FEATURE: Fanart Friday - Digital World Edition

Take a walk with me down memory lane and revisit the Digital World just in time for Digimon Adventure tri!

Fanart Friday returns, and today I'll be your guide to revisit the adventure a lot of us started 15 years ago. Last week, we celebrated Mother's Day with fanart galore of the sweetest fictional moms we know and love. Let us then get lost in the Digital Art World of today's edition!

 

 

Digimon Adventure was created by Akiyoshi Hongo and produced by Toei Animation in partnership with Bandai and Fuji TV. The series' first installment ran for 54 episodes and its first episode aired in Japan on March 7th of 1999 and has since spawned several sequels, spin-offs, videogames and movies.

 

We are going back. Are you coming?

It was about confronting evil... (I am not the only one who thinks of Katekyo Hitman Reborn! when looking at this image, right?!)

If there was ever characters in Digimon that had a legendary feel to them, Angemon and Angewomon take the spot for me. Divine virtue at the vanguard of the Digimons! (Trivia time! Did you guys know that the characters in the ribbons read "Dejitaru Monsutaa (Digital Monster)"?! I sure did not!)

In Digimon Tamers, Terriermon was always my favourite!

And while Beelzemon was seen as the bad guy...

...I think we can all agree his redemption was one of the best in the Digimon series.

Digimon Tamers was a refreshing change for the series and remains in my top three.

Digimon Frontier aired in Japan in Spring of 2002 and while it's not my favourite Digimon series, it takes the second spot, losing to Digimon Adventure.

The fact that the whole series revolved in DigiDestined assuming Digimon forms was great. Character design for this installment is excellent! Agunimon looking good~

Takuya's beast form was something else, I remember jumping out of my couch with excitement! BurningGreymon and Takuya in the picture.

Fairymon always passed this sense of happiness and freedom that remains strong, even in fanarts. I wonder how she relates to Lillymon?

I loved how they incorporated another set of wings in Izumi's (Zoe's) beast form.

Googles have always been a characteristic detail of anime & manga protagonists in Japan. Can you spot the odd one out, though?!
