DIGIMON CROSS WARS Coming In July

And Shoutmon's the sidekick.


When I look at this news from ANN, I can’t help thinking of that Shakespeare quote about the “rose by any other name” smelling just as sweet. Last week, we let you know that there’s a new DIGIMON show coming down the TV pipeline and, now, we’ve got a title for the hitherto unnamed show - - CROSS WARS.  Do you feel more or less excited after that? Inferring from that title, I’ll have to presume that this series, which premieres in July on TV Asahi, will have something to do with a conflict between cross-breeds of digital monsters. Just maybe...

Apparently, Shoutmon, who we identified in the previous post about this, will be playing second fiddle to the new main character of this new show. Judging by these leaked scans from V Jump, I’m going to have to hazard another guess and presume that Shoutmon is the little orange robot T-Rex. Then again, considering he’s got those V-shaped horns, it might be more accurate to describe him as a dragon - - the line between dragons and “thunder lizards” has historically been thin, hasn’t it?

I’ll venture one last guess and presume, based on that creature’s name, that his powers will somehow concern him shouting out of that bear trap of a mouth he has. Do you figure these presumptions are off base, oh presumptuous Anime Vice community?

Does anybody else think that the "goggle kid" of this series looks and dresses too much like Davis from the second Digimon series?
 
I am loyal to all things Digimon since it was my first anime, but I can't say that CROSS WARS gets me more pumped up for the series... Sounds more like what the next Star Wars film should be named.
 
I will watch this series, and I will see it through... but what is wrong with using a Digimon that previously existed? (Like Patamon)
I understand how on the third series he created the Digimon but now! There's no need to add Digimon...
 
It's like Pokemon and how the 150 grew to 300 and counting...

@sora_thekey:  Yes he could practically be related especially with the Veemon/Guilmon hybrid next to him.
 
And i disagree on the no need to add Digimon any more part, Unlike Pokemon world the Digital world is supposed to be this dynamic ever evolving world with tons of species coming in to existance if even one part of a code has changed, i just think they need to quit adding Mega Digimon to the list that we aren`t gonna see in the anime.

@Kelleth:  Yeah but there is so much potential in the existent Digimon... I mean why not use other Digimon (like Patamon) to have as spotlight!
Why use the Veemon/Guilmon hybrid then?

O yeah i can see that and yes i would like to see some more of the older digimon take the spotlight but ever since the 3rd season i`ve accepted that it won`t be happening out of the games :(
Looking from the second pic i immediately associate the red one as a Veemon type Digimon with Guilmon`s colour scheme (without the stripes and digi symbol) with some mechanic stuff added. its just what first came to mind ^^

The day we see a goggleboy with a Patamon as partner in a digimon anime will be the day we will see hell freezing XD
 
Though It sure would give it a so different touch, I mean it is always the dinosaur/dragon type as the main digimon with the goggleboy (and not goggleboy in the case of Masaru from Digimon Savers).
 
Now about the new goggleboy, why in the world they cloned Davis?  Anyone can say he is Davis' twin brother  o.o

Nope. In order to prevent the pain, we'll have to clip those wings.

Hey never let anyone keep you away from your dreams, we all have right to dream ^^
 
Believe me I'm a huge Patamon fan and nothing would make me happier than seeing a Goggleboy with a Patamon as partner ^^

In your face @John_Martone! @LPatamon just gave me hope... and made me feel better :P

 
Actually ever since I was little (Digimon being my first anime...) I was waiting for the day TK +Patamon and Kari + Gatomon would take center stage.... sadly never happened... 
I even made fan-fiction about that and made fan comic (or I guess manga) of that!

@Kelleth: well its good that we final have a name i hope it will be good but i would rather see  a series about one of the digimon manges. 
 
I also wonder if this s a different universe or is it part of the other three.  
 
 
And as a big digimon fan I would like to give a shout out to my fav digimon.

@ssjsuperman: all of them is approximately the same universe
