Hypothetically, if each and every one of my followers donated the minimum $1 pledge to Kaiju Gaiden's Kickstarter, it would amass $10,340 in funding. It really needs it, too. Please consider donating to this really cool project.

↳ Gamera

Some would say that Gamera is the K-Mart Godzilla. I would say fuck you.

Gamera, star of Daiei’s kaiju staple, is a giant turtle who spits fire and flies. Awesome. He’s a prehistoric monster who got by with eating jet fuel, which might explain why he shoots fire from his mouth. He is the last of his kind, as it goes with most kaiju, and is typically not a bad guy. One of Gamera’s monikers is “Friend of All Children.” What a sweet turtle. He was invented as a rival to the popularity of Godzilla and enjoyed great success in his own right.

Gamera came to my notice as a young child by way of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which lovingly lampooned a great number of films featuring the big guy.

When you put it like that, how could I possibly resist?

Born from extraterrestrial spores and pollution comes FEDORAH: THE SMUG MONSTER!  He’s here, he’s angry, and he’s gonna tell you why female kaiju like Mothra are actively trying to discriminate against him!  In this moment, he is euphoric, because he refuses to believe in something as foolish as Godzilla!
