Trip in Japan Day 8 – Shirakawa Village, Takayama

Well, after a day's break of wandering around shops, it was back to touring the land of the rising sun. While I'm a big fan of Japanese games and Anime, I was also interested in Japan's culture thanks to all the TV programmes I grew up watching such as documentaries and travel programmes so I decided we should go visit a rural village while...


Trip in Japan Day 3 – Ghibli Museum, Fujiko Fujio "Doraemon" Museum

Ah yes, Ghibii Museum! This place is so busy you'll have to book 3 months in advance if you want a chance of getting in. Especially during the holiday seasons. It was either a JR train to Mitaka Station or a Keio train to Kichijoji. We chose Keio even though we had a JR Pass because it was faster by a 5 minutes or so. I read the route from Mitaka...


Doraemon 2009, New Space Pioneer Adventure Review

The rental DVD is out for this year's Doraemon movie, "The New Record of Nobita Spaceblazer" as it seems to be officially known and someone was kind enough to dump it onto the web. I've only watched half of the original 1981 movie because the VCD copy I have is missing the second disc so I won't be able to make a comparison but, it seems they...


多啦A夢 2010 大雄的人魚大海戰

Celebrating Doraemon's 30th anniversary this year is another annual feature length animation "Nobita no Ningyo Taikaisen". Taking a break from the re-makes we see Doraemon, Nobita and friends meeting an underwater race that as usual, starts off another adventure that reminds us to take good care of nature. The Japanese DVD is out...


Doraemon 2008 - Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant

Yes, I still like watching Doraemon. Laugh all you want =P Almost forgot about this Nobita and the Legend of the Green Giant from 2008 but, better late than never. This is one of the better new Doraemon movies I've seen full of comedy and less repetitive talking animals material. I'm liking the modern animation style, artwork and the...


Doraemon Movie 2009, The New Records of Nobita

The Doraemon movie remakes continue after this year's "Green Giant" and they don't seem to be doing it in any particular order... For 2009, a remake of the 1981 "The Records of Nobita, Space Blazer" is due which, is the movie that I only watched half of I think because the second VCD was missing from the copy we had. So, I won't be able to...


Doraemon: The Seven Mages 2007, What Have They Done to the Movie?

This year's annual Doraemon movie entitled "Nobita's New Great Adventure into the Underworld" (AKA "The Seven Mages" or "Shin Makai Daibouken"), is another remake just like last year's one. Premièred in cinemas back in March, this time it's a remake of the 1984 movie which had a similar name. Just like the first movie, the original...


Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur 2006 Remake Thoughts

Just found time to watch it tonight after getting it from the usual site where I get my Anime RAWs from. This is a remake of the 1980 animation which was the very first Doraemon theatrical feature. I don't know how the original movie's story starts off because my VHS video copy has a good chunk of the beginning cut off. Probably half an hour...
