A fictional group of digital beings who reside in a parallel universe know as "The Digital World." It was first born as a virtual pet that could be used in battles and raised to become various, stronger beings. The concept then took the path of its characters and evolved into an anime where-in seven youung kids go to camp for the summer and end up living in a digital land. Hey, Digimon, Hey, Digimon!
Unfortunently- America's crappiest dubbing companys grabbed digimon by the throat and ripped away all of its depth, making it into a crappy pokémon-wannabe. But the original Digimon Adventure in Japan is very deep with emotions running high and emo devils trying to take over the worlds.
"I watch Digimon in japanese because its better in its original format."
