Digimon Adventure Season 4 Release Date
“Remember? How could I ever forget?”
Digimon Adventure, a household name, a childhood memory, what did this blast from the past have in store for us?
Constantly accused of being a Pokémon rip-off, Digimon has struggled to find a big audience.
As a fan of both Digimon and Pokémon, I don’t see how it’s impossible to like both shows even though at the time I loved Pokémon to death and still do. They may have their similarities, but they are two vastly different creatures who just happen to inhabit the same genre. In fact, despite my love for Pokémon, I find Digimon to be immensely better in the anime department (the games not so much, ironically).
I really like Digimon until now. Each have their own shortcomings, insecurities and past memories that haunt them, which correspond to their crest, allowing deep character progression. Although their emotions are easily manipulated, the maturity to come to their senses and read the situation is also shown consistently throughout. But don’t forget their partners in crime, the Digimon. They resemble the voice of reason in each partnership, almost like a parental figure, although they are shown to be quite childish at times themselves. They switch from cute and cuddly, to imposing beasts in order to protect the ones they cherish, as if they were protecting their young. The evil Digimon are similar in an aspect, they generally represent adults and their personalities tend to stay the same throughout the show.
As a matter of fact, I rewatched this anime often. Digimon Adventure and its sequel, Digimon Adventure 02, were added to the Netflix Instant Streaming service.
However, at an event celebrating the series‘ 15th anniversary on August 1, 2014, a new Digimon Adventure series, Digimon Adventure tri., was announced, scheduled to air in Spring 2015, depicting the main characters as they enter high school.
This is one of those animes that I will never ever forget. How about you? Aren’t you guys craving for more? I really do hope there will be a season 4.
