A new poster has arrived for the final film in the controversial Godzilla Anime Trilogy. The final film, directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita, arrives in Japanese theaters November 9th. The latest poster depicts a very different incarnation of King Ghidorah tangling with the King of the Monsters. Below the kaiju battle appears to be Metphies holding an unconscious Haruo.

The previous film, City on the Edge of Battle, came under fire due to its misleading marketing regarding the appearance of MechaGodzilla. Still, many fans hope that King Ghidorah will actually... appear in the latest film.

What do you think of the poster? What are your feelings toward this new incarnation and design of King Ghidorah? What do you think will happen at the trilogy's conclusion?

The film stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (BleachOne Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children), Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super) and Ari Ozawa (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun). The film is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).

Tentatively translated as, Godzilla: The Planet Eater, the movie hits Japanese theaters November 9th, 2018. It drop on Netflix worldwide sometime after.

The film's prequels, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters and
Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle are currently streaming on Netflix worldwide.

Glad to see my forum post made the news so quickly! ^-^

Anyways, like many parts of the anime trilogy, this is looking to be a radical new take on an old character.

I'm not sure how to respond to the design. You expect King Ghidorah to shoot Gravity Beams, not become them. It looks like Godzilla is fighting multiple Manda rather than Ghidorah. Whatever, It's anime. I've seen worse anime. I'll give it a shot. It'll at least pass the time until Godzilla King of the Monsters

But there's a problem when the character is a barely recognizable bastard. I was intrigued (And somewhat annoyed, but I swallowed my pride) by the designs and concepts presented in the anime, but they've done nothing interesting with them. They're not integrated into the characters at all. If you can even call them anything other than set pieces at that size and level of inactivity and ineffectiveness. The opposite is true of fanboys. If you just think that everything that comes out is good: you lose. Look at the alien and predator fandoms, of which I am die hard member. Quantity over quality.

I don't know, does this Ghidorah even have a body? Is it even one being? It seems to be three separate kaiju. 

I am no fan of the Godzilla design, but it didn't break me. I thought the Severum (or whatever the hell they were called) could be interesting but then they showed up, what once? Twice? Now this? I agree with the many people who've already said it, it looks like three glowing Manda, not a King Ghidorah. Unless the actual design is far from this (though if it is, what is the point of this poster?!) I'm done with this trilogy. The only good thing that's come out of them were the novels, and we don't even have a translation for them!

The King of the Monsters

The poster is only showing Ghidorah's necks peeking through what look like wormholes or portals. He's so massive that just his necks poking through portals dwarf Godzilla Earth. He most likely inhabits a higher dimension, and those portals are how he enters our plane and fights Godzilla. A short brochure for the film distributed in theaters in Japan shows a silhouette of what looks like Ghidorah's full body, and it appears to have wings and two tails. It's entirely possible this Ghidorah still has the character's classic body shape, we're just only seeing his necks and heads.


MemberTitanosaurusSep-16-2018 12:42 PM

^you make a point. Plus the official synopsis says that the war moves to a higher dimension. I'm also finding websites referring to Ghidorah as the God of the Void in the anime. Like I said, I'm willing to give it a chance. It'll hold me over until G:KotM

Jaysus firetrucking Mr. Christie, he's somehow EVEN MORE OF A MONSTER THAN GODZILLA.
