Constantly accused of being a Pokémon rip-off, Digimon has struggled to find a big audience, particularly in the West—it doesn't help that its marketing never really took off out here. However, despite it never gaining a huge fanbase like its rival, Digimon continues to be a strong—if not struggling—franchise that still has a foothold in countries outside of Japan complete with its own loyal fanbase. So when most people think of Fox Kids or Saban Entertainment, they fondly think of either Power Rangers or Digimon (usually the first season), and not so much of the network itself. But for years, it meant risking an all-out read more

Story: The storyline of Adventure evolves (no pun intended) into something wonderful as the series goes on, however, the beginning is very shaky, and, for some audiences, a weak beginning is an automatic turn-off. It starts off very episodic, and, aside from the fact that the kids want to get home and have to fight a guy called Devimon, there is not much else for plot. However, after they get home, the series jumps into one of my favorite anime story arch of all times: The Eight Child arch. That part (which largely takes up the middle of the series) was masterfully done, and if read more

“Remember? How could I ever forget?”

Digimon Adventure 01, a household name, a childhood memory, what did this blast from the past have in store for us?

That one time at band camp... I mean summer camp. Seven children dubbed the Digi-Destined find themselves in an alternate world, filled with bizarre creatures and a luscious ecosystem, where they soon discover the inevitable path they must walk, together. Although initially hostile, they are each partnered with one of these bizarre creatures known as ‘Digimon’ whom they must work together with to not only save the Digital world, but human world as well. Digimon is best described read more

If you were to ask me what it was that possessed me with such a desire to re-watch the Digimon Adventure series I saw when I was younger, I couldn't tell you. Before now my memories of Digimon were not fond, the dubbing in the show was terrible, to the point were I hated the vast majority of the entire cast. I was a lot younger back then so I didn't understand that the occasional stupid things characters did/said were because the script was being hacked up. But beyond the negatives of the show there was a strange charm that reached me, and having re-watched read more

Anime: Pokemon
The main characters both have small monsters as partners, who can evolve into bigger, more powerful monsters. In both series, these monsters are used to battle each other and serve as bodyguards for their "owners." Pokemon was always the most popular of the 2 series, but Digimon is definitely not to be underestimated and by many even rated better than Pokemon.

Anime: Monster Farm: Enbanseki no Himitsu
Another breed of monster show, this along with Pokemon and Monster Rancher was one of the big 3 monster related shows. Filled with crazy creatures and adventures, if you liked this show (or Pokemon) you will very likely enjoy this series.

Anime: Summer Wars
Both of these anime happen to have a very simular theme. A world on the internet with AI, artificial inteligence. In one, you can easily go to the world, while with the other you end up staying away. But it is still two alternative worlds.

Anime: Sonic X
They both are basically based of the same idea: different worlds being parallel to earth. They also have fun talking animal-type things.

Anime: Accel World
On the net there is another world, a world that people can dive into. What seems to be a game isn't one like the main characters think and their lives end up being turned upside down. The suspense also builds up.

Anime: Persona 4 The Animation
I've never tough of this before, but after I saw some fanart crossover between Digimon Adventure and Persona 4, I think they're actually similar...

Better you should compare Digimon to Persona rather than Pokémon, why?
because in both Digimon and Persona, they're really share much similarities...
1. in Digimon, partner are chosen by destiny, same goes to Persona
2. the human partners in Digimon must get their crest and active it... in order to use the crest, they must understand what're their crest really means, why it deserve to be his/her crest? if they've understand it and take an action about it, the tags  read more
