The show does a lot of stuff right. Tri appeals to the old school fans of the series. Tri introduces fans to the characters with a great debut, later made better with fans’ nostalgia familiar faces, both Digimon and human, good and bad.
It has the Pokemon: Origins feature of being both a remake in addition to having higher animation quality. I don’t know if the story is better, but it’s at least of equal quality to eh
The Digidestined work with the government on fighting anti-human Digimon, sort’ve giving it a Neon Genesis Evangelion 90s feel. Y’know without all the psychological and sexual references, although perhaps with some religious but different.
Doing this there could be some plotholes, but Tri does the characters proper justice.
