Quotes

Mummymon: Its mind boggling, we had the perfect opportunity to nip those kids in the bud and he stopped us, what was he thinking?
Arukenimon: He's two tacos short of a combo platter.
Mummymon: I can't help but remember that conversation with BlackWargreymon... He's a Digimon and Oikawa's a human, so what are we supposed to be - chopped liver? Virtual viruses? Horror film wannabes? I'm telling you my dear this giving me a vast feeling of inferiority!

A great demonstration of how much the series has matured through its run
26 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

The sullen nature of this arc continues to escalate, and with this episode the series essentially leaves behind its upbeat nature and plunges into despair. The purpose here is twofold. One, to shed further light on Oikawa's motivations, and two, to conclude the story of the cynical BlackWarGreymon, both of which work surprisingly well together because it is clear that the creations that have resulted from Oikawa's work are beginning to haunt him.

Watching this, I was reminded of "Ikkakumon's Harpoon Torpedo", where Joe became the most fleshed out and promising member of the group. This final villain has thus far been built up as an unsettling figure, and the revelations here shift this image from a power hungry maniac to a lonely individual nearly devoid of hope, left only with his obsession with the digital world. There's real poignancy to it, not necessarily because it draws sympathy, but because it further demonstrates the toll that a darker path has taken on this person. Furthermore, this history works in harmony with the running themes of obsession and loneliness demonstrated in the stories of other antagonists, like BlackWarGreymon and the Digimon Emperor. I think there's something to be said about the fact that Oikawa, a man overcome with grief, selects Ken, also overcome with grief, to be a tool in his plot.

The atmosphere of many scenes complements the gloom of the situation, and some moments are pretty creepy. The shadowy scenes at the bridge and cemetery, the bats in the trees, Noriko screaming as a red aura emerges from her…it's pretty intense.

I will be the first to say that the conclusion to BlackWarGreymon's story is done well. There is clear follow-up to the advice he received from the rookie digimon in the previous episode, as he uses the insights he has gained about his own life to try and knock some sense into Oikawa. The whole confrontation is intense and his question about why Oikawa created Arukenimon and Mummymon is one of my favorites of his lines. Having him save Cody's grandpa is appropriate, since it mirrors the way that Cody's father died, and fully demonstrates the value for life that he has embraced, which he tried to reject earlier. The scene of him disintegrating and sealing the gate packs quite a wallop, and is bolstered by the soundtrack.
