Adventure, Data Squad, and Frontier are my favorites. Trying to hunt down a reasonably-priced Digivice IC or Mega Burst for my Agumon I bough a few years back, when Data Squad products were on store shelves.

I don't like Tamers because it took itself too seriously and was kinda too grim and gritty for its target audience. Zero Two was literally a repeat of Adventure, but with uncreative new main Digimon (he's a hawk digimon, lets call him "Hawkmon!" He has a V-shape on his head, lets call him "Veemon!", etc.)

I'll just repeat what I said in the other thread before it was locked.

Xros Wars was such a disappointment. It literally threw what made Digimon great out the window! I can't believe how much of a lack of character development there was. They put most of the main characters in life threatening situations and it was like "so? Am I suppose to care for them? We haven't known anything about them. They're generic!"

Eh? Unlike the other shows, it actually had a broader target audience, thanks largely to those elements. Unlike Digimon Adventure, which I can no longer enjoy thanks in large part to me being an adult, I can actually enjoy Tamers because it's more serious and gritier, and therefore more targeted towards my demographic.

Really? I just got Advenure Vol. 1 for Christmas and I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. To me the best shows are the ones that can appeal to both kids and adults without having to either "dumb itself down" or "be darker and more mature."

Like Pixar movies.

I used to like the Anime until they turned into the Digimon themselves. I like how the seasons blended together and incorporated old casts...Anyway I'm looking forward to a full 3D 3DS game some day.

Tamers was very well done. It went off in a different direction and pulled it off well, I loved it.

For me Digimon favorites probably go:
1. Digimon Adventure
2. Digimon Tamers
3. Digimon Adventure 02
Data Squad was ok and not as bad as people make it out to be. I really didn't like Digimon Frontier, and Xros Wars. Meh. It's mindless fun.

Why does Data Squad get a bad rep anyway? The most popular reason I've seen was that it had a more traditional bishonen anime style. Its primary target audience was 16-21 without it being a "hobby anime." Its a mature Digimon done right IMO.

I thought it was a fresh new look that worked well for the story (that I've seen so far, I've only seen the first 26 eps. released on DVD) and its not like the classic Digimon that showed up were changed or anything. Agumon returning as the main Digimon is a HUGE plus for me, also the fact that he had new Digivolutions was pretty cool as well.

The main cast is great and they all have a greater purpose other than being "that character." Also Commander Sampson is like the coolest adult in the franchise. The main villain Kurata is probably the most memorable villain since Cherubimon in Frontier. Probably one of the biggest reasons why I love Data Squad is that its premise is mainly about a... well squad, of people, who prevent Digimon from becoming known to the world. Its a nice new perspective that differed from kids simply going to the Digi World in season 1, 2, and 4 (kinda 3 too near the end) or the cliche government involvement that Tamers used.

Also the english theme song is so bad its good.

It grows on you. Trust me.

Like the original Power Rangers theme.

@CanisWolfred Also I wouldn't judge a show based soley on its theme song. If you told someone that Tamers was a more adult aimed show, would they believe you from the theme song? You know, the infamous Digimon theme? (Which I think is the best english anime opening ever, so catchy.)

I'll sound hypocritical by saying this, but I like the darker moments in Data Squad myself; the difference between it and Tamers are that at least with DS, it knows when to give the audience a break and have a laugh.

Digimon Tamers did that too. When it was appropriate. Which wasn't that often, especially towards the end. Believe me, you don't want there to be jokes when the show is trying to be sad or serious. It really ****s with the mood. Don't believe me? Watch Victory Gundam. Every attempt to lighten what is otherwise the most depressing show ever created doesn't screw with your head, well...I guess you're already crazy. O_o
