Mr. Kunio Okawara, one question one answer
[Characteristics and points of the design of Ox Gundam]
Until now, I have designed many mechas with animal motifs. When we think of cows, we think of horns, nose rings, and hooves. I tried to incorporate them into the design obediently.
[Difficulties in designing Ox Gundam]
There was no particular difficulty. Rather, I was excited to be able to create a new character.
