    Maybe the X-Antibody was really just the friends we made along the way? Seriously, the fact that Examon just gets it by wanting it is funny but it's hype so I'm cool with it. Edit: the new translation explains it well, so Examon was being tortured with the X-Program right at the start of the chapter.

    Hououmon X getting such a grand entrance is actually pretty awesome, and with a great design too. Hououmon is sorta the DarkKnightmon on the RK side. I wonder if there's a deeper meaning in these two teaming up...

    I really thought this chapter was going to cover OmegaShoutmon and RizeGreymon, maybe show their Ultimate stages as OmegaShoutmon X and ShineGreymon X (neither of which is happening since we know the former is a Perfect and the latter doesn't exist in the X3), but now I'm hoping we'll see them next chapter as Rapidmon X and Justimon X. Kinda long wait for that one, at least comparatively to the past few days, but I can wait. Better not to drop everything in like a two day span lol.

    I am not surprise to see Hououmon X. I figure that it is the evolution of Garudamon X. Better late then never. Maybe one day, the child and adult forms will come, but it is not right now. I am wondering if Hououmon X is not the final form too and it Digivolves into either Valdurmon or Zhuqiaomon

    Sure, it's not Omegamon or Alphamon, but it's pretty obvious Hououmon knows them. Seeing a new Digimon is much more exciting than those guys yet again, anyway.

    Well, sort of. Death and rebirth is more of a phoenix (Birdramon) thing, while Hououmon is based more on the fenghuang/houou. The fenghuang is immortal, though.

    Sure, the whole line tends to incorporate both western and eastern phoenix iconography, I should have been more specific. And likewise Alphamon and Omegamon, beginning and end, inform that aspect of the plot as well, I just think Phoenixmon/Hououmon is less random than it seems on first glance.

    That sounds a bit like a reach. It's more like they're just trying to fit in the V-Pets' rosters into the storyline in places that at least seem somewhat appropriate. Such as DarkKnightmon X competing against Barbamon X, Lucemon X randomly summoning Cherubimon Vice X and Ophanimon FM X, or how two of the X3's new Perfects (OmegaShoutmon and RiseGreymon) are suddenly leading the reinforcements.

    Why pick Hououmon for the roster in the first place? I guess they just wanted to pick "good" or holy Digimon, and there's already a Garudamon X. Notice how Pteranomon, Garudamon, and Hououmon occupy the same positions as Tailmon, Angewomon, and Ophanimon on the different versions' rosters.

    Maybe Lucemon X wasn't actually "summoning" them, it's like more of... He called two from "fodder" demon army to come? Eh

    I suspect Houhoumon X's role might be the one that will purify Cherubimon and Ofanimon by giving her Holy rings to return their senses back to awake?

    I think RiseGreymon and OmegaShoutmon were selected to have X forms because they gave X forms to each main digimon partners in each seasons like that Trio tamer partners. But still I agree. Why Perfects to lead the army? Maybe due to X-Program, so this world barely have few Ultimates excluding special groups?

    I really like Phoenixmon-Xs design! So elegant and feminine rather than the more masculine Garudamon and regular Phoenixmon designs.

    They probably wanted to complete the 01 Megas, (if you count Plesiomon X as Gomamons alternate mega).

    Though I like his armor, my problem with ExamonX is the same as that of GankoomonX. It takes away the most Iconic parts of the original design.

    Examon's most defining features were his gigantic wings, and monstrous scale along with his lance. He was a great contrast to the other RKs and an imposing design to begin with.

    By changing the proportions, he looks less monstrous, more knightlike. He is more in line with Slayerdramon, but less unique now. Plus the lance being replaced by Darth Maul's light saber looks less impressive. That halo on top looks tacky too. Not a big fan, the armor is nicely done though.

    Houhoumon X got ten Holy rings. Wow I sorta missed the quad wings. It could be upgraded instead of thigh wings. But she is very beautiful so I accept!
    It actually got 12, you missed the ones at the claws. With that many, it makes sense for it to be the one to purify Ophanimon and Cherubimon.

    I was thinking something similar about Examon X. Even if it still is large, it no longer gives off the same massive vibe it had before. I would have liked it better if the artwork framed it in a way that made it look larger.
