During the Digimon Fan Meetup event that happened in Los Angeles a few days ago, it was announced that the English dub for “Digimon Adventure” will premiere this spring. And as previously announced, the dub will star Zeno Robinson, voicing Taichi, and Ben Diskin, voicing Agumon.

The story begins in Tokyo, the Japanese capital when a large-scale network malfunction occurs. The main character, Taichi, is preparing for his weekend summer camping trip when this incident happens. His mother and younger sister Hikari get stuck on a train that will not stop moving. So, Taichi heads over to Shibuya to help them. However, on his way to the place, he encounters a strange phenomenon that sweeps him into the Digital World with the other DigiDestined.

The news about the English dub for “Digimon Adventure” was announced during the “Digimon” fan event hosted by Bandai Namco at the Los Angeles Convention Center that happened from February 23rd to February 26th.

It had an exhibition that celebrated the 25-year legacy of the anime from its beginnings as a virtual pet toy and provided fans with updates on the franchise today. 

This fan event also featured a small art exhibit of more than 140 artworks split into four sections. These are “The Birth and Rise of Digimon,” “The World of Digimon,” “The 25th Anniversary Commemoration Corner,” and the new “Digimon Seekers” project.
