Weird paradox: because Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is going to be fairly quickly and extremely readily available to English audiences–and because this was confirmed at the very start–fans seem somehow more irritated that it isn’t available at this very instant.
Quoth the fans: REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
When Shin Godzilla came out, people seemed more patient, understanding that this was a Japanese film in Japanese theaters and that we might somewhere down the road get a camrip, US theater run, and/or a home video release.
But now that we’re getting the film streamed right into our homes probably in a couple months? I’m seeing a lot of whining and people demanding links to watch it the very day it debuted in Japan. Do people not remember that Shin’s theatrical run was rather limited, and a lot of people couldn’t see it even then? This time Anime Godzilla is going to be everywhere in high quality with subtitles once it’s out. It’s easily the fastest, highest quality, most widely available Godzilla release from Japan we’ve ever seen.
Isn’t that good enough?
