Fukushima's Goofy Gundam is Re-Armed and Out for Revenge!


 

Be careful, warmongers! In line with an off-the-cuff chronology posted to Twitter by an area fan, Fukushima’s loveably off-model native attraction, the “Hetare Gundam” statue, has recovered from a latest theft and is now packing extra high-tech (and low constancy) weaponry than ever earlier than.

ビームライフルが盗まれる

その後モデルガンやビームライフル、ハイパーバズーカが寄贈される

地域の区長さん「ありがたいけど銃は2丁で十分」

するとハンマーが寄贈される

重装備化が一向に止まらない

Crunchyroll beforehand reported on the theft of the statue’s authentic beam rifle and its alternative with an ad-hoc hyper bazooka fabricated from duct tape and plastic bottles. In line with Twitter person @shikishinobu, there have been further developments: after the preliminary theft, a mannequin shotgun and the hyper bazooka have been donated by nameless followers, prompting the native mayor to thank the followers for his or her donations, but in addition to specific the concept two weapons are “adequate”.

Undeterred, the donations stored coming, together with such heavy melee ordinance as a kusari-gama fashion chain weapon with an anchor on one finish and a morningstar on the opposite. @shikishinobu concludes with a well-known quote from the unique 1979 Cell Swimsuit Gundam TV collection, the place Amuro Ray muses that his father actually went overboard with the design of the RX-78-2 Gundam cell swimsuit.

 

Personally, I hope this pattern continues. “Hetare Gundam” is simply too highly effective. “Hetare Gundam” can’t be stopped.
