A fun batch this weekend...

betelgammamon_october9_2021.png


After Digimon Ghost Game episode 2 aired, Digimon Web put up social media art of BetelGammamon, who is introduced in the episode.. The attached message:
Thanks for watching Digimon Ghost Game episode 2 The Mystery of the Museum!
To save Hiro, Gammamon evolved! BetelGammamon!🔥




And new art from Kenji Watanabe! Well, kind of new...

The art shows off the 'delivery-person' BlackTailmon from episode 1. He posted it to Instagram a few days ago. The attached message:
My favorite part of the show, this Digimon. Kurone... or rather, the deliveryperson is BlackTailmon. They've been so busy their eyes are getting worse. Please do your best.

It isn't actually clear if he's commenting on BlackTailmon's eyes being different, or if he is commenting on his own eyesight. (Someone else might have a better read on it.)

The 'Kurone...' is him jokingly starting to say 'Kuroneko'. BlackTailmon's outfit, and the cat logo on their head, is designed after the well known Yamato Transport company, which is often referred to as 'Kuroneko'. Kuroneko of course meaning 'black cat', which is certainly where the gag of having BlackTailmon as a delivery person came from.


If he posts episode related art later it'll be added here.



And more art!

Chief Animation Director Nishino Ayana also posted some artwork a few days ago, this time of Hiro and Gammamon. Her message was just saying the show had begun, her position, and linking to where the show was streaming.




Then some Ghost Game related photos...

The first four are a few more images of the Fujishop Laketown Ghost Game display.

The fifth image is a shot of the recording script to episode 1.




Then a contest for those in Japan...

With Ghost Game beginning, they're also doing a contest in Japan. (2)
You follow Digimon Web on Twitter & RT the contest/campaign tweet.
5 people will each get 20 packs of the Digimon Chocolate Snacks w/ Stickers.
These were some of the first products announced as having Ghost Game material in it.

We also have a decent look at both packaging styles, Ghost Game and Adventure:.



And then, with a model kit release...

Now that the Figure-rise Standard Model Kit of WarGreymon is out, we have a good look at the new art on the box.



Then we have a few different reference book updates...

First up we have some Digimon from Ghost Game added!

Then we have entries that aren't new, but have been updated...

Half a dozen different Digimon entries have been updated with a button that swaps to alternate profile artwork. These are alternate images used for these Digimon, sometimes showing different forms, or poses, etc.

Is Kurone BlackGatomon's name, or was he saying kuro neko before "correcting" himself?

Yamato, the company that most people noticed the references for BlackTailmon's look is often referred to as "Kuroneko" by people.

Kuroneko being 'black cat' is likely where the gag of BlackTailmon getting a delivery outfit in the first place came from.

I meant to add that to the article, but got sidetracked making sure nothing else was in my notes to add.

So... That's why BlackTailmon got that terrible eyes? Just by working? To deliver what?

A black Gatmon delivery person is funny. But that new Gammamon looks good. Maybe the best evo for it. Though that Blue one might also be good. Though I feel like the colors could be switched and it might work more. Maybe.

The Existence of Deliveryman BlackGatomon implies the Existence of Delivery Service CEO Lilithmon.

The Digimon equivalent of Hataraku Maou-sama, except genderbent and in mail services instead of fast food. Presumably there's a Holyangemon somewhere who was an Amazmon employee for a while.

Pretty sure Kenji's referring to Black Tailmon's eye since it was drawn that way (kinda blackened due too tiredness).

...I really like your idea. Thank you very much. I hope we get more on this character. At least a little bit.

To be fair, Lilithmon herself has done delivery in the XW manga:
