ANIME REVIEW: DIGIMON

2880px-Digimon_Logo.svg

I am one of those guys who grew up watching the anime from the 1990s. Among those anime was Digimon. This show consumed my childhood. I enjoyed the battles between the various Digimon and how the Digimon Digivolved into new and more powerful forms. Throughout middle school, I even created my own imaginary Digimon and envisioned their battles. I even memorized the lyrics of one of the theme songs word for word. Now that I am older, I have a greater appreciation for the impact this anime had on my life. Due to my analytical nature, I came to notice a deeper feel for the story of the franchise. Each child in the show had social, spiritual, and psychological issues. Over time, the children overcame these limitations and grew as individuals. As they grow, the children’s Digimon partners acquire the power to Digivolve into more powerful forms. This concept of Digivolution is symbolic in the sense that the Digimon’s transformations reflect on their human partner’s growth and maturity. By the end of each season, the main characters learn important life lessons from their adventures in the Digital World. I would recommend this anime to anyone who likes monsters and coming of age stories.
