The director oversaw the hit collection because it adopted Tai and his buddies on all types of missions. It seems he labored with Digimon Survive‘s Habu Kazumasa on the upcoming title, and the producer mentioned Kakudo spoke to him overtly about the place Digimon actually come from.
According to Kazumasa, the anime director would not consider Digimon are born from expertise. Rather, they’re one thing which were round for hundreds of years, they usually merely use expertise to manifest earlier than mankind.
“I had several conversations with the director of the anime series Digimon Adventure, Hiroyuki Kakudo. We talked a lot about what Digimon are, and Kakudo-sensei’s understanding of Digimon is that they’re more of a spiritual being instead of digital. For people who played with the Virtual Pet, they understand Digimon only exist in the digital world so they’re basically some kind of data. However, Kakudo-sensei believes these Digimon – these monsters have always been there,” he shared.
“They have been around human beings in a more spiritual sense. It’s not just like a data thing. So based on that, Kakudo-sensei thinks Digimon have always been their partners so they have a big bond and interact with each other a lot.”

The monsters grew to become simpler to contact with expertise, however they’ve been round far longer than anybody has identified.
