I was going into this with a lot of hope that it was going to be a lot better written than Digimon Adventure: 2020 was. I didn't mind watching it, which was purely because of them leeching on my happy memories from watching Digimon when I was a kid. But I do have a couple of big remarks towards them for not really giving us what we usually get with a Digimon story.
However, they have been getting a lot of things right here with the first episode. This is something for children, but I thought it was pretty gruesome in the first episode. This was to introduce us to whatever world we are in right now. They've got 7G people, so if that doesn't make you afraid, then what happens in the episode will. In the first couple of minutes they established the world. Lots of digital stuff, how can it be? But also a lot of holograms already. Once seeing the Sewn-Lip Man appear it got me a little bit off, but seeing him attacking a girl and stealing her time...That was brutal! Gotta be honest, it was kind of creepy, especially putting myself in the shoes of someone younger, I would think this is creepy if I was target audience. Very well done.
Then the Main Character got introduced to us. Hiro is his name, his last name is very long. So I'm not going to try and spell that out every single time. I thought he was kind of a curious kid. They also already have a comedic character, who reminds me of Joe from the original, but he's going to be a Digidestined as well. His dad just up and dissappears, but for some reason Hiro isn't really faced by this. I hope this gets explored later on.
Meeting the digimon was a very cute thing. Gammamon is a very cute digimon, who can be very powerful and it seems like Hiro's dad is going to be the one who brings information to them as time passes. The first fight between Gammamon & Clockmon was very nicely done. The bond between Hiro & Gammamon is going to be very cool to see develop. Seeing as how much power he gives him also gives him new attacks. Kind off like the Pokémon mechanism. I wonder how they will get the other Digidestined involved. I'm always for a much smaller cast, so I'm happy that it seems to be the case with this one. The first episode was very good, hopefully they can keep it up.
