Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the lovely anime and manga character Doraemon with a new batch of T-shirts for little ones and grown ups. The Doraemon assortment, section of Uniqlo’s UT line of graphic tees, will be out there for obtain in merchants and on the web beginning on July 13.
Doraemon is a robot cat from the 22nd century who travels back again in time to help a small boy named Nobita Nobi improve his future situations and these of his descendants. Like a cross among Meowth and Inspector Gadget, Doraemon has a pouch from which he generates futuristic devices that he uses to assist Nobita. Marketing photos from the Uniqlo collection are staged close to a pink doorway, a reference to Doraemon’s Wherever Door that can teleport Nobita and Doraemon anywhere they want to go.
Initially a manga developed by Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko (beneath the pen title Fujiko Fujio) Doraemon has long gone on to be tailored into quite a few anime collection, movies, and video clip games. The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Place even staged a Doraemon musical in 2008 called Doraemon the Musical: Nobita and the Animal World.
Uniqlo’s assortment of T-shirts characteristics images of Doraemon himself, as perfectly as of some of his gizmos. Several of the shirts are connected to Stand By Me Doraemon 2, a sequel to the 2014 movie Stand By Me Doraemon. Stand By Me Doraemon 2 was initially slated to be introduced on August 7, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its place, the film Doraemon: Nobita’s New Dinosaur, which was due out in March, will be produced on that day.
Adult shirts in Uniqlo’s UT line expense $14.90, although children designs expense $9.90. You can look at out the forthcoming Doraemon designs in the gallery down below.
