Go Spotting: Doraemon

Saturday July 13, 2013

Doraemon is seen studying go in an episode of the popular anime.   The series is about a robotic cat who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a fifth grade boy, Nobita (seen in the background at right).  Doraemon debuted in 1969, and became one of the longest running anime in Japan, and was also a huge hit in China.  It is regarded as a Japanese cultural icon, and generations of kids have been gently influenced by the charming cat and his wise lessons.  Image from, thanks to Taylor Litteral for the suggestion.
