やべぇ本気で行ってるぜ!
[Shit just got serious!]​


The Liberal Democratic Party are slated to discuss the possibility of building bipedal battle mechas in an upcoming live broadcast of NicoNico Live. The 12-hour-long broadcast will take place on the official LDP website on Thursday, June 28, at 12:00pm (Japan Standard Time).

The actual Gundam debate will begin at 8:00pm JST. This might help if anyone is actually going to watch it.


In every Japanese source I've looked at, there seems to be a public outcry against this idea. Looks like the Japanese citizens aren't willing to pay the taxes that would be necessary to fund something like this. My verdict: nothing will come out of it...yet. Just posted it for the lulz.

As 20th Century Boys so aptly put out, Gundam proportions are impossible, short of using unobtainium alloys. The feet just cannot support the weight of the torso, much less any ordinance.

However, if they're aiming for much more realistically possible proportions, they should look at Front Mission and Mechwarrior (but this one's western so...). blocky robots that look like trucks.

Why isn't the rest of East Asia this cool? All the rest has is military police, mass population and whatever North Koreans are.
China will immediately copy the resulting robot, color it red and yellow, and then accuse Japan of copying their design. Then on the maiden voyage of China's prototype, it falls apart majestically, killing dozens of collateral damage civilians.

Funny, but shame on you for the racism :creep:

Laugh all you want, they already have a working prototype in their hands.

Haven't you heard? They're going to make it out of Gundanium alloy found only by mining asteroids in space.
