ABCs of Nostalgic Digimon: N is For…

The seasons of Digimon that I have the most nostalgia for are 02 and Frontier, so a Digimon that appears in both really brings out the nostalgia.

N is For…


nostalgic digimon Nefertimon

Nefertimon, the angel of light!

The first few episodes of 02 aired when I, for some reason, was unable to watch them, so my parents recorded them and I had it on VHS. For memory, the only ones that successfully recorded were episodes 2 and 3, or, at least those are the ones I remember watching over and over again. Seeing Tailmon have a new evolution was exciting, I was hoping that the other Adventure kids would get evolutions too!

Then, of course, there were the Tazos that were released around the same time of 02’s original airing. I remember my first few DigiFx and DigiClix being Nefertimon – I think I was inundated with copies of Nefertimon too, if I recall correctly.

I have so many memories about collecting the DigiFx and DigiClix – both as a child originally, and then when I was in my early twenties when I decided to complete both collections – at least I already had Nefertimon for both collections!

In addition, I have a really strong memory of being at my Grandparents over night as my parents were away with work for one of the only times they ever went somewhere without me.

I remember waking up in the morning and catching an episode of Digimon Frontier – however, the only reason I remember it being Frontier was because it was about Nefertimon and a library.

I didn’t actually watch a lot of Frontier as a kid because it moved to a really inconvenient time slot, so it was probably one of the few Frontier episodes that I watched as a kid.

So why is there so much nostalgia for Frontier if I didn’t even watch it? Well, as mentioned in my Nostalgic Digimon Kerpymon post, the D-Tector Digivice was a much loved and played with toy.

The Digivice toys in general were one of my favourite things – I really felt immersed in the world of Digimon and loved playing with these releases ever since I received a D3 as a Christmas present one year.

The English D3 Digivice toy, getting back to the topic of Nefertimon, had Tailmon both as a child level AND an adult level – her child level was Gatomon and then Gatomon would stand up to be…Gatomon’s adult level. I will never understand this considering the Digivice toy release had Plotmon.
I hear it’s meant to be holy ring vs no holy ring, but I’m not so sure on that.

In short, whenever I was using Tailmon on the D3, I would use Nefertimon just because the Gatomon standing up sprite freaked me out too much.

So who is the most nostalgic Digimon that starts with the letter ‘N’ in your opinion? Let us know!
