WTF WED! DORAEMON 2020: THE WIZARD HORSE AND THE CUTSIE-POOPS!
Doraemon is probably the most beloved characters in the history of manga and his credentials have allowed him to one up Pokémon, the franchise that just became the mascots for Japan's national soccer team, by becoming the ambassador for Tokyo's 2020 Summer Olympics bid. The funny thing about Tokyo getting the 2020 Olympics is that the 1988 anime film, Akira, predicted that they would host the Olympics...in Neo-Tokyo and, int he film, the climax takes place at the stadium. This all leads up to a hilarious and weird mash-up of two very different subjects.
When equestrian magic meets human technology, apparently hijinks ensue in the newest cartoon from the fellas who brought you Charlie the Unicorn.
Who is driving? Oh my god, Bear is driving?! How can that be?!
