We have seen several cases of wives who threw away their husband’s Gunpla (Gundam plastic models), but this particular one was a bit different than that and had managed to caught the Japanese internet users’ attention last year.
A Twitter user called Naonyan (@NaokiModel) took into his Twitter and posted a screenshot of a message from his wife, showing his RX-78-2 Gundam, both of its arms tied with a rope like some sort of hostage, along with a single sentence: “Don’t you care about whatever is going to happen to this thing?” The caption of his tweet was as follows:
“Families that threw away a husband’s Gunpla has become quite a topic, but when I told my wife ‘I was invited to go for a drink, so I’m going to be coming home late today’ through mail, she replied with this message.”
I doubt Naonyan’s wife is going to do anything serious to his beloved Gunpla, and it’s probably just her way of showing her love for her husband. Right? Okay, I can be wrong. But one thing for sure is that the tweet has been racking over 100k retweets and 130k likes.
