Takeru is the youngest of the team before Hikari join the team .Like a kid in his age he's bright ,cheerful and have a big spirit, along with his innocentness (which is so kawaii !) .Takeru is my fav boy in both season ,in season 01 and because he's the cutest of course ! now let's talk about him in season 01 ,k ?As a little boy of course he's not really strong like the others ,he does need a protection and everyone in the group always ready for it especially his brother but that doesn't mean he's useless as the part of the team ,he always gives them a spirit and cheering them up if they feel down ,that's really an important role in the team because without spirit everyone can't do everything well ,of course for Takeru is more easy to smile or cheering up because he just a little boy which don't really have many problem in his head ,his mind is more simple than everyone in the group , but this childish mind is important for the group ,Mimi has it too but as a girl she can be so snobby like always complain about everything but Takeru isn't he always do everything with a big spirit and optimistic while everyone isn't like while Piximon order them to mop the floor ,the others complained but Takeru isn't he ask Patamon to race which of them is faster for mopping .
But Takeru does have a problem in his life like everyone ,behind his innocentness and his bright personality he has a family problem ; his parents are divorced maybe while he's around 3 ,and he live with his mother since that .It's really a big surprise that he can still be a bright kid ,you know divorced parents is not a good influence for kid personality you can look that at Yamato ; his brother ,maybe just in my opinion in deep his heart Takeru is regret and sad about his family but as a little kid which really have a limit knowledge about everything he doesn't really understand about it and still being the bright child . So yeah Takeru and Yamato is different but maybe and mostly it's because Takeru is younger (like I said before ) and he lives with his mother .They look totally opposites in many angles ,Yamato is cold and strong while Takeru is warm and look weak .Takeru love his brother so much , and for him his brother is his Hero ,he always wants to be as strong as his brother so he can make his brother proud of him but it's pretty hard for him to show it because his brother is really over protective toward him .Though maybe he like his brother to be always in his side ,in deep his heart I think he want his brother not really over protective toward him so he can proof that he can protect his self , but of course Yamato won't let him ,he always wants Takeru in his sight and never let anything danger touched him that's still continue until well forget which episode but I remember that Takeru said to his brother that he can protect his self without his brother protection ,and that continue while he succeed to trick puppetmon and tell it to everyone ,everyone looks very happy about it but Yamato isn't ,he looks disappointed and leave the group that's the other story .
Takeru is not as weak as his looks , yeah he's a crybaby but who can blame him ? he just a little kid ,and kids always being a crybaby .Takeru does can fight (although I think he hate it ) but not in really direct way he try to solve problem with peace if can, like when elecmon challenge Patamon to fight he order them to play ayatori (that pull rope things) it's wise decision ,ne ? And his digimon always be the one who defeat the strongest enemy ,like whenAngemon defeat Devimon or when Magnaangemon defeat Piedmon ,clear ne ?but despite that fact I think Yamato and Taichi's digimon who's the strongest because just their digimon who raise the mega level .And remember Takeru is not a chicken ,he can brave if he want ,like while he protect Hikari while she sick and while he promise to Sora that he will protect Hikari, he do that perfectly .
Crest of Hope is really compatible with his personality , he bring hope to everyone which make him so special along with Hikari ,He find his crest in the pyramid while Etemon want to catch them ,and his crest glowing while he falling down with Hikari and remember his brother's word "Never give up " (if I don't wrong ,gomen ^_^) Talk about his problem again Takeru does have a problem with darkness like while he watch devimon make angemon back to his egg form ,it's make a big shock and injuries in his innocent heart and since that he begin to hate everything that involved with darkness and that problem still continue 3 years later.
No doubt Takeru is a loyal friend ,he really loyal to his partner and never let anything happen to him and he do it too to all his friends ,everyone like him maybe mostly because his bright personality which make them smile and me too ^_^ .And one more reason why I really admire him ,it's because after everything that happen he still has his bright and cheerful personality ,and it's still continue in season 02.
Takeru in season 02 is not the little innocent and crybaby boy anymore .He already grown up ,not just his height but his personality going more mature now. He has lost his childish personality and a part of his optimism ,more careful and serious but still a nice and kind boy like the old time . Takeru is in the same age as his brother in season 01 (11) but different personality ,he makes friends easily because his outgoing personality and maybe his looks ^_^ like while he greet Miyako and Iori cheerfully without no shy (which make them a bit surprised). He's a guy with a good tempered ; calm ,gentle ,and friendly everything seems perfect in him,and like Hikari he knows what the right thing to do, which make me thinks he more compatible to be a leader more better than Daisuke , and everyone do like him ( except Daisuke ^_^)
Takeru already moved to Odaiba now ,he live in same apartment as Miyako and Iori ,also has a same class with Hikari and Daisuke (he also sit with Hikari ^_^) talk about school he's a basket ball player now (that's explain his height ) and being a girls favorite like his brother (you know blonde guy with blue eyes ) .His relationship with his brother already changed a bit too ,in the season 01 Takeru is still a little boy but now they're almost equal ,I mean in teens period .Of course Yamato can't really over protective to him again , and he knows it ,he still keep watching Takeru but not really in protective way and ready to help him if he needs it , Takeru also still admires his brother but not as much as in season 01. He sometimes visit his brother apartment too ,to visit his dad and brother (which very rare for him in season 01 I think ) and they look spent a fun time together . His friendship with Hikari also get a special part in this show ,TOEI also give a special episode for them , it's look clear that Takeru likes Hikari maybe more than a crush ,he never told it but he proof it from the way he protect and treat her , remember his promise to Sora to always protect Hikari ? he still keep it until now and maybe forever (he always blame his self if he can't protect her) .And I think he doesn't realized that he trapped in this triangle thing between him ,Hikari, and Daisuke although maybe he realized a bit but he doesn't never cared about it anyway , he never looked want to have a competition with Daisuke to win Hikari like while they both want to safe Hikari but Daisuke said that he want to draw with a coin ,so just one of them who'll safe Hikari but Takeru realized that it's a coin with same two side ,he didn't get angry but told Daisuke to safe Hikari together (good guy ,ne ?) .
And like Hikari he get a darkness problem too in season 02 ,it's because the bad memory that he get 3 years ago; while Angemon die in his eyes ,it's really a bad memory for him ,which he still remember until now like I said in season 01 he begin to hate everything that involved in darkness since that .In ep 19. he see something that involved with darkness which remembering him about what happen in past 3 years ,then his dark side that we never look is come out ,he throw his hat and start to be a different person ;not a gentle and calm Takeru anymore .He's full of angriness and furiousness ,he hit Ken hardly and begin to be like a cruel fighter but after that finished he get his hat again ,wear it and being the old calm and gentle Takeru .Maybe that hat is the symbol of his kindness .
Takeru and Patamon still a great friends too ,maybe now Patamon look more childish than Takeru but that's not an obstacle for them to have more deeper friendship ,Takeru like he always was be is a loyal friend will do anything for his partner or his friend . Takeru find his digimental in the cage along with Kari's ,and now Patamon can digivolve to his armor evolution Pegasmon ,but we still can look angemon too if there's not a darknest tower around them . So Takeru still a nice and kind guy but of course he's more mature now and we must accept he has a dark side behind his wise smile ,so what ?I believe everyone have their own dark side beside he still people 's favorite after all ^_^ more will come after I watch more season 02 in my country .
