Doraemon Tool Design Contest Receives Over 40,000 Entries

Two months ago Shogakukan, Yahoo! Japan, and TV Asahi announced the "Doraemon Magic Project," the largest Doraemon Tool Design Contest ever. In the past two months, Shogakukan received 26,611 letters, TV Asahi received 11,116 letters, and Yahoo! Japan received 3,382 letters, which amounts to a total of 41,109 letters. Judges were surprised by the number of entries. Also worth noting is that many people chose tools that cure human illnesses.
