This cover is the latest addition to the Hobonichi Techo’s Japan Manga Classics series. It features the popular character Dorami-chan from Doraemon, the classic series from celebrated manga artist Fujiko F. Fujio.
Art director Idea Oshima designed this lovely cover to reflect all the cuteness of Dorami-chan herself, starting with the expression on her face in the silkscreen print at the center. Special attention was paid to the way Dorami-chan was printed differently from the rest of the cover, giving it a special texture. Dorami-chan’s pockets inspired the yellow-and-red plaid pattern.
The two round, black strings of the bookmarks have small red and white flowers as charms, modeled after Dorami-chan’s tail.
The cover interior is a pale cream color.
While Dorami-chan is the star of this cover, Doraemon and Nobita-kun do make little cameos! Inside the cover is “Nobiemon,” who appears in Volume 17 of Doraemon from the Tentomushi Comics series.
This cover includes a sticker of Doraemon lying down.
It’s a scene from Volume 4 of the Tentomushi Comics series, where Dorami-chan made her first appearance. Dorami-chan showed up just as Nobita was worried about Doraemon, who had stopped moving, explaining that he was just switched off. “Robots have to rest their machines once in a while. Oh, me? I’m Dorami, Doraemon’s little sister. I’ll take care of you while my brother recharges.”
It’s a memorable scene from the comic, and with the sticker you can immortalize it anywhere you’d like.
Dorami-chan is a precocious robot who loves melon bread and is always ready to trade places with Doraemon and save the day when Nobita-kun is in trouble. All that, plus her charming eyes, show through in this energetic cover, which brings together everything that makes people love Dorami-chan.
It’s comforting to have Dorami-chan by your side, so this techo cover is just the ticket for enjoying yourself every day.
