After reading all five of the manga series of the first season of Digimon (and being very pleased of how true it stayed to the Anime) I didn't hesitate when it came to buying this.
- First of all, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who isn't a fan or hasn't seen the second series of Digimon, the story will get confusing. Even I, who has recently watched the series again got slightly confused - they seemed to have cut out a few fairly large, important chunks of the story out (the discovery of each of the eggs, Ken's depression etc). It just seems a little rushed for the whole series to be squashed into two volumes (which really isn't enough), and this is noticeable.
- Secondly, where are the original Digidestined? Tai and Izzy appear in the manga, but they seem to be missing Matt, Joe, Sora and Mimi. Not only that, they don't even get mentioned, not even once!
They have pretty much stayed true to the character's personalities, apart from Daisuke 'Davis' who has seemed to have picked up some sort of 'gangster' slang, which can and probably will get on your nerves. Also, Tai has appeared to have acquired telekinetic powers (I really don't understand how he seemed to know about Ken's late brother Sam? I won't spoil it just incase you do decide to have a read). But the rest of the characters are fine.
Being a big fan of the Digimon series and the mangas I personally have found this book a little disappointing. It is fairly enjoyable if you have watched the show, but if not, I'd probably give it a miss. I have ordered the second volume just to see if it has improved and it should be here any day now. I'll let you know my thoughts.
Yes, I just ordered this manga, read it, jotted stuff down in it just like Volume 2, and must say... well, it's better than the second. I think.
Let me explain, once more.
Yah, it's true, the 02 story does lose quite a bit, and Daisuke's language can really, REALLY bug you at times (don't get me started...). Other things? Gladly. Taichi (Tai) seems to have psychic abilities, coming out of nowhere, ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE, and telling Daisuke and the kids (Yolei/Miyako, etc...) about Ken's brother's tragic death and whatnot. How does that work? I HAVE NO IDEA! It really bugs me. *__*
I might as well say some good stuff. I think the soccer scene has translated/been drawn well. It's cool. All their expressions are amazingly cute, even Kai-kun (Ken/evil Ken). I mean that.
So... like I said in the V.2 review:
A) read it if you don't care about pacing and
B) Two volumes, and Kai-kun-sama's only in four chapters...Taichi has psychic powers... TWO?! @__@ AAAAAAHHH! (goes on screaming for fifteen minutes)
...It's good. Really. Just kiss good pacing goodbye.
