Digimon Adventure Tri: Reunion Review | Otaku Movie Anatomy

Otaku Movie Anatomy hosts Michelle ChubbyBunny, Yume Ninja, and guest host Maxwell Song review Digimon Adventure Tri: Reunion! Three years after the events of Digimon Adventure 02, in an unknown dimension, Daisuke, Miyako, Ken, and Iori are beaten by an unknown Digimon. Taichi Yagami is now in high school, downhearted that none of his friends are able to come to his soccer game and feels that they are slowly drifting apart. Meanwhile, strange occurrences are causing electronic devices to malfunction across Odaiba. Minutes before Taichi’s match begins, a Kuwagamon that had been causing the malfunctions suddenly appears, soon taking physical form and causing collateral damage to the city. Just as Taichi is cornered, his Digivice shines and his old partner Agumon appears while digivolving into Greymon to fight the stronger Kuwagamon. As the two Digimon end up traveling through portals to an airport in Haneda, Taichi is given a ride by his substitute teacher, Daigo Nishijima. As more Kuwagamon appear, Taichi is joined by the other DigiDestined and their Digimon partners, with the exception of Joe, who defeat two of them, while a mysterious hand appears and destroys the last one. Following the battle, as the DigiDestined look over the strange occurrences leading up to Kuwagamon’s appearance, which are believed to be caused by distortions in space, Taichi and Yamato pay a visit to Nishijima, who reveals himself to be part of an organization monitoring Digimon activity, particularly infected Digimon like the Kuwagamon that appeared. As Koushiro develops ways to provide easier access to their Digimon partners and seek out digital disturbances, Taichi begins to fear that people could get hurt as a result of his actions as a DigiDestined. The next day, a mysterious black Digimon known as Alphamon appears, seemingly targeting a Digimon under the care of Meiko Mochizuki, a girl who recently transferred into Taichi’s class. With Alphamon proving too powerful for the other Digimon, Yamato urges Taichi to stop running away from his fears, and together they manage to drive Alphamon off with the power of Omegamon. Afterwards, Meiko reveals that she is also a DigiDestined with her partner, Meikuumon, being the Digimon that Alphamon was targeting.
