Everyone in the world uses smartphone apps. But inside them lurks unknown creatures called "Appli Monsters," or "Appmon." The Appmon are AI lifeforms with the ability to think and act, and exist in the boundary between the human world and digital space. In the vast sea of the internet, the "last boss AI" Leviathan takes control of the Appmon with a virus and begins hacking every system, thus starting to control the human world from the world of the net. Haru Shinkai is led to acquire the Appli Drive, and uses it to materialize Gatchmon, a search app monster.

soo this is it...the final episode of appmon...for all the series i became very impressed and i love every single thing they did:the cgi,the characters,the semi reboot...

first of all, from july of 2016 i just begin to hate digimon,after 20 years consuming everything they did, but allways felling something like “this is fine but it’s not what i expected for a cybernetic life form story”, and for all this big mess this franchise became. But them, one month ago i simply whant to go back after see some applimon scenes and the openings(koji wada can rest in piece if all the songs have this quality).

This review will contain minor spoilers.

Digimon Universe Appli Monsters is pretty atypical of a Digimon series. The protagonist isn’t a brash hothead and the monsters in the show aren’t even Digimon. They’re called Appmon, and Digimon exists only as some random game in-universe. There’s one episode featuring an Agumon as a special guest star and it’s better fanservice for Adventure fans than all of Tri but I digress. The show leans more heavily into the episodic kids show format more than any other Digimon series before it, with all the bells and whistles that entails. The episodic format is much in the vein of a read more

I will update my review once the series ends (at ep 16). I am committed to finishing this series as it's part of the Digimon franchise. So my critique is as a Digimon fan but also as how this series stands on its own since it diverts from Digimon norm and blatantly is about 'AppMon' and not 'Digimon.' (Note there is an Appli Drive and not Digivice, Deep Web and not Digital World.)

First of all let's talk about the overall impression I've seen people compare it to: Digimon meets Yu-Gi-Oh and Yokai Watch. And... so far that is accurate in terms of designs and some read more

Digimon Universe is a new anime that is causing alot of hub bub with the whole "its using Digimon's name" thing.

I personally don't think this anime deserves hate like that. I find myself enjoying it and will keep watching it until it ends.


Haru Shinkai is a junior high student who always feels like a 'minor' or 'background character' in his life. He spends his days reading books about main characters and how amazing they are. One day, he finds a device called an Appli Drive in a vending machine. After bringing it home, a small monster comes out of his phone, claiming to be named read more
