Plot: This film is inspired by an actual technological competition opened every year in Japan since 1988.
Satomi (Nagasawa Masami) is a student of a technical college. She is a lazy girl and poor at both study and club activities. One day, a teacher tells her she is short of credits and needs to have extra lessons. More lessons will be killing her, but the teacher gives her a proposal that if she joins the second robot club of the college and takes part in the coming Robokon with the club, he will accept that as the credit.
'RobotContest' or Robokon is competed by one hundred and twenty-four teams from sixty-two technical colleges - two teams from each college. Everyteam consists of one robot and three members of crew - a captain, an operator and a mechanic. The captain of Satomi's team is the club leader Yotsuya (Ito Atsushi), who has dropped out of the first robot club of the college because it is too tightly organized, but is worried about too few members of his club and his small gift of robot operation. The mechanic is Aida (Oguri Shun), who is a lonely genius -having enough gifts in technological fields and no cooperation. And theoperator is Satomi, who has never operated a robot before. Their robot is named 'BOXhund', designed with outstanding ideas but still incomplete.
«Although the narrative's pretty straightforward, it managed to create a sense of tension and a highly charged environment as our team challenges their competition through various round robin stages, and it is this part of the film that showcased the innovation and ideas of some of the robots, their wacky designs, and various functionalities.»
