Digimon Adventure tri., Toei Animation’s six-part original movie sequel to Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, is set in the year 2005, six years after the eight DigiDestined’s first adventure to the Digital World. At some point a year prior, the gate to the Digital World inexplicably closed. Now, a digital distortion has appeared and glitched Digimon are terrorizing Odaiba. After three years, the DigiDestined and their Digimon partners reunite and find out the cause of this.
So the first Digimon Adventure tri. movie is one part nostalgia trip, and one part cocktease. One one side, it’s good to see the original eight back in action after 15 years. On the other– Joe apparently has a girlfriend, and Izzy apparently has a crush on Mimi. That’s one ship sunk. And T.K has a girlfriend that’s not Kari!! That’s another sunk ship. God knows if Matt and Sora are still a thing or not! (I sure hope not.) Anyway, it’s kinda unnerving that there’s absolutely no mention of the 02 kids outside of the first five minutes where they get wrecked. Heck, we don’t even know if they’re alive or not. I don’t think the writers have the guts to just kill them off, so I think they’re just M.I.A. or something. That aside, it was an enjoyable first movie that was weakened a bit (not as much as Crystal) by usual Toei QUALITY.
