I think they're slowly progressing toward a giant robot theme park.

One can dream, anyway.

Ahh finally!
They are talking about this statue since 2006, as a symbol of Kobe's restoration of the earthquake of 1995.

Will be nice to watch another robot statue, taking in consideration that Tetsujin 28-go was the first super robot in manganime story.

But apparently it was a pretty cool show.

Does Yokoyama Mitsuteru have any works besides that one novel listed in MALs DB? You'd hope so, since a giant fucking statue is being built based on said works.

edit: kind of ignored the statue's relation to the tetsujin anime. Still, I don't understand the link the statue has to Yokoyama Mitsuteru..
