    In this case, I don't think the writers were trying to criticize this behavior. After all, she was so vulnerable, because her brother dissapear in a terrible way.

    In Part 6, Dark Gennai is the only tormenting and accusing her. So, I don't think the writers really want to criticize her "innocence".

    Of course. Even Tri's director has said he doesn't want a easy solution to the conflict.

    However, I don't think they were trying to criticize her behavior.

    Not sure how to feel how them getting older with each sequel. It overlaps with my theorie that it's going full-circle till we reach the 02 ending that I despise and erases the chance of further anniversary movies. Furthermore I hate the idea of Hikari still being linked and compared to Taichi repeatedly, she is a person on her own and it's about time she gets to show her strength (something I missed in the Tri movies).

    Regarding the character development in this film, 8 characters are a lot, so they would probably focus the development on one or two characters (likely Taichi and Yamato).

    If there are other films, they may focus on other characters.

    Sure, but Ophanimon Falldown Mode was the result of blatant tampering by outside forces, whatever the Hell those outside forces were.

    Which is actually a useful function of the 02 cast, now that I think of it, putting Hikari in a context where Taichi isn't right there and so making it difficult for the writers to lump them together.

    Even with 02 cast, they linked Hikari with Taichi in 02.

    At the end, regardless of the main cast, it will depends on whether the writers want to focus on her individually or not.

    After all, they don't lump Takeru and Yamato together all the time, even when they are in the same team.

    Sure, but there were also Ken and Miyako to develop her with; most of Hikari's development in 02 (not that there was much of it) was learning to stand on her own without Taichi or Takeru to look out for her. In tri. Hikari ended up just a helpless plot device.

    They would need to have another reboot for that. Real world death.

    It is true that 02 has other characters that she can interact, but she was still relegated in her interactions. It only happened when it was necessary for the plot like the Jogress evolution (although I like episode 31).

    In 02, there was an issue that Hikari depends too much on Taichi, but it wasn't mentioned or implied that she depends too much on Takeru. After all, one of her resolutions in 02 is that she could trust her friends (and it seems that she solved her problems depending on Miyako).



    PS: I'm sorry, I didn't see the message that we should stop the discussion. Should I erase or edit the message?
