Hey guys! Today I bring you another ‘first impression’ 🙂
After being bombarded on Twitter with screenshots of Adventures Tri, I finally got myself to turn on the Roku, which was living among cobwebs by this point, and sat myself down with some ice cream. Lyn may or may not have also been a force that pushed me towards my comfy chair.
I mean, it’s not like she was sending me in love emoji’s and was screaming out how much she was in love with Tai and TK and other characters. Nope, not doing that at all.
Anyways, when I first heard that this was going to come out I was pretty ecstatic. Whenever people ask ‘Pokemon or Digimon’ I am, without a doubt, a Digimon person. Like a lot of people probably did, I picked up Digimon as a child when it aired on Fox KidsTV. I watched the first season, second, Tamers, and Frontier. Both my brothers are fans and we were just all over the news of Adventure Tri.
So far there are only 4 episodes, which is apparently the first part of a 6 part film. The second part is scheduled for release next year on March 12th and is dubbed ‘Determination.’ According to the run-time, it’s 75 minutes long, so about another 3 – 4 episodes to look out for.
In the meantime, Reunion takes place 6 years after Tai and his friends were first transported to the Digital World and 3 years since the second Adventures season. I won’t go into too much detail in terms of events, otherwise I’d be telling you everything that happened, but essentially, Reunion is like the Digimon Movie. We have Digimon coming into the real world through distortions in space, our DigiFriends coming to fight the evil Digimon, and in general there is much chaos and destruction.
The major difference is that while some DigiDestined are all for fighting this new threat, our very lovable goggles-wearing Tai is in a state of doubt. Are they really doing the right thing? Are the fears and hateful words that normal everyday people feel and say justified? How far until they’ve gone too far?
