Digimon Adventure by RW09 Digimon Adventure by RW09
Let me explain the crests: in my country (Portugal) Mimi has the crest of Innocence and Jou has Sincerity (Adventure) and Loyalty (Zero Two). I don't exactly follow my country's dub because I grew up with the japanese raws I found online, but I decided to follow it here.

In Japan
1) Mimi has the "Junshin no monshou (純真の紋章 ) - crest of Purity
2) Jou has the "Seijitsu no monshou" (誠実の紋章 ) - crest of Loyalty/ Sincerity/ Reliability/ Honestly. Jou's crest is actually hard to translate in other languages.

I'm aware the U.S. version has different names for the crests, but I don't have reasons to follow it. I've watched this version once and I dislike the general changes of it. I'm sorry.

I hope this clear things up.

Out of all the crests, I think I preferred Tai's Crest of Courage. While the orange scheme represented his courage and sometimes hot blooded recklessness, the symbol also represented the sun and the element of fire. Which is evident in Tai's digimon partner Agumon especially when he digivolves to Greymon or War Greymon.

:D I love the symbology of this symbol the most; not only it's related to my favourite element fire, the Sun is also an old symbol for leadership. (and I'm way too obsessed about this haha)
kennedy92 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014
Given that the Sun is also related to the Zodiac Astrology, that may in fact hint at Tai being a Leo. He may have been reckless and hot-blooded, he ultimately was a very loyal friend to his teammates and had the courage neccesary as a leader. Even if sometimes the choices and actions he took didn't always sit lightly with his friends particularly Matt. But because of an incident when he was younger in which his sister Kari nearly died of Pneumonia, he always finds himself in need to help others even his actions speak much louder than his words.

Isn't Joe's crest supposed to be reliability?

Amazing! I always wondered why Mimi's crest was changed though. It made no sense to me, but oh well.

Straight to Favorites! :D

Germany used reliability for Jou, which is "Zuverlässigkeit" in German. I always found that... weird :D It's such a long and strange word compared to the other crests.
As for Mimi, she had "Aufrichtigkeit" which I guess is equal to sincerity... Purity surprises me though, I always thought Hikari's "light" was a symbol for purity and innocence :hmm:
RW09 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't blame you, it took me a while to get it how can Light be a virtue the same way the others are. That was until Taoism took over my mind and I finally realized this 'Light' is supposed to be the manifestation of the being. This light is the manifestation of one's True Will so to speak. Suddenly Hikari's talk of «Light and Darkness are too sides of a coin» on episode 45 started to make sense all of a sudden. But this isn't a cult to our typical western Machiavellianism either. The way Taoism looks at duality is very different indeed...

Oh, so that's where it comes from.
It would have been nicer if they had "darkness" as a crest then, too. They could have worked with Ken. Having him struggle with his dark side would have made a great plot. He could have realized at some point that darkness is part of this world just as light is, and by this understanding finally activated his crest.

Thank you for the explanation :)

I still love your art by the way. I'm not as active on dA anymore, but I am always so happy when I see new art of yours :hug:

*«Light and Darkness are two sides of a coin» I mean.
Actually, she says something like «If there's Light, there has to be Shadows. The problem rises when darkness takes over.» which implies the problem isn't the fact darkness exists. It's just the fact there's too much of it. We need both to balance the world though.

TkieSai Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012
Yeah I was about to ask why Mimi's crest here says innocence when in the US verson its cencerity(sp) but that cleared it up:3 so nevermind I guessXD

Cool drawings by the way:3
i like it but mimi is sincerity and joe is reliability
JadedFeather Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
Not necessarily, in the Japanese version Jyou had Sincerity and Mimi had Purity. In the U.S. version Sincerity was given to Mimi and Jyou's crest was re-named Reliability.

Like RW09 said in the description, it's difficult to translate those two into other languages. So in other countries, they have different names for the crests.
ShadowCrisis09 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2012
Umm. I'm not sure what it was in the original Japanese but I know in the dub Mimi is Sincerity and Joe is Reliability.

Ken should be in the middle. But sadly that's the reason O2 was created. The lost Ninth child. q a q

But this is still good, nonetheless! :D
