Digimon Adventure-Tri: Coexistence
By Kimberly Michelle Mullins, KIDS FIRST! Adult Juror
With the well-known Japanese anime style, Digimon-tri has sharp-edge graphics and
action sequences that draw the viewers in. We see them dealing with educational and
social struggles similar to those that many have to deal with, but with friends helping out.
This is a continuation of the popular Digimon-tri series. The storyline, generally about
dark forces taking over, flows well. There are no lagging sequences that would bore the
viewer. One becomes empathetic with the protagonist Kari and even the evil force
overtaking Meicoomon. The vocabulary and concepts are appropriate for its intended age
group and could further enhance vocabulary and concepts that the viewer may not
It portrays pro-social models such as when Kari feels that she might be
responsible for a specific situation and one of the others reassures her that this definitely
isn’t the case. This entire series is very good at displaying consequences of both negative
and positive behaviors. There are also good models of problem-solving such as when a
Digimon character decides on an action and another vehemently opposes it. The rest of
the group has to come to a general consensus to make a final determination.
The underlying message is about seeking out others when you are experiencing tough
times. Life has complicated challenges, but you can overcome them. You should be
aware that there are two things that make this more appropriate for older viewers.

First, a character pulls out a gun, but there is no blast. And second, we see a powerful being
shaped like a naked woman, although there are no graphic features. For that reason, I
recommend it for ages 10 to 18, as well as young adults and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I
would raise the highest age to 25 if I could because it is so thought-provoking and
intelligent. The DVD allows you to select specific scenes and has a bonus feature
interview. Reviewed by Kimberly M., KIDS FIRST! Adult Reviewer
