Digimon Adventure tri.

Maki was one of the original DigiDestined and was partnered with Tapirmon. During a climatic, losing battle against the Dark Masters, Maki went to comfort Megadramon, then tried to rally Daigo Nishijima, who was ready to give up. However, just as all seemed lost, she was possessed by Homeostasis, who initiated a ritual to revive the children's Partners and transform four of them into the Harmonious Ones. After regaining control of her body, she pleaded for Megadramon to be saved too, while Daigo urged her to take cover. She watched in shock as Megadramon sacrificed himself as a vessel for the immense energy attack launched by the Harmonious Ones. Heartbroken, Maki demanded to know why Megadramon was sacrificed, and soon became obsessed with finding a way to see her Partner again.

Years later, Maki and Daigo attended the same college. Maki learned the Digital World could be rebooted and informed Daigo that she intended to do so after she graduates. Worried, Daigo tried to dissuade her and asked to instead be her "new partner". Although Maki was tickled at his awkwardness, she agreed to date him. Loss

After the Digital World is rebooted, Tapirmon is reborn but doesn't remember Maki. One night, he is picking flowers in a field and is sighted by Maki. Tapirmon doesn't believe her when she tells him he is her Partner and backs off, but this only makes Maki insane and she orders him to remember her. Maki later returns to the Digital World with a bazooka and becomes stranded in the Dark Ocean after defending herself with the bazooka against the Scubamon. When last seen, Maki was being pulled further into the Dark Ocean by the waves, hopelessly crying out for Tapirmon in the process. Loss Coexistence
