Godzilla, when I talk about Godzilla let me assure you know I have a vast knowledge about the monster.

I’ve watched all the movies (Japanese, horrible American one and the new American one), I’ve also watched all the tv shows about him, I’ve got to meet the actor who played him and I saw him get his star on the walk of fame in LA (and collected all the comics about him). So when I say a movie or tv show about Godzilla, Gamera or any Japanese movies monsters (or as I love the term mon-stars) let it be sure that it’s based on a long life of being a fan of Godzilla.

Netflix divided Godzilla series into 3 sets, the first one is called Godzilla monster planet. Yes, it’s a Godzilla movie no it’s not the one Americans are used to seeing. When I watched it I remember the original first Godzilla movie, more talking and setting up than action (which was towards the middle of the movie). Everything about the show is so awesome to me because this is the third time Godzilla is in anime/cartoon form (Godzilla by Hanna Barbera, the only time Godzilla met Bambie and Godzilla the series Tri-Star’s Godzilla ). Nothing compares to Netflix series which is something I really like. Now why I like it is because I feel it captures the soul of Godzilla and a very good considering Netflix and anything Japanese related (Death Note).

So if the question is should I watch it? In my humble opinion yes, if you like anime, if you like Godzilla or both. The only thing I should warn you is this does not go in judging as a Godzilla live action movie or an anime series why because it’s a merger of both anime and Godzilla storyline.
