If you are into Anime, then you have NO REASON not knowing this ultimate Anime classic - Doraemon. In case you belong to this extreme minority, the Anime is about a kid and his friend Doraemon, a robot-cat that came from the future. What is special about this robot-cat is that he is afraid of mice, loves Japanese red bean buns, and most importantly, has a "bottomless" inventory bag from which Doraemon can pull out nifty extraordinary items to use. This Anime is very old (back at the 70's) but it still remains a classic to alot of people from all ages, particularily girls (hint hint).
What this game is is just simply a monopoly game based on the Doraemon Anime. There is no plot, maybe except that the characters from the Anime compete each other to win. Like monopoly, you buy land and build on it and people pay you rent if they step on your property. What's different from other monopoly-based games is that instead of using cash, Japanese red bean buns are used as currency in the world of Doraemon. In addition, you can use a wide variety of Doraemon items (most of them have appeared in the Anime at least once) to your advantage. You also have a series of game fields to choose from, and all of these environments appear in the Anime as well. Throughout the course of the game, you will be able to play some or all of the 8 mini-games where at the same time the players compete with each other to win that mini-game.
Up to 4 players can play this game, and you can choose any of the 6 Doraemon characters (and one secret character) to play with. What is interesting about this is that each character has their own characteristics, and therefore strengths and weakness. Such characteristics are of course based on the famous Anime. For example, the strength of Doraemon is that at the start of the game he has half of the items in stock already (because he has a "built-in" inventory bag in his belly), but because he loves to eat buns, his weakness is for each step he takes, he eats some buns (and therefore lose some money). Personally, I (and of course many other people) find this setup very very interesting.
