>Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters hits Japanese theaters on November 17Discuss Godzilla and other Kaijus, simple as that.
So when did you guys realize Varan was /our kaiju/?
>>16028069EVERYBODY GET UP IT'S TIME TO SLAM NOW
>>16028069I think Barkley would still win. Zilla cannot even slamjam unless he's the one being slammed.
Has anyone played city shrouded in shadow?
>>16028469I fucking wish. I haven't seriously played video games for three years, but I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it were localized. Literally a game I've always wanted to see since I was a little shit.
>>16028489Ps4 isn't region locked so you could always import it! I'm sure there are or will be translation guides online.
Do you think we’ll get an official English translation of the novel?
>>16028591God I hope so, that or a fan translation would be fantastic.
Am I the only one hesitant about the anime movies? Gen Urobuchi only has like a 1/3rd success rate with and the CG and monster designs do not look great. Specially those incredibly generic drakes.
>>16028615Are they seriously so lazy that they can't even be assed to open his mouth during the laser animation?
>>16028621I really hope that's not what we are looking at, and it's just some kind of dramatic visual.
>>16028620Nothing about the movie has struck me as great so far either (the prequel novel does sound interesting, but that's only a tie-in product), but I'm willing to give it a shot. At this point I'm not expecting to come out of it loving it, though.>>16028625Could be, but it's also odd that the line isn't horizontal. Maybe he can release a beam out of the crackling field around him without needing to open his mouth? Or it's coming out of his nose? Or I'm just looking to deeply into a simple marketing poster?
>>16028636>Maybe he can release a beam out of the crackling field around him without needing to open his mouth?I will legit be fucking triggered if they pull this shit in the movie.
anyone know where to download Return of Godzilla?
Should I repost all the information about the monsters from last thread and how they're in the Novel?
>Novel says there's:>4 Kamoebas>4 Anguirus>4 Varan>4 BaragonKamoebas appeared 4 times in Toho's history, in Yog Monster From Space/Space Amoeba, Godman, Tokyo SOSAnguirus appeared 4 times in Toho's films:1955, 1968-1974, GFWVaran in 1956, 1968, the scrapped GMK, and nowBaragon in 1965, 1968, GMK, and now.>Giant Mantises, the preform of Kamacuras and Baby Zillas are involved>Biolantte was big enough for Moguera to BURROW THROUGH .
>Appearing as: Sir Not appearing in the novel or film.
>>16028680>Kamacuras: The first Kamacuras was killed by bunker buster bombs after attacking New York in 1999. By the 2030's numerous Kamacuras inhabited the U.S., along with Kumonga.Kamacuras is the first monster to canonically appear in the novel, triggering the events of the series. This is also a reference to the failed script idea for Godzilla's return after TriStar's Godzilla, in 1999, 'Godzilla vs Kamacuras'
>Dogora: Killed by spider venom being released from chemical plants in the UK and Europe in 2002 after it attacked London, causing over 3 million deaths. It is currently unknown if they split into the Dogora Cells like they did in the original 1964 film.
>Kamoebas: At least four individuals appeared. The fourth Kamoebas washed ashore dead on Odo Island in 2030, and was the first evidence of the existence of Godzilla.The first three are a reference to Space Amoeba, Godman, and Tokyo SOS. It's at this time the world becomes aware of Godzilla.
>Rodan: The first Rodan attacked Beijing with the first Anguirus in 2005, but they were both killed by Hedorah. However, sometime later flocks of Rodan were present in Siberia and preyed upon refugees fleeing Europe.
>Anguirus: The first Anguirus was killed by Hedorah along with Rodan in 2005. A second Anguirus attacked South Africa a year later, but its fate is unknown. A fourth Anguirus was killed by Godzilla in Los Angeles in 2030, along with Varan II and Baragon II.Again, the first three were references to the one from Godzilla Raids again, and is even pictured as such in a recent 'kaiju attack chart', the Showa one, and the GFW one.The fourth appearing with Varan and Baragon is a reference to the original story for GMK.
>Hedorah: Hedorah was a bioweapon created by the Chinese, but went out of control after it killed Rodan and Anguirus. It destroyed Beijing and Tianjin, then vanished after it consumed all pollutants in the area. It's safe to say Hedorah's fate is unknown.
>Gabara: Gabara was injured in a Thermite explosion and fell into a river and was eaten alive by crocodiles and piranhas. Gabara was only about 10 meters tall, so he was smaller than many of the other kaiju.
>Dagahra: Dagahra attacked Australia in 2017, and was eventually fatally wounded by the Australian military and flew out to sea and died. However upon death he released a ton of Barems into Australian waters, which arguably caused more devastation than him.
>Orga: Orga attacked Turkey in 2022, attacking refugee camps. No details are given about his defeat, but it gives the impression that he was stopped.
>Megalon: Megalon appeared in 2012 and destroyed several countries along the west coast of Africa. He returned in 2022 and completely destroyed South Africa. No details on his fate.
>Griffon: Appeared in Cairo in 2021. They were seemingly defeated before they could reproduce and spread.
>Gezora: Terrorized the Mediterranean in the late 2010's, hindering refugee movement out of Europe. Fate unknown.
>Giant Octopus: Lived in the Pacific Ocean, and sank several fishing boats and transport vessels every year. Fate unknown.
>Ganimes: Attacked American crab fishing boats in the Bering Sea. Fate unknown.Ganimes hates Deadliest Catch.
Got to have a fucking Atragon reference. Since that's the only thing Manda's good for apparently.>Manda: First appeared in the Atlantic in 2022 and terrorized it for years. He was finally destroyed by the Gotengo in the Strait of Dover 2039 as part of "Operation: Eternal Light," a mission to regain control of the Atlantic Ocean from the kaiju.
>Varan: Multiple individuals appeared, but the second Varan was killed by Godzilla in Los Angeles in 2030. Killed along side Baragon and an Anguirus.
>Baragon: Same case as Varan. Multiple individuals appeared, but Baragon II was killed by Godzilla in LA in 2030 along side Anguirus and Varan.
AAAAAHYUK HYUK HYUK HYUKDOOOOOH HYUK HYUK HYUK>Maguma: Destroyed North Korea in 2024 then moved into South Korea. Once Maguma approached Seoul, the U.S. launched a tactical nuke and killed him.Maguma does what Trump don't.
>Kumonga: Lived alongside Kamacuras in the U.S. in the 2030's. No details on its fate or how many there were.
>Megaguirus: No details yet. No mention of Meganula and Meganuron.
>Biollante: Appeared off the coast of Normandy in 2039 as "Operation: Eternal Light" was underway and took G-Force by surprise. She was defeated by Moguera when it burrowed into her roots and destroyed her "heart."
>Moguera: Fought Biollante off the coast of Normandy in 2039 in "Operation: Eternal Light", bored through the bottom of her and drilled into her heart, killing her.
>Zilla: When the first Zilla was killed it was misidentified by the French as Godzilla because it also was a bipedal creature with back fins and a long tail. Unfortunately Zilla was capable of asexual reproduction and quickly overran France, and frequently preyed upon refugees fleeing from Godzilla himself. Zilla was eventually wiped out by G-Force, but at great cost and difficulty.
>Baby Zilla: Were among the many Zillas living in France, eating humans. The Zilla infants were smart enough to lure tanks and Soldiers into traps, and had them destroyed by the adult Zillas.
>Gorosaurus: Appeared in Paris after Godzilla destroyed it. Gorosaurus was killed by the combined efforts of G-Force and the Bilsards in 2039.
>MechaGodzilla: One of the aliens, a group of ape looking ones, are building something at the base of Mt. Fuji using space titanium.
>Space Godzilla's name was dropped in one media for the movie.
Gabara/destroyah for 2020 make monster island great again
The following are not mentioned in any way:>Mothra>Battra>Sanda>Gaira>Gigan>Ghidorah>Mecha-King Ghidorah>Ebirah>King Caesar>Giant Condor>Matango>Giant Rats>Giant Sea Snake>Monster X>Keizer Ghidorah>DesGhidorah>Destoroyah
>Jet Jaguar:Although he doesn't appear, the suits the G-Force uses to fight the Zillas in Paris, France, are called Type-38 Mobile Combat Uniform 'Jaguar J'.
i like zilla i would love to see a godzilla vs zilla rematch
im looking forward to the king Kong v Godzilla remake that is in development i here in this movie we will finally see you the definitive winner is
>>16028773They DID have a rematch. In IDW's Godzilla: Rulers of Earth. >>16028776They're most likely gonna be unwilling team mates and fight a bigger monster.
Oh yeah. Godzilla's involved some how. Forgot to mention that.
>>16028786Except for some stupid reason he's a plant.
the prequel novel sounds so much better then the movie
>>16028799The novel is just elaborate lore urobuchi came up with, it's fluff compared to the main story.
Planet of the monsters is confirmed to have a running time of 89 minutes. Shortest movie since the showa days
Anigoji doesn't have to open his mouth to fire his heat ray. >>16029077That's because it was originally a 1 cour anime. Every movie is going to be a little more than 4 episodes long.
>>16028717Thats so fucking pathetic
>>16029077>89 minutesI guess it's a safe bet to say it'll just be cute teens fighting Godzilla and the servums and no kaiju fights for the first movieAlso has anyone else watched the music video for Monster Planet's theme song? It's a weird, techo jap song, but i think the music vid has some secret references to the plot. The kid with the skateboard was wearing an ape mask several times. Possible reference to Black Hole Aliens?
>>16028746It speaks of how incompetent/starved the north koreans are that fucking Maguma managed to kill them
>>16029142The singer is a real qt.
>>16029142Well, this is just my guess, but there has been a fair amount of foreshadowing about Haruo's autism in developing strategies to stop Godzilla, so I'm expecting to see an over the top plan that can stop a metal plant that can generate EMP. I think Haruo is the brains while his childhood friend is the ace pilot. They have to top the strategy at trying to trap him in the Himalayas.We might see Mechagodzilla, I think he's playing an important role in the trilogy. Yuko will probably pilot it at some point.
What would you do in a kaiju apocalypse, /m/? Try to flee for safety or down a bottle of sleeping pills and hope you die peacefully?
>>16029261>killing yourself instead of seeing a kaiju in person before you die a quick death by stomping
>>16029261>What would you do in a kaiju apocalypse, /m/? I would try my best to see one of the kaiju in person, even if it costs me my life. I'd try and maybe get on high ground and watch one from a distance. I'd also get really high
>>16029261I would try to fuck a kaiju somehow
>>16029142The singer sounds alot like Aimer but is called XAI and I can't find any info on herhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWzODJps8wQ
>>16029261I do my civic duty, and sign up with the EDF, of course.
>>16029318She's an 18 year old who just got signed by Toho's music label iirc. The movie's main theme is her debut single. She's fairly new which is why there is very little info on her
>>16029261Pay to see 'em and then wait til the world becomes too hard for me to live in and die. But I'd have to see then first. It'd be amazing.
>>16029142I'm actually getting kind of depressed of how shitty this movie is probably going to be, but it's not like I have any other weeb Godzilla content to look forward to.
Shin Godzilla aired on television for the first time over the weekend and attracted a huge crowd. Crazy how it still has so much hype behind it over a year later. Can Planet of the Monsters even meet expectations after the bar has been raised so high?
>>16029468>Can Planet of the Monsters even meet expectationsI haven't read a single expectation that expects it to be anything better than mediocre. If you've seen someone say they think it's going to be really good or something, I'd love to see it.
>>16029479I just imagine people expect more from a Godzilla movie now. They will not accept going back to the mundane affairs they've tolerated for quite some time now. And I think people would be more excited about this movie if it weren't for the lame CGI. But how did Blame do? Does anyone have numbers?
The first time I ever had sex was while watching Ghidorah, the three-headed monster. The volume was turned up really loud to mask any sounds we might make. Iirc it was the scene where Mothra was riding on Rodan's back and spraying web at Ghidorah while Godzilla held his tails. Mothra wasn't the only one about to spray something during that time
>>16029523why would you distract yourself in the middle of watching quality cinema like that
>>16029535I only lasted like a minute. Godzilla was still fighting when i wiped her belly off
>>16029517>Final Wars Gigan getting decapitated again
>Godzilla’s origins, too, differing from the “nuclear (bomb) test influence” up until now, are unknown/ambiguous. Made of muscle fiber strongly resembling metal, he’s a super evolved life form not spewing a a radioactive flame but firing a strong electromagnetism.HE IS NOT A PLANT, I REPEAT, HE IS NOT A PLANT
>>16028231When I was born.
>>16028644He's probably pulling a Grand King Ghidorah.
>>16030031>not a plant>only 50m tallwhy did people get so much shit wrong with this guy
>>16030046He's only 50 at the start of the monster outbreak.
>>16030031They are seriously completely stripping Godzilla of nuclear allegory? This feels very wrong... Even make him a radiated plant seems more thematically correct.
>>16030031>not spewing a a radioactive flame but firing a strong electromagnetismYou are alive to watch Godzilla be downgraded to a MUTO's power set.
>>16029479When the trilogy is done and over, it will surpass Shin or at least be on equal ground.
>>16028615>Godzilla takes up ventriloquism
>>16030065Most passionate opinion I've seen for this trilogy yet. We'll know about the first movie soon enough. The Japanese will certainly share the news.
Where is everyone getting these posts about monsters in the new movie?
Starting Daimajin Monster Of Terror, what am I in for?
>>16030676Translating them from japanese tweets and websites. It's why information is coming so slow. Very few of us can actually speak moon, but the ones that do are generous enough to translate some of the info for us.
>>16029261Join the kaiju and get humans off the top of the food chain. If guys like Red Letter Media and Channel Awesome wrongfully get to spew obvious falsehoods without Pai censoring them up then we deserve a kaiju apocalypse.
>>16029349Why would they choose an idol to sing a theme for a fucking Godzilla movie? It just seems so out of place
>>16030721She's not an idol. Idols in Japan are similar to contemporary singers, but they are a totally different thing and signed to different kind of labels.This girl is just some 18 year old girl signed by some record label affiliated with Toho, which is why she was chosen. Most anime movies released theatrically in Japan have an accompanying theme by a popular or up-and-coming singer. I agree a pop song would sound out of place in a live-action Godzila movie (ROG 84 actually had one) but this movie, despite being a Godzilla movie, is still an anime.
>>16028299Still better than being bullied at the Toho Kingdom forums until you have no desire to live anymore.
>>16030739just turn off the computer maybe?
>>16030764That does not work this day and age. You turn it ff, then what? And for how long? Where do you go from there?
>>16030812Literally anything else
>>16030739How the fuck can you get bullied at Toho Kingdom? Did they talk shit about your favorite kaiju or what? Said your favorite Toho movie sucks? Seriously, man...Of all the places to get "bullied" at
>>16030830I could see it. Doesn't change that it's a little on the pathetic side. But I bet it can happen, tk is very opinionated and pushy.
>>16030065It's nice to have hope anon.
>>16030721Several Godzilla movies had pop songs attached to them in the past. Godzilla vs Hedorah, Godzilla vs Gigan, Return of Godzilla, and Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla. I was a little surprised Shin Godzilla didn't have one since all of the Rebuilds featured a song by Hikaru Utada.
>>16031113That was during her hiatus
>>16029517>Jet Jaguar is trying his best.
>>16028621What makes you think it's about being lazy? It looks like Godzilla creates a field and then projects it out in front of him like a beam. That seems more like a stylistic choice to me.
>>16031505I was just taking the piss, but I don't like it.
>>16031509You might have a point. The main character is stuck with the same facial expression in the commercials I've seen
What godzilla movie should I watch tonight?
>>16031677vs The Smog Monsterthe AIP dubhttps://mega.nz/#!chJQyYbK!EYYMa3Lrdbesj63wCRT6Bq8ApfJ2q23q2TMtpseNYNk
>>16031705legit one of the best
>>16030056Godzilla's nuclear allegory was only relevant in the first film and Shin Godzilla. The rest of the movies just mention it as his orgin or completely squander the potential.
>>16031705>>16031790Son of Godzilla is legitimately a good movie and has the best ending in the franchise bar the original.
The novel seriously could have been in the novel or something. Watch.>King Caesar: Was last seen in 2040 fighting to protect refugees entering Okinawa, was presumably killed when several monsters swarmed him.
>>16031815>King Caesar could have been in the novelMy bad.
>>16031817Don't worry, most could understand what you were saying.
>>16031815I can do that.>Ghidorah: Emerged from a meteor that sunk Japan and proceeded to turn most of Asia into a barren wasteland before being killed by Godzilla.
>>16031815>>16031832>Ebirah: Was being a shithead in the Atlantic.
>>16031555I WAS LED TO BELIEVE YOUR SPECIES SURVIVED ENTIRELY ON NUCLEAR ENERGY. HOW IS HE SO FAT?
So why are we bothering calling him Anigoji not Ojigoji?
>>16031815>Slaughtered everything in Mexico
>>16031815>Gigan heavily slaughtered his way through most of Russia, before disappearing into the mist after leaving the last city in the country in ruin
>>16031986Chased out by the FLOCKS of Rodans.
>>16031815>Moguera: Mysteriously appeared in Japan and destroyed several fishing villages and a power plant, was destroyed by walking on a bridge rigged to explode. The parts of Moguera were scavenged by the G-Force and used to make their own M.O.G.U.E.R.A
>>16030739>Still better than being bullied at the Toho KingdomHahahahahahahaha How The Fuck Is Cyber Bullying At Toho Kingdom Real Hahahaha Nigga Just Read SciFiJapan Like Nigga Close Your Eyes Haha
>>16032313Well that explains how it was powerful enough to defeat Biollante. The one from Space Godzilla (made from scratch) was a joke compared to the original from The Mysterians. Making it into a sort of Kiryu thing using parts form the original makes a lot of sense.
>Jerry Seinfeld: Witnesses the 1999 attack on New York by Kamacuras. Manages to survive along wih his best friend, George Costanza. Unfortunately Elaine and Kramer are killed with Kamacuras collapses a building that they were in. It is unknown what happened to Jerry and George during the following years of kaiju attacks
Takayuki Hattori's score for the movie hit stores today. He previously worked on Vs SpaceGodzilla and Godzilla 2000.https://youtu.be/eqTb9Y41dbk
>>16032881The fuck is that gay ass font in the video title?
>>16032881>Godzilla, but with Dark Souls boss music
>>16032881That is the most Takayuki Hattori-sounding track I've heard since Intelligent Qube.
Is this still happening? Haven't heard anything about it in a long time. I figured they would have pounced on it after Shin's success
>>16032872>"what's the deal with all these giant monsters? Maybe they're mad because nothing fits them. No giant sized furniture, clothes, or homes. I'd be mad too!">*seinfeld bassline*
>>16033063I don't recall any movement after Shin.And yeah if Shin obliterating the box office like that didn't spur production I'm not sure what will.
>>16032872Truly Kafka-esque. Urobuchi is the writer of our generation
>>16033063Apparently it's been canned. The trailer that was shown at NYCC 2015 was a concept trailer that the director was trying to build up hype for with Daiei to make a movie and nothing more. It's unfortunate because the trailer itself was pretty great and got a really good reaction at the con.
>>16033113>And yeah if Shin obliterating the box office like that didn't spur production I'm not sure what will.Daiei usually waits until after Godzilla goes back into hibernation. See Gamera Super Monster, Gamera GOTU, and GtB.
>>16033292And any idea about this oddity?
>>16033743china ruins everything
I'm ready M... how bout u?
Also not sure this been posted here
>>16032881Well, from the creator interviews. Godzilla design concept was muscular, plant-like and with an aura of holiness so I think the theme fits. The modeling director took inspiration from Nio, so this is probably another urobutcher work that will have Buddhist undertones.
>>16033743>>16033748CG Ultraman with a moving mouth works surprisingly well
http://kaiju-design.comToo bad I don't speak space language.
>>16033862I notice Japanese artists often seem to gravitate towards Ultraman Kaiju design sensibilities when they think "kaiju", while western fans usually think Godzilla and co. Toru Narita's style had lasting impact over there.
>>16033862The name of the creature is Zenoris, and it comes from underground from the largest dome-shaped rock-mass in the world "Godzilla Megamullion" (which is an actual place), and lived in the Earth's mantle and it digs through it while standing 1,360,000 atmospheres and 3700 degrees of heat. He digs with diamond-like claws. His back side is covered with/in olivine and that is why it's green. It has the ability to regurgitate volcanic gas from its mouth at 100 kilometers per hour, burning everything in its location. It is the most powerful monster as old as the Earth at 4.5 billion years old.It definitely feels like an Ultra-kaiju.
>>16033748That was made by Tsuburaya though
I watched Final Wars for the first time in years. When I first watched it I thought it was ok, but after watching it again I realized it's terrible.
>>16034613>"I knew that tuna-head wasn't up to much!"
>>16034613Final Wars is weird since it's just an old Toho adventure movie featuring Godzilla and his pals.
>>16034613I tried re-watching it a few days ago and I couldn’t even make it to the Ebirah fight
>>16034613it's not godzilla enough for a good godzilla thingit's not kitamura enough for a good kitamura thingneeded Godzilla jumping on an ICBM and flipping off of it while Don Frye literally flies to kick Godzilla in the face in by shooting a bunch of guns behind him as a callback to vs The Smog Monster
Anyone else seen the Rampage trailer? Thoughts?
>>16035088Looks like a solid 43% on Rotten Tomatoes and another forgettable Dwanye Johnson flick
>>16035088I was excited until I saw the trailer. Fuckin quadruped Ralph what is this bullshit?
>Gaira: Took a shit on Poland in 2002 and a half.
>>16035349>Sanda: Got kicked out of Woodstock, 2099.
>Giant Bird: Was kicked in the balls at a Wendy's in Arizona in 2001.
>Yeti: Lost his keys in the Himalayas, bunked with cousin in Wisconsin, died of a cheese overdose.
>movie is out tomorrow>0 hype
>Swarmed all over India. Since they fucking worship rats there. For some fucking reason.
>Matango: Stole a kid's bike in Seattle.
>On vacation in Hawaii.
>Went to get his college degree in architecture
>>16035388Well it looks like shit. I'm still going to watch it out of desperation for nip Godzilla content though.
>Gigan: decapitated countless monsters and destroyed countless cities, it fled from the planet mere minutes after being discovered.
>GunHed: An actual Mech called G-HED is used in the novel.
>G-End: kicked Godzilla's ass twelve times, was destroyed by Godzilla throwing the corpses of monsters at it from a distance.
>Godzilla: fought Godzilla in Antarctica and won, but was buried in ice by the G-Force shortly thereafter. It will return and take the life of the other Godzilla.
>>16035467I'm not making this up. G-Hed is real.
Any spoilers from the film yet?
>>16035508Yeah, people who jizz over Shin Godzilla say the film sucks.
>>16035508There's a review:https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2017/11/15/films/film-reviews/godzilla-planet-monsters-japans-main-mutant-gets-animated-goes-global/#.Wg5pvqdJ-fK.link
>>16035510shin is better than 95% of the franchise anyways

Breakdown for Godzilla: Monster Planet Part 2(Spoilers):
>>16035670>>16035768This is supposed to be Mecha-G? It has a stronger resemblance to fucking Antlar from Ultraman.
>>16035772Not those anons, but rumors is that it's actually an alien Mechagodzilla.
>>16035756I don't like how he's one solid color. He reminds me of some cheap chinese bootleg toy you'd find at a flea market or something.

>On Friday, Netflix will make good on its promise to give the world its first taste of anime Godzilla. The streaming site will release Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters on November 17NANI?!!
>>16035805Source, also most likely wont be for US.
>>16035809Yeah, I think that's just them misunderstanding how the release will work.
Guess we will see
>>16035780There is only one Mechagodzilla and it was built by the Bilsard aliens.
>>16035851wow, i can't believe anime godzilla is only 50cm tall
Kamacuras appeared on the island of Manhattan on May 4, 1999, and proceeded to destroy the World Trade Center and devastate much of the city. Kamacuras continued moving northwest over 330 kilometers. At the same time, Kamacuras larvae appeared in the subway system under New York and preyed on people. Because Kamacuras appeared in a densely populated area, the military response was delayed, resulting in an estimated 2.5 million casualties. Kamacuras was finally destroyed 72 hours after making landfall using bunker buster bombs. After Godzilla raided the United States in the 2030's, the presence of multiple Kamacuras living in the U.S. was reported.
Dogora: Dogora was the second kaiju to appear on Earth. It first made contact with the Russian space station Mir in the atmosphere, then appeared over London in September 2002. Dogora absorbed thermal energy from the attacks of the British military and moved on to Manchester. Dogora was eventually defeated when chemical plants throughout the United Kingdom and European Union mass-produced chemicals containing active ingredients from spider venom and sprayed them into the air. By the time Dogora was defeated after two days, major landmarks such as the Tower of London and Big Ben were destroyed and an estimated 3.9 million people were wounded or killed
>>16035857>and proceeded to destroy the World Trade CenterKamacuras was ISIS? Fuck, didn't expect this.
The first Kamoebas appeared in the Philippines in 2002, just two days after Dogora's defeat. The second Kamoebas, designated "Kamoebas II," appeared in Guam. The fourth Kamoebas, Kamoebas IV, washed ashore dead on Odo Island in 2030, and was the first evidence for the existence of Godzilla.
The first Rodan emerged from Paektu Mountain in November 2005 and flew southwest to Beijing, where it was joined by Anguirus. Both monsters were exterminated by the Chinese bioweapon Hedorah, however after Godzilla attacked the Eurasian continent flocks of Rodans appeared and preyed on European refugees fleeing through Siberia.
The first Anguirus emerged from the frozen soil of Siberia in November of 2005 and traveled southeast to Beijing, where it joined Rodan. Both monsters were exterminated by the Chinese bioweapon Hedorah, but a second Anguirus, denoted "Anguirus II," emerged in South Africa the following year. A fourth Anguirus appeared from the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles alongside Baragon II and Varan II in 2030, and all three monsters were killed by Godzilla.
Hedorah originated as a colony of sludge-like microorganisms that consumed chemical substances in water. It was first discovered by the Chinese military inside a waste mine in Hebei, China in 1999, and subsequently studied in order to be converted into a bioweapon. Hedorah was finally unleashed to combat Rodan and Anguirus when they attacked Beijing in 2005. The colony reconfigured into a giant black mist-like figure with red and yellow eyes, and killed both monsters. However after this point Hedorah went out of control and destroyed Beijing and Tianjin overnight. It then disappeared after consuming all pollutants in the area.
Gabara was a 10 meter-long monster that lived in the Amazon rainforest and frequently slaughtered local wildlife. It was reported to have been injured in a thermite explosion and then fell into a river, where it was eaten by crocodiles and piranhas.
Dagahra was credited as the monster that caused mankind to lose the continent of Australia. Dagahra first appeared in late November of 2017, and made contact with the American nuclear submarine Seawolf at the point of 47 degrees 9 minutes south latitude, 126 degrees 43 minutes west longitude. Two weeks later, the U.S. Navy, including the USS Saratoga, engaged Dagahra in American Samoa and successfully injured him, but could not pursue him due to the presence of Barem in the water. Three days later Barem arrived at the port of Pago Pago, and eventually caused one-third of its inhabitants to die of bacterial infection. Two weeks later, on Christmas Day, Dagahra approached Australia, but the Australian Navy did not attack out of fear of releasing Barem into Australian waters. Dagahra made landfall in Sydney and devastated the city before moving on to Newcastle. The government was thrown into chaos and in the confusion gave the ill-advised order to attack Dagahra. Dagahra was fatally wounded and flew out to sea, where it died and contaminated the surrounding waters with huge numbers of Barem. This led to a pandemic and famine later known as the "Red Christmas Scourge," which by 2018 claimed the lives of 3 million people. Australia's waters became heavily polluted by the Barem, and it received no foreign aid and eventually collapsed. An estimated 6.7 million people were killed or wounded in Dagahra's attack.
In December 2017, several Barem were released into the ocean during a confrontation between Dagahra and the United States Navy in the waters near American Samoa. The presence of Barem prevented the Navy from pursuing Dagahra after he fled. Three days later the Barem arrived at the port of Pago Pago, and caused one-third of the city's inhabitants to die of bacterial infection. When Dagahra was fatally wounded by the Australian military on Christmas Day, he flew out to sea and died, releasing countless Barem into Australian waters. These Barems not only infected Australian citizens with a terrible plague, but heavily polluted Australia's waters and killed the majority of marine life around Australia, in an event that would come to be known as the "Red Christmas Scourge" and claim 3 million lives.
Orga landed in Turkey on May 11, 2022. At that time Turkey had accepted a great number of refugees that had fled Africa, with Orga's landing point of İzmir possessing the largest refugee camp. The military's response was delayed, and the monster reached Ankara before it was finally defeated. Officially only 1.15 casualties were reported from the attack, making it a relatively minor kaiju disaster, however the death toll likely exceeded 10 million if refugee deaths were taken into account.
Megalon was credited as the monster that caused mankind to lose the continent of Africa. Megalon landed on the west coast of Africa in 2012 and crossed the continent, destroying several small nations along the way. Megalon returned in 2022 and destroyed the Republic of South Africa.
The Griffon attacked Cairo, Egypt in June of 2021, but was defeated.
Gezora appeared in the Mediterranean in the latter half of the 2010's and hindered refugee movement out of Europe.
The Giant Octopus lived in the Pacific Ocean, where it sank several fishing and transport vessels every year.
Ganimes appeared in the Bering Sea and attacked American crab fishing vessels.
Manda appeared in the Atlantic Ocean in 2022, and continuously terrorized it for more than a decade. In 2039 humanity launched "Operation: Eternal Light" to regain control of the Atlantic from the kaiju. Manda was engaged and destroyed by the Gotengo in the Strait of Dover as part of this operation.
Multiple individual Varans appeared, but the second individual denoted "Varan II" came ashore in Los Angeles in 2030 along with Baragon II and Anguirus IV after they were attacked by Godzilla in the Pacific Ocean. All three kaiju were then killed by a single blast of Godzilla's beam.
It was goodTrailer godzilla is not originalThey kill trailer godzilla then sugita goes “nah that’s not the original godzilla” and Original pops out of a mountain and fucks everyone over instantlyHaruo rescued by people who survived on earth
The second Baragon, denoted "Baragon II," washed up in Los Angeles in 2030 after being attacked by Godzilla in the Pacific Ocean, alongside Anguirus IV and Varan II. All three monsters were subsequently killed by a single blast of Godzilla's beam.

Maguma attacked and destroyed North Korea in 2024, then began moving south and approaching Seoul, South Korea. The United States launched a tactical nuclear missile at Maguma and destroyed it, marking the first use of a nuclear weapon against a kaiju.
Kumonga lived in the United States in the 2030's alongside several Kamacuras following Godzilla's rampage through the nation.
Megaguirus was one of several kaiju that menaced the world during the 21st century.
Biollante was a new species that appeared off the coast of Normandy in September of 2039. G-Force battled Biollante when it arrived in Normandy as part of "Operation: Eternal Light," but its weapons were ineffective against Biollante due to her incredible regenerative ability. Biollante was finally defeated when the underground combat vehicle Moguera destroyed the "heart" in her root cavity.
Is this from something or just cringy fanfiction?
>>16035925Might be moreSmaller one fought in trailer is exactly same as the one that attacked 19,000 years agoThey kill it and Sugita points out there’s no way a lifeform would stay stagnant for that long a periodOriginal pops out of a mountain and shoots supersonic waves out of his mouth and beam blades out of his tail everyone dies
Original only uses heat ray in flashbackJunior’s heat ray does not seem to be shot from mouth, looks more like focusing and firing a barrier
>>16035936Probably the prequel novel which I need to go readOpening has 2D stills of that stuff, kamakuras and orga show prominently
Zilla appeared in France and was brought down by the French military, who initially misidentified the creature as Godzilla due to it being bipedal and possessing back fins and a long tail. However, Zilla possessed the ability to reproduce asexually, and its offspring quickly overran the city of Rouen, which had managed to escape the wrath of Godzilla himself. Even though an adult Zilla was considerably more frail than most kaiju, able to be brought down with a single shot from a Maser Cannon or railgun, its greatest strength was its fertility. If just one egg was left behind, hundreds more Zillas could be born and overrun the city again. The Zillas were also intelligent and capable of working in herds, younger ones would draw the attention of tanks while adults attacked from the rooftops. Zilla was mentioned to be the hardest kaiju to free a city from.
Gorosaurus: Gorosaurus appeared in Paris after the city was destroyed by Godzilla. He was killed in December 2039 by the combined efforts of G-Force and the Bilsards.
>>16035948Why? This is from the Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse Novel.
Film was surprisingly conventional, could be compared to Skull Island Land on Earth, get fucked by smaller monsters before titual one shows up, big plan to take big one down (except it succeeds), also surprise there are people who survived thereSakurai spends the whole movie being suspicious and is probably the mastermind of something
Jet Jaguar: Though not appearing as his normal self, the suits the G-Force wears were called Type-38 Mobile Combat Uniform 'Jaguar J'.
MechaGodzilla: One of the alien races are building something at the base of Mt. Fuji using space titanium. Confirmed to take place in the next movie.
GunHed: Thought not appearing truly, a mech unit called G-HED is mentioned.
>>16035940sounds lazy. Does he fight any other kaiju?
Godzilla: In 2030, biology professor Kyohei Yamane traveled to Odo Island to investigate the carcass of Kamoebas IV, which had washed ashore there. Yamane concluded that Kamoebas had been killed by a larger predator, which he named "Godzilla" after a legendary dragon from the island's folklore. Godzilla made landfall for the first time later that year on the west coast of the United States, where he killed Anguirus IV, Varan II, and Baragon II. By December of 2031, it was estimated that Godzilla had caused 8.7 million casualties in the U.S. In 2034, Godzilla caused an estimated 6 million casualties when he attacked western Europe. By 2044, Godzilla had caused upwards of an estimated 300 million casualties worldwide. In 2045, the United Earth, in cooperation with the Exifs and Bilsards, initiated "Operation: Great Wall," where 2,000 nuclear warheads were detonated simultaneously to open a large fault near the Himalayas, trapping Godzilla. However, a year later Godzilla used his atomic breath to free himself. By the time the remnants of humanity evacuated Earth aboard the Aratrum in 2048, Godzilla was estimated to have killed nearly 200 million people in the Eurasian continent, nearly 100 million in Japan alone, leaving only approximately 700 million people left to evacuate the planet.
>>16035854I can't believe there's more then one Godzilla.
>>16035958>get actual spoilers>drown it own with flood of shit that’s been posted a million timesFuck off
>>16035976Fuck off, the new updated versions on how many they killed and where they appeared are new.
>>16035961how is godzilla?
Novel stuff barely mentioned I’ll have to check it out whn I fet home>>16035975Shorter one didn’t really feel like 50 but not much around for scale but the alien looking godzilla trees so eh
>>16035983Weird but I liked himSakurai says countless civilizations in the Universe have been wiped out by similar cases of one monster popping up and killing everyone and he seems to be plotting somethingMight be connected to ththe space elf religion
>>16035987would you say the film is better then we were expecting?
>>16035991Who’s “we”It’s mostly what I expected only a bit more conventionalI’d say it’s better than most Godzilla films but I also say Heisei Gamera is better than all Godzilla films except the original and Shin
>>16035985So is the one from the novel the smaller one?
Also the fins don’t glow, electricity shows up around them and they’re illuminated by it
>>16035937>beam blades out of his tail Looks like a new TV trailer spoiled this, gifs up on twitter
>Sega released two Godzilla plushes and a servumThe clue was under our nose the entire time.
It’s in the pastebin but yeah, booklet says the official name for junior is “Godzilla Filius”And yeah looks like godzilla can just split into more godzillas
>>16036130>Godzilla "The Son"
>>16035980get cancer and die
>>16035756He just looks way too much like burger Godzilla to me. I wonder if Amazon forced them to design it based on that.Also >>16035781
>>16035961It's conventional because the anime was originally a one cour anime before they decided to make it a trilogy. Every movie is roughly 4 episodes. Urobuchi writes his works in the same structure, so the end would be the first turning point but the thematic core of the series is in the second and third movies.
>>16036130How obnoxious is the main character in this? And how good is the CG?Because those are the main complaints most people had after watching the trailer.
heres a thing
>>16036241Suck a cock.
I just saw the movie in Osaka last night. Movie was pretty alright. I was very drunk when I saw it though. I remember most of the characters being kind of flat and uninteresting. 'cept for the aliens.
>>16028069how often was that suit even used i wonder?
so its been a minute for me, is the Novel its own story or is it a novelization?
>>16028762>>16028760>Zilla getting decent repneat, always had a soft spot for him since the 98 film introduced me to Kaiju
>>16029517>mundane affairs they've tolerated for quite some time now>mundane>affairs
>>16030705>If guys like Red Letter Media and Channel Awesome wrongfully get to spew obvious falsehoods without Pai censoring themwhut
>>16030705Fuck off, Alien Hulk.
>>16028069>Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters hits Japanese theaters on November 17This looks awesomeBlu Ray when?
>>16037423>I don’t understand japanese why are japanese scifi movies so boring wahhhhh
>>16037549Other reviews are saying the same thing. It's your typical Godzilla flick with middling characters but decent action.
>>16037549I can understand moon just fine. I've been living here for 5 years. The characters are pretty typical anime characters. The only interesting ones were the aliens
>>16037549>>16037609>>16037629Haruo is decently established and Sakurai does a decent job of acting suspicious but otherwise nobody gets anything at all.
