[RELEASE] Digimon Xros Wars II – 12 (66) H264 & XViD
The twelfth episode of Digimon Xros Wars: The Boy Hunters Who Leap Through Time!
A short explanation on this episode:
• Digimen means “Digi-noodles” and a pun on Digimon.
• Real ramen is made from scratch, from everything in the soup to the noodles. Real ramen is defined by the kind of noodles it has (there are different varieties based on what sort of flour it’s made from, and the chewiness of the noodle) and the soup it’s in. Instant ramen is not real ramen.
Noodles are made by pounding the noodle dough until it reaches a certain thickness/hardiness, before they are cut into equal lengths. The soup is made using dashi (fish soup stock) as the base. Dashi is just a fancy word for the water that’s strained out after it’s been boiled with a number of ingredients. In this episode, the dashi was made with dried bonito flakes (katsuobushi), smoked mackerel (sababushi), dried sardines (niboshi), kelp (kombu), dried shrimp (hoshiebi), scallops (kaibashira), and the addition of hoshi-shiitake dashi (the water that dried shiitake mushroom is soaked in overnight).
