Tetsujin-28, Mazinger Z, and Getter Robo are all here to help
Whether it's out of style or necessity, we could all use a giant robot to lean on once in a while. Assisted living manufacturer TacaoF ("take care of") knows this, too, and has lauched a line of walking sticks bearing the motifs of three of anime's greatest robots.
TacaoF is one of Japan's go-to brands for seniors in need of assistance. The new line, which launches this month, brings some anime nostalgia to everyday life.
Three walking sticks are available, modeled after Tetsujin-28 (Gigantor in the West), Mazinger Z, and Getter Robo. The sticks are adjustable to ten different levels, so you can get it to the exact right height to suit you.
The walking sticks are 9,800 yen each, and go on sale July 13.
