I did not get the impression that the episode tried to make her cute, I got the impression that they showed a glimpse of how messed up she probably is with how she tampered with the virtual talismans and didn't quite care about Kiyoshiro's well-being earlier on. Kiyoshiro did get fed up with her considering she kept telling him to run away (edit: and monopolized on his fears considering she was singing about him dying via Vedhaka at one point), but you can't do much else when a Perfect-level digimon is coming for your head.First bad episode of Ghost Game IMO. Jellymon came off as an unbearable brat and the episode tried too hard (and failed) to make her look cute. The pacing returned to the shit pacing that Adventure: had, jumping straight into action and comedy while completely ditching the horror atmosphere and serious build up that made the previous episodes good. The worst part though is Kiyoshiro's character arc. Any development that he may have had in regards to becoming less of a coward is negated by him still being Jellymon's little bitch. Am I supposed to believe that he can stand up to a giant dragon but he can't stand up to a little jellyfish bully? And why did none of the characters bring up the fact that she was the one that should have been punished by Majiramon, not Kiyoshiro? How comes everyone just lets her go without even an apology after almost getting Kiyoshiro killed? The only answer I can seem to find for these questions is the writers want to continue with the trope of Jellymon bullying his tamer for easy laughs so they sacrifice everything else for that sake.
Speaking of that, the virtual talismans were Kyoshiro's creation, and Majiramon focused more on its origin.
It's fine to not like a character, though. It's just that it doesn't feel like the episode intended to make Jellymon "cute".
