Synopsis

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.

Presently there are 9 episodes out. I will update my review when there are more episodes. 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 read more

Make a spin-off different isn't bad if you know what things should change and which ones should remain so faithful to the main series as is possible.

But this is not another critique of "They Changed It, Now It Sucks". DUAM has its own merits to sucks.

We have the classic story of saving the Digital World from an evil and dark entity but with the change that now kids are not trapped into a strange and read more
