“Last week, MegaBots, an American engineering company, challenged Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a duel….
Kogor Kurata, Suidobashi’s founder and chief executive, posted a response on YouTube, saying his robot would fight, as long as the fight was hand-to-hand.
“Just building something huge and sticking guns on it. It’s… super American,” he said.
“We can’t let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture. But you know, we really need… Melee combat…”
Oh my goodness. Who do I cheer for? I mean it’d be a miscarriage of justice if Japan loses a giant robot battle so I want to cheer for them… but Americans win. That’s what we do. No loss is acceptable!
