>137750604 Tamers was the last I completed watching and, while I know it is just a cartoon for children, It had things that made my autism juices boil: >If they made digimon a card game, why not expand more on the game and the battle rules? The lack of explanation of the game makes it pointless imo. >Why make the other 2 kids and Henry's sister tamers if they aren't going to have any development? Also, Juri becoming a tamer was just to make Leomon's death more meaningful? She barelly made anything usefull in any fight. >Among the main 3 only Rika had a noticeable development as a character. Takato slightly less, and Henry almost none. >Terriermon striked me as a kinda useless fella all the show. >The evolutions of the main cast where kinda meh compared to adventure. >The misterious girl that apeared with dobermon? For what reason was she introduced? Those are the some of the reasons I remember of the top of my head. Frontier on the other hand I liked the cast a lot more. As the show advanced you could notice how they developed. The only thing frontier lacked (and I guess the main reason it is seen as the worst season) was digimon companions.
>>137751577 >The misterious girl that apeared with dobermon? For what reason was she introduced? Some kid won a digimon design contest in japan with Doberbon as his entry Toei told Chiaki Konaka to put it in regardless if it would fit or not, so he made the digimon the partner of a kid who was the daughter of one of the guys who made digimon in the tamer universe and dobermon only show's up to deliver a program so they can get to mega level outside of the digiworld
Really a lot of tamer's problem can be summarized as "Because the big wigs wanted it in" Card games? because it was popular back then and Bandai was starting with the digimon TCG More tamers? because it appeal more to kids However Juri is only there to suffer, yes, she was also painted as a pacifist, this is a plot point you missed, anon At the start they focus more on takato because he is a whimp and has touble keeping his pet dinossour in check, he goes though the standard MC character act, start as awimp ends ends as a champion Rika and Impmon get the spotlight after that along with Juri in between the lines Henry kinda starts but it gets resolved quite fast and his motivation was the same as Takato for a bit, so it was kinda pointless Terriermon was the tutorial gear, usefull at the start but not o much as the series goes on, after every ne gets perfect forms he is severely down played As designs goes, Guilmon's line is still one of the best in the shows, Terriermon's only down side is its perfect form and the same goes to renamon, its like they spent all their design bucks on Metal Growlmon and cheaped out on the other two, Rapidmon is not even a original digimon Konaka wanted to make digimon a bit more serious but the constrains made by the big wigs and the fact it was still a kids show made his plot holes show up a lot more
>>137752426 Beast evolutions and the idea they couldn't control it at first was pretty good even if a bit dated Though it only really paid off with Vidramon as trying to redo that trop 6 times for the whole cast got boring Also Zoei's beast form was a fucking jobber and had less animation than her human form, not to mention it looked more human than her human form and less hot
>>137751107 In Digimon Adventure Movie, they're in the real world and really young right? And the little boy, Tai or whatever uses a whistle to wake up Greymon, right? I remember that scene making me almost sweat as a kid it was so intense for me at the time.
>>137752096 >Juri was painted as a pacifist. I surelly missed this. In most shows I've seen, a character is painted as a pacifist when he/she declines a duel, clearly stating they don´t like to fight. I kinda maratoned the show, so I may have forgotten Juri stating she didn't want to fight. I forgot about impmon, he was cool. They could allow him a complete redemption, but kinda half assed it. About the other points, I mostly agree; however what I tried to point earlier was: is tamers really the best? and is frontier really that bad? imo: no and no.
