Digimon Ghost Game had a fairly strong start, but can this strength continue on?
Digimon Ghost Game Episode 2 “The Mystery of the Museum”
Digimon Ghost Game Episode 2 Review
A man has missed the last train and is walking home but is grabbed by Mummymon. A homeless man drops his beer and has witnessed this.
Gammamon bites Hiro to wake him up. Gammamon is hungry so Hiro grabs him a burger from the cafeteria. Hiro asks Gammamon where his Dad is. Gammamon just points and then Hiro asks what Digimon are. Gammamon wants more food so Hiro leaves to get more. We see Gammamon’s wings after Hiro asks Gammamon if he can open the door. So for once we don’t get a Guilmon situation because Hiro realised that his Digimon would escape.
Meanwhile, Ruri is at the museum investigating Mummies because of some rumours. One of Ruri’s friends sees one move slightly at the corner of her eye.
Back to Hiro, Hiro has Gammamon in his backpack and sees a Chuumon. Hiro realises that everyone can see Gammamon when a bunch of women wonder if it’s an AI hologram.
Hiro goes to the shops and introduces Gammamon to a shop attendant as an AI Hologram. Gammamon reaching for the food is so precious.
Hiro goes to the park to feed Gammamon and it’s so adorable. Hiro is taking notes about how Gammamon says things a little differently like spicy is scary.
Hiro goes home and researches the various hologram ghost rumours. Gammamon has a nightmare and Hiro realises that these hologram ghosts must be Digimon.
Mummymon emerges at the museum and approaches an office worker and grabs her, promising her eternal life and says how darkness is the path to eternity. He brings her to where he has the others.
Hiro’s friend is back, apparently he was hitting on a nurse and had to leave the hospital. Kiyoshiro notices Hiro getting windows repaired and asks if he’s getting tampered glass. I love him so much.
Hiro goes to the museum and there’s some weird English of ‘Mommies of the world’. Gammamon helps him break in after dark.
Mummymon is absolutely more horrifying than in 02. Gammamon and Mummymon fight and Hiro gets wrapped up and taken to where the others are.
The horrified and helpless cries of the other trapped people is really creepy. Gammamon is able to track down Hiro because of his scent and saves Hiro!
Mummymon calls the captive humans his patients and loses his temper and starts shooting around. Hiro asks him if he’s a doctor and says how he’s got the wrong idea.
Mummymon got the wrong idea of mummification. Mummymon shoots Gammamon and explains that he’s rescuing exhausted humans. Hiro calls out for Gammamon
Gamamon remembers all the food he ate and wants to eat chocolate more with Hiro and evolves to Betel Gammamon in a super cool evolution sequence. I love how his vitals load up before he evolves.
Hiro says that Mummymon is doing the wrong thing and how humans don’t resurrect they just shrivel up and die. Gammamon reverts and says he’s hungry. Mummymon frees the humans and Hiro says he should go to a hospital to research how to heal humans. Half battle half discussion. I like that.
Hiro then sees Ruri and Angoramon walking down the street.
Rating for Digimon Ghost Game Episode 2
Another strong episode! The animation is absolutely beautiful and the evolution looked so pretty and felt really earned. It was a sweet moment between the two.
