I didn't see the episode, is it Japanese? I'll wait for the dubbed one. :p
It's online subbed in English.

The dumbed-down English dubs have not and cannot ever fully capture the pure masterpiece quality of the original Japanese versions.

Forgot to comment on the second, third, and fourth episodes.

Episode 2:This is probably the closest a Digimon anime has been to the quality of a Digimon manga series like V-Tamer and Next. So much potential for character development of both the humans and especially the digimon is available in this series! It's almost as if Shoutmon is the lead character instead of Taiki!

MadLeomon's new forms -- Armed MadLeomon and MadLeomon (Orochi Mode) -- remind me a lot of both Imperialdramon's and Dukemon's/Gallantmon's Mode Changing processes. In all cases, one digimon is given the powers and energies by other digimon to create a new form. Imperialdramon was given the powers of all of the other Chosen Children's digimon to become Fighter Mode. He again was later given Omegamon's/Omnimon's energy to become Paladin Mode. Dukemon/Gallantmon was given Grani's energy to become Crimson Mode. And now, MadLeomon takes the energies of his digimon forces to assume his new forms.

But, there's still one question that this episode has left unanswered to us all. What are those footsoldier digimon called?!! :roll:
The blonde-haired guy is Kiriha Aonuma. He leads the Blue Flare team consisting of Greymon, MailBirdramon, and others. It appears that Greymon and MailBirdramon DigiXros into MetalGreymon, with MailBirdramon acting as sort of armor for Greymon.

The other girl watching both teams is Nene Amano. Her team, Twilight (Ack!), consists of several Monitormon, a small green digimon whose name is unknown, DarkKnightmon, and some yellow bird digimon whose name is also unknown (but rumored to be this "Sparrowmon" that we've heard about).

]"NEVER GIVE UP" by Sonar Pocket is an awesome opening! I really like how it contrasts with the series' apparent dark atmosphere with its optimistic views giving a sense of hope within the turmoil of war.

"WE ARE Xros Heart" by Wada Kouji ( :x) is just amazing. This insert really pumps up the battle sequences as things escalate to the next level of intensity. My only real problem with it is that it's kind of inaudible. It wasn't given subbed karaoke by any fansubbers since it was so hard to hear, so it's hard to make any real judgement on it other than the shallow praise I just gave on the tone of this song.

As for the lack of an ending theme, either they're saving for later, or there just isn't one this time. Who knows.


Episode 3: Tactimon and Lilthmon come out of the shadows, but Blastmon remains silhouetted. Perhaps the former two will face Taiki's group before Blastmon does, thus necessitating the secrecy of his appearance (even if his exposed image has already been seen on the Toei website).

Ba'almon is a mysterious figure. His resemblance to Beelzebumon/Beelzemon has already been pointed out, but he also strikes a similarity to Wizarmon/Wizardmon (the clothing design) and somewhat Mummymon (the color scheme and face) as well.

MadLeomon's final hour has come. His trump card this time is "Drimogumon" (Why the name change?) who launches several Bamboo Shoots upward throughout the Village of Smiles in a disaster known as "Lumpy Day" (lolwut?).

Kiriha introduces himself and his MailBirdramon to Taiki-tachi, wanting Taiki to be his subordinate. Taiki refuses, sensing something dark from Kiriha. Kiriha then unveils a Golemon that he does a DigiXros with MailBirdramon and... it's powerful, but lame. Also, no Greymon today.

During the battle with MadLeomon, notice that Shoutmon has difficulty against one Pteranomon/Pteramon, simply knocking it aside with his attack instead of obliterating it like he had done in previous episodes.

MadLeomon (Final Mode) seems like steroid-enhanced version of himself. Dorulumon's introduction to the others was great. His protection of "his Cutemon" shows that he's not this cold, bruiser but has a soft side as well. And Taiki recognition of Dorulumon from his dream shows that that dream he had before was nothing short of an important vision. And we see now that, back in episode 1) Taiki had previously tried to recreate the ShoutmonX4 form that he had seen in his dream, but Dorulumon was absent then, so it was incomplete. Now that Dorulumon was here, he tried again and successfully created ShoutmonX3 (probably not knowing that Star Sword was needed to form X4).

And now, another Leomon bites the dust. And the Xros Heart team is born. But then, Nene appears to the group to explain about the Code Crown that came out of MadLeomon...


Episode 4: The Code Crowns appear to be the MacGuffin of this series. And Zenjirou is the new "Brock" of this series (both Daisuke/Davis and Junpei/J.P. fit this role before).

Nene strikes me as the archetypal "mysterious person who advises/aids the hero from the shadows in times of need), though she'll probably be more unique than most of those characters who fit this role.

Going from one "Zone" to another gives this series the feeling that it's based off of an RPG video game or something.

The Mantaraymon in this episode are huge, and equipped with runway armor. Were those submarines that the Hangyomon/Divermon launched from actual Mantaraymon or were they just artificial ones? If the answer is yes to both, then that would make Mantaraymon be of the same kind of digimon as Mechanorimon/Mekanorimon.

Neptunemon is one digimon I did not expect to see; at least not so soon. They're really dishing out the high-leveled digimon so early on in this series instead of building up to them like they had done before. This makes me wonder if Tactimon, Lilthmon, Blastmon (and maybe Ba'almon) are immensely more powerful than they appear to be. Makes you kinda wonder what their boss is like.

I LOVED the scene with Taiki and Zenjirou actually participating in the fight themselves. It's so good to see the humans being more than just energy-channeling cheerleaders.

But I gotta say that this whole episode (and likely the next one) is VERY reminiscent of chapters 8-10 of V-Tamer. I mean think about it. You've got...
  • The setting being an oceanside populated by aquatic digimon - Net Ocean; Island Zone
  • The legendary heroes of a human and his digimon friends - Taichi-tachi; Xros Heart
  • The underdog youngster they befriend and who helps them out later in battle - Gon the Gomamon; ChibiKamemon
  • The old elder digimon who holds something sacred - Lord Whamon; Archelomon
  • The evil water tyrant causing trouble - Lord Marine; Neptunemon
  • The evil general said tyrant works for - Etemonkey; Tactimon
  • The powerful minion boss(es) of said tyrant - Octomon & Gesomon; Octomon
  • A miracle happening in an underwater battle, enabling the failing heroes to claim victory - the Digivice 01 enables Taichi to mentally communicate with Zero; ChibiKamemon DigiXrosses with ShoutmonX2
  • Something cool happening to the little guy in the end - Gon evolves to an Ikkakumon; ChibiKamemon becomes an honorary member of Xros Heart
Need I say more?

I didn't plan to watch the series, Digimon's been kinda dead to me but I will watch the first episode, it sounds GOOOD. I still think Huanlongmon is awesome...

HAHA, when I joined a few months ago, I escaped the nuts warning, I have...dogibility radiating from me!

I highly recommend the subbed version done by the group known as Ryuu-Rogue. They're the best quality subbers of the three groups subbing this series. They're the same people responsible for subbing all of Adventure in its entirety.

There is just so much potential for this series. Shoutmon has got to be the best goggleboy digimon partner ever! He's more of his own character than Taiki is. He has his own set agenda and goals that he wishes to carry out, needing Taiki to be his "General" to grant him the power he needs to accomplish these ambitions that he has. I can tell that there is so much character development in store for him alone, in addition to the development of the human characters.

But don't just watch the first episode alone. At least see the second episode too, as it picks up with the first leaves off.

Everything that happens in this thus far has been on the scale ranging from awesome to epic!

DigiXros!

I'm on episode 3 now, it's cool and all but I don't really like the humans, mainly the girl character, she's too...wimpy...and annoying.
What also bugs me is that the series is trying to be all deep...and using flashbacks when there's only been two episodes.
Besides that it's good.

Ok, ve look through the episodes that this person has. Episodes 1, 2, and 4 all use the correct Ryuu-Rogue subs. But episode 3 uses the lesser quality Wolf Pack Productions subs. Also, becuase the media player that this guy is using, some of the subs in the episodes appear all over the screen, covering the video from full clear view.

The way I see them is by going to Ryuu-Rogue's main website itself and downloading the episodes from them directly when they release them. Then I watch them on a media player in all their gigantic HD glory.

Crap, fallen so far behind, I checked out a vid of OmegaShoutmon and such, looks like the series really took off.
I think about the only thing I dislike is how they represented Fanglongmon and Machinedramon, and to a lesser degree Lucimon. They turned Fang and Machine into weak minions from what I could tell...

Yeah, but really, the original Mugendramon did start off as a minion. In Digimon World 1, he may have served as the final boss of the game, but he was still just the minion of Analogman, the game's true master villain. Plus, HiMugendramon was just epic!

And while Lucemon Satan Mode did seem to be beaten all too swiftly, he was a great villain! Crafty, manipulative, his heel turn seemed almost out of place to someone who hadn't seen Frontier, as he came across as being genuinely sincere before he switched to his true form of Falldown Mode.

Though, I agree on Huanglongmon. He's supposed to be something like the god of the gods, yet here he's just Dorbickmon's steed.

Well, I meant mostly in the fact that Machinedramon here seemed kinda stupid whereas season 1's was at least intelligent. Fang/Huang longmon was pretty disappointing, especially since Dorbickmon was one of the less cool looking Dragon Digimon in my opinion.

Ah now I remembered what I meant to say yesterday, Bagramon seems a very odd villain. One one hand, he doesn't look nearly as obvious as all the past villains, on the other hand...he just looks really weird.

I just watched Digimon Data Squad today for the first time and it was AMAZING!

I dont know the name of the episode and i ididnt see it fully,but what i saw was awesome:

-First thing to note was that the Digomon were huge compared to humans(more than previous seasons)

-Peomon was trying to saty with some girl,and the main hero didnt want it(he had an Agumon,like Tai)

-Peomon punched the guy in the face,how did he react?He punched Peomon back in the face!That was hilarious and awesome at the same time!

-Then a owl Digimon appeared and said to Peomon "JOIN ME!"then he attacked,then the dude was like"You want some this and climbed the eletric tower to punch him.He is Hardcore.

_then he fell of the tower and some guys digivolved to catch him,then with the help of peomon he did punch the guy in the face."

-then some bad guy appeared(i dont remenber his name well,but he did look like he was wearing a lion style cape)

-Agumon digivolves to Greymon(looking at Greymon shows how the animators or the design changed,it was kinda different from the original).Greymon attacked,the guy vanished,

Overall nice episode.
I have to watch more.

Besides there is guy hardcore enough ounch Digomn in the face ;)

Watch the Japanese version. While the Data Squad dub is indeed the best dub thus far, the original Japanese verison, Savers, is still the better. ;)

Though, that was GeoGreymon. ;)

And, yes, Masaru/Marcus is awesome. 8)

My review of the Final Episode of Xros Wars, and the series as a whole.

Warning *SPOILERS*

HOLY Smoked bacon and cheddar cheese-sticks(, Batman)!

Xros Wars is flawed, but epic. Epic, but flawed. It is far from perfection, but far from atrocious. When it's bad, it's blah, but when it's good, it's REALLY GOOD!

The biggest flaw of this show is its issues in pacing and juggling its subplots. It's really sad to see how other series before it could handle these two more easily, but it did manage to stay entertaining all the way through.

That said, the music was AWESOME. Xros Wars has to got hold the title of best music of any Digimon series ever. So many tunes that can be called "Crowning Music of Awesome" and superb use of the trope "Autobots, Rock Out!"

The entire concept of DigiXros (and variations thereof) was a unique, interesting, and very pleasant aspect in this series. The sheer diversity of what could be created from it brought forth a grand sense of ingenuity and imagination like never before. But a major hindrance in it was the characters' lack of putting it to competent use often enough. This particular episode demonstrated how DigiXros can be used in a wide variety in its finest. And the fact that it was Yuu who pulled off these combinations gave us a look at how imaginative he can be when given the chance to shine in the spotlight.

Two DigiXros combos that stood out to me the most in this episode were GolemJijiKamemon and the nameless Dracomon X Cyberdramon DigiXros. Seeing these two onscreen made me realize that this is the closest that we have come to seeing anything resembling Coredramon and/or JumboGamemon in animated form. While these two weren't an exact match for those two, they were still close enough to be satisfying (since Dracomon and/or ChibiKamemon actually evolving at this point without reason would have come off like a butt-pull).

Though, I gotta say that the DigiMemories seemed very underused in this show. After episode 30, I can't recall them ever being used again until recently. And they were all mostly iconic digimon too, so the fact that they chose not to take advantage of fanservice with more use of them just baffles me. Even in this battle, they seemed underused, running out of power as soon as they get Taiki et al inside the Dark Stone, and then just being 15 of the many Magic Mushrooms for Shoutmon later just felt like they didn't really need to be in this show other than for additional fanservice and to sell toys. Don't get me wrong, fanservice can be good, it's just has to be used well. Still, this show did already have a lot of good fanservice in it.

And what better way to end a fanservice-y show than with a whole lot of fanservice? We got a fantastic last look at Taiki/Akari, and a great bit of Beelzebumon/Mervamon. Not to mention the biggest, most "fanfic-y yet somehow perfectly fitting" innovation of the Final Xros into Shoutmon X7 Superior Mode. Yes, it was a lackluster final fight, but the sheer majesty and magnificence of it all still made it enjoyable.

In fact, watching this actually come to fruition (the fusing of every digimon in the Digital World into one giant, angelic knight robot-mon) really shocked me. Not becuase I didin't see it coming or anything, but because the concept felt so familair to me. Years ago, as a little kid, I would brainstorm ideas for battles and stories that I could play out with my Digimon toys and other toys I had. And one of them, the final battle story, involved every digimon in the world coming together to unite with my protagonist digimon characters into one giant holy robotic knight digimon (the process of which I referred to as a colossal miraculous version of DNA Digivolution) that would face off against the ultimate darkness. Seeing what my child-like mind crafted coincidentally becoming a reality made this moment all the more precious to me.

And the bringing of everyone back to life... YAY! I'm glad those who sacrificed themselves were given a second chance to come back for a happy ending, thought it did seem a bit soon for some (like Olegmon and Apollomon). But for Deckerdramon and Grademon (who's still a bit of nobody to us), it was fair. And now, all those who sacrificed themselves before can now be commended in person for their efforts. If I were Shoutmon, I'd have all them be awarded medals of honor and valor for their noble efforts of heroism.


Speaking of which: Shoutmon. Dag gone it, I love you, Shoutmon! You MADE this show worth it all. To me, you ARE Digimon Xros Wars! You are the epitome of what a Partner Digimon should be! A fully fleshed out individual with his own three-dimensional personalty that still compliments that of his Human Partner; and sense of intelligence, wit, charisma, hot-bloodedness, and charm all wrapped up into one nice neat package; and the ability to pull off the Deus Ex Machina "wow" factor with his higher forms without straying too far away from the genuine person that he is. You are THE reason I watched this show all the way through, and the fact that you're not only returning for next series but also getting an epic redesign makes me all the more willing to dive into that series. Shoutmon, don't ever stop rockin' out loud with that soul of rock of yours. Rock on and don't ever change.

As for next series, all I can say it BRING IT!

Well, it was such a tease! We see their silhouettes in the title card like so, but they don't even show up until the very end of the episode as the obscured cameos seen in these images. They don't speak or even move (aside from Masaru hitting his fists in eagerness). And I haven't seen the next episode yet, but from what I hear, it's just another "monster-of-the-day" filler. :BANG_HEAD:

Though, one thing I do know about the five leaders is that they are supposed to be some kind of antagonists in this series. Don't know exactly how (Deceit? Mind control? A test for the protagonists? Etc.), but they aren't allied with the good guys this time.
