Another issue of V-Jump!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

First up, they show off the upcoming 20th Anniversary Pendulum.

And we get to see one of Rudomon's evolutions, who visually is quite a surprise...

TheiaRudomon, a Digimon with "Sparkling metallic blue armor!" looks significantly different than we might have expected an evolution of Rudomon to appear. (We aren't 100% sure on the name translation at the moment, it may be Tiarudomon.)

Update- Another image of TheiaRudomon that Kenji Watanabe posted to Twitter.

He also gives a few additional details...

TheiaRudomon is an "ice-beast shield".

He also refers to the difference in design between Rudomon and TheiaRudomon...
By the way, Rudomon is army-inspired, so it's more... Earth, I guess...

He then finishes by commenting on the visual similarities TheiaRudomon has to a prior Digimon...
Mirage and TheiaRudo have different design concepts, but... since they're designed by the same person, considering the number of designs I do I guess some of them would start resembling each other, so hopefully I can be forgiven... or not (^^;;



At the bottom of the page we also get a bit of tri. Part 6 teasing with Ordinemon.

Then we have a nice 2 page spread for the Digimon 1.5 booster set for Battle Spirits.

We get a look at the new art for the Ophanimon Falldown Mode, Raguelmon, Garudamon, and HolyAngemon cards. Not to mention seeing the new Zubamon card (it feels quite differnet than most of the Zubamon art we've seen thus far for him.)

The booster set is coming out right about now in Japan.




We finish with Digimon ReArise

For ReArise you can head over to the ReArise thread to discuss it.


At the bottom we can see details of Alter-B being added to links, along with previews for Digivolving Spirits and the Tamers BD-Box. The Tamers bit has a piece of art we haven't seen before (the one with Dukemon and the others.) Likely the other digibook disc holder?



Thanks to IxLOVExDigiMon for the images and DimensaoDigimon for the heads up.
Thanks to shin and garm for translations.

Since he looks like a tiny MirageGaogamon I wonder if this means each Ludomon evolution will be themed after another type of Digimon or he's a garuru/wolf archetype to match Zubamon's reptile/Agumon role. I love evolutions that are unpredictable but still work.

I like Rudomon's evo. IT's cute!

Interesting how the "new" screenshot doesn't show anything. They are trying to keep a tight lip this time I guess? mmmmm.

That may very well be the case though there is a notable difference in that only MirageGaogamon's upper torso was designed to look like a head whereas Tialdomon has a pseudo-head as its entire torso with the pelvis as the lower jaw.

The new Digimon's name could be Tieredmon, but as Marc said in chat TheiaRudomon is most likely. I don't really care for the design. Looks like the dumb super-deformed stuff you get with the Super-grade Appmon.

And it looks like our mystery Digimon from Re-Arise is Sonic the Hedgemon.

I think it's really cool how much variety there is to Rudomon's evolutions yet they still keep a theme (the shields) and keeps progressing through them. Also it's interesting that his champion form has one of those QR Codes.

I also love how Ordinemon looks and the evangelios/D-reaper like vibes she gives off. I hope she can get in Pendulum Ver 20th too. Well now that I think about it... it might not be too far off. We do have Meicoomon's vicious line we just need Ophanimon FD.

It's kinda funny to me how can an oddly cute Digimon like Rudomon can turn into a MirageGaogamon look-alike...

The Secret New Digimon looks like Togemogumon's Rookie form. (I know he's an Armor Level)

Well, sure didn't expect that. Interesting evo. I wonder what would be next?

Huh, not at all what I was expecting with R/Ludomon's evolution. At least it's not just getting bigger/more detailed like Hackmon, Vobomon, and Zubamon... Also is that a QR code on the shield on its left hand?

ReArise looks super cute, and so does that ridiculous hedgehog looking thing. I don't even know what it looks like, but I love it already.

What the Hades? Didn't see that coming. Rudomon turned out as it's Beast type as he evolved into that... Shield Wolf! I thought he'd evolve into Soldier or similar to Tankmon in the appearance. Don't... Tell... Me... Rudomon (Sword) and Zubamon (Shield) will have another new Omegamon evolution -_- oh well he better be Data type of Omegamon.

LMAO Hedgehog digimon that look like Sonic fused with Bolt Hedgehog from Yugioh 5D.

That might be the perspective making the upper body seem bigger than the lower body. Both Bootmon and Shutmon's Bandai artwork do this as well.

Huh, wasn't expecting Rudomon's evo to look like that, but it's not bad. Curious to see Ultimate and Mega versions.

Ordinemon looking appropriately terrifying.

Love ReArise's overally style, nice throwback, and the mystery 'mon looks nice and retro too.

TiaLudomon looks great! I love how they steered away from the homogeneous lines we've been getting!

Nothing too interesting on the pages about ReArise.
They mention having to take care of the Digimon in the DigiTown to keep them cheerful and that they can interact with each other. The new Digimon will probably be revealed on the next Navigator, since they tell us to wait for the next report.
The story begins with a Digimon popping out from the player's (I assume they mean the main character's) phone and attacking with a "spiral" attack. They describe the main girl as "cheerful" and the guy as "cool".

Really like the design of Rudomon's Adult Form. That V-Jump Page is the best in a while.

tbh for design wise I like it. But as an evo from Ludomon I hate it. Ludomon is part of D-brigade which consists mechanoid mutant digimon for the most. I was already happy to see a mutant digimon again, even as new mascot. But the evolution is really out of place. It should be made more mutant and more close into military-related. TheiaRudomon or whatever the name it is just seem too generic humanoid ultimate level heroic digimon from anime that doesn't even deserve the adult level. It's closer into appmon too. I was hoping the evo would be like Commandramon. Dunno why digimon nowadays are too much of heroic design instead of more various traits.Also wtf with the wolf head in the body? It's not miragegaogamon, isn't it?

When was it ever stated to be part of D-brigade or a mutant? Pretty sure that was just people making BS assumptions. It's profile states that it protects areas being targeted by the D-Brigade, not that it's actually part of them.

This is a classic v-pet transition, not homogeneous in design but still within the shield theme. I could easily see it become a shield with a wolf's face on it like this lion-faced shield:

ok my bad then. But that still doesn't change my impression that it seems very out of place. I mean, the shield theme is not really portrayed. What I see is just a deformed miragegaogamon or an usual generic heroic digimon with robot head with hair that doesn't even deserve to be an adult. I guess digimon design nowadays want every digimon to have more heroic look rather than trying to revive another variation design like mutant, cute, bizzare, etc. I can understand if the drastic transition like tankdramon to darkdramon, while looked out of place but it fits very much and the lore behind it is interesting (darkdramon being cyborg hunter is also an interesting trait for the profile), but this one just seem ugghh, generic ultimate level with being adult. It also doesn't look defensive like what Ludomon portrayed.
