Loss Countdown Day 2: Best Moment of Sora Before Tri
I know that I said that Yamato’s Dark Cave scene was “probably
my favorite moment,” but my God do I love this scene where Sora sacrifices
herself to save Takeru and Hikari. I appreciate the Dark Cave scenes because they’re
so introspective, but in the following episode then actions speak louder than
words, and for me, Sora’s sacrifice speaks the loudest.
The obvious conclusion that most people likely come to after seeing Angemon in action next episode is that Angemon is OP. Which he is, no doubt about it. Later in the series when he starts joining the fray more often, he holds his own easily against Perfection and even Ultimate level digimon. Given that, from a strictly narrative perspective, it makes sense that the writers want to keep Angemon in reserve to build up just how powerful he is.
Beyond that, however, I think part of the reason why Patamon takes the longest to reach the point of evolving has to do with Yamato.
Consider that up until this point, any time Takeru has been in danger, that danger is never specifically targeted at Takeru. Yamato makes certain of that, always doing everything he can to ensure Takeru’s safety at all costs. This means that whenever Takeru is threatened, he is, by virtue of Yamato’s protectiveness, the LEAST threatened out of everyone.
This episode marks the first time Takeru will be in danger without the rest of the group ALSO in danger and without Yamato to shield him any way he can. Given that Patamon is exhausted and hungry (as established some 4 episodes ago), he wouldn’t have the strength to evolve just yet, and this drain on his self-confidence is likely not doing him any favors either.
I probably need this more than my kdrama list cuz I’ve seen so many animes that I’m starting to forget them.
