The first episode proved pretty good.
25 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first episode of Digimon introduces us to these "digital monsters" and how they work. It works well and settled me into the Digimon series.

This being the first episode of the Digimon series means it is very important. The pilot episode is the key episode that will help you decide whether or not you will continue to like the series. The episode does very well at describing what this series is about and is presented very well.

The main characters are introduced and it tells the story of them at a summer camp. For some reason things go wrong and the climate starts to change. It starts to snow - in the middle of the summer? I like how this tells us how these kids are going to be part of a different world.

When the kids come back into this "new land" they don't recognise a single thing near them. The landscape has changed and there are some cute monsters too. At first everyone seems a bit scared of these monsters but not long after they soon settle in. The digital monsters are introduced like the main characters were. So, we learn about them and what they can do.

There powers are shown off when an evil enemy confronts the kids. With nothing else to do the Digimon must use their powers to defeat it.

Towards the end we are left at a cliffhanger. I like how this episode ended because of this. It sure wanted me to continue watching the series. Great pilot episode!
