Anime streaming service Crunchyroll announced it will add a new Digimon series to its expanding catalogue.
The new Digimon show, Digimon Universe App Monsters will be available on the service beginning on Monday, October 14 at 3 PM PDT for Crunchyroll members in the United states, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, Central America, and the Caribbean.
It will become available in Latin America on October 25th.
Here’s the official synopsis from the show:
“Everyone in the world uses smartphone apps, but within them lurks unknown creatures called App Monsters or “Appmon.” The Appmon are AI lifeforms with the ability to think and act, and exist in the boundary between the human world and the digital world. In the vast sea of the internet, the “villainous AI” also known as Leviathan takes control of the Appmon with the L-virus and begins hacking every system, thus gaining control of the human world from the world of the net. Haru Shinkai is led to acquire the Appli Drive, and uses it to materialize Gatchmon, a search app monster.”
Digimon Universe: App Monsters is the seventh official installment of the Digimon franchise, but also stands on its own.
The anime adaptation was animated by Toei Animation and produced by Dentsu. It was directed by Gō Koga and written by Yōichi Katō with character designs by Kenichi Ōnuki.
The series first aired in Japan in 2016. It aired 52 episodes in total.
There would also be two manga volumes released by Shueisha. The first volume was illustrated by Naoki Akamine and was released in V Jump.
The second manga was illustrated by Katsumi Hirose and serialized in Saikyō Jump.
Digimon Universe App Monsters joins Digimon Adventure tri and Digimon Xros Wars on Crunchyroll.
