Synopsis: Tai is now a university student, living alone, studying hard and working every day — but his future is still undecided. Meanwhile, Matt and the others continue to investigate Digimon incidents and help people with partner Digimon. An unprecedented phenomenon occurs, and the DigiDestined discover that when you grow up, your relationship with your partner Digimon will come closer to an end. As a countdown timer activates on the Digivice, they realize that the more they fight with their Partner Digimon, the faster their bond breaks.
Will you fight for others and lose your partner? The time to choose is approaching fast. There is a short time before “chosen children” will become adults. This is the last adventure of Tai and Agumon.
