We're finally done with all those gosh-darn devas, and we may as well touch upon these odd little critters who actually aren't Digimon. These peaceful little fairy-like beings were supposedly developed in the 1980's, before the first true digimon were ever coded. Somehow or other, they're now capable of granting wishes in and out of the digital world, and as you probably guessed, they're generally peace-loving and friendly.

I like their design, too. Bigger eyes and/or flatter faces are more common when something is supposed to be "cute" in most anime, even in Digimon, but these have goofy, lovable axolotl-muppet faces I wholeheartedly support.

The Digignomes were created especially for the Tamers anime, but outside their minor inclusion in 2010's Digimon Battle, they've never really appeared since, which is really too bad. The idea of non-digimon digital life forms is a good one, and doesn't feel nearly explored enough...although we'll obvious return to the subject before we're done with Tamers. Give it just about nine more reviews, and we'll get to the GOOD stuff.
