I agree its really odd... Angels ok... Demons ok... nuns with guns... HELL NO.I'll never understand why the constant satanic imagery is a-ok, but a nun is taboo. Isn't it usually the other way around?
yeah, there's also a ton of players who don't know anything about Digimon who play the card game just because it's a well designed and fun card game. I've seen a lot of people learning the characters of the franchise through the card game which is great but it also means that a good amount of English players probably didn't/don't know Noir even exists. The people who simultaneously buy the card game on a regular basis but care that much for Noir to not buy boxes or boosters is probably super small. Like, double digits if generousDoubt it, it didn't seem to leave a dent in HM's sales despite having more uproar, so I doubt this card would convince most to cancel. Particularly when it's ultimately one card out of a set that includes many other Digimon rather then a part of a pre-order bonus meant to incentivize people to buy early.
Not sure if you were being serious, but if you were, then I’m sorry to disappoint you, but no.Do you know what's cool about this? The comeback of Citramon anytime soon! We have no BomberNanimon's card so far.
You know we could very much be over thinking it I mean just cause they replaced Noir in this set , and logically will in bt 07 it doesn't rule her out of future boosters entirely espeically if JP ever decides to include a ciel of their own since that would heavily handicap one region over the other since Japanese players could in theory run- whether its a good idea or not - Ciel noir, Blanc, and thier 3 awakened forms.
we also could get Noir repurposed as a promo card down the road I mean would it be an evil evil idea- yes... does it sound like something perfect for a card game - hell yes. I mean think about it Special edition box set... like how yugioh does its special editions and such with various variants or even various sets with various promo cards. Just give us some vanilla Noir with no effect and hey we'd have the complete set and we wouldn't be loosing out on a card since Ciel has JP noir's effect.
But yeah I'm sure there was probably a few reasons that they have no reason to really share with us the WHY i mean i know the current accepted reason - unless i missed some official Q/A that called out catholic backlash for the reason. But looking at it i think it was right in the middle of some hyper sensitivity in the states and such I mean we still are dealing with such things but the idea of having anything with any connection to the color black in the name could potentially cause idiots to blow it out of proportion. But again I don't think we really will ever know exacly why they changed Noir > Ciel for the games. While I feel the English version getting its own Noir is unlikely i'm not going to rule it out just because the first noir was replaced by Ciel and Logically so will the second. Bandai could very well turn the outrage into a way to make money.
would you honestly pass up some special edition set- be it "double Diamond special edition" with 3 boosters and a promo card, or maybe a Tin containing a few packs and a Noir promo card. JP could totally do the same with Ciel whether they have effects or not they could just make a 3rd sister mon card swap then ames and arts between region and we'd have
BT 06 Blanc, BT 06 Noir(jp)/Ciel (EN) and Promo Ciel(jp)/Noir (En)
