Coming Soon: 50 Reasons Digimon Series 2 Sucked
Ice King, Adventure Time
Digimon is probably the first actual anime series I ever watched many years ago. I've never had cable or satelite, so I had to make do with what was on local stations. Pokemon was popular, but I never got to see the show because the station that aired it was not available in my area.

The first series of Digimon, Digimon Adventure, was the show I had to wake up early to watch. The arcs kept a kid on the edge of his seat and the development of the characters was interesting to watch. I would talk to my friends who also watched it and we would talk about what direction the series would go and so forth.

When I heard there were more episodes coming out that was going to continue the storyline of the first series, I was ecstatic. I remember the morning the first episode was going to premier and was hoping for more awesome adventures. What I got instead was a slight slap in the face and a weekly punishment of new episodes of series 2.

After this series, I more or less gave up on Digimon. I saw a few episodes of Tamers, but my vision of Digimon was ruined because of the second series.

Recently, I rewatched both the first and second series as well as Tamers and in my opinion, Tamers and Adventure 1 constantly struggle as my favorite series of Digimon while Adventure 02 remains a distant third. I have not seen the fourth, fifth, or the currently airing sixth series, but just the descriptions of those turn me off. But I am sure if I were to watch them, I may rank some of them higher than Adventure 02.

So in honor of the 10 year anniversary of Adventure 02, I am going to do probably an audioblog series explaining my top 50 gripes with the series. I have the list and tried my best not to make it about translation errors or dubbing issues, but with the actual plot of the series. Some of them may seem nitpicky, but all of these problems aggravated the youngster inside of me. So I hope you look forward to this series, coming to this blog, soon!
