Yes. One of the good seasons we got recently imo. I ended up liking all the main characters despite being indifferent or even disliking a few of them in the beginning.
The pacing is not like regular Digimon shows, but more like monster of the week with plot - kind of shows. It was kind of slow in the beginning. The first half (ep 1-25) was MoTW with some plot episodes here and there, and some character development. Ep 26 was a recap episode. The 2nd half (ep 27-52) is where more plot stuff going on and major character development.
As for the gay, honestly it kinda is but not as gay as people made it out to be. If you think Taichi and Yamato are already gay enough in Adventure and tri, then Appmon will surpass them.
