Top Five Digimon

Monday 7th November 2016

With the DVD release of the fantastic Digimon: Digital Monsters here at last, it's time for us to talk about the best Digimon. It would be too easy to include the DigiDestined's Digimon so we're not going to include them in this list and give ourselves a real challenge! So without further ado, here our are picks:



If you've seen Digimon, then Leomon is an unforgettable Digimon. Leomon is a heroic Digimon who wants to protect the digital world and has a strong sense of justice. He was also one of the DigiDestined's first allies after their arrival in the Digital World. Proving to be a great help and participating in one of the most memorable fights in the series, Leomon was a card I was happy to have in my Digimon trading card game deck.



Wizardmon becomes a fast ally with his powerful magic in the DigiDestined's fight against the vampiric Myotismon, and his relationship with Gatomon is lovely. As a child, Wizardmon was one of our all-time favourite Digimon and still is to this day.



MetalSeadramon is a badass. Not only is he the fastest underwater Digimon, but he's also able to hold his own on the ground and in the sky. All of the DigiDestined have been bested in battle by him and he proves to be one of their most fiercest opponents. Blue Eyes White Dragon eat your heart out!



LadyDevimon is a servant to Piedmon, another terrific Digimon, and proves her ruthlessness quite clearly in a fight against Angewomon and Kabuterimon, although it's mostly between the two female Digimon. Digimon: Digital Monsters has more than a few grand, intimidating villains that test the DigiDestined time and time again, and LadyDevimon is up there with the greatest of them.



Andromon is a pretty cool android Digimon that the DigiDestined run into not long before their fight with Piedmon, one of the strongest villains in the series. Andromon plays a vital role in helping them get to Piedmon and in their fight against him, helping the DigiDestined live to see another day. His design unsettled us a bit as children as he seems to have some exposed muscle underneath his android body, but his heart is as human as anybody's!


Digimon: Digital Monsters Season 1 and Season 2 are both out now on DVD.

Do you feel that we left out any Digimon who deserved a space on this list? If so, please let us know via Facebook and Twitter.

New Ghibli Film Announced

Suzuki’s swansong will be the ultimate in exclusivity
Rough artwork has been leaked of Studio Ghibi’s next film, announced as the ultimate in collectibles: a film released in a single print, with a guarantee of no DVD or Blu-ray release. Slated for release in one year’s time, Gertie the Dinosaur began with the most unlikely of inspirations for a much-loved children’s studio.

Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere

Andrew Osmond tries to make sense of Sunrise's mad new anime
As regular subscribers to Manga Entertainment’s podcast and twitter feed will know, there was some confusion about whether Sunrise’s new comedy-fantasy-action-fanservice series was called (deep breath) Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere or Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere. We’re calling it the former in the UK, although releases elsewhere have plumped for the “in” option. Either way, it sounds less weird and Escheresque once you know that Horizon is the name of a pivotal female character in the series. But it reflects the inescapable fact that Horizon is, well, confusing.
With plethora of live-action anime adaptations that are already out or in the works such as Parasyte, Death Note and Ghost in the Shell, it’s no surprise that studios are clamouring to get their hands on the next big live-action hit.


This Koko is no clown
Opening with a running fight down a freeway where anti-tank missiles and heavy vehicles are tossed around like party favours, the first episode never lets up, setting a standard that the show maintains throughout.

Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water

Andrew Osmond on an anime classic, available at last in the UK
Hideaki Anno takes on Captain Nemo and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, in an anime series that began as a proposal by Hayao Miyazaki... It's one of the best-love anime ever, and it's only now getting a UK Blu-ray release.


Jack Neighbour prepares you for life in Japan
Hopefully you found the first three offerings in last weeks part one informative and you’d had ample time to calm your nerves and research a new country to emigrate to. So without further hesitation, let's complete the list.
