I'd have enjoyed this episode more if I didn't miss the part between Leviathan turning lads into apps and Den'nemon explaining things.

  • Still no Offmon backstory tho
  • Neither Knighto-sama
  • Nor a proper God Appliarise sequence
  • Judging by the final episode preview, it seems that Yuujin will stay evil for most of the episode.
  • Eri's still a badass
  • R.I.P in Pasta Haru
  • I look foward to the next ep.

Should I make a list of the Appmon that the App Drivers could have formed with their other Appmon?

So, since Minerva was space all this time, I guess she's the one with the satellite vision every episode.

Like, yeah, it was kinda obvious that if that had a meaning, it was Minerva watching everyone, but I would never actually expect that it was foreshadowing her being in space. Seriously, the foreshadowing in this series is amazing. Almost everything is so subtle.

Brilliant point indeed G-SANtos :)

I love this series, I really do. But now that we are so close to the end, I have to note one of the biggest flaws Appli Monsters has in comparison to the rest of seasons of Digimon, which is about transition. You can switch between laugh, sadness and anger really easy when watching Appmon, which mustn't be something bad in theory, if it wasn't because this happens in almost every episode like 15 times. Some comical scenes may make you cry, whereas other suffering moments make you laugh. Anyways, with only one episode left, here is my personal ranking up to 10 of the best written episodes so far:
1. Episode 49: “The Miraculous Final Evolution! The God Appmon Descend!”
2. Episode 36: “The Election Results! An Evil Hand Draws Near to Eri!”
3. Episode 37: “Attack! The Ultimate Appmon - The Ultimate 4!”
4. Episode 31: “A Trip That Dragged Everyone in!? Tripmon's Terrifying Trip”
5. Episode 41: “Ultimate Fierce Fighting! Globemon VS Charismon!”
6. Episode 48: “Launch! The Humanity Applification Plan!”
7. Episode 12: “Sakusimon, With a Super Applink, You'll Be Defeated!”
8. Episode 33: “The High School Student CEO! Unryuji Knight Appears!”
8. Episode 16: “A Message Through "Time"; The Truth About the Appli Drive”
9. Episode 19: “The Net Ocean is in a Big Pinch! The "Time" Has Come, Ultimate AppGattai!!”
10. Episode 23: “Return the Seven Code Appmon! Showdown - Ultimate VS Ultimate!”

Has anyone else noticed the amount of similarities this episode had to the ending of Star Wars Rogue One? Haru/Jyn, Eri/Cassian, Yuujin/Krennic, Satellite/Death Star. Even the same basic plot outline

I haven't even watch star wars but I know that Yuujin is dressed like sith and throwing around force lighting everywhere.

Is it just me or did the animation like, change styles halfway through the episode? It started out as that really dopey-looking style, but then about the time Haru started climbing up the tower it started looking more "on-model".

Well, aside from that OH MY GOD that was intense! I can't believe there's only one episode left! How are they going to beat Leviathan? How are they going to save all the humans?? How's Haru gonna get his boyfriend back?!?

Different animators doing different parts of the episode.

Nothing too out of the ordinary for an anime, I think.

Was there an explanation about why Hajime doesn't become app?

Looking at that doggo, i wonder what's Leviathan plan for non-human lifeform...

Heh, Eri and Haru are goddamn action heroes even without their Buddy Appmon!

I'm still kinda sad that apparently Ai and Wato have no purpose in the story other than to be victims of Leviathan. Even sadder is that they show the entire world getting Applified, with special scenes for all the cast members... except Knight and the Appliyama girls+manager. I'd have been much more broken up about seeing them get Applified than like.. Haru's mom who has only had like 3 scenes in the whole series.

Still, those are pretty minor complaints about an otherwise amazing episode! I think these last few episodes have definitely shattered the episode rankings up to this point. The only episodes outside of the final arc that crack the top ten for me these days are Globemon's debut, Scopemon's defeat, Hajime's rescue, Eri's Appliyama victory+Knight's confrontation+Ultimate Four's debut (really strong set of episodes there), and possibly the Dantemon/Cyber Kowloon episodes.

Hajime is protected by the room, which has been protecting him all this time from leviathan getting to him again.

Maybe Leviathan purposely didn't want Hajime inside her. You know, Hajime already once did make some troubles to her, and she thought it's better and safe to keep him off her ;). This is why Hajime, despite not having an AplliDrive, was not consumed by her.

The episode was pretty fun, it's sad that one ep more to go. Oh Denemon... you shouldn't have created Minerva, you shouldn't... Now you're dead and your descendant will have to pay for all the buildings and stuff destroyed by your creation. He will go bankrupt even before reaching his adulthood. Thankfully Yuujin will be with him, and he doesn't need to eat. One mouth less to feed, and two hands more to work/steal...

HAHAHAHA TOO REAL lool

Anyways, now that you mention it, I think that's exactly the main point of the series. Is Artifical Intelligence really a progress? If we want to keep life as we know it, NO; If we want to prevent the world from collapsing in the near future, then YES.
