Not as good as the original
Being a big fan of the first series of Digimon, and then the second, involving all new kids, I thought this show would be great. But I was very disapointed. The show as a whole is lacking. For starters the voices of some of the characters are not too convincing. The human characters are much harder to warm to, one being completely cold hearted, another is just plain dull and the third annoying, although the bad guy does have potential. The Digimon themselves seem wrong. They appear to be more closely related to the first set of Pokemon, or the monsters in Monster Rancher, they are far to humanoid in appearence or not strange enough. It is as if the artists could not be bothered to use their imagination any more after blowing a few cogs on the first two series. The plot is very repetetive and dull, the writers take far too long to explain anything in the story line, there are odds and ends just left floating.
I would suggest giving this show a try if you are a fan of Digimon or Pokemon and all the modern anime, but it is not at all impressive.
