Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

It may sound like a good idea but I think it will be pretty bad. It will probably end up like a giant version of those robot fighting competitions where the robots just run into each other. I hope I'm wrong though, I'd love to see a great mech battle in real life.

Many people read only a selection of threads - there are thus many options for them to miss news or announcements that have been categorised differently from their choice.

The "Challenge Accepted" only came in today, to be fair.

But the Japanese gorilla got three separate posts (in 3 different threads); and few people notice all the reposts in the image threads.

Oh hell yes. Sudiobashi's been on my map since 2012. To see them coming back into the spotlight like this is pretty slick.

Both of them need more drills. And sunglasses-boomerangs.

Well maybe now that we have real giant robot battles, maybe we'll get real Senshado (Tankery) tournaments some day.
