I will say, the music is infinitely better in season 2.  That bubblegum pop fight song they constantly played in season 1 worked wonders to destroy any tension in the moment.  At least in the English version.

The thing I don't get is why the kids still need to hide the existence of Digimon from their parents?  This is only a few years after big ass dinosaur Digimon and shit attacked the real world, so it can't be that everybody has simply forgotten.  I could maybe get the new kids doing it, but the older kids were literally seen off by their parents as they flew into a giant magic beam of light that took them to the Digi-world.  Why are they hiding their Digimon now?

I dun geddit.
yeah its weird..... maybe they dont want their parents 2 know that they are still digi-adventuring since its dangerous....

idk what the english version is like but the jp version of season 1 plays this cheesy song in pretty much every fight scene.... it kinda owns imo

They referred to this lady as "Arukenimon" for about 10 episodes before the "big reveal" that she was actually a digimon oh my god.



I'm gonna assume that one comes down to translation error.

I suppose so.  I don't really know what happened, I was just going to watch the first few episodes for nostalgia.  Tough to stop once you've started, though.

Wait what the heck just happened in the last 5 minutes of season 2?  They kill the bad guy and suddenly it's the future where everybody gets a Digimon and there's ambassadors and free travel between worlds and the broody guy gets the girl.  whaaat

I like season 3 better already.  The characters don't seem to be completely awful like season 2.

Except the merchandising is pretty darn blatant now.  CHECK OUT THESE SWIPE CARDS YOU CAN BUY

Noooo, Davis narrates all the outros.  Don't do this to me, Digimon.

Netflix removed Digimon from streaming in the middle of me watching it.  Are you fucking kidding me?

And thus ends the Digimon journey.

Season 1: I liked the episodes that I actually remembered as a kid.  Some good nostalgia fuel.  More objectively, it was kinda slow and extremely formulaic.
Season 2: Every new character was awful.  Some of the old characters became more charming.  A ton of digivolution padding.  One episode I swear did the full evolution sequence for every single digimon in a row.  Took like 2-3 minutes.  The "dark ocean" stuff seemed interesting but didn't really go anywhere.
Season 3: Actually... kinda good.  Overall writing and animations improved, less padding.  The kids were more likable.  Feels like there's a bit more depth in there.  Can't help but feel the entire cards gimmick was a ploy to make me buy toys, though.

Also I'm very confused about the season 2 > 3 jump.  I think they just dropped the canon completely?  But they made it sound like the S3 teacher is grown up Kari, so I don't bloody know.

if by season 3 u mean digimon tamers, ive never watched that but i think its supposed to be kind of a standalone thing from the first two seasons? whereas season 2 is a direct sequel to season 1

theres a recent-ish series called "digimon adventure tri" which is a direct sequel to seasons 1 & 2 (focusing on the s1 characters) but i dont think its dubbed, and also its not even finished yet..... it has a weird release format where they release like 4-5 episodes at a time every few months, and theyve only released four "chunks" of episodes out of six total

I think so.  Netflix displayed them as different seasons in the same series, but it seemed pretty different compared to the first two.

I don't normally mind subtitles, but for me this is a "put it on the other monitor for background noise" type of show.  So dubbed is the only way this'll work.

Also by the way Davis is a bad character.
