[translation notes] episode 02
You’re My Friend! Terriermon Appears!
Although Digimon are established in this series to be genderless and to know that they are genderless (according to Renamon), we will be using pronouns, based on voices, that make them gender specific. The reason for this is simply because using ‘it’ all of the time makes the humans’ (and sometimes Digimon’s) relationship with [other] Digimon seem distant.* That’s also the reason why Ruki will be referring to all Digimon as ‘it’ until episode 10.
*It also doesn’t explain Jijimon and Babamon.
