"Sora is a sadsack, not a tomboy" edition
Obligatory "post your partners" reply.
So, what happened in the movie? Last time i checked these threads the 2nd generation kids became jobbers in the beginning of it, Taichi became a spine- and ballless coward and something about shipping shit.
But /v/ Digimon threads are always overrun by furries before any discussion can take place.
Would /vg/ be any better?

I predict Meiko's partner will evolve into LadyDevimon, but not the same one in Adventure.
Meiko will start as a rival with a misguided extremist goal, and implied to have a crush on Hikari.
Her redemption will be rewarded with a totally platonic Jogress evolution.

>mervamon isn't with beelzebumon
I am shaking my head to be honest, acquaintances.
They are really cranking that Adventure nostalgia to 11.
He will protect her and she likes it.
Yeah. Tai and Matt are official enemies bc of sora, and they invite her to soccer and a concert respectively. TK and kari dont seem to be in a relationship yet. But it is very probable that by the end of Tri its oficial.
Izzi is in love with Mimi.
>mervamon isn't with beelzebumon
Excuse me what?
One person will say Tri will not affect 02's epilogue.
Another person will say Tri will affect 02's epilogue.
Which side do you lean on, given there's no facts to support either notion at present?
There are people who feel the need to DEFEND 02's epilogue
I don't understand these people.
I don't think the Japanese are as vehemently against the epilogue as the West is.
>they will never show the epilogue kids getting murdered by alphamon
Please Toei, you're already doing good by brutalizing the shitheads from 02, now finish the job and drive the stake through the epilogue's heart.
There is SOME dissent, but yeah, the West has a lot more issues with it.
Come on now, anon, you know that won't happen. Status quo will be maintained through plot shenanigans and we'll be treated to the same epilogue, taken directly from the 02 BD.
In a possible post 02 epilogue
-Sora is still playing soccer with her daughter while making shitloads of money from selling her brand.
-Mimi owns a 3 Michelin Star restaurant
-Kari starts a childcare franchise
-Yolei works at home becoming very good at buying and selling on Ebay.
>Sora is still playing soccer
Yeah... I wouldn't bet on that.
At this point I don't care, I just want them dead even if it's only for a little while.
She's not punchable, she just sucks at her job.
>she just sucks at her job
that is a severe understatement. She won only 1 fight in the whole series and it was complete bullshit. And her favorite fighting move is an ass bump.
Ranamon was evil, she had to die and Izumi had yet to get a single kill.
Now Meiko is going to kick that bitch where the sun don't shine all the way up to the sun. She's going to win the hearts of both Yama and Tai because she's clearly got more charm and likability on her shoulders than Whora.
Unfortunately the creators said it would be. FUCK.
I refuse to forget him anon. He was the best thing that came out of 02.
Only while he was the Kaiser. He was a complete waste of space afterwards.
everybody besides Daisuke became worthless at the 3/4 point.
But that's always what happens in digimon, nobody but the main character/gogglehead is worth anything.
You mean the episode that amounted to nothing? What about it?
Her partner is Meikumon and she likes Yamato, so she'll make Sorato fans nervous.
All Toei gave was the name, a shadowy image of it, and maybe its Baby II form. Evolution paths and higher forms are still unknown.
Anon let it go. Takari was a shallow ship fueled by they both had gay brothers and they had Angels. Plus crest being compatible and that's it.
Why is Home Away From Home the only standout episode? Are there any more with this level of impact?
Looking pretty good, but Takeru seriously needs to lose the hat and scarf.
At first I thought they used the leftover budget of the first movie on this episode because of the similar animation style, but then I went and checked the airing date and found out that the movie was quite literally the first episode of the Digimon series ever.
The combination use of bolero, which they’ve never used on the prior 20 episodes before, Hikari’s sentimental theme song, brave heart digivolution song, the different animation style and the emotional relationship bonding between the sibling really makes this episode a masterpiece.
It was directed by Mamoru Hosoda and written by Reiko Yoshida, coincidentally both of whom Sorato hamplanets hate so much.
>02's new kids, their families and their digimon
>Kaiser and his digimon
>Adventure's kids, their families and their digimon

IM SURE THIS CAST WILL WORK GREAT AND WILL BE EASY TO MANAGE
Nani the fuck are you baka-tachi getting this Meiko liking Yamato stuff? Stop spreading rumors.
There is only one rumor about her liking Taichi, but even that's not 100%, but since Sora and Yamato are likely getting together....
Well they won't cease to exist...
In the months leading up to this, the artist behind this pic/animation tried very hard to convince me that the 02 kids would be a part of Tri when I made this.
I can only wonder what she thought when she saw them die.
I don't think they died, but the scene can be summarized as a take that for 02 and how bad/much of a wasted potential it was.
Also who in their right mind thought that linking the Digital and Human world would be a good idea? There is a reason Alphamon will be in Tri.
>who in their right mind
nobody involved in 02 was in their right mind, and obviously starting Tri off based on 02's ending (relevant to the ages, not the shitty adult epilogue) would really start things off on bad footing.
And that's a good thing.
Also we'll see the consequences of 02 after the BelialVamdemon fight.
And from how one can see it, it ain't pretty when we take Alphamon into consideration.
No, it has its own brand of cancer.
Beats /v/, that'd for fucking sure
I would take an occasional dissenting opinion over the rabid shippers in the /a/ Digimon threads.
/v/ threads are full of furries, /co/ threads are full of dubscrubs... were the /m/ Digimon threads bad? I forgot.
Because Japan loves their best boy and they want him get all the girls.
>getting this Meiko liking Yamato stuff? Stop spreading rumors.
It was a spoiler from the advanced screening of Reunion saying that Meiko likes Yamato.
Just thought I'd mention this but apparently there was a segment in a recent magazine about Christmas gifts.
Taichi → Sora
Yamato → Sora
Sora → Taichi & Yamato
Koushiro → Taichi

Jou → Mimi

What a shame. Yamato and Taichi are so whipped by Sora that they didn't even give their sibling anything. The same goes for Koushiro not getting a present too.
>the spot behind the knee
Anon thank you I awakened another fetish in my unfinished list of fetishes
I'm not falling for that. They're just chatting.
Again. I'm not falling for anything. It's best to just accept it and move on before it's too late.
Was Takeru always this flamboyant? The first PV that was leaked a few months back made you think they were going to revert him back into his former angsty self that we saw glimpses of in 02. Good to know that he turned into such a huge pansy. No doubt under the influence of his older brother's shadow.
ITT: people who think there will be any resolve whatsoever in the first movie instead of just teasing every ship possible
digimon threads will be a shitposting heaven after the first reviews
This is now a Sora appreciation thread. Say at least one good thing about this character that you profoundly admire!
Idk what they were thinking with that outfit. Then again, the kids had odd outfits in Adventure/02.
Eh, retcon it. Wouldn't make sense for there to be an entire season where Tai takes becomes a side-character for the new ones, but than is suddenly the focus again while the former newcomers are just swept under a rug.
Why do Nips always have to have such godawful tastes? Going to post what the actual results should've looked like.
>that feel when hipsters are such shit that people would rather ship the bad character with the girl, than that colossal faggot
So we can agree that it's more or less canonically been proven in the latest stills that teegay is in fact homosexual.
Idk anon. She did hunt down Kakudou about Sorato, so it's kinda hard to second guess.
Anyone know whether it was Kekudou who secretly wanted Sorato canon or it was something that was requested from him by his daughter? I've heart conflicting reports over this vital bit of information over the years.
No, he was the one who wanted Sorato, because he didn't want to be cliche (hah). He decided on it but didn't think it important to inform most of the staff working on the tv series, despite the fact that he wasn't in charge of the Adventure project.
There's still five movies to go so I wouldn't put all my eggs in one basket just yet. One would presume that he's going to come back towards the end with the rest of the 02 kids. It'd be pretty silly of Toei to abort them like that when they haven't even released the BDs of their respective reason. Contrary to what most of /a/ wants you to think, 02 isn't nearly as hated in Japan as it is in the west so I don't see why they would go out of their way to pretend like they didn't matter to debunk the epilogue.
Thing is while 02 isn't as hated as in America, it's not all that well liked either outside of Ken. FYI this poll >>133410051 is basically what the Digimon 02 polls have always looked like in Japan.
The epilogue also wasn't well received there either, even the staff scratched their heads at some of the decisions made. To make matters even worse the epilogue locks Toei in in terms of what type of stories they can tell. So yeah it would make sense for them to find out a way to get rid of 02.
People seem to forget this scene: Yamato tells the group Sora and Taichi went looking for that strange man in 02.
Koushiro, very concerned, asks Yamato if that's a good idea and that he (Yamato) should have gone with Sora instead.
Yamato says it's fine, and that Sora and Taichi have a lot to talk about.
Yamato a bro.
At least they deserved more respect than the 30 seconds they were given shown annihilated by Alphamon.
I'm not trying to make any excuses for why they weren't voted more than their Adventure counterparts but this was conducted at the 15th anniversary of Digimon Adventure so maybe that's why. Also, less hated doesn't necessarily equate to meaning same in popularity.
What do you think they're talking about, /a/?
All of the digimon polls end up like that.
A much older poll for instance
Question 9: Your favorite character in 02? (Note: this refers to characters in 02, not 02 main characters.)
#1: Yamato (391 votes)
#2: Takeru (227 votes)
#3: Mimi (206 votes)
#4: Sora (158 votes)
#5: Hikari (138 votes)
#6: Taichi (136 votes)
#7: Ken (Kaiser) (104 votes)
#8: Koushirou (96 votes)
#9: Daisuke (86 votes)
#10: Patamon (58 votes)
#11: V-mon (54 votes)
#12: Wormmon (46 votes)
#13: Jou (40 votes)
#14: Iori, Fladramon (39 votes each)

#17: Miyako (33 votes)
#18: Tailmon (31 votes)
#19: Chibimon (28 votes)
#20: Armadimon (21 votes)
02 characters have always been second fiddle to Adventure characters.
They're probably laughing at the fact Takeru still hasn't come out of the closet yet.
>'Who's he trying to fool, anyway?'
>'Hm... what do you think, Hikari-chan?'
Yamato did nothing wrong. Sora was the one who chose him. He didn't even know she liked him and Taichi gave her the courage to go see him.
>even the staff scratched their heads at some of the decisions made
No surprise there. I mean, who would have seriously imagined Yamato becoming an astronaut? It takes some heavy usage of drugs to be able to squander what the writers were thinking at the time.
>Mimi: ''It feels great to be back in Japan''
>Sora: ''Taichi wants me to go to his game and Yamato to his concert.''
>Hikari: ''Have you tried this new flavored ice cream at the store?''
If he's using Japanese names, what do you think?
Again, Yamato didn't know anything. If Taichi truly had feelings for Sora, he would've stepped up and confessed. Even if there would've been a possibility of rejection, at least he told her.
>He didn't even know she liked him
According to the PSP game, he considered Taichi a rival in Digimon and "in love".
Of course, though the game has damage control from Kakudou because in the series Yamato never alludes to anything,
>According to the PSP game, he considered Taichi a rival in Digimon and "in love".
He probably didn't know in all fairness which leads me to believe that they weren't that close of friends which we were lead to believe they were.
Taichi has always been emotionally challenged shall we say so these newly found feelings of his were probably not enough for him to fight for her. Plus it was already made clear that she wanted to spend time with Yamato and not him when he asked her if she had made any plans yet. I think she got what he was trying to imply from the stern look on his face before he encouraged her to go.
>gays in my diggymans
>Tamers sequel never ;_;
Though Sora hit rock bottom at the end of 02 in Japan.
While Taichi rank increase in newer poll
Question 7: Your choice of a best pairing? (Note: “pairing” is literally konbi, “combination”, and isn’t necessarily romantic.) (part 1) [overall]
#1: Hikari and Takeru (196 votes)
#2: Taichi and Sora (194 votes)
#3: Koushirou and Mimi (128 votes)
#4: Taichi and Yamato (105 votes)
#5: Daisuke and Hikari (67 votes)
#6: Jou and Gomamon (47 votes)
#7: Yamato and Gabumon (45 votes)
#8: Yamato and Takeru (41 votes)
#9: Yamato and Mimi (37 votes)
#10: Angemon and Angewomon (31 votes)
These polls are from when the series was airing, of course time has altered people's opinions on the matter hence these results>>133410051.
Runner-up: Koushirou and Tentomon (26 votes)
Reminds me of pic related
I'm not a Sorato fag but I'm not a dubfag either.
>Piyomon: "Why are you standing here?"
>Taichi: "Sora, what are you doing here?"
>Sora: "Taichi...!" hides present
>Gabumon: "Oh, something smells good!"
>Taichi: "Is that for Yamato?"
>Sora: "It's none of your matter"
>Gabumon: "Won't you come in?"
>Piyomon: "Sora's been standing here like a doofus"
>Taichi: "You should give it to him already, he's starting soon"
>Sora: "Yeah..." blushes
>Taichi: "Come on, just go already" pushes her
>Agumon: "If you don't go I'll eat it instead!"
>Sora: "Okay, I'll be back soon"
>Taichi: "Good luck, Sora..."
>Agumon: "HEY TAICHI YOU'VE REALLY MATURED"
Fuck it hurts remembering that dialogue, fuck you.
>Yamato did nothing wrong
So you're saying he didn't try to kill Tai because an evil tree told him to then abandoned his friends in the time they should have all stayed together?
Yamato was shit long before 02 happened.
ITT: people that can't let go of the past
It's okay to not like Sorato but why can't you lot accept that it happened and move on with your lives? Also, why aren't you taking into account Sora's feeling in all of this?
Tribute poster from Animedia by Kuwahara Sota
The problem with accepting it is that Sora and Yamato don't have anything in the way of interaction to suggest that they'd be attracted to one another.
The fact that said pairing also happened right when they were taking away any vestiges of things that made Sora even remotely interesting or attractive to viewers probably didn't help.
Bill and Ted would disagree. Jeri would to.
How the way the Adventure fanbase is crashing and burning, Tamers might as well be the best fanbase.
It's pretty nice to see how the yagami sibling are centered at the top and bottom.
Kazu and Kenta.
why are you even discussing this stupid shit? in the epilogue he was a diplomat and in the same epliogue he had a child for fucks sake what's with you stupid fucks that need to discuss every stupid shit even if it's not even debatable since the facts are there without any doubt.
i swear this fanbase is stupid as hell.
Reasons why Tri is going to suck:
1. They turned Yamato into a shirtless heartthrob
2. Made Taichi into a gutless wimp who still holds feelings for Sora
3. Killed off the 02 cast in the blink of an eye
4. Turned Takeru into a queer
5. Made Hikari into a brocon
6. Brought Mimi back to Japan with a bad fashion sense
7. Turned Sora into a heat magnet good at only ruining friendships
8. Killed Meiko's mystique by making her have a crush on Yamato
9. Dropped Koushiro's insatiable desire for his senpai Taichi
10. Making Jou an after thought
She has none. She's quite obviously a retard in both seasons and like >>133416616 said they have no actual intimate conversations/interactions with each other, and absolutely no chemistry. Their "romance" is such a fucking joke and so obviously shoved in the epilogue to appease Jap Sora fans (and by that of course I mean Cockudou and maybe two other faggots).
If/when this gets dubbed, they'll probably make up bullshit dialogue for Sora and Yamatt just so Soratards can say "SEE? IT DIDN'T COME OUT OF NOWHERE! I TOLD YOU SO!"
Fuck off already. It's poorly written shit, she's written shit, end of discussion.
Sorato is tough to accept because it feels like a 3rd grader wrote it. Sora and Yamato had little to no interaction in the original series and their only similarities are that they're both very unhappy people. There was nothing to suggest there was chemistry or no chemistry between them because we didn't see anything. I can accept Sora not hooking up with Tai very easily, but her hooking up with Yamato just doesn't make any sense to me. And no the CD dramas don't help that in any way.
Show don't tell.
People keep saying shit that the Zero Two cast is dead. Shut up. Stahp it.
This anime is not bold enough to kill anyone except Digimon, and the only one that ever stayed dead was Wizarmon.
I would love for some sort of real death, to sort of push the stakes higher, but it's unlikely.
>can accept Sora not hooking up with Tai very easily, but her hooking up with Yamato just doesn't make any sense to me
This. It's easy to accept they all just married different people they met as adults than...this.
>This anime is not bold enough to kill anyone except Digimon
Only if it's absolutely necessary for plot, you mean.
Even as a kid, I could care less that Taiora didn't happen. It's not about my favorite character "winning" or "losing". It's that Sora and Yamato have no good relationship dynamic. They're both sad, so neither of them will ever be happy together if they're just sad together.
There is a difference between two people finding strength and seeking hope in each other and "B'aww I'm sad and you're sad so let's be sad and depressed and cry all the time together". Not to mention I don't remember a single time they had a conversation with just the two of them (and those scenes with Hikari and Jyou in them don't count for those exact reasons).
Digimon English dub is a perfect example of why you don't fuck with the series adaptation and try to push what isn't there.
ie; Taichi & Sora and Mimi and Jou
How do we fix Miyako?
no lesbian route
I always felt Miyako was more interesting with Daisuke than Ken
At least they were entertaining together, apart not so much.
More scenes stressing her family and how they make her feel, or with every scene they do have, make it feel more sincere.
If she's supposed to be smart, actually have scenes showing her being smart or skilled with tech instead of leaving it mostly implied while having nothing to show for it.
Don't just have her be a female Daisuke and do a better job at conveying her kinder side.
Her pretend brother? Fuck yeah.
>When will Takeru realize
They'll have to show him.
Is Digimon even allowed on /co/ anymore? I mean, I know it used to be, but with how the board has changed over the years, I just don't know.
Digimon is only good dubbed. Jap Adventure is horrible but in the dub is great. The jokes they added are what makes it, the original is boring and the music in the dub is good too (Not muh jpop). Also names are easier to say and more realistic and they made it more like what it is, a kids show. Jap version is boring as fuck but dub is high energy and full of fun and goodness, way better. Anyone who watches the Jap version is just a retard and everyone who watches the dub agrees with this.
02's epilogue might as well be its own season, but you are wrong.
Yamato was both a popular middle-school rockstar and a successful astronaut in the same season he got together with Sora.
