Digimon Adventure tri.
Daigo was one of the original DigiDestined and was partnered with Bearmon. During a climatic, losing battle against the Dark Masters, Daigo began to give up despite Maki Himekawa urging him to continue. However, just as all seemed lost, the Homeostasis possessed Maki and used her Digivice to make the children's partners digivolve. Light surrounded all of the Digimon except for Maki's partner Megadramon, and Maki begged Homeostasis to save her partner, but there was no time as the Dark Masters attacked. He then was swept up with his partner and watched as his Digimon and three others became the Harmonious Ones, while Megadramon sacrificed itself to channel an immense energy attack against the Dark Masters.
Years later, Daigo and Maki attended the same college. Maki told Daigo about her plan to reboot the Digital World in order to bring Tapirmon back. Worried about her obsession, Daigo tried to dissuade her from it and asked to instead be her "new partner". Although Maki laughed at his awkward manner, she agreed to date him.
However, at some point Daigo and Maki broke up. Incorporated Administrative Agency, though Maki is ranked higher.Both also became coworkers at the
In 2005, Daigo goes undercover as a calligraphy teacher at the Tsukishima General High School's 11th grade, monitoring the second group of DigiDestined. Two of them, Taichi "Tai" Kamiya and Sora Takenouchi, attend his class. One day, in the week before June 19, he approaches Tai in the hallway, calling him out for being the only one of his students who has not delivered his career planning form, and orders the boy to meet him in his office at lunch. There, Daigo asks Tai about what he is interested in, and Tai mentions his friends "living far away", the Digimon, which Daigo misinterprets as them being overseas. In response, he advises Tai to study languages, and encourages him to chase his dreams. At sunset, he talks to Maki about witnesses of the infected Digimon. On June 19, after Kuwagamon attacks Tokyo, Daigo shows up and drives Tai to Haneda Airport in order to combat the monster. He is unable to be found the next day, but when Tai and Yamato "Matt" Ishida stop by his office that evening, he is present and officially introduces himself as a member of the Incorporated Administrative Agency. He informs the DigiDestined about what he knows about infected Digimon and the increasing distortions between the Real and Digital Worlds. Afterwards, he reports to Maki about the conversation. Daigo is later present on the sidelines of the DigiDestined's battle against Alphamon, commenting sourly when it becomes apparent that Alphamon managed a successful retreat.
Upon falling underground in the Digital World, a heavily wounded Daigo and Tai discover an underground laboratory, with Davis Motomiya, Yolei Inoue, Cody Hida, Ken Ichijouji, and Gennai inside pods that also provide life support. Daigo explains that the kids had gone missing and that he was forced to keep it quiet. The Mysterious Man arrives and states that they found out about King Drasil's plan, and so had to be dealt with. He shuts the life support, laughs, and announces that it is possible to save the trapped DigiDestined, but only by returning to the Real World, and that there is only a single pod remaining. If they do leave, however, the lab will self-destruct. Already bleeding to death, Daigo tricks Tai into entering the final pod and initiates the transfer sequence, giving Tai some final advice about striving toward the future. After the transfer finishes, Daigo appears to die while the lab explodes.
