Differences between Japanese and American series.[edit | edit source]
All things that have names that insult Christianity have been removed. And changes were made to make everything more childlike, in the Japanese series the plot involved a character who creates virtual monsters to attack the virtual world and damage machines and technology. In the American series, the simple presence of the digital monster in the digital world already causes effects that are not limited to what it does to the world of technology. In an episode of the Japanese series, he made a device on a puppy's collar turn into a time bomb. In the American version, aside from the fact that he was damaging systems, the only immediate problem was that he made the voices of two characters look weird.
