I'm probably one of the only, if not the only, person who really liked Savers/Data Squad. Arguably I think that one would have to be my favorite. Got me back into Digimon and actually into Digimon enough where I actually watched the whole thing. Before then it was just whenever I caught it on TV and thus I watched only a little bit of Tamers and a bit of Frontier. I might go back and watch those (as I did with Adventure 1/2 thanks to Netflix) sometime so I have actually watched them from start to end.

Yeah I watched a bit of tamers but there was a large portion of my life where digimon wasn't in it sadly because I had no way of getting my hands on digimon since in australia if you found something digimon you are very lucky

Frontier is my favorite season because I always enjoyed watching it and I couldn't easily find fault with it. While Tamers is probably the best written season of Digimon, Frontier was just what I enjoyed about watching Digimon without majorly weak writing. (If 02 wasn't such a mess, it would be my favorite season.)

I haven't seen much of Savers, but I'm thinking of sitting down and finally watching it to form my own opinion on it. It was released at a point in time when it was really difficult for me to find Digimon on television, and I had very little access to the Internet.

Which is the one with the different Agumon? Is that Savers? I watched the first few episodes of that and really didn't like it :(

Frontier though, I think I want to watch more closely. Still haven't tried it properly.

I didn't mind 02, the last few episodes were like PLOT TWIST AND HERES ANOTHER PLOT TWIST but other than that I didn't mind it because it gave some sort of post story for the original digidestined and what they are doing after the whole adventure though I didn't like how Sora ended up liking Matt because what about Tai yeah it showed he had developed as a character the way he took it but... Tai and Sora were supposed to... Plus I like Veemon and the digimon movie for it where they meet willis made me cry as a kid.

It's one of those seasons where the first few episodes are pretty slow but it picks up after a bit. Don't know if that is enough to give you another try but since it's overall not one of the most popular seasons I understand.

I like 02 overall. But the biggest problem with 02 is that no one really got development other than Ken. You didn't really know most of the characters backstories and while they made some attempts into getting some character development in it didn't really succeed as much as they did in Adventures. Then you have the ending that was, for the most part, really out of the blue and almost ridiculous. Yamato/Matt suddenly becoming an astronaut, Sora/Matt although we saw little development on screen, and speaking of development despite all the onscreen time they had TK and Kari didn't get together. Or even Kari/Daisuke (Davis?) which would have still made a bit more sense than Sora/Matt.

... Yeah I'll stop rambling now haha.

There was someone on Tumblr who asked Hiroyuki Kakudou, Digimon creator and series director about Yamato and Sora, especially their relationship and occupations in the epilogue.

Yamato became an astronaut for several reasons. From a franchise standpoint, 02 was going to have its own sequel, where enemies came from space. Yamato become an astronaut is a remnant of this idea. His official Adventure profile says that he's an athletic boy who also does well in school. His personality fits the military ideal. Between who he is as a character ("Yamato" even being Japan's ancient name), how Japan's military is, and proposed ideas for 02's sequel, it makes sense for him to become an astronaut.

As for Sora being a fashion designer, that shows her development as a character. She's taking more after her mother, instead of "rebelling" against her mother and the traditional ideas. The clothes Sora designs are modern clothing. They're kimonos. Kimonos are part of Japanese traditional tea ceremonies, along with flower arranging. In the epilogue, when Sora is shown with her designs, there are flowers in the scene. The Takenouchi family is traditional, and Sora's character development from Adventure through to the epilogue show that she understands her mother's traditional ideas and accepts them.

Now as for their relationship, that was planned right from the start of Adventure. Yes, the epilogue was originally planned to be at the end of the first season, rather than the second. (It was midway through Adventure that 02 was agreed upon to be a thing.) Kakuduo said that Taichi and Sora's (Taiora) relationship was only friendship and nothing more. It was always going to be Sora and Yamato (Sorato) becoming a couple. Only three script writers for the Japanese version knew about Sorato, which was why there was so little foreshadowing about the couple in Adventure. As for foreshadowing in 02, Sora and Yamato were background characters and the writers wanted to focus more on the main characters.

If you look through their relationship in Adventure, you'll find that Sora and Yamato understand each other. The same person who collected all this information did an analysis of Digimon Adventure episode 26 here.

The information can be found here and here.

I haven't found anything yet about Takeru and Hikari, but I haven't really gone looking. The only small bit of information I found was a brief mention that the writers of the series didn't want them to get together, but the animators did. After reading that, it is possible. Quite a few pieces of evidence about Takeru and Hikari liking each other more than just friends are bits of animation, and nothing really from the original series. EDIT: And this also makes sense with the fact that Takeru is the one writing the story. Therefore, there wouldn't be much evidence in the written portion of Digimon compared to the animated form.

I didn't mention Sora becoming a fashion designer because it was one that made sense t me. But I didn't know about why Yamato/Matt became an astronaut. That's an interesting read and I'm glad you showed it. I think I'm okay with the idea a bit better now.

I have heard that they wanted Sorato from the beginning. I think that they could have just done a better way about it. While in the first Adventures they understood each other I still feel like they didn't really get the interaction that they could have? It just stops me from shipping it as much as I could (because I do think it's a nice one. It just... lacked support imo. Maybe if more people know about Sorato so they could have dropped more hints than just in episode 26.)

Overall though thanks for the info! I'm glad to see that, while still a little awkward, they at least still have grounds for the choices they made.

Personally after reading that if the directors planned it from the beginning bravo because alot of shows make the main character and a close friend get together they instead use a rival of the leader of the main characters who is like the main main character. I found that quite brave to do with the norm being main main character gets together with what you would assume the main main characters interest.

With Davis, Kari and T.K. I don't really mind with what happens with them what i do want to know is if Joe and Mimi get together and how their life pans out after 02. I would love a X part series where every episode it features the life after digimon 02 for the main cast like what does Koby do afterwards and what does Izzy do and how their life pans out in a full 26 minutes

Do you mean the little electronic toys that were pedometers? If so, I have two from each season (except for Savers and Fusion). Currently, the only one that I have batteries in is Yamato's from Adventure, and I started with an Agumon. I don't use it much.

The others that I have are Taichi's, Takeru's, Daisuke's, Lee's, Takato's, Takuya's, and Koji's. I didn't really like the ones from Frontier, but they were amusing. The human children were the ones on the screen instead of any Digimon. It was fun to watch Tomoki sit down and look around on the screen. He's the only one I really remember from when I used those toys.

The Tamers ones were the best ones. I spent a lot of time playing with those, sliding the blue card and battling with Renamon. It was a fun way to get exercise!

The subtlety does hurt Sorato, especially with audiences that are coming from the English version. I didn't even accept their relationship until months after the epilogue.

Fortunately, Jippy has more posts about Sorato evidence being found throughout the series. There's this post about the differences between the Japanese and English versions and this one where each writer's episode is looked at for Sorato foreshadowing.

Like I said, it does hurt that Sorato was developed originally in a series about children where the focus was on friendship, and I do agree that they could have had more development as a couple. Especially in 02 and especially for dub audiences (who also weren't given the drama CDs).

Woh, I actually have come to accept sorato because of the way they changed it in the dub, thankyou. Also the digivice or pendulums were virtual pets aimed at boys like tamagotchi I had... 3... I think cannot remember 1 broke and another ran out of batteries also I lost the 3rd one not to long ago.

Oh, you were asking about the Digimon virtual pets! I still have my very first one from back in 1999, a dark blue one with grey buttons. It just needs new batteries in it to run again, which I'm planning on putting in tomorrow. I can only get Greymon on it (since I'm incapable of taking bad care of my Digimon) and can't go any higher than that (because I only have the one so I can't battle with anyone).

I really want to get a Pendulum X 2.0, 2.5, or 3.0 for Ryudamon. Maybe the minis from XROS Wars will be released in America.

Maybe.

Okay... ^w^ *Blushes.
I was thinking in something like this... How about if we have the choice of adopting
a Digimon/ Having a Digital partner and raise it from the Digiegg/ Digitama... Like Digidestined do.
I got the idea from Pokemon/Digimon RPs (BTW, any active Digimon RP over here?)

Basically, you can adopt up to... 6(?) Digimon for making teams, xross, etc. for making things funnier, we can adjust some time to the raising Digimon time...

Let me explain it:

X person requests an egg.
-You add a random image of a Digiegg to a "new tab" called Digimon adoption center / Digital Partner / IDK...
-After a day, the egg hatches into the Digimon that the user chose (Obviously a Fresh/ Baby 1 one...)
-With the time, X person raises the Digimon until reaching the Mega Levels...
About times related to raising, I think that we could evolve a Digimon when some days have past/ or with some requeriments... Something like this:
Spoiler:

  • Digiegg needs 1 Day
  • Fresh/ Baby 1 needs 1 Day
  • In-training/ Baby 2 needs 2 Days
  • Rookie/ Child needs 3 Days
  • Champion/ Adult needs 4 Days
  • Ultimate/ Perfect needs 5 Days
  • Mega 1/ Ultimate needs 6 Days
  • Mega 2/ Super Ultimate needs 7 Days
(And about special evolutions, such as Warp/DNA/Blast/Bio-merge/Spirit-related/Digimental-related/Mode changes/Xros(up)/ etc... I was thinking on having a NPC to give random tasks to do...)


Also I was thinking that we could roleplay our Digimon... heh!
And that was my idea... Any suggestion, comment or word, just tell me and I'd be glad to answer...

-MG might be talking about something different for the club. Like every member chooses an egg that you add to the first post next to our names (like our Digimon partners). After a day, the egg hatches into the Baby I form of our choosing. As time goes on, the Digimon evolves to their Ultimate form. And I guess we can roleplay our Digimon interacting with each other in the club?

It might be fun, but it seems like a lot of work to keep track of who adopted what Digimon when. Especially if each member can have up to six Digimon at a time.

Heh! That's exactly what I meant.
Well, about keeping record of the adopted Digimon, I think that's not a big deal. It's just a matter of order and some patience for taking gifs and editing the tab... I wouldn't mind of taking charge of that part. Just have to reach at least the 15 posts for image management... XDDD

Also, welcome to the club, Slaying moon!

Do you guys look forward to the dubbing of Digimon Xros Wars/Fusion?
Topic answer: Of course! It can only mean a good thing for future Digimon series to come. And I believe it's already being dubbed now so perhaps it's time for a new topic?

---

Hello everyone my name is Optic and I'm from Perth in Western Australia. My favourite Digimon series of all time is Digimon Frontier. Back in 2003 I opened up a Digimon Frontier fansite called The Digimon Frontier Network, it went up and down under different names until finally bringing it back with a new look.

I'm a big collector of Digimon Frontier, I've got the Japanese Digimon Frontier DVD set (for making high quality screenshots), various Digimon Frontier art books, a calendar, Vol 1 and 2 of the Manhua (graphic novel) and the Best Hit Parade soundtrack CD.

I think it's a little sad how there are nowhere near as many Digimon fansites as there used to be back in the Digimon Tamers/Frontier days, it seems they have dwindled in favour of Wikis and social media feeds... as a result I'm currently working on a Digimon Savers/Data Squad fansite.

Sorry for the long post - look forward to joining your discussions here!
