Oh they knew exactly what they were doing with Timemon's design.

Also, is there something i'm missing with Pink Cucumbers?

Kind of figured that these two would mostly be filler-ish but we still did get some good growth from characters, especially one that we really don't know a ton about yet. It's also nice to see Eri actually sing and do more idol-ish things and some possible hints as to why she headed down this path.

Ep 17 gave us a pretty blatant parody of a certain cultural fad from 2016 but more importantly, also some good backstory for how Yujin and Haru (being both very different personalities) met and became friends. Nice downtime material for sure.

Because, Toei being Toei, I'm pretty sure things are about to ramp up next episode.

Two points;

1) Now that we have an Appmon that is basicaly the black gear generator, that means, theoreticaly, they can do away with the source of the virus at any point

2) It's kinda intresting to note that, besides Takato, that Yujin is more the sort to be a Digimon series protag than Haru.

Also, kinda getting bored of the "Truely you're an ogre, You're actually an orge, tho" bit, that's getting repetative.

I've been noticing a lot of characters have some pretty repetitive catch phrase use "Groovy? Not Groovy?" "Big Bang Punch" and I'm not really a fan of it

Theres at least one early episode where the animation is held together entirely by the reuse of the BIG BANG PUNCH animation.

This is a really strong set of episodes honestly. While I'd argue that 19 is probably in the Top 3 of the series so far, 20's not bad either. It was unfortunately going to be a decline from the previous episode, but it's still a good character piece that gives us more information and a bit more background on Astora. Both (actual episode spoilers for these two episodes, please beware)new Ultimate Appmon are nice upgrades on their designs and theming while still feeling like big jumps up in power. The pattern looks like it'll be continuing for the next couple of episodes as well so this is definitely an exciting part of the show moving forward.

Really, all it was missing was the Wada Koji('s estate? I think he had passed at that time...) aproved To Ultimate Evolution image song. but this show is gunning to be its own beast so fair play to it.

That said, I do apreciate how a) They've despensed with the obvious re: L Corp and Leviathan (It would blow the mind of the 10 year old kid in Japan whose native language isn't English, tho though) and b) They're turning Leviathan into a more active threat by having Mienumon sabotaging and beating competition to make a presense in the real world. I sort of wish they introduced Waffle sooner in that regard but oh well.

Also, still loving Astora and his father's relationship. His father isn't fanaticaly pushing him to take up the Tea-School poisition full time and in turn he seems to mutually respect, and love, his father. It's an intresting inversion of how Parent- Digi-destened relationships of this type normaly work.

That all said, it would figgure that the series with the Half Brittish Digi-Destended would be absolutely shuned by Toei dub wise

As a single episode, 19 is probably still my favorite.

There's a bit of that, but for me it's mostly that Omegamon feel of having to take down thousands of targets in seconds to save the day

Oh of course, good point on that.
