Glitched Order and Angelic Chaos
Ahh…I’m trying to give some of my drawings titles to remember by also to trying keep posts short and tidy. Anyways this was an accidental contrasting color scheme cause I for a moment forgot the Chaosmon here was colorful as heck. Also I do ship them together cause I thought they make a cute pair. I really liked how this came out and hope you all enjoy it to ^^
That’s hard because I don’t really have just one favorite. Tbh a lot of people talked about a lot good moments during this week, so I guess I’ll just ramble on about whatever comes to mind…
In adventure, I’d be hard pressed not to mention about episode 51. That big moment when Taichi is fighting off Piedmon and Yamato so gallantly comes to save the day.
It was this scene that made me go ‘okay. I can see why people like these two.’
Truthfully, this episode was a conclusion to Yamato’s character arc. We saw him face his inner demons, and all the ups and downs it took for him to really understand himself. Resolving his conflict by summing up his tension leftover from Taichi’s fight is a pretty poetic way of saying that Yamato is a changed person.
But holy shit. Seeing it in Japanese was way more intense than I initially thought. I mean, Yamato is cradling this broken battered Taichi. Yelling out things like ‘Taichi you’re my true friend! I won’t let our friendship be in vain!’ His crest is all glowing, Wargreymon is magically healed. And then Taichi’s character song that plays in the background!?!? God that song is ruined for me. I know it’s supposed to be about Taichi, and his faith in his friend. But it perfectly encapsulates what was going on between Taichi and Yamato at the time. And any time I hear that song, my mind jumps to this scene and automatically I think about how good they are together. I felt like this episode really said a lot about the two of them. Both as individuals, and as a unit.
The thing about Tri is that it doesn’t deviate too much from what happened in Adventure. There a little twist here and there, but for the most part it’s the same story. Which can be a good or bad thing depending on how you want to look at it.
I know that there are a lot of Taiyama moments in Tri, but what really grabbed my interest and held it…actually didn’t even involve the two of them interacting directly.
Depending on how you see Taichi, you might find his inner conflict OOC. But one thing I think is apparent, is that Taichi’s inner conflic mirrors the self turmoil that Yamato went under in the first season.
Yamato struggled with where he stood among the others, how to rely on them, how to be strong despite having so many weaknesses. Yamato had to learn his lesson the hard way, and he made a lot of bad decisions before really understanding himself.
That’s kind of what is happening with Taichi during Tri. Taichi is no longer someone who can turn a blind eye to consequence. And when he sees the staggering scale of the risks they have to take he’s worried what is going to happen when he makes a wrong move. And that’s the thing. He’s scared about him doing the wrong thing. It’s his fight. His digimon. His friends. If there is a ‘bad guy’ in all of what is happening in the fight for their world, there is a high chance that it might be him. And Taichi is having trouble facing that. Facing the possibility that he might not be strong enough to do anything about it.
Yamato got over his insecurities at the end of the first season. And yes, he is able to do this all by himself, but, because he had someone like Taichi there for him. Yamato would up growing faster than if he was all alone. They went from two hotheads who didn’t understand each other to partners who, (actually quite literally) join together to create a formidable team.
With Tri it’s the same thing but reversed. Now Taichi is the one with uncertainty and Yamato isn’t understanding him. I like the idea that Taichi needs to confront whatever is stopping him. But what makes my shipper-glasses shine, and also makes me go ‘hey they stole that from my fanfic’ is when Taichi’s internal conflict comes to surface because of Yamato. The idea that, because of how they are with each other, Taichi can’t really hide the truth from Yamato.
I liked it adventure. And let’s be real, I’m like it even more in Tri because now it’s centered around Taichi! Stuff like this really just feed the plotbunnies for me….
lol it’s the moments like these that make me wanna write stuff in the first place. I don’t really have any complaints with the parallels Tri has come up so far. But the moments that graze past Adv and still offer a little wiggle room for the viewer’s interpretation…yeah if I’m given that kind of power I’m gonna run with it. Lol, that’s why I get so hyper after seeing these movies.
