Too lite for what is supposed to be a key fight
11 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

The entirety of this episode is just the rematch with Craniamon, which had much potential for excitement. After all, everyone on the team has achieved the burst mode, and Craniamon is one of the few distinct members of the Royal Knights.

Sadly, this fight is peppered with hindrances, foremost of which being the poor pacing. Not only is there a great amount of talking, but it does not even amount to interesting exchanges. What we get are mere exclamations on human potential, perseverance and the oath made to King Drasil, all of which has become much of a muchness. I'm beginning to wonder why Gotsumon's return was deemed so necessary, because this episode would have been far more tolerable without his spectator shenanigans.

For some reason, Marcus sees the need to exhaust every form and weapon, as ShineGreymon is the form involved in much of the episode, even though it has been made abundantly clear that he cannot compete with a Royal Knight. Clearly, the writers' intention was to fill time before the rest of the team showed up.

Even with Craniamon's new weapon and the involvement of the team at the height of their powers, this fight is just too routine. That would otherwise be forgivable, but this is supposed to be a key victory, not some random skirmish from a filler episode. Positive points include the animation quality, especially during the climax of the fight, and Craniamon's reaction to defeat. Not only does it highlight his honorability, but it is perhaps the only case of earning respect through fighting that actually works in this season.
