Thread: How Would You Rank the "Adventure" Arcs?

    They aren't really in conflict. Plot, Character, and Setting are all interdependent expressions of the theme.

    But otherwise, yes, preferences vary between people.

    It's all part of the mystery or whatever.

    Let's see, 02 is clearly the worst because it has more BlackWarGreymons than any other season.

    Seriously though, I don't know what you're expecting in terms of some sort of 'quality criteria'.
    ding ding ding

    That's exactly my point.

    Some people in this thread very clearly believe that parts of 02 are objectively crappy compared to other parts.

    There is a such thing as an objective scale of quality (take that, pomo), but it isn't fine-grained enough for people to agree on anything in Digimon. Even most of the rubrics that people do come up with are mostly window dressing: for example, judging different parts of Digimon for their 'characterization' (which is neither a necessary nor sufficient condition for something good, anyway) is mostly a fancy way of saying 'I like these characters better.' There is a such thing as a story with deep and valuable insights into human psychologies, but Digimon isn't one by the wildest stretches of imagination.

    Similarly, 'this is bad writing' mostly just means 'I didn't like this arc', not that it is awful. There is a such thing as bad writing and good writing but the differences between parts of Digimon series, or even Digimon series, are not actually discernible in such a way that everyone would agree.

    This is in no particular order. But to start with, I think my real fav of Adventure seasons is:

    The Digimon Emperor arch is my favorite mostly because it's the one that makes me cry. Ken's whole story is pretty dark and tragic, but him and Wormon just never fail to bring tears to my eyes and a punch to my gut. And then the process of the group dealing with him after he's dethroned and all- oof. I loved it. And I could not get enough of Mummymon and Arukenimon's "relationship". That poor love struck dope, and her sheer disinterest. And then the big hit when Mummymon sacrifices himself.. woof. That's another gut punch. Kudos to those voice actors

    I like the Etemon arch cause I like me a good Rita Repulsa villain. A big ol' evil clown. And not like a Joker or Peidmon evil clown. I'm talking a goof-ball nere-do-well that's a real threat. There's too many sinister bad asses in villany with their simmering eeeeevil. Sometimes it's nice it have a threat with some pie jokes.

    I enjoyed the Myotismon arch, but I think I'm in the minority that isnt all that impressed by Myotismon. He was threatening and sho'nuff evil, but I was just way more enthralled with other villains. And it was cool to be back on Earth, and seeing what life was like on the kids' return. Plus I liked how we didnt waist -too- long on hiding the digimon from the parents. But I was glad to get back to the Digi-world. Loved the Dark Masters. -Loved- the concept of Spiral Mountain.

    Everything else, I loved for what it was. There was good character stuff all over. I dont have one that I hate. Just if I had one at the bottom, it would be Myotismon.

    I love the Etemon arc just because of how ridiculous Etemon is and literally no other reason.

    The arc I enjoyed the most is Myotismon arc... It is because all the children activate their crests and begin to maturete little by little but I feel MalomVamdemon's return in 02 somewhat ruined this arc but I'm okay with it though. Dark Masters arc is very well done given on how kids get separated again and they have to survive on their own. I really enjoyed it very much but it is also sad cause is the final arc of the series. Devimon arc is the one I disliked. It took 13 episodes to finish and it was a way too long which was not for my amuse... Etemon arc is ok.

    In 02 there is no such thing like ''best arc'' to me but what I enojoyed the most was Dark Seeds arc because Daemon and his fellows show up.

    Maybe I’m the only one but I always saw episode 14-26 as the server continent arc even if Myotismon takes over as big bad towards the end and episode 27-39 as the search for the 8th child arc. Anyways

    From favorite to least

    1. The eighth child arc- Even though I would have preferred trying to make it somewhat of a surprise who the eighth child was or at least better attempt at hiding who her Digimon partner was this was still the most exciting and suspenseful arc of the Adventure canon

    2. The Dark Masters arc- This arc did a great job showing how high the stakes have gotten. I do think Matt’s temporary turn to the dark side was a bit forced. I know 5th graders are stupid but come on

    3. The server contient arc- Etemon is a fun baddie. The build up to Tai activating his creat was well done and its a shame the rest weren’t done nearly as well. Episode 21 is gorgeous looking. And episode 25 is one of my favorite filler episodes. I do agree with Kaen its a bit forced thay Myotismon just waiting in the shadows sendinf his weakest minion when the kids are at their weakest and he could easily kill them when the only kid with a Digimon who could fully digivolve is mia.

    4. The Oikawa arc- Oikawa is an interesting villain and the children who willingly accept the dark seed to become smarter and better athletes was a cool idea but the Daemon corps trilogy dragged out and the Davis has no worries and being an airhead is his greatest strength was too much

    5. The Kaiser arc- At 21 episodes its the longest arc and it drags a bit. Still mostly fun.

    6. File Island arc- This one is the most repetitive and formulaic but I like that it gives each of the kids a focus episode

    7. Arachnemon arc- Could an arc be more obviously made up as it went along? Who is this mysterious woman is she the one behind what happened to Ken? Oh she’s just one half of a comedy routine. What’s going on with the destiny knows? Grrr Blackwagreymon’s questioning his existence we’ve never seen that BEFORE.

    Toei also considers Adventure to be four arcs from what I’ve seen, roughly following its cours.

    1-14: File Island
    15-28: Server Continent
    29-39: Japan
    40-54: Spiral Mountain

    That's interesting, could you provide a source?

    Okay, I've found one example, from the Digimon Adventure Memorial Book. Here's how it breaks the series down:

    File Island Arc (episodes 1-13)
    Server Continent Arc (episodes 14-28)
    Tokyo Arc (episodes 29-39)
    Final Battle Arc (episodes 40-54)
    Published books: Odd Lodgings, The Silent Garden & Darker Places, Collecting in Darkness & Other Stories
    Digimon Fan Fiction: The Call
    Card Games: Digimon Tactics and Shadow Stories [both in-progress]
