Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 51 Review

All the chosen are completely exhausted from the battle. Koshiro gets a call from Garbamon who then shows Koshiro the crest of knowledge symbol. The children then go into a forest with television displays on the trees. Oh no if they’re going tree of life Yggdrasil with this I will be not amused.

They meet Garbamon who has met Wisemon, who is tiny for some reason. Gomamon says that maybe Wisemon and Joe will get along. Mechanorimon show up AS DOES BOKOMON WHO IS RIDING THEM.


The children are brought to a room with the children’s crests, and they all recognise them as the symbols on their Digivices. Wisemon calls them crests. Fifty one episodes in. Each child approaches their crest, Koshiro just thought it was an icon to identify each owner of the Digivice.

The crests start reading the children and I guess they all have a memory of being younger children with these symbols.

Joe says that the evil is over, but Wisemon says that there’s a great catastrophe to come. Milli was just a stepping stone. Garbamon says that all of the events in the real world is due to this other evil.

OH BOY SOUNDBIRDMON ARE BACK! I was wondering what happened to them. A pink blob is eating everything, which I guess is Burpmon, but looks like Kirby, Pucchimon comes to tell the group of the events – Wormon and the digimental of kindness by the way, Was in the 02 CD Drama where the children get their DigiMentals mixed up.

Burpmon wants to eat the crests. Agumon evolves to Greymon. Palmon evolves to Togemon, Gabumon to Garurumon, Biyomon to Birdramon, Tentomon to Kabuterimon, Gomamon to Ikkakumon..but Patamon and Tailmon can’t evolve. I guess this will lead into their evolution episodes that will occur later likely,

Burpmon keeps eating the attacks and getting bigger AND THEN EATS GARVAMON WHICH IS UNFORGIVABLE….but ends up spitting him out as Burpmon has a preference, apparently. So that’s good.

Greymon, Birdramon, and Kabuterimon evolve to perfect to throw Burpmon outside., Lilimon, WereGaurumon, and Zudamon show up with garbage data, which overloads Burpmon and causes him to blow up in a really gross way.

The children then return to the crests and get arrows pointing in different direction on each DIgivice..so I guess we have a separation arc. Tachi’s is the only one that’s moving all over the place..maybe because he already has his evolutions unlocked.

Koshiro decides to stay behind, we then learn that Tailmon and Patamon are exhausted. Joe and Gomamon remember the hot springs and they decide to take Patamon and Tailmon there.

In the encyclopedia, we are learning about Holydramon – she only appears when there’s evil,Koshiro wonders if she’d appear if he did something wrong and wonders if she would show up if he painted stripes on Tentomon’s wings. Hououmon is next!

Rating for Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 51


It’s nice that the debuted Burpmon in the anime after over a decade, it’s a shame that this episode promised plot but gave very little other than a reminder that we still have more than 10 episodes to go.
