Digimon, Digital Monsters, Digimon Are The Grand Prize


Pokemon's more story-driven, mature cousin Digimon: Digital Monsters had a good run back in the late 90s and early aughts, but it never got much better than its second season where it got to take advantage of the pre-established world and just dive full in to the mythology. It managed to rise to the top of the still-increasing pile of monster battle cartoons that have been pouring into the states ever since Japan sent us Pokemon, and it also represents a fairly strong carton overall. If you're a fan or want to give the series a try, we've got one grand prize copy of the full second season as well as three runner-up prize copies of Digimon Adventure: Volume 2 (from the first season, they're essentially the episodes where the series starts to come into its own).

To find out how you can win, just keep reading.

The Official Digimon Adventure Set: The Complete Second Season is the direct sequel to Season 1, and takes place four years after the original series. Commonly referred to as Digimon Zero Two, it finds most of the original characters now in junior high school, with the Digital World supposedly secure and peaceful. However, a new evil has appeared in the form of the Digimon Emperor, a human just like the DigiDestined, who has been enslaving all Digimon. Four new children -- Davis, Yolei, Cody, and Ken -- are chosen and along with T.K. and Kari, make up the new generation of DigiDestined, charged with saving the Digital World. Together they journey back to the Digital World to battle the villainous Emperor and free all the Digital Monsters from his control. For the first time ever, THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is unleashed onto digital and DVD and will include all 50 exciting adventures never before released in North America. Fans of the series will also thrill to bonuses including a full-color 36-page character guide book and a gallery featuring more than 40 villain Digimon sketches.
