There have been many reincarnations of Digimon in anime over the years: Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure 02, Digimon Tamers, Digimon Frontier, Digimon Savers, Digimon Xros Wars and more recently the Digimon Adventure Tri movies. Now a new anime series, as well as games, are set to take over the world in October.

Hiding inside these apps are AI lifeforms called ‘app monsters’ or ‘appmon’ for short, all with the ability to think and act.

Directing the anime is Gou Koga (One Piece Episode of Sabo), and the script supervisor is Yoichi Kato (Monster Strike). Character design is done by Kenichi Ohnui (Gundam Build Fighters).

Japanese Potato Salad

One of the things we all love with a barbecue (or Braai) is Potato Salad. There are various ways to prepare potato salad and every household has its secret recipe. We are lucky enough to see a Japanese Potato Salad recipe today.

The salad is extremely easy to make and you only need the following ingredients: 3 small potatoes, 1 cucumber, 3-4 slices ham, 2 eggs, 3-6 tbsp mayonnaise (your preference but in the video they use Japanese mayonnaise), 1 tsp vinegar, salt, and pepper.
