    The budget for tri. is definitely getting smaller. That's probably why the majority of the last part of this movie was evolution sequences. Not only did Piyomon evolve from Child to Ultimate, but then Patamon and Tentomon did the same. While Plotmon evolved to Tailmon. And speaking of Seraphimon's evolution being filler animation, I'm really disappointed in the fact that Seraphimon didn't even call out his attack during his revealing fight.

    There had to have been something else for Sora to have conflict with. Piyomon not liking her just because Sora stepped on her head was very weak reasoning. The other Digimon were perfectly fine with their human partners acting crazy around them (Tanemon thinking that Mimi would eat her; Takeru picking up Tokomon and talking about infections before saying that they're friends now). Sora, meanwhile, brought food and had a gentle approach towards Piyomon rather than trying to pretend as if everything was normal.

    I also really didn't like that Piyomon didn't like Sora for no good reason, but was curled up right next to Meiko at first introduction. I understand that Meiko didn't step on Piyomon, but that still doesn't explain why Piyomon cuddles with her. (I will also admit that Meiko has not impressed me in the slightest.)

    There also seemed to be some missed opportunities when the Chosen were all split apart from each other. There should have been more of the Digimon learning more about their partners from other Chosen, like how Agumon was asking Yamato about Taichi and learning about that part of him. (My bias will show here, but I also wanted them to do something more with Takeru being wounded at the Village of New Beginnings. I'll accept him being there alone, but...what was the point of him being hurt?)

    Between Gennai licking Sora's face and Gennai punching Sora with a cat, I was unable to enjoy the rest of the movie. That scene was really too out-of-place for a Digimon movie, and I wonder what the point of it was.

    Despite the faults of Loss, I'll still watch the rest of tri.! Considering what was revealed on part five's poster, things will get interesting (and hopefully better written)!

    A week late, but: What did you think of the recent tri. movie? I've seen it already, so feel free to talk spoilers.

    Much appreciated! And, yes, I'm pretty much in agreement there ... but I am looking forward to graduation. I've been writing for over a decade and I'm going through creative withdrawal in this medical program, XD. At least when I graduate I can focus on both. ^^

    The source would be awesome. I might have to give it a go later (yay medical school taking all my time), but it'll be nice if I could neatly organize all my fandom projects in the signature without it getting overly long.

    On a different note, though, your fanfics also look interesting. I'll have to check them out sometime when I'm not drowning in assignments. ^^

    Kind of random, but I was curious how you got your signature coded the way it is. I like the presentation and organization. ^_^

    Hey, good to see your story is going on and I just noticed the new chapter.

    Sorry I am not really able to provide much of a review of sorts for the time being, at least up until after Valentine's, as what little spare time I have is being spent on crunch planning and scene writing for a, well, Valentine's.

    But will totally see what can I do afterwards. I mean, someone has to stop those kids! :p

    Long posts are fine. :) I'm just super happy that our profiles are slowly becoming the only dedicated place on the forum to talk about Digimon!

    Jeff Nimoy has stated multiple times that he wanted to dub the movies differently. He wanted the first two to be together. For the third movie, he didn't want to edit it down, but have it at its full length and released as a direct-to-video movie. But the higher-ups wanted the three movies shoved together into one movie to best fit the hour-and-a-half typical run time, leaving audiences with a terrible mess.

    This morning, I spent some time wondering how much of Adventure's story would have changed if Hikari was written out (as originally planned). It evolved into an AU idea where the basic change is Takeru is the missing Chosen Child that they have to chase down. I don't know how well that idea would work, but it was a fun way to pass today's work shift!

    I have to ask if you're planning on watching/have seen the original version of the third Digimon movie. I just saw the dubbed version last night, and it reminded me of just how much of a mess that movie was. I'm interested in your thoughts about the original version.

    Also, yay on starting your writing of that Pokemon fic! :D I'm ashamed to admit that I put aside my reading of Digimon Campaign (started to read the Narnia series after reading another series of books that I enjoyed), so I'll be happy to catch one of your longer works from the start.

    If you look at the general outline for any Digimon season, you can see just how lopsided Zero Two's plot is compared to others. As you said with Adventure, the Chosen had already defeated Devimon and were almost to Etemon's defeat. (I've been listening to several retrospective Digimon podcasts, so Adventure's plot is fresh in my mind, despite not watching it in years.) It's the same for the other seasons.

    Tamers: In the Deva arc, and Juggernaut had been used
    Frontier: All the beast spirits had been found, and Orphanimon summons the Chosen to the Rose Morning Star
    Savers: The three main characters are in the Digital World, preparing to fight Merukimon

    Compare those to Zero Two, where the Kaiser isn't defeated for another four episodes (outlasting the previous season's first villain by eight episodes), and then right after that is the rush of several different plot points and enemies. Never mind the interruption during the Kaiser arc with Dagomon and the dark world.

    I just think a lot of how the Kaiser arc was plotted out and where it could have been condensed. With my rewrite (still stuck on chapter 2, by the way), I cut the Kaiser arc down from 21 episodes to 12 chapters, equivalent to an episode per chapter.

    It's also strange how they keep driving home the Ishida-Takaishi brothers' dynamic. It even came up again in tri, when Meiko talked to Takeru in the bath house. But the writers could have shared different information related to the plot of tri rather than the relationship between two characters that everyone in the audience knows already.

    The original version of the scene between Tailmon and Wizarmon actually did make me tear up, especially at the end there. I really hope there's some continuation to that character dynamic in tri, especially since it's such a large part of Tailmon's character and now she's been rebooted.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes! :D

    Episode 15 also has some of the worst animation I have ever seen. It doesn't look too bad in screenshots, but when it's in motion, it's really bad. Also, you can tell that this is a filler episode by the amount of evolution sequences. Between those and the amount of times the Digimon Analyzer came up for this episode, it's filler for the filler episode. Storyline couldn't even fill twenty minutes.

    With that ending scene, I think Miyako was just annoyed that Daisuke first joked about cutting of ShogunGekomon's hair, but now he's being all serious. That's the way I take it, but I'm looking at screenshots instead of rewatching the episodes. (I'm still getting through Data Squad.)

    How goes the tending of that plot bunny? My Ryo-less rewrite of my Digimon fic is going along...okay. I had to scrap my idea for chapter two, and skipped that to work on chapter three.

    I thought your VM was going to begin by telling me that Zero Two was just so stupid that you stopped watching it.

    Michael is a weird character. His father is a famous actor who is also white with blond hair and blue eyes (and apparently named "Michel J. Barton" if the movie poster for "Shoot the Darkness: Hell's Target" puts the staring actor in the first spot of the listing). As you said, he speaks fluent Japanese. Why that came about is a great mystery, along with how Mimi met him. Does she regularly meet the children of world-famous movie actors?

    It's been a while since I really sat down and looked at what Purity could actually mean for a Chosen Child to have. I still think that Iori should have gotten Purity, but only because I don't want to follow the idea that Miyako gets both Love and Purity just because those are the "girl" qualities. But yes, the dub made more sense for this episode.

    And looking through the screencaps of the episode where Daisuke's in New York, I completely forgot how American they made Michael's father. They gave him a cowboy hat and he's dressed up like a Texas ranger. Michael's whole family doesn't make sense.

    My birthday lacked in fireworks, but it also lacked on exploding buildings, so overall it's been good.

    Oh oops. This is what I get for doing some writing and then giving feedback to two fics, lol. It's fixed now.
