Sora Takenouchi and Yamato Ishida sleeping without each other — approximately a decade before they sleep with each other.

Digimon Adventure 02 Drama CD: Armour Evolution To The Unknown
Sora goes shopping for “true feeling” chocolate for Yamato on Valentine’s Day, a traditional gift Japanese girls give to their boyfriends to express their love for them.
The Chosen girls and their digimon gossip about Sora and Yamato’s relationship as they’re shopping for chocolate.
Mimi: “I actually wasn’t too surprised to hear about [Sora and Yamato dating]. I think they’re a cute couple!”
Mimi thinks that if Sora and Yamato ever got into an argument, it would be Yamato who gives in, because Sora is more stubborn than he is.
Yamato gave his father Sora’s phone number. Hiroaki calls Sora and thanks her for “looking after Yamato all the time”. Sora and Yamato have been dating for one and a half months and it seems that they spend all their time together (whilst off-screen in 02). <3
Sora speaks in very sweet and polite Japanese to Yamato’s father — obviously in an attempt to impress him.
When coming up with a plan to get inside the Ginza department store where the girls (including Sora) are being held hostage by an evil digimon, Yamato volunteers to be the ramen delivery man, so that he can go in and save his girlfriend.
Yamato willingly makes a spectacle of himself in public by tap dancing, in hopes of distracting the evil digimon, so that his girlfriend can be saved.
Yamato: “Sora, I love you!” And instead of using the more common “daisuki” to express his love, he uses “ai shiteru” — which is a seldom used expression that can be translated to I love you forever and ever until the end of my days and even then my soul will continue loving you for all eternity. Japanese husbands can go their entire married lives without ever saying “ai shiteru” to their wives — and Yamato said it after one and a half months of dating. <3
Piyomon is incredibly supportive of Sora’s relationship with Yamato. From her cute remark alerting the other girls to the fact that Sora was going to purchase chocolate for Yamato, to being upset about Sora offering the “true feeling” chocolate meant for Yamato to the evil digimon (in exchange for their freedom), to reassuring Sora that there must be a “deeper reason” for Yamato tap dancing when Sora is freaking out about why he’s doing that when he should be saving her life. Piyomon is so cute.
After a misunderstanding where Sora thinks Yamato has been “a bit cold lately”, Yamato attempts to show Sora the “proof of his love” by making Gabumon armour evolve.
Piyomon thinks she’s falling in love with Gabumon, which implies she spends a lot of time with him now, which again means Sora and Yamato spend a lot of time together. :)
Just a summary of how awesome this audio drama CD is — it’s the most romance depicted in Digimon Adventure and 02.

nasha-shama said: hi, i must say i love your tumblr. i just finish watching digimon adventure for the 5th time in my life, my first time was when i was 6-7 years old (on 2000) and matt was my first love and sora my favorite character, and role model. and by my 21's i still feel excited haha, i don't want to watch 02 because i don't like the original kids weren't the protagonist so reading this makes me feel happy, i was reading till 3am. So thank you :D pd. i'm guatemalan sorry my english

Thank you for the nice message! And you’re welcome — I finally made this Sorato fansite (still in progress, of course) after over a decade of just being a fan, for fellow Sorato fans like you. I’m really glad you enjoyed reading through this fansite — as that was my aim. Celebrating Sorato is awesome. :)

I understand where you’re coming from regarding Digimon Adventure 02 — I wish the original cast were the main protagonists, too. But, hey, the second season did give us more Sorato. And that will always be something awesome about the series. ^_^

TEEN-AGE WOLVES’ frontman Yamato Ishida doesn’t dick around

By NATSUKO TAKAISHI

That photo of Yamato Ishida’s genitals seen by millions of people around the globe? He wants you to know that it isn’t his.

It appears that the lead singer of the TEEN-AGE WOLVES has faced his first real scandal.

F.U. Stars magazine published a photo of what was claimed to be the famous 25-year-old’s erect penis, where his right hand (allegedly) can be seen gripped around its base. The tabloid, with some decorum, censored his sexual organ.

A woman, identified only as J, told the magazine that Ishida had flirted with her during an autograph signing event last weekend, where he asked her back to his hotel room later that evening.

J admits that though she had initially been “excited and giddy” to meet up with the star for what she said was heavily implied to be sex, she did not, in fact, end up sleeping with him — due to “guilt that he had a wife”.

But she claims that he did ask for her phone number, sending her the now-infamous photo of his alleged phallus a few days later.

"I was totally disgusted by the fact that he would send me a selfie of his cock. Like, how high school is that?" J said.

fuckyeahsorato:

My first attempt at a gifset! Yamato, Sora and their children in the final moments of Digimon Adventure 02.

The epilogue will always be a good narrative choice from my perspective. From a writer’s point of view, I respect the set-up of Takeru being the narrator of their entire adventure (and his part in foreshadowing Sorato). From a viewer’s point of view, I loved seeing all the kids grown up and married with their own kids. Look at the growth of every single one of the Chosen Children. Look at how happy they all are. Oh my, feels. ;’)

Sora Takenouchi & Yamato Ishida: Character Theme Songs

Sora: *Bursts into tears.*

Taichi: Hey, don’t cry! *Bewildered.* H-Hey, Yamato … What should I do?

Yamato: If she wants to cry, then let her.

(Source: Digimon Adventure - Episode 26 [Aired: 5 September 1999])

This was a defining Sorato moment in the series that summed up the entire Sorato friendship shown throughout the first season — that Sora and Yamato operated on the same emotional wavelength and were shown to understand each other. This is important because Sora and Yamato were also shown to be the two characters who were often misunderstood by the others — and the fact that the two then understood each other showed a strong emotional connection between them, which serves as the entire basis for the Sorato relationship.

Sora has four character songs with lyrics, and three of those songs support and validate Sorato fans’ interpretation of episode 26 — that Yamato was the only one who understood Sora on an emotional level. And that it was significant that he had.

Sora: I feel like crying more than anyone knows 
Sora: Too clumsy to convey my feelings 
Sora: I try to pretend to be strong

Sora: But if I clear my heart 
Sora: Someday I’ll surely find a love I want to fill it with 

(Source: Sora Takenouchi’s 01 Character Song - Ashita wa Motto/Tomorrow I’ll Be … [Released: 3 November 1999])

This song was released just two months after episode 26 aired, and in it Sora says she pretends to be strong by hiding her feelings — despite the fact that, really, she often feels like crying “more than anyone knows”. The song thus confirms that Yamato is shown to see through Sora’s mask and understands her in episode 26. In the song, Sora also brings up the possibility of a future romantic love for her — which I think is a clear implication of the future Sorato marriage. And isn’t it fitting that the boy who understood her became her future love?

Sora Takenouchi & Mimi Tachikawa / Takeru Takaishi & Hikari Yagami

these are cute af but why is yamato the only one wearing his Adventure getup. did his dad forget to pack him a change of clothes for the sleepover. is it a deliberate fashion choice. is he going for some weird garage dweller aesthetic. why

If Yamato wore a summer outfit and showed more skin than just his sexy arms, the ovaries of a million fangirls would simultaneously explode — killing half of Digimon Adventure's viewing demographic.

Sora also would have jumped on him in a heartbeat before the originally planned epilogue, ruining the surprise revelation.

Toei Animation knew this and were wise not to budget new clothes for him.
