New episode airing tomorrow.
Wake me when terriermons back
>>19744581It's time for post-game now that they have defeated the final boss Millenniumon
What the fuck happened to that baby squid?
Wargeymon has aged really well. The design is more than two decades old and it still looks really good.
>>19747552How do you feel about MetalGarurumon in comparison?
>>19747558I never really liked it so I cant really tell.
>>19744581Any news on the new game?
>>19747580MetalGarurumon should've been a bipedal design from the get go.
It just hit me...A few threads back, I mentioned Wisemon appearing against a HercKabuterimon debutWith Patamon and Gatomon's megas being god-like against Milleniummon (Before WarGreymon stole the show)There's now only 4 Megas to worry aboutHerculesKabuterimon, Vikemon, Phoenixmon, Rosemon
>>19747582Not yet, but Bandai Namco is expected to crop up sometime during the last day of E3.
This is Milleniummon's strongest form, ZeedMilleniummon. Say something about this Digimon.
>>19747612How can Zeed be its strongest form when it's cursed to not being able to use its full power?
>>19747612>ZeedMilleniummonWhat about ZeedGarurumon?
>>19747558Just as good
>>19747612looked good for about a minute.
>>19747603 >There's now only 4 Megas to worry about *cough* Do you really think Toei would let the younger siblings not get their own alternate Ultimate forms, Anon?
Am I cooler than WayGreymon?
>>19747839Angels are weaker than the dragons though, there's no point on using them.
>>19747612We almost got Milleniumon X Antibody in that fan vote poll awhile back.
>>19747846The dragons were confirmed to be special evolutions that used the powers of the kids' crests to evolve. That doesn't apply to "standard" Ultimates.
>>19747845For me the best WarGreymon is Gaioumon. And no one asked but the best Agumon is ClearAgumon, best Greymon is GreyKnightsmon, best MetalGreymon is MetalGreymon X antibody virus.
>>19747856Oops dropped this.
>>19747857There's still time for Taichi to get another mega.
>>19747850I honestly hope it never exists...
Does Gabumon/Garurumon have something equivalent to Gaioumon? :/
>>19747839No, Patamon and Gatomon already got their megas. The dragons were confirmed to be their megas, not the angels.
>>19747855They will just treat the size as special and will just have them be normal size going forward.
>>19747845No, you are badly animated trash.
A stream for this week's episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct4Rpn_QCbUStarts in around 40 minutes.
>>19748063They picked a good voice for Wisemon
>>19747552I never liked it much in the first place. It having dude arms under the gauntlets and a beetle shell for no reason never jived with me. Always liked Metalgreymon more.
>>19748203It's Hayami Show who was Wisemon in Xros.
>>19748063So they're splitting up again
Episode 52 preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9k6557Yvl8I
>>19748375Next Ultimate coming up!!!
Also hello Burpmon!
>>19748063>>19748375So the groups areJou and the kidsTaichi and Sorawith the rest being solo. Looks like we're about to get the rest of the Ultimates with Jou protecting the kids for his.
>>19748387What level is that thing?!!!
>>19748452shitpost-level, clearlyspeaking of shitposts, here's a fat fuck from https://www.fujitv.co.jp/b_hp/digimon/index.htmlAnd the Google Translated synopsis of #52 with a few amendments (as best as I could do, a better translation will be along at some point):A new adventure for the children has begun to avoid the "huge ruin" of the digital world. Taichi and Sora stopped by an island with active volcanic activity during the journey guided by the Crests. There, they meet the Digimon Junkmon, who is in charge of the construction work of the island. Junkmon is working hard to add embankments to protect the island's Digimon from the upcoming volcanic eruption. Sora helps with that, but Piyomon is injured on the way. Sora struggles alone to prevent Piyomon from overdoing it, and Piyomon wants to be with Sora. The feelings of the two gradually pass each other.
What are your grades on this episode?
>>19748591Sora is that bad?
>>19748701Nobody likes Sora.
>>19748706are butthurt sora/tai shippers running colon?
>>19748387What's Kirby doing in my Digimon?
>>19749010He wanted to be a Digimon
>>19749013Fair enough, he deserves to get his way.
So I called it wrong? Or does HerculesKabuterimon appear in this week's episode? (Sorry if I offend people using an english name, will try to mix my usage where-ever possible)
>>19749263They only used Adult and Perfect level forms this episode.
>>19749269So still four Mega/Ultimate levels to show excluding Ophanimon/Seraphimon likely being saved for the final battle
>>19748463>When you pack on the pounds waiting for your turnStill, I need to mention DeepL's a slightly more cohesive translation tool compared to Google Translate.
Find it weird that they didn't mention that there's Digimon with the crests as part of their bodies...like Searchmon, who was there the whole time. Thought they were going to establish what Armor Digimon were there for a second.
Still wonder if the ancient shit will go anywhere
>>19747856>best wargreymonIs Zekegreymon because it's the only thing that looks at Metalgreymon and goes "now for the upgrade let's be that but way fucking more"Shoutouts to Shinegreymon though as it also follows very smoothly from Rise, it's just that Rise itself is non-standard. Still, not literally going from Metal to War is cool with me.>>19749010Reappearing after a very, very long gap in appearances.
>>19747845no but you could be
>>19749309I'm aware of DeepL but I was half-asleep by the time I posted that. I'll remember it in future, thanks.Here's the proper translation as provided by Wikimon:In order to avert a "Great Catastrophe" in the Digital World, a new adventure begins for the Children. During their journey, guided by the Crests, Taichi and Sora stop off at an island with intense volcanic activity. There, they meet Junkmon, a Digimon responsible for construction work on the island. Junkmon is working hard to install a levee to protect the Digimon on the island from an impending volcanic eruption. Sora and the others help out, but Piyomon gets injured. When Sora struggles on her own, keeping Piyomon from overdoing it, Piyomon wants to be with her. The feelings of the two drift apart gradually.
>>19749788Let me guess true final boss will be done in one episode
>>19749801Would that surprise anyone at this point, I doubt it.. Let's just hope it's episode 65 so episode 66 can be fun.
>>19749275The angels won't appear since they already have the dragons.
>>19749788>It's a reworking of Birdramon's debut from the original seriesI see what you did there Toei and I like it.
>>19750018Well shit, I didn't even realise that at first.
>>19750564>why did I have to be with the shittiest kid out of them allBeing Piyomon is suffering.
>>19750569Sora really is just the worst character, isn't she? Especially in this reboot where she has ZERO characterization. At least in the original I could say Sora has some maternal vibes and looks out for people. But in the reboot I literally can't pinpoint a single character trait like I can with the other kids. Hell, even Hikari's blank-stare autism is more of a characterization than Sora has.
>>19751355>But in the reboot I literally can't pinpoint a single character trait like I can with the other kids.She looks out for people? You're right, she really does struggle to have anything in Colon, even in her featured episodes. The Toropiamon one seemingly only managed to be worthwhil by sheer luck.
>>19751355They doomed her the moment she and Yamato hooked up. That just turned her into shipperbait. Then her ending in 02 has her become a traditional Japanese wife throwing away all of her tomboyish traits while her husband is a rockstar astronaut. Tri then went full retard and made up a love triangle that never existed and made her the depressed member of the group with Taichi and Yamato arguing around her. Colon stopped focusing her character on romance but replaced it with nothing. She's just there. They don't know how to write her. It's like they don't know how to balance a character whose biggest trait is love but is also a tomboy without having her entire arc be focused on being the prize for one of the guys.
>>19751371In the original she often acted as a mediator when people would argue, but since no one ever argues or has any conflict whatsoever within the group she loses her one thing.
>>19751366I would have probably made her the kid who's good at general outdoors stuff. Camping, fires, tracking, etc... At least that gives her something she's good at, specially since Colon hasn't done anything with their inner conflicts from the original.
May I be in Colon and give Yamato advices?
>>19751371>They don't know how to write her. It's like they don't know how to balance a character whose biggest trait is love but is also a tomboyWhile I get what you're saying, Sora was doomed well before 02 and all the associated shipping garbage. She's just a very boring character, that's the simplest way of saying it.
>>19751391You know what? Yes, please do. Please sow some conflict among the main cast, I beg of you. I want to see Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon fight.
>>19751371>Tri then went full retard and made up a love triangleIt didn't though. For all that tri did wrong, this wasn't one of them.Mostly because they were clearly setting up Meiko as Taichi's new implied love interest, but the point of them not doing any shipping stuff between Taichi and Sora still stands.
>>19751537In the first movie, Mimi teased Sora asking her who she preferred, Yamato or Taichi causing Sora to blush. Yamato and Sora seemingly weren't a couple in the movies despite them taking place after 02 and the staff specifically mentioned the love triangle.
>>19751981>In the first moviePretty sure the only interaction any of the Chosen Children had in the first movie with each other was standing on a balcony and happening to see the same thing going on at the same time, outside of Taichi and Hikari.
>>19752026What are you talking about? The first movie had them at school together in the first 10 minutes. Even if you're splitting the movies into episodes like the dub you still have a ton of interactions. We're talking about Tri, btw.
>>19751981>staff specifically mentioned the love triangleThe staff comments felt my like them having fun tweaking the old shippers given all the mvies together and how much it seems to be pushing for Taichi/Meiko with the very last scene of tri>>19752026>>19752042Both of you seem to be misinterpreting what each other means by "first movie"
>>19752064>The staff comments felt my like them having fun tweaking the old shippers given all the mvies together and how much it seems to be pushing for Taichi/Meiko with the very last scene of triThe love triangle had more attention than Taichi/Meiko. Meiko was dropped and only camoed in Kizuna. The staff walked back on Meiko because of how unpopular she was and even said she was never meant to be Taichi's love interest.
>>19752088>The love triangle had more attention than Taichi/MeikoI did not get that feeling from tri at all.
>>19751355She's here to help, anon. Don't question her motives, just let it happen.>>19752088>The love triangle had more attention than Taichi/Meiko.Are you sure you're remembering it correctly? IIRC, the only love triangle was between Taichi, Yamato and the plot.

They remembered Tamers!
Episode 53- The Gecko Hot Springs Rebellion (June 20th)Jou Kido and Gomamon go to the hot springs they'd found in the past in order to heal Patamon and Tailmon. However, the hot spring they were looking for was dried up, and a huge mansion had been built in its place. The owner of the house, TonosamaGekomon, who loves hot springs, has monopolized the hot water. Not only that, TonosamaGekomon took a liking to Gomamon and captured him, claiming Gomamon as his wife. Jou and the others are thrown out of the house and can't even get close to TonosamaGekomon. Then, Jou comes up with a plan.Episode 54- The Wandering Warrior, Rebellimon (June 27th)On their way to their next destination, Taichi and his friends enter a wasteland inhabited by ruffians who spend their days fighting. There, they meet Cutemon and Rebellimon. Rebellimon is a fierce Digimon who suddenly attacks Taichi and the others. Rebellimon says that Cutemon is just a nuisance that noisily follows him around, and heads off to fight the rowdy Boarmon on his own. However, Taichi and Agumon follow him, and the pair's teamwork help Rebellimon out of a bad end in his fight against Boarmon. While Rebellimon says that he prefers to fight alone, a few memories that had been completely lost come back to him. He was once the Ogremon they knew...!Episode 55- The Targeted Digimon School (July 4th)Mimi Tachikawa and Palmon return to the Tanemon village where they had first spent time in the Digital World. However, a Digimon school had been established there at some point. Babamon, who claims to be the headmaster of the school, convinces Mimi and Palmon to try out the school. However, the lessons are so rigorous that they feel like they're falling apart. They think about running away, but gradually they realize that there is a reason for Babamon's strict instructions. Just then BanchoMamemon, who had dropped out of the school after a dispute, brings his henchmen with him to "pay his respects."
>>19757308Cool set of episodes!
>>19757308>Orgemon back as RebellimonQuite happy
>>19757308>Ogremon is back as RebellimonI hoped they'd actually go through with it, and here we are.BanchoumamemonWell, hopefully that stops that one guy who was whining about nothing ever using it from continuing to do so.
oh and also>Babamon in the Rosemon episoden i c e
>>19757308I expected he would show up again, now I wonder if they'll say if he was revived or just hit so hard he lost his memory. I remember mentioning he was flickering, but didn't see him die in the episode.
>>19757308>Mimi episode with delinquent shenanigansNice. I had just finished Famicom Detective Club, no less, so the timing is fun.
>>19749774a viral GeoGreymon line culminating into BlitzGreymon could be cool
>>19757538He probably survived by mechanizing himself, kind of like MetalGreymon's profile lore.
>>19757308Guys are we finally going to get a Tonosama Gekomon evolution fight Vikemon?
No Megas in the title.. The heckEvery debut should have Mega names in the title
>>19757683Which suggests one of two things. Either they don't get their Ultimates or there are alternate Ultimates.
>>19757683>I hate surprises, every episode should be devoid of discovery and the episode titles should all tell me exactly what to expect.People like you are the absolute worst.
>>19747913>The dragons were confirmed to be their megas, not the angels.Of course the dubfag is retarded
>>19757308What are the chances we get BanchoLillymon?
>>19757743>mimi getting two alt evosMight happen.
>>19757743Really hoping this episode leads to that.
>>19757737Ignore him. Its a big bait and everyone who replies arguing with him is falling for it
>>19757743If Rosemon had already debuted, I could see this as aone-off like BlitzGreymon and Ponchomon, but I don't see them giving her BanchoLilimon as her main Ultimate and before that real one actually debuts.
>>19757737I'm not wrong. The dragons were confirmed to be their megas, not the angel. They confirmed it with the key art and with the marketing.
>>19757848Yeah. Literally you just have to wait until the marketing that has been out since literally the start of the anime proves to be correct, and then laugh at him.
>>19757892Well, it's not correct. Goddramon is Patamon's mega and he's not in the digivice, but Goddramon is in the current key art and current promotions for the show.
So far we got half of the cast who got Megas with two having episode titles devoted to them. (With a third coming in a similar fashion to the first two)So it may not be too crazy for other Megas to appear in episodes with the title hiding the Mega debut
>>19757852Going by how they handled Goddramon and Holydramon, one off Ultimates that make Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon look like Perfects, I wouldn't be surprised if she gets Bancho as a one off.
>>19757950They aren't one-off ultimates, Goddramon and Holydramon ARE the ultimates of Patamon and Tailmon.
>>19758600>That camera pan out from his fist>That impact>Millenniumon's teeth shattering>>19758606>Millenniumon melting>>19758609>That camera pan out from Taichi to WarGreymon to the great distance>Millenniumon's arm moving and becoming largerAll that attention to detail throughout the entire episode. Its not uncommon for episodes previous to have well animated bits, probably some that would be better individually when compared to scenes thoughout. But its rare for a show like this to have such animation for the ENTIRE episode. It was so good. One of my favorite bits was after the first cannon shot, the attention to detail in the area where it struck was on the level that even the tiny digimon like Parasaurmon scurrying about was so good looking.I don't give a shit that Millenniumon lost to a Spirit Bomb when everything looked so good.
>>19758624>But its rare for a show like this to have such animation for the ENTIRE episodeThe dragons were literally still jpegs outside of the bits when they attacked.
>>19757743I get what they're going for with the plot, but it's just cruel to feature BanchouMamemon as an antagonist and not include BanchouLilimon somehow.
>>19758672Watch BanchoLilimon show up in Mimi or Palmon's head.
>babamon transform back into rosemon and mimi gets banchoulilimon
>>19758624That wasn't the only thing that happened, a bit after Goddramon's fist connected, Millenniummon's spine shattered. It seems it tries to push back against the fist, and the spine shattered as a result.
>>19751383>In the original she often acted as a mediator when people would argueWhich didn't help at all
>>19759764Helpful or not, it was still a role she filled and a character trait you could pin on her, which is a lot more than you can say for her in Colon.
>>19759829>which is a lot more than you can say for her in ColonEven her Ultimate episode has been immediately overshadowed by the following three after their synopses were revealed. People are definitely looking forward to gecko-seal sex, Ogremon returning and potential BanchoLilimon instead of generic_Sora_plot.doc.
>>19751355Ive said this from go. Sora in the original had some personality, even if you didn't like it. This nu-Sora is just nothing.
>>19761066Original Sora had a personality, it's just she was completely overshadowed by Mimi.
I'll be honest, I don't really understand the hate for the Spirit Bomb Gaia Force thing. People talking about it being a case of Taichi stealing the show are missing the entire point of why it worked.
>>19763239I think the problem is the structure of the show. Because they spend the first half of the season just jumping from stakeless plot fight to stakeless plot fight, then all the "meet and help digimon while traveling" part is almost 100% contained in the space of traveling to the final boss for like 10 straight episodes immediately prior to the final boss fight it just ends up feeling cheap and unearned. When you see Etemon on the screen, for example, it's like, "Hey, remember 3-4 episodes ago? What a journey we've had!" Doesn't really sit right.If all those "help digimon while traveling" episodes had been better weaved in from the very beginning as part of the show then showing all those digimon who had been helped along the way would be a satisfying callback to the whole adventure up to that point. Instead of, "Hey, remember a couple episodes ago?" we'd see the digimon on the screen and think, "Wow, look how far we've come! Look what an impact we've left throughout our whole journey!" It would just come across a lot differently. As it stands, those episodes feel more like incidental clean-up rather than a properly integrated part of the adventure.
>>19763407There should have never been a Real World arc of any kind. That is what has fucked up the show.
Can we all finally admit this sucks in comparison to what it's rebooting? Initially everyone was in denial, but it felt wrong to me since the start. Now it feels like everyone is starting to admit it.
>>19763521I was certainly never in denial of that.
>>19763521Acting like you're some independednt thinker and everyone hasn't been saying this shit for months is dumbass behavior. Have some self respect.
>>19763521I wouldn't say it sucks, but it's not a series without its flaws. There has been things I liked an enjoyed from it and things I didn't.
>>19763992I like it
>>19763521It certainly doesn't match the highs and most memorable moments of the original, but I can't get mad at the crew for trying something different.
I'm on episode 10Where are all the in-training forms? Do they re-appear after an event, or do they always just seemingly get power crept out of the show, in favour of Champion/Ultimate rushing? Even when Greymon got his ass handed to him, he didn't revert to in-training
>>19757308Hopefully Rebellimon evolves into Titamon later to have a rematch against Wargreymon.
>>19764589They never devolve past child, even when past shows would have them do that. There is one sort of exception, and we see one in a flashback way later, but other than that they may as well not exist.
>>19764589Outside of Patamon's and eventually Gabumon's thanks to a flashback, I don't think we've even seen the other forms. Going Perfect doesn't take anything out of the Digimon and going Ultimate doesn't seem to do so either (there's a nebulous "can't do that again so soon after last time" limit but the show ignores it pretty much immediately afterwards).
>>19764692The reboot just abandoned the pretense a lot of the faux-limitations the original had.The thing about the level restrictions or limits placed by the original is how arbitrary they were. Reverting from Perfect back to Baby was something that ultimately didn't matter. Often times they'd be back to normal next episode with little problem, and sometimes just went back to just Child. There was very little consistency to it. It only pretended to be a drawback that rarely actually impacted anything. There's a reason that 02 and beyond abandoned pretending evolving to higher levels had drawbacks. Even the few times 02 had them revert to low levels it never once actually hindered them.
>>19766333Savers definetly had it as a drawback after Masaru went fucking ape shit on Touma's ass and caused ShineGreymon to go Ruin Mode.Wasn't there a couple episodes between that episode and when Agumon showed up again where he was stuck in Egg/Koromon state?
>>19766383That's a different situation than pretending that higher forms have drawbacks. That was a case of Dark Evolutions are bad.Because as soon as he hatched he when only a couple of minutes as Koromon before becoming Agumon again and then ShineGreymon.
>>19766333>Reverting from Perfect back to Baby was something that ultimately didn't matter.>sometimes just went back to just Child. There was very little consistency to it.I always just saw it as a way to show how they improved over time. When they went from reverting to Baby up to reverting to Child it was a sort of indication of character growth.
>>19766484>I always just saw it as a way to show how they improved over time. When they went from reverting to Baby up to reverting to Child it was a sort of indication of character growth.But that's the thing though, sometimes they would go back to Child and then the very next fight they'd revert to Baby. Sometimes they wouldn't even have gone that time all that long and they'd revert to Baby afterwards but then a drawn out time they'd go Child.
>>19763992>Anthro animal>Skull helmet>BELTS>bandages>a freaking assault rifle>blades on said rifle>open crotched pants>skull marking on the pants>cactus shoulder pad>camothis is peak digimon design
>>19745629What was up with this guy saying "It brings joy to my knowledge"? Is this something that makes sense in Japanese and just doesn't translate well?
>>19768446They're chaps like cowboys wear, not pants. You're right though about it being peak Digimon.
Are these threads better than /a/ because last time when the whole planet size fight happen, /a/ lost there shit when Taichi stole the show. They were extremely angry.
>>19769008/m/ has the best Digimon threads, imo. More varied and tempered opinions and more openness to discussion.
>>19769008Is that board that allergic to main protagonistism or something?
>>19769112I think it's more to do with them misremembering the original series. There's been a definite nostalgiafaggotry in their reactions. Been this way since the second episode really when Omegamon was revealed.
>>19769122A bit funny that you mentioned the original series because I watched both OG Adventure and 02 this year.
>>19769144Many on /a/ haven't watched them for years and it shows.
>>19769008Because /a/ exclusively only liked Digimon for the bad character drama not the digital monsters or world so the fact that Colon has done away with that pretty much means they'll never care about it
>>19769204>/a/ exclusively only liked Digimon for the bad character drama/a/ didn't even like it for that. They only give a damn because of shipping bullshit.
>>19769204>>19769191Is it bad I loved watching Taichi and Yamato argue and fight each other in the original Adventure then?
>>19769212No because that actually had a point. Character development moments are fine.
>>19769212Everyone always shits on this episode but I love it. Wish we got some real conflict between the characters in Colon.
>>19769008>a/ lost there shit when Taichi stole the showAh yes, more people missing out on the Gaia Force only being possible because of the whole world pooling their power.>>19769112Yes, but also the Western fandoms in general seems to be allergic to the Power of Friendship or otherwise unable to comprehend it.
>>19769348>also the Western fandoms in general seems to be allergic to the Power of FriendshipBecause they don't have friends and thus haven't realized the benefits that this confers.
>>19769348I don't really mind the power of friendship depending on the situation. It makes perfect sense in Digimon, since emotions do carry power.
>>19768801Not really, I don’t think. Probably meant to sound weird
>>19769521Well, you said the point I would have made.Personally, the power of bonds is a trope I enjoy seeing. Even if it doesn't offer you any real power, that you can push yourself past your limits or even get a second wind because you don't want to let those people down or you want to protect them. Things like that are always something I like.The Gaia Force to me doesn't come off as Taichi stealing the show because of the nature of the scene.
>>19769218>No because that actually had a point.No it didn't. Yamato acts like a faggot throughout because he trust the word of an obvious badguy and Gabumon is too much of a tool to knock some sense into him thus cultivating into a pointless and poorly animated fight.
>>19769712He was manipulated at his weakest state. Of course it had logic to it.
>>19769707The power of friendship is a super real thing though. If I have my friends, and you don't have any friends, we outnumber you.Sure, there's exaggeration in fiction, but that's the whole point of fiction, isn't it?
Episode 52 stream starts in 20 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWqpkLr_1SU
Just how big is Zeed? /a/ has the answer.
>>19769919Sheet man, so he's even bigger then Earth!!!!
Well that was fucking pathetic even for Sora. An Ultimate without an enemy?!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NtNiJ7KagIEp 53 preview
I didn't catch... was our mystery mon preview for next week Vikemon? Or ShogunGekomon?
>>19770238TonosamaGekomon, so no new evo for Joe. Where the hell Kabukimon comes from I have no idea.
>>19770250Kabukimon looks like it appeared in Fusion in animated form aside from a Adventure 02 sound dramaKinda disappointed though, perfect chance to break a new Mega out to give Vikemon a reason to show up
See It is obvious from the title. If there Mega there will hint or spoil in the titles already.
Did koshiro's digimon encyclopedia thing confirmed vikemon next episode?
>>19770250Kabukimon is Tailmon's Digimental of Purity evolution in 02, so Tailmon might evolve into it like Patamon to Pegasmon. But it might just be TonosamaGekomon's minion?
>>19770126so sakuyamon? who digivolved to survive d-reaper blobs like garudamon digivolved to survive lava?
>start arc with the premise that everyone needs to go on their own personal journey>send everyone their separate ways>lol jk we're actually just following Taichi around foreverAt least he didn't completely take front and center in Sora's episode, but this is a bit silly. Was this show written with a different cast in mind or something? It never feels like a proper ensemble show.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SqjzMrt8EcScores on this episode?
>>19770427Yeah, I wouldn't put too much stock into Tailmon being Kabukimon, given that we've already seen like, 3 of her Digimental forms (Tylomon, Opossummon, and technically Maildramon)
>>19769008Given that their thread this week has descended into multiple posts about raping and dismembering elementary age school children then yeah you're right.>>19770419Literally answered two posts above you. Read the fucking thread.>>19770600Those two scenarios aren't comparable at all and you know they aren't.>>19770889I genuinely do wonder how this show would have been received were it a completely new cast. Terribly, I guess.
>>19771371And Kakudou too.
>>19771401Whoops. I mixed it up with a few posts about /a/nons wanting to fuck and beat up Kakudou before you mentioned the spoiler text happening there.
>>19764017What is this adorable looking thing?
>>19766333This is why 02 was the weaker series, and just overall less interestingThe point of the Digimon franchise was that depending on how you raise something, you got different and specifically good or bad results from your treatment, this comes from he origins as essentially, a Tamagotchi spin offTaking away concepts isn't improvement, it's shallowing for the time to be spent on empty flashiness
>>19771435New Baby II for one of the new DIMs, named Goromon. Comes from Sunamon (a Baby 1 which is a slime puddle, as many Baby 1s are, except made of sand) and turns into Sunarisamon, the focus of the DIM.
>>19771456>The point of the Digimon franchise was that depending on how you raise something, you got different and specifically good or bad results from your treatment, this comes from he origins as essentially, a Tamagotchi spin offI will forever hate episode 22 of 02 for going against this entirely and rewarding Daisuke for being a fucking idiot.
>>19770889>Was this show written with a different cast in mind or something? It never feels like a proper ensemble show.They said at the start that they took a lot of inspiration from V-Tamer. On that Taichi was on a solo journey and occasionally teamed up with other tamers.
>>19771525So they wanted to do a show similar to V-Tamer with Taichi being the protagonist but they later decided to add in the rest of the Adventure cast?
>>19771584It was always going to be Adventure, but they said on an early interview that they were also influenced by V-Tamer. Having Taichi on a more central role and having a bunch of episodes with just him paired up with a single other child seems based on that.
>>19768446Its a scythe specifically. His nickname is reaper of the desert or something. The skull is from WereGarurumon's pants too.
Junkmon was really cool, but the "Safety first!" crap with the sound effect got annoying real quick.
The problem with Sora's character in reboot is that her only trait is that she likes to help people. Nothing deeper. Not even any quirks to give her something to stand out with in scenes.
>>19772934She also isn't helped by the staff all but worshipping Mimi, meaning she's rendered irrelevant even within the girls of the group.
Guys, I don't think I like this series. It just has nothing that makes me want to watch another episode. I just want a central antagonist that talks shit
>>19772934Did she have anything in the original show?
>>19773087She had that miniarc where she was helping the group from behind the scenes when she thought her crest would never work, and that thing with her mother.
>>19771800Ultimate, but Vulturemon design scream as Garudamon counterpart.
>>19773085I mean if you just started watching, fine, but if you've watched all the way up to this point you've already got 52 episodes under your belt. May as well just ride the last 14 out for better or worse.
>>19773085As someone who doesn't dislike the new series, thats easily my biggest gripe, the lack of a real antagonistic presence to help drive the plot. I'm not saying every episode needs to be plot driven, but the lack of a real antagonist is definitely a detriment to the series.
>>19775082>>19773085Let me be in Adventure 2020.
>>19775082I don't think it's a detriment, just different. A lot of these showed as measured by their antagonists and if we're being fair a lot of Digimon antags were generic evil shit talkers.Some more fun than others, and generic evil shit talkers are my jam, but I don't really feel like we're missing much in that respect.
>>19775125And then there's Tamers, where the main antagonist had no actual personality whatsoever. More generic than the literal fucking computer main villain, who at least had something approaching a point to his evil the first time around.
>>19773048Even the porn artists prefer Mimi.
>>19776455The evo animation for this one was pretty cool.
>>19772934>The problem with Sora's character in reboot is that her only trait is that she likes to help people.So she has more of a personality than her original counterpart
>>19775710Because Mimi is cute!
>>19763582Acting like the initial reaction wasn't how GREAT it was is dumbass behavior.
>>19777759TONS of people were complaining about Omegamon appearing in the third episode, complaining how derivative the first few episodes were of Our War Game, complaining about the sharp drop in animation quality immediately after the OWG episodes... don't pretend it was met with universal acclaim.
>>19769204Nigga without character moments it's just pokemon.
>>19777768>complaining about the sharp drop in animation quality immediately after the OWG episodesAfter Episode 2. Episode 3 looked like fucking shit, lots of things sliding across the screen to "move".
>>19766662It's about how much energy they expended and how much experience they had in a given form. Perfectly captured by the first time Angemon appear he went back into a fucking egg after he used HAND OF FATE, but by the end he either just returned to Patamon or didn't have any trouble keeping the form at all.
>>19776833Sora's only personality trait in the original show was being mopey and self-loathing despite seemingly overcoming this multiple times, and she would frequently return to being mopey in 02 and future movies.Knowing him, being with Yamato probably made that worse for her.
>>19773087She was depressed half the time and emotional, very much the mom of the group. You can tell she cared for everyone in the group and worried about them, to her own detriment.
>>19778131We got a little of that in the last episode, but because she had so little development beforehand it felt rushed and she just seemed like a cunt.
>>19778131>>19778144A lot of people I knew over the years referred to Sora as a tomboy.Upon revisiting the series, I don't really get that, aside from wanting to play Soccer.
>>19778196>wears a riding helmet>wears pants>plays soccer>doesn't want to go into the family flower business>only other girl to compare her to is a girly fashionable princess-type in a dressShe's relatively tomboyish.
>>19778206That didn't last after the original Adventure series. Granted Sora's only personality after that is "life sucks".
>>19771791but I thought Leomon is WereGarurumon's boyfriend
>>19778254Leomon is a player.
>>19778285well he's a player all right, every digimon has dicked him
>>19775088Begone, fujoshi magnet.>>19778254>>19778285>>19778296Look at what you brought in!
>>19778310digimon has furfags since time immemorial anon
>>19778326Yeah, but they don't have to be in this thread too. Go to /a/ for that.
>>19775088It'll be be really weird if we don't get any kind of Vamdemon appearance even if he goes Venom right away, he's generally agreed to be when Adventure gets really good
>>19779578Didn't know gabumon was a type of lizard.
>>19781597Just as a reminder, Gabumon is a lizard who happens to be a furry. This is, and has always been, canon.
>>19781597The fur he wears is supposed to change his classification from reptile to beast. Is Gabumon Black different for some reason or is that image just wrong?
>>19781677Reference Book also says it's a Reptile.
>>19781665They need to give Gabumon an uncloathed evolution line already.
>>19782633Greymon, Geogreymon, Tyrannomon, Darklizamon, Dorugamon, Growmon, and Strikedramon are all perfectly acceptable evolution options for Gabumon.
>>19782887Cyclomon is better
>>19783038Unfortunately, Cyclomon going basically totally unused for a decade+ bit it in the ass, as it has never canonically been able to evolve from Gabumon.It probably will be made able to eventually, though.
>>19783095Shut the fuck up tripfaggots go shit up the super robot wars thread Im so tired of your shitty opinions god just take your tripcode off so I can pretend its different people ans not be so mad
>>19771371>Those two scenarios aren't comparable at all and you know they aren't.they really are.
>>19786728You alright, Agumon?
>>19782625Who let Piedmon in?
>>19786722Poor Kuwagamon, one measly first episode appearance and it's been relegated to low level mook in everything ever since.
>>19790933Does this mean we're getting Greymon for the fourth time on a DiM? The fuck are they doing with this roster?
>>19790945maybe it's just for the shorts, we don't have a Palmon DIM, yet for example
>>19790946Hermit in the Jungle (Probably)
>>19791779Is that a Gaioumon X? Isn't Gaioumon already an X-antibody digimon?
>>19791932Gaioumon is already X.Ittō no Kata(One Sword Mode?) is something like an "Awakened Mode" or Burst Evolution.Maybe something like Imperialdramon FM. Can't confirm...
>>19792007Na, it's not Burst Mode. They already have that design ready and waiting if they ever want to make Burst Mode a thing that matters again, which, given we last got a new one like ten years ago, might be happening eventually.
>>19793023That's why I said it's "like" it is, not that it literally is.Also said "Can't confirm".
>>19794410Someone help him out :(
>>19793023It is interesting how both forms use that "torso face" motif. I wouldn't be surprised if Itto no Kata is a way to split the difference between As'Maria's concept and something new.
>>19791779God I hate (especially recent) X-antibody shit
>>19794743Rizegreymon X was fucking great, though, one of the best X designs. Rizegreymon with all the Metalgreymon X attachments mixed in, and its wings have the Crest of Courage overlaid on them.
Ya know I rewatched the Garudamon scene from the episode where Taichi and MetalGreymon got turned into fruit...people said Hououmon didn't get teased, right? What if it was done more subtly like how MetalGarurumon's was for WereGarurumon vs Mephismon?
You know, I was really worried for a long time that BeelStarmon and the rest of the Three Musketeers would remain neglected and forgotten like all of the other Digimon introduced back in 2013 due to Bamco hyping the fuck out of Hackmon's evolutionary line, Which they still kind of do, let's be honest. but not only did she show up as part of the 20th Anniversary Pendulum V-Pet, she also got an X-Antibody variation for the following X-Antibody themed one. Then she got official reference images released, and now she and the other members of the Three Musketeers have cards in the new TCG...Things really seem to be looking up for Beelko and company. I really want to hope that an anime appearance, either in Colon or a future Digimon series, or a proper 3D game appearance is in the cards for her at some point in the future.
>>19794830I like that it has ShinGreymon's sword on his gun
>>19794894It's a combination of the Geogrey Sword with Metalgreymon X's arm, the parts that became the Alterous Arm.>>19794891The eternal issues the Musketeers have is that they're three big Ultimates, but while they have fans, it's nowhere near enough hype to justify taking as much time as an anime would have to on them, and they can't take all the spots in a V-Pet (though as Gundramon recently proved they can get in as one-ofs), which mostly just leaves games, which are infrequent and rely in large part for Digimon on already made assets, which they don't have.It's the same issue the Olympus 12 get. If you're an Ultimate group and you're not consistently bullshit popular like the Royal Knights or the Adventure 01 lines, you're not good enough to get in everything.
>>19794830That one has the benefit of not being drawn by As’mariaAll of As’marias new X stuff looks exactly the fucking same: like hot dogshit. They’re very varied designs that somehow still manage look extremely samey.
>>19794891No way she'd be in the anime with those tits
>>19796120Never watched Xros Wars, huh? Go look up Mervamon, Bastemon and Lilithmon
>>19796174>Xros WarsHow do you even pronounce this? ex-rows wars?
>>19796174>>19796698Someone post the Lilithmon gifYou know which one
>>19796712Damn, I never would have guessed that.

>>19797005what the fuck was that. it was an alex jones shitpost come to life
>>19797177Are they literally giving Ogremon a Mega before they debut the rest of the main kids' Megas?
>>19797788thats ogremon's ultimate/perfect not mega
>>19797788That's his Perfect, mate, it's Rebellimon, it's from the Pendulums Zs.
Man, what a weird episode about consent.
>>19797827>>19798433 Here's the thing, he's fighting Boltmon who is a Mega, while Rebellimon's a stage lower. Makes me wonder if Rebellimon's gonna go to Mega to fight this one and Taichi's just along for the ride
