Doraemon, Japan’s favourite robotic cat, is having his birthday celebration today, 3rd
September 2012, for a birthday that will not occur for another hundred years.

In the famous manga, originally published in 1969, Doraemon was sent back in time from the 22nd century, to assist in the life of fifth grader Nobita Nobi. He is sent on this mission by Sewashi Nobi, Nobita’s great grandson, so that the misery and misfortune suffered by Nobita in the past is avoided, and therefore, changes the circumstances of Sewashi’s future. Now, Doraemon – created by manga duo Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko – is getting a birthday celebration unheard of ever before!

In commemoration, 100 variation models of Doraemon were put on display in Hong Kong.
