Doraemon is cat shaped robot from the future traveling all the way back to the 20th century in order to help Nobi Nobita, a lazy kid with nothing really going for him. Nobi is bad at sports, his grades are terrible, he can't even win a match of rock-paper-scissors. Doraemon has a hard task ahead of him but he is well prepared with a huge arsenal of the most inventive and funny gadgets available. The problem is he's not the most competent robot cat helper out there either and the pair gets in constant trouble because of it. Thus begins one of the most interesting friendships ever to appear in a manga series.


Doraemon has been published in English by Shogakukan Asia since August 27, 2014 and digitally by Shogakukan since Nov 22, 2013.

This is the first manga i've ever read.
I was 5 years old that time.
This manga makes my childhood amazing.
This is great manga for kids.
The story is easy to understand.
The creativity of this manga is good to kids.
The art is still good even at this era, this kind of manga don't need amazing art or great art detail.
Because what kids need is an inspiring story, creative story and full of imagination.
But don't think this is just for kids, everybody can read this, everybody can enjoy this.

Read then re-read in my native language countless of times as a child and now reading it in English as well just brings back all the nostalgia. Even as an adult, every single chapter remains fresh and hilarious in a heartwarming way. I highly recommend this series for all children and adults. It was truly the first manga that taught me creativity. Each problem that Doraemon faced and solved with his ingenious "futuristic" tools excited and helped develop my childhood curiosity and love for learning. Beyond scientific exposure, Doraemon taught me empathy, how to be a great friend to others and how to uphold my read more
