This is exactly the amount of I was expecting from a Digimon thread in the year of our lord 2017.

Someone please help me, I just caught up on Tri and I'm drowning in nostalgia.

TK got a lot of focus in Confession, though, with the whole Patamon thing, so him taking a back seat to Sora getting an actually interesting arc is fine by me. The presence of, say, Puppetmon would have made his presence feel more justified, but maybe they've got something planned that requires both Puppetmon and Piedmon to be around as villains.

I think Greymon is also more interesting and appealing, visually? "Big red dinosaur" is cool, yeah, but "big orange dinosaur with blue markings, and he's got a horned-helmet" is much more striking and unique, and that orange stands out more than Tyranno Red does.

It also occurs to me that Guilmon/Growlmon may be as much a shout-out to Tyrannomon as they are to Greymon.

Good quality plastic and a better paint job doesn't make up for the fact that it's basically a shellformer. Not for $70, anyways. I could see $40, maybe even $50 if they were really pushing it, but $70? Jesus gently caress, no. I could get a Figuarts for that price.

Admittedly, the actually-good WarGreymon Figuarts is $135, so maybe they're just keeping true to form. (And don't tell me it's about component quality, because the companion MetalGarurumon is $50.)

Edit I am getting unreasonably mad about children's monster toys.

Is still too expensive but drat if ain't pretty. It also does credence to the idea that WarGreymon was designed with the toy in mind and not viceversa. Same with Metal Garurumon.

Is going to be interesting to see how they work the rest of the Chosen Digimon.

Now this, this is a marked improvement on the original. Easily sold, here.


Also, you know what's always bugged me? When people get upset about the dub name Diaboromon. It is a literal translation of the Japanese name that also manages to dodge the censors. It's elegant and avoids all the usual complaints with dub name changes... and people still bitched about it.

What I'm saying here is that the Digimon fandom is awful and unpleaseable.

Personally, I think "Diaboromon" flows better when spoken aloud.

Conversation starter: What's everyone's favorite and least-favorite part of Tri so far? I think my favorite is Determination, and my least-favorite is Confession.

Determination puts focus on two of the most neglected Digi-Chosen-Destiny-Children and I particularly appreciate how Jou's angst all comes from getting pulled by his Reliability and responsibility in two different directions. Gomamon is a good boy, and even Meicoomon gets away without being too annoying. I wasn't surprised by Leomon's death, but I felt like it was well-justified.

Confession, on the other hand, is... a mess. Narratively, it can't seem to decide if it wants to be asking new questions or answering old ones, and not in any kind of way where the answers create further questions. It lays the groundwork for a couple of good moments in Loss (Himekawa's break being the best example), but oh my God, Confession was the movie that made me me understand the Meiko hate. Also, Meicoomon's evolution just being Anthro Boobie Meicoomon is both weird and lazy. Yes, that's exactly what our Mary Sue needed, an orange Renamon.

I kinda agree with Razor here. Obviously, it makes sense for a Child Digimon to have a childish view and personality, but here it's like they're being written by someone who really dislikes and doesn't spend any time around children. I can sympathize, but it doesn't make for likable characters. And that's really the crux of it, Agumon is just aggressively unlikable in Tri. I like how Patamon in particular is handled, Tentomon and Gomamon get out pretty okay, too, but everyone else's partner is either generic and forgettable or actively worse. (Which is a particular shame for Palmon, since this is my favorite writing/presentation of Mimi yet.)

That's... better, I guess? I mean, $60 feels less unreasonable than $70. Still a bit high, but if the component quality is actually as good as they're implying, it makes sense.

On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time, they milked some extra interest out of Agumon. I'll be more convinced if the Appmon art is also a pre-existing picture.
