Digimon Frontier

Is Lucemon's arc really that bad? I don't remember much about it. But people here tends to despise it.

I liked how it was about the heroes trying to simply minimize the damage in the wake of overwhelming obstacles

but at the same time it really fucked over the pacing

Not Lucemon's arc. It's the Royal Knights arc that ruins it.

If you're wasting 9 episodes on the same thing over and over in Digimon, something's clearly wrong. 02 did a very similar thing over about 5 episodes with BlackWarGreymon destroying Holy Stones. It was terrible to watch.

dub theme is unironically based



For me it's Ruki Makino. The best, strongest and prettiest Digimon girl and also the queen

It's the same 2 digimon vs the same 2 digimon over and over and the rest of the kids were powerless
Not the most entertaining thing to watch

lucemon fight was great, it was the 10 episodes of the heroes failing and failing again that sucked.

You're thinking of adventure, not frontier.

Based abd redpilled

I hate how "Soul vs Souless" this is, because the 2020 is actually well animated.
But there's no beating a good art direction, no matter how fluid your animation is

I'm watching Frontier right now, finished up to 35. It's been pretty good since episode 20, even if Junpei, Izumi, and Tomoki are now very obviously the weakest links. Hyper Spirit Evolution was really cool, but I can't help but feel that Aldamon and Beowolfmon are going to go the way of Agnimon, Vritramon, Wolfmon, and Garummon while simultaneously also removing Blitzmon, Bolgmon, Fairimon, Shutumon, Chackmon, Blizzarmon, Lowemon, and KaiserLeomon from play. I'm also not looking forward to an arc where the kids job to two Royal Knights never even mentioned prior for episode after episode.

Lucemon was definitely foreshadowed since the beginning. He's in the opening and his story is explained in episode 3 and several times after, and there's still a good cour to go after Cherubimon. I think that people watching it at the time could have been able to predict it. Lucemon: Falldown Mode also debuted in the D-Scanner 3.0 in December 2002 during the final fight against Cherubimon, so it was basically a given that he'd be the final boss. Then again, we got Double Spirit forms for all the Legendary Warriors, and none of those ever appeared.

Is the new anime good? Is it literally just a remake of the first one?

Thanks for giving me a good segue.

It's not a remake but a reboot. Same kids (different voices and different clothes) at the same age as the original with the same Digimon (same voices apart from Tailmon), but it takes place in 2020. Plot has played out differently. They already hit Omegamon at episode 2 while fighting the main monster of the Savers movie.

Nobunaze best boi

I never watched the shows as a kid and wondering if the reboot is a good point to check it out

>Hurricane Touchdown had EIGHT animation directors

The original show is a treasure in its original version but there's two things the newcomer needs to get over to appreciate it
1)It takes time to start, like... At least a whole arc of 13episodes
2)The animation is garbage
Everything else compensates those (music, the characters, the plot) but there's no denying it's a problem.

The new show is enjoyable, very well animated but I doubt it will have the same emotional weight as the original. It's good though, I think a newcomer can enjoy it as well, even though few things are explained and it goes quickly

It's seems promising enough, but it has some questionable decisions that will mean nothing to you since you aren't familiar with the series.
The show is now on an indefinite hiatus though.
I would like to recommend watching the first and third season since they both hold up really well even as an adult watching this.
The third season is written by the guy who write texnolyze and Lain so that might pique your interest if you're on the fence.

Art does look pretty good. Wasn't sure if it was a he or a she because of the -ko.

I watched the original run (Adventure, 02, Tamers, Frontier) as a kid, but I've been going through each series now in Japanese. There is a lot that is legitimately good about each series outside of nostalgia barring maybe 02. Adventure especially has some really good stuff going on, so I'd say it's worth watching. Just don't expect good animation outside of the movies or episode 21 or very short blippets.

No, no, Hurricane Touchdown has eight animation director ASSISTANTS.
It has nine animation directors.

Thank you anons

What does Hurricane Touchdown even mean?

EVERYTHING about frontier was bad, some things were just marginally less bad

I mean holy shit, imagine being a 12 year old and your favorite character is any of the kids who do NOTHING for the rest of the show. Every week you tune in just to watch on the off chance maybe they'll get to contribute but nope, gotta shill those super duper evolutions over and over again.

I wish Zoey did more.

Ah, I missed Yamashita. That was why. Nine fucking animation directors. I know it's the longest of the original Adventure run but jeez.

For the longest time I wondered what the fuck vamde meant in vamdemon.
Obviously vam is for vampire, but I never knew why they attached "de" to it abd not just call him vampmon.
I now just realized it's a combination if vampire and demon.

The point where a hurricane lands, like ground zero. I think it's just supposed to sound dramatic, like being in the middle of a huge dramatic event that's about to go on for a while.

It's the length of both the first and second movies combined. I can only posit that OWG was such a huge success both critically and financially that Toei decided to get all the cooks they could in one kitchen for the next film.
