And the funny thing is that when you watch the show as a kid you don't even notice, you are oblivious to the whole thing, you just know that her fight against Ladydevimon was lame as fudge and ignore her, then you grow and it clicks, from the beginning that was all pure fanservice!

*breathes heavily* ...Angewomon.

You put "a" instead of "o".

Damn I want that Angewomon. I couldn't care less about the Hikari, I guess I'd leave it in the box.

I've had the hots for Angewomon ever since I was a kid. Think I'll have to get it.

It's Angewomon, not Angewoman.

The fact that Wormmon is paired up with Ken to me makes sense from a dubbing standpoint since Derek Stephen Prince also plays Shino Aburame.

I think Angewomon's outfit and bust size may spark a bit of controversy if her figure were to be sold in the U.S.

Why would it? We've gotten plenty of fanservice-y figurines, and nobody bats an eye because they're only sold online and in collectible shops.

Also, doesn't LadyDevimon digivolve from (the male) Devimon?

He means if it was released as a regular toy meant for kids. American companies have a history of doing modifications like that, though to my knowledge Angewomon's design wasn't changed in the show itself.

Except for that one time when Kotobukiya's Liara T'Soni statuette elicited complaints for the statue's noticeable assets

causing the statue to go from this

to this in the final product
