    How goes, Astinus?

    Yesterday I saw two penguins have a fight. So life is entertaining I suppose!

    Well actually, to be fair to the others, I'll just skip your turn for now. Your turn will come again for the next round.

    That'd explain it, haha. Still don't have it on my phone as yet...

    That's forward thinking! I'm still getting used to talking to people at different hours, haha.

    Cool, I look forward to hearing this update including positive changes, and then I'll give mine. =)

    In hindsight maybe I shouldn't have sent something over discord, haha.

    Anyways hope all is well. Hi from Cape Town!

    Indeed! And the recurring joke that followed each instance was a gem as well. xP

    Ah, Apollomon was also my favorite Death General! The Hell's Field mini-arc in general was just so good. The parallels between Taiki's dilemma and Yuu's delusion really helped both of these characters face reality in their own way, which I thought was an amazing touch!

    Arrrgh! I know exactly how you feel... ;__; At one point, my sister and I tried to have a "binge marathon" of every Digimon series in Japanese, but we unfortunately couldn't finish because of time constraints. We managed to finish Tamers, Frontier, and Adventure (in that order), but then we had to stop somewhere in the middle of Zero Two. Didn't get around to Savers, either. *sigh* I'm really hoping to follow through with this marathon someday!

    That reminds me... I still need to get started on the Xros Wars manga, haha.

    Oh wow, I actually had a feeling that you might pick either Astra or Haru! xD

    But honestly, I'm with you 100% that every single one of them was endearing, and it's really hard to give the characters justice by ranking them, haha. But still, if I had to pick, I'd say Yujin was my favorite Appli Driver! I was already worried about him since the very first episode, especially when they hinted at his true identity. The mysteries surrounding his character made the show very intriguing to watch, and I constantly found myself wanting to know more about him. And by the time we got to the final episode... don't even get me started on that. ;__;

    As for the monsters, Offmon was easily my favorite! *o* Like, oh my goodness. That lil' puppy was both sooooo adorable and relatable at the same time! But Musimon was super cute too! I couldn't get enough of his "praylist," ahaha.

    YESSS, I really want to re-watch Appmon sometime as well! It's also my second favorite Digimon series, but it's extremely close to being tied with Xros Wars as my all-time favorite! If the Digimon franchise ever has another special crossover like Hunters, my biggest wish would be for Haru to meet Taiki! They'd be such amazing friends, you wouldn't even imagine! Taiki represents everything Haru aspires to be, and I bet meeting Taiki would certainly remind Haru of Yujin... which could potentially be heartwrenching, depending on how you interpret the finale of Appmon.

    Also, I think a character like Haru would have been the absolute perfect protagonist for Digimon Hunters (rather than Tagiru), but I digress, haha...


    I forgot about Afro Man until I saw a picture of him on Tumblr and then I remembered how much I enjoyed the "NOOOOOOOOO!"
    LOL, that guy was hilarious. I love how we would sometimes have a perfectly normal crowd of people, and then one person turns around just so we find out that he was Afro Man all along. xD (I think he was even disguised as a surgeon at one point...)

    I've been meaning to ask you this for quite some time: Who's your favorite character and/or Appmon in Digimon Universe? All of the characters are just amazing, so I'm really curious to know who you liked the most! ^_^

    Beg your pardon, I've been compulsively shouting that at everyone I encounter today (not really, but I'm pretty stoked all the same). Here's my actual reply to your message:

    I hope the sequel is an adaptation of Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Mars with Yamato and Gabumon added to the cast. For real though, my feelings on whether more Digimon Adventure is actually a good thing will depend on how confident I feel about its quality moving forward after I watch tri part 6. To have the whole thing fresh in my head and give it a fair shake, I've been rewatching it in English; going to see part 5 in the theater on Thursday. My overall opinion is still that tri has had an astoundingly poorly conceived and structured narrative, probably worse than 02 in that respect. I just hope that ep. 6 gives me some answer to the question of why Takeru and Hikari have not asked at any point, "Should we text Daisuke or those other friends-for-life of ours?" If the writers wanted to ride solely on nostalgia for Adventure, even retconning 02 would have been a better idea than taking this bizarre middle road. And that's not even getting into all this Yggdrasil, Homeostasis, and Evil Gennai nonsense. Having not rewatched 4 & 5 yet, I do not remember who's trying to destroy which world(s) or why. That means the series is too obtuse for Digimon. If I wanted an anime that impenetrable I'd watch Garden of Sinners again and at least get some thought-provoking ideas and actual animation out of it.

    That kind of turned into a mini-review of Tri, whoops. Hope they have a better budget and find better writers for any sequel(s). And don't worry, more 02 reviews are coming! (getting close to the end, too!)

    Lol, that's awesome.

    Sometimes I wonder, "Am I overthinking Digimon?" and then I remember, "No, of course not, there's no such thing as overthinking Digimon."

    I'm actually really glad to hear that if they're providing some help. Speaking of which, if you're ever looking for a beta-reader for your 02 rewrite, I'd be interested. Anyway, the review train (review Trailmon?) rolls on today:

    Episode 29:

    This episode features the slowest Dokugumon of all time. Seriously, here's everything that happens in the time it takes Dokugumon to fail to reach Iori, Daisuke, and Ken: Iori gets paralyzed from indecision, Daisuke and Ken convince him to use his free hands to call for help, Iori slowly types a message to Miyako, Miyako responds, Iori slowly types a separate message to Hikari and Takeru, they respond, Iori notices AC unit, tells plan to Daisuke and Ken, Ken soccer-passes a chunk of wood to Daisuke who kicks it at the AC unit, AC unit turns on, warms up, and blows away the web. And the whole while they keep cutting back to Dokugumon slooooowly making its way to them. It's ridiculous. Something that's not ridiculous is the gambit where they cancel out the flute's sound with a giant computer. Cool, creative, and actually kind of educational. Back to ridiculous, Mikako and Shurimon can effectively disarm Arukenimon with giant pepper-shakers. It was pretty metal how Hikari and Takeru got her with live wires afterward, though.

    Anyway, the main thing in this episode is the first real appearance of Jessie and James Arukenimon and Mummymon. The question of, "Can we kill an evil Digimon if we have no way of stopping it?" comes up again and this time it's not a fake-out (Arukenimon isn't a dark tower). It's still a missed opportunity because when the question comes up Arukenimon isn't actively doing anything like trying to destroy a dam and drown folks, so the stakes that made the question interesting and suspenseful the first time aren't really there. Then Mummymon comes in, beats them silly, and the writers get to punt on the question yet again. (Shouldn't Hikari and Takeru be like, "You know, we killed Vamdemon ****ing dead and don't regret it at all, so..." ?) Back to Iori's character arc, he's key here in coming up with the computer idea, even though it's Miyako supplying the actual technical skills. So +1 Knowledge Points to Iori but +3 to Miyako. This also looks like the real turning point in his attitude toward Ken after Ken saves him from falling, and this time when he talks about who owes whom it seems more in line with his code and less nasty. Last thing, I forgot how skeevy Mummymon is, eesh.
