Digimon Partners is doing a monthly feature in the leadup to Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning!

Character Overviews, which will do a quick overview of characters, along with art previews.

We won't be doing much of the character overviews, as generally they are just going over a few key moments from prior anime.

Fourth up is Iori!


In 'The Beginning' he's in his third year of high school, but his appearance doesn't seem to have changed much... But it seems he's already begun working a part-time job to help aim towards his dream. Look forward to seeing Iori grow & his success!


This look at a storyboard of Iori & Armadimon was drawn by director Tomohisa Taguchi.

They finish by asking people what their favorite Iori episode or line is.

'A Certain Digimon Partner Staff Member' gave sample answers as...

Their 3 favorite Iori stories:
Digimon Adventure 02 episode 16- Submarimon's Escape from the Sea Bottom
Digimon Adventure 02 episode 35- Assault! BlackWarGreymon
Digimon Adventure 02 episode 36- The Steel Angel, Shakkoumon

Their favorite Iori line is from Digimon Adventure 02 episode 35- " I don't want to fight you if you have a soul!"

The next in the series will be on September 27th.

Another fun little preview, with the highlight being Armadimon trying to hold up a stack of books/paperwork.

Prior previews:
1- Hikari
2- Miyako
3- Takeru
