In this episode, it’s amazing how quickly getting outmaneuvered and surrounded brings out the real personalities where nobody can think straight, everyone’s whining, and faulty technology leaves you paralyzed.
In this episode, an intense, dramatic rematch between Ogremon and Greymon! They’re interrupted by a Coredramon fleet… then Kabuterimon… then MetalTyranomon… jeez, does nobody respect the art of the duel anymore?!
In this episode, when you think of who’s going to arrive in the Digital World loaded with gear and ready to embrace a partner and attack every challenge head on, the first name that comes to mind is, naturally, Sora Takenouchi.
In this episode, the coordinated tower run to free the Appmon is amazing and all… but did they just say everything that happened this season was Leviathan’s plan? That… kind of undermines everything, doesn’t it?
In this episode, Leviathan marks the city, disintegrates everyone in town, and eats literally all of the God grade Appmon. But Haru’s back on his feet with a protagonist’s spirit. So… that counts as a draw, right?
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!
