Digimon might have touted that its next big 20th Anniversary film would be ending the story of the original DigiDestined with Last Evolution Kizuna, but Toei Animation surprised all when it revealed that the next full series in the franchise would actually be revisiting the original Digimon Adventure story. But rather than follow the stories of the older versions of the chosen children seen in the films, this new series will be retooling the original anime series. Following a younger version of Tai and the other DigiDestined than seen in the first anime, the franchise is getting a full on reboot.
This announced has led to an also surprisingly mixed response from dedicated fans of the franchise. While many are excited to see new adventures from one of the most popular (and recognizable) iterations of the anime franchise, there are just as many who aren't happy with another retread of Digimon Adventure.
Some are asking why other seasons aren't getting the same love, some are wondering what will change with the new series, but while there's a divide, it seems that everyone is excited to see what the new anime series has in store. Read on to see what fans are saying about the Digimon Adventure reboot, and let us know your thoughts in the comments! You can also reach out to me directly @Valdezology on Twitter!
