This time we get to meet Kiyoshiro and finally, Jellymon! I’m really looking forward to seeing the dynamic between these two!
So far the show has been an absolute delight, so hopefully episode 5 is no different!
I’m also interested in the mythology and religion aspect that this episode might have, judging by the preview.
Digimon Ghost Game Episode 5 “Divine Anger”
Digimon Ghost Game Episode 5 Review
There are power surges and snakes are emerging from the ground while Kiyoshiro is straight up being haunted. A VB appears in Kiyoshiro’s room and there’s writing in blood on the ceiling that say s’put this on’. Jellymon appears and inserts the dim. Jellymon demands to be called Jellymon-Sama and Hiro shows up.
Kiyoshiro programmed a virtual tailsman. He hacked a lot trying to get an alarm going off when hologram ghosts appear.
The partner Digimon appear worried. Apparently the blood writing is just ketchup. Kiyoshiro is a huge weeb who returned to Japan after graduating overseas.
Jellymon loves scaring Kiyoshiro. Majiramon then shows up. He’s huge/ A;sp Bitmon, Goatmon, Coatlmon. Snakes then infest the dorm. Majiramon is mad because somebody has stopped the flow of wealth. That being Kiyoshiro’s hacks that Jellymon rewrote.
JELLYMON DOES CRYPTO.
They go to the Digital Space and Jellymon and Kiyoshiro team up to hack. Gammamon evolves to BetelGammamon, but he and Hiro get caught. As do Angoramon and Ruri. Kiyoshiro gets brave and Jellymon attacks, destroying the tailsman to return the flow of wealth and he apologises to Majiramon.
Rating for Digimon Ghost Game Episode 5
I’m glad that this episode broke away from the formula of either having an evil Digimon, or a misguided Digimon. Episode 5 had a law-abiding Digimon who hated Crypto.
We also get to see Jellymon and Kiyoshiro interact and they are definitely one of the more chaotic pairs that we’ve had.
This episode, while I did enjoy it, I felt that it suffered from being only 20 minutes long as it felt to go by very fast – we get a quick info dump about Kiyoshiro, and then the mon of the week shows up.
I do like the implication that Jellymon stole the Digivice and Dim from Hiro, but the show never actually tells you if that is what happened.
