Kaneki and Shin Godzilla
ok @leon-crack, you asked me about Kaneki looking like a kaijuu in Pacific Rim, but my ask box deleted it. I see the pacific rim connection, but I feel like a lot of what’s happening in TG right now reminds me of another movie…
Not just Godzilla, but Shin Godzilla, which came out in Japan last year.
The similarities are ASTOUNDING.
I’m not surprised to see them, considering how popular this film was in Japan! The whole movie is a metaphor for the nuclear disaster that occurred in Japan a few years back, when the nuclear power plants malfunctioned. But Godzilla in this movie is SO SIMILAR to Dragon!!!
Check this out:
Get a load of this wiggly buddy. This is Kamata, the first stage of Godzilla in the movie. Crawling around Tokyo like a worm? Destroying everything in his path? Reminds me of a certain white-haired protagonist…
Our current Dragon even shares a similar silhouette!
Anyway, Kamata later evolves multiple times until we reach our main man, Shin Godzilla.
In another parallel to Kaneki, his head also resembles Dragon. Honestly though, it’s the end of his tail that’s the most fascinating.
Ah, look at that! The end of Shin Godzilla’s tail is
disgusting just like something else we’ve seen!
LOOK AT THIS FUCKIN THING!
Oh, but that’s not where the parallels end, my friends. Because the end of Shin Godzilla is a mindfucker. Hideaki Anno, the man behind Evangelion, is the one who directed it after all.
At the end of the movie, Shin Godzilla ends up…turning into a bunch of these.
OH MY FUCKIN GOD LIL TINY HUMANOID REPLICAS OF A GIANT MONSTER WHERE THE HELL HAVE I SEEN THAT BEFORE
So anyway, I have a theory.
I don’t think this will be the only stage Dragon has. If Ishida is taking some inspiration from Shin Godzilla, we may be in for a couple more, even more devastating evolutions of Dragon before we see what happens with these. little husks pouring out of it. Kaneki in his final form will be fucking nuclear if this happens. Like atomic bomb destructive. Nuclear disaster destructive.
This is why I can’t calm down about this chapter. We’ll see what happens!
As usual with my theories, I hope I’m wrong! :)
