All the Way From a Future World (未来の国からはるばると Mirai no Kuni Kara Harubaruto), also known as All the Way From the Future in the English Amazon Kindle and Shogakukan Asia manga, is the first chapter of the Doraemon manga and the first chapter of the Doraemon franchise. Most main characters make their first appearance here.


A 10-year-old boy named Nobita Nobi hears a mysterious voice saying that he will hang himself in the next 30 minutes and be burned alive in the next 40 minutes. He asks who is speaking, but nobody; suddenly, the drawer at his desk opens. He is shocked when a blue robot cat hops out of his desk and eats the rice cake before leaving. After a short while, a boy named Sewashi Nobi also comes. They explain that they are from the future and have come to save Nobita from a horrible fate. Sewashi tells him about the future and that he will marry Jaiko 15 years later. Nobita refuses to talk about this and chases both back. Nobita's mother and father confided in him about the bad dream. (Knowing his fate) After that, Shizuka and Jaiko are playing battledore, and the shuttlecock is stuck on Nobita's house roof. Shizuka asks him to get the shuttlecock. Nobita slips on the roof and hangs himself. Shizuka asks him to play battledore, and Nobita gets full of ink in one try by Jaiko. He gets mad and insults her. Gian also appears for a short while. Nobita is going to the bathroom to clean his face, but slips with the soap and falls into the bathtub. Finally, he is burning himself from staying too close to the heater. Then he views the album as about his future. In 1979, Nobita failed the university entrance exam. In 1988, he founded his own company. In 1993, his company was on fire, and in 1995, the creditors asked for his loan after his company went bankrupt. This is the reason why Sewashi's family is very poor, and Doraemon needs to come there to change Nobita's fate. In the ending of the chapter, Sewashi wants to see a 20th-century town, so Doraemon takes the Take-copter to fly. They end up flying properly, except for Nobita, who has it on his pants. He then ends up falling down and hurting himself, and his pants are then flying off and he runs off with only his shirt, underwear, and socks on.
