Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is Now on Netflix!

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is Now on Netflix!

Godzilla, King of the Monsters, has returned for his 32nd film overall (30th from Toho)! Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is the first animated Godzilla film directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).

You can watch the full movie, the first of a trilogy, on Netflix now! And don't forget to review the film in our database by clicking here!

In the year 2048, a select few humans are chosen by the central government's artificial intelligence to set out on an interstellar emigration vessel, the Aratrum, on an 11.9-light-year journey for the planet Tau Ceti e. But when they arrive after 20 years of space travel, the remnants of mankind find the environmental conditions on Tau-e to be much worse than expected, and uninhabitable by humans.

On board the vessel is a young man, Haruo. When he was four years old, he saw his parents killed by Godzilla before his eyes, and in the 20 years since he has thought about nothing but returning to Earth and defeating Godzilla. With their chance for escape to another world closed, and living conditions on the ship deteriorating, Haruo spearheads a movement to return to Earth despite the dangers of such a long return trip.

Somehow, the Aratrum makes the return journey in one piece, but the home they return to has become an alien planet. 20,000 years have elapsed, and a new ecosystem has emerged with Godzilla at its apex. Can mankind take back its native planet? Will Haruo get his revenge?

The final summer of the 20th century… when mankind learned it is no longer the sole ruler of planet Earth.

The planet is beset by the emergence of colossal creatures that roam the Earth, and king among them is "Godzilla". For a half a century, these beasts engage in ferocious battle with each other and mankind. Ultimately humanity, unable to compete, prepares for exile from its home planet.

The sequel, currently translated as Godzilla: Decisive Battle, Mobile Breeder City, hits Japanese theaters May, 2018.

I found enjoyable. I don't think a proper opinion of it can be made until the 2nd/3rd film is released. I;m excited to see where it goes from here.

I’ll be watching it this weekend, but from what I’ve seen and read it looks like a good movie. 

(Would you guys recommend the subtitles or dubbed version?)

^I would start with sub. A lot of famous Japanese voice actors from other anime were in this movie. Though, it's really your choice. You should choose whatever you think will make it more enjoyable. And watch through the credits ;)

i enjoyed it - watched it 2x already.  It is not great, but a good start and I am interested to see where it goes.  My only disappointments were godzilla was a bit static and when they give Godzilla's weight as 100,000 tons. 

I don't want to spoil anything, but it did answer some questions I had from the trailers (and made some more - which is good for a trilogy).

I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would like it. Not a huge fan of anime(there are a few exceptions: DBZ, Akira, Vampire Hunter D, FLCL) but I really enjoyed this movie. My biggest complaint is that the servum looked so stiff. They could have been a great part of the film but(imo) they really brought it down. It was a cool idea, but porrly executed.

Did anyone else notice that the aboriginal's hair (her bangs) resembles a leaf? I assume that is intentional and that s she is not simply a surviving human.
