Childhood Query

Grr… I’m cutting this post short ’cause I accidentally close my window and erase what I’ve written for 10 minutes. So cut the chase and straight to the point. Doraemon. Yes, I was writing about it because I felt so bang up by my deferment exam which will be held at another 12 more days and I decided to find some useless things to do in order to de-psyche me.

So what really happen to the blue fuzz ball? Apparently this was the most widespread, purportedly last episode of the manga but later on found that it was done by another author. The only last work from the actual author themselves was this anime back in 1998 ( don’t ask me why they left out part 1). And yeah, you need to read about the Wiki, not because the vids are in Chinese sub :

The animated version is completely similar but lengthened. Nobita finds a box the shape of Doraemon in his drawer. The next day, which happens to be April Fool’s day, Nobita is jeered at by Suneo and Jaian, the latter tricking him about Doraemon’s return. He happily runs home and asked his mother whether Doraemon came back and finds out the truth. Nobita couldn’t stand it and opens the box. Inside of it was a bottle of liquid. He hears Doraemon’s voice explaining that the potion is called Uso 800 (Lies 800) it is used to make all untruths the drinker says true. Nobita uses it to play a few tricks on Jaian and Suneo, like first taking cover then say that the weather sure is good, which becomes a lie and it started to rain heavily before he said it is raining heavily and the rain stopped. Jian and Suneo was scared away after a few tricks and when Nobita mentioned what is happening. Nobita was very happy at first but quickly loses interest in the absence of Doraemon. As he walks home, due to his earlier questioning if Doraemon returned or not, his mother asked him if he could find Doraemon, he unwittingly said, in great disappointment, the truth about Doraemon never coming back, just like what Doraemon told Nobita before his departure. Since the potion was still in effect, when he arrives his room he finds Doraemon there, and they have a happy reunion, but due to the effects of the potion, all his greets and joyful words have to be spoken in the opposite way like I am so unhappy that we can never be together again.. The extended ending from the animated series was eventually adapted to the first story of Book 7 in the manga series, with a few changes (i.e. Instead of hearing Doraemon’s voice explaining the use of the potion, he finds a card inside the box describing the use of the potion).

When the Fujiko Fujio duo broke up in 1987, the very idea of an official ending to the series was never discussed. Since Fujiko F. died in 1996 before any decisions were reached, any “endings” of Doraemon are fan fiction. However, it is apparent from many episodes and movies where Nobita travels to the future that in the end he does marry Shizuka, leads a happy life and separates with Doraemon, although Nobita and his friends fondly remember him

Well, no matter how it ends, we’ll always remember how it began. Now, where did I leave my magic door?

  1. i still like the ending, don’t know if it’s fan-fictioned, where Doraemon is actually Nobita’s imagination. Nobita is a kid who doesn’t like to mingle with others. Nobita doesn’t get to know Shizuka, Jaian or Sunoe.

    kinda sad, but realistic. Of course, the ending in the video is touching and merry!

  2. hey. just dropping by! =)

    gone are my doraemon days since secondary school started. =S
