Digimon Series Watch Order Guide

On the 7th of March 1999, the very first show of Digimon Adventure premiered on Fuji TV in Japan. The premiere took place just a week after the short with the same name also had its premiere. 

Since then, Toei Animation and Akiyoshi Hongo have produced a total of eight animation series (with one currently on air on TV in Japan) along with 12 movies (with one being a set consisting of six films). 

Due to the honor of the franchise and the numerous works that are available, many people wonder what’s the best Digimon order to watch the entire series. That is the reason we decided to provide you with this ultimate order to watch every anime film and series.

The fans of the series will have been through all of the films in the sequence in which they were published, but there’s an abundance of information that you could get confused about even if you’re not interested in the entire series. 

In addition, the majority of material that was released later was part of earlier series, and that’s why we’ve taken the initiative to clear everything up. 

This guide will provide all the essential information including a complete episode schedule and a complete list of all relevant material that includes the anime films, series, and OVAs.
