Doraemon is a robot from the future sent back in time by Nobita's great-great-grandson to help Nobita have a decent, happy, productive life and also to help him avoid making too many mistakes that can cause the life of his descendents too difficult in the future. Doraemon arrives during Nobi's childhood and that's where most of the stories take place.

This is a character with a fundamental importance to manga and anime in many ways. I don't think anyone here at Tohno cares about Dora (yet!) but hopefully I can make it sound interesting enough to make you feel like checking it out once in a while. The show has such a long history that it can be used to understand the change in sensibility and taste in the industry, both in terms of plot content as well as the aesthetic sense, so even if you don't really care about the character, it can be interesting in a historical manner.

The current show began airing in 2005 and it has 700+ episodes at this time. I'll keep the thread active (because it's a forever airing show) by talking about aspects of the characters and the world they live in along with nice pics like I've been doing in the screencap thread. I don't take the making of a new thread lightly but I believe this is important enough it deserves one.

I feel like Doraemon was supposed to be a sort of guardian and tutor but due to his own personality, ended up becoming Nobita's friend instead. He is treated like a second son by the parents and is pretty much seen as a peer amongst the children in the neighborhood.

Despite having a mission to accomplish, his life is actually that of a quiet retiree with mostly childlike tastes and interests. Most of his days are spent in a very quiet, modest manner.

Doraemon was huge in my country. Only years later I noticed it wasn't as well known in the US and other countries, kinda like Shin-Chan.
It's a show I could still enjoy today because of how miserable actually are the characters.
Nobita is a piece of shit, not only he's weak but he's not a good kid either, everytime he gets some power he abuses it, then there's the rich kid which also is another piece of shit, the brute without redeeming qualities, even Shizuka shows low moments... They are somehow realistic and that makes it great comedy.

There are dark moments in Doraemon and the relationship between Suneo, Nobita and Takeshi is that of a rivarly. They're pretty much always trying to outdo each other. I think that's why this is not a 'comfy' show even though it has many aspects of that. But you're right, they can be very petty and the show doesn't shy away from showing how relationships between children have a definite element of cruelty. Ultimately though they're actually friends and when it comes down to it (as in they'll do everything to help each other out when shit hits the fan.)

You posted an episode of the 1979 show featuring the lucky gun gadget which I plan to talk about rather extensively since it's one of those things that modern audiences would never accept nowadays for a kid's show. In fact this is one of the gadgets that never appeared again since 79.

Doraemon's life is kinda that of housebound child. He'll usually be reading manga, eating or drinking while reading manga, sleeping and sometimes he'll be helping around the house, but that's rather uncommon.

What are Doraemon's views on lasagna? Does he like Mondays?

Doraemon does have a favorite dish, it's a confection called dorayaki. It's basically sweetened azuki beans paste sandwiched between two round pieces of cake. Dorayaki is a major element in the manga and the anime since it's one of things you can actually bribe Doraemon with or something he can get furious about if it's stolen from him for any reason. I don't remember any story where he displays any sentiments towards any particular day of the week, though it's easy to infer his weekdays are actually less busy because Nobita will be at school then. I don't remember any episode or chapter where lasagna is involved.
