Taiwanese Politician Campaigns on Mazinger Z Float

Robot-shaped float also broadcasts theme songs from pioneering anime

A candidate for the Taiwanese legislature is campaigning from a custom-built float shaped as a giant Mazinger Z robot. Liu Chun-Yi is an independent candidate who is canvassing his potential constituents for the next Legislative Yuan elections, which will be held on January 12. His truck-converted Mazinger Z float carries Taiwanese flags in its “fists” and also plays theme songs from the Mazinger Z anime series. Just as in the anime, Liu’s float is “piloted” from the robot’s head, which doubles as the cockpit. Liu also rides around with campaigners dressed as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Tigger (from Winnie the Pooh), the American cartoon cat Garfield, and the Japanese robot cat Doraemon. Coincidentally, Yahoo! Taiwan News has posted a series of Chinese-language comics to teach young adults the complicated voting system, which was changed for next week’s elections.
