[China] criticism blows out on Chinese twitter against US version Doraemon = “destroying my memories” “what’s yours is mine” [America]

12 May 2014, Japanese animation “Doraemon” which will be broadcasted in the United States of America draws attentions of not only Japanese but Chinese too.
In the “US version Doraemon” which will be broadcasted on a Disney children’s channel, local changes are made such as Doraemon’s favorite will not be Dorayaki but instead a pizza, foods on the table to American style, chopsticks to forks, stone-roasted sweet potato stand to a popcorn truck and so on. And words on signs will be changed to English from Japanese. Here are the comments from Chinese internet users.

“Pizza…”

“Weird”

“They’re gonna eat rice bowls with forks?”

“Why do they have to change the contents to Western style?”

“So they want to neglect Japanese culture?”

“Japanese animation has great influence. Maybe that was their concern”

“wasn’t one of the purpose to broadcast Doraemon was to understand Japanese life? They changed it so much it’s pointless”

“Japanese animation is Japanese animation. Why localize?”

“You don’t have to change it. But you know, they’re Americans”

“what’s yours is mine, what’s mine is mine.” (WAQWAQ: Gian quote)

“I’d prefer the original.”

“If the Chinese Doraemon ate jiaozi or lo poh beng, there will be complaints.”

“Scenery is Japan but the signs are English. That makes it so weird?”

“Can’t stand it. They’re destroying my childhood memory.”

“Thought this was a pro Chinese behavior. Guess not.”

    The American Doraemon loves pizza.

  2. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    Gian is Captain America

  3. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    You have to adjust the characters’ black, white, brown, yellow ratio to American population ratio.

  4. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    Doraemon hates mice. Disney has nothing for that?

  5. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    Maybe it’s counter cultural invasion stuff but this sketchy job is just strange. And drop the pizza. Mini Dora inside Doraemon’s pouch will be lard-smeared and gooey. Poor Mini Dora.

    Americans themselves are pretty confused.

    My image is Gian plays football, Shizuka chan is a cheer leader and Nobita gets locked up in a locker.

    USA is a free country that don’t accept other cultures.

    Well at least they are paying for it. Better than those countries making knockoffs.

    “Kyojin no Hoshi” India version was awful no?

  11. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    In the original piece, remember Nobita being good at guns, quick draw?
    That’ll make him an American star.

  12. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    
Eventually it’ll be a hero story, Nobita catching bad guys with his pistol. Doraemon supports him.

  13. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    And Nobita is a billionaire, highly educated, has strong sense of justice, has a bit of dark side, you know that’s the fashion these days

  14. rapidly no name, amazingly no name @WAQWAQ

    Lead character in American Doraemon is Gian.
    It’s an entertainment laughing at Nobita being bullied.
