Japan Thinks The New Godzilla Should Hit The Treadmill

Japan Thinks the New Godzilla Should Hit The Treadmill

Hollywood's latest take on Godzilla is hitting theatres next month, and while we've already heard some of Japan's response to the new and improved giant city-destroying monster, that was before they got a full picture. So what do they think of him now?

From Japan's largest internet forum, 2ch, while some think positively of the new design, the overwhelming response is that the king of monsters has been hitting the twinkies a little hard in his off time.

Did he get fat?

His neck looks like an American football athlete's.

Is this Sin from Final Fantasy X?

Out of shape Godzilla

He's gone Supersize Me.

That's what happens when all you do is eat and lay around.

Did he gain weight?

He got beefed up from the radiation at Fukushima


He's pudgy and cute.

He looks better than the previous Hollywood Godzilla

He's got no neck...

He looks like a komodo dragon

While the commenters are piling it on a little harsh about Zilla's figure, Matt Frank, artist for IDW's Godzilla: Rulers of Earth comic and long-time kaiju fanatic, had a counter-argument on the big guy's size. Said Frank, "It's a little ridiculous for anyone in Japan to complain that 'the American Godzilla is fat' - after all, he definitely had a heavy phase in the Heisei Era...."

... True that.

I guess we'll be able to pass final judgment when the new Godzilla movie hits theatres on May 15.

    I'm with the second guy, I thought that was Sin for a moment.

    It's not made in Japan, therefore it's terrible. That is the Japanese mindset when it comes to many things. Because it's not their Godzilla, they are going to use tiny reason to trash it.

      While you're certaintly not wrong there lets not forget that this is taken from 2ch...

    Well he is a frigging Komodo dragon. In the 98 Godzilla movie, that was shown extensively - Komodo dragon eggs are getting irradiated. To me it just seems logical that he looks like a Komodo dragon.

      There is no such thing as a 98 Godzilla movie.
      I will forget you mentioned such a thing.
