Hong Kong is currently hosting the 100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon exhibition. Oppsss...why I'm talking about Doraemon here? Anyway, just have break in this busy day, lets see some of the fact of Doraemon.
Doraemon is one of Japan's most popular manga and anime characters and his appeal extends across Asia. He first appeared in 1969 and the robot cat from the future has starred in numerous TV series and movies ever since.
He is such an icon that he was appointed Japan's cultural ambassador for anime in 2008.
Being from the future, Doraemon's date of birth is 3 September 2112, meaning 2012 marks the start of the 100 year countdown to his birthday.
To celebrate the pre-anniversary, this summer from August 14 to September 16, Harbour City in Hong Kong will be hosting the 100 Years Before the Birth of Doraemon exhibition.
In order to mark the occasion of Doraemon’s birthday (albeit 100 years early), Harbour City will showcase 100 unique Doraemon figures along with 100 different pieces from his well-known repertoire of secret gadgets, all displayed outside Harbour City’s Ocean Terminal.
Oh.... 100 unique Doraemon figures, if you are unable to travel to Hong Kong in that exhibition period, sure you want to have a look on the figures, here is the video you may watch all the 100 Doraemon figures at once.
