Dawn of the Final Day. 16 hours remain…
Compared to the two movies before, Chapter 5’s beginning, despite carrying on from the previous movie, personally felt like it started with less of an impact.
And it continued that way for the whole movie in my opinion.
However, I’m not writing this to talk about my issues with chapter five. We released two podcast episodes (one | two) where I go into that and I’ve mentioned it in countless other places that I feel the only relevant part of Coexistence was the final ‘episode’.
Like with Chapter 4, picking a favourite moment or highlight from this movie was pretty easy.
There were a few memorable moments such as the spooky stories scene, the reemergence of a common theme of Hikari’s unhealthy reliance on her brother, and, of course, seeing Maki in the dark ocean with Dagomon as her mental state further deteriorate.
However, my highlight for Chapter 5 is a scene that I feel is probably one of the coolest moments in Digimon Adventure Tri even if it just seems that way as it stands out in a film that I found relatively bland.
This moment was when Homeostasis over Hikari again and she stands up to it. While it’s pretty simple as far as scenes go, it really stood out as Hikari has been previously been more or less seen as gentle or weak and we’ve never heard her actually make reference to being taken over by Homeostasis.
It also shows great strength from her to break out of something that has such a hold on her.
