Dearest Followers, please excuse my need to point out to everyone how many followers I have and how incredibly immature I am.
No, but seriously, thank you guys so much, I don’t even know why you follow me, I’m sure you have different reasons, but whatever the reason, thank you so much! You guys are the best. P.S. DOESN’T THAT DIGIVICE ICON LOOK AWESOME?!?!
So this is what happened when I was doing research for my philosophy paper…all of these topics are very scholarly :)
It’s amazing how much more sense it makes after you’ve seen Our War Game. At first, you’re like “How does Kari know all of this about the Digital World, and how on Earth does she know Koromon?”
And then you see the movie, and it just turns out that she has a much better memory than Tai :)

Courage: “I’m only doing this to honor all the brave digimon that have helped us. They trusted us and believed in our commitment. We can’t let them down.” - Tai
Friendship: “Thank you, Tai, for believing in me. I’m just sorry I was so late. Tai, you have to know how much our friendship has always meant to me, and I swear nothing will ever come between us again.” - Matt
Love: ”I believe in you, and I am not going to get in your way.” - Sora
Knowledge: “What could possibly be wrong with gaining knowledge and information?” - Izzy
Reliability: ”At my old school, they voted me most likely to chicken out. Guess we showed them.” - Joe
Sincerity: ”Oh, it’s the end! It’s over! Myotismon will rule the world! This is terrible! Now my family’s going to suffer and so are my friends. There’s gotta be something I can do!” - Mimi
Hope: “Okay Angemon. I know this maybe sounds crazy but I need you to hit Matt and Tai with your arrow.” - TK
Light: “My light will lead us towards the others.” - Kari
I don’t know if it’s the actual intersection, I just think I found one that fits. Unlike Digimon Adventure, we don’t know how accurate the layout of Takuya’s house and area is because they aren’t as well known landmarks. Jiyugaoka Station however is pretty accurate, according to Google Street View, so I was really hoping there would be a similar intersection.
These two pictures just show the hedges on one side of the road and the incline of the road. In the Street View picture, we are looking up the street from the intersection whereas in the screenshot, we are looking towards the intersection.
Here is the intersection itself. The sun setting in the screenshot shows that direction is west, which is what the Street View picture shows in the bottom corner (the corner is oriented north).
Here’s the road Takuya runs down to get to the station. Notice the buildings on the right and the greenery on the left.
Here’s the intersection Takuya turns onto to get to the station. Even the orange covers are the same!
And finally, here’s the actual Jiyugaoka Station, with the ticket stations and the train platform above.
All in all, everything looks pretty accurate in the city, with some obvious animation generalizing, and I think I was just lucky in finding a residential area that looks very similar to Takuya’s that happens to be the right distance from the train station. :)
…trying to locate where Takuya would live in relation to Jiyugaoka Station, the station from which he takes the train to Shibuya Station. I think I actually found the intersection where Takuya almost gets run over by the truck, or an intersection very much resembling it. And it’s oriented the right way and everything, since the sun was setting down a certain street in the show, and that direction is West on Google Maps. I even used Street View to make sure, and there’s the road on a hill on which Takuya lives. And this intersection is 11 minutes walking distance from Jiyugaoka Station. Since Takuya had a little less than 5 minutes to get there, and he was running the whole time, this is a totally plausible distance.
Yay research for fanfiction!!
Now that I (think I) know where Takuya lives, I can start looking into schools in the area and such. :)
I love that the Digimon series uses the actual layout of Japan for its scenes ^_^

“But what really kills me is what she said when they brought her home from the hospital, the first words that came out of her mouth. ’Tai, I’m sorry I can’t kick the ball very good, you’ll probably never want to play with me again.’” -Tai Kamiya, Digimon
Okay, not in context it’s like a whatever quote. But in context it broke me up. OMG I’m a mess.
Definitely one of my favorite episodes.
