Originally I had a lot of issues with Jyou’s dilemma, especially him questioning why they were chosen. Because he got over that question in adventure, so much so that in 02 he delivers one of my favourite lines “People call us the Chosen Children, but really we were the ones who chose”.
But this line from him in Ketsui actually makes me feel a lot better about it. Because, it’s true that just because you get over something once, or think you’ve gotten over it, doesn’t mean it’s not a question or problem that won’t return.
And I think that is part of the reason Taichi defends Jyou continuously throughout both Saikai and Ketsui, because he’s going through similar issues. Taichi’s behavior in Tri isn’t new, and even though we, and likely Taichi himself, thought he got over it back in Adventure, he’s having to deal with it again.
I think it’s really important that Taichi and Jyou are the first to arrive on the scene to face Meicoomon.
And I feel like this is why Jyou pats Taichi on the back in Soshitsu after he expresses doubts about their ability to save Meicoomon
