We are restarting the manga article and saving bits such as this, which I archive here for any future use:
The time-travelling mechanical cat Doraemon (ドラえもん) has been thrilling readers since 1969. These adventures have been the recipient of several awards, including Asahi Shimbun's 'Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize' (手塚治虫文化賞, Tezuka Osamu Bunkashō) in 1997. The cat was also recognised by Time Asia magazine in 2006 as an 'Asian Hero', or cultural icon.
