Digimon Battle Heroes is a Japanese anime television series, and the seventh series produced as part of the Digimon franchise. It was produced by Toei Animation, and aired every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. on the Fuji TV and TV Asahi networks. With most of the original characters now in high school, the Digital World was supposedly secure and peaceful. This series covers a large scope of the Heroes' adventures taking them from the Real World, to the Digital World, the alternate dimensions, the cyberspace, to the future, and ultimately home once more. Unlike the previous seasons, Digimon Battle Heroes took on more radical changes for the character designs ditching the style animation always used previously in favor of more traditional animation similar to Stitch!, Mega Man Star Force, Digimon Data Squad and Digimon Xros Wars. Also, according to this series' composer, Ryota Yamaguchi, this series was to take in a wider age group, and was aimed to also appeal to late teens, however, without ending it as a hobby anime. This is why the story is much lighter and less darker than in previous series. Also, as requested by Digimon's sponsor, Bandai, in order to grab the older Digimon fans, Bandai wanted the reappearance of a Digimon from the old series, which was chosen to be Shoutmon, Agumon, and Lunamon.
