then why did MetalTyrannomon keep the missiles?
That thing also bothering me. I assumed that they missed that. Do you know that episode 10 has the worst quality control and bad quality animation right? Alongside with episode 4.
That is literally impossible. The whole sequence of them attacking MetalTyranomon over and over and especially Greymon seemingly landing a hit only to be pushed back by a missile was one of the central sequences of the episode, it was the climax of of the "Greymon" part of the fight and a last grand statement of the power-gap between Adult and Perfect level before the protagonists made it to that stage, there is nothing about that anyone could have just missed; that would be like arguing that the original light saber duel between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader in the original Star Wars was only left in by mistake.
I also disagree about your claim about animation and quality control. Besides a few shoddy shots you'll find in almost any episode episode 10 had pretty good animation, easily in the upper half of episodes so far, as it should have as the big Perfect debut. There was good looking movement, characters were pretty much on model even from greater distances and the actual scene of MetalGreymon's debut and him taking out MetalTyranomon still rank as some of the most fluid and detailed sequences the anime has produced to date, even if it was disappointingly short.
People who say Episode 10 was poorly animated, don't know good animation.
Maybe that "people" has plenty anime with good animation as his/her references. Sorry for that. Peace!

And on the "miasma confusion" front... apparently the miasma can also be a weapon??
Miasma is like lightning, radiation, and time travel, it does whatever the writers need it to do this week even if it makes no sense.

They've already established MetalGreymon is slow
No they didn't, during the Metaltyrannomon fight it fucking teleported a couple hundred meters into the sky.

Good animation by the standards of Toei, maybe. But they'll fix it for the DVD, as usual.

When fighting Andromon, he couldn't even touch him.

Well, if it isn't Birdrataximon again. Either Group B has to travel a lot further, or Group A is seemingly riding their partners off-screen.

Shagged out, she quickly makes a landing (much to the relief of the animation team ) and it's not long until our antagonist of the week plods into view with some evil snowmen. Fortunately, Weregarurumon makes shor-oh wait never mind...

Elsewhere, and with a stark change of environment, things take an unpleasant turn for the Taichi and Koushiro. Who realize too late that Mimi has managed to escape her chains, and with her carer literally in tow, attempts to run the boys down whilst trying to make it look like an accident.

Why are you concerned about fire harming Sora, Garurumon? Did you not see what she did a few episodes back? :p
To note, the ice infection effect does rather put me in mind of something similar that happened to Yoshino.
Although this is seemingly meant to be a Joe focused episode, the idea of acting as a distraction does seem a lot better suited to Yamato and his partner (a similar issue I had with episode 10). Joe is the medical specialist after all, which certainly makes him a lot more qualified to look after Sora. In addition, Ikkakumon offers better warmth and transport over the terrain.
Then again we would have been robbed of the opportunity to see them attempt to evade the forces of evil in a manner that would make Michael (Eagle) Edwards proud.


"But I be done seen 'bout ev'rything, when I see a Mammon
attempting the Kongsberger Technique!"

The romp eventually comes to an end, as (like with episode 10 again) the plan proves ultimately pointless. Mammon has been led back to the rest of the group, where Yamato has 'thoughtfully' provided a marker. Well, you know how this goes by now.

Gyahh! Naked Zudomon! It's almost like Sailor Moon, but with a giant Walrus/Turtle thingie...

Well apart from some casual observations, I don't really have much to say. I found it neither a particularly bad nor good episode. Just one that somewhat felt like it was going through the motions. With the only actual interesting stuff happening right at the very end.
The group encounter a Digimon too strong for them, and so spend a sizable chunk of run-time trying to get away from it, until Joe pulls his finger out and has his partner effortlessly kick its backside.

Maybe it's largely due to the fact I'm suffering a bit of evolution fatigue by this point. In that it's not so much an event I look forward to any more in this reboot, but rather something I'm just glad to get out of the way.
I guess the most positive thing I can say is that I at least found it somewhat better compared to Group B's previous track record, barring some questionable animation quality.

Now we have the last 3rd evo except for the angel kids. So why are one team in Japan and how is that explained in this week's ep. ...I thought Zudomon would have evo'd with him hammer instead of calling it like some kind of Thor/He-Man.
