Polygon Pictures - Sidonia no Kishi and Ajin had amazing action scenes, so has not criticized.

Gen Urobuchi - well, the guy is amazing, then OK

Nuclear horror with a horror director. Hideaki Anno isn't the only one taking on bigger things these days

Get hype

Either way, great news.

Nice. As a Godzilla-fan I'm quite happy with this news. Can't wait years for the movies to come out. So it will be a good entertainment till the actual films comes out.

Aside from me liking Godzilla, I'd be willing to give it a watch for Urobuchi alone. Nice.

I don’t know if he ever got his own series in the past, but Godzila has been turned into anime-form in some occasions (see my post in Godzilla Resurgence thread). But there’s an American animated series made by Sony based on the 1998 movie if you want to count that:
YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
That series is fun btw, but only if you accept that the “Godzilla” in this one is not Godzilla, but a giant Iguanosaur that can breathe radiated green-fire and dig the ground real fast like a mole. Oh, and he’s more or less a pet of the MC in that series. All the episodes are available on Youtube in case somebody is bored enough .

I watched ALL of that show, not as bad as you'd expect.

Also, my experience with "original" Godzilla (I do know the big guy has had his share of reimaginigs and reboots) only reaches a couple movies, including 2000. That's part of why I asked that question.

Godzilla has never appeared in anime but has made a cameo in Crayon-Shin-chan.
Also, his first animated appearance was this.

Strangely enough, I'm less bothered by CGI if the show is all-CGI. So if they do it pure CGI I guess I'll be okay with it. But if it's CGI with hand-drawn, It'll be a lot harder for me to stomach it. That said, if Gen Urobuchi actually has full creative control of the story we might be in for an actually scary Godzilla anime.

EDIT "Gen Urobuchi will be involved with the storyboard/draft."...uhm...okay. I'm worried now.

According to the website Urobuchi is on original story and script, so it's fine

A Godzilla anime will be very interesting and it looks like this does not take place on earth too

The movie seems to be more of a science fiction than just a monster destroying Tokyo.

It looks more like a non-bioluminescent Pandora than anything else. We sure we still on Earth, BTW? ;D

And, yes, I know about Monster Island.

- The tag on that photo reads "Old Tanzawa".

Google search came up with the Tanzawa Mountains in Japan. Hmmm...maybe this is a future time when Godzilla's radiation has affected Japan, and the survivors are either trying to destroy Godzilla or find a way to return back to their homes?

...And that may tie in to similarities to Fukushima, with all the people still unable to return home due to the amount of radiation there. As well as Chernobyl, with the mutated flora and fauna...

Actually, I grew up with that ... sadly the main thing I remember about it was Godzuki

****

That being said, regarding the visuals ... I kinda like the idea of a post apocalyptic ultra-forested sci fi setting....
