FILM: Doraemon: Stand by Me (ドラえもん)

New Japanese movies I want to see in 2014:
Doraemon: Stand by Me (ドラえもん)
   Why I want 2 C it: I love the style of animation. The animators have found the perfect balance between the 2D cartoon & 3D CG. While I've never been a fan of Doraemon, this looks so interesting as they're marketing it as a tear-jerker. Only in Japan would you get a big budget 3D animation about loss & letting go.

   I'm not sure what they will do if this is a huge hit as this seems to be the end of the Doraemon series.

Stangely, this is  the last in the Doraemon series and will focus on Doraemon leaving and how Nobita deals with the loss.
