Japan Accepts America’s Giant Robot Duel

All our anime dreams are coming true.

Last week, giant robot builders MegaBots slapped Japan with a white glove. They decided to challenge an imposing and impressive robot from Japan, Kuratas, to a mecha battle. The video above, released this weekend by Suidobashi Heavy Industry, confirmed that it is indeed on.

And Japan doesn’t seem intimidated in the slightest by MegaBots’ mech. “Come on guys, make it cooler,” said Suidobashi Heavy Industry founder Kogoro Kurata.

“Just building something huge and sticking guns on it. It’s….Super American.” (Awww sh**.)

Citing the role of giant robots in Japanese culture, Kurata accepted the duel, claiming that another country couldn’t win on principle. But Kurata doesn’t want just a manned mech paintball battle. He wants actual steel on steel melee contact.

“If we’re gonna win this, I want to punch them to scrap and knock them down to do it.”

There’s no word on when or where the battle will take place, but I think we’re all imagining the same thing:
