Moving on from that little rant of mine, let's talk Digi.
Been reading over some speculations and expectations for the upcoming Adventure series.
After getting a tad annoyed at the "Tai is King" mantra, I started thinking about my own expectations.
Honestly I don't have any.
I'm trying to go into this without the nostalgia goggles on, because doing so raises all kinds of unrealistic expectations I don't want to get into.
Of course I can speculate all I like, and I've been speculating on a few options this could go.
The most obvious route, based on something Kelcie and I spoke of a little while ago, is that this could pick up the Daemon/Dark Ocean loose thread. It's a perfect story starter: Daemon and/or Dagomon break loose and reck havoc on the Digital World and Real World, possibly using the Control Spires to fuel their twisted desires. Potential V-Tamer homages ensue, I guess.
Perfect yes? Maybe too good to be true, given how quickly the Dark Ocean was swept under the rug and was rarely spoken of again. I'm not sure if I see the writers willing to open up THAT can of worms again, unless Chiaki Nonaka swings by to pick up where he left off with the idea...?
A more likely route is the aforementioned Huckmon idea.
Given the huge push this little guy's had in recent material, even being included as a character in the anniversary Digivices, I'd honestly be very surprised if Huckmon WASN'T
included in the anime.
But I feel fairly confident Huckmon will be involved, perhaps in a role similar to Dorumon's in X-Evolution; the same goes for the Royal Knights and Olympus 12 based on that blurb I discussed last time.
Of course, and I honestly expect this to happen instead, Toei could instead choose to revive Myotismon again.
Perhaps he reincarnates as NeoVamdemon, and then proceeds to ressurect other past villains to keep a theme going: NeoDevimon, KingEtemon, GigaSeadramon, ChaosPiedmon, Chaosdramon....
Er... Not really sure about Puppetmon, since he doesn't have
an alternate form...
But my point being is that there may not be any "new" evil Digimon, and it's just the original line up reborn in other alternate forms. It does kind of fit some of the previously established ideas in Adventure since even Etemon
had his own
Of course there's always Millenniumon, which leads me to another possibility...
Besides Huckmon, I have a sneaking suspicion this won't be a "pure" Adventure.
For one thing, well, with so many Digimon to choose from these days, newer guys like Gumdramon or Gaomon might be seen running around.
The other is that I believe there MAY be another crossover involved somewhere, which of course means Takato, Takuya, Marcus, Taiki and Tagiru may show up in some shape or form.
I say that mostly because of the recent crossovers, not only in Hunters, but as well in the video games like Adventure and Re: Digitize. I wouldn't be shocked if Tai and crew also appeared in Cyber Sleuth, but that's another matter.
Why would the others appear? Eh, why not I guess. Could be Millenniumon's timey wimey powers screwing up everything, or it could be some residual energies left over from Quartzmon to tie into Hunters. Or maybe Gankoomon took a page out of the Clock dude's rulebook and brought them to fight a new common foe.
To sum up, I guess I fibbed. I do have to expectations: Huckmon having a role and another crossover.
But if none of these ideas come to fruition, I won't loose sleep over it. There's always Zone after all~
