Presenting STUDIO GHIBLI’s first live action kaiju short film

Commissioned by Neon Genesis Evangelion director Anno Hideaki. Directed by key Eva artist Hijuchi Shinji. Monster design by Hayao Miyazaki.

A stellar combination without a doubt.

The tokusatsu’s title is Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo (Kyōshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru) and was originally created for a museum exhinition.

I actually kinda find the effects cheesy but from what I’ve read, the film was really aiming for an old-school feel. And despite I barely understand the narration, I am touched by the film’s tone. That, and thoroughly amused by people just standing calmly while taking pictures as the monster tears through the city.
