The first Doraemon movie to be released in U.S. in December this year titled “Doraemon: Nobita and a Green-Giant Legend”! It is also the 28th Doraemon's feature film that is released annually in Japan since 1980's. Exceptional animation style and quality.

Hopefully, Doremon might FINALLY get a little street cred amoung U.S. otaku.

I watched one Doraemon movie while I was in Japan, and it was really boring. It completely lacked the cleverness and humor from the comics. Plus they showed Shizuka naked in a bathtub and that felt very wrong. I wouldn't be surprised if there were better Doraemon movies and I just saw one of the bad ones. Hopefully this one is good.

I think Doraemon would have a tough time finding relevance in the United States. It's culturally different enough to be alienating to children, and it lacks many of the elements that anime fans in America seek out. I sure did like the comics, though.

Imma just repeat what I said earlier, and ask why the hell you've been necroposting so much.
