"In the summer of that year, strange things happened all over Earth."Seven ordinary kids are caught up in a strange snowstorm while attending summer camp and get sucked through a portal into the Digital World, a fantasy world populated by sentient monsters called Digimon. Armed with the mysterious "Digivices" and seven Digimon who are sworn to protect them, the kids try to survive in this new and exotic world until they can find a way home.Over time, the kids slowly come to understand their role as the "Digidestined" of legend, fighting not only a number of hostile Digimon but their own fears, insecurities and character flaws. But when the conflicts in the Digital World spill over into the Human World, the stakes are raised and the kids must decide what they are willing to sacrifice if they want to Save Both Worlds.The first anime series in the Digimon franchise, adapted from the virtual pets. What the series lacked in production values, it more than made up for with incredible writing, being one of the first 'kids' shows to have great characterization that continually developed. We came for the monsters and we stayed for the children. It was followed up by Digimon Adventure 02, and was accompanied by a pair of Short Anime Movies.More recently, a straight-up anniversary adaptation of the series for the Playstation Portable was announced, developed by Yuji Naka's studio, Propenote , and will feature the events from every episode, all eight Chosen Children as playable characters, as well as Our War Game as an additional chapter, as well as an unlockable bonus chapter featuring the main characters of the other Digimon anime series.◊note Needless to say, the fan reaction was unanimously positive, but many are a little disappointed, as the PSP is all but dead outside of Japan (and the PlayStation Vita is flopping hard there, so no hope for a release on that handheld either.. One may best hope for a Nintendo 3DS port, but even then, it's a bit useless since the 3DS is region-locked), and knowing Namco Bandai, it's unlikely we'll see a localization in any case.The English dub is currently rerunning on Nicktoons (in primetime, even!) as part of the leadup to the eventual debut of Digimon Fusion, referred to by the network and Saban Brands as Digimon Adventures note . Both the English dub and an official subbed version are available for streaming on Netflix. Saban is currently promoting Digimon Adventures through the official Digimon Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.See also: the character sheet.
