#61 - Doraemon Postcard


I really like this postcard, because I'm Doraemon fans and this is my first Doraemon postcard. The shape is very unique. That's another reason why I like this card. So, if people asked to me, did I have a favorite postcard. The answer is да (yes)! This card arrive long time ago from Chao Naii in Taiwan. Thank you, Chao! :)

And, I just googling to learn more about Doraemon. Here is the result : 

DORAEMON is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Fujiko Fujio, which later became an animeseries and an Asian franchise. The series is about a robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a pre-teen boy called Nobi Nobita.

The series first appeared in December 1969, when it was published simultaneously in six different magazines. A total of 1,344 stories were created in the original series, which are published by Shogakukan under the Tentōmushi manga brand, extending to forty-five volumes. The volumes are collected in the Takaoka Central Library in Toyama, Japan, where Fujiko Fujio was born. Turner Broadcasting System bought the rights to the Doraemon anime series in the mid-1980s for a US English-language release, but canceled it without explanation before broadcasting any episodes. In July 2013 it was announced that the manga would be released digitally in English via the Amazon Kindle e-book service. It is one of the best-selling manga in the world, having sold over 100 million copies.

Most of Doraemon episodes are comedies with lessons regarding values such as honesty, perseverance, courage, and respect. Various environmental issues are often visited, including homeless animals, global warming, endangered species, deforestation, and pollution. Miscellaneous educational topics such as dinosaurs, the flat Earth theory, wormhole traveling, Gulliver's Travels, and the history of Japan are often covered.

The name "Doraemon" can be translated roughly to "stray." Unusually, the name "Doraemon" is written in a mixture of two Japanese scripts: Katakana and Hiragana. "Dora" derives from "dora neko" (brazen or stray cat), and is a corruption of nora (stray). "Emon" is a component of male given names like Goemon, though no longer as popular as in the past. "Dora" is not derived from dora , meaning gong, but due to the homophony, the series puns on this, with Doraemon loving dorayaki.
