societyJapanese national animation, “Doraemon” starts broadcasting in this summer in the U.S. “Doraemon” are already been broadcasting in 35 countries in the world and just lines are translated into other languages. However some scenes are changed to broadcast “Doraemon” in the U.S. This is because obesity is big problem in the U.S, so some scenes which Doraemon eats a lot of dorayaki are cut. Also names of the characters and the tools which are come out from Doraemon’s pocket are changed like Nobita as Noby, Jyaian as Big G, Dekisugi-kun as Ace and Dokodemo-doa as Anywhere Door. I’m glad that Doraemon is watched in many countries and I hope American people like it.
