Digimon Classroom is back for episode 3 (the prior episode apparently isn't considered number 3, but rather a standalone.) This time they introduce the digital world.

The Digimon Teacher, Gachos, and Kyotin go over some basic details about the digital world.


Then also go over the second series of Digimon Adventure: gummy snacks and the stickers included with them.



A few screenshots...

Huh, it's really curious that they even bother to mention the topic of who made and for what purpose does Digital World exists. It makes me wonder if the anime will also got into that (though I really doubt they will).

I wish I understood Japanese. Myself I like the Cross Wars explanation that the Digital World is its own universe and not tied to our worlds internet.

That’s also the explanation in CyberSleuth and Survive and apparently the canon stance on it.

and Habu also said it was the case for Adventure and that Kakaudo told him that.

Yeah, but Demon’s profile still outright states that the Digital World and Digimon were created by humans. So it’s not like Tamers invented the concept.

It's the canon stance for *some* Digimon media. As has been mentioned, Digimon Reference Book profiles mention that the Digital World is man-made, and that was, to the best of my knowledge, the idea when the original V-Pets came out.

I personally don't like the version where the Digital World pre-existed human technology. It's not a bad rationale--it certainly has its merits--but I prefer what I think are the (slightly) less 'mystical' explanations for the existence of Digimon and the Digital World. Makes it stand out to me a little from other monster franchises.

The official site uses the wording "discovered in the Computer Network in 1997.", rather than "created in 1997". so that implies they existed for however long and were eventually found by humans. "discovered" also means means they weren't created by humans, humans "discovered" them.

That doesn't necessarily follow. Digimon could have arisen from human data without humans being aware of it.

Correct, Digimon themselves were discovered on the net. However, the official site implies that the Digital World was an artificial creation, although the identity and purpose of its creator(s) haven't been "clarified".

absolutely this.
I am cool with the other world concept as it’s Digimon, having different universal rules per media is part of the fun; but I do not want that as the status quo like Habu and such are trying to push. This might be an out there take for those developers but I would like if my Digital Monsters come from a digital origin. Humorously, despite Habu and company using this to make his stories fit in better with Adventure, the 2020 Adventure: reboot seems to go with the original concept with its digital particle effect oceans in the Digital World and emphasis on the internet. To be very honest, the Adventure Digital World Digidestined pandering felt so forced on Cyber Sleuth's plot that felt like it was going for the opposite real world technological Tamers take in every other area and thar really ruined it for me, it's a lot of the reason I like Hacker's Memory better

Guess we found one great thing Adventure: did right, LOL.

Not that I'm hating on the series mind you, just that the negativity surrounding you-know-who showing up for the 2nd time has honestly been scaring me. But that's for another topic.

Anyways, I certainly look forward to seeing how the Digital World through Habu's and Toei's take will pan out.
