September 11, 2012 – New York, New York – For the first time ever, all 54 episodes from the first season of the popular Anime television series are available on digital platforms and in the 8-disc collector’s set, THE OFFICIAL DIGIMON ADVENTURE SET: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. The boxed set, which includes the four story arcs of the classic DIGIMON series, is the official North American release and is licensed in partnership with Toei Animation.
While at summer camp, seven kids from Japan —Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi, Joe, and T.K.—come across seven Digivices and are transported to a strange dimension called the Digital World. In this new world, they make friends with digital creatures that call themselves Digimon—short for Digital Monsters—who were born to defend their world from various evil forces. The children learn they have the ability to help their new Digimon friends “digivolve” into stronger digital monsters and fight as a team to defend enemies and ultimately find their way home.
