The cities and islands in Hokkaido's Rumoi Subprefecture has announced their new collective mascot, the combination robot: Ororon 8. Ororon 8 will controlled by an all female pilot team and will be constructed by combining ten different smaller robots representing each of the towns within Rumoi.
The ten parts themselves are all based either off of their respective town's mascots, such as Rumoi city's Kazumo-chan and Teshio's Teshio Kamen, or a notable landmark in the area, like the Shosanbetsu Observatory and Obira's Hanada Fishing House.
While Ororon 8 may look like your typical fighting robot, due to the fact that Rumoi is a peaceful area, his current job consists of standing in the harbor and looking out at the ocean.
