The official Twitter account of the Digimon franchise announced on Sunday that the Digimon Adventure: anime will restart its broadcast on June 7 at 9:00 a.m. JST. Fuji TV and other networks will begin rebroadcasting the series from episode 1. The anime is resuming its previous Sunday timeslot from before new episodes were delayed.
The anime's official website announced on April 13 that Toei Animation would delay further episodes of the series due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The new anime takes place in 2020 and features an all-new story centering on Taichi Yagami when he is in his fifth year in elementary school. His partner is Agumon. The story begins in Tokyo when a large-scale network malfunction occurs. Taichi is preparing for his weekend summer camping trip when the incident happens. Taichi's mother and his younger sister Hikari get stuck on a train that won't stop moving, and Taichi heads to Shibuya in order to help them. However, on his way there, he encounters a strange phenomenon and sweeps him up into the Digital World along with the other DigiDestined.
