Appearances

Sunemaru Honekawa (骨川スネ丸 Honekawa Sunemaru) is Suneo's ancestor who appeared in an episode from the 1979 series. He is a samurai, who saves Nobisaku from a warthog in the episode, therefore becoming his idol.

Story[]

Sunemaru was born into a wealthy family, but his parents are always too busy with work to spend time with him. As a result, he has grown up to be very lonely and insecure. He often tries to impress his friends by boasting about his possessions and his family's wealth, but they usually see through his act.

Despite his flaws, Sunemaru is actually a good-hearted person. He is always willing to help his friends when they are in need, even if it means putting himself in danger. He is also very loyal to his friends and family, and he would do anything for them.

Appearances[]

Sunemaru has a similar appearance to Suneo, but with a few key differences. He has a more pronounced fox-like face, larger ears, and a more pointed nose. He also has a more slender build, and is often seen wearing traditional Japanese clothing.

In terms of personality, Sunemaru is much like his descendant. He is a braggart who loves to flaunt his wealth and possessions. He is also a bit of a coward and is often reluctant to get involved in dangerous situations. However, he is also a loyal friend, and is always willing to help his friends in need.

Sunemaru first appeared in the Doraemon manga chapter "The Ancestor of the Honekawa Family" (骨川家のルーツ, Honekawa-ke no Rūtsu), which was published in 1974. He has since appeared in numerous other manga chapters and anime episodes.
