Digimon Adventure
Nerima-ku Hikarigaoka, Tokyo

Digimon Adventure

It was August 1st. Taichi Yagami and six other elementary kids were enjoying a summer camp. Then, all of a sudden, a snowstorm hit them in midsummer, and an aurora, something impossible to see in Japan, appeared.  Out of a slit in the aurora came an unidentified light, which took the seven into an unknown world called the “Digital World.”  There, they met with a strange-shaped monster known as “Digimon” (Digital Monster), and ---. This is a big hit animation of adventures in two worlds, real and digital, interacting with each other.
