Episode 21 by RW09 Episode 21 by RW09
This was made after rewatching Adventure's episode 21. I think this is my favourite digimon episode... ever (reasons). This one was directed by Mr. Hosoda Mamoru, the man who directed the first two digimon films.

Wonderful work! ^^

The whole episode looks so different and much more eerie - it was actually this and the second digimon movie that made me connect Mamoru Hosada to "Summer Wars" (which is very similar in style) and "Toki wo kakero no shoujo" (which I then watched because I had come to really like Hosada's style).
It was a very beautiful episode.

Best Agumon and Tai episode ever .
Without hesitation or doubt .
Agree with your note too.

Thanks for posting

I rather enjoy your style; not to mention Director Hosoda Mamoru's style with those films and later work.

I think this is a great drawing.

My favorite episode as well! It's really just a straight out fan favorite, especially for people who love Tai! The lines in that episode, along with the true emotion and feeling when Tai had to leave Kari behind; the helplessness Tai felt as his world crumbled around him, and as the episode foreshadowed such an incredible darkness to befall both worlds.... I could go on for a lifetime about my love for that episode, and your drawing perfectly depicts how Tai'd be feeling when he returned to the Digital World.

Darn, when I watched Digimon last time was years ago... I can't remember the story much. -.- But I think I remember this part... is this the episode that Taichi decided to go back into Digital World?
But yes, Mr. Hosoda Mamoru is a great director; all the movies and such made by him are great! I am yet to watch Summer Wars and others, but the Wolf Children was very interesting to watch. :3

Fully in agreement on best Digimon episode.  This is really nice.  I might use it as a wallpaper. ^^

La la la la  amazing workFangirl Emote
Immatureboys Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
Yeah I remember that episode, Tai get separated from the whole group. And everyone tries to endure without him, even if Tai is happy to be back in his own world. It's a great episode. Your artwork really tells that episode from a creative perspective.

Also one of my favorite episodes. (Not at all caused by the fact that I love anything directed by Hosoda Mamoru). Your attention to detail is great! You even remembered that his gloves were in his back pocket (something I didn't catch for a long time in the episode).

OMG So adorable!!I love it
JadedFeather Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012
I remember that made me feel sad, especially for Hikari. If I was in Taichi's shoes I wouldn't want to leave, after finally coming home and seeing my parents again.

That must've been quite a dilemna for him, but then again, if he hadn't come back the digidestined would've remained split up for who knows how long! xD
RW09 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank for commenting! :XD: I love when that episode explored those feelings, it's somehow hard to imagine a 11-year-old would act the way Taichi did, but I think this is the interesting part of Adventure - the actions of its character can be enjoy by the adult public as well!

And your comment made me wonder, "What if Taichi didn't go back to the Digital World?". Oh boy, the fanfic potential... it would be so cool, everyone thinking Taichi were dead and having to fight against Vandemon/Myotismon all alone, being warned by Gennai there's an eight digidestined to fill Taichi's place, only to find out he's alive........ *w*" *is shot due to day dreaming*
xDDD This would be really cool is done the right way!
JadedFeather Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012
You have just inspired me!

I was thinking about writing 2 separate Digimon fanfics but now, I can see the potential of merging them together with the 'What if' scenario...

Oh man, how would I spin this? It took great courage on Taichi's part to go back and leave Hikari, but would it be the same to stay and refuse to go back? Or would he be called a coward? Oh the possibilities...

Episode 21 is one of the reasons that season 1 is the best.
Mind you that the episode is not perfect. In one point in the episode we are treated to static background seen in which people are frozen in place while Taichi finds out where he is (in the foreground).

Wow this is beautiful!

This was just about the best episode in the season, and the picture captures the feel of it perfectly.
