Four years before the Digidestined were transported to the Digital World, and before they met their Digimon partners, they had no idea what Digimon were. That changed late one night when Taichi and Hikari Yamagi watched a Digi-Egg appear out of their computer screen. When it hatched, it changed the fate of the eight kids who were chosen to save the Digital World. However, Taichi and Hikari were more concerned with how to hide the growing Digimon in their apartment. Little did they know they’d soon see their second, and much less friendly, Digimon...

Plots are very similar. Wars in the digital world. Both are funny and have a great art style to them as well.


(Have in mind that Digimon movie one is combination of movies 1 and 2, or at least it was back then when I watched it) First of all I think that Summer Wars is massively influenced if not copied Digimon on a whole new level. If you watch both movies in a row you will notice that SW copied a lot of scenes and even dialogue. I don´t think that its dry copy but its really hard to ignore that much similarities. In both cases plot is practicly the same... shocking? Difference is in charachters and world but everything else from plot development to major twists is too damn similar (if not same). I hate to be the one impying that one thing is copy of other, but in this case it is hardy ignorable. Both are marvelous anime, however SW is newer and more appealing to watch for a new generations (mostly beause of animations and possibly better action, which I doubt). But to me Digimon the move (Movies 1 and 2) is far more superior anime. If you enjoyed one of these you should definately grab the other one.


Both of these series are very similar in a variety of ways. While the Digimon movie does come first, and Summer Wars is almost plagarising Digimon's plot, both movies are equally amazingly well written and animated.
