Think back to the late 90's/early 2000's. If you were a young kid just getting into the anime fandom like I was, chances are you can remember one of the greatest fandom wars of all time – Pokemon V.S. Digimon. Both shows became instant hits with kids of all ages, and both are among the very few anime titles to actually have seeped even slightly into the mainstream. Sadly though, as time went on, and more and more shows were seeing slight and/or full DVD releases, only Pokemon continued to get major attention between the two, and Digimon became one of those shows that we all remembered fondly, but had no legal access to.
That time is over now. Rejoice, my fellow Digimon fans – our wish has finally been granted. After years of anticipation, and seeing our favorite franchise stagnate in the States, becoming a slow trickle of sub-par video game releases and only short television runs, New Video has stepped forward as our savior and released 'The Official First Season' of Digimon on DVD.
