While BlitzGreymon’s appearance was exciting, Digimon Adventure Episode 36 makes no secret that the true heroes are Koshiro and AtlurKabuterimon.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for episodes 36 of Digimon Adventure: (2020), “Operation Satellite Sniper,” now airing on Crunchyroll.
When BlitzGreymon was teased in Episode 35, fans quickly began to theorize that the new form would steal the other characters’ attention once again, and while that is impossible to say. do not occur, Digimon Adventure pleasantly surprises viewers by giving most of the episode’s screen time and narrative weight to someone other than Taichi –Koshiro.
The International Space Station is heading on a collision course with Tokyo. Koshiro, the character who has been in communication with the real world the most, has found a way to get rid of the corrupted data, and Taichi’s group arrives just in time to help. The plan is simple and straightforward, with Koshiro already having located a pillar of light leading to the surface grid that will allow them to alter the collision course of the ISS in a similar way to how they did with the missile in Episode 3. ” World.” There is only one problem: there is a time limit.

With just 20 minutes to spare, the group all Digivolve into their flying forms and begin to climb the pillar of light until they encounter a group of BladeKuwagamon, which Tailmon notes have an evolution that adapts to the unique environment full of Ray. But as this group of BladeKuwagamon and MetallifeKuwagamon begin to attack and defend their territory, the group finds itself in a particularly shonen situation – the old “I’ll take care of things here, you follow” method of narrowing down the cast. .
It is here that both Koshiro begin to take their place as the main character despite BlitzGreymon’s sudden appearance. With such limited time and resources, the rest of DigiDestined begins to put the burden on Koshiro as he leads the group to the top. Koshiro, who before this point had seen himself primarily as a supporting character, suddenly finds himself the one being supported, and it is his emotional arc to come to terms with that fact that is the common thread. of the episode.
Soon the cast is in trouble, so MetalGreymon Digivolves into BlitzGreymon. Rather than simply being an alternate Mega-level form for Agumon as previously assumed, BlitzGreymon revealed to be a special subspecies of WarGreymon specifically adapted for this environment, as Tailmon’s words earlier foreshadowed. This not only shocks the cast, but leads to the episode’s emotional turning point. Koshiro, no doubt feeling a bit inadequate after BlitzGreymon’s reveal, tells Taichi to continue, thinking that he and AtlurKabuterimon will be left behind, only for Taichi to reply that only Koshiro can make the shot.
Although surprised, Koshiro doesn’t exactly have time to argue and takes the most important part of the operation, the Satellite Sniper, himself. It’s still a race against time, but no longer hampered by aggressive Digimon, Koshiro has time to think. He realizes that even though he had seen himself as a minor character, as someone who could help others but did not need them, he was wrong. And you are not alone.
Thus, when he and AtlurKabuterimon reach the top, HerculesKabuterimon’s outline emerges from his Horn Buster attack, not quite the Digivolution that was predicted, but pretty epic nonetheless. The shot is fired in a split second and the ISS falls more or less harmlessly into the sea, saving Tokyo and the day. In the end, Koshiro learned a great lesson about trust, friendship, and trust in others without necessarily underestimating himself. This episode was its time to shine.
