Yup, it's not appmon without fillerish episode and Standard Appmon of the Week (SAotW). And again, the next ep preview is the only worthy one. We finally get to see Couchmon back, and also the ultimate 4 that looked like Beelzebumon next ep!

Edit: forgot to point that we finally get to see Eri's mom! Now we have seen all of them (minus Rei's but her mom is dead ).

If you're gonna make every episode like this then why bother making a plot.
@Idiysar Almond: He's called Charismon

I know, just wanted to point out how he looked a lot like Beelzebumon from the preview.

The character work in this episode was amazing! Getting to know more about Eri's motivation and seeing her home life was moving! Astra's changing dynamic with her and seeing how his own career is progressing was interesting!

...but did it have to come at the expense of the plot? Eri is probably my favorite character, but I complained about this during Offmon's arc, and I am just as angry about it in Eri's episode!

Why Appmon? Why can't you tie your character development to plot development? I mean, it's still better than Frontier, which couldn't do either... But I just expect better from you, Appmon!

As for that preview... dear god, Appmon, are you seriously going to follow up a big character development episode all about Eri's strength of will with a goddamned Damsel in Distress plot?! That is just shameful.

Theory: They're releasing scrapped episodes from the first arc
May I punch you?

Judging from the next ep preview, this episode, as fillery as it was, was probably meant to set up Eri's character so that she's depressed by the end, and easily manipulable by Charismon in the next episode. Especially since it looks like the next episode will lead off directly where this one left off. With Eri still sitting in that auditorium.

HOLD THE FUKC UP!

  • Eri loses the elections
  • The loss makes her sad
  • Other stuff will happen to make her become depressed
  • Fresh new meat for Charismon
  • Charismon proceeds and mindf*cks her a la Kiriha
  • Eri's now her slave
  • Charismon orders her to attack the Applidrivers
  • Eri now confronts our heroes and Appliarizes Oujamon
  • Oujamon reks everyone
  • something something Eri starts to realize that what she's doing is wrong
  • Eri breaks the Mind Control
  • Minerva approves and gives her a DUO
  • SITUATION 1: Charismon attacks but loses and becomes Haru's chip
  • SITUATION 2: Charismon talks about this with Knight and something something next episode
I can't wait to see this not ​happening!

...it COULD happen that way. It doesn't seem unusual for Digimon. I'm not sure Appmon has earned the good will to have faith that'll play out with the proper dramatic gravitas, but it will probably go something like that. I hope.

clanc, you need to stop with the random spammy posts.

Nearly half the thread is random nonsense responses from you.



Also, this episode has Volcano Ota, which gets a thumbs up regardless.

If I learned something about in 35 episodes is that you don't put a bit of hope on Appmon

If you don't like the show that much then you don't have to watch it? Nobody forcing you to do so.

What Volcano Uta by the way?

I actually enjoy Appmon when it comes to fight scenes and plot and I want to see how this series reaches it's climax and it's conclusion. I just don't like filler-like episodes like this when we're 17 episodes away from the finale.

Volcano is the Digimon series planning developer and took a role in this episode.

Guys, I realize you expect that every episode be a semi-continuous serial narrative because other digimon series typically are, but an episode that focuses on essential characterization and gives new insight into it does not equal filler. It's simply using a different model for storytelling that other kids' shows embrace.

Honestly, if they had the main plot with Leviathan in here, the elements regarding Eri's character would have much less room to breathe.

...Wow. I don't know 3D model could achieve that kind if creepiness.
Edit: Fully watch the episode I don't get the sentiment that this episode is a filler at all, this is pretty much Eri character and background building, even the Appmon of the week is her fan.
Also, Astra is pretty much already making money of his own given the view on his channel he must have ton of ads revenue.

Guys, I know Appmon has shown clear problems with the pacing of the story but there's a point where the filler claims get unfair. After seeing it (and even without subtitles) I can safely say that if this episode was filler, then the one where Rei got Dezipmon was too and we all know that isn't true at all.

Not only the preview shows that the plot of Appliyama 470 will continue the next episode (with Charismon, no less) but this episode also gave Eri some much needed screentime in a show that has been mostly Haru/Yuujin lately (both Eri and Astra have become sidecharacters/comic-relief and there are more episodes without Rei than with him). Sure we know about Bootmon and the search is important, but if the show only focuses on that and make the Ultimate 4 recurring villlains that can't be defeated till near the end, things will get stale very fast (and yes, I'm looking at Frontier's RK arc as an example).

Sure, having a Standard Appmon as the AotW is old but Calcumon as an enemy had a lot more meaning than most of the AotW (specially the current ones) I may be reading too much into it but I think he may have been infected/sent on purpose (like Batterymon) to see if Eri could be tempted to leave things as they were and become N°1 like that. I'll have to wait for next episode to see if I'm right but even if I'm not Calcumon will still be a better choice for me than most other AotW

I think most people are more angry with the series' pacing as a whole and are reacting negatively to any episode that seems remotely like filler.

You know that they should be facing off ultimate or mega level Digimon at this point of time and not Digimon at the rookie level
