For children born in the 90s, you must be familiar with Digimon. An anime series that was very popular in its time. It has also been broadcast on national television. Even in the past for me Digimon was a rival to Pokemon. But still I like both. When the news of the Digimon anime series being made a 2020 version, I was surprised. Why? Even though the anime is timeless. Still very easy to enjoy. After watching the first two episodes of the Digimon Adventure 2020 anime, it was revealed that this anime still uses the original characters, but with a new plot.
In the first episode, the story is directed to resemble the original series, Taichi is getting ready to go on summer vacation (if I’m not mistaken, yes). The storyline was then taken in a new direction.
Problems don’t arise when Taichi and his friends go on vacation together, but before that. There is an attack of a mysterious digital creature that causes chaos throughout Japan.
Anime Digimon Adventure 2020 presents a story where our main characters engage in battles against evil digital monsters without being trapped in the digital world. It’s true that Taichi moved worlds too, but it looks like he will be able to go back and forth between the digital-real world, unlike the original series.
In essence, Digimon Adventure 2020 presents our main character in a new story.
For the animation, it will definitely be much better than the old series. The name is also a new anime. However, it still exceeded expectations.
The animation is flexible. Greymon’s movement against the enemy runs nimbly. In addition, the use of CG or 3-dimensional images in each episode is also smooth to blend with the two-dimensional images.
The quality of this animation is quite surprising because Digimon Adventure 2020 is produced by Toei Animation which is already famous for showing relatively rigid animations, for example World Trigger, Gegege no Kitaro, and also One Piece, unlike other hit anime released by other animation studios.

Don’t get me wrong, I really like Toei’s anime because even though a lot of the animation is stiff, it’s still very fun to watch. Different from hit anime like Tokyo Ghoul: re.
What is somewhat lacking from this latest Digimon Adventure anime is that the main character’s purpose is still unclear. From the first two episodes, what we only know is that Taichi is brought into the digital world to fight against digital monsters that are disrupting. Who is the mastermind is still unclear, and Taichi’s goal is also unclear, other than defeating the enemy.
In the original anime, we immediately knew what Taichi and his friends’ goals were, which was to find a way out of the digital world while saving digital monsters from the clutches of criminals. With the main character’s goal, we become more curious to follow each episode. Hopefully in the next episode we will know what the purpose of this story is.

It’s really fun to enjoy stories that can create nostalgic feelings about the past, especially the good old days where we never thought about work, money, or adult obligations.
But Digimon Adventure 2020 doesn’t just make nostalgia its main weapon. This new adaptation seeks to give fans something new. And so far quite successful.
