Finally, I might pick up this manga again because I lost interest (I bought 5 volumes of Doraemon translated into my local language and read them all)

About damn time indeed. I'm surprised it took em this long to get such a famous and well loved series to make it to the US. Glad it's finally getting some attention. Now lets hope they release it in original right to left format!
