    I’m looking forward to the new Big G also. I’ve also been a fan since i was a little kid so all the little details, the classic roar, the old music, are all gold to me. When the Big G fights KK he better kick the apes butt. I’m sure they will have some drama but i’m still not over G getting chased off by KK in the 70’s. The big ape is only really good for mining Element X for shadowy super villains.

    I have enjoyed the new anime series even if it is 1:30 hours of movie stretched to 3 hours so far.Report

  2. This is an amazing piece!! I loved it. Never knew all the backstory, really appreciate it!Report

  3. Great piece! I wrote a similar one for OT a few years ago, though it’s more of a personal essay:

    My father’s second wife was Japanese and brought a young son to the marriage. One year, my wife and I were doing Christmas shopping and we were trying to find something for Eddie. We passed a display of plastic giant reptile monsters. One of them was Godzilla. I reached for it, remarking: “Japanese kids love Godzilla.” My wife gave me a look, and I grabbed another, less recognizable monster.
    When we opened presents, Eddie looked at what we had brought and said: “Oh, boy, just like Godzilla!”Report
