With Digimon World Re:Digitize for the PSP coming out soon, and the fact that it’s the 15th Aniversary of the Digimon franchise I thought it’d be fun to do something Digimon related. I decided to go back and do the very first Digimon animated special. This movie was a 20 minute special shown in theaters to promote the Digimon Tamgotchi V-pets. The story goes that sometime furing production a TV series was ordered for Digimon and the staff decided to connect it to this movie. In fact, this movie aired one day before the television series started. This movie would be referenced later on in the TV show but could you imagine how confused Japanese children must have been before that? Like, they go see this film and they get to know Taichi, and Hikari, and Greymon and it’s a fun 20 min romp. But then the next day they watch the TV show and Taichi is older, Hikari is no where to be seen, and why does no remember anything!? Of course this all gets answered later on but at the time it must have caused headaches. But anyways, enjoy the movie!
Oh, and as a bonus I included the first OP to the television series. It’s my own take on the lyrics and I hope you enjoy it.
