I don't know my V.A.s that well, where they in the other digidubs?


Yes well Christina Vee was Meiko in Tri, Stephanie Sheh was Minami in the first Digimon Tamers movie and Megumi in Digimon Savers.

Outside of Digimon, Christina is Killua in Hunter x Hunter, Riruka in Bleach, Stephanie she is Hinata in Naruto, Orihime in Bleach, just to name the few.

Ei fits Christina well because she can sing and she has that spunk a lot of her characters, Ai fits Stephanie she just a nice sweet girl like Hinata and Orihime.

Episode 18

So we have a Pokemon Go parody, okay nothing wrong with that.

Haru and Yujjin and their closeness, if this wasn't a kid show, OMG how far would they push their closeness if you know what I mean. I have seen shows about high schools when you see two boys as close as they are, and the girls get ideas in their heads on what type of relationship they have. Yujjin, Haru's true love interest.

Anyway let's get serious, so Haru feels guilty about keeping his adventures secret from Yujjin, but has no guilt of what so ever from keeping this from his mother. Okay whatever, it is not like this doesn't involve your family, oh wait is does, we found that out a couple of episodes, Haru you jerk. I hope in the future, he has guilt for keeping this from his mom.

So how heroes don't realize the L corporation is a front for Leviathan, how dense can you be, I hope at least Rei figured that out.

I was hoping that Yujjin would reveal to Eli that he knows Haru's secret, nothing really advances, we don't learn much about Yujjin, what he knows, and why he has had those creepy evil looks in the past.

We do get some backstory, and it was a good backstory. Haru is a nice kid.

Next episode, Valentine's Day special, I wonder if Haru is going to get anything for Yuj... I mean Ai.

Episode 19

Okay finally found the episode, and it was awesome. Finally ultimate, that was fast.

This was an intense battle, and Timemon has to acknowledge Appmon now.

I think I have just about enough of Mienumon, I think she has over stayed her welcome, I am already to move onto the next villain.

Haven't had a chance to watch episode 19 yet, none of the usual places I look seems to have the sub. Which is frustrating, because from what I've been hearing it's actually a really good episode.

Also, the New York Toy Fair is underway. However, I haven't seen any reports of Digimon toys being spotted. Some new Power Rangers stuff but no Digimon. So, for now at least it would seem we're still going to have to wait a while for a Digimon Universe dub.

Episode 20

Hmm an Astra episode, when I heard about that, I really wanted to skip it, but it was actually pretty good, and Astra and Musamon weren't as annoying.

When I heard the name Jenny, I assumed she was Astra's step mom, but no she was those liberal parents that have their kids address them as a first name, a liberal English speaking person (I am not sure if she suppose to be from England or the United States) and a traditional Japanese man get married, I find that they make it work and still love each other beautiful.

This time Levimon virus was really dangerous messing with medical technology, before it was just inconvenience people, but now people can die if you mess with medical stuff as we saw with Astra's dad.

Not going to lie, kind of peeve that Astra achieved Ultimate before Eri. Eri joined the team first and it is established, she is the mother of our Appmon fighters family, and Astra is the Haru and Eri's kid. Whatever, next week it is Eri's turn.

Episode 21

An Eri episode, how I loved it. So we learn more about Eri back story, and does she have any parents?

Finally Eri turn to get an ultimate, and who would have guessed is by converting an enemy to their side. And now that we have Coachmon, well our heroes what is so obvious that the L corporation is a front for Leviathan. How hard is it to figure that out.

We almost got all the code cards because Meinumon is bad at her job. Why did she have to sabotage Eri, just leave it alone the odds are against her and she love anyway. Though I wonder does Meinumon have an un corrupt form, could that be an important character.

I am hoping they get all the code cards and we can move on.

I've just watched episode 21. I have very mixed feelings about the whole thing. I like Eri as a character but I think that her story-arc is the weakest part of Digimon Universe.

The whole idol industry in Japan is a seriously messed-up business. Exploitative, cut-throat and at times outright creepy. The representation of the idol industry in Digimon Universe doesn't really reflect that reality. If anything, I think that Yakuza 5 (mainly Haruka's chapters) on the PS3 does a much better job of showing just how messed-up the behind the scenes of the idol world can be.

So I watch these story-arc moments for Eri with a certain sense of trepidation, knowing full well that the idol industry is a lot more sinister then this sanitised version seen in Digimon Universe. Not to mention those photo-op images of Eri that have replaced the old ED animation; it's like the Digimon name is being used to launch 'Eri' into an actual idol career. Just what is Toei playing at here? Did they invest in an idol business and now trying a bit of co-branding? Or is the plan to make Eri a kind of anime idol equivalent to Miku Hatsune?

Either way, I think this idol story-arc is a distraction that's causing Digimon Universe to lose focus. If it weren't for Digimon Adventure Tri and the Digimon video games I'd be concerned about the direction of the franchise. With a bit of luck a new story-arc will be starting soon once the last Seven-code Digimon has been rescued from Meinumon. Then we might finally start to see Digimon Universe realise its full potential.

Episode 22

First of all they are right the future is bleak, robots are taking our jobs.

We find out how Rei and Hackmon meet, and unlike the other right answer was no. The more we learn about Rei, the more sad I am, poor guy I hope we don't have to wait to long to get his brother again. Don't let it Xros Wars again when we find Hajime he is evil.

Revivemon looks awesome, I thought Rei achieved ultimate long ago, so the rival gets the power up last.

And it was a very small part, and it was a theory, but now I am convinced it is going to happen, Mienumon is going to join Eri's collection. Eri comment about Mienumon always a annoyance and give an explosive punch, yup they are setting it up for those two to be on the same. I think it is going to be Eri who steps and saves a cured Mienumon from Rei.

That brings up another thing, that could be the thing that keeps Rei from joining the team just yet, he is going to want to delete any enemy even after they are cured and have no memories of the bad stuff they have done, while Haru and company will forgive their enemies, Rei he is not going to care, he wants revenge for his brother.

Episode 23

That was an awesome episode, as the battle ensued, I was just waiting, Rei is going to show up and save the day, I just knew it, and that is what happened.

I have to Warudamon was a sick design and I just love it. I am kind of disappointed, we just kill her off and not purify or cure her and get her on our side. Especially since we know Levithan is probably going to get converted at the end. The same way I had with Xros Wars, Baguamon got reformed yet we the henchmen don't get the same treatment.

Anyway great episode, I wonder what happens next.

Episode 24

Dantemon is awesome of course, he is only a one episode character because we can't have nice things.

Well I love how everyone had an excited look in their eyes of seeing this stuff, expect for Rei, he is saving that for when he sees his brother, I can respect that.

And everyone was about to give up except for my girl Eri chan, way to Eri.

Anyway awesome battle between Dantemon and Metormon. You will be missed Dantemon.

By the big story poor Mr. Satin, he can't get his book.

Looks like next week they are entering the Deep Web, which looks a bit shady from the previews.

After all in the real world, the Deep Web is where the most shady stuff in the internet happens. Ever seen CSI: Cyber?

The surface web looks Hawaii on vacation season, but the deep web looks like Crime Alley where you can get mugged.

Episode 25

So we are back to monster of the week plot next week, what a let down.

Well we did find out what happened to Hajime, so that is progress, he could be an Appmon.

I knew the appmon was going to be a traitor because of his voice actor, he normally voices these types of duchbag characters.

Episode 26

The new OP and ED spoiler much. Okay this is Digimon we are talking about, they spoiled the 8th child identity and her partner in Adventure, so this is not new.

So first of all Rei is more part of the team now, and Yujin he is going to be part of the team and to my surprise a good guy. Personally Yujin gets to have an Appmon, so should Ai. Why doesn't she have to left on the sidelines, her heart if pure enough to deserve it, and now Eri is truly the token girl, 4 to 1 boy to girl ratio.

Hackmon maybe being Hajime, dam if it is true that reveal is going to be so emotionally.

I am glad it seems Haru's mom is going to play more of a role here, she better find out about everything, especially this involves her family or husband's family. Don't be jerk son Haru.

As for the episode, just a clip show, Torajirou being proud he said his annoying catch phrase the most, really is that something to be proud of?

The ending, Appmons in school that is cute.

The series is entertaining although nothing beats Adventure and 02 in bringing that Digimon vibe that we all love since we were kids

So apparently the second half of the show began this month.

They did the recap last week at the perfect spot. I think the latest episodes are warming itself up though as the pacing is slowing down again. I got some mixed thoughts on the new OP song.

Episode 27

That didn't take long, Yujin revealed to be the 5th App user, and Offmon is an interesting character, very OP, but they even that out by making his attack have a long long time to load. And at the beginning of the episode, even Appmon sees the Yuri with Haru and Yujin.

Interesting no Rei in this episode and don't see him in the next episode preview either, perhaps they are keeping him and Yujin separated for now, when Rei finds out about him, I could see him not trusting him.

Eri was her usual hilarious self, dam that villain for picking on Eri chan, and Astra is annoying as usual, maybe with more characters, we get less Astra screen time.

And this new ultimate villain, looks interesting, and he doesn't work directly for Levithan does open up the possibility of him joining our side.

And poor Ai chan, she doesn't get an Appmon despite being kind and having a big heart, clearly worthy of being chosen.

Next episode, don't know what to expect, hopefully we won't have to wait long for a Rei / Yujin confrontation.
