The Digimon Savers anime takes place in the near future after the existence of the Digital monsters has been confirmed by the discovery of the Digital world inside the Net.  As more is learned about the Digital world it becomes apparent that, although they are rare, there are evil Digimon, and a group DATS (Digital Accident Tactics Squad) is formed to combat them.
