Fukatsu encountered this Digimon, named as Pucchiemon. Pucchiemon likes to do things in order to help people, while making them do something back in return. But then, Pucchiemon likes to make people do things which must be equal as it when returning back a favor.
Fukatsu can’t even do things equal with Pucchiemon, until it has evolved into Meicrackmon Vicious Mode. Fukatsu then continues to do paybacks with Meicrackmon, until it has reached into the point that he can’t even do paybacks anymore. Something that Fukatsu can’t do has made it angry, until Hiro and others had ended up chasing and stopping that Digimon.
It’s review time!
This time, no “scary horror tactics” within this Episode is present! In fact, it did really just go with a normal, typical scene where there are no horror objects involved.
Pucchiemon? I bet this Digimon came from a Digimon video game, somehow. But then, I really like the voice of it, though I know that it can be a “he” in appearance, but a “she” in voice, haha. And then, it is really rare for me in seeing some Digimons doing a standalone “Digivolution”, when they had gathered enough data, resulted from the emotions of the people and environment around. And then, so far, Ruli was really absent from the action, though that I can see her in only one frame with just only one or two lines of dialogues.
The theme of the Episode is about the principle of give and take. What does this mean? It means we can give something bigger or smaller, but we take something back with an equal value. Yep, it really shows that some people can be just the same when it comes to giving and taking some things. And then, I do really question why the Episode ended so sudden that not even a sign of ending resolution has been given a clear emphasis. Such as that, the enemy Digimon has run away without having its little backstory explained before it was introduced. So far, the action, due to a simple argument, is just simple and minimal, until I can hear shouting one’s names in order to trigger a Digivolution.
Just like Gammamon in Canoweissmon said, Digimons and Humans aren’t the same. Though Digimons can act as Humans as well, Humans can’t do or imitate on what Digimons are doing. It is because, Digimons are just derived from Human elements after all. And in the terms of give and take, we can give out and take everything when we like, irregardless of value. But then, sometimes not all the times that we could follow the principle of give and take. Of what a person can do is something that other people cannot do. That’s right, and it is because we are born differently with unique style and abilities. And don’t forget that our uniqueness can really define on who we are — something that we have, that not many others can have. And those are what I have learned after watching this Episode!
There are some scenes there in which it doesn’t really give out emphasis about Pucchiemon’s character, as well as on how well the scenes are executed.
