Digimon Frontier Episode 20
Toei Animation announced the production of a fourth Digimon series in February 2002 and was set to start in April, after Tamers. Digimon Frontier was conceived by Fuji TV's Go Haruna, Yomiko Advertising's Kyōtarō Kimura, and Hiromi Seki. The series was directed by Yukio Kaizawa, who had previously worked on some Bikkuriman shows and certain One Piece episodes. It was chiefly written by Sukehiro Tomita, while character designs were done by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru.
Digimon Frontier Episode 20
Said strategies do make for some cool action in this episode, at least. This big flier-focused fight is a better pass at an idea the show has tried before with stuff like the Garudamon episode, and it comes together more strongly here. Of course, that's down to the storyboarders and directors seemingly letting themselves cut loose and have a bit more fun with the format by now; as cautious as I'm currently treating my engagement with Digimon Adventure: it'd be impossible not to fist-pump a little at WereGarurumon sky-surfing around on one of MetalGreymon's missiles. That, and MetalGreymon's cleverly utilitarian use of his extending robo-arm, are solidly-structured beats; my only issue would be that the show being so proud of itself for such sequences that it repeats the missile-riding beat too quickly for my taste.
The arrival of Angemon is the primary reason I simply cannot talk about this episode without referencing the series' origin. It's clearly a dramatic, major moment on its own. It must be, look at how it's framed! But we currently know so little of Takeru and basically nothing of Angemon, so the dramatic score and imagery are left trying to carry the major significance of a scene we have little investment in this particular version of. It extends to the end of Angemon's role a few minutes later, where his sudden appearance is tempered by his distressing dissolution into a Digitama. It's a direct parallel of the bittersweet moment between Takeru and Angemon back in the original show, but in that one we'd had thirteen episodes to become acquainted with Takeru and his partner, instead of abruptly throwing the scene at us like this. It means that the only way for the significance of this scene to land is by trading on direct knowledge of the original show, which will miss any new kids in the audience completely, and for old fans serve only to remind them of a much better version of what they just watched.
Once again, I can't write this all off as a complete misfire. Hollow as it is, the presentation of the last chunk of this episode is quite nice, and I like the touch of Agumon and Gabumon being the ones to reverently explain the significance of Angemon's Digitama. Like Leomon's conflict with Minotaurmon last episode, it helps the Digital World and its inhabitants feel like their own, in this case hinting at the broader culture the monsters have to themselves. But then we trip over aspects like Angemon not even winning his own debut fight, just powering up Taichi and Yamato's partners so they can be the ones to bask in the spotlight again. Or another new enemy dropping in at the end to repeat basically the same beat from the beginning of the episode, snatching a key to the Holy Digimon away from the heroes to string them along the next phase of this quest. Unlike a few episodes ago, I now find myself less enamored with having no idea where Digimon Adventure: is going, as I worry that the show itself isn't particularly sure of that either.
Many action/fantasy etc. anime have a gentle mix with comedy to break it up. Those shows can get away with mostly comic relief episodes because it fits in their universe. Shows like Hell Girl are too dark or serious to include a comic relief episode without it feeling forced or stupid.
Pbbbtt. That is one of the only real funny moments of the episode. Ai was being monologued to, beaten like a ragdoll and set on fire, but she barely noticed simply because she was thinking about something else.
