Get Married to a-- err, On a Gundam

Oh, ANN's not-so-daily link of the day-- they picked up word that Sunrise is allowing couples to have their wedding ceremonies hosted at the feet of the “life-size” 18-meter Gundam in Odaiba during its brief stay (the statue will vanish around August 31st, which is also the deadline for weddings).

A particlar wedding coordinator, Take and Give Needs, and wedding planner Akemi Ariga are working with the Green Tokyo Gundam project to make the weddings happen...which means that such a wedding will cost some SERIOUS dough.

Speaking of serious dough, that photo op on the Gundam's shoulder? Yeah, the auction ended at ¥2.6 million (about $27,800 USD). Yowza!
 
(On a random note, I just liked the poster on the right, which is why it's here.)

That's like Japan's equivalent of getting married on the Starship Enterprise at the Hilton Hotel.

Heh, I'd prefer being the fashionably late groom who shows up PILOTING the Gundam...assuming I even get married. :(

Getting married at the bottom of one though? The Gundam isn't some sort of monolith, it's a badass giant robot designed to kick ass....then again, I guess this would be comparable to having Kamina be the priest that hosts the ceremony.

I wonder how many people applied to marry the gundam.
