Jun is Akira's legal guardian who met him by chance when she was nearly conned by a shady marketplace man into buying low-grade spice blends. Akira has a better understanding of spices and is much more responsible for maintaining her spice seminar room, despite the age difference. He is not shy to scold her when she is irresponsible and at times, it seems more like he is the adult and Jun is the child. Despite this, Akira cherishes Jun for rescuing him and giving him the opportunity to be where he is. His main motivations to cook are centered around Jun, refusing a lucrative job at the Haubi Food Cooperation solely because he only wants to work for Jun. Sōma was Tōtsuki's only transfer student, who was known for his online-yet-uncanny attitude. Akira recognized Sōma from his infamous speech and his 11th hour Breakfast Buffet Challenge. Akira belittled Sōma as he deemed Soma's performance was not good enough for the ultimate praise because of his theory about the aroma of food. However, never Akira expected that would Sōma not only boldly accept his challenge, but also see him as an interesting student to befriend with.
39;s dish a higher score.
Both of them presented their dish in the Preliminary Rounds of the Autumn Elections. Akira's dish scored 94 points, while Sōma's scored 93 points. Despite winning by one point, Akira saw the result as a hollow victory as 3 of the 5 judges gave Soma's dish a higher score. Sōma, along with Ryo were his opponents in the finals of the Autumn Elections. Akira won the finals, making him the only person to defeat Sōma aside from Soma's own father, Jōichirō. Akira's first opponent for the Autumn Election Main Tournament was Hisako. Both he and Hisako shared their professionalism in food forte, especially in spices and herbs. As a route for the Tōtsuki top, Akira was planning to replace Erina as an Elite Ten Council member, much to Hisako's scorn. After defeating Hisako in a hamburger match, Akira criticized Hisako for her lack of ambition and limited vision of the culinary world, as well her loyalty towards Erina, which he deemed her as Erina's "No.2". Akira's second opponent for the Autumn Election Main Tournament (Semifinals) was Ryō.
He is the first person since the beginning of the series that made Hayama feel threatened hence making him use his full strength. That including his tie in the semifinals and Ryō belittle his cooking only added fuel to his rivalry between them making the two the main attraction of the three-way final. In the final, Ryō used an aroma bomb along side his fresh pacific saury in order to beat Akira's aromas however Hayama used a more focused aroma alongside his fresh flavor pacific saury. Although the battle was very even between Hayama, Ryō and Sōma at the end the judges chose Akira as the winner because his dish was more of a specialty. Till the present, they still have some rivalry left; however now, their relationship is more friendly and, on some occasions, have been seen hanging together for different reasons. After deceiving Jun into giving approval to Alice and Ryo to allow them to use the Shiomi Seminar's booth for the Moon Banquet Festival, Hayama was forced to participate with them despite his reluctance, forming what Alice dubs the 'White Coat Trio'. Due to Alice's poor decision making for the booth, they continued to suffer losses, leading to Hayama often argued with Alice. However the Shiomi Seminar was able to turn a profit in the end as Alice managed to come up with a dish that includes colorful chocolate patterns, which enhanced the curry dishes they were offering. This managed to entity the customers, and Akira himself was also impressed by Alice's ingenuity. He first met her when she and Sōma came to visit the Shiomi Seminar to ask for help for the Autumn Election Preliminiars. Akira showed her and Sōma how slight alterations in the cooking and preparing of spices can have a great impact on the final result. She was left impressed by his dishes.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations.

He is the elder brother of Dorami.
39;s good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
Though they consider each other only as friends.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
Gian is also confident in cooking, but just like his singing, his hand made food can be a nightmare for other people very easily. However, Gian does not hesitate to help his friends when they are in real trouble. Throughout the series, particularly the films, he is often the one who voices the most concern and refuses to look away when there is a problem, an opposite of Suneo's cowardice. While he is described by others as daunting and intimidating, he is very sensitive and prone to crying when something touching happens, and he actually values his friends highly, a feeling which his friends sometimes reciprocate. Gian also has a soft spot for his younger sister, Jaiko, and usually tries to prevent her from trouble, even if she can perfectly handle her situation. Gian basically is a bullying 'tsundere'. His catchphrase is "What's mine is mine. What's yours is also mine." (「俺の物は、俺の物。お前の物も俺の物。」, "Ore no mono wa, ore no mono. Omae no mono mo ore no mono."), also known as Gianism (ジャイアニズム, Jaianizumu) in Japan (the Japanese band Nightmare have borrowed the term for their albums Gianism Best Ofs and Gianizm). Pisces) is the fox-faced (inherited) from his mother) rich child who loves to flaunt his material wealth before everyone, especially Nobita. A lot of the stories start with Suneo showing off some new video game, toy or pet which evokes Nobita's envy.
