    Definetly hope this season has a decent dub like data squad. I have a feeling the dub won’t be as joke heavy because a lot more visual slapstick was present in this one (and I warmly welcome it) though that won’t stop the director of the dub from adding more dialog changes. With anime being treated with more respect and the trailer mentioning the “dedicated fanbase” twice (along with their new facebook and twitter pages), I assume saban is aware of the fanbase’s degree to a point. Still excited regardless of what we get.

    New trailer suggests that DigiXros is now called “DigiFuse”

    I have more news about the dub according to Ben Diskin’s (voice of Shoutmon) twitter these changes have been made.

    Xros Loader is now Fusion Loader, Digi-Xros is now Digi-Fuse, and the one that confuses me a bit Xros Heart will be Fusion Fighters. Also the writer for Tamers and Frontier is writing for this series too.

    I noticed something strange when I saw the most recent trailer to Fusion, I’m not sure if this counts as censorship, just yet however. Since the series hasn’t even been broadcast yet.

    Anyways I noticed that X when they Digi-Xros is usually red and in the trailer it’s blue. I’m assuming there changing the color because people might think it resembles blood.

      Were there no occurrences of it ever being blue in the original?

      The X seems to change colours from blue in the intro and red when Shoutmon was fused both were on white backgrounds instead of black. That might mean each team has different colour.

    According to the withthewill forums, Ben Diskin anounced the official dub names for Zenjirou, Akari, and Kiriha.

    Zenjirou (Jeremy), Akari (Angie), and Kiriha (Christopher)

    Also he pointed out the star blade would be censored because of the word blade, and that the dub is trying to avoid the word fight.

      There was no violation, actually. Disney sold several of Saban’s old shows back to Saban Brands when they opted to cancel the shows. I don’t think Disney ever intended to dub Xros Wars, and they confirmed that Power Rangers: RPM was going to be the last iteration of the show. Saban Brands is now responsible for Digimon Fusion, and Power Rangers Samurai/Megaforce.

    From what I’ve also heard following one of the VA’s is that the show’s script is going strong (being of tamer’s quality). I think the star blade name change isn’t a censorship but more of a basic attack change. Fight might be being avoided because of the name “fusion figters” probably to avoid confusion. . The X has always been red and never blue (or any other color), though I think it’s just some sort of error in the fade the trailer gives. dorulumon’s name will be the same though. This was information just coming from one VA. We’ll believe it when we see it. Though I pray Saban will be able to find a way to censor Mervamon and Lilithmon in a not so irregular way (like the cheap digital paint savers got). Possible for Toei to re-animate those sequences?

    We have some new name changes! Lilithmon is now laylamon (which might be arabic for dark haired beauty) Reapermon is now Reapmon and Pickmons is now Pickmonz. (Because poor literacy is Digitastic) I also heard that Slashangemon who’s english name was Guardiangemon is now slushangemon thanks to toei! Because biosupinomon and biorotusmon worked so well! But that was months ago so I hope that was sorted out
