Wow, that is impressive. I can't imagine something like that (a large-scale statue of a fictional character from pop culture) being made where I'm from. Bless Japan. ^.^

Only Japan can do this! How they respect this kind of pop culture creation and treat this so seriously with tons of professionals to make it happen.
