MonMon Memo time!

Time for a new MonMon Memo! The 23rd MonMon Memo reveals some new details for both the Digital Monster X and the CSA Digivice 1999!

Big Dreamer Taoka asks if we were able to see the toy and game livestream from last week.

They introduced various elements with the guests, and will further detail them in the future. Elements like the Digimon cut-in system, so if you didn't see it, the stream has been archived to watch:

The audience gifts are still available to enter to win for those in Japan (until September 24th.)

In addition, they showed off the illustrations for the first and second place winners from the X-Antibody fan vote. Minervamon X-Antibody and RhodoKnightmon X-Antibody!


Onto the actual topic!

This time in MonMon Memo they are introducing new things for the Digital Monster X, which just opened pre-orders, and the CSA Digivice 1999, which closes pre-orders soon.


First up, the Digital Monster X.

There are more than 15 Digimon who will appear in dot form for the first time. More of those Digimon will be introduced in the future, but he's going to introduce the first few now!


First up...

Next up is the CSA Digivice 1999, which he notes has been a popular pre-order.

He knows he's talked about it a bit in the past, but this time he plans to give information that will be released for the first time, and hasn't been discussed previously.

Sleipmon X's face is just hilarious. Those big, dewy, heavy-lidded eyes, and the spiky anime bangs. But it also has multiple arms and a 'taur body, two of my favorite design traits, so I can't say I hate it. And just look at those hands! They're like, zygodactyl! That's so good!

They are looking forward to seeing what the cut-in will look like. Or they could of just made the screen bigger so you dont have to wait for a big attack to see a semi-detailed sprite.

Seriously? Minervamon X artstyle was drawn by Kenji? I thought it was Kagemaru Himeno....

Finally clear view of Sleipmon X's face. I think I prefer the Chronicle story image on Sleipmon X is way better. It's just... weird to have pupils and furry hair is colored differently from that glowing ghosty mane. But still, both Sleipmon X and Crainummon X weren't drawn by Kenji... I will get used to it eventually anyway.

Now that there's a slightly better image of Minervamon X, I have to say, I don't like the design. The chibi idea is clever in theory but just isn't working in practice. The sword and those random Chain Chomps attached to Minervamon's hair are given more importance than Minervamon herself.

LordKnightmon X still looks amazing, though.

Did anyone besides me notice that Sleipmon X has two thumbs on its hands?

Yeah. You are too late to notice.... :/

Look like I was wrong about the shield guards on Sleipmon's hands. I thought it was four tiny shields from the last topic.
How weird. Interestingly those tiny shields on its hands aren't equipped symmetrically... Indeed bizarre... Yeah.

The asymmetrical shield guards and that golden eyepatch... Better be explained why on next official profiles...

You never can tell with X-Evos. Really. It's pretty funny. But these are interesting. I almost want to see Minervamon X animated. Just to see it move with that big sword.
