Tamers Ep08 Recap

Episode Recap for A Question of Trust

When pranks are pulled in the park, Takato believes the prankster to be Guilmon, and begins to doubt his Digimon.


While Takato brainstorms Guilmon's Champion form, Impmon is doing pranks in the middle of the night. In school, Ms. Asaji says that there have been pranks going on at night, and that if anyone knows about it, they must inform the school. Takato beings to think that it may be Guilmon. At night, Impmon finds Guilmon and tells him to help him do pranks, saying it's fun, Guilmon accepts. Upon the first prank, Guilmon decides to leave. Takato goes to talk to Guilmon and sees him walking on the streets, making Takato believe that Guilmon is indeed the prankster, Guilmon tries to explain that he's not the prankster, but Takato doesn't believe him, overwhelmed with the possibility of losing Guilmon due to the pranks. A Digital Field comes and out of it comes Devidramon. Rika wants Renamon to fight, but she refuses stating that this is Guilmon's fight, not hers. Guilmon tries to fight him, but the difference of strength is too big. Terriermon finds Impmon doing a prank and scares him off. Terriermon explains to Takato that Impmon was doing the pranks and that Guilmon had nothing to do with it. Takato, having regained his trust in Guilmon and feeling guilty for accusing him, tries to help him with multiple cards, to no avail, but Takato's feelings help Guilmon digivolve to Growlmon, who is powerful enough to kill Devidramon with one attack.

Other notes

Dubbing changes

  • The dub removes a scene where a man attempts to light a cigarette in Shinjuku Park. The dub instead simply airbrushed out the cigarette and lighter.
  • Takato's imagination of the police using their pistols against Guilmon was shortened to remove a close-up shot of a pistol.
