Digimon World with Michael Shea (The Basement Lounge)

Eventually we had to take a look at the world of kids and little monsters that fight. For a lot of people this was their first foray into the world of manga and anime. But we didn’t know that, and we probably wouldn’t have cared at all if we did. There were kids just like us that got to play around with these amazing creatures that we all wish we could have as a pet.

That’s right, we’re talking Digimon with Michael Shea from The Basement Lounge about that show I definitely didn’t try to make you think was that other anime about monsters fighting each other. Which I’m realizing now doesn’t narrow things down enough at all.

Learn such things as:

  • How were American audiences tricked with the first movie?
  • Isn’t this just Pokemon except……..not….?
  • Why would I want to take my Digimon to the bathroom?
  • And so much more!
