In April, the new Digimon series: Digimon Adventure was stopped due to the pandemic. Toei Animation confirmed this hiatus on Twitter, and there was no information about when the series will be back.
Three episodes had come out before the anime was delayed due to COVID-19. Crunchyroll was streaming it as it aired in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Even though the new series looked promising, it had major pacing issues and was disappointing in multiple ways. Still, it was a major throwback to Digimon fans, and they watched it for their love for the series. Now, the series is coming back from its break.
The TV anime Digimon Adventure will be rebroadcast from Episode 1, from Sunday, June 7, at 9 AM on Fuji TV.
Digimon, short for “Digital Monsters,” is a Japanese media franchise offering toy pets, manga, anime, games, films, and even a trading card game. The franchise was created back in 1997 as a series of virtual pets, influenced by Tamagotchi/nano Giga Pet toys.
The franchise gained momentum with its first anime, Digimon Adventure, and an early video game, Digimon World, both of which were released in 1999.
Digimon, the series focuses on monsters like creatures, who inhabit a “Digital World,” a parallel universe that originated from Earth’s various communication networks. Digimon hatch from eggs called Digi-Eggs, and they go through Digivolution, which changes their appearance and increases their powers over time.
The effect of Digivolution, however, is not permanent. Digimon who have digivolved will find most of the time revert back to their previous form after a battle or if they are too weak to continue. Most of them can even speak.
