Overview (Story)
“I will protect the smiles of everyone, and overcome the odds!”

A giant Digimon is spreading its poisonous pollen gas around the shopping mall area. With this gas spreading further, the people inside the shopping mall can’t get out. But then, one by one, they were biten and poisoned by a group of small bug Digimons inside the shopping mall building.

Kiyoshiro and Jellymon went on a shopping, while finding out already that they were trapped inside the shopping mall building. Meanwhile, a little girl is all alone crying and she was searching for her mother, until Kiyoshiro and Jellymon have decided to help her.

They were still trapped inside, until Kiyoshiro got poisoned! Time is running out, and Jellymon must do something! Will it be Kiyoshiro’s last stand, until the poison kills him?

Review

Let’s head on to the review and impression proper! This is going to be interesting.

First, Characters. Kiyoshiro’s “Limit Break” state has been used again here since Episode 10, wherein he is always struggling when the other characters are already suffering and struggling. He can be the same character who is just hiding and running away, just like as he is saying that “he is a no hero”, after all. Basically, he can be suited well as being a “male idol”, rather than being a hero, for me. (Spoiler) And finally, Jellymon got her “Super Digivolution” form, just as the same as with Hiro’s Gammamon. This Ultimate Level form of Jellymon is just almost like a typical “onee-san” type (Big Sister) of character. Well, talking about onee-san or onee-sama type, she may utter some famous words — well, you already know it. Her appearance is something like from Angewomon from the original Digimon Adventure Series.

Second, story. The plot isn’t really too much complicated, and it was just right and plain. And, this shall involve people, who were being rescued when they were trapped and suffering inside a building. Basically, at the time when the pandemic has struck and killed millions of people worldwide, it shows the viewers that no matter what happens, we need to follow and to stay inside in a closed home or building. But then, there are times that we can be still hard-headed, and we still ended up in getting more dangers. And going back, it shows that people should not be boastful and arrogant, or otherwise to not become so hard-headed. Sometimes, a simple instruction or guide can save lives… and time!

So then, all of us may be no heroes. We may be weak and powerless. But then, if there is someone who can be weaker than us, shall it be the time that it’s our turn to save and protect them? An idol can reach for her dreams to make it come true, and be a role model for everybody, while a hero can fight and protect these idols’ dreams! And these were the things that I have learned from the Episode Review of this Anime!

Now that we have Gammamon and Jellymon with their Super Digivolution forms revealed, at last. Angoramon is the only one left! We shall expect him finally to get his own Super Digivolution form in the next succeeding Episodes in the future, and I am looking forward into that!
