History of Gundam now on display in Chiba


Step into the world of Gundam

Mech anime and I don't really gel too well. It likes to call me up from time to time, seeing if I'm free on the weekend, but most of the time I just make up an excuse not to go. Sure, mechs are wonderful to look at, but just don't hold my attention. Still, if I were to ever own a figure or build a GunPla, it would have to be a Gundam.

Gundam has such a rich history in anime that it's no wonder why it'sloved all over the world. Starting way back in 1979, Gundam has come to define the giant robot genre. If you want to enrich yourself by learning the history of Gundam, all you need to do is head to Chiba prefecture and visit the Aeon Mall Makuhari for Gundam World 2014. They have just about everything you can imagine on display including a 1/1 scale RX-78-2 Gundam head and Char’s Zaku II head. There's even a 1/10th scale full Wing Gundam Zero!

So if you're in or around Chiba prefecture and love Gundam, you need to stop by and check it out. The only drawback is that it is only open until January 13th.
