After his defeat at the hands of Omnimon, Diaboromon survived.  He sent copies of his baby form Keramon to the real world so he can continue his rampage of destruction.  When he appears in the real world and digivolves to a more powerful form, the Digidestined must work together to put an end to him once and for all.

Review: After the fiasco that was Digimon: The Movie, the Digimon people have finally redeemed themselves... barely.  It's wasn't easy in that they kept slipping back to their normal routine of silliness, but in the end, they gave the treatment of the sequel to the Diaboromon angle of Digimon: The Movie the respect it deserves.  The animation was still the crummy level of Digimon: The Movie and they had to replace some of the voice actors (I suppose they didn't really have much of a choice) but it still worked out.  The only thing I regreat is that it was only 45 minutes long.  They had to view it twice to fit into their time slot.  They should've done the Tamer movies and then released the all three of them as a sequel.  What's that, you're wondering when did they show it?  Jetix (ABC-Family) aired it one weekend.

Action Level: 4/5
Some of it was rehashed from Digimon: The Movie but it was hardly noticeable.  When Angemon and Angewomon showed up to fight Diaboromon along side Omnimon, that was sweet.

Romance Level: 2/5
If you can remember far back, the series paired up Matt and Sora (a wrong pairing in my opinion).  But in this, it doesn't look like they ended up together.  In fact, when Diaboromon is on his rampage, Sora hangs around Tai more than Matt.  I don't know, maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Comedy Level: 3/5
They definitely cut it down since Digimon: The Movie.  There were little jokes here and there, but they were place appropriately and quickly dismissed.

Adult Level: 0/5

Drama Level: 4/5
More dramatic, then the previous movie which is a plus.

Overall Level: 4/5
If it's possible for a sequel to be better than the original, this is it.  Still, did they have to use the Season 4 theme?  I mean even if they put in the season 2 opening theme, I wouldn't mind.
