See, there are some problems that arise here.
1) miyako's clothes are different. She's wearing an open jacket of some sort when her DW clothes were closed up so to speak. She's not wearing gloves and she's not wearing her helmet. Some may say she's wearing a skirt but who knows. and if in fact they are wearing their digital world clothes, why are they still wearing them 3 years later? If their subconscious created them, then shouldn't they have all subconsciously changed their outfits? This can easily be said "Well, it was just to make them recognizable to the audience." But that sounds like a pretty sloppy excuse. [s]Just like everything else.[/]
2) if they were in the digital world, why would maki say they were missing? They aren't missing in that case, are they? Sure, she could have lied. But after yamato left we can say she wasn't...
3) Are they actually in the Digital world? In reference to the 8 that is. Because few of the kids said something was off. Hikari and Takeru's clothes didn't change. Even in 02 in winter and summer outfits, they always reverted back to their spring clothes. Except for that one error in the winter episodes when Taichi and Hikari visited the DW. Somehow Maki got in the DW if it is real. Which brings up more theories about her which I won't mention in this thread. There's also the fact the reboot didn't affect jesmon, alphamon or Meicoomon.
4) We know that there are many different worlds other than the Digital and real world. It could be that the 02 kids somehow landed in that one. Or maybe they are in the REAL Digital world, if the one that the 8 are in is fake.
So even though some things may seem obvious, there are some things that don't add up still...
if the 02 kids were in the digital world when it rebooted, who's to say they aren't somehow evil? They may have lost their memories as well and are being used as pawns for someone's plans.
