"In the summer of that year, strange things happened all over Earth."Taichi, Yamato, Sora, Koushiro, Mimi, Jou, and Takeru (nicknamed Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi, Joe, and T.K.) are caught in a mysterious snowfall in the middle of their summer camp. When strange devices fall from the sky, they are sent to another world and meet up with Mons that somehow know their names and are devoted to protecting them. Fighting stronger and stronger enemies to Save Both Worlds, the seven children learn why they are the "Digidestined" and how to become stronger with the power of their own hearts. Later they get a new addition to their team, Taichi's sister, Hikari (nicknamed Kari).And giant monsters. Can't forget that.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 Play Station 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.See also: the character sheet. All tropes related to a single character should be added there instead of here.
