Those of you who have followed me long enough, you know I am no friend to "Digimon Adventure 02."  As a youth I watched in horror as its plot imploded, polluting the entire "Adventure" series as it went; now I can't even watch the first season without knowing what a miserable, disconnected ending the story has.  Even though the TV show recovered by creating new seasons with new kids and plots, it was a traumatizing ordeal, and even now it still haunts me.

When I heard the news of a new "Adventure" series on Friday morning, my immediate reaction was terror-- after all, what could they hope to achieve dredging that nightmare back up?-- but as I took it in, I started to wonder if there was more to it than a sequel.  Perhaps it's going to be a retcon of the unpopular 02, or even a reboot.  We still have very little information, and the fans have been left to dream things up.

My hopeful side is fighting to overtake my common sense: maybe they're going to write 02 clean out of existence and do something better; maybe there'll be a believable, genuine ending; maybe Tai and Sora will end up together as I always rooted for.

However, there's just as much chance that this will simply go with what has already been put down (especially if they bring the 01/02 director, Mr. Kakudou, back) and this will be another heartbreak in the making.

The truth is, right now, we don't know.  We have to wait.

02-R fans, don't worry.  Regardless of what this new season turns out to be, I will finish my story.  I've come too far to abandon it now.

So, in closing, more time must pass, more light must be shed... I look towards this new season with hope and despair, excitement and dread.
