Episode 48 showed up how you can hype up something and have it feel completely meaningless.
Anyway here’s Millenniumon.
Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 49 “The God of Evil Descends, Millenniumon”
Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 49 Review
Milleniumon’s gem and Sepirotmon show up with a bunch of Vademon and seem to be doing something with the Cloud Continent. Leomon and Lopmon recognise the feeling as Miasma being release from the cloud continent. Milleniumon’s new body nears completion.
Hikari says ‘oniichan’ and Yamato asks if Gabumon can fight and then tells Sora and Koshiro to help him. Yamato tells Mimi, Takeru, Joe, and Hikari to stay put because the writers can only write certain characters.
The Digimon evolve to MetalGarurumon, Kabuterimon, and Birdramon. MetalGarurumon is so much larger than I remember.
Hikari begs Komodomon to take her to Taichi, but Joe says that Komodomon is hurt too. Meanwhile, a Griffomon shows up to fight Yamato’s group.
Tailmon is worried they don’t stand a chance when Milleniumon revives. Side note, I love the background noises of Griffomon and MetalGarurumon fighting.
Gomamon asks Joe to let him evolve and he feels bad because he just can’t rest when Taichi and Agumon stayed back. Komodomon is able to shake flowers that he picked up earlier to cheer up the group, which is really nice.
Mimi is worried too, but wants to make Hikari feel better and starts making a corsage. Meanwhile, MetalGarurumon and Griffomon are fighting and metalGarurumon gets pushed into the mountain and clearly must have died from that impact.
Birdramon evolves to Garudamon and Kabuterimon evolves to AtlurKabuterimon and hilariously just float off the screen. They attack the Milleniumon.
Back to Hikari’s group, Hikari is crying and Mimi asks her if she has any fun memories of Taichi, like birthdays, Christmas, or New Years. We get some cute shots of Taichi and Hikari as kids hanging out. Mimi says she likes it when Taichi smiles and says that her Grandfather has a stern face, but is lovely when he smiles.
Mimi likes people who smile and says that her grandfather says that he smiles when he’s around people he loves. Mimi says that she will believe Taichi is okay. This motivates everyone and Hikari wants to make a corsage. Milleniumon is revived, but so are Taichi and WarGreymon!
We’re learning about Nohemon in the encyclopedia. Kohsiro says is he’s fashionable and he’ll ask Tentomon about fashion. Next time it’s..Goddramon!?
Rating for Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 49
Apparently I gave this episode a 4/5 when I watched it for the podcast, and that’s wrong, so I’ve given it a 3 to correct errors of the past.
But maybe that’s just because I’ve now seen up to Episode 55 and seen how little Milleniumon actually mattered and how there was 0 climax or payoff.
Y’know, like every other big bad in this season.
