Digimon Frontier is a Japanese anime that first started airing in 2002 and is the fourth season of the Digimon series.
Why It Sucks
- A ton of unlikable characters, and their personalities are reused from Digimon Adventure.
- Takuya is basically Tai but he acts before thinking.
- Koji is basically Matt but more edgy.
- Tommy is basically T.K. but more whiny and spoiled. Unlike him, Tommy is also nothing more than another bullied kid, which is lazy.
- Zoe is basically Sora but more of a cliched kindhearted-girl stereotype.
- JP is basically Izzy and another fat supporting character, who doesn't give up on conquesting Zoe's heart.
- Koichi, even though he is the only likable character is basically Ken.
- Yutaka is also unlikable even though he wants Tommy to learn that Tommy can't be a spoiled brat.
- Zoe/Kazemon's attack "Love Tap" is basically a booty bump. Not to mention, she lost in the episode "Kazemon Kicks It"!, making it very insulting.
- What's probably the main reason as to why this show has been disliked is that unlike the previous Digimon shows, the main human characters don't use their Digimon partners to battle, but instead they turn into Digimon warriors, the concept, while not bad, was poorly executed.
- The dubbing is so bad that it officially made fans consider Toei to be the spiritual successor to 4Kids Entertainment's One Piece dub (depending on your point of view).
- The two Digimon partners that travel with the main human characters are basic comic relief characters that don't add anything to the show.
- Some scenes are too inappropriate in the original Japanese version, despite the anime being made for kids, examples would be too many sex jokes, violence, and swearing, due to Japan featuring less censorship in their shows.
- This is most appertain in episode 15, where Zoe is about to undress herself to change into her swimsuit, if you look very closely at the scene were Zoe is about to remove her tank-top, you can see part of her breast.
- There are also many writing choices that is also too inappropriate, even for anime standers, one of the most noticeable (and most infamous) example is in the episode when Ranamon (one of the main villains) captures Zoe, JP and Tommy, she torturers them by tickling them with feathers to get answers, and at one point during this, she tickles Zoe's exposed navel! And even more infamously, the camera does a ZOOM-IN on Zoe's exposed navel during that part! No, where not joking, that actually does happen.
- To add even more insult, Koji manages to find the three being tortured by Ranamon, but he just stands there like a moron, and doesn't even help out JP, Tommy and Zoe until AFTER Ranamon is done torturing them in a few minutes, making this very anticlimactic.
- The whole anime forces A LOT of lesson learning morals that don't fit well in a Digimon show.
- It feels more like a basic action anime show or an Anime version of Super Sentai/Power Rangers, nothing feels like Digimon had it not been for the title, the Digimon characters or the two Digimon partners traveling with them.
- The transformation scenes are at least amazing to look at.
- Some fans of Digimon might enjoy it.
- The character designs of both the humans and Digimon still look awesome like in previous seasons.
- The animation is great.
- The theme song is epic.
- Some of the characters get character development as the show progressives.
- Takuya becomes more trusting.
- Koji is more friendly.
- Tommy got some character development and learns to be independent, he even helps Takuya.
- Zoe becomes more helpful.
- J.P. is more mature.
