I asked in the Pokemon thread so I will ask here too, to encourage more discussion: Which anime is better as of NOW, Digimon or Pokemon.
Ehhhh. While I think reception for Applimon was overall positive, it wasnt quite Digimon's usual fare. Tri was divisive at best. I cant say with Pokemon. Sun/Moon was a different animal. I didnt like it, but it wasnt for me. It was aimed squarely at the younger demo.
Tri didn't take flagrant inspiration from Yokai Watch and look how that turned out

I don't have much to say about Pokémon because I've stopped watching it years ago. Of course, once I've heard Ash finally managed to win an official league I admit I pondered if it was worth watching his journey through the victorious region. Just glancing at the new art style was enough to make me scrap that idea.
The Digimon anime had its own share of problems with Tri. I think it started well, but I lost most of my interest in the project after watching the 4th movie. I feel like they didn't know how to wrap up all the plot points and its second half was less than satisfactory. On the bright side, Appmon turned out to be a much needed escape route for the fans that lost interest in the Tri movies.
Honestly, I have little to no interest in the upcoming Adventure movie. The ending of Tri was such a trainwreck I don't think I have much interest left in Tai's universe anymore. To be honest, the franchise would draw much more of my attention if they kept making brand new stories like Appmon.
I really liked Appmon. Yeah they changed some stuff around, but honestly, it wasn't too much of a deal.
Honestly out of all seven seasons Appmon is my favorite. Yeah it's different from what came before it and the plot isn't the most unique but it's easily the best written season of the bunch, the fights are good, and the characters are just that great. It really deserves more praise than it gets.
Ai at least got to be part of the group, even if only on the periphery. I'm not even sure why Watson was even a character. I suspect he was going to be the Kazu or Kenta to Ai's Juri, but both those concepts got dropped eventually.
Oh yeah, good point. Though I feel bad for Ai's actress since Yuujin took over as Haru's love interest. Her and Haru are cute together though.
Yeah, that too.
I admit though, the shift in focus to Yujin was something I didn't expect for a kids show....
...even if it promotes the downplaying of female characters in Shonen, especially merchandise driven shonen.
Writers and executives are so attached to their belief that boys don't want to see girls in their shonen shows, and it irks me.
At least Eri was good and got more to do. Though yeah, a 1 in 5 ratio ain't great, and this is from someone who likes Frontier!
And you even get blink and you miss it moments where one of her fellow idols show up on social media dating another girl.
Oh yeah, I remember that. That was sneaky cool of the writers to put that in.
Wait what episode or episodes what that in?
I think it was the episode that had totally-not-Twitter
But it wasn't the Pokemon Go ripoff episode....man that episode was good.
Pumpkinmon◊ got a Mega for the western release of Digimon ReArise called NoblePumpkinmon.
It actually looks really good, I hope to see its profile soon.
Looks like something from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Set him on fire to get Skellingtonmon.
x6 Regarding the same-sex couple, I think this is the screenshot from Episode 27.
I wish they uploaded again, they have so many cool facts about the show.
FWIW Bamco actually seems genuine in wanting to make a greater effort with their products.
Toei on the other hand whoof
I wonder if that thing could beat Myotismon and avenge the senseless murder of that one Pumpkinmon. Keep in mind Myotismon is absurd for an Ultimate; I could see it being a pretty even fight.
At the very least, it could get a chance to run away. Dunno what the chances Noble Pumpkinmon could have against basically a Mega.

Okay yeah, the games.
NoblePumpkinmon IS a Mega, hence my curiosity as to how he'd do against a Mega-tier Ultimate.
