Exclamation I'm pretty sure there is/are secret message/s in the mecha update

I don't mean the japanese stuff, I think that's easy to translate so it's probably a joke or some nonsense, I'm talking about the two pieces of tape that seem to have a code written in them.
The Halloween update also had some kind of code but as far as I know no one deciphered it.
Feel free to write your findings below.

That reminds me: the "all your hats are belong to us" joke was a nice detail.

I took a guess in Google Translate, and the Blu text translates to "Mecha Engineer" so yeah, I'm guessing the Japanese is jokes. But I also questioned the code looking one.

EDIT: Attempting something, will return with results...if any.
EDIT EDIT: I got nothing.

I was thinking the computer printouts used as page breaks looked like some type of code people much smarter than I would find a hex code from...

japanese stuff was just asthetics and titles translated into japanese.

on the side, "30.48 meter, 100 feet."

title is "Engineer vs Mechaengineer"

subtext
"Robots!
Mankind!
War!"

comic button just says comic

map description says "new tour, new war trophies."

"new weapons" in the background of the 3 new class weapons

that's it. there's nothing secret about them, now someone get to the numbers printout please...

punch card 1: UPDATE_IMMINENT

punch card 2: DECEMBER__0__01
There's no 2s row to encode the B though, and I have no idea what the garbage on the end is.

Explanation coming soon
