Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

Done.

I might need to look into Savers then. I loved Tamers, but I can't get into any of the other stuff. Even the first season was dry and a bit more kiddy than I'd prefer. (Y'know, digivolving in the first season was forming Voltron from the get-go. The first time a main character digivolves in Tamers, it's a bad thing.)

Savers has that problem too at first.
Most of the fights in the first "arc" basically follow the formula of: Masaru finds a way to punch the MOTW-> Agumon evolves into GeoGreymon-> GeoGreymon OHKOs the enemy.

I haven't watched it since it aired, but I think that part gets better after they go to the digital world.

I didn't mind the Monster of the Week format. It let us get to know the characters before thrusting them into world saving shenanigans.

Plus some of those episodes explore how sometimes a digimon and a human meeting one another isn't always a GOOD thing. But then, by that point, I was weary a bit of how in other canons digimon always appeared only before children and the mostly good and decent. Savers defies that a lot, both showing adults with digimon partners and that sometimes a digimon and a human don't always have the noblest of reasons for being together.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Oh, I liked the episodes, but a lot of people justifiably didn't like how the fights were handled.
I did, but that was mainly because I thought Masaru having to punch digimon was incredibly amusing.

For some reason - possibly it was where the sub group I was using started? - the first I saw of Savers was MachGaogamon's debut, and it was pretty strong from that point on (though I stopped watching for no reason at all around when ElDoradimon appeared).

I just hit episodes 10/11 of Xros Wars, and wow... I don't think I ever expected Daipenmon to appear in the anime. I've come to adore Xros Wars dropping levels because it gives them so much leeway to use any Digimon they want.

Yay, a Digimon thread!

Given my dislike of anime, I bet a lot of people will be surprised, but I like Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif Granted, I am still lagging behind in watching series 2, but I have seen this and that from all series. I enjoy the concept of the programs/data on the internet being actually intelligent evolving creatures in another dimension that we can interact with. Plus, the creature designs are usually awesome. Generally, Digimon blows Pokemon out of the water in regards to storytelling (I stopped watching, but did Team Rocket ever came even close to capturing Pikatchu... and why do they want it so badly?), characters (too many favourites to name) and actually speaking creatures (the main flaw of Pokemon that just makes it uninteresting to me, after all, it's like the world of a 1000 Armada cartoon Minicons).

Heck, I like it so much, one day I got inspired and drew the various phases of Shockwave, if he was a Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif

I think I'm going to have to re-watch Savers soon.
I say it is my favorite series, but I've seen the others more recently. Might be good to refresh my memory of it.


Plus I watched most of the last arc RAW due to impatience.
Had to read onkeikun's summaries after each episode to get an idea of what was going on.

Optikkmon is a floral Beholder?
Oculomon is a Beast Machines Diagnostic Drone?

Just saying I watched Summer Wars (yes, just NOW. Yes, I know there was a thread here months ago). Digimon nostaaaaalgia! It's seriously what Our War Game aka Digimon Movie 2 was suppose to be if it wasn't tied to Digimon?

I stopped Xcros Wars after the Volcanomon episode. Before Dorulu, Drilleomon's origin. Shoutmon annoys me so much so I quit. I'll watch it complete some time in the future.

Savers wasn't that bad. Hated that the 'tamers' were older kids. Loved the seeing old Digimon cameos. Tamers is still the best. Then Adventure 01. Eeh on Frontier. I can't even remember the name of the two Tamer less Digimon sidekicks (Bokumon?).

Hey, she gets them when she merges with Rika. I mean, I like to think that those are Renamon's.

Shockemon is adorable. I did a similar thing ages and ages ago with Pikachu once (taking Pichu as "fresh" and so on, and then doing champion and ultimate forms for him.)

I think I'm sold on making an attempt with Savers, though. It sounds Tamers-y enough to try, and I like the idea of adults with Digimon partners.

This week's new fan-made digimon winner: Footmon



A soccer themed Beelzebmon? How odd. That's interesting that the original didn't really have any Beelzebmon elements, but Bandai's reinterpretation added them in. At least it doesn't have the third demon eye.

Well, I kinda hope we never see Footmon again. =)

Savers never really caught my interest. I didn't find any of the characters to be likable, and didn't find the hero's organization to be much better than the first villain's group, so watching it was kind of a chore. I think I kept up until the Eldoradimon episodes or so, then got busy and just never went back. One of these days I'll finish it.

That I actually liked better, because then the kids were less cheerleaders and got more involved.

I guess that's part of why I like Xros Wars so much, because Taiki and Kiriha often get their hands dirty, and hell Zenjirou even swung a sword about.

PM me if you're bored!
