You can begin to understand how television serials from your childhood can influence you in the present… when you’ve seen Digimon. Digimon is exactly the kind of anime series that can bring tons of laughter, excitement, and joy – you can be 8 or 18 or 28 and still be drawn to the series. The plot leaves you in suspense and the adventures are engaging to follow along. Just have a look at that Digimon logo! It can bring a wave of nostalgia (or you’re like pssh Pokemon was way better). One thing we can all appreciate, however, is how the whole concept of Digimon reflected Japan’s rapid technological developments during the 80s and 90s, which makes it an important series in addition to its entertainment value.
Facts to Know:
