Doraemon (ドラえもん, Doraemon) is the most recent anime TV series based on Fujiko F. Fujio's manga of the same name. Produced by Shin-Ei Animation and Asatsu-DK, it began airing on TV Asahi on April 15, 2005. It also airs in over 50 countries worldwide.

This Doraemon anime series is sometimes referred to in Asia as the Mizuta Edition (水田版), after Wasabi Mizuta, the voice actress who voiced Doraemon in this series.[2]

The anime is licensed by Viz Media for broadcast rights only. An English dub produced by Bang Zoom! Entertainment aired on Disney XD in the United States as Doraemon: Gadget Cat From the Future from July 7, 2014 until May 12, 2017.[3][4] A second season of the English dub premiered on Disney XD on June 15, 2015[5] and ended on September 1 of the same year.

TV Asahi currently holds distribution and licensing rights to Doraemon.

Doraemon is also streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. They also noted the show's success in Spain, Portugal and the rest of Europe.
