The spring 2020 season saw the start of Digimon Adventure but the series was delayed significantly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With it underway again with new episodes, the property has now been brought over to Hulu for additional streaming as there’s likely a guarantee of a certain number of new episodes for a bit. The first four episodes are now available and the fifth episode is set to go live this coming weekend in Japan.
Crunchyroll has it as well for streaming for viewers in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Masato Mitsuka is on board as the series director with ATsuhiro Tomioka supervising the scripts. Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru is handling the character designs while Akihiro Asanuma is serving as the chief animation director with Toei Animation naturally handling the production.
Plot Concept: The new anime will take place in 2020 and will feature an all-new story centering on Taichi Yagami when he is in his fifth year in elementary school. His partner is Agumon. The story begins in Tokyo when a large-scale network malfunction occurs. Taichi is preparing for his weekend summer camping trip when the incident happens. Taichi’s mother and his younger sister Hikari get stuck on a train that won’t stop moving, and Taichi heads to Shibuya in order to help them. However, on his way there, he encounters a strange phenomenon and sweeps him up into the Digital World along with the other DigiDestined.
