yamato's epilogue

Let’s talk about the Chosen Children’s Careers in the Epilogue for a second

Okay so out of the 12 I’m actually very happy with 5 of them and can tolerate 3 of them

Jyou becoming a doctor - okay duh we all knew this was coming, A+

Koushiro becoming a digital world researcher - This is basically the only job they could have possibly given him, A+

Miyako becoming a stay at home mom - sort of an unpopular opinion but I love stay at home mom Miyako. I think it’s really cute and she’d be really good at it. I also think it is a huge step forward for her character. Throughout the show she is seen to be kind of selfish. She indicates that she’d like fewer siblings and doesn’t want to help out at her families business, but then she grows up to give everything she is and has to her family. I think that is really wonderful and honestly it’s one of my favourite Chosen Children Career Choices! A+++

Ken becoming a police officer - this kid has a strong sense of justice and a very strong desire to protect people from evil. This job makes a lot of sense for him. In my opinion it also gives a nice conclusion to his relationship with Iori. Iori did not like Ken and could not forgive him for what he had done because he also had a very strong sense of justice which came from the history he had with his father who was a police officer, A+

Iori becoming a criminal defense attorney - this career is actually very well thought out. Iori has a very strong sense of justice and really dislikes people who have done wrong. He is unable to forgive them or see how they could have been corrupted and show sympathy for them. However this begins to change as he gets to know Ken and really changes once he learns Oikawa’s history. He is the only one who stays back to try to help Oikawa reach his dream of entering the digital world after the battle with MaloMyotismon. To have him end up as a defense attorney shows how much this child’s views of the world have changed, they are no longer black and white & good and evil. A+ 

Hikari becoming a teacher - this seems perfectly reasonable

Daisuke having a Ramen Cart - He says he wants to do that near the end of 02 and who am I to argue with him… 

Takeru becoming a novelist - I know a lot of people dislike this one but his mom is shown to be a journalist so I don’t think it’s too weird to have her son follow in her footsteps after growing up watching her write for so long… plus you can’t say he doesn’t have endless amounts of material to write about… also he was the youngest of the original seven so it makes sense that he would be the one to write about the digital world since he was looking at it with the widest and most innocent eyes… I’m not saying it’s perfect but I don’t hate it either

As for the other four, I honestly don’t hate the careers but feel they have been horribly mismatched with their respective children. Like somewhere in the writing process there was a game of broken telephone and the wrong careers ended up with the wrong kids

Taichi becoming an ambassador to mediate between the Digital and Human worlds - this should have been Sora’s career! She spent most of the show mediating between Taichi and Yamato and calming everyone down, she is pretty perfect for this position 

Sora becoming a fashion designer - pretty no brainer that this should have been Mimi’s career

Mimi becoming a cook - Ya this should have been Yamato’s career… he’s been shown to be a good cook and that he enjoys cooking

Yamato becoming an astronaut - This should have been Taichi’s career!!!! He was the one with the telescope in Adventure, he was the one with the pilot goggles indicating an interest in flying and piloting an aircraft. Plus he has a huge love for exploring which is seen pretty clearly in Adventure. This job, in my opinion, is absolutely perfect for Taichi and I will forever be upset that they gave it to Yamato, fucken Yamato, are you fucken serious, fucken Yamato

Just wanted to get this out there. It mainly stemmed from the fact that I’m really annoyed that Yamato became an astronaut instead of Taichi, seriously never ever getting over that. Never ever ever!! Seriously if Taichi had of ended up an astronaut that would have been so wonderfully foreshadowed throughout the series, because he could lead his crew into unknown worlds and discover new things and just AAAAHHHHHHHH he’d be like fucken Captain Kirk OH MY FUCKEN GOD

One of the criticisms of the Epilogue I just don’t understand is when people complain about Yamato and Taichi’s future jobs by saying things like, “Why didn’t Yamato become a rock star??” and “Why didn’t Taichi become a football player??”

Sure, I think it’s legitimate to argue that their actual Epilogue professions — diplomat and astronaut — had no foreshadowing or development in canon at all. But I really don’t understand why people feel that making them a “rock star” and a “professional footballer” would be better. It just wouldn’t be realistic either!

Honestly, people totally overestimate the success of Yamato’s musical career. Yamato was NOT a rock star in Middle School. The TEEN-AGE WOLVES were not a professional band.

Yamato and his bandmates wrote songs (we don’t see them releasing CDs in canon, although a a single with their songs was released “extra-universe”) and they played a few concerts — but it was probably a Odaiba-only thing. They weren’t that successful or famous.

I mean, Episode 38 of 02, the TEEN-AGE WOLVES don’t actually hold a televised solo concert on a huge arena when they’re in 8th grade — the band just enters a Middle School band contest! They’re literally just one of many teenage amateur bands in the area!

(In one of the CD Dramas, it’s revealed that Yamato’s father also had a band in when he was in school — and guess what Hiroaki is now? A TV reporter. That’s what happens in real life.)

As for Taichi — in 02, it seems clear he is no longer playing football, and certainly not on a professional level. Even in Adventure, it’s never really stated that Taichi was an exceptionally talented player (like Ken was in 02) — only a very good one.

In real life, at 14, most aspiring footballers are semi-professional already. Let’s just say that if Taichi had any prospects of having a professional career at that age, he wouldn’t have the time to hang around the younger kids all the time. Taichi would be extremely busy with training and weekly matches, and he’d be signed by a professional club already.

We have no signs of that at all in 02 — Taichi’s just a normal student. We don’t even see him play on the Middle School team. So thinking there was still a chance for him to become a professional footballer in the future is silly. Furthermore, the Epilogue takes place when Taichi’s 39 years old, so at best he would be a retired football player then. Hardly a great ending for our leader…

(If anything, I think 02 implies that Sora had a semi-serious sports career. They actually show her practicing tennis and go to tournaments, and that’s presumably why she has no time to help the younger kids as often as Taichi, Koushirou, and even Yamato do.)

So the series never really tells us that football and music were anything more than hobbies for Taichi and Yamato when they were 13/14 — so why did people expect them to become professionals as adults? It does makes sense that they grew up to have completely different careers.

There are plenty of valid reasons to be critical of the Epilogue, I just don’t think this is a logical argument against it.
