I love Doraemon!

Hahaha! That look on your face when you saw the big Doraemon outside the shop in Kawagoe and tourist-posed with it. My wife and me were cracking up!

It's not just in Japan. Doraemon is SERIOUS BUSINESS here.

Every woman, man and child had somehow heard of Doraemon. And that was the end of the Name the Game game.

Kampai!!

THE END

Ugh... I just remembered that an old mate used to hang out his washing over a gate outside his apartment and one day his face lit up with realization and he said to me:

"Do you know what this is?!"
"What?"
"It's a DRY-MON!"

(Gate is "mon" in Japanese)

I gotta admit I laughed a lot more than I should have...

Actually in Japanese DRY-MON is pronounced DO-RA-I-MO-N, which is only one character different from the original name, and is a VERY common parody of the subject...

...subject... anyway, back to subject! Zach, is Cl...'s answer correct?

Kampai!!

I know what this means even though I have never learnt Japanese, thanks to watching Terrace House. You all should too!

(I also recognised Doraemon even though I didn't know its name or anything else about it.)

Looks like Zach hasn't been on in a couple of days...

What is the Terrace House? I only know like 20 Japanese words.

Nani is said a lot, because its basically "what", ergo people going "What?!!"

Uhm... I've seen Doraemon cartoons before... and I'm not sure they were in Japanese. My memory says spanish... and a quick YT search proves that I'm not wrong:


sorry to burst your bubble, and also the fact that this is a late reply, but youre wrong. thats a dub, not the original japanese audio. ive researched every detail about the series for 3 years.

Makes sense, it says "in Spanish" which mean they felt the need to put that because it's not normally in that language.

Anyway, whose go is it??

what bubble??? 8-0
I know the original is Japanese and that's a dub... (roll) Unless you did not read my post I said that I've seen it in other languages other than Japanese. Meaning that is has aired not only in Japan!

Anyway... are we going to continue talking about Doreamon or will someone post the next game to guess? (nod)

Super Zaxxon?

My suspicion is that an accident, probably caused by a lightning storm and a mad professor, resulted in Amayirot's brain becoming inextricably linked to the databases behind MobyGames and LemonAmiga.

I remember a game like Zaxxon called Space Raid, but I think their graphics sucked.
