Unlike the previous seasons, Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02 , Tamers takes place in a different universe, where the first two seasons are a TV show. The show mostly takes place in the real world and revolves heavily around the collectible card game based on the series. This series is also known for its darker undertones and story plots, taking darker routes than in previous series. The anime has become controversial over the decade, with debates about how appropriate this show actually is for its "target" audience, especially due to Lovecraftian nature of the last arc. The English dub is more lighthearted dialogue-wise, though still not as much as previous series

Avestan language
term for a particular sort of supernatural entity with disagreeable characteristics.

Vishvadevas
The VISVEDEVAS (SANSKRIT : विश्वेदेवाः) ( viśve-devāḥ "all-gods") are the various Vedic gods taken together as a whole. In the Rigveda a number of hymns are addressed to them, including (according to Griffith) 1.89, 3.54-56, 4.55, 5.41-51, 6.49-52, 7.34-37, 39, 40, 42, 43, 8.27-30, 58, 83 10.31, 35, 36, 56, 57, 61-66, 92, 93, 100, 101, 109, 114, 126, 128, 137, 141, 157, 165, 181. RV 3 .54.17 addresses them as headed by Indra , This is, ye Wise, your great and glorious title, that all ye Deities abide in Indra. (trans. Griffith) The dichotomy between Devas and Asuras is not evident in these hymns, and Devas are invoked together with Asuras such as Mitra and Varuna . Though a large number of devas are named in the Rig Veda only 33 devas are counted, eleven each of earth, space and heaven. In later Hinduism , they form one of the nine ganadevatas (along with the Adityas , Vasus , Tushitas , Abhasvaras , Anilas , Maharajikas , Sadhyas , and Rudras )

Apsaras
An APSARA, also spelled as APSARAS by the Oxford Dictionary (respective plurals APSARAS and APSARASES), is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology
Buddhist mythology
. The origin of 'apsara' is the Sanskrit
Sanskrit
अप्सरस् apsaras (in the stem form, which is the dictionary form). NB The stem form ends in 's' as distinct from, e.g. the nominative singular Ramas/Ramah (the deity Ram in Hindi), whose stem form is Rama. The nominative singular form is अप्सरास् apsarās, or अप्सरा: apsarāh when standing alone, which becomes अप्सरा apsarā in Hindi, from which in turn the English 'apsara' presumably is derived, the 'apsaras' form being the Sanskrit dictionary form. Monier-Williams Dictionary gives the etymology as: अप् + √सृ), "going in the waters or between the waters of the clouds"
