    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.

    Cheers!

    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.

    I can't find where you mentioned it, but weren't you reading Lost Boys by Card? I wanted to know what you thought of the book, since it's one of my favorite Card books, even though I can't reread it. The ending kills me every time.

    I'm still looking forward to your thoughts on episode 13. (I even went out and bought the complete works of Lovecraft to figure out what it's all about!)

    I started to read your fic, and I'll write down any comments as I get through each chapter. Since it's been so long, it's like I'm reading Digimon Campaign for the first time again!

    Sorry for the sudden disappearance. Life got in the way. Even though I did still have enough time to start watching Digimon Data Squad.

    Between episode 4's need to have Miyako held back to have her D3 looked at and episode 11's need to have Miyako held back to sort through her feelings (which did take a very short time), it seems as if Zero Two is a prime example of the saying that the need of the logic is second to the need of the plot. There's a lot in Zero Two that could be looked at in that way. There doesn't even need to be big plot changes to fix the logic.

    Quote:
    To do this they try to make it look like the issue is that Daisuke's unwilling to put himself in harm's way, and it doesn't work at all.
    Especially in the context of episode 8, where Daisuke offered himself to the Kaiser in exchange for his friends. So not only was this episode apparently written by someone who didn't pay much attention to Adventure, it was written by someone who didn't pay much attention to characterization from three episodes ago.

    And yet people argue that Zero Two doesn't have any plot holes.

    Speaking of sports, I won't be able to watch an episode on Friday because the Washington Nationals are in the playoffs and I've got a ticket!
    As a New York Mets fan, I can only shake my head at you for going to a Walgreens Nats game. :P At the very least, we can both cheer on the Nationals to beat the Dodgers, because I hate the Dodgers.

    How did you manage to score tickets?

    There's a subbed version of Digimon Universe's first episode. Just got done watching it.

    Found it! I'll quote the necessary part:

    Quote:
    Iori’s quest is one of better understanding the world around him. His thirst for knowledge is not external but internal. It’s not technical but philosophical. It involves human morality rather than computers. It doesn’t mean is less valid in any way or form, or “less deserving” of the crest, and for Iori is of extreme importance to understand the world around him in order to make educated choices.
    Also, apparently Daisuke, Miyako, and Iori are meant to represent Fire, Air, and Earth. So since Miyako represents Air, she needs the flying Digimon. Hawkmon was purposefully put under the Digimental of Love and couldn't be born from any other Digimental. This means that Miyako was forced into getting the Digimental of Love because she had to be paired with Hawkmon.

    This now makes me wonder how the story would have gone if Miyako was paired with Armadimon, and Iori was paired with Hawkmon.

    You're not the only one that feels that way about Iori. A lot of people--myself included--feel that he should have gotten Purity over Knowledge. (This is something that I wrote into my own fic, and I don't think that's changing in the rewrite. I like exploring Iori's character growth by having him no longer see the world in black-or-white. Since that was such a huge part of his characterization in the show.) I did see once on Tumblr an explanation as to why the Crest of Knowledge fits Iori, and I'm trying to find that so you can read it.

    That scene between Daisuke and Hikari in episode four further cemented by dislike of Hikari. I can understand Yamato getting upset at Daisuke for not liking Jun, because a.) Yamato only saw Jun as a decent person earlier that day and b.) Yamato has always had issues with sibling relationships. But I would think that Hikari wouldn't be so quick to put Daisuke down like that. She should have been the one to see Daisuke's side of things. I can only imagine how that scene would have gone if Miyako was there, since Miyako also finds her siblings annoying.

    Between that scene in episode four and the sled in episode five, I think the writers just force things along for plot reasons. Like they only needed the sled because the writers needed some way to show that Jou's into medicine still and to get Jou and Iori separated from the others.

    As you can see, I do not mind at all longer thoughts about Zero Two. Being able to discuss it with someone who isn't automatically going "Zero Two sucks because of vague reasons! And the epilogue!" is really refreshing.

    Please continue these. Because you know the epilogue is my favorite part of Zero Two, and I want to hear your thoughts on the Japanese version. And thoughts on the characterization of everyone.

    This is also making me want to rewatch Zero Two along with you, but HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I have no time.

    Also, I finally saw Confession!

    Pretty much just got home from it! I actually really enjoyed it as well! It was much better than I was expecting.

    I got chills when Brave Heart played.
