After 3 years of intensive work on the French TV series, I finally got a break that I needed so much in 2017. And what better place to go was Japan. The last time I visited Japan was at the age of 12, (that was like 24 years ago) I have been wanting to visit Japan eversince the 1/1 scale Gundam statue was erected on 2009. And for the Past years I have been working really hard on my entry for GWBC to win a trip to visit the Gundam statue, but sadly my Gunpla are not even complete until today due to work, especially on my previous french TV series project that took 3 years to complete, here is a link to the show if you are interested www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxlW_z…
currently it was being shown on Netflix, and responses are sorta OK. I will talk more on another post later.
After the Project was completed, I decided to take a 1 week holiday in Tokyo on February 2017. What perfect timing that was, as I found out that the Gundam statue will be taken down on March 2017. I still manage to see it for the first and last time. Seeing the Gundam statue up close in person was really a far cry experience compare to seeing it on the books, magazines and internet, it was really a beauty on how majestic and detail it can be when seeing it up close in person. It was a mixed feeling, happy to see it and sad that it will be dismantle soon. I stare at it for a long 30 minute to enjoy it awesomeness despite the cold weather. Besides that I also visited Ghibli museum and visited all model shop in Akihabara. Overall I really enjoyed the Japan trip and wish it never ends.
A recent good news is that a 1/1 scale Gundam Unicorn will replace the current RX-78 statue within 2017, it gives me more reason to work hard to win GWBC to visit Japan again.
