They announced it yesterday, and after the surprise a bit ago of the Digital Monster X V2, more of the new story should make everyone quite happy!

First, 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.



Update- Then we have the new comic page above. Thanks to onkei for the translation.
Top right- Emergency Dispatch is here!
Bottom right- Evil Digimon, you shall not pass through me!
Top left- They're trying to tear down the gate!
Bottom left- Heh... I can't let this opportunity pass by



Onto the new chapter!


Update- Translation swapped out for a better one from onkei.


Chapter 7- The Gate of Darkness Opened

At the same time, Examon, who was on standby in the new Digital World, sensed disturbance from the Dark Area. Receiving a plea for help from Anubimon, Examon goes alone without orders to the Dark Area.

When he arrived at the entrance of the Dark Area, he saw masses of evil Digimon trying to break through the gate that was sealing them.

Examon, determining that the first course of action would be to maintain the balance between the old Digital World and the Dark Area, begins to eliminate the evil Digimon that had escaped from the netherworld.

The evil Digimon got pumped thinking that this would be their chance to take down a Royal Knight, but Examon shook off the numerous disadvantages against him as if they were nothing. He flattened one enemy after another, showing them his different level in strength as a Royal Knight.

The evil Digimon's vigor drained upon seeing his overwhelming power, but all of a sudden, they lost their fear of death and began a suicide attack from all sides. Their numbers were so great that Examon began to be pushed back. The mastermind who was controlling this swarm of thousands and thousands of evil Digimon was...

Lilithmon X who had X-evolved during this mayhem.

With a playful smile, Lilithmon X herself joined in the attack, defeating Examon. At last, the evil Digimon were free from the Dark Area.

News of this incident spread throughout the Dark Area in the blink of an eye. Hearing that one of the Seven Demon Lords had achieved a new X-evolution and defeated one of the Royal Knights increased the spirits of other evil Digimon.


On top of getting to see Lilithmon X, they gave us another teaser...

Chapter 8 is coming tomorrow!


So once again... more to come!

All this news for the new Digital Monster X, it's wonderful to see them throw us new designs this soon! The motif they chose for Lilithmon X is wonderful, I dig her butterfly aesthetics. I can't wait to see more!

Man, this is hype, if only digimon created storylines like this, even weekly it would be so much more invested in the franchise

With Examon being added to the story, it might not be too long before we see his x form soon.

Butterfly theme is great, especially with how the Lust crest is incorporated.

Original Lilithmon's clothing was more indicative of a Chinese imperial consort or a high-class geisha design. Lilithmon X's clothing is a way more risque and provocative courtesan design, while still being a beautiful Asian design.

Edit: I've noticed that the 1904 opera, Madama Butterfly, seems like a possible huge source of inspiration for Lilithmon X. It's pretty well-known (though I'm mainly only familiar with the Bayonetta incarnation).

I do like that Lilithmon X retains the original's elegance despite being more risque than her predecessor, especially with the butterfly wings.

Having the demonic butterfly wings mimicking the Great Archangels' multiple wings is genius. Even both wings of her have different designs is pretty interesting. But maybe that's her activated battle technique because of the Lust symbol shown on that her wing?

Surprised Lilithmon X didn't get even more exposed for having X Antibody, more additional demonic designs actually made her look even beautiful and stronger. I like how colorful gradient shading on her whole design look!

This is a perfect set up for GranDracumon Death X evolving Examon, since Death X evolution was mentioned with GranDracumon another update but I don't want to get my hopes up.

I like the eye and butterfly motif on Lilithmon.

It's really cool seeing Anubimon in all of this too. I hope he gets x evolvution.

I wonder if we're meant to identify the shadowy evil Digimon in that one panel. One of them at least looks like VenomVamdemon's crotch.

I like the butterfly aesthetic, although I can't help but wish they had gone a little... uglier, I suppose.

Wait is Lilithmon homaging Flymon? She has similar eyes in then same colors on her wings, she has honeycombs on her lower dress, and bug wings. Which arent a bee's but still.

The eyes are probably in reference to her attack, Nazar Nail, nazars being amulets with eye designs that protect against the Evil Eye.

Maybe "Honeycomb" design is probably simply digital-looking rather than Bee honeycombs?

So the evil Digimon below Anubismon seems to be Lucemon X, right?

Lilithmon X designs looks nice... I always enjoy X-forms of non armored Digimon because they need to have more changes than simply getting spikier. Overall her outfit looks great although even with the Crest on it the right wing looks kind of plain in comparison to the rest of her design. Maybe if the wing itself had a bit more of a pattern/texture on it...

Anyway, the story is heating up nicely... Examon being defeated by a "playful" Lilithmon X was unexpected but it makes sense from a general lore/balance standpoint that individual Demon Lords would be stronger than the individual Royal Knights to make the story work since there 12 Digimon in one group and only 7 in the other.

Looking forward to seeing either Examon X or maybe Death-X Examon (Death-Xamon?). What I am hoping for is maybe something like Death-X Examon going on a rampage that neither the Royal Knights or Demon Lords are able to stop from some convoluted reason and then, from their sanctuaries at the different ends of the Digital Worlds Volcanicdramon and and Metallicdramon appear and we get a 3 dragon showdown as a nice way to tie in those two with the general Digimon Lore in a more substantial way. Somewhat of a low probability scenario since neither of the two had been associated with X-antibody stuff before, but Volcanicdramon was incorporated into V-Pets before, so maybe...

For a Demon Lord of Lust, Lilithmon X is quite more conservative than any other X evolved female digimon
