  • Myotismon makes his debut! Finally we see him up close and personal.

    i really enjoyed this episode because it explains what the crests really mean and it also shows Myotismon, the digidestineds first real strong ultimate villan. Myotismon seems powerful but in other episodes he becomes a little weaker. Palmon, Gomamon Patamon and Gatomon are the only digimon who havent evolved into ultimate form yet. At the end of this episode everything seems to be fine once Garudamon brings the digidestined to a safe place but then Myotismon's voice can be heard in the sky warning the digidestined that their battle with him is not over yet. You have to watch this episode.moreless
  • A great episode in a great series that really highlights just how close the digidestined group are to each other and their digimon.

    Finally, a good episode focusing on Sora. The episodes leading up to this one had me knowing that Sora's crest of love would be a good one to watch. Sora is one of my favourite characters in the show and it was great to see her finally gain her own crest. I really loved this episode not only because it focused on Sora for once but also because it showed how close she is to both Matt and Tye. This episode made all my hours of devotion to this show worthwile and i would happily watch it again and again and again.moreless
