Digimon Savers Year: 2006 Dub Voices of: Quinton Flynn,Coleen O'Shaughnessy,Crispin Freeman,Brianne Sidalle Grade:A- ...Grace this season of Digimon.Starting with the latter,the characters harken very much back to the first three seasons. Between Marcus the slightly-more-fleshed-out Davis expy,Thomas the very nicely done Matt-Izzy hybrid, and Yoshi the subtle mix of Sora and believe it or not Jeri. And then you have episode bits that really harken back such as the fight between Thomas and Marcus which very nicely molds both the tension between Tai and Matt, and Takato's reaction to the predictable death of Leomon. Finally the last episode begins in a manner sadly much like the conclusion of the second season,but it ends much like Tamers did. And finally Agumon is thrown back in,but he acts like Guilmon. And so at the same time,it is very original many of these throwbacks written as they are under different premises. For example the D-Reaper throwback was now relegated to a monster and without any punch-clock motives. No characters get left in the dust and end up all being really interesting. Marcus is always throwing punches,but there is a good reason,other than the obvious. The action is very nice. And it does indeed touch on very deep themes to such as - What if dishonest humans exploited Digimon? - Is world peace possible? - Are humans bastards? - Parental Abandonment And that's only for starters,it also has one the greatest villains in all anime. Even more monstrous than Myotismon,which is no easy feat,and he is,.....Kurata. Ugly looking,hypocritical,genocidal,this is the villain that you can't help but love hating,there really hasn't been a more delicious character in the whole franchise. Great part of the originality But the best part is that finally knowing that Leomon always dies,they deliberately had an unsympathetic one,but true to the course their was also a sacrificial one as well,and it managed to be even wrenching than the last. It's doesn't deserve any of the hate it gets,even if it may seem unoriginal at times,it just works. Get off that Nostalgia Filter and give it a go.
