KAMI-ROBO


My favorite part of the San Diego Comic-Con this year was the Kami-Robo exhibit. Tomohiro Yasui has been making small robot wrestlers since 1982 when he was in the fifth grade. I believe there are now over 300 hundred characters that do battle in different clans and classes. Yasui put on one live show a day at SDCC and as his robots played up to the crowd and cameras, I was totally sucked in. I couldn't believe the amazing fluid nature in which his wrestlers perform.
