>>
>>138720093
What the fuck? Are you only talking about the dub? I mean I'm assuming you're not but that's totally wrong Hikari has her shit together? No she doesn't. A very large part of Adventure is how she has to rely on her onii-chan to protect her and this trait is only brought up one other time in 02. Outside of that, what even is Hikari's character? Do you remember episode 21 of Adventure? The one where Taichi goes back to the real world and we see Hikari for the first time? That episode she was creepy as fuck. We never get anything like that from Hikari ever in Adventure or 02 and the closest thing that Hikari has as a character is "girl Takeru" since both of them are basically the same person by 02 and Tri has only just begun to give her some sense of a different personality

Mimi is much more in tune with things than it would appear at first glance. The main reason Mimi is generally thought of as the main girl is that it felt like she is consistently the only girl that actually got consistent attention from the staff. Sora is practically just a mom, Hikari had like no character story at all and came in too late to get one and the less said about Miyako the better. Mimi actually has a character arc and a dynamic personality.

Remember this >>138720078 fucking scene and how it completely contrasts with her early in the series? Remember how she split off from the group cause she couldn't handle it and came back with an army? Remember when in this movie alone she straight up gets in the girls talking about her's face? These are all things that people like about Mimi and make her stand out. There's a reason why the Princess Mimi episode is a fan favorite

That is also why the darkness and Cthulu want her.


Without her Jo and Mimi could not have had their digimon evolve to mega.
Also remember all the strange stuff she did in the original.
Like shining light on everyone and healing them, seeing digimon everywhere before everyone else, hell she even knew most of the digimons names without a digimon or the analyzer telling her.
And all the other stuff.

Are ypu kdding me she was a weak little girl, that was seriously sick in season one, apparently the shit in her past with the hospital even caused a chronic weakness.

>>138720548
>Without her Jo and Mimi could not have had their digimon evolve to mega.
What? Jo and Mimi evolving to their final forms had nothing to do with Hikari. They literally said why they were able to do it in the movie

Wasn't all this stuff in like that one episode when she gets those Jesus powers

Small shit like that was shown inbetween aswell.
Also season two was supposed to elaborate on that and the show was originaly planned to go more into the direction of the darkness that called her into the other world before someone higher up decided to let us bring the emo vamp back and change the course of the show.

>Are you talking about Koromon? There is a reason for that. I don't remember that happening outside of that

>>138720641
>Are ypu kdding me she was a weak little girl, that was seriously sick in season one, apparently the shit in her past with the hospital even caused a chronic weakness.
Typically by having a chronic weakness you do not have your shit together. I am not knocking Hikari for being sick by the way, I know about that facet. I'm talking about how, because she came far too late in the story, she never got to properly develop and because of this as well as 02's writing failures in general, all her character was was "obligatory girl" and to parallel Takeru in everything. The only real episodes she got were the two Dark Ocean ones and I think we know what a mistake that turned out to be.

She was solely ever used in Adventure as a plot device because of her Jesus powers and therein is the problem
>>
>>138720655
It would have gotten rid of Meicoomon who is apparently the source of all the problems at this point.

There's a difference between bringing Jo back, which is true and "being the reason Palmon and Gomamon evolved" which is absolutely not true

>Small shit like that was shown inbetween aswell.
I count literally two times.
>Also season two was supposed to elaborate on that
Which is why I'm judging her in the show as is.

I still am not seeing how any of this makes Hikari the best girl. All you have been posting are "things that she (really her crest) have done. What about her character? What about her memorable moments that have to do with her as a person? I can name a bunch of that for Mimi as I laid out but I can't for Hikari because she again came too late for that in Adventure and didn't do shit in 02. Again, Tri is just only now starting to do something with her personality wise. Her interactions with Takeru actually feel like something interesting
>>
>>138720820
The problem is that those jesus powers never got the elaboration they were supposed to get.
That shit was off with her and the even amongst the kids she was special the moment they mentioned she is light, when all the others have character traits.

I mean remember the episode the kids returned and they wondered who the 8th one might be and everyone in the background you have Hikari written.

I want to play the PSP game retelling the original in hope they elaborate more on missed out parts.

Mimi's eccentric, not an airhead.

That's part of why she's so well-loved. When Mimi's on screen, most of the time you're guaranteed to have something hilarious happen. If it's not hilarious, then it's emotional. The Lilimon evolution in episode 35 is a brilliant example of the latter.

>>138720448
My fucking bro.

>There's a reason why the Princess Mimi episode is a fan favorite
It's such a great episode.

The rise and fall of the Gekomon Princess's reign alongside numerous failed attempts to get TonosamaGeokmon awakened (including the glorious homophone versions of "I Wish") while Mimi realises if you're going to keep being selfish, nobody will like you. She deserves to act arrogant for all I care because she is literally perfect.

There are similarities between that episode and what she faces in Ketsui when you think about it.
>>
>>138720962
>There's a difference between bringing Jo back, which is true and "being the reason Palmon and Gomamon evolved" which is absolutely not true
She helped him with that to get over his shit, which in turn helped mimi.

>>138721007
Exactly. What the fuck is Light for a character?

I'll tell you what it means. It means that this is what this character is. Light. She is the Jesus. There is no character or room to grow because of her crest trait, she solely exist to be Light. Good for Digimon to have their Jesus, not so much for the show

Hikari has absolutely no influence in Mimi's development arc whatsoever.

The only people who have an influence on Mimi are Jou and Meiko (and possibly Sora). He gets Mimi to open up a bit more about her bold nature while Meiko is the one who puts Mimi back to her usual over-confident self.

>Well I understand where you are coming from and the big brother is speaking out of me.

In fact, it sounds like you've given up trying to argue for Hikari.

Mimi helped herself. Fuck, Mimi didn't even change. Meiko is the closest thing to helping Mimi

Let this be a lesson: never try and argue against "Mimi is the best girl". You will lose and lose badly.

>>138721544
>Mimi helped herself. Fuck, Mimi didn't even change.
I think she became a bit more aware of other people's feelings but by and large you're right.

Once she got over that hurdle of "giving a fuck what other people think about you" then she was back to her ultra-confident, egotistic and most importantly pure self.

That in turn activated her Ultimate level.

They always did that. Takeru's original Digivice turned yellow with green buttons, so I suppose the white part of the D3 could become yellow.

That's only the OG Digivices, the D3s only change during a Jogress.

I liked Mimi more as a kid because Palmon seemed cooler than Biyomon. Watching the sub as an adult I still like Palmon a lot more than Piyomon.

An important part of why it felt like they gave Mimi a lot more attention in Adventure than the others is because her voice actress Ai Maeda (AiM LOVE) was an up and coming idol back then. It had the double benefit of being the voice of Mimi did absolutely wonders for her popularity

I don't get the hate for Sora. She may not be best girl but I have always enjoyed her character.

Damn fucking right

Palmon is a really underrated partnermon and her voice is fucking adorable

>>138723551
I'm sure that's half the reason

But overall Sora is really really boring. She basically fulfills the role of obligatory girl in a boys toyetic series and mainly only has the role of the mom. I don't think there's anything necessarily "bad" about Sora but there's just so very little to Sora that there's not much you can do with. You can dislike Miyako, you can wonder what went wrong with Hikari, you can worship Mimi but Sora is like "eh, she was there"
>>
>>138723551
I don't hate her, just think she's extremely boring and uninteresting.
>>
>>138723551
Its nostalgiafags who self-insert into Tai so they think Sora cucked them.

I actually liked Sora. She was well balanced and had no crippling issues unlike the others. And when her issue presented itself, she solved it quickly and even got a new evolution out of it.

Did you forget when she ditched the others and ran around sort of helping/not-helping them in the background because she found out her Crest was of Love and didn't think she deserved it

The Sora focus episodes (the few that there were) felt like they had absolutely no idea what to do with her to give her depth. I think Sora's mom develops better than Sora did

She's a non-character. Her only defining personality at this point is "Do I choose Taichi or Yamato?". Admittedly, that fills her issue regarding love, but they forgot to write her a personality beyond that. She's not a tomboy anymore, which makes sense since she's growing up, but she's not really anything else either.

Mimi was handled well
Joe was handled well
They're handling Koshiro well
They're handling Yamato decently
Hikari and Takeru are more... eh
Taichi is being handled really poorly, but at least he still has a personality
Meiko is an anime archetype
>>
>>138724900
Was she ever really that much of a tomboy? I mean, yeah she was on the soccer team but when I rewatched Adventure I realized I never really got that vibe from her.

Also her Japanese voice makes her sound like 10 years older than the other kids

Compared to, like, Ruki who I would consider a tomboy in a heartbeat

In Adventure she was a tomboy, by 02 she had already mellowed out a bit. Still a sports girl though.

>>138724900
Going by one interview I think they'll go with her still being the team mom, who worries and tries to make everyone happy.

My first idea was to make her rebellion against mother's ideals an active thing with her being punk-like, fascinated with western ideas, and considering love a weakness, which detaches her from her partner but learns to reconcile with her mother and accept others.
That however would make her a different character and just be pandering to my fetishes.

I like how the kuwagamon that kicked greymon's shit in also did the same for garurumon.
Had alphamon not intervened it likely would have torn through most of the chosen adults.

That's because it was the only one who didn't get ganged by 2 Adults at the same time.

We all agree that the purple Imperialdramon was a fake, right?
It's never spelled out, but none of the characters in the movie acknowledge that Imperialdramon is V-mon's evolution, or express any hesitation to kill someone who might have been their friend once.
Yes, I know Tri was written to downplay the continuity of 02 so far, I know it's meant to be about the original 8, I know, I know, I know.
Yes, you can joke about how nobody likes V-mon, but seriously I can't imagine them saying *nothing at all* about the possibility of it being the same one.
Either there was some clue that Imperialdramon was a fake before the fight and I missed it, or this is an alternate timeline where the 02 kids died before unlocking their own Imperialdramon so of course no one recognizes him, and the latter doesn't seem likely to me.
>>
>>138729284
>tfw you discover that all 6 main elements have Double Spirit Evolution while Frontier is airing in your country
>Never see them in the anime

I'm still mad I never saw Jet Silphymon or RhinoKabuterimon animated.
>>
>>138729370
All of it was fake. Even Ken was just an illusion by Hackmon.
>>
>>138729435
well, blame the favoritism of Takuya and kouji, they got THREE evolutions and made everyone else sit on a bench and cheer
>>
>>138729435
Let me tell you what would have happened.
They would lose on their debut episode to some dumb shit like a numemon then keep losing until they give their spirits to Red and Blue.
>>
>>138729370
They do acknowledge it's Imperialdramon (it's impossible to tell from context if they mean the Imperialdramon they know or an Imperialdramon) and Takeru and Hikari react to it going Fighter Mode.

My bet is that they either know or think it's another one because of it's color scheme. No other infected Digimon had different colors.
>>
>>138729448
>by Hackmon.
This stupid meme needs to die.
>>
>>138729537
You need to stop leaning on your own desires and just accept what they were trying to make very obvious.

Wait... there are people who believe that was the real Ken?

I thought it was pretty apparent that it wasn't.
>>
>>138729370
>We all agree that the purple Imperialdramon was a fake, right?
No, it's the real one. It was just as weak as Daisuke's. Plus even though no one cares about 02 they did recognize it, weakly.
>>
>>138729448
>>138729761

Finally people who seem to understand. No one seemed to pick up on this in the last two threads I was in.
>>
>>138729795
There's no reason to think it wasn't him.
>>
>>138729761
I don't know if he is or not. Right now I'm leaning towards it not being him.
I just don't see how Hackmon is as obviously responsible for it as >>138729631 says. All we know is that he was watching the fight, like he watched everything else in Tri.
>>
>>138729761
I'm pretty sure its Osamu's ghost, ghost exist in Digimon
>>
>>138729825
Being silent (the Kaiser used to gloat a lot) and the weird way he flickered and disappeared make me see the possibility of it being a fake a valid one.
>>
>>138729856
The Ken hologram/illusion/vision disappears and Hackmon is shown with a gleaming light from his eye, implying something along the lines of projecting an image
>>
>>138729980
There's also the issue of the Kaiser infecting Leomon and maybe doing something to Meicoomon before giving him back.
I have no reason to believe Hackmon will be a villain or interested in spreading the infection, that would go against his character everywhere else. Of course Adventure can make him a villain if the writers want, but I will not assume that with no evidence.
>>
>you will never take over the digital world while wearing a cape
>>
>>138730090
The thing is, we don't know why or how Leomon got infected. That might not have anything to do with "Ken". It could have happened when he fought Ogremon. Meicoomon's aggravated state could have been the thing triggering Leomon.

Also, I believe that Hackmon is the one sending Koushiro messages, and the "act" that he put on with the Ken hologram was just a method training or preparing the Digidestined for something worse out there.

Meicoomon's corruption could be triggered by the distortion. I'm willing to bet that is the case, due to his reactions in the first movie.
>>
>>138730090
Its Hackmon's turn to wear the retard cap anon all RK have to wear it
>>
>>138730353
I think he's the one who sent the prophecy too,and I think your reasoning does make sense.
But then why would Ken/Hackmon take Meicoomon just to give it back? Thats what doesn't add up to me, it seemed very clear that Ken wanted something with Meicoomon and gave it back with a smile because he knew his goal (making it go berserk) was accomplished. If Hackmon is really doing things like you said, why would he do things that would incite Meicoomon to go out of control?
>>
>>138716568
Got new hats
>>
>>138730488
Dukemon and Sleipmon never wore the retard cap.
>>
>>138730598
Dukemon tried to kill all humans, remember?

Sleipmon wore the retard cap in Cyber Sluts.
>>
>>138720795
>the final villain won't be kingetemon
Sad
>>
>>138730551
I don't think causing Meicoomon to go berserk was his intent. Capturing Meicoomon was just a apart of his test for the Digidestined, upon them defeating his fake Imperialdramon, he gave Meicoomon back as it was never his intent to hurt him.
>>
>>138730756
Assuming Hackmon knew what Meicoomon is, he should know it's a retarded idea to provoke it.
He had other ways of attracting the chosen children, including abducting other digimon or even the agents.

Unless they're going with a clumsy and imature Hackmon (and not just Jesmon in disguise) that makes no sense.
>>
>>138730843
>Assuming Hackmon knew what Meicoomon is

This is the key phrase here. Hackmon may not know what Meicoomon is or what he was capable of, all he may know is that Meicoomon seems to be of some serious importance. Important enough for Alphamon to hunt him down and the Digidestined to want to protect. Hackmon's main focus may be on whatever else he believes is out there. Probably the one behind the distortions and the infection.
>>
>Mimi is supposed to learn some lesson
>Based on events the lesson can only be if you are perfect do whatever you want because it will all workout.
>>
>>138731223
I don't think they have to learn a lesson, just face/acknowledge their flaws. The prophecy doesn't imply anything else, some may change after that realization and some may not.
>>
>>138729980
That's light reflecting off it's goggles you idiot.
>>
>>138731531
This whole hologram shit is retarded and easily one of the dumbest Digimon theories ever.
>>
>>138731872
If course it is. Plus if he really was a hologram, how was the Kaiser just walking around in the real world with the gate closed and without Hackmon in the area? He showed no signs of transparency or flickering or wavering. Unless people are upset that Ken is the Kaiser again or they're delusional and desperately want that 02 retcon, I see no reason to doubt that he was real and that it was Ken.

Digimon doesn't really get doujin. A female partner for a male character would all depend on what she is for fanart. If it's something like Angewomon then yeah, it'll obviously be super sexualized by the fanbase. But something like a female Blossomon or something wouldn't get sexualized as much. Or a female Cutemon, Culumon or something. It all depends.

>>138740403
There's a difference in format though. For a yearly toy commercial series like Digimon that's basically okay. But a movie series split up into 6 movies over a few years that is clearly being targeted towards an older audience? Not cool.

>>138740521
Well how could the story get more dense. I thought that there are already way too many plot points and mysteries to begin with

What about TEEN-AGE WOLVES

>>138732061
not to mention the part where the "hologram" picks up and holds a digimon. oh right, it must be a hard-light hologram projected by hackmon. wait, but hackmon was never shown entering the distortion, and nobody commented on a strange digimon jumping through the distortion, which means hackmon was already in ken's dark digital space before the distortion opened in the first place. but surely he still used his magic eye to project a hard-light hologram of ken that could walk out the distortion and pick up a physical digimon in the real world.

it's such a stupid theory

and on top of that, imo it's way cooler and more sinister/threatening to think that ken never lost connection with the digital world, and he's spent these 6 years practicing on how to be a competent bad guy.

part 3 is gonna give us H-kabuterimon and perfect level meicoomon, but just patamon, no seraphimion

part 4 we'll get hououmon and some gatomon, maybe an angewomon appearance, but no megadramon (and as much as i want it, definitely no ophanimon)

part 5 will give us megadramon and seraphimon, as well as a dark ultimate form for meicoomon

part 6 will give us all the ultimates (including meicoomon's good/true ultimate). i'm pretty confident there won't be any mastemon, because i just don't see meicoomon turning into ladydevimon ever. i could see an omegamon+ (think imperialdramon pm), or secondary jogresses from everyone else (vike + H-kabu, rose + houou)

anyone have a clean version of this?
>>

>>138741579
did you not watch Reunion? it opened up by showing daisuke + iori + inoue getting taken out by ken

my guess is that he kidnapped and tortured all 3 of them, and then basically told daisuke that the only way to prevent him from kidnapping and torturing kari was to jogress into imperialdramon. as always, though, a digivolution powered by negative emotion is much more powerful than normal, but also a brainless brute

>>138741719
that is a part of it, but also, i think with only 24 episodes, that was the only writing decision that allows them to have a well-developed antagonist.

since we're focusing so heavily on real-world character development that's not directly focused on digimon fights, there isn't really enough time to establish a new devimon/vamdemon-tier villain and give them enough screen time to really be threatening. they've already gotta deal with alphamon, hackmon, and meicoomon as mysterious and potentially evil, so having a character that the audience can see 1 time and go "ugh this dick, i know all about him and what his whole deal is" saves them a lot of screentime for shwing other stuff

>>138741747
damnit i knew i should've rewatched part 1 before starting part 2. i wonder how, in the short time between being attacked by alphamon and the present, ken gained so much power? you'd think he could've just teleported away from the battle with alphamon if he had been able

>damnit i knew i should've rewatched part 1 before starting part 2. i wonder how, in the short time between being attacked by alphamon and the present, ken gained so much power
This is a big reason why I don't think that is actually Ken because we saw him get BTFO'ed with the other kids.

I think it's pretty obvious if he's the real Ken and not some kind of copy, he's just being controlled by the villain.

>>
>>138741534
Because Digimon have never displayed telepathic powers, right?

Ken being an illusion by a powerful Digimon makes more fucking sense, than him randomly learning how to teleport and float, and the fact that he says absolutely nothing, considering that that wasn't the type of villain he was...

But whatever.... humans learning how to float around and teleport apparently makes more sense than powerful telepathic Digimon in this universe, anon.
>>
>>138742055
>he's just being controlled by the villain.
is he though?

joe's panicking about how to cope with growing up while having the weight on his shoulders of being responsible for protecting others. he's relearning how to be reliable

mimi's sensitive and self-conscious as ever, and dealt with her internal conflict over acting the way others wanted her to, or staying true to herself. she's relearning how to be sincere

taichi is once again crippled by the pressure of his self-proclaimed leadership position, and terrified that he's going to fuck it up and get someone hurt or worse. he's lost his youthful recklessness, and is relearning how to be courageous

yamato is trying to find a way to help taichi deal with all these difficulties, but is unable to be there for his friend because he's feeling angry and hurt and betrayed. he's relearning what true friendship really is

even hikari, to a smaller extent, seemed unsure of herself after she was unable to get through to joe during their chat in the rain. it's been a while since she needed to use her gifts of light in order to push someone else forward and help them find themselves, but she managed to recapture it at the end.

ken got his shit kicked in by alphamon. now we haven't seen what's been going on behind the scenes, but we know that when shit went down with milleniumon, ken lost his shit, and felt that the only way for him become powerful enough to protect those he cared about was through violence and anger. it's likely those same feelings of weakness rose up again now. he's still got a lot of growing to do if he's going to relearn how to find strength rooted in kindness.

all of these follow with the prophecy - you need to cross through the darkness in order to find the light. only by first being dragged down by your flaws can you overcome them to find true strength. i'm sure the same applies to ken

You people are dumb as fuck for believing this is the real Ken. Did you even see when he got merc'd with the other 02 kids? He's down for the count with the rest of them.

Lucemon would like a word with you

Also it's completely impossible that the child form of a Royal Knight isn't just remaining in his child form just to conserve power and/or not draw attention to himself.
>>
>>138742602
has there ever been a time in the show where a digimon voluntarily de-digivolved to conserve power/lay low?

i'd guess that for now, hackmon is just investigating/snooping around at gankoomon's behest. gankoomon doesn't really jump on board with the rest of the RK, so he's having hackmon confirm his suspicions that alphamon is behind it. hackmon's entire deal is observing battles in order to gain experience, he's just doing that. on top of that, i can't imagine they would create the child form of digi-jesus and then have him be a bad guy
>>
>>138742602
I think Hackmon is just Jesmon hiding his power as well.
Because if he's taking this long to be properly introduced I don't think he's going to have enough screentime or development to go through a becoming Jesmon subplot.

That's normal appearances but when shit hits the fan Hikari almost always have some dramatic emotional handicap going on while Mimi always becomes pro active in doing something even if she whines half the way. She's a lot braver and resourceful than her appearance and mannerisms make you think.

>>138742804
Read the threads. Everybody who supports the "Ken was an illusion by Hackmon" theory, believes that he did so as a way to train or test the the Digidestined for something far worse, not because he's the villain.
>>

>>138742838
I god, I hope they don't kill off Meicoomon to justify giving him to Meiko. If they do I hope he bullies her for being a sneezing wallflower all the time.
>>
>>138742887
the "it's a test" logic is consistent with cyber sluts, wherein gankoomon trains hackmon by making the player fight him, however it seems a little... forced? like, what's the point of sending the prophecy to koushiro just to be like "ok there's no time for you guys to think about this and learn from it so i'm just gonna attack you good luck lol." it feels like cheating for someone who knows about the prophecy to just outright go and do the shit without waiting for the characters to reach that realization on their own

--

does anyone have a clear image of infected meicoomon from the end? it was unclear to me whether that was just like, its hair bristling up in anger/rage, or if it was an actual form change/evolution

also, why the fuck did it get subbed as Orgemon instead of Ogremon?

>>138742936
It made sense to go along with his Ken illusion, but I'll give you that, he could have just used Chimeramon and it would have made just as much if not more sense.

I think even if Meicoomon dies it will revert to a digitama and still be Meiko's partner.

>joe's reliable

uwotm8
>>
>>138743644
let's not forget that reliability and sincerity are dub terms

originally, joe has the crest of sincerity, and joe is definitely sincere here (at least, at the end, when he returns to help out gomamon). joe's traits are faith, sincerity, and honesty. although he had doubts about his relationship with gomamon, he never lost faith in gomamon, and at the end, when he was sincere and honest about his feelings, and acknowledged that he and gomamon were meant for each other, his faith in gomamon redoubled, and they grew stronger than they ever had before

mimi's was originally the crest of purity, although i think the dub use of sincerity still preserves that relatively well. mimi definitely rubs people the wrong way, but she's honest about who and what she is, and never presents herself as someone who she isn't. she had doubts about being herself, but ultimately, cast those aside when she realized that being herself and pushing away some people was better than being who others wanted her to be and not staying true to herself.

this has always been the show's pattern - doubt and fear lead the characters to falter, then they push through those doubts and fears to find their strength

I've never been a fan of using Sincerity for Mimi because that's kind of a detriment to her character (though it is in line with how she is portrayed in the dub when it felt like her entire character was being shallow).

Mimi has Purity because it's supposed to indicate innocence and truth, something Mimi is. Mimi has always been 100% honest about how she feels about things and that's gotten her in trouble a bunch of times but is overall an accurate portrayal of the kind of person Mimi is.

Most people seem to forget that this isn't the first time we've seen Taichi go through one of these hesitant episodes before. Back in Adventure, it was Sora and Koushiro trying to make him take things more seriously when they came to the conclusion they would die in the real world too if they got killed in the Digimon world.

I'm assuming it was after they'd all left the Digital World.

>All I remember is her wearing the team down by crying all the time and Taichi wanting everyone to get a move on because they hadn't much time left.
That was what I meant.

Mimi in the few episodes between the return to the Digital World and her temporary departure of the group is not herself any more. Her exposure to all that suffering, something she had never experienced given how perfect her life was (and of course still is), broke her.

She wasn't expressing herself in the same way.

Friendly reminder that Wallace helped train Ryo to master his gary stu powers

Why would it?
>>
>>138748548
In that case so were Yamato, Koushiro, Taichi and Mimi since they were training under false conditions. But why were they fighting for a chance to win one of the Four Holy Beasts as a partner?
>>
>>138748770
The whole ruse was that three of the four Holy Beasts had gone berserk and the remaining one is searching for a suitable partner to help fight them. So it's not just getting a Holy Beast partner, it's saving the Digital World.
>>
>>138748403
it's actually the reverse.

They are movies, then split in episodes.

>That's why I don't understand why it was so traumatizing for her.
Mimi's problems in Adventure stem from the fact she had no problems in her life.

This doesn't look like a girl still coming in terms with her survivors guilt.
>>
>>138748770
Because D-1 Tamers is a JRPG, featuring characters from the hit show "Digimon Adventure."

The developers didn't put much thought into it and neither should anyone.

Tri almost killed Hikari for me. She isn't half as polite as I remember her being and now Takeru has become too much of a metrosexual for my taste. I preferred it when he had that nothing-is-going-to-phase-me-so-just-keep-smiling shtick going for him.

>>138749169
The question is, is it even canon or have the games established its own continuity?
>>
>>138749344
They have been acknowledged a lot of times in the past. But as with any older supplementary material it's current canon status will most likely always be nebulous.
>>
>>138749344
It's Digimon, everything is canon to everything cause of muh multiverse shit. But the 02 anime does reference the games with Milleniummon and Ryo in a flashback and Ryo in Tamers has Cyberdramon and I've heard arguments that it's whole "Muh enemy" stuff is actually referencing the fact it's Monodramon and Milleniummon's Joggress.

But It's not outright stated either way.
>>
>>138749344
Outside of the 5 second scene in 02, I'd say it established its own continuity.

I would treat it similarly to Xros Wars the show and Xros Wars the manga.
>>
>>138749262
But Hikari had no personality whatsoever.
Most of the complaints I see about Hikari's personality are people who projected something into the blank slate she was in 02.
>>
So movies 4 and 5 will jave the other 02 megas.

She'd recovered by then, Anon. That's over six months after the events of Adventure.

Hell, she'd recovered even before they left. Don't you remember her army?

Ryo games are canon during an interview, it was said that Ryo was from Adventure and that he had lost his memories.

Yeah, in a interview in the May 2002 issue of V-Jump with producer Hiromi Seki, so take it with a grain of salt.

>Q: Are the Ryo who appeared in 02 and the Ryo who appears in Digimon Tamers related?

>A: They are the same person. Simply put, Ryo was flown beyond space-time as soon as he defeated Millenniumon in D-1 Tamers, and he lost his memory. And this is why he encountered Takato and the others.

Too bad they didn't ask her how Ryo's father got there, or why they were living in a different part of Japan.

>>138750135
Or the fact that his mom is still in Adventure

Do you think Meiko is going to ask them how they know about Ken in the next movie?

His mom is alive just stuck in Adventure because Ryo forgot about her

>>138750442
Or maybe his parents split, making him equal to Ruki in almost every way.

>>138750440
No, it's going to be ignored for more SOL shenanigans.

>>138750135
Also that scenario with amnesiac Ryo Seki talks about is shown at the beginning of Brave Tamer, released a little later with the purpose of ending his story and bridging his story to appearance in Tamers.
Ryo wakes up in ENIAC (a proto-digital world of sorts that exists before all of them), finds Monodramon and goes on to fight Millenniumon forces through time and space. In the end Monodramon forces a jogress with Millenniumon and they revert to a digitama that would later become Ryo's Cyberdramon.

Except, doesn't Ryo regain his memories in the end, or at least knows of his exploits as told by the exposition computer?

Was he bonked in the head again?

That's funny, because I don't remember him ever being mentioned in it.
>>
>>138750715
As far as I know it's not clear how much of his memory Ryou recovers. I have not played Brave Tamer and thus have only summaries and incomplete scripts.
I've seen people say he feels betrayed over the events of D-1 Tamers so if that's true he did recover some of his memories.
He also seem to recall stuff concerning Millenniumon.

Didn't Ryo jump to another universe precisely because he remembered how much of a bunch of ungrateful and manipulative assholes the adventure team were with him?
