    Adventure 01 > Tamers > Adventure 02 for me.

    Frontier was. . . no. Just no.

    Looking back on it, I liked Tamers the best. . . but Adventure 01 is nostalgic.

    And fuck the distant finale.

    First, this is not the appropriate sub-forum to discuss this topic; the Konoha TV: Channel 12 forum, found here (http://www.narutoforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=11), is the place for such a topic.

    As for the actual subject of the thread, the traits that make a season of Digimon the "best" or "worst" are completely subjective, so I shall instead state which season are my favorite, which I actualyl have done before.

    The first season of Digimon, Digimon Adventure, is still my favorite, because it seemed to have one of the most epic plots and simply was something new at the time that I watched it. Plus, it had some of my favorite villains in the franchise (namely, Vamdemon and the Dark Masters).

    My second favorite season was season five, Digimon Savers, because of its departure from the art style and themes of the first several seasons. In this season, the main characters were much older than those of the previous seasons, even adults and parents had Digimon partners and went to the Digital World, and it also had the only genuinely evil human charatcer in a Digimon series thus far, Akihiro Kurata, who therefore is my favorite villain after Vamdemon.

    After those seasons, season three, Tamers, is my third favorite, and seasons two and four, Adventure 02 and Frontier, respectively, are my least favorite of the completed seasons. I liked Tamers because it was slightly darker and more dramatic than the first two seasons, but Savers better executed that idea in my mind, and Adventure 02 and Frontier were too similar to Adventure for them to be my favorites.

    The current season, Digimon Xros Wars, is still running, so I shall wait until it is finished to decide where it is among my favorite seasons, but it currently is tied with Digimon Savers for second place after Digimon Adventure.

    And if anyone is planning to re-watch these series, I absolutely recommend that you watch them in their original Japanese language with subtitles, as I found the English dubbed voices to be extremely poor in comparison to the originals, plus a great amount of content was censored from the series when they were brought over to the United States, a process of which I absolutely do not approve. Fansubs of the older series can be found around the internet, so I definitely believe that it is worth the time and effort that would be spent downloading them to see them in their original and uncensored form.

    Tamers was undderrated I'd say it was just as good as Adventure 01. I'd say Adventure 02 was my favorite season and Frontiers isn't as bad as the hate it gets.

    ^ I actually didn't mind Frontiers, looking back now. Didn't like it at first, but learned to appreciate the different approach they made.

    As for the best season, imho, Tamers, "worst", S2.

    I really liked that season. Its only downside would be around the introduction of the royal knights till they are defeated. It took a long time to resolve that to the point where it seemed to drag. Some plot points needed to be established such as the RKs absorbing the rest of the data and Empororgreymon and Magnagarurumon being inexperienced. But the rest felt like a waste of time. This lasted 10 episodes.

    A lot of things made it a close favourite. The 10 legendary warrior spirits, everything about them was awesome. The characters were cool. I enjoyed Takuya, Koji, and Koichi the most. This season had arguebly the best finale. Lucemon was presented as a great threat, and was dealt with appropriately(unlike ADV2s finale). The season also lacked partners. Some may see this as a negative point, but usually the kids are nothing more than being put at risk. Seriously, why don't most villains just try killing them instead of always treating them as sideline viewers. My main point is it was good to see the kids actually take control and fight for the cause. The season is pretty much digimon power rangers:zaru

    I could go on and on about why I hate ADV2 if not for Blackwargreymon.

    Ive heard that before, that it's lack of partners made it the worst. I also agree that towards the end it did kinda' drag on a bit. Another point I didn't like about this season was around the time Aldamon and Beowolfmon were introduced, it made the other characters pretty useless...

    Still my second favorite season though.:distracted

    I liked AD1. AD2 and Tamers. Frontier was okay, however Lucemon sure was awesome, specially his "Satan Mode", I believe that was how it was called.

    I have a big adoration for Frontier actually. It's a tie for my favourite, along with ADV1. The characters, especially Kouji and Koichi, had swell back-stories. I also like how they could transformed into Digimon, not just depend on their partners. I also like Kouji, he was kind of a bad-ass. Which is kind of rare in the Digimon universe, no? Grant there are others, but he stood out. I also liked the character developement. The theme was also the best opening for Digimon. The first 3 we're too repetitive. And the ones after Frontier we're something I couldn't watch for more than an episode

    I also loved Frontiers opening. Oh, and about moving this thread. The mods will move it if they feel it doesn't need to be here. No worries.

    Tamers was by far the best in terms of story, characters and badassery of the Digimon involved.

    Kids turning into Digimon didn't do it for me.

    That, and I didn't like a single character in Frontier. Not even one.

    Which really surprises me. That's pretty damn rare for me to dislike a story to that extreme of a degree.

    Tamers > Adventures01 > Adventures02 >= Frontier

    As said, kids turning into digimon was the wrong way to go imo...the designs were forgettable too.

    Mega level design was just a combination of champion and Ultimate...instead of something original...it became a blur of designs.

    Adventure 1 was beast, for obvious reasons. Adventure 2 was kinda just a follow up, but I did like the events that Ken brought to the story. Tamers, I didn't like. Rika was the only one I could even stand. Frontier was good because it was a change from the Digidestined having partners. I'm not eve going to talk about the trash that was Data Squad.

    You can contact a forum moderator, preferably by a private message (often shortened to "PM") and ask them to move it.

    I do not like the English dub openings for the Digimon series, as they were drastically different from the original Japanese openings and simply were not as well-written (at least in my mind). If you wish to hear theme songs that are "catchy," I strongly suggest that you listen to the original Japanese openings and ending songs, for they better capture the true essence of the series and their themes, or at least they do, in my mind.

    You did not like season five (whose proper name was Digimon Savers)? It was my favorite season after the first! I shall presume from the fact that you are using the English dub terms a the Digimon series. If that is true, I strongly suggest that you watch the entire series in its original Japanese language. Fansubs of Savers were being made long before it was licensed in the United States, so, I hope that you will forgive me for being rather curt, but you have no good excuse for not having seen the series in its original Japanese form. The Japanese versions have no censorship, far better voice acting (in my mind), and no stupid dialogue or poor attempts at humor inserted in nearly every scene. If you wish to watch these episodes, I can send you a link to the websites where they can be found by private message.
