Believe it or not, Digimon is officially 25 years old! The franchise is one of the most nostalgic ones in anime, but its popularity makes it a hard one to date. Like Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon is one of those ageless IPs that only gets better with time. But as of this week, well – Digimon has joined series like One Piece with its silver anniversary.
You can find just a few examples of Digimon tributes in the slides below as fans are taking time to celebrate the series however they can. After all, Digimon came into being when WiZ and Bandai released its first Digital Monster in June 1997. The toys, which were inspired by the hugely popular Tamagotchi virtual pets, hit the market with the hope of appealing to boys.
Since its release, the Digital Monsters line has sold upwards of 24 million units, and Digimon has gone on to spawn a broad thriving franchise. The series has inspired everything from anime series to films and video games. And with 25 years under its belt, Digimon will only have more goodies to unleash as the next couple of decades come to pass.
