REVIEW: DIGIMON SEASON 2
OVERVIEW: In 1997, the Digimon franchise was launched, evolving from a popular digital toy to an adventure-packed feature film, multiple TV series and more. Fast forward 17 years and the Japanese retro creation has continued to build on its international popularity with over 100 global licensees and its first official U.S. DVD releases from Flatiron Film Company, a label of Cinedigm (NASDAQ:CIDM), in partnership with Toei Animation. THE OFFICIAL DIGIMON ADVENTURE SET: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON ($79.95srp), an 8-disc collection featuring all 50 complete, unedited episodes and DIGIMON ADVENTURE: VOLUME 2 ($19.95srp), a specially-priced 3-disc set including 18 full-length episodes from Season 1, follow the first Flatiron releases in 2012. Both sets are the English versions from the U.S. broadcast and will be available to the far-reaching fan-base and new generation of viewers on March 26, 2013.
For the uninitiated, there are five complete seasons in the Digimon Franchise (not including the sixth, soon to launch as "Digimon Fusion" on Nickelodeon later in 2013), but fans consider Seasons 1 & 2 to be the original, classic episodes. It is these episodes that have never been officially released in the U.S. until Flatiron unleashed them in all their digital glory. Season 1 found seven kids who, while at summer camp, discover seven "Digivices" which transported them to a strange digital world. It's here that these "DigiDestined" befriended Digimon -- short for Digital Monsters -- who were born to defend their world from various evil forces. After learning they have the ability to help their new Digimon friends "digivolve" into different monsters and fight as a team, the kids form a pact and hope the digi beings can ultimately help them find their way home.
SYNOPSIS: Four years after Tai, Mimi and the rest of the DigiDestined brought peace to the digital world and found their way back home, the Digimon Emperor–a new villain–threatens the world and its Digital Monsters. With some the original kids off to junior high, a new generation is chosen to defend and save the world from evil..
Davis, Yolei, Cody, and Ken join T.K and Kari to form the new Digidestined team. Together they journey back to the Digital World to battle the Digimon Emperor and free all the Digital Monsters from his control..
For the first time ever DIGIMON ADVENTURE SEASON 02 (the direct sequel to Digimon Adventure Season 01) is available in an 8-disc official collector’s set, complete with all 50 episodes!
