Another V-Pet update!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

It's time for MonMon Memo 39! This time it's a bit of an early look at something everyone who ordered the Digimon X2 is looking forward to... the booklet!


Less than 2 weeks to get in a pre-order for the Digimon X2 if you want it!


On this site, the background story that is indispensable to help you enjoy the V-Pets are told in a short story format. If you don't read it, the immersive feeling of the Digimon X will change completely.


In the previous V-pet, the Black and White, Digimon Chronicle X was accompanied by a 4 page story that was drawn, in more detail, in a comic format. Of course, the Digimon X2 also comes with a booklet!


In this MonMon Memo we introduce the first page of this booklet, even though it's still in the rough illustration stage of being made!

The powerful illustration by Mr. Soh Moriyama is fully visibly despite being in a rough stage at the moment. Look forward to further details in the future, at this stage it's still fun, if a bit rough. It's apparently a scene from Chronicle X Chapter 7! Lilithmon X, eagerly standing in front of Examon, who was crushing the evil Digimon trying to escape from the Dark Area.

You can't miss the expression in the drawings! The continuation where the Seven Great Demon Kings appear one after another is also very worrisome.


The Digimon X2 story is across 4 pages in the booklet. Please enjoy it as soon as you get it!

Look forward to when you can share the excitement of this story, stay tuned for the Digimon X2 Red and Purple.

They finish saying seeya in the next update!

In addition, Premium Bandai will be doing one of their product lotteries to help celebrate their 10th Anniversary.

They're going to have limited stock of a number of items to celebrate and a couple of them are Digimon items! These are most likely extra stock that was made in case of issues that would require replacements or simply extras they decided to hold onto for whatever reason that they've decided is time to sell off.


These items won't be gotten by any of us, but it's nice to see them back in a limited fashion.

The items are:
The CSA Digivice 1999 for 8,640 yen each.
The Digital Monster X Black & White for 3,780 yen each.


The lottery can be entered by people in Japan by clicking the big orange button towards the bottom of each items product page. Applying to enter ends August 23rd.

The lottery winners who can purchase the items will be announced on August 30th.




I don't expect any intermediaries will want to try dealing with a lotto, but if you want to try...

You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
From Japan
Rider Proxy
Nippon-Yasan

The Bandai Premium store has also chosen to affiliate themselves/recommend a few potential shops to be used as intermediaries for non-Japanese buyers:
Buyee
From Japan (this From Japan link shows various items that they waive commission fees for.)
Samurai Buyer
DEJapan

You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the link to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded in the news article for the products are exactly what you'll need to send them.

Some of the intermediaries have a full storefront and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.

I really hope the western 20th release went well because I would love to get an English version of the X2 some day as well. I absolutely love the design of the red one and the booklet art looks awesome!

I enjoyed the booklet for the first Digimon X, even if I had to use fan-translations to understand it. Both booklets seem to represent that start of each of their respective conflicts. Jesmon X announcing the start of the fighting competition in the first Digimon X, and the start of the Dark Area invasion led by Lilithmon X in the Digimon X2.

For the booklet from the first Digimon X, the overall order of the pages was left-to-right, but the individual pages themselves were read right-to-left.

Can't quite understand what they're saying, but it looks like the X2's booklet is also read right-to-left. It seems jarring if Examon was yelling an exclamation in one panel, then calmly asking a question in the next panel. It's also more dramatic if Lilithmon first showed up with a close-up, before zooming out to reveal the army she's leading. There's also a pause in dialogue when the army is shown, which would be slightly awkward if it was placed in the middle of the conversation between Examon and Lilithmon, rather than after it.

Lilithmon X antibody seems to have the same eye pattern going on as matadormon and piedmon
