Japanese Politicians Are Thinking about Building Gundam. Like, Real, Working Gundam.
We'd be screwed if they did.
Where are they going to get the gundanium?
Right next to the Unobtainium.
I know Detroit had the Robocop statue, but an actual, fully functional Gundam? Those politicians clearly have not seen the Dai-Guard series, which pretty much lays out the sheer idiocy of having a giant Mecha for national defense due the rather gigantic number of problems that stem from simply maintaining the thing. I think they'd be better off trying to figure out how to get a power supply for the country, like building a Solar Orbital Tower, if they want to impress the Japanese Nerdom.
It will be the pride of Japan
I doubt it'l have military function, as theres the small problems of fuel, fuel storage and stuff like that. I think it could just be the start of an innovation though, as this might inspire others, for better or for worse...
Man, if they are planning to use it in defense force they should start with the mass produced stuff, not the Gundam go with the Zaku first. It's cheaper.
By zaku I'm sure you mean Sinanju
I'm partially happy, and partially confused by this.
Wha? The Sinanju is a prototype unit, not a mass production suit.
And on that matter they could go with Zakus or even GM's, the latter since they're pretty much just stripped down RX-78-2 bodies anyway.
I was joking...cause the Sinanju has a Zaku like head...
Please dont talk polics on here
I think the joke would be lost on those who don't actively follow the Universal Century.
How the heck is this politics? It's just some politicians suggesting Japan actually builds something akin to one of its most famous anime icons. Considering the money involved and the global economy, it's silly to think Japan would actually bankrupt themselves simply to build a giant combat robot that would be less than useless at its job.
How about more along the lines of Evangelion? They were essentially plugged in.
I'll have some of whatever those politicians are smoking please.
The LAST thing we need in the real world is the ending of Neon Genesis Evangelon actually happening.
All I remember is giant boobs above the world, and I'm okay with that.
