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

Appmon is one of those rare anime that comes along every once in a while. Where at first glance, you're already going to love it, or you're going to hate it. Whether it be because you're a longtime digimon fan who doesn't want change, or just because you're not a fan of its childish, bright and colorful art style, it's hard to go in with an unbiased mind. But I feel like if you're going in with the understanding of what the show is meant to be, and not what you desire, it's an absolute masterpiece in ever sense of the word.

A quick note: Digimon fan since I was 7 years old... I'm 28 now and I've watched all Digimon media to this point and also played a few Digimon videogames.

Warning to everyone planning to watch this because it's related to Digimon: it isn't. The name is there to create buzz and bring viewers because there's absolutely nothing Digimon in this series. The monsters are mainly based on smartphone apps and I would have no issues with this if the show didn't try to leech off Digimon (or any other series). Oh and what are they called? AppliMonsters. As I said, the only Digimon here read more
