☼ Brotherhood ☼

In this first chapter, there are some brotherhood scenes or I could say bromance (Brother Romance). Because one of the themes of this anime is friendship, so it is not wrong if there is some bromance scene, moreover each character have known since childhood and they grew up together.Like a scene between Taichi and Yamato are sitting together at meals in the school cafeteria or when they fight each other. Since childhood, they're both emotionally close, especially they are a couple Jogress changes between Agumon and Gabumon and turned into Omegamon. So I could say their hearts were already united.

Toei Animation might deliberately use this way to attract bromance lovers of anime among girls or fujoshi to see this anime. Bromance scenes in this anime is not too extreme so still in a safe and reasonable scale. So do not hesitate to watch this anime just because of things like bromance.

☼ Reunion ☼

In accordance with its title, the first chapter of this anime will tell the reunion between DigiDestined (Chosen Children) and their Digimon which after several years had never met. This is what has been long awaited by Digimon lovers, which certainly will make them moved when seeing this anime while remembering their childhood together with Digimon Adventure Series. Toei Animation did a great job with making this Digimon Adventure Tri movie, despite many fans who wish that Toei Animation would make this anime into a series format with many episodes like Digimon Adventure Series before.

☼ Courage and Friendship ☼

Digimon Adventure Tri first chapter will explain more in the relationship between Taichi as the holder Crest of Courage and Yamato as the holder Crest of friendship. After the appearance of Digimon in the real world and DigiDestined started to fight them, people start blaming Digimon due to damage caused in the real world. This sparked dissent among Digidestined and the quarrels between Taichi and Yamato happened. Taichi which is a symbol of courage began to hesitate and falter in the fight against Digimon, because he began to feel scared and worried about the consequences of war on the environment around him. While Yamato as a symbol of friendship with the help of others DigiDestined continue to convince Taichi to fight Digimon. This showed that the story in this anime is more mature and deeper in comparison with the previous Digimon Adventure Series.

For Digimon fans who are more interested in action or battle than the story itself in this anime might be disappointed after saw this because of less battle scenes and quite short, especially the battle scene in the last few minutes. But for me, this anime has been quite satisfying and entertaining although there is some that makes me disappointed at the battle scene and the scene where Digimon evolved. And as for the design of the characters, as I have mentioned in my previous blog, where each character designs are not too prominent and seem ordinary, but I like the design of the current Digimon.

If you are fans of the Digimon, then Digimon Adventure Tri: Reunion (再 会) is a must watch, but do not expect too much or you will be disappointed. You will be touched by recalling your childhood times with its musics and with its typical words from Digimon when evolved or in battle.
