I am not exaggerating when I said Doraemon is one of the most beloved anime character in history. Doraemon is a Japanese manga series created by Fujiko F. Fujio which later became an anime series and an Asian franchise. The series first appeared in December 1969 and since its debut, the stories have been selectively collected into 45 books (excluding featured stories) published from 1974 to 1996, which had a circulation of over 80 million in 1992. (My brother collected all the 45 books plus 22 "featured" stories...)
The series is about an intelligent robotic cat named Doraemon, who is sent back in time from the 22nd century by a young boy named Sewashi Nobi to improve the circumstances of his great grandfather, Nobita Nobi so that his descendants may enjoy a better future. In the original time-line, Nobita experienced nothing but misery and misfortune manifested in the form of poor marks and grades, physical disasters, and bullying throughout his life. This culminates in the burning down of a future business he set up which leaves his family line beset with financial problems. In order to alter history and better the Nobi family's fortunes, Sewashi sent him a robot called Doraemon.

After visiting the Doraemon exhibition, I met up with a friend and had dinner at Gyotaku (魚作) in Central. We also stopped by the newly opened A&F on the way and had our picture taken with one of the hot guys \(=^v^=)/. Dinner was delicious. As usual, the quality of sashimi is so much better in Hong Kong.
