Digimon Tamers, Part The Last.

Posted by dotcom , Apr 03 2012 · 61 views

I forgot to make an entry about this, but I finished rewatching Tamers on Sunday. It's rare to see a show surpass all expectations, especially those tainted with the sickly beast that is nostalgia, but this one did. I can't say I loved everything about it (The actions of the secondary tamers, namely Hirokazu/Guardromon, Kenta/MarineAngemon and Xiaochun/Lopmon in particular were sadly limited), but it was still a very great series and I loved it.

One thing I can't say I'm fond of is the dub's changes to the names. I still don't get how they went from Li Jianliang and Li Xiaochun to Henry and Suzie Wong. That kind of change should be criminal.

Now I'm going to rewatch Digimon Adventure and 02. I'll probably try Savers and Xros Wars after that, since I've never really seen either.

For small kids (which the show is marketed to in America), it's probably easier for them to talk about 'Henry' rather than 'Jianliang'. I watched the sub and I still have no idea how to say that.

I tried watching Adventure 02 (sub) after Tamers and found that it just didn't stack up to expectations. I still prefer Tamers for the more mature story and characters. Although I will also confess my dislike for the latter season Tamers (with the obvious exception of Rio). They seemed like excessive characters who were mostly annoying and didn't further the story in any way. Especially the three you mentioned. At least Suzie got a Deva. Hirokazu and Kenta did nothing.

Savers is probably the best of them all.

Tamers is still beast.

The only thing I wish had happened in there is Guardromon actually turning back into Andromon to, y'know, help out, instead of being obligatory "Kazu is a tamer now!".

Also, gonna watch the movies?

@V1P2: I suppose it's easier, but they could still have used something more similar. And the change from Li/Lee to Wong is just downright unnecessary.

I do agree that Hirokazu and Kenta did practically nothing until the last episodes. I really think they could have used their characters better.

@DV: From what I've seen, Savers seems okay, but I sincerely do not like a bunch of the main Digimon. And adults with Digimon? That is simply silly.

@Dorek: Yeah, I do not understand why Guardromon never turned back to Andromon. Heck, they could have turned him all the way to HiAndromon, even if not through Biomerging. Still, the little Hirokazu and Kenta did when fighting the Agents towards the end was pretty cool.

I'll probably try and watch BoA, not sure about Locomon. The entire situation with the ending is just so unnecessarily confusing and contradictory I'm tempted to just ignore the other media and just go with my interpretation of it.

Haha, yeah, the ending there was unfortunately off-base, but that's okay. You got to see Gallantmon do Crimson Mode again. And you got to see the Behemoth again even though it had been previously destroyed!

Yeah, that movie was odd...
