Digimon, Digital Monsters, Digimon were the champions, at least for a time. While some fans have looked at this franchise as a substandard Pokemon wannabe, those of us who know a lot better are aware of the series' greatness. Well, at least when it comes to anime, some of the video games and other forms of media, even some of the other anime could probably be better.

It seems like Toei Animation is aware of the resurgence this franchise has been on since the studio has announced a reboot of Digimon Adventure. That's right, just as the adventures of Taichi, Yamato, and the others were coming to an end with their upcoming movie, we are now getting a rebooted look at their earlier adventures, which is awesome.

Anime News Network confirmed that the Digimon Adventure reboot would be debuting in Japan this April. An official key image from Toei Animation and Bandai Namco has confirmed that the original cast will be returning, so fans who have missed Taichi, Yamato, Sora, Mimi, Joe, Koushiro, Takerui, and Kairi will be really happy. They also seem to be getting the exact same Digimon partners they got last time, though it looks like the cast might get some updated clothes.

No release date for a Western version of this Digimon Adventure reboot was announced, though we can probably expect one soon. Hopefully, the folks at Crunchyroll have this handled since a lot of fans are going to want to see this series, mostly to see if it holds up. Here is hoping we get some good animation.
