Episode 41: He's Back! A Myotismon's Story

Digimon Adventure 02 Episodes 48 - 49. The final big bad has taken center stage, and he's gonna tell us FAR more about his evil plan than we'd ever care to know. What we DO care about though, is the original "everyone is here!" moment, more Hiroki x Oikawa fuel, and fervent soapboxing for Yolei, Daisuke, and even Davis! Though these episodes of Digimon may be hit-or-miss, this episode of the NovaCast is all hits, baby! So let's all go to the Digital World!
