There are three main factors that make Digimon Tamers the perfect kid's show that still appeals to older audiences:
-Relatable and fleshed-out characters. The three main leads, Takato, Rika, and Henry, all have distinct personalities that can easily become iconic to fans of the show, but are also more flawed, nuanced, and developed than most shows period, made for kids or not. While each one is dealing with their high-stakes Digital adventure (compelling enough to make a good show by itself), their personal life and all the conflict that comes with it doesn't go away. This creates a lot of character drama that can be deeply appreciated by an older audience without detracting from the epic Digimon quest or the simple Shy Guy/Tough Girl/Cool Guy trio that kids love. In fact, because the characters all have problems that kids can relate to, this helps them resonate more with the intended audience, and watching the characters work through their problems can be both helpful and comforting to kids. And all of this is accomplished without being preachy or devolving into Pokémon-style "lesson of the week" episodes.
-The Digimon. This series has some of the fandom's favorite Digimon among the main cast, including Guilmon, Renamon, Terriermon, Impmon, and Calumon. They range from cute to awesome, sometimes with the same Digimon, as is the case with Guilmon.Read more ›
"Digimon Tamers" is the official third season of the Digimon franchise. When it originally debuted in 2001, there was some resistance from fans. Introducing a whole new cast, many were a bit underwhelmed by the early episodes. What soon becomes clear, however, is that the tone of the piece is also quite different from its predecessors. The longer the season progressed, the more it was understood and embraced. Taking its time to develop characters, this is a calmer and somewhat more mature look at the Digimon world. At times, it's darker and more realistic. It has a slow build appeal that leads to a finale with real emotional resonance. Trust me, you'll be surprised by the impact that this has!
DVD Details: The presentation of all 51 episodes of Season Three are loaded onto eight DVDs that run about eighteen hours in total. These are the English language versions that were initially broadcast here in the states.Read more ›
Edit: Eh, they "Fixed" the editorial review. It's still not quite right... but its a whole hell of a lot closer than "Trainers catch creatures to battle them against rival trainers."
- It's just an awesome season to begin with.
- The digimon are way cooler (even the rookie forms were kick-a)
- The characters are actually likable, and they have more complex personalities.
- It doesn't have the stupid puns, and this show still has its funny moments (gotta love Terriermon)
- At the same time, this season has its very serious and dark moments.
- The life lessons that come with the show. Example: The saddest people around are most likely hiding their feelings behind a huge smile.
This has to be my favorite season so far (I have yet to watch the other seasons), so when I saw that Tamers was going to be released on DVD, I had to get it. I know I'm being nitpicky but I didn't like that it had the rating square in the beginning of some of the episodes; it made me feel like I was watching it straight from the TV, not watching a DVD.
By the way, the cover/shell thing is really shiny.

I'm curious too, all I can think of is that both sets that I've gotten, an initial purchase and a replacement, have had a problem with the last scene of episode 29 in which leomon's text gets slightly garbled. since it's on both copies I've recieved maybe it's just poor transfers.
