In Japan they want to make a REAL Gundam
Yes, that’s right, you read that headline correctly; according to Worldcrunch & Yahoo! Japan, well-known LDP party members Tadamori Oshima and Bunmei Ibuki are supposedly planning to construct of a functioning version of a real-life giant Gundam robot.
The plan was disclosed in a 12-hour broadcast on Nico Nico Douga —a Japanese YouTube like site very popular among anime and manga fans.
File that one under the only in Japan drawer. As awesome as that is you have to wonder how many trillions of Yen would be required to accomplish such a task but perhaps even more importantly why?
