Digimon Reboot Shares First Episode Preview

Digimon might be capping off its 20th Anniversary celebration by saying goodbye to the original DigiDestined with Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, but not long after we'll be reunited with a much younger take on the original eight children with the full reboot TV anime series, Digimon Adventure:. Currently scheduled to premiere April 5th in Japan (with the official English language release of the series not yet confirmed as of this writing), this new series has a lot of older and newer fans interested in seeing where the franchise will go next with this reboot.

With the premiere of this new series inching closer every day, Digimon Adventure has shared a new preview of the reboot's first episode currently reported titled "Digital Crisis in Tokyo." As spotted by @JP_Excelsior on Twitter (and shared through Fuji TV), this first episode preview has some of the same footage from the debut trailer with a few new scenes added in to flesh out what's really going on.

While there are still a ton of mysteries as to what we can expect from this new series, Toei Animation has revealed the official synopsis as such, "2020 AD. Networks are now an integral part of human life. But humans are unaware that beyond the network an infinite world exists. The digital world. And the creatures called Digimon that live there... A large-scale network failure occurs in the Tokyo metropolitan area. A flickering signal or garbled screens are prevalent. The news report that it’s cyber terrorism.

The children meet their partner Digimon and embark on an unknown 'adventure!'"
