A robot-type cat known as Doraemon was sent back to the past by Sewashi Nobi to help a lazy boy named Nobita Nobi. With Doraemon's gadgets, Nobita uses it for several mischiefs and sometimes take revenge on his bully, Chaien, Takeshi Goda, but things get a little out of control. Both of them and their friends went to adventures using the future gadgets. Sometimes Doraemon misplace his necessary gadgets which leads them into a bigger problem, but in the end, things turn out well.
Johnny Yong Bosch (Noby (English)) and Kaiji Tang (Gian (English)) would later work together in Kill La Kill (2013). See more »
The beanie hat that Doraemon and Nobita often wear on their heads or rear end though out the TV show is too small to be practical to fly, the propeller on their beanie hat needs to be bigger in order to lift heavy mass like Nobita off the ground. Also, the hat would need to have a safety harness that wraps around under their shoulders to prevent the hat from flying off their heads. See more »
The USA version of Doraemon has made notable censorship changes in the English dub version of Doraemon such as removing black face, scenes with nudity, bathroom references, or some scenes being cut out for time restraints. See more »
Doraemon is a series which has been in japan since like the 60's or 70's and has many failed attempts to localise in the west. I have watched the English dub by Bang Zoom Entertainment and the hindi dub in india.
I will be reviewing the dub by Bang Zoom Entertainment hence why I will be using their localised names instead of their japanese ones
The anime is about a robot cat from the future that has came to take care of Noby so he makes better decisions in future as his future is bad and he is here to fix it. In each episode Noby demands something, Doraemon gives him a interesting gadget which he later gets himself into trouble with, then Doraemon needs to save. Noby also goes on various fun adventures with his 3 friends the rich square head Sneech, big bully Big G and the nice and adorable Sue.
Even there are changes due to audience and culture adaptation with a few edits of course. The dub is pretty good. The voice actors including Mona Marshall, Johnny Yong Bosch, Cassandra Lee Morris, Spike Spencer, Kaiji Tang, Keith Silverstein, Brian Beacock and everyone else fit their roles perfect.
My overall verdict the dub might not be perfect but vocally it's pretty and i honestly, hope it continues someday.
