Digimon Tri

DigiDestined

Being a Digidestined means that sometimes you have to save the world, even if you’re the one who caused the problem.

Welcome to the world of Digimon Tri where the nostalgic part of your childhood has come back 20 years later to scream in your face, DIGIVOLUTIONNNNN! I’m sure that every Digimon fan is excited to see of original Digi-Destined all grown up right? Will Taichi and Yamato finally get along? Will Joe finally get a girlfriend? Will Koushiro finally grow a pair of balls to ask Mimi out? Without further ado lets cut to the chase!

The whole shebang is set 3 years after Digimon 02. The Digi-Destined are all teenagers now and man are they faced with some tough challenges. We’ve all been there and done that so this anime becomes extremely relatable as each one of them goes through their teenage drama phase. But I must say, the person who caught me most off guard was Takeru who turned out to be the biggest player out of the bunch lol.

It’s great to see all of them reunited once again! The Digimon and Digi-Destined are ecstatic as they haven’t seen each other in forever. The Digimon’s haven’t changed but the girls have if you know what I’m talking about huehuehuehue (Pervert mode activate). But no time for a sweet catch up because there’s a giant red beetle, Kuwagamon destroying everything in its path like a psycho maniac. 

Emotional trauma slowly unravels as societal pressure and responsibilities weights down on the kids. This is evident from the get-go as we see our beloved Taichi turn from an upbeat fun loving boy into an anxious drama queen. However, it’s understandable given the circumstances of a life and death battle that takes place in the middle of Odaiba. TO BE FAIR he did a great job handling the situation and overcoming his fears. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE was having some sort issue and really had no idea what the hell they were doing. Sounds about right when you talk about teenagers lol. Congrats Toei for hitting the nail on the head for this concept because when I was a teenager, I had no clue what the hell I was doing either lol.

The animation was so no doubt LIT AF FAM. However after seeing the Digimon digivolve for the 6th time kinda makes you wonder why they didn’t put in warp digivolutions lol. Not gonna hate but if you ask me, the old digivolution scene still holds first place in my heart ❤ To be fair, I had really high expectations for this Digimon Tri, but the plot sorta fell through for me so, in reality, I was only watching it for the fights haha.

The whole story pretty much revolves around a new Digimon called Meicomon or commonly referred to as Mei-Chan by her partner Mei. 5 Star for name diversity lol. Mei-Chan is pretty much a cat Digimon which society anxiety issues. Mei joins the Digi-Destined as a new dandere member which I find to be pretty cute and balancing. Meicomon definitely be stealing a lot of hearts inside and outside of the anime with her cuteness. Yeah, it’s a girl Digimon, it took me about 10 episodes to finally get that memo. It’s a trapppppp lol.  

LONG STORY SHORT, Meicomon was an infected Digimon. This is not a spoiler because the very first scene of episode one hinted this so screw you haterrrrrrs. As Meicomon gets separated from Mei, her bad side comes out causing her to despise her partner and mutate into an evil form. So everyone had to run around back and forth between the real world and the digital world in order to find her.

To make things more complicated, they brought back Ken as an evil antagonist behind everything. However, we later discovered that it was actually Mr.Gennei??? Who isn’t really Mr.Gennei??? And this was all the plan of Yggdrasil the leader of the royal knights. Then they throw in some HOMEOSTASIS bullshit god of all Digimon and at this point, I don’t even know what the hell is going on anymore. But one thing for sure is that Jessmon was my all-time favourite Digimon in the series because of how cool he was ❤

It took about 26 episodes to finally defeat her, and during that time the Digimon lost their memories, Mr.Nishijima dies anddddd the Digi-Destined from 02 are found! To make the plot even worse Meicomon dies as Ken leaves us with a cliff hanger as to the next Digimon he’s going to infect. This is a genius way to promote the sequel but it sure as hell pissed off the majority of the viewers because practically nothing was explained lol. 

So my word of advice to you all is to watch Digimon Tri with an open mind. Digimon Tri is focused around the relationship of the Digi-Destined and their partners with the emphasis of GROWING UP compared to insane fights from 20 years ago. Lower your expectations and just enjoy the show like I did and you’ll be a lot happier in the end. The wave of nostalgia was cured after seeing all the cute Digimon and that was enough for me 🙂 

Digi-Destined Waifus are the best ❤

Your Lie In April

Music speaks louder than words.

Lies are generally frowned upon within our modern day society. No matter how big or small a lie is still a lie. Your Lie in April revolves around a hugeeeeee lie that will leave you heartbroken and possibly bedridden for the next month contemplating your very own existence and life choices. Oh yeah, this shit was sad. This anime is the very definition of YOLO combined with the elegant classical masterpieces that will leave you in awe.

This anime revolves around a piano prodigy, Kōsei Arima. People call him the Human Metronome for his incredible accuracy but I call him an absolute beast. He’s won so many competitions that his trophy cabinet is overfilled to the point where it’s about to topple over. Ever since his mother passed away, Kōsei loses his ability to hear the sound of music he’s playing. Its described as sinking into a sea of black abyss that was very dense and heavy. Nothing was wrong with his hearing, but however, the kid was mentally and emotionally scarred.

Losing all hope in his ability, Kōsei forgets about the piano and moves on with his now monochrome life. It has been 4 years since he has touched his piano and that shit was probably a nest for spiders now. One day, Kosei was hanging out with his friends in a local park and suddenly hears something incredibly beautiful. As he turned to face the sakura blossoms floating in the air he was bewitched by the sight of our waifu Kaori Miyazono.

Kaori is fun, free-spirited violinist with a music style that somewhat reflects her quirky upbeat personality. Her rebellious tendencies to not stick to the score captures the heart of the audience but is disliked by many judges and critics. She is keen in helping the prodigy get back on his feet again. She feels sorry for him and wants to see a new side of him, unlike his usual tempo-manic style. However, like all anime, Kaori decides to go out with Kosei’s best friend, Watari. I don’t blame her, he was the captain of the soccer team and pretty much the whole package. This was the FIRST LIE.

What good would a love anime be without a couple of love triangles here and there? We’ve got the childhood friend Tsubaki who has been in love with Kosei since they were young. Kosei’s inspiration for playing so well in his first competition was the death of Tsubaki’s grandmother. He just wanted to cheer her up but instead ends up making her moist.

You’re probably thinking, where is the actual lie in all of this? Well just wait a bit longer and all shall be revealed. Kaori somehow manages to convince Kōsei to perform with her on stage. And suddenly out of nowhere she collapses after an amazing performance. Her SECOND LIE was that she’s anaemic and has been ever since she was little. Her disease was Friedreich’s Ataxia. To put it simply, her nervous system was breaking down causing damage with her muscles, speech and ultimately leading to a heart disease.

Despite that, she soldiers on after being discharged and invites Kōsei to another music event. But hello, she faints again at the event. 10/10 for effort though. Poor Kaori losing hope and giving up on life. Kōsei had to soldier on and played a duet with Nagi Aiza. After hearing the duet, Kaori was balling her eyes out and decides to undergo the risky surgery in hope of being able to play next Kōsei again.

Push comes to shove Kōsei musters up the courage and a pair of balls to enter the Eastern Japan Piano Competition. Looking around for Kaori in the crowd, she was sitting there in the back row smiling. Kosei realizes that this was actually her spirit and that her surgery was unsuccessful. The sorrow from each key was projected to the crowd allowing them to connect the Kōsei’s emotions from the bottom of his heart. Oh, and when you hear him say “Sanoyara“, you better get that box of tissues ready.

Not only can you witness the PSYCHO childhood upbringing of the metronome prodigy but you can also experience the people he inspired throughout his journey. With the beautiful sakura blossom transitions into fall, this anime will seriously leave a good impression and a long-lasting nostalgia. The friendship formed between the 4 was no doubt beautiful. Arima’s dependancy towards Tsubaki and but mainly Kaori was the most tragic love story since Romeo and Juliet. The letter symbolising the acceptance of his feelings, but also trying to help him move on with his life as Kaori thought Kōsei didn’t see her as a true lover but more of a musical partner.

Kaori declaring her love for Watanabe for everyone to know was the “Your Lie in April”. Remember the first lie I talked about? Well, at Kaori’s funeral, her parents handed a handwritten letter to Kōsei. We find out that Kaori was in love with Kōsei the entire time!!!!! She was only using Watari to get closer to Kosei without hurting Tsubaki’s feelings. Not all is bad, 2nd waifu is still alive and she confessed to Kōsei and promised to stay by his side for the rest of his life.

Rest in piece Kaori Waifu 😦 ❤
