10. From Ryou to Cyberdramon
(Beeping) Um, um, um, well...
Cyberdramon. Itís me, Akiyama Ryou.
Itís been a while. I received an e-mail from Jen, so I recently traveled here from northern
Kyushu. Iím still competing in card tournaments. Why you ask? I donít even understand it myself.
At this point all of my opponents seem to be younger than me, but over time the players are
becoming stronger. It may be that sooner or later itíll feel like Iím playing a completely
Even when Iím an adult, whatever unknown form I may take, Iíll sense that Iím fully alive
through competing. Recently Iíve thought that you were probably the one who knew that side of me
Do you remember the first time you appeared before me? Two years ago on the evening of the
finals, I finally beat that previously unknown but exhaustively strong girl. (Haha) It was
returning to the hotel in Ueno As I walked down the rapidly darkening main street, a digital
field appeared. However, at the time I couldnít identify the fog like substance. Without
completely taking form, you called me from this world to join you. I thought that I must be a
dreaming when a Digimon appeared before me and spoke.
You were irritated with your inability to evolve, so you needed a powerful Tamer to help you
become stronger. I immediately decided to go to the Digital World with you. (Ha) I never even
considered how my disappearance would worry my dad.
You didnít talk much, but I felt that our Tamer and Digimon relationship went deeper than just
Digimon master and fierce Digimon.
Cyberdramon, how are you? Iíve been worried about you. You were much stronger than me, yet you
kept seeking an enemy with frightful powers. It was your fate to battle that enemy.
Along with me, you evolved to your ultimate form, Justimon, but the strength you possessed
existed not just to defeat your fated enemy. I know that best of anyone. However, you yourself are the enemy that you have been seeking. You are the enemy you must
fight to avoid losing your sense of self, to the extent that you sought strength only to defeat
him. Did you even seek greater strength than the Four Heavenly Beasts? Didnít that strength
morph into a wicked heart rather than true power? I was driven to anxiety because wasnít
Cyberdramonís ultimate enemy the one closer to you than any other? Yes...the one within
I want you to listen if youíre still seeking for that strong opponent. Cyberdramon, if you
truly want to become strong, to achieve your ultimate form, you must defeat what lurks within
you. Once you have you will understand the true meaning of evolving to the ultimate stage.
Even without a Tamer.
Ahh, I wanted to tell you this directly, in my own words...
Cyberdramon, please be alive...!
11. Ruki and Ryou
(Always, Always Weíll Be Together...humming along with the music)
Ruki: Ahh...what? Itís you? Ryou? What are you doing here?
Ryou: Thereís a Digimon card exhibition. Youíre not participating though, right?
Ruki: Iíve...grown beyond that.
Ryou: Ahhaha! Well, youíre a girl, so thereís no help for it.
Ruki: Thatís got nothing to do with it!
Ryou: Eh, sorry, sorry. In the first place, youíre strong regardless of whether youíre male or
Ruki: So you just casually came all the way here to prattle on about the old days?
Ryou: Youíre just the same as always. Itís the first time weíve met in a while, so it wouldnít
kill you to be a little friendlier, would it?
Ruki: *Youíre* the one whoís the same as always. (Hmph)
Ryo: I got an e-mail from Jen on my cell.
Ryou: I just came from recording a voice message at Jenís place. But I did hear that you were
opposed to sending Renamon a message.
Ruki: If you want to send one, do it! Itís none of my business!
Ruki: Generally speaking, Iím totally unconvinced that itís worth it! I had to separate from
Renamon, and Iíll never get to see her again!
Ryou: Itís not true that you can never see her again.
Ruki: Well, when? Tomorrow? In a week? The day after tomorrow? In ten years? WHEN?!?
Ryou: Jen said that as long as we all keep studying Digimon and the Digital World...
Ruki: Thatís not good enough!
Ryou: Ah... (swallows words)
(Ruki runs away)
Ryou: Ruki, wait...Ruki...
