Doraemon started as a manga series written by Fujiko F. Fujio. The manga has a long history, with its serial publication starting in 1969. It was massively produced in many manga magazines for young children, and continued until the author passed away in 1996. The broadcast of the anime series continues today, even after the launch of the TV series and the death of its author. A new film by Doraemon has also been released every year since 1979. It’s no exaggeration to say that for many Japanese children, Doraemon is the first anime series that they watch.

Several issues related to the environment appear in the stories, such as endangered species, deforestation, and pollution.
