Opening thoughts

Hey remember the Tanemon village! The writer’s would like you to know that they remember it too!

It’s a Mimi episode, so these are usually really good, at least.

Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 55 Review

Mimi and Palmon have returned to the Tanemon village, Palmon says that they should have brought Golemon and the others with them. There is a school there now. Mimi asks where her servants are. Jijimon says that the Tanemon are all studying.

The Tanemon are happy to see Mimi, but Babamon, the principal shows up. Apparently some of the Tanemon have evolved to Lalamon because the school focuses on evolution. Babamon says she offers a free three day course. Palmon wants to join so she can evolve.

Mimiand Palmon both sign without reading the ToS. Babamon says she’ll call Mimi Mimimon from now on, they then have to do 100 laps of the track. A Lalamon says that it’s really harsh training.

Palmon evolves to Togemon and starts fighting Babamon, who uses the pirckles from Togemon for acupuncture. Togemon evolves to Lilimon, Babamon uses the flower canon for her backpain, and then fires it back, causing Mimi and Lilimon to run laps around the track. Lilimon points out that she should be flying.

Lilimon reverts to Palmon and Babmon says that they have to train to be stronger. They start attacking a target with Greymon on it. Mimi has to attack the target too, she throws a seed from Lalamon, but hits Babamon instead.

I love the other Digimon that are training – Coelamon, Drimogemon, and Tuskmon. The class then have to do hurdles over Babamon’s brooms. It’s fantasia. Mimi and Palmon try to escape, and Jijimon finds them and tells them to forgive Babamon.

Jijimon tells them of a student who became a delinquent., who ended up living. Babamon blames herself and makes the lessons harsh and strict. Mimi says that they should continue the course.

Turns out that Taichi and Agumon showed up too. For no reason. Then we get a training montage. However, Mamemon, BigMamemon, and a BanchoMamemon show up. The delinquent from Jijimon’s story five minutes ago. Agumon evolves to Greymon with his huge dumb animation sequence. Palmon evolves as a growing JPEG.

BanchoMamemon ends up trapping Babamon in his chains, but Togemon is able to save her from BanchoMamemon’s attack. Mimi calls BanchoMamemon a dropout and Mimi is ale to dodge attacks from BanchoMamemon because of her lessons from Babamon. Togemon evolves to Lilimon.

It’s the Karate Kid. Mimi tells Lilimon they will show Babamon the results of their training and Lilimon evolves but Rosemon is at least 50 times bigger than she should be. 

Rosemon hits BanchoMamemon with forbidden temptation and he decides to rejoin the school because he hasn’t shown what he’s learnt.

Taichi says that Jijimon is strong. That’s his contribution to the episode. Palmon gets a diploma, but Mimi does not. Mimi’s Digivice glows with her crest. That’s weird that nobody else’s did that after their evolution. Koshiro contacts them to say that Mimi has come closer to discovering the mystery of the crests.

We get a new ending theme song that shows Seraphimon and Ofanimon as well as the other children’s mega levels.

We’re learning about Rosemon in the encyclopedia. Palmon introduces us to her, thank god. She gives the anime jyoosama laugh and asks to be a queen. CresGarurumon next time.

Rating for Digimon Adventure 2020 Episode 55


Probably the worst (or second worst) Mimi episode in the series, it would have been better if Taichi didn’t exist.

Y’know, like a lot of this series.
