Recap, More Like..Recrap: The Best, Dullest, and Worst episode of Digimon Universe Appli Monsters

When Digimon Universe Appli Monsters was first announced I was pessimistic to say the least; the show seemed so different from the Digimon series that I loved as a child and the concept just seemed so dumb and ‘Quick! We need to keep up with YoKai Watch!’. However, from the first episode Appmon surprised and interested me, despite me being not the target demographic. The show quickly captured my heart very quickly with not only a clever and, at times, meta, plot, but endearing and unique characters that made me care from them even if, in Astra’s case, I hated them initially. Appmon really brings you back to the feeling you had when you first sat down to watch Digimon.

Cool Digimon arrivals for October 17th

I also had a few more arrivals besides the Kokeshi Doll Rubber Straps previously discussed. 

First up we have some Appmon chips. I’m trying to complete my collection of Appmon chips. It’s really hard. 
Also pictured is a guide for the Digimon Championship DS Game. It’s one of my favourite Digimon games because it’s just so different. It also has Dracomon. I love Dracomon. 

Next up we have the Digimon Adventure manga books. They’re basically just cinemanga. I’m not sure if there are any others available. The first four cover the file island arc and the second two cover the Etemon arc.
I’ve never seen any Vamdemon or Dark Masters arc ones. It seems to just finish with Taichi returning to the real world like at the end of the Etemon arc. I’m not even sure if any continuation from there exists. 

Next is a new OUTDOOR bag! I previously discussed the Digimon OUTDOOR tote and backpack on this blog but now I have another one! It’s got a nice subtle Digimon design so I can wear it out and people will just think I have a cool blue Camo backpack. I love subtle Digimon things that I can use in public!
I also got the Digimon Adventure Tri Taichi and Agumon figure that nobody likes. Because I felt empty without it. 

Laatly, and this is something I’ve wanted for awhile…

The Mimi Nutella glass!!
I’ve always wanted it and now I have it. Now I can make my Digimon pop-up cafe recreated drinks in a cool new glass!

End of Digimon Universe Appli Monsters Survey results

We will be discussing these in depth in our Appmon final overall discussion episode we’re recording shortly! I just thought it would be good to get a post together about it first!
Up first, we asked people in our ‘Best of Digimon’ survey (which is still running, by the way) what their favourite seasons of Digimon were. Since the survey is still running, I’ll only go over the Appmon-related bits.
191 people have completed this survey so far and all questions were compulsory.
2017-10-15 13_17_31-What is the best episode of each season of Digimon_ - Google Forms
Amazingly, Digimon Universe Appli Monsters was the third favourite overall to Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers. Only 6 people (3.1%) thought that it was their least favourite season making it the third least least liked season.2017-10-15 13_18_39-What is the best episode of each season of Digimon_ - Google Forms
Haru ranked as the third most popular leader, again, behind Tamers and Adventure and only 10 people (5.2%) said that Haru was their least favourite leader.

The last question on the currently running ‘Best of Digimon’ survey that relates to Appmon is the ‘favourite episode’ question.
While 55% of respondents hadn’t watched it yet, 4.7% didn’t remember their favourite episode and 10.5% didn’t remember their least favourite episode, the majority of the ones said that their favourite episodes were Episode 52 “Our Singularity” (14 or 7.3%), Episode 19 “The Net Ocean in a Big Pinch!” (11 or 5.8%), or 45 “The Big Clash!? Gatchmon vs Gatchmon” (9 or 4.7%) and their least favourite episodes were 26 “I am the Protagonist!? Encounter with Gatchmon (16 or 8.4%), 30 “Dokamon’s Love!? Gourmet App” (7 or 3.7%), or 29 “Buddies no More!? Gatchmon’s Run Away From Home” (4 or 2.1%).
Only one person agreed with me that Episode 4 was the best episode of Appmon! Outrageous! You can find my ranking here!
Next up, is the survey I put up yesterday which is about favourite characters in Appmon. 31 people responded.

For Non-Appli Drivers, I forgot to put Knight so we have a fewwww Knight entries in the ‘Other’ option.
However, of course, the favourite non-appli drive character is ‘Caught up man’ who won the question with 41.9%. Ai also did suprisingly with 19.4% and Knight had a combined count of 16.1%. I’m happy to see UMA Hunter J up there. Hajime also did well with 9.7%.
As for least favourite, Watson got 64.5% and Caught Up Man and Hajime were tied for second at 12.9%.
As for OUR favourite characters as specified by us in our coverage, listener Noam put together a count which I put together in graphs yesterday! You can find this here!
Alright! On to recording our summary episode.
