Images of this mysterious statue are circulating the internet. It appears to be a huge stone sculpture of a Gundam from the anime franchise of the same name. It lies next to traditional gave markers at a tomb-making business in Yasu City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan.
If you can afford it, why not have your own huge anime-themed tombstone? Rocket News 24 writes:
One particular use of the Gundam grave photo came when a netizen mused that in 30 years when fans of the original series start dying off, you’ll be bound to see Gundam themed graves turning up everywhere. Someone answered by posting the top photo to everyone’s amazement. Another reader commented “in 40 years the Gundam era of anime’s fans will die off, 50 years later the Evangelion era’s will perish, and in 60 years we will see the demise of K-On! fans.”
The future is going to be awesome/weird.
