Digimon Tamers Review

One day a boy named Takato got a blue Digimon card and when he scanned it turned his card scanner to a Digivice and brought to life a his drawing, and him with other Digidestined Henry and Rika must fight Digimon that comes to the real world. Now Digimon Tamers is the first Digimon season that is not a continuation of the first 2 seasons but rather a different season. Now Tamers is looked as being the BEST SEASON EVER or the WORST SEASON EVER. Mainly it has to do with the D-Reaper Saga. Is Tamers a great break away from the first 2 seasons? Is Tamers that good or bad? and is Tamers worthy of having the Prodigious Award (unless you skip to the final verdict)? well let's be real with Digimon Tamers.
Episode 1: "Guilmon Comes Alive", the series begins with 2 Digimons fighting but we see that it is 2 kids playing Digimon cards and in the Tamers universe Digimon is a card game and cartoon just like the real world. We are also introduce to are goggle headed leader Takato and he finds a Blue card and when he scans it turns his card scanner and it turns into the D-arc the Digivice of this season and it is currently my favorite Digivice, and it scans a picture he draw called Guilmon and when his D-arc scans it and it brings Guilmon to life. and Guilmon is like a baby and thinks like a new born would, we then meet along the ways our other protagonist Henry with his partner Terriermon and Rika and her partner Renamon and the plot starts out slow and the monster of the week. Episode 14: "Grow Mon Grow" Hypnos the villain for the first arc of the season explains that Digimon were programs that became advance forms and was not able to be control but then shutdown and became a cartoon/ card game. And then the man who in charge of the Digimon district Yamaki is now had enough of these motherfucking Digimon in the motherfucking real world, with the Digimon and activated the juggernaut project to overdrive and delegating all Digimon. and it is stopped and out from the portal is a Digimon named Mihiramon who is one of the 12 Devas and they are model after the chines Zodiac, who are here to kill the humans. The blue card comes back and shows the ultimate evolution, and latter on we see  Biomerge Elevation where the Digimon and the human becomes one, and this was done before frontier did it. Episode 28: "Blame it on Ryo" Now after calumon was taken back to the Digital World (which I am just saying this the Tamers Digital world is my lease favorite, it is just to chaotic) and when Rika is separated from the others she then meets Ryo who is another Digimon Tamer. Now many people have argue that Ryo is combining the first 3 season because Ryo was in Ken flash back in Zero Two and even in a quick scene in Digimon "Our War Game", I have a link to show what I mean (, also Ryo's Biomerge elevation is a homage to Kamen Rider with the scarf and design that looks like showa designs and his right hand is like Rider Man. Episode: 38 "Azulongmon Explains It All" when the Digimon Tamers meet the solver Zhuqiaomon (who is races to humans) who been sending the Devas to earth, and why he dose this and the final enemy a virus called the D-reaper created by humans. and in the final Arc the D-reaper Arc, and calumon is the secret to digivolution. and all Digimon turns to Mega level, and the tamers going back to the real world so that the Digimon can fight this. But Jeri after Leomon die (O MY GOD they killed Lemon YOU BASTERS) became depress and the D-reaper fed on her sadness. And then the plot for the rest of the show is trying to stop the D-reaper. Episode 51: "Such Sweet Sorrow" In the final episode the D-reaper is defeated by Terriermon with a chip to revers time and stops the D-reaper and Jeri is saved by Gallantmon crimson mode. And has a sad ending which I will not ruin for you and you should see for your self's. also in the final scene where Takato sees a portal to the Digital World, I have always consider that for Takato going to be in Digimon Hunters.
The Charters
Takato: Takato is a bit of a cry baby, he gets emotional a lot and cry's sometime at the point where it makes you laugh, but to be hones given the realness of the show you do understand it, and latter on in the show he dose show become more braver. Now I want to say something impotent him and Guilmon have so far the best relationship out of any Digimon and partner because Guilmon is Takato creation, he is like Guilmon's father. He is voiced by Brian Beacock who voiced Mr. White from Tenkai Knights and also would latter voiced Agumon in Digimon Data Squad.
Henry: Henry is calm and a pacifist. He doesn't want Terriermon to fight because in the Tamers world when Digimon die in the real world they are not turn back to Digiegg but stay DEAD. and over time he lighten up, he is also more logical. His partner Terriermon is just fun loving and say momentai (means relax) a lot where it annoys you so much. he is voiced by Dave Wittenbers who also did the voice of Kefka form FF12 and Doc Sailto from Tiger and bunny.
Rika: Rika is the first female lone wolf, she starts out as cold blooded and wants to kill Digimon to get stronger and becomes the Digimon queen. But near the end she becomes open up and accepts people, you can tell from that since she wares a complete heart. her partner Renamon is to guide her. She is voiced by Melissa Fahn who was also Gaz from Invader Zim.

Side charters : Side Charters are kazu and kenta, Jeri, calumon, Yamaki and Ryo. With some voice actors like  Bridget Hoffman, Derek Stephen Prince, and Steve Blum just to name a few

The Music
The music for Tamers was amazing with the Biggest Dreamer as a great opening, Slash is good to listen to, EVO is a rocken song to hear, and One Version is pure awesomeness, My Tomorrow is the nieces end song to listen to, my only complaint with the soundtrack is Days (the 2nd end song) is not my favorite. I can not say the same for the American soundtrack since it is the same as the first season just remix but the biomerge transformation song is good to listen to. Digi-Ranger jukebox recommendations: One Vision (Gallantmon matrix evolution version)

The Good
The Premise: For Tamers the premise is it is real life, with some things like referencing the show, creating your own Digimon. This show is the most realistic Digimon season that can exits.

Beelzemon: Beelzemon is a AWESOME charter, starting out as Impmon (who was a troll) who resented humans since 2 little kids treated him badly but they were kids and brother and sister and  wanted to Digivolve  badly he pretty much makes a deal with the devil and he becomes Beelzemon and he is a killer in a horror movie just kills everything in his path. but he then turns good and is even more powerful.
The Bad
The Pasting: The pasting for this show is super slow, I mean the begging just drags, the middle is more coherent, and the final episodes just drags out for filler till episode 51.

Jeri charter during the final arc: during the final story arc Jeri becomes the biggest Emo in history. I their were chances where should could be saved and end the show but she would not except Leomon death. she pretty much becomes Shinji Ikari from Evangelion.
The D-reaper Saga

I have mix feelings about the D-Reaper Saga. On one hand this was something different and new for Digimon as a villain. but on the other hand it is more syfy and would be in like a since fiction story and not a Digimon story, I see DR. Who fighting this thing then Digimon.
Final verdict
It has a lot going for this series, but it dose drag.
Tamers is looked as the best of the best, but for me it good but defiantly dose drag. but if you want a slower and realistic show then this if for you. For reconditions if you want another show done by the same animator then I recommend The Big O. And if you want another show that is more like the D-reaper Arc then I recommend Neon Genesis Evangelion.
 I hoped you enjoy the review, Come back for updates fallow me on twitter, like me on Facebook, and momentai

The Best and Worst of 2013

Happy 2014 my blog readers it is now 2014 and the end of 2013 and this wa a good year for many fans of tokusatsu, toy and a year to talk about. and since i havent done many own option things i thought i might do this, and i will be posting 10 good things and top 5 bad things about 2013, also i may have not seen some of these things and this is things i have seen and looked at.
Honorable Mention befoe we begian i should say this first, JEFusion founder GekiDan resently pass away on December 30th 2013 and it is a shame he die but he did leave a legacy so he should be rember.
#10 S.H. Figuarts Renewal Figures
Picture fom TokuNations
 This year was the year that Figuarts got a new mold and a lot more show accurate. And it can be said for the Kamen Rider Bike too with both Kamen Rider Black and Battle Hopper being release and also Bluefin has given those a release. And the Next ones to be release as I am writing this is Black RX with Acrobatter and Kabuto.
#9 Kyoryuger
 I will admit this have only seen 15 episode of Kyoryuger but it was a nice sentai show for parts I have seen. the toy line is really cool to with the batteries, but their is a problem with the Mecha line and that is the pins break easily but the batteries and other things are good. 
#8 Legacy Power Ranger Toys
 For a long time people have complain about not getting sentai toys in the US some time in Samurai and we now have something like that with the Legacy toys also celebrating the power Rangers 20th anniversary.
#7 More Power Rangers Legacy toys
Picture fom TokuNaions
 It is still great that we are still getting more Legacy things even if they cost $80.00 (BECAUSE EVERYONE LOVES TOMMY) and we may even get Legacy toys from otter seasons, picture it a Legacy Quasar Saber, or even a Legacy Crystal Saber.
#6 The Legendary War
Picture from RangerCrew
 With Power Ranger Super Megaforce being this year it is great that we have some recurring actors with even the Titanium Ranger being in the battle. and nice having vitrine rangers being in the Legendary war.
#5 Power Rangers Megaforce
I liked Megaforce it was a good season, we had nice charters, a effected villain with another effect villain even if Metal Alice did not have that much scream time. and it was good with some great toys by Bandai of America. but if you don't agree with me can we at lease compromise that this was a HUGE step up from Samurai and Super Samurai because Samurai SUCKS.
#4 Shout Factory Power Rager DVD
Picture from RangerCrew
It is great that that Shout Factory is still doing the Power Ranger DVD's and al the other content the DVD's have. I do hope it can be said for the Big Bad Beetle Borges DVD's and hope they do get attrition
 #3Kamen Rider Gaim
 So far Gaim is a awesome Kamen Rider Show, the Lock toy is awesome, the charters are great to, and over all a good Kamen Rider for this year.
#2 Titanium Ranger Day 
Picture from RangerCew
This was mainly a promotion for the new Power Rangers ACG but this was also fans changed their avatar to the Titanium Ranger and I do hope in the future we do get a Titanium Ranger US key  and may even get a Titanium Range Figure art soon (or even Lightspeed Rescue Figuarts soon).

This blog owes a lot to Digimon Fusion, I get a lot of my numbers on this blog without my Digimon Fusion episode reviews, it is great because Digimon fusion made me rewatch the whole franchise and became a fan of Digimon again. So that is why this is #1 on this list.
#5 S.H. Figuarts Renewal Figures
Picture fom TokuNations
I know that I put this on my top 10 best for 2013 nut this is also worth noting, if you are a completes for Figuarts then you are back at square 1.
#4 DaiRanger Figuarts & Wizard Figuarts
 Their are some Figuarts in the line that dose not do well like the Bokunger Figuarts for example but it still is descent but in the wizard line their was only 1 good mold (white wizard) and the Wizard line suffers from bad proportions and the figure looks awful. And for Dairanger Figuart it is also awful to look at in the arms and it is not all that great.  
#3 power ranger toys not release in stores
 Their was a bunch of things that was not release in stores like the Vrak and Loogies figures not being release, one of the ACG was not release till November or December, and their was no Gosei Jet Megazord anywhere to be sited.
#2 the none stop wizard rings
Picture from TokuNations
 Their was A LOT of rigs and also A LOT of wizard forms and they did not stop 1 bit, it is a con I have with Wizard in general.
#1 the none stop Ranger Keys
picture from TokuNations
It was announce on ToukNations that their was even more Ranger Keys to be release soon and I am now tired of so Many Ranger Keys like this, at lease with Super Megaforce it will be different.
