Shizuka (born on 8 May 2001), usually called Shizu-chan (静ちゃん) or Shizuka-chan (静香ちゃん), is the smart, kind and pretty neighborhood girl and Nobita's best friend. She takes baths several times a day. Nobita often disrupts her in the bath due to some misuse of Doraemon's gadgets, and Shizuka usually shouts out "Go away, pervert!" to Nobita. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly, which is sometimes used as an excuse for declining to hang out with Nobita. She has dislike for frogs. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she'd rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is as atrocious as Gian's singing. Due to Doraemon's intervention, Shizuka will marry Nobita and she will become Nobita's wife in the future timeline, and the mother of his son.
