Taro Aso + Dmitry Medvedev = New Joint Doraemon Anime
The Jiji Press news source reports that Japanese Prime Minister Tarō Asō and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will discuss a joint anime production starring the Japanese manga character Doraemon and the Russian folklore creature “Dorafei” on Saturday.
I was wondering who that Dorafei was. A quick search revealed that it was none other than Russian president Dmitry Medvedev’s cat… Since when president’s cats are folklore creatures?
Дорофей from Ancient Greek Δωροθέος (Dōrotheos), “‘God’s gift’”).
