Day 13: A moment you love
Uggggh this is so HARD…. I wish there were multiple categories for this…
Fine I’ll pick something! Drum roll please!
I think my favorite moment has to be this one. This was the first moment that had me practically screaming, because “DIGIMON IS BACK Y’ALL”. And regardless of whether or not you ship them romantically, Taichi and Yamato have one of the most quintessential bonds in the entire series, and this is the first time it really shines.
When I think about Digimon Adventure, it’s hard not to think about Taichi and Yamato; so much of the plot is dedicated to them and their developing relationship. And I was so pleased to see that relationship in 02 remain strong. So I had high expectations for tri – and this is the scene that proved to me that their relationship was going to be just as important in their high school years.
Like this whole scene just DOES it for me: Yamato supporting Taichi, the beautiful flashback to showcase how far they’ve come, Taichi steeling his expression because as long as they’re together they can conquer ANYTHING, Taichi then briefly supporting Yamato, Yamato’s perfect smirk. UGGGGGH and then when they link their arms against the wind!!! These two are brothers-in-arms, two sides of the same coin, the sun and moon, soul mates (there are platonic soul mates too), just…everything. Their bond was forged in battle and sworn by blood and I can see every bit of it in this scene.
And although they are disagreeing in every other way at this point in the show, they still stand side by side to take on the muthafuckin world and, and – and I need to stop, I’m getting emotional (there’s a reason these assholes are my OTP).
But honorable mentions!! (These are some of my favorite moments rather than moments I consider “the best”)
That hug killed me! Just look at Jou!! You know he needed a hug, and I bet his beautiful, squishy partner gives THE BEST hugs <3
I will never get over this moment. I want Gabumon’s face laser-cut into my tombstone.
Because I’m a sucker for awkward moments, and this is perhaps one of the most awkward things I’ve ever witnessed. The amount of second-hand embarrassment I felt was worse than Spiderman 3. Honestly, just kiss already.
