    Thoughts on the Digimon seasons?

    Post by Link451 on August 13th 2010, 9:22 pm

    I've been rewatching all the seasons lately and would say from favorite to least favorite:
    1. Season 1
    2. Season 2
    3. Season 5
    4. Season 4
    5. Season 3

    Season 1 was amazing. Loved the characters, story and just the original feeling. Season 2 was awesome as well. 5 I liked Marcus and Thomas a lot and their conflict, along with the story behind Kurata tricking everyone and Mercurymon and all... so a good season. 4 was okay, I'd say. Better than I remembered my first time watching it.

    I'm not actually done rewatching 3 yet (am done with the other four though), and after rewatching it I'm really thinking it's pretty mehish. I've finished about the first 25 episodes and the plot's just not as appealing to me, not to mention all the characters except Rika, Henry and Takato are real irritating. Hopefully I'll start liking it better as I go on, but I dunno...

    In my opinion, Season 3 as a whole was, without question, the best in the franchise.

    It's a little slow and gimmicky in the beginning, but a much more meaningful and coherent plot starts developing in the background. The main characters had meaningful backstories and serious flaws that actually become relevant to the plot later on. And the last arc, the Reaper Program, is easily one my all time favorite stories of anime in general.

    I like the first 4 seasons, even though I missed the last 2 or so episodes of season 3 and only watched a chunk of season 4 when it was on TV and I was bored.

    I still have all these seasons on my hard drive, they were so good. I used to love watching them every morning before school when i was little.

    My favorites in order are 2, 1, 4, 3

    I'm yet to see any of the fifth season as I've heard terrible reviews on it. I'm currently working on getting through seasons one and two again though :D

    What does everyone have against season 3? Did you guys actually see the whole thing? It constantly gets better as it goes on.

    I said that it was good. I liked Season 1 more, but I just re watched it and it was definitely great.

    I haven't watched Digimon in at least 10 years, but from what I remember...

    1. Great
    2. Good
    3. Decent
    4. You have got to be f**king kidding me.

    I gave up upon the 4th season's first episode.

    There's no doubt about that. It got really good around episode 30 with Beelzemon killing Leomon and all the drama with Jeri. The others on the other hand, though, stayed consistently interesting and good throughout the whole series.

    Yeah, that's true. The other seasons were also very good, as well. But I still think Season 1 was better than Season 3.

    Even before that, the characters and setting were established in much greater detail than the previous seasons. The digi-destined were pretty much defined by a single character trait: Matt was the antisocial one™, Izzy was the smart one™, etc. The tamers, however, from the moment they're introduced, feel like real people.

    The original Digital World was just a parallel universe (with nothing particularly "digital" about it) that came out of nowhere and needed the help of a few Earth kids to fight the evil digimon that were wreaking havoc in both of their worlds, it wasn't a bad plot by any means, but it just pales in comparison to the maturity of Tamers' man-made, violently regulated Digital World.

    Season 1 was just consistently decent, but by the time the tamers went to their Digital World, it far surpassed any of the other seasons, and for me personally, just about any other anime I can remember.

    The first three seasons of Digimon were great, but I’m not so sure about the rest since I haven’t really watched them all that much. Among the five of these shows, Digimon Tamers struck a chord with me the most.

    I have watched some of it. It is okay, but they should have had more evolutions other then just Shoutmon in different forms... then again, I have only watched to like... episode 5.

    On a separate note, I think I'm near the end of Digimon Savers (aka Digimon Data Squad), its pretty good, and has some pretty awesome Mega level digimon.

    On a separate separate note, I found this on a website I frequently go to. All I can say is: THIS is what they should have done for the openings instead of the stupid English opening.

    ...eerrr, if you mean like Digimon Adventure and all the other seasons, then yes. If you mean the first season and its different story arks... then no.
    To Yioibon: Do you mean the new lyrics? Its not that bad, I personally liked them.

    I'll give the pros and cons of the first 5 seasons. I watched the english dubs if you were wondering..

    Adventure 1:
    Pros- great start to the whole series, stunning timing on the first warp digivolutions, fun enemies Myotismon and Piedmon, memorable characters, i won't ever forget this season!
    Cons- apolycamon was only in 2 episodes, Sora was very bland, other "dark masters" were nothing compared to piedmon

    Adventure 2:
    Pros: Patamon was cute, nice to see old characters
    Cons: other than ken there was ZERO character development, the dark ocean was a waste of space, new characters annoyed me so much, the ultimates were terrible, arukenimon and mummymon reminded me of team rocket, going back and forth through digital world like it was a freakin game :/

    Tamers:
    Pros: mainly focused on 3 characters, BIOMERGING CAME OUT OF NOWHERE!, though the kids were a bit younger the show was more mature, beezelmon, amazing ending
    Cons: almost every adult in the season said at one point- "They're only children...", some people refuse to finish the series after seeing the cards

    Frontier:
    Pros: good characters in Koji and Kouichi, duskmon looked amazing, difficulty level was insane throughout the season, mercurymon demolishing seraphimon
    Cons: No digimon partners, tagalong digimon bobamon and neemon...., the royal knight arc dragged on for what seemed like decades, lucemon's second form defeated with one attack

    Data Squad/Savers
    Pros: many episodes ended dramatically, therefore hard to stop watching, kurata wasn't one of those villians that becomes swayed by digidestined(great change of pace), redundant fight/digivolution music but never got sick of it
    Cons: reiterated friendship, courage, and whatnot way too many times, kristy and biyomon was an annoying subplot, season felt a lot longer than it actually was(in a very bad way)

    Heres my overall ranking-
    Tamers
    Frontier
    Adventure 1
    Data Squad
    diarrhea
    Adventure 2

    I've watched every season all the way through and am open to debate :D
