Doraemon is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Fujiko F. Fujio. The story revolves around an earless robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a boy named Nobita Nobi.
Doraemon, a cat robot from the 22nd century, is sent to take care of Nobita Nobi by Sewashi Nobi, Nobita's future grandson, so that his descendants can get a better life. At the present, Nobita is a man who always fails in class, and whose company goes bankrupt, causing his family and sons to face financial difficulties.
Most stories of Doraemon revolve the young Nobita Nobi, who receives poor grades and is frequently bullied by his two classmates, Takeshi Goda (nicknamed "Gian") and Suneo Honekawa (Gian's sidekick). Doraemon has a four-dimensional pouch in which he stores unexpected gadgets he uses to aid Nobita Nobi. Doraemon's gadgets help Nobita overcome the troubles, and they end up developing a relationship with each other.
Nobita's closest friend and love interest is Shizuka Minamoto, who eventually becomes his wife in the future.[a] Gian and Suneo often bully Nobita, but are also shown as Nobita's friends in certain episodes, and especially in the movies. A typical story consists of Nobita taking a gadget from Doraemon for his needs eventually making problems worse than they initially were.
