Another update!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

MonMon Memo 32 is up first!

They follow up on the recent announcement of the Digital Monster X Version 2!


They start by pointing out it's a direct sequel to the Digital Monster X, and the main theme is... 'The Coming of the Seven Great Demon Lords!'

They also reveal that their own shorthand for the new V-Pet is calling it the Digimon X2.



The Seven Great Demon Lords escaped the influence of the X-program in the Dark Area. And now we get to see the depiction of them moving with their new opportunities...

They know what we really care about is what their X-Evolved forms look like, they note you can see them in the new V-Jump!


They know another concern among fans is 'how' they gain their X-Evolved forms.

They've been revealing that in Digimon Chronicle X, which they recently have continued. They'll update the info of the world and story of the Digimon X2 from time to time, so they ask you not to miss it.


One element they changed for the new content is the idea of enjoying the story from the 'evil' point of view.

The key of the game this time is to raise a demon king Digimon and invade the old digital world! You can immerse yourself in the spirits of evil and watch the chronicle from that dark point of view.

They hope you enjoy the various ways you can do so.


The Digimon X2 has an evolution path filled with dark Digimon, but depending on what you do... you might end up on a good road.


They'll have more information when the product goes up, including in new MonMon Memos!



And on top of that, we have Chapter 8 of Digimon Chronicle X, translated thanks to onkei!

For those who need to catchup...

Chapters 1 and 2 in English can be found here.
Chapters 3 and 4 in English can be found here.
Chapters 5 and 6 in English can be found here.


Chapter 8- The Expanding Threat
While Lilithmon X was born, DarkKnightmon and the Seven Great Demon Lord Barbamon were off at another area skirmishing. DarkKnightmon, who'd been sealed inside the Dark Area due to his cruel nature, had previously been targeting the position of Seven Great Demon Lord as well as [Barbamon's] treasure. He challenged Barbamon to a fight.

When Barbamon and DarkKnightmon realized that the old Digital World and new Digital World were attempting to connect to each other, they fought each other to be the first to break through the Dark Area's gate in order to be the first to get their hands on the new Digital World's sleeping treasure.
And then, the two fated adversaries achieve X-evolution from the X-antibodies that they each obtain.

No Digimon there could stop the two X-antibody Digimon. All the Digimon there could do was shudder in fear from the after-effects of their fierce fighting as they waited for the Royal Knights to arrive.

As the masses of evil Digimon continued to grow, another Seven Great Demon Lord began their move.

His name, Demon.

Demon, from achieving X-evolution after obtaining the X-antibody, now had power that was equal to the "Super-Ultimate level Digimon" that he himself had formerly plotted to revive. Demon X took advantage of the chaos that reigned between the Dark Area and the old Digital World to test his powers. He began to flex the limits of how violent he could be. However, it was only a preparatory phase for his revenge against the forces of good, his ultimate goal.

As Demon X waited impatiently for the arrival of the strongest of the forces of good, the Royal Knights, he continued to trample down the old Digital World and stored up his energy.

Small typo: Chapter 9 is the one that's coming on June 24th.

Interesting how DarkKnightmon and Barbamon are treated as rivals. Moreover, this incarnation of DarkKnightmon seems to be implied to be just as powerful as a Demon Lord.

I love how V-Tamer's Arcadiamon revival is treated as Demon's default background, almost like Demon X is some sort of alternate universe version of V-Tamer's Demon that chose X-Antibody instead of reviving Arcadiamon.

Following the story of the evil guys is an interesting change of pace. Although they did focus on the Royal Knights in the first few chapters lol

And raising a Lucemon X and attempting for the goal of ending the Digimon Multiverse sure is an interesting story choice lol...

and I guess they treat AxeKnightmon as a Mega now, he was a Ultimate in that previous VPet they did. Interesting.

I'm actually enjoying this series.

They might still treat him as a Perfect though since the only time the X-Antibody changes the level of a Digimon, it was Armors into Adults since that's what Armor tends to default to.

It's probably more of a case of DarkKnightmon technically being an Ultimate, but has the strength of a Mega for narrative purposes (like Lucemon).

Besides, they've already recently established DarkKnightmon's level as Ultimate in the Digimon X continuity (frankly, Ultimate makes the most sense anyways, considering how he parallels with Metal Greymon and Shoutmon X3, as implied by Grey Knightsmon and Shoutmon X3SD).

So Demon X is basically a Super Ultimate that's very interesting I really hope he faces off against Ulforceveedramon X just for V tamers nostalgia.

I thought Perfect made the most sense for him as well given his desire to usurp Bagramon whom I regard as Ultimate/Mega plus the fact the this would add an extra slap to the face to Lilithmon and Blastmon's demotion if DarkKnightmon was a level below them.

Wha...? A... Xros digimon with non-level class actually got X antibody?! DarkKnightmon X?!

Barbamon X's appearance does match to the old king...

Demon X's power is equal to his personal Super Ultimate level? Interestingly I wonder if UlforceV-dramon X will have same case as this?

OmniShoutmon was part of that previous X-Antibody voting when Crusadermon/Minveramon won, so I guess they're not really afraid if using Xros mon for this. AxeKnightmon X will be assigned a level in the V-Pet

I don't thin Ulforce X will be considered that, but maybe he'll show up in one of these later chapters.

Demon X looks really great. I wonder if they got Tenya Yabuno as a guest illustrator for this artwork or just emulated his stylistic quirks.
His Super Ultimate theme is interesting, but since his profile in V-Jump states that his strength grows in accordance with his rage and he only achieves a state of Super Ultimate power once his rage "exceeds the limit"... So with the chapter mentioning him still storing up his energy I guess his plan hinges on whether he's still pumped up on max rage when the RK arrive.
It's interesting how specificially he's targeting them too... It makes sense that he would hate them for being forces of good but in his original profile he was clearly stated to be pissed at God who so far doesn't really seem to have a connection to Yggdrasil and the RK (although it would be interesting to know his status during the whole X antibody debacle.) I wonder if them leaving out any specific mentions of God in the description of Demon X is just because they don't plan on incorporation him in the current scenario.

Also, unless they officially state DarkKnightmon to be Ultimate now, I'll still treat him as an extraordinary perfect in this cintinuity, same deal as with Astamon for example.

I thought Perfect made the most sense for him as well given his desire to usurp Bagramon whom I regard as Ultimate/Mega
That argument doesn't really work though... It's not like usurption can't take place between two ultimates... even if they were both Ultimates with the about the same level of strength, Darkknightmon's motive still makes sense as getting rid of a rival.

I meant that DarkKnightmon is envious of Bagramon's power which wouldn't make much sense unless the former was weaker than the latter meaning them being the same level is unlikely hence the former being Perfect and the latter Ultimate.

Plus I believe Bagramon himself told DarkKnightmon to his face that they were never in equal level.

DarkKnightmon... I definitely didn't see that one coming. He looks posh as heck with all the gold accents. I rather like it!

Huh, didn't see that one coming! I was wondering if that "evil digimon" (singular) they referred to before was just a broader term, or something more specific. Very cool, and very surprising.

Can a brother get a Figuarts/Digivolving Spirits X-antibody 'mon? Please?

The low res art kills me when we get a highly detailed Digimon. DarkKnightmon looks amazing though. I hope we get lower forms of demons like childs and adults instead of just final forms too.

I still don't know much about having V-pet devices but knowing those two red and purple V-pets that have SGDL ultimate ones whose are mostly Virus types, their previous evo lines most likely will be Virus types installed additionally equals to hoping some ones getting X forms for sure just like Renamon X and others did.


But does it mean a new jogress will appear? Like all of your theories popping lately after LordRagnamon in other old topics? Or maybe Odugomon will get X form since Jogresses are all raging about now!

Well that's a surprise. That sure look more and more evil. Which fits them perfectly. You have to admit, these really fit sometimes.

Something I've noticed, Chapter 9 seems to be delayed by a day. It's saying 6/25 instead of 6/24. Or maybe I'm going crazy.

Edit: Actually, Chapter 9 seems to be released already?
