Saudi Arabia has the biggest Grendizer statue in the World
UFO Robot Grendizer is a manga series written by Go Nagai. Its anime was produced by Toei Doga and Dynamic Planning and was broadcast on Fuji TV from October 5, 1975 to February 27, 1977 with a total of 74 episodes.
The world’s largest Grendizer statue was unveiled on November 21 at Boulevard World in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The Grendizer statue was recognized by Guinness World Records as the tallest metal statue in the world at 33.7 meters tall:
Something curious is that this Grendizer statue is slightly larger than the Grendizer from the anime series, which is 30 meters tall.
For a brief comparison we have the Unicorn Gundam statue in Odaiba, Japan which is only 19, meters high as you can see below:
Grendizer has always been more popular internationally, so homages like this to the anime/manga are to be expected. A very beautiful statue, don’t you think?
