Digimon, digital monsters, Digimon are the champions! Change into digital champions to save and defend the world!
Soon after Pokemon started dominating American airwaves, everyone started trying to hop in the ratings bonanza. As syndication and Kids’ WB had Pokemon, Fox Kids picked up Digimon, a dub of a Japanese series that was the anti-Pokemon. Where Pokemon was set on a odd Earth, Digimon was set both in the “real world” and a digital expanse. While Pokemon can only say their name, Digimon can fully speak. Pokemon evolutions are permanent, Digivolutions are temporary. Instead of one Pokemon Trainer at the heart of the series (with dozens of Pokemon at his hand), multiple heroes each had one partner.
I wonder how this will compare to the box set released by Madman Entertainment. Hopefully, Digimon Adventure 02 and Digimon Tamers will make their way to DVD as well.
