Attack on Titan's Yuuki Kaji Guest-Stars as Doraemon's Tanuki 'Brother'
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of the Doraemon television anime revealed on Wednesday that this Friday's episode will guest star Yuuki Kaji (Attack on Titan's Eren Jaeger, World Trigger's Osamu Mikumo) as a tanuki who mistakes Doraemon for a tanuki and calls him his brother. Doraemon helps the tanuki search for his lost sister.
This is the voice actor's first time voicing a role in the Doraemon anime.
The manga creator duo Fujiko Fujio (Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko) created Doraemon in 1969. In the story, the robotic cat was sent by a boy in the future to the present day to help the boy's hapless grandfather, Nobita. Doraemon, Nobita, and other children deal with everyday childhood issues, solve (and cause) problems with the gadgets in Doraemon's fourth-dimensional pocket, and embark on escapades through time and space. The television anime is frequently ranked among the top ten most-viewed anime in Japan.
