Digimon Adventure has celebrated its major 20th Anniversary with the release of a brand new TV anime series re-imagining the events of the original season from two decades ago. The debut episode of this new series was met with high praise as it injected a high amount of energy into the nostalgic imagery, so there was a huge amount of hype for the new series' second episode. But this second episode certainly took many fans by surprise by showing just how much it's going to change things from the original series with the return of the fan-favorite Mega Evolution fusion, Omnimon.
This was undoubtedly a major moment for fans to see in the reboot, but it was doubly as surprising considering that Omnimon was an evolution built up to through months of the TV series and feature film release. By breaking this chain of evolutions from the original series, this new reboot has catapulted us into unknown territory.
Read on to see what fans are saying about Omnimon's early return to the series in the second episode, and let us know your thoughts in the comments! You can also hit me up directly about all things anime and other cool things @Valdezology on Twitter!

"Not Really Sure How I Feel"
I'm not really sure how I feel about Omnimon being brought in so early. The feathers both Kari & TK got reminds me of when they got Wargreymon & Metalgarurumon using the light arrows in the original series, both power-ups caused by their sibling's holy power.#Digimon #デジモン pic.twitter.com/ZWAENqn5Z2— Joshua Chiu (@JoshuaChiu1993) April 12, 2020

2020 is Wild
It is the year 2000. I play a shitload of Final Fantasy VII, then watch Digimon. Omnimon is hype as fuck.

A 'Huh' Moment

They just jumped from Champion, skipped Ultimate and went straight to Mega hella fast!
"This is Not a Real Show Anymore"
Digimon Adventure 2020 has Omnimon in the second episode...with none of the emotional weight of his original appearance just to check that nostalgia box. Should have named it Digimon Heroes after DB, because this is not a real show anymore. It's a joke.— Cody T. (@cctay75) April 13, 2020
