See those two tiny little specs under the 59 foot tall giant robot aka 1/1 Gundam RX78. That’s the lucky couple chosen from nearly 500 entries by Wedding Planning company T&G to be married under the truly giant anime character. (Yup 500 other people wanted to do the same thing! Go figure.)
What’s a Gundam and why is there a giant one? Good question and the answer is probably one most of us wouldn’t understand anyway but I’ll give it a go. A Gundam is a giant robot suit controlled by a human and there is a humongous one in Tokyo because anime is HUGE in Japan and the Gundam series is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary as probably the most successful cartoon series in history.
I can just imagine what my wife would say to “Honey, let’s get married under the giant robot in Tokyo.” The answer wouldn’t be, “OK!”.
