Seriously. I thought they were gonna strap two huge long booster rockets to its backpack and launch it into the atmosphere.

Not two puny 1/144 models. BOO
Actually, now I want Japan's rocket program to be entirely about setting that thing on a course for the stars. Load up a DVD player and the entire series on it and send it off. Confuse the hell out of some aliens in a million years.

I want more crazy anime culture stuff in japans olympics!

I still hate they didnt use Doraemon as the mascot instead of that b tier sonic wannabe character.

At least I hope he appears doing some crazy shit during the opening ceremony.

TBH, I find the mascots adorable. I have plushies of both in my apartment. They look much better than what London was trying to push.

Oh, its miles better than the majority of the olympic mascots this past 20 years. Still I think there were better runner ups than the male version the kids (i think it was chosen by kids IIRC) chose, that reminds me to a sonic reject, and even having doraemon would have been incredible.
