Finally I waited for that.

lol Amphimon's eyes are there! Those glowing Jellymon eyes in "Lilimon-like" style!

Oh Dilbitmon's tail is now bunny's. I will miss Lamortmon's Pomeranian/Shiba tail.

Man, getting a much better look at Dilbitmon really highlights just how out of place Lamortmon feels aesthetically to me. It's a cool design though so I'll probably get over it once I see it animated.

Amphimon's tiny torso does bother me though. :eek:

WereGarurumon might look out of place with Gabumon's normal line. But since it's probably a robot body, maybe that's why it's like that. But these will look interesting next to Siriusmon.

I figured that the two faded white-ish spots under the shine from the helmet were her eyes because they were more or less the correct shape.

To be fair SymbareAngoramon has a dog tail as well, it wasn’t just Lamortmon.

SymbareAngoramon's tail isn't long tail so therefore it's bunny tail to me.

I wonder what are those white glowing dots are besides Lilimon eyes.

Siriusmon's actions made it himself more liked so I'm sure Dilbitmon's actions will. Hopefully... Both forms better have anime movie animation quality... But that will not happen sadly.

Angoramon's evolution line is S tier from start to finish.
Jellymon's is also very nice. I'm surprised how much hate I've seen for Amphimon outside these forums. Some people wanted something more flamboyant I guess?

My only real issue is that it deviates from the clear age progression theme they were going for. Then again, it's not fair to make that assumption when we don't even have a profile.

Sheet huh I see. Thanks guys.

Amphimon got hate? Nah some other internet comments gave huge praise for such big change on her. Instead of usual "Hot Lady" digimon meme, they say.

Yes, this is more or less the case with Angewomon(02) and Garudamon. Fans were expecting something like Merukimon or Valkyrimon for Garudamon, and Ophanimon for Angewomon.

It seems like the following evolution is embedded in the expectations of fans:
Patamon>Pegasmon(Big version of child form)>HolyAngemon(significant change)>SlashAngemon(Cool version of previous evolution).

The perfect level is like a clincher for fans in imagining the final evolution, which is where they expect something similar but cooler.

Basically people were expecting dragon/dino monsters on Gammamon, Waifu on Jellymon, and for Angoramon split 2 something elegant like Symbare and a rage monster like Lamortmon.

In my opinion, it's something that I always wanted, well in the sense for a "feminine" looking Cyborg Digimon that wouldn't look "sexualized" or otherwise having a strong resemblance to a human woman with cybernetic implements attached towards others who would view the design.

She gives me a sort of "break the mold" thing going on, as she differs from other "girl-like" monsters within the series.

You know, ignoring that all fans across the spectrum seem to love Wargreymon, who doesn't follow up from Metalgreymon in any appreciable way (because he was designed as an Agumon evolution, not a Greymon one), and Metalgarurumon, which ignores everything Weregarurumon added to the Adult level form to just go back to the Adult level form but metal and flying (which wouldn't be as bad if Weregarurumon kept the ice attack from its initial design, but it didn't, so...), and Dukemon, which ignores most of the entire way the line before it was progressing (which caps on Megidramon) to become something completely different instead.

But Digimon fans wouldn't be Digimon fans if they didn't ignore every rule of how they want things to work in the franchise only when it pertains to their favorites or things they're nostalgic for so that isn't shocking. Personally speaking, I saw a lot of appreciation for Amphimon and Dilbit/Diarbuitmon elsewhere, although admittedly a lot of people I know liked Amphimon because they're mecha fans and it's mecha, so take that as you will.

I actually love Amphimon's design. I have a feeling it will end up being one of my favorite female Digimon alongside Sakuyamon.

Amphimon's design makes a lot of sense since its very in character for Jellymon to turn into a giant robot considering her champion form is the result of her getting bored and deciding to watch steel cage death matches. She probably got bored and decided to watch Gurren Lagan instead this time around.

Amphimon is actually the one I like most design-wise.
The other two are okay, but I'd still have preffered atleast one quadruped. Heck I'd be fine with Dilbitmon having a mode change like Duftmon.

Oh well.

From what I see we both Mecha references, Amphimon (Overman Gainer) and Diarbitmon (Talburn from Star driver).

I think I’d love Amphimon if they revealed a Pilot Mode that resembled Jellymon inside of it akin to Belphemon Sleep Mode and it’s resemblance to Phascomon or Ceresmon Medium’s gimmick. I still like to picture that is what’s going on with her.
