Doraemon: The Record of Nobita's Parallel Visit to the West (ドラえもん のび太のパラレル西遊記 Doraemon: Nobita no Parareru Saiyûki) is the ninth installment of the Doraemon feature films. It is notable for being the only movie to not be based on the manga.
Nobita's misuse of gadgets gives birth to a parallel universe, where monsters from the novel, 'Journey to the West' have invaded the real world!
Nobita, Gian, Shizuka, and Suneo are preparing for a school play on the "Journey to the West". As they are arguing about who should play the role of the monkey king, Nobita suggested that the real monkey king should play the role. Because the monkey king is only a legend, Nobita and Doraemon have decided to go back in time using the time machine and make a fake one and show Gian, Shizuka, and Suneo to prove that they are right. Unfortunately, Doraemon's machine allowed the fictional monsters to come to the real world and defeated the entire human races, thus turning the future (Nobita's time) into a demon-ruled world. In order to reverse the change, Doraemon and gang needed to return to the past and capture the demons back into the machine. On the way, they have met the real monk and rinrei (a child). At the end, they have either returned the demons back to the machine or destroy them with Dorami's help, thus turning the future back to normal.
