On the cover of Cheese comic magazine, Doraemon is doing a collaboration with the manga, Kanojo Wa Uso O Aishisugiteru, which won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shojo category.
You can see the covers of all the 51 magazines which will be a part of the Doraemon On Cover promotion. It will be interesting to see how Doraemon will be incorporated on the cover of Waraku magazine for Japanese culture and art because the magazine seldom has a model on the cover, but often features Japanese traditional art and scenery.
