We're back to dive further into Tamers! In these episodes, we start to learn about Calumon and Rika, meet Impmon, round out champion digivolutions, and spend an episode trying to de-digivolve. We discuss the Calumon-Impmon dichotomy, digivolution mechanics, learning culture, and several gender issues.
