In the suburbs of Tokyo sometime ago, there lived a clumsy boy about 10 years old. There appeared in front of him a boy named Sewashi, Nobita’s descendant of four generations later from the 22ndcentury,and Doraemon, a 22ndcentury cat-type caretaker robot who helps people with its secret gadgets. Sewashi claims that his family is suffering from the debts Nobita made even to his generation, so in order to change this disastrous future, he brought along Doraemon as Nobita’s caretaker to bring happiness to his future, although Doraemon is not happy about this. And so Sewashi installed an accomplishment program into Doraemon forcing him to take care of Nobita. Unless he makes Nobita happy, Doraemon can no longer go back to the 22ndcentury. This is how the life of Doraemon and Nobita begins. Will Doraemon succeed this mission and return to the 22ndcentury? 

Watched Stand By Me Doraemon. Personally, I felt that the show was simple and classic on its own. It was decent though its plot could have been more refined. Initially, the story was pretty interesting with its light-hearted and fun-loving plot. However, it got rather dull watching on as there wasn't much surprise element injected. 

It turn out rather predictable though I do agree that certain scenes were touching. It also educated viewers to be independent and not always to rely on others. Sometimes, you just need a little faith to trust and believe in yourself.

A film that is more suitable for kids and Doraemon lovers.
