Digimon Ghost Game Episode 1 “New Sense Mystery! “Mouth Sewing Man” After School”
Digimon Ghost Game Episode 1 Review
The opening, ‘Faction’, is so catchy and all the characters are super likable, especially Gammamon’s little wings!
A bunch of students are talking on social media about hologram ghosts that have appeared. Mostly about a man with a stitched up mouth. A girl collects her bag and a Clockmon appears, asking her the time. Clockmon hits the girl and we see the girl age suddenly.
Ruri wants to look for the sewn mouth man and we then meet Hiro who has his basic friend want to copy his homework. I swear his friend is a trope in so much shounen anime. The two then talk about the sewn mouth man showing up. Super great that the ‘goggle kid’ is a smart character.
Their dorm leader and senpai shows up. Hiro asks about his bandages. He seems terrified of the mouth sewn man when Hiro’s friend wonders if he’s a victim.
Hiro cooks dinner for his father, and then realises his father is missing. I’m getting Lain feels from the Dad. Hiro’s friend wants to investigate where the student went missing so they go into the lecture hall. The clocks then start messing up and a voice asks them what the time is.
Clockmon appears and attacks Hiro’s friend and is about to attack Hiro when a teacher shows up. Kiyoshirō later gives a tailsman to Hiro to protect him and hopes he isn’t cursed.
Hiro finds a bunch of Vital Bracelets and tries a bunch of dim cards but each one he tries says it’s just a back up. A Black Tailmon shows up and leaves. Hiro then meets Gammamon.
A hologram of Hiro’s dad appears and says the the Digital World is cyberspace. I love how Gamammon is eating his Dad’s leg. His Dad says that Gammamon is his little brother. Hiro’s phone goes off and Clockmon appears.
Clockmon and Gammamon start to fight. Gammamon is injured and Hiro remembers Clockmon’s time ability and throws a stick with a chestnut, which grows. Gamamon attacks and Clockmon flees. Gamamon says he got power from Hiro.
