On November 3rd, 1954, a monster was unleashed upon the world. Now, 60 years later, Godzilla has a whopping 30 films under his belt along with countless video games, cartoon series, comics, books, toy lines, and so much more.
Godzilla means the world to me. I’ve been a Godzilla fan since I was able to talk. And I’ll continue being a G-Fan until the day I die. It’s just incredible that, six decades later, Godzilla is still going, strong as ever. It’s just amazing.
I don’t share much of my art online, mostly because I’m not much of an artist, but I was determined to do something for Godzilla’s 60th. This was the result. I was messing around with a few ideas until I was drawing the Oxygen Destroyer and some bubbles when it hit me. And now I never want to draw or even see a circle again. ;)
Happy Birthday, big guy. Here’s to another 60 years.
More new photos of Shin Gojira (aka Godzilla Resurgence) have surfaced.
While its easy to make jokes, I’m on board with the idea that this look could serve more of a purpose than just looking different. He looks damaged, like he’s been through hell. Maybe beaten to hell? Maybe…coming back from hell? Could this be the original Goji that was killed by the oxygen destroyer, somehow regenerating and coming back to life? Something that was destroyed like that wouldn’t reform perfectly like footage played in reverse. This could be cooler than you think.
This is one of my favorite Godzilla movies, if not my absolute favorite. The emotion captured in this film is uncanny: the cameo by Momoko Kochi playing her old role as Emiko Yamane; the flashback to Dr. Serizawa; the entire thread with Junior; the relationship between Miki and her work with Junior and Godzilla; and finally, Godzilla’s epic death and Junior’s rebirth, symbolizing Godzilla’s immortality. Beautiful. Epic. Really needs a good blu-ray release with re-mastered sound, proper dubs and proper subs.
Not sure if you've done any of the command typing on the M.U.T.O Research site, but I've noticed people posting which commands get which responses and I haven't seen anyone mention one that I just discovered. I thought it was probably of note. When you type "Destroyer of Worlds" it responds with '3181811XX 9XX0 Serizawa'.
Sort of. The website only responds to the first word you type; all others are irrelevant. However, the fact that both “oxygen” and “destroyer” elicit the “3181811XX 9XX0 SERIZAWA (SXA-Q11-XC)” response is… interesting, to say the least. Others have reported on these two prompts from the beginning, so it’s not a new addition to the program; somehow it just escaped my notice. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. :)
Now, judging from the wry humor and references to the entire stable of Toho kaiju, mutoresearch.net isn’t meant as canon, so I wouldn’t run through the metaphorical streets shouting “OXYGEN DESTROYER CONFIRMED” just yet. But we know that Serizawa is in the movie, and suddenly that HALO jump is looking an awful lot like Ogata and Serizawa’s descent into Tokyo Bay from the first Godzilla movie…
