About our introductory articles


Crayon Shin-chan the Movie 2014 is a Japanese animation film released in 2014. The subtitle is "Intense Battle! Robo Dad Strikes Back." Since 1993, they have released the Shin-chan movie every spring. Intense Battle! Robo Dad Strikes Back was released as the 22nd. It earned (about) 1.8 billion yen at the domestic box office.

Shin-chan means Nohara Shin-nosuke, a Japanese 5 years old child who lives in Kasukabe-shi, Saitama, Japan. They don't illustrate his smile from the front, strangely. Anyway, the Noharas consist of Hiroshi (father), Misae (mother), Shin-nosuke, and Himawari (younger sister). And Nohara Hiroshi plays the main role in the 2014 movie.

Hiroshi is a Japanese 35 years old white-collar worker. One day, he changed into a robot without defined reasons. When he got aware, he was already a robot.

The robot Hiroshi came home, and the Noharas were (naturally) surprised. You can agree with them, can't you? What made him a robot? The problem is it. One secret society produced the robot, in fact. They were under the slogan of the patriarchy restoration.

As you learnt in history classes, the Russian Revolution broke out in 1917. The origin was a revolt by Russian women. The Russian Empress saw them rise in revolt and said "storming out are the idlers who usually stay in home when it is cold." As the history shows, the 20th century was almost the time of women. In many countries including Japan, women rose up.

And some men disagree with the worldwide tendency, however. Donald Trump seems like one of them. He, without hesitation, officially utilized his (beautiful) daughter Ivanka Trump as a smoke screen. Hashimoto Osamu, a Japanese novelist who passed away in 2019 January, described them as the phantoms of patriarchy. Good grief, but the phantoms like Donald Trump were often seen at various situations in the decade of 2010's. I consider Crayon Shin-chan the Movie 2014 might have appeared as the sign.
