Digimon Adventure Tri is the seventh anime series from the Digimon franchise but is actually the second sequel to the very first season. The original eight Digidestined children return for the second time, now older and perhaps wiser?
The new season is set three years after the 02 season, meaning the characters have aged up to six years. But the first series aired in 1999, almost 16 years go. Even if the youngest Digimon fan is in pre-school, those who watched the original series during their childhood are now all adults. Would they want to revisit and see how their beloved cartoon heroes have grown as well?
The Digimon Adventure characters are sure to reference the next generation of Digidestined from the second season but in the meantime, the original eight are listed below. Who was your favorite as a child? Will you change your mind after you see them now?
