Anyway, so I thought I'd do another Anime Inspired Food post for the occasion. You can click the Anime label to read a few others I have done in the past.
Food in Gundam actually combines three of my food fascination subcategories. Food scenes in Anime, Space Food, and Food Packaging. The one in the original Gundam series that left the biggest impression on me was when protagonist Gundam pilot, gearhead, and eventual discovered Newtype - Amuro Ray explains to his fellow mates why the Gundam system is superior to other Mobile Suits (can you tell I'm totally geeking out right now?? haha). He goes on to draw a diagram of RX-78-2's advanced learning and evolving mechanism in a flat plate of mashed potatoes.
After a long search (that baffled even my most Gundam Otaku friends), it turned out this was from episode number 4.
Here is Amuro with his three-pronged space fork ready for some major schooling in Gundam's awesomeness.
He goes on to explain the inner workings in his uber nerdy fervor. And below the image that I was so excited to finally find after all these years!!
I'd swear I had those side of space baby carrots at the SD Chicken Pie Shop recently.
After Amuro is satisfied with the attention he has received, he proceeds to scoop a bite from his art creation like a monk would a sand mandala. "Mmm, nutritional good eats this blue space paste.."
As to echo the celebration of our 4th of July, Bandai has been making a full size (180-Meter tall) Gundam in Odaiba (Japan's Statue of Liberty??) to celebrate its 30th Anniversary. I cannot explain how so amazingly crazy jealous I am at the moment. I would make a promise to god that I will start jogging everyday at 5:30AM if I can run past this marvel every morning wearing my NB's. I will be the happiest person in the
By now there are quite many videos on YouTube but I found this one that seems to have been taken from a cell especially cool for its Lomo like low-tech effect..
If this fancies you make sure you check out the project's official YouTube channel Voidwild. They've been uploading semi-weekly updates with tons of neat informational background.
Below a nice clip at night showing the mist and lighting effects very well..
The birds flying in the background in this evening shot makes it especially neat..
And heck, it's probably the coolest in the morning still.. Dang, did I say I was jealous?!
And despite all this, no I'm not an Otaku, really.. But my friend who made this video a while back definitely is.
If you got the Gold Blend coffee and Char's Hyaku Shiki pun I congratulate.
Not full-scale but a clip of a large 7-Meter tall Z-Gundam here. This one of a Zaku awakening is spine chilling for me and another from the Bandai Museum. I'm glad to have found out that it has resurrected in a nearby city now though where a visit to its G Style Cafe would be a must for me next time I'm there. I'll have the blue mashed potatoes please.. :)
Happy soon to be 4th!
