If I had to choose one anime of the 90s that I could rewatch all over again, I would definitely go for ‘Digimon Adventure.’ Back in the day, I don’t know what exactly drew me towards this show. Maybe the fact that it was too similar to ‘Pokemon‘ or simply all the hype around it forced me to watch it. Being young, the flaws in its English Dub did not matter to me and I was just lost in its strange charm that affected me and many other young viewers.
Rewatching it all over again, would just simply bring back that same old nostalgic charm that once captivated an entire generation. Apart from the whole classic late 90s feel of the anime, it also has a pretty intelligent story that may be appealing to adults as well. It does have a fair share of cheesy emotional moments that are targeted more towards a younger audience. But even with these, you’ll find yourself smiling instead of rolling your eyes.
The art of the anime has substantially improved over the years and is still getting better with each movie/ season. Even when we consider the first run of the anime, Toei Animation was clearly a little ahead of its time with this one. The characters of the anime have always had this realistic feel to them that is because of both their detailed animation and personalities. The Japanese intros and outros of the show are very catchy even though there is nothing too great about them and even other aspects of sound are just satisfactory. Overall, ‘Digimon’ may not exactly be appealing to the anime audience of today but it will always have a special place in the hearts of those who experienced it when it first came out with its lovable cast and an extremely fashionable adventure story.
