In this episode, knowing we’d be overcome with the urge to compare and contrast every little thing this reboot does to the original series opener, at least it has the foresight to be objectively better in every single way.
In this episode, Cloud is revealed to have turned his back on humanity after he becomes distraught when the social media app he created becomes toxic. Even after kidnapping Yujin, this makes him slightly less evil than Mark Zuckerberg.
In this episode, the kids don’t know what a phone booth is, someone actually becomes invincible in a digital world, and instead of one Digimon replacing memories with a new confrontational attitude, it’s four Appmon! Take that, Adventure!
In this episode, the team is enchanted by L-Corp’s AI-driven town that feels like Leviathan’s fantasy world and encounter a guy that sounds exactly like L-Corp’s CEO preaching Leviathan’s visions. A connection between L-Corp and Leviathan? Nah…
In this episode, Gatchmon feels crowded out by Offmon’s arrival and runs away from home. Dokamon follows to manipulate Eri’s emotions and Musimon does it for the lolz. So… not the most convincing after-school special.
In this episode, after Adventure stepped dangerously close to the line and Savers danced around it twice, Appmon smashes through completely and gives us a full-fledged insufferable recap. But at least the new opening’s a banger!
In this episode, all the noise over gathering the Seven Code Appmon comes to a head as the mighty Dantemon is summoned! He beats the monster of the week, sings a song, opens a door, and is promptly discarded.
In this episode, let’s take timeout from last week’s critical cliffhanger to spend the entire time focusing on Rei nostalgically thinking back to the time he got the crap kicked out of him by an Appmon in a gimp suit.
