2nd Animation Division Excellence Award

Doraemon Nobita’s South Sea Advanture

Animated feature film

SHIBAYAMA Tsutomu (Director) [Japan]

Reason for Award

This work is done so well that it rightfully deserves recognition as the pinnacle of what feature-length children’s animation is all about. The producers continue to release a new “Doraemon” feature every year, but they have lost none of their quality, interest and appeal. These are works that give you the strength to live life as a human being, a testament to how well his successors have understood the ideals of the late creator.
