    I watched the first season till the end, abit of 2nd season, on and off on the rest, and then I forgot about it even exists, until gracenovamon appeared before me, i cant stop looking at that design, its unfathomable to think such an sexy design exists in a family of hideous creatures, the designs have improved alot lately though, it has made me fall in love with digimon ones more, again!

Makes sense too, since I saw 01 and 02 back to back as a kid and I recall seeing Tamers not too long afterwards, so I guess I didn't see it as early as everyone else lol, but on the flip side I did get to have World 1 and three seasons of the anime in quite the fast succession and then spent most of my childhood, and even life, replaying those PS1 games and then moving up to DS (I never did get any of the GBA games other than Battle Spirit 2, which had Frontier which didn't air in the UK so I was confused and didnt play it lol). I suppose it was beneficial I got to see them all in a row like that, as it did help me become more of a fan than waiting for years... I guess. It seems it was around April 2001 or so, as I specifically remember getting World 1 as a "easter gift", lol. and then my first play session, I got a Nanimon... and never got a Nanimon in world 1 again. Shame. Nice memories though, oh my absolute number one franchise that I have sunk waaaaay too many hours in.
    Actually met my fiance through mutual love of Digimon, so it's definitely been a big part of my life these past 20 years. Watched tri and Appmon for the first time with him and it was great. We're both looking forward to Last Evolution Kizuna.

    So my memory WAS right and it was around August. Ha ha
    I found it by pure accident by channel surfing and it was middle of the episode with Etemon vs Greymon and I got hooked. Thankfully Fox aired two episodes at a time during it's weekday programming after school. Caught the first three seasons on Fox and the fourth on UPN. Didn't see Data Squad or Fusion during its initial run since cable and internet weren't as available back then. Thankfully caught Data Squad on youtube (before it was removed) and Fusion on Netflix.
    Still have my Emperor's Last Sand VHS and Digimon the Movie DVD.
    Still have all my old transforming toys up until Fusion, along with all the plushies I've collected over the years. Found some old picture books recently and WOW are those screenshots bad. And sheesh it's like every year there's more reminders how old I am...
    You see I am simply...one Nox of a Nobody

    I remember seeing the commercials for this new series called Digimon and thinking this is nothing but a copy of Pokémon, I was about 9 years old. I never really had any intention of watching Digimon, until one of my family members got me a Digimon VHS tape by accident, I asked for a Pokémon VHS for Christmas. I guess it was pure coincidence how I got into Digimon. But the very first episode I did experiment with on Fox Kids was the episode where Matt and Joe were at the diner working for Vegimon, I remember thinking this is weird but it’s not that bad. After a while it became really easy to watch the episodes on Fox Kids in reruns, and very easy to keep up with. Pokémon episodes aired in pretty random order, while Digimon had a story that started from beginning to end. Half way through the Myotismon arc is when I think I got sucked into Digimon, and wanted all the cool toys and merchandise.

    I never watched it when it first aired, as i was just born XD. But a few years later, around 2007/08 i saw the original anime on vhs tapes at a friends house.
    I could not get enough, but luckily for me and my friend Data Squad just started airing a few weeks after haha
