Digimon’s New Series Titled: Digimon Cross Wars

Previously revealed Shoutmon to be main character’s partner


As much flak as the English Frontier OP got, I still love it and it’s still my favorite out of all the Digimon OPs.

Can’t link as it auto embeds, and it doesn’t allow embeds, so click the little red arrow on the right and copy/paste the url.


I use to love Digimon back in the day. I don’t think I ever went past season 3 though. I loved how they each had their own crazy kid with the goggles…lol


Good, old Digimon. Back when the internet, virual reality, and cyberspace was hitting it’s peak. Not only in anime but in live action as well. Can never go wrong with it. They should make more of it today, I say.


Your wish is granted!

Digimon’s New Anime Titled & Dated: Digimon Cross Wars in July


I take it, no one but me read the second post.


I was trying to go easy on Tonka. Maybe your vid distracted him…lol


Nooo…not digimon. I meant the whole cross/virtual/cyberspace traveling thing in general in both anime (check on digigimon, now bring more Lain-esque stuff) and live action in general. Like back in the late 90’s/early 2k


Gotcha! Anyone remember that show on Fox, VR-5?


I do! I do!

Lori Singer & … oh what the… Michael Easton!!


Or Harsh Realm, also on Fox.

And VR Troopers on Fox’s kids block.


Good! I didn’t hallucinate those!


Dude, those were the poop. Harsh Realm was awesome, sucks it got cancelled way too early.
And VR Troopers was hilarious, and I’m still waiting for the DVD’s.


Season 1 > Season 2 > Season 3 > Season 4 > Season 5

If it weren’t for season 4’s great character development, it would be last.
