"Although Mr Abe showed up as Super Mario, whichever way you think about it, unless he came out as Ultraman, Pikachu or Godzilla, it was no good. There really isn't that much of an impact."
Mario is neat and all, but Ultraman costumes are fantastic. For example, imagine him in this.

Takeshi isn't criticising Mario per se, but rather, the Prime Minister's showmanship.
Continuing, he explains, "It's no good wearing a business suit. It's no good unless you wear an Ultraman costume. You gotta have that connected to wires." Takeshi added that the politician could then fly in.
Like this, I guess?

Yes, like this.
Ultraman might not have the same international recognition as Mario, and I personally love how the Tokyo Olympics is turning out to be the geekiest yet, but, safety and security concerns aside, he might be right about the wire-flying bit.
