Elon Musk, who is often called a real-life version of Tony Stark, is also openly an anime fan. This is something which has been known for a very long time, since 2018 to be precise.
It all came out after a chain of tweets went viral, in which Musk revealed how he loves the Anime Movie, Your Name, which at the time came as a surprise to many. This particular tweet was replied to by Shawn Wasabi, a famous YouTuber who makes music, calling the billionaire “weeblon musk“, to which then Musk himself corrected by replying how he should be called “Elon-chan” instead.
Elon Musk’s Intention To Create A Mecha
Mecha refers to a very powerful mechanical robot or a suit that one can wear, it is very famous in Japanese anime and has had a whole culture around it, anime like Gundam Series and Neon Genesis Evangelion are some pretty famous examples of the above.
Elon Musk is known for being notorious in cases like these, he has already been noticed for making items like flamethrowers earlier. Following the tweet he made earlier about liking anime and what name he would like to be called, he shortly tweeted how it is now time to create a mecha, which would be a pretty big deal if it was actually followed through.
For now, it looks like Elon is not going to proceed with his plan of making a giant super futuristic robot any time soon, but who knows, he has already started the process of bringing the future to the present by changing Twitter to X,
the Everything app.

Why Did Elon Musk Change Twitter
After teasing it for a few months now, Elon Musk, who bought Twitter for nearly 44 billion dollars in October last year, has now officially changed the app to X,
The Everything app. The app is claimed to be the future, as it has a lot of features that it is going to offer to its users soon.
It has been revealed that the app will supposedly have social media features such as Instagram and Facebook, as well as a messaging feature, so two users can interact with each other. The app will also be able to function as an E-Commerce platform and will also act as a payment solution, just like Venmo.
One of the most crucial functions is how the app will be based on a centralised blockchain in an attempt to bring an end to censorship as well as encryption to the platform.
