A surprisingly nuanced movie about a giant monster
For the 33rd movie about a gigantic Monster destroying Tokyo... it's surprisingly heartfelt and full of human drama. An excellent exploration of an unexplored part of Japanese history.

Its Kaiju time…AGAIN!!! Get ready to destroy some cities, this time its back to Tokyo in the 1940s! In this Japanese language epic we see the rise of Godzilla in the late 1940s. This human lead drama is set against the backdrop of Post-war Japan; a country living in the shadow of the atomic destruction wrought upon it.
Our not-so kamikaze crew for this show is Dion, Pethra, Jirru and the Kaiju himself, Quinzilla!
Also HUGE shout out to Jill for her beautiful Japanese introduction!
Feeling as if he unfairly cheated death too many times, Shikishima, a surviving Kamikaze pilot is attacked on Odo Island along with many war plane engineers by a gargantuan monster. After the engineers die due to Shikishima failing to distract the monster, an overwhelming amount of guilt weighs on him, especially after a homeless woman and a baby move into his home when he returns. Shikishima, now on a personal mission, teams up with a large group of veterans to finally take down the monster known as Godzilla.
