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.

What a masterpiece of Digimon serie which the spotlight got overtaken by Digimon Tri. (Tri is a complete dumpster fire)
If I have to use one sentence to describe this serie, it'd be this is a show on surface level catered and aiming toward kids, however have enough insight and theme for adults to fully enjoy and appreciate the show.

It's such a controversy approach because it may end up driving away both side of audience if they didn't give enough patience to sit through the whole show and digest the theme and characters. The show try to go through a deep and dark theme with flamboyant ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (37/52 eps)
at the time I made this review, I've watched up until episode 37, so maybe my opinion will change later, or maybe not, who knows?

Anyway, I hated the beginning of the anime, and this is coming from someone that has watched all of the previous Digimon series, there was just SO MUCH filler, it was basically like watching Yo-Kai Watch, and then I found out that the creator of the Yo-Kai Watch anime wrote Appmon, and at that point my expectations were really low...

then later it got a little better, only a little, when it actually started focusing on Leviathan, and along the way we ...

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 ...
