We’re back to Tamers after a long diversion into Tri country!

We jump into the beginning of the Devas arc as Takato learns to believe in the heart of the blue cards, Rika sits through a boring play, and the school goes on a camping trip to receive a sermon from a Southern televangelist Deva-possessed owl.

We discuss dub overdramatization, the series’ relationship with adults, digivolution growing pains and growing up, and the self-fulfilling prophecy of declaring Digimon dangerous because they fight back after being declared dangerous.
