The highly popular manga Doraemon is coming back to print with a new volume of Doraemon+. This volume will be released in December after a long gap of 9 years to celebrate several anniversaries related to the robotic cat character. The last version was released back in 2014.

Doraemon is considered one of the best mangas in Japan and other parts of the world. The story of the manga revolves around Nobita Nobi, a ten-year-old schoolboy who’s kind-hearted but also weak, lazy and not very good at school.
However, to help Nobita, his future grandchild sends him a robotic cat called Doraemon from the future (22nd century) so he can live a better life. With his incredible gadgets and four-dimensional pouch, Doraemon helps Nobita whenever he struggles with any problem.
Doraemon manga was first serialized back in December 1969. It also has anime adaptations and over 40 animated movies.
Doraemon has also been an inspiration to many famous mangakas, including Eiichiro Oda of One Piece and Masashi Kishimoto of Naruto.
