Digimon Marathon: Revenge of Diaboromon. You can never keep a good devil down

One thing of note about a lot of the Digimon movies, is that they aren't full movies length wise. So as a slightly longer episode, how does the sequel to Our War Game fair? Time to review Digimon: Revenge of Diaboromon.

(No cover as I can't find one that I can confirm to be the cover)

The plot? Believed to be set after the events of Zero Two's finale (that's my story, I'm sticking to it), Kuramon have been escaping the internet attached to e-mails with photos of Tai and Matt, claiming that they're looking for them. Izzy calls all the Digi destined together (minus Joe, Mimi and Sora so yes, they are the only three not to have any plot relevant roles in all four movies) alerting them that a new Diaboromon has appeared on the internet and is the source of all the Kuramon. Tai, Matt (and later on) T.K and Kairi go in to stop this new Diaboromon while Davis, Ken, Yolei and Cody hunt down the Koramon. When Diaboromon is stabbed again by Omnimon, all the Kuramon still online escape into the real world. Millions of Kuramon start moving to the nearby harbor with the Digi Destined in pursuit. The Kuramon merge into Armageddemon (THANKYOU, YOU DID YOUR JOB THIS TIME!!! Kinda... he's never actually named in the movie...) and proceed to shut down Omnimon. Davis and Ken arrive in the harbor, DNA Digivolve Veemon and Wormon (Davis and Ken's partner respectivly) into Imperialdramon and thanks to, you guessed it, more Deus Ex Machina, Imperialdramon with Omnimon's strength kills (I'm not bothering to spell that name again), separating it back into Kuramon. Yolei somehow manages to hack into every cell phone in the area and uses them to absorb all the Kuramon before it can reform itself.

For a normal episode of the show, its about on par with the main series and a massive improvement over Digimon the Movie. It's also the introduction to a new theme for the show, which I'll cover in a few weeks. This is the only time I actually like the Zero Two cast, purely because its actually focusing on their strengths more so then their weaknesses like in the last third of Digimon the Movie. At the end of the day though, its a episode of the TV show, with the animation of the movie. Not much more I can say on it. Come Wednesday, its time we almost completely ignore what has just happened, new universe where what we've just seen are shows and films as well. I hope you know how to play the card game, Digimon Tamers.
