Mimi Tachikawa is a character in the anime and manga series Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02. Mimi has been described as a "girly girl" - spoiled, ditzy, vain, and prissy girl who complains a lot, but also is sensitive, artsy, sweet and caring. She often talks of shopping and fashion. Mimi is also known to be infantile, and innocent. She is partnered to Palmon and is the bearer of the Crest of Sincerity (Purity in Japan). She was voiced by Ai Maeda in Japan, Philece Sampler in English localizations and Érika Menezes in Brazil.
In the second season, Mimi plays a much smaller role. Between the two seasons, her family relocated from Japan to New York in the United States. For this reason, she is absent for much of the season and only makes a few appearances throughout. However, she has changed dramatically since the first season. She has given up her pink cowgirl outfit for more modern clothes - a red white and blue shirt with a star, which shows her stomach, and a white skirt with white boots and red straps - and cut her hair. In addition, her hair has been dyed a bubblegum pink colour. She appears to act less shallow, though still stays true to the character which she became in the first season.
Digimon Adventure 02
During Digimon Adventure 02, a portal to the Digital World opens in the United States, allowing Mimi to access the Digital World. How she can enter is never revealed (Though it is later revealed by Izzy that, although the Original Digidestined can't open the DigiPorts, once they are open, all you need is a Digivice to enter the DigiWorld); the original Digivice cannot open a gate, sans Tai's mysterious entry into the Digital World in the first episode. In addition to the clothing changes, she also changes her hair color as well. Also, although stated only in the Japanese version, Mimi returns to Japan to attend her cousin's wedding. She plays an important role in the episode that Arukenimon makes her first appearance. She is playing with a bunch of YukimiBotamon/SnowBotamon, while Palmon is out collecting more food. While she is out, Palmon notices Arukenimon converting a control spire into a Golemon. Arukenimon orders the Digimon to destroy the dam. Palmon runs back to warn Mimi, who messages the others to come help. During the battle, after all five of the DigiDestined's Digimon are exhausted and defeated, Mimi messages Ken to come help despite the protests from Cody and Yolei.
She helped Davis gather the Digidestined from America to send all the Digimon back.
It appears, later after her first appearence in Digimon Adventure 02, she changed her hair colour back to brunette.
