Doraemon: Nobita and the Legend of the Sun King – anime review

Nobita and the Leged of the Sun King was made after Fujiko F. Fujio passed away. This anime was the 21th installment of Doraemon movies. It clearly tried to stay true to its predecessors and it did quite well. Nevertheless, the movie stumbled because it was more about the Sun King than Nobita or Doraemon. Continue reading

Doraemon: Nobita and the New Steel Troops -Angel Wings- anime review

What’s with the excessively long name? All it does was to remind me that this is another remake (the fourth, to be exact) from this long running series of Doraemon movies.

The origin of me as a sci-fi fanatic (part 1)

Just in case you don’t know, I am a long time, loyal sci-fi fan. I watch sci-fi anime regularly, I am fascinated by sci-fi movies even the bad ones. I read sci-fi novels until I fall asleep and I dream of another, distant world. During the last weekend, I dug through my old anime collection and came upon an old disc for Doraemon: Nobita and the Robot Army. I remember I first watched it when I was only five or six years old. I recall I loved it a lot but never thought about the reason behind my passion, not to mention how influential to my later life this movie has become. Continue reading
