Doraemon is an anime and manga written and illustrated by Fujiko F. Fujio, it was first published in December 1969 in Japan. The Doraemon franchise first appeared in Vietnam in 1992 when the Doraemon manga was published for the first time.



The manga was first published without permissions from the originally published by Kim Đồng Publishing House on December 11, 1992.[1] It was an immediate success, four Doraemon books (each containing 108 pages) had sold 40,000 copies.[2] In 1996, Kim Dong Publisher House was visited by Shogakukan and paid royalties for their publishing of the manga between 1992 and 1996.[1] The money went to the Doraemon Scholarship Fund,[1] a scholarship fund for poor students in Vietnam and later, it was given the Culture Fighter Award. As of 2006, the manga had sold at least 40 to 50 million copies, a record in the comic market in Vietnam.[3]

Between 1992 and 2009, the character's names in the manga were changed, to 'make it easier for readers to read and remember them'. Doraemon was Mèo Ú (Fat Cat), Nôbita hậu đậu, Xê-kô mỏ nhọn and Chaien lồi rốn. Because the old translating was not very accurate and omitted many details, Kim Dong Publishing House published a new version of the manga by the name Doraemon which was translated accurately. It was released on May 29, 2010.[4]

In the 1993 Book Publishing Conference, the Ministry of Culture reported that "the publishing of Doraemon is a shocking event for cleaning up the culture taste of children, both youth and adults."[1] Doraemon also appeared in many cultural events[14][15], the Doraemon character is also the Japan Culture Ambassador to Vietnam. Fujiko F.Fujio was awarded the Culture Fighter Award by the Ministry of Culture in 1996.

Doraemon Scholarship Fund[edit]

The Doraemon Scholarship Fund was founded in 1996 by Nguyễn Thắng Vu and Fujiko F.Fujio with the fund of 1 billion VND, included the royalties of publishing the manga between 1992 - 1996 and some profits from the manga's release. The fund was later increased by the profits of publishing the manga and totaled over 4 billion VND as of 2010. The fund was provided over 6,000 scholarships to poor students in Vietnam.[4] Nguyễn Thắng Vu also donated 1 billion VND to the fund before his death on October 14, 2010.[16] The Doraemon Scholarship Fund was considered as one of the first non-governmental education and culture fund in Vietnam.[17]


In early 2011, parodies of Doraemon began to flourish within the Vietnamese online community.[18] They are pages taken from the original manga, with the dialogues changed for humor. The content of these stories revolve around contemporary social issues under the witty view of the youth. Several fan clubs of this genre have been established on forums and social networks, some even organizes their own competition. At the same time, many parodies music videos of Doraemon manga also appeared and were collectively called Doraemon Music Video.[19]

On June 22, 2014, the 5050 Group released the "Doraemon Việt Nam" clip on YouTube and attracted about 100 million views.[20]

In late May 2015, Acecook Vietnam released a new brand of Doraemon Noodles (Mì Doraemon) on the Vietnamese market, together with several promoting events targeting children.[21] The food company is also the main sponsor for the third and fourth season of the Doraemon animation series on HTV3.

A manga titled Dế Rô Bốt - Nhân tài ảo thuật was published by Phan Thị on February 20, 2014. After it was published, the manga was received many negative reactions and reviews as it took the characters and gadgets from Doraemon and edited them.[22] Later, it was announced that the writers were copied the Doraemon manga but based on Innovation principle.[23]
