  • Top notch storytelling.

    This episode concludes the battle with Beelzemon. The entire battle (beginning two episodes earlier in "Lionheart") was intense. It goes far beyond what would be expected in a Saturday Morning cartoon aimed at kids. The willingness of the writers to kill off one of the heroes is (to me at least) unheard of in this genre.

    The introduction of Biomerging in this episode was very well done. Unfortunately, when the story moved forward to Digimon Frontier (Season 4), the writers took the concept of biomerging and turned it into something terrible. People are not Digimon, but people can merge with Digimon when they have a strong connection to the Digimon like Takato has with Guilmon in this episode of Digimon Tamers. Digimon Frontier lacked entirely in the teamwork and bonding between the Digimon and its human partner. That, on top of the fact that the Digidestined of Frontier never exactly won any fights but managed to defeat Lucemon at the end of the series somehow, is what made Digimon Frontier a waste of time. If they had stuck with the original concept as illustrated with Gallantmon, Frontier may have had a chance...

    As much as I love this show, I am not surprised that it got canceled...
