Ranamon's Tenacity! Female Digimon Personal Combat! (JP)Zoe's Unbeelievable Adventure (EN) Dub Writer: Seth Walther Original Airdates:October 6, 2002 (JP)February 13, 2003 (EN) Gear's Notes (2021): It bears mentioning that my stance on the dub has softened a bit since this was written, especially since I started comparing Data Squad. The writers, despite getting a lot of blame from me, are really not to blame for...
Tomoki's Lonely Battle - Asuramon's Trap!(JP)The Dark Heart of Friendship (EN) Dub Writer: Terri-Lei O'Malley Original Airdates:September 29, 2002 (JP)February 12, 2003 (EN) Gear's Notes: Is it just me, or is this the most dramatic dub title ever? I give it credit, though: the episode has a "twist" that is spoiled by the Japanese title. Granted, anyone watching over the age of 12 figured it...
Confrontation, Volcamon! Junpei's Battle with his Past (JP)Alone, but Never Alone (EN) Dub Writers: Steve Blum Original Airdates:September 22, 2002 (JP)February 10, 2003 (EN) Gear's Notes: I actually like that title. It sums up the plot pretty well. Steve Blum's writing the story seems appropriate considering this episode's subject matter. I like this episode a lot, despite what flaws it may have, because it is JP-centered....
Feel the Power of Digimon! Takuya's Full-Body Strategy (JP)Sockit Takuya (EN) Dub Writers: Dave Wittenberg Original Airdates:September 10, 2002 (JP)February 11, 2003 (EN) Agunimon returns to the Digital World. JP, Zoe, and Tommy have been captured by Ranamon and Mercurymon in his absence, and are being tickle-tortured (yes, tickle-tortured) into giving up their spirits and the locations of Koji and Takuya while a group of...
My Home! Takuya's Lonely Return (JP)Home Again, Takuya Returns (EN) Dub Writer: Michael Sorich Original Airdates:September 8, 2002 (JP)December 19, 2002 (EN) Gear's Notes: Looks like the dub decided to do the two-part title that the Japanese version usually does. It's pretty similar to the other version, too. Though I think this episode would have been cooler if some of Flamemon's antics had been visible in...
Total Destruction of Five Warriors?! Terrifying Dark Power (JP)Darkest Before Duskmon (EN) Dub Writer: Seth Walther Original Airdates:September 1, 2002 (JP)December 18, 2002 (EN) Gear's Notes: Oh crap, they found one decent episode title and now they're going to run it into the ground. Immediately following Arbormon's demise, Duskmon demands that the kids show them their power. BurningGreymon charges in, but is taken out in...
Mystery Warrior Hidden in Darkness: Duskmon (JP)From Dawn to Duskmon (EN) Dub Writer: Michael Sorich Original Airdates:August 25, 2002 (JP)December 17, 2002 (EN) Gear's Notes: I'd say it's a pretty good title. And we're finally done with those filler episodes, and moving back to the main plot! I am so glad to be able to put those behind me. Today's English version was written by: Michael...
Save The Burgermon! Tomoki's Pure Heart (JP)You Want Fries With That? (EN) Dub Writers: Steve Blum Original Airdates:August 18, 2002 (JP)December 16, 2002 (EN) Gear's Notes: Meh, the title's passable by American Titulation Standards. (Is Titulation even a word?) At any rate, this is the second of the two filler episodes in the series at this point, and I'm personally not too fond of this one,...
Choo Choo! The Great Trailmon Race(JP)Trailmon vs. Trailmon (EN) Dub Writers: Dave Wittenburg Original Airdates:August 11, 2002 (JP)November 22, 2002 (EN) This episode is filler through and through, and not particularly good filler. Even the best dub writers would have trouble making this episode enjoyable. The Kids' trip to the Rose Morning Star is interrupted when they're prematurely kicked off the Trailmon they're riding. They...
Blizzarmon, Blow the Snow, Call the Glaciers! (JP)Bizarre Bazaar (EN) Dub Writer: Seth Walther Original Airdates:August 4, 2002 (JP)November 21, 2002 (EN) Hm. Seems our writer friends can't avoid the pop culture references unless they use bad puns. Then again, I think Korikakumon Blows would probably be a lot worse... Then again, the titles usually do "suck with teeth," don't they? The kids arrive at the Autumn...
