It's truly a great series, with good voice-acting, character development, a well-rounded cast, etc, etc...
However, regardless of all that, I just can't bring myself to actually watch it, because, as the title of this review says, it is just Absolutely A Bloody Big Cosmic Clusterfuck.
Why do I consider it as such? Because of Ryo, and Millenniumon
. If you haven't played the games, the brief summation is that in-between Adventure and 02, Ryo is called to the Digital World, to fight Millenniumon, which was formed from Kimeramon, and the dying Machinedramon, of the four Dark Masters
Near the end of the fourth game, ZeedMillenniumon
on the Adventure universe, retroactively creating the Dark Masters, causing one half of the circumstances leading to his creation, and in the third, he infects Ken with a Dark Spore, which eventually causes him to create Kimeramon two years, finally allowing Zeed Mille
to create himself.
Millenniumon has caused literally everything, in both Adventure and 02. He caused the existence of the Dark Masters, created the original Dark Spore infecting Ken, which caused him to become the Digimon Kaiser, you name it! Anything in both Adventure and 02 can be traced back to him.
How the Adventure universe literally hasn't been ripped asunder from this paradox, I'll never know.
The series, and it's sequel
, are a fine anime, and a less fine anime, though still decent, respectively as stand-alone pieces, but if/when you take the story of Ryo into account, it quickly becomes incredibly convoluted.
In this light, the Tamers-reboot
becomes far more understandable, and justified.
