There's a Godzilla animated movie coming out on Netflix. I don't know if there are a lot of Godzilla fans here. Also discussion on previous godzilla cartoons like Godzilla TAS from the 90's. Also Godzilla is now a plant monster in the movie
Godzilla animated movie and Kaiju cartoons
There's also an official website for the film though its in Japanese. And google translate isn't always that reliable. godzilla-anime.com
Honestly, I'm nervous on the one hand I've always wanted a Godzilla animated movie and wished there was more animated stuff out there for him but I don't know how to feel about him being a plant monster.
Found some translatable bits on the site:
Ever since it was first released as a feature film in 1954, “Godzilla” has come to be a colossal cultural icon loved by millions around the world. The 2016 release of “SHIN GODZILLA”, directed by Hideaki Anno, reinvigorated the franchise, bringing a completely novel and realistic depiction of the iconic monster story, which earned 82.5 million dollars at the box-office and captured the imagination of new and old fans alike. Now in 2017, “Godzilla” continues to surprise everyone along a new evolutionary path as a feature-length animated film.
“GODZILLA” the animated movie takes the franchise into the uncharted territory of a future world in which Godzilla has dominated the earth for the past 20,000 years with mankind as diaspora, culminating in a fateful final confrontation.
Directing is Kobun Shizuno whose theatrical realize of “Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare” last year grossed 63.3 million dollars, the highest attendance ever for that famed franchise. He is joined by another proven talent on the cutting edge of computer graphics, Hiroyuki Seshita, as director and executive director of recently-topical anime including “Knights of Sidonia” ('14) and “Ajin” ('16) Penning both the story and screenplay is Gen Urobuchi of “PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA” ('11) and “Psycho-Pass” ('12), a writer known to his large and loyal fan base as a master of meticulous and unpredictable storytelling laced with powerful ideas. Finally, handling the production is 3-consecutive Emmy award winning Japanese 3DCG animation studio, Polygon Pictures, which produced “Knights of Sidonia” and “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” on U.S. television earning Outstanding Special Class Animated Program at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
Prepare for the earth-shattering roar of a brand new “GODZILLA”, unlike anything heard or seen before.
The final summer of the 20th century… when mankind learns it is no longer the sole ruler of planet Earth.
The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the earth, and king among them is “Godzilla”. For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. But humans, unable to compete, prepare for exile from their home planet. In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government's artificial intelligence infrastructure to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-lightyear journey for the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much different than expected, and basically uninhabitable by humans.
On youth on board the emigration vessel, Haruo, had seen his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes when he was only 4 years old. Ever since, he has thought of nothing but returning to Earth to defeat Godzilla. With the doors to emigration now closed, Haruo and other crew spearhead a “return to Earth” decision despite severely attenuated and hazardous conditions on board for such a long trip back.
Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged withatop the food chain. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?
Regarding the plant monster thing it seems like they're being "inspired" by Blue Gender.
fatso with tiny stumpy arms and shrunken head
i hate these americanized godzillas
also, shin godzilla was pure shit asides from the part where godzilla cuts several skyscrapers in half with his laser breath
There's a Godzilla animated movie coming out on Netflix.
Also Godzilla is now a plant monster in the movie
This is a completely Japanese production, how stupid are you?
No one cares what you think user.
Shill somewhere else
Can we have one fuckin thread on this board where the first five posts don't involve someone being called a shill or a damn argument?
I want a proper animated Godzilla series.
Classic origin of him being a dinosaur either awoken/mutated or both by nuclear weaponry. And it would pretty much have episodes that fit all the Toho films together either with flashbacks of Kaiju fights that fill in back story or the same plots and fits taking place during modern day depending on which fits better.
Xiliens would be both recuring and the final antagonists.
That sounds cool. I was hoping for a Godzilla cartoon series in the vein of AEMH where they take all the monsters and stories from the films and introduce some new ones. Maybe they might even include Zilla as a cameo.
Godzilla is a plant
Godzilla animated movie
coming out on Netflix.
Godzilla is a misunderstood female creature wrongly attacked by evil white cishet men
Why the fuck is Godzilla a plant?
I thought this was a purely Japanese production?
I dunno. It's Japanese but I heard Toho gave the studio free reign essentially. THe concept of him being a part of the planet as a plant could work if he evolved that way in the far future but the plant hing is current unfortunately. Maybe he's possessed by Biollante.
Godzilla is a (…) female creature
I got pics of female Godzilla human pics but I don't know if that would derail the thread since I was hoping for discussion.
I'd rather have discussion.
Nobody wants it.
tfw no qt kaiju gf
tfw there was gonna be a Godzilla movie in 1956 where he falls in love with a giant feminine robot who survived his atomic breath
said robot was gonna lure Godzilla into a cave and blow up due to having a hydrogen bomb in her
I will save the board by being assdamaged over one off posts that everyone else would've ignored
That sounds ridiculous and I'm sad it wasn't made.
Goji is 300 meters tall (984ft) in this movie, btw
Aaah yes, post more of that Gojira, pretty please.
Stop talking to yourself user
Perhaps with a touch of Godzilla The Series put in, a human team what follows Godzilla, and Godzilla having a not-entirely-hostile look on mankind. Still should be the angriest son-of-a-bitch on the planet, though. Cities should be razed late in the season when he gets mad enough, whereupon the world's militaries become a serious threat. Until Godzilla starts getting mad and radfueled enough to break reality in little ways.
accuse me of samefagging
don't even link both posts
Are you scared that multiple people can have tastes different to yours, Mr. Autistic?
I prefer Godzilla as not directly malevolent towards mankind, just somewhat completely indifferent towards the death and suffering of us whether he caused it or not.
I loved all the weapons and mechs the Japs would make to combat kaiju, especially the Maser Cannons.
The original Minya was retarded I liked Godzilla jr. better, but I was always happy that despite being an apocalyptic radioactive aberration full of bitter resolve Godzilla was still a devoted father.
butthurt much, autismo?
Got a source on that?
Sounds interesting. I had this idea where the kaiju came back as a result of WW3 and some of the nations of the world tried to use them as weapons to have it backfired on them.
I was wondering what it would be like when Godzilla's son took over his fathers mantle. Godzilla is somewhat negative to humans for what they did to him but his son seems more receptive to them. Would be interesting.
no pics of her scissoring with Mothra
Reading that sounds hilarious.
Yout 40 posts too late
300m would make him a big guy
So I ask, "and"?
How was that cartoon anyway?
godzilla vs king kong
a gorillon meters
Ranged from alright to terrible on an episode-by-episode basis.
Oh yeah. This being in the era where they all thought superscience was right around the corner, Japan would pull out all the stops to fight the kaiju. And the thing is, if you watch the Heisei films, you'll see them get better at it with time. Remember the three Super-X Flying Tanks?
Yeah, I'd get that idea from him too. Apart from that one guy being mean to him, he's had a good relationship with humanity. I could see him being used in a pseudo-superheroic fashion, trying his best to avoid the buildings and trains as he fights the latest asshole kaiju. Speaking of that, I like the idea of some monsters tending towards good (Mothra) and evil (Space Godzilla) with angry animals plus character like the Big G inbetween. Godzilla vs DESUTROYAH wouldn't be the same without the titular kaiju being a colossal sadist and murdering Junior, after all, and Godzilla occasionally needs a conscience.
Would be fun if China or someone tried to shackle King Ghidorah, only to discover that he was never really controlled in the old days: he just went along with it because he was bored, and wanted a rematch with Godzilla.
Wow that was interesting to read. I wonder why we don't have those sorts of threads over here. The closest I can think of is the one with the Cartoon Network characters as actual actors.
There's nothing stopping you from starting those types of threads, user.Just make sure it's on topic.
Do it, then. Add monsters to the list.
Have another, slightly less cool thing in the meantime.
ok then fam. Just out of curiosity what do people here think of Matt Frank's artwork?
I started a thread for the kaiju actors history if you guys want. hollaforums.com
Well ain't that some intense /monster/ material.
The guy who did the art for pic and does the art for the IDW Godzilla comics. He originally got his start doing his Neo-Godzilla drawings on deviantart.
I like it. The art's detailed without being too grim and gritty.
SpessGodzilla and Ghidorah(?) are smug bitches
/xen/index.html (and sometimes /chaos/index.html) for those tired of seeing humans wearing cheap monster cosplay.
THAT WASN'T AN INVITATION, SCALEFAG
What happened to the old spoiler?
I was eating
get the fuck out
you sick fuck!
all these fellers surprised or even disgusted
Kinda surprising in itself.
furfags not wanted
So how would you guys do your own Godzilla series given the chance? Would you crossover with Gamera or just reference him?
Ignore and report the furry porn spammer for derailing.
Judging from those pics I wonder if the CG animation is going to be stiff.
honestly I rarely get to use that gif in a Goji related thread and the furfag gave me an excuse to use it while staying relatively on topic.
Y'know it's funny. With the Godzilla movies in both America and Japan coming out I thought Gamera might get a comeback but all we got was that trailer and no movie in sight. Still hoping a Godzilla vs Gamera movie might happen.
