I first watched this when I was 7 in 1999 and absolutely loved it. People have always compared Digimon to Pokemon but they are quite different. However, when it comes down to it I prefer Digimon.
It has taken years but they are finally releasing the original Digimon on DVD. If you are a fan it is well worth buying. They are the original English dubs digitally remastered. This volume contains the first 27 with the next 27 being released in November or December. I cannot wait.
My only criticism is that there are no extras. It is just a menu with the option to play all or select a particular episode. That being said I love Digimon and thoroughly enjoyed being able to relive my childhood.
