A futuristic cat with a 4D-pouch. If Doraemon(ドラえもん) didn’t look so scary, I’d like to have his kind hanging out with me. He is a national treasure to most Japanese, not least because like Sazae-san(サザエさん), he’s lasted so many years in the turbulent world of animation. For the fans therefore, this news that there’s an iPhone app (or 16) is good news. It’s actually 5 entertainment apps (primarily for kids and otaku adults) and 11 comic episodes. They’re all free, and has a limited download time – until 10th May. With an added perk actually: if you download all 16, you can have the effect of a Doraemon page on your iPhone, as seen in top left screenshot.
