And really, don't worry. If it was random show or something popular, but not from a series I like, I may have just drop after few boring episodes, though I usually give big chance for everything, even if it starts boring. But both Xros Wars and Appmon are from a series I love, so regardless of how many boring stuff there is here, I would bear it. I somehow finished reboot, so there is nothing worse than that...
I recently watched two isekai animes. Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken and Kumo desu ga, nani ka?. While I cannot say TenSura was straight boring, though the first season wasn't rather exciting that much in terms of plot (it was too simple, but characters were amazing), though Kumo desu ga started as a gag anime at first and I was afraid it could be too comedic. But after a while everything got more dark in tone. So even if I start something new, I try giving a chance, regardless of bad sides. And both of them got to the top of my favorite animes, with Dragon Ball (especially original one, not Z, but I love DBZ as well), Digimon Adventure and Slayers next to them. TenSura became super exciting with first season, where things got bigger than before, but I still liked the first season, but it wouldn't be as good if not for the second one.
Also I like emphasis on character bond and development, that's why I love Digimon Adventure, it has tons of it. Appmon sounds like something exactly. As for combat. Digimon Adventure didn't have super exciting fights, yet it's still reigns on the top for me, so don't worry :) I enjoy stuff that has deeper meaning too. Like for example Death Note. There wasn't much of a fights, more of a psychology of characters. And that's why I love Death Note too.
Thanks for the comments :) I really appreciate the conversation.
Sorry that I'm just replying after two years, I never got any notification that I got a comment.
It's like You say, the old cast behave like kids with real life problems that they had and they don't just magically make a bond with their digimons, they accept them and they often have opposite opinion on things, but they often try to understand one another. Perfect example of this is Gomamon and Joe. Goma often teases Joe, when he acts like a wannabe adult, mocking him even. But he doesn't do it out of spite or hatred, quite the contrary. Digimons have waited long for their partners and they want to create the bond, as they form a catalyst for the kids' growing up, "evolution" of their characters, personalities. The crests are just manifestations, but the way they have to understand their traits is not just "power of love, activate". They literally have to understand the wrong in their doing and thinking, like Mimi was selfish or Yamato had to prove that Joe is his friend, not a foe. Something that lacks in many shows, not just Digimon Adventure:, a failed reboot.
And they did many things better than the original, technically-wise, not just a graphics has improved, but also the fact that there is more than the one character to fight. Unless it's the finish of the show, where Taichi literally appeared in every episode "saving the day". As a person, who likes Taichi, I DESPISED THAT. I'm not sure what they have tried to make by that, but that was anti-everything. But I definitely liked that characters other than Taichi and Yamato fought their fights too and got their final evolutions. That's something original lacked, making Taichi a main character, Yamato his rival and support, as well as Takeru and Hikari, who both often made things possible for Taichi and Yamato. But the rest was left alone. I wish they actually made deep character development, because they can. They did this many times. Even meaningless fights could be more bearable, if characters were more interesting.
As for the App Monster, I'm going to watch this. But I'm going to do a full rewatch from first Adventure till Xros Wars and App Monster. Because for some reason I always stopped at Xros Wars. Not because I don't want to watch, not because I find it boring. I just randomly drop it. I have to finally watch it all. Also I kinda make a Digidex personal project, giving digimons a number, depending on order of their appearance in anime. As I won't try to dig who appeared before in other media like games, mana etc, I'm only taking anime as the source. I was actually doing it last time, when I dropped half way through the Frontier. But I'm going to do this once again when I'll rewatch next time, hopefully finishing Xros Wars and App Monster. Tbh, I just wish something like that existed already, including media other than anime.
As for the ugly CGI, don't worry, it's hard to make me annoyed/bored by a series. I mean, if something is bad, I eventually would drop it, but just weird CGI or even some annoyances won't stop me from watching it. After finishing Adventure reboot, I doubt any series would be as bad, really.
And as for comedic villains... have You ever watched original Dragon Ball? Not DBZ, the first Dragon Ball, before big cosmic-scale battles started. The first main villain was so much of a grotesque. Later on they decided to make things more serious, but it all started as a very gag anime/manga.
And don't worry, I can understand when early episodes or just some of the episodes later on are worse, as long as overall quality is great. My goal is to not judge things by the cover, so I often try to believe it will all be better, even if it never gets better at the end, like that terrible reboot, that had many amazing ideas and other stuff in it, but just failed in most important stuff that are characters and their traits.
Sorry for very long reply. Have a very nice day or night :)
Got a quick question, is that guy from your pfp/forum from any manga? :O
Yeah, I heard about both Akudama and Kamisama. Which is a real shame, since I was actually curious about checking the latter out (nah, maybe I'll still give it a try)
I heard about that. Though interestingly, I hear some people said, that the manga went to shit, after they escaped the orphanage, so they see this anime original path as a way to "improve it".
Oh yeah, Kemono Jihen does look pretty cool, as do the other two. Maybe I'll watch one of them at some point :D
Currently, I'm watching Ghost Stories (aka the best dub in human history XD)
And from this season, I am watching "Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear". I really liked the manga, so I was really excited for this. The first episode sucked, but the 2nd one is already a big improvement over it.
It's been a while :D
I actually read at least some of the first chapters (up to when the Mimic Plant appears). It's not bad or anything like that, but I feel like the pacing is a bit...off. Like important bits just appear, there's no break to get to know the characters better (another problem I have is, forgetting who is who, outside of like the main-character) and it just rushes to everything. That's at least how I feel about it.
But as you can tell from my Plan-to-Watch list, I have a lot of stuff to get through, especially all the different seasons of Digimon. But yeah, I'd love to share my opinion with you on that.
Yeah, I get what you mean. I usually wait with my blogs, until a show is finished or something like that, unless it's a manga, since those go on for quite a long time.
Hmm, I never thought about it like that. But I can definitely see what you mean. But I haven't watched enough anime to really know.
