2021.09.26 01:33 tpcguts What makes a GREAT Digimon series?

I'm bored so I've been thinking about some of the reasons why certain seasons of Digimon is so fondly remembered, while others aren't. It's pretty much agreed by most fans that the first 3 season of Digimon represented the peak of the franchise, and the franchise haven't reached those peaks in years if not decades.
While it's a good thing every new series of Digimon tries something new, I think Digimon is a franchise that many writers are finding it hard to figure out why the first 3 season were such huge success. Even a director in charge of continuing the original 2 series stories, namely Tri seems to have failed to grasp the reasons for success.
So here's some of my reasons:

  1. The bond between kids and Digimon
Unlike Pokemon, Digimon is really all about the bonds between human kids and their Digimon partner. While the idea of bonds between trainer and Pokemon is something that has become a part of the franchise with mega-evolution, it's an idea that is a fundamental part of Digimon first and foremost.
Pokemon is all about collecting them all, and building a good team to win matches. But Digimon is first and foremost about having just one Digimon and learning to bond with them. Its origins lies in V-Pets, where people are supposed to raise them up from birth. How your Digimon evolve in its original incarnation really depends on how well you took care of it.
Hence the reason why seasons where those bonds being central to the plot simply do not do well with the fans and general audience alike. Frontier made the mistake of allowing humans to transform into Digimon, and forgot what made Digimon so special as a franchise in the first place. Xros Wars focused too much on the "collect them all", making it more about collecting all the Digimons rather than focusing on how the bond between human and their Digimon partner can allow both to become stronger.
While the reboot does reintroduce this concept back to the franchise, it has its problems which leads me to point number 2.

2. It's about kids learning and growing
Tying Digimon's evolution to the kids inner strengths is perhaps the best idea the original writers came up with. It turns a game mechanic/plot device (digivolution) into a vehicle for character growth. It creates an actual sense of adventure and journey for the kids as they themselves evolve and change as the story develop. The best Digimon seasons are not just about how the Digimon got stronger, but also how the kids themselves become stronger and better.
And this is why some season doesn't stick as strongly as others. The 2020 reboot and Xros Wars falls into a trap of not giving the main kids much room to grow. Certain characters are literally too perfect for there to be any real character growth. The end result is while you get to see how the Digimon unlock more digivolution with each episode, the kids practically stayed where they were before.
Whereas the reason the OG adventure managed to have appeal beyond its original season was because the kids have grown up and we want to see more of how they are like as older versions of themselves. It creates long-lasting appeal.
Even Tamers that did not get a sequel series always have demands by fans to see a sequel, simply because its character developed and grow with the series. There is a hunger for more of those characters as they become "alive" in the eyes of the fans. And being alive brings me to my 3rd point.
3. Relating the story to actual kids
Many stories aimed at kids is often trying to appeal to kids' desire to emulate what they see on screen. Kids want to be superheroes, ninjas and wizards because they look cool on screen.
But that's not possible with Digimon, because the core appeal is not about being Digimon but rather being a partner to a Digimon. I think many adult fans of Digimon all hope that one day we can have our Digimon partner as well.
Hence in order to relate the story to kids and engage with them, the best Digimon series tries to make the kids feel "real". It reduces the barrier of entry of having a Digimon partner to the kids watching the show. No, you don't have to be a super-awesome kids to have a Digimon partner. Any kid can have a Digimon partner no matter who you are, what your "flaws" are and etc.
Hence making the kids in the show feel "alive" with flaws and etc actually does a great job of relating the story to kids. Do you cry often? That's not going to stop you from having a Digimon partner. Are you clumsy? Not going to stop you from having a Digimon partner.
But what the first 3 season went above and beyond is to show kids with family situations of their own. We as kids saw how the kids on screen have actual parents they have to deal with. Going around in a magical land saving the world does not prevent you from having to deal with your parents in different ways. And having parents be such a pivotal part of the show reinforce the idea that the people we are seeing on screen are kids and aren't too different from the actual viewers of the show.

This is just some of my reasons why I think some seasons of Digimon does better than others. It's something that is missing far too often in later seasons of Digimon, and as a result, they simply don't quite capture the attention of people as well as the first 3 seasons of Digimon did.

2021.09.26 01:33 smtelitist How do you go about finding more info about niche kits?

I was going through pictures of some Evangelion kits, and i found this picture of all the evangelion kids in plugsuits. Ive seen all of these before except the kensuke, and ive been trying to track down more information about him all day. The watermark in the bottom was just from the forum it was reposted to, i cant find the original post with it. Part of me thinks that it was customized from another kit to be kensuke but the posing seems too unique. All the figures in the pic (besides hikari) are manufactured by kurushima and sculpted by katayama hiroki. The style of the kensuke seems almost identical to the other ones, so i think it was sculpted by hiroki as well.
It seems impossible that theres literally no other information on this kit online!! Im so desperate to find him cuz hes my favorite eva character.

2021.09.26 01:33 beanstastebad Why won't my phone charge properly?

I've had my iPhone 6s for 3 years and my mom has had it before that. Just yesterday, I've experienced a problem that nobody I've asked has experienced before. It takes hours to charge when dead and charges way slower than usual when it starts up again. Once I use it, it stops charging until it dies again. I tried using different cubes, outlets, and cables. I even got my family to test everything to make sure it was my phone (it was.) I cleaned the charging port with no results. Does anyone know a solution or should I get it checked out?

OnePlus 9pro versions
I’m looking at making indecisive switch from my current iPhone XS to an android. From my research I think the oneplus 9pro is the clear Android king right now. After trying to find one to purchase I was coming across a couple with difference numbers, for example; LE2120 LE2121 LE2123
Some advertised ‘CN with google Ver’
Can someone people explain what these models are and the difference between them? I live in the UK (not sure if this helps but I read something about different carriers) Thanks I’m advance!

2021.09.26 01:33 SkyfromCali Advice: Step Mom Will Not Accept Sister

My younger half sister (14) came out as a lesbian and also decided to change her name.
We have different moms but the same dad. My stepmother, her mother, decided that this was the most horrific thing that could ever happen.
She refuses to call my sister by the name they choose, making my sister feel upset and disrespected. She embarrasses my sister in front of her friends by making a big deal of her sexuality. It really is embarrassing, my Sister is a popular girl and will bring a group home. Then, my stepmom will make awkward comments about them being girls and how she can't be left alone with them, dumb stuff like that.
I'm bisexual, and I decided to tell everyone after seeing how awful my stepmother was taking it, kind of trying to take the attention off My little sister, and make my stepmom direct her negativity toward ME instead.
She quotes certain bible verses at me and my sister, which I find hilarious because I don't believe in God but somehow I've read more of the bible than her and understand it better. She tells us that God does not like gays, so I throw back at her James 4:12 that ONLY God can judge. I told her that she is Sinning herself by judging others when God specifically says not too. She then just throws out, "GOD HATES GAYS." and I reply sarcastically with, "Why, have you spoken to God recently?" Which my sister found funny, but I am just so frustrated with her. I try and lighten the mood, but I worry when I'm not around to deflect the tension.
I truly don't believe calling my sister by the name they choose is a big deal. In fact I think its a SMALL thing.
My stepmom is such a narc and makes it all about herself. "But I am the one who named her! And I decide what she is called in MY house!"
I replied to her, "You are forcing someone to change their identity because it makes you feel better? Do you see how dumb that sounds?"
There is no reasoning with her, and I HATE people who use the bible to shame others.
I hate it when she tells my sister that she isn't going to Heaven. I don't believe any human on earth has a right to tell another person that unless they are a murderer or something.
Most of all, I HATE IT when people use the bible to shame others, that is NOT what the bible is for.
I believe if you can't accept your child for who they are, THAT is what God will judge you for ultimately. If there was a God he wouldn't care about your damn sexuality, he would care that you are putting your own hurt feelings above your daughters happiness. He would care that you are a huge narcissist that can't see past her own nose!

2021.09.26 01:33 hamtaro6 [College Intro to Stats] Is it weird to get a very negative y-intercept if you have a positive correlation coefficient?

From looking, I've determined that a= -13, b = 1.1, r= 0.976, I did some calculations on my own on paper and determined that the linear regression equation is y = 1.1x-13, which is weird because my first data point is (0,0) so if I substitute x = 0, I get y = -13. I get that it's an estimate, but are regression equations occasionally this far off from the real thing? Am I missing something?
