Day 131: Godzilla VS Mechagodzilla 2

mechagodzilla 2 2

Continuing the train of bringing back Showa era villains to promote ticket sales, Toho’s next Godzilla film would feature the return of a fan-favorite enemy of our King of the Monsters: Mechagodzilla!

love this movie! Not just because Mechagodzilla is back (and cooler than ever I might add)

but because of the other plot-relevant monster: Rodan. Or more specifically, Fire Rodan.

FireRodan

Not only is it nice to see an old classic coming back (did I forget to mention that Rodan is one of my top five monsters in the series?) but he actually plays a big role in the story. Hell, without him, Godzilla wouldn’t have been able to beat Mechagodzilla.

Or more specifically, without his death he wouldn’t have been able to beat him.

Now, I know I’ve talked a lot about the many stupid but fun moments in the series. But this one? This is the first true moment where Godzilla goes full-on Anime mode. How, you ask? Well, let me explain.

In the image above, both Godzilla and Rodan are down and dying by Mechagodzilla’s hand. So Fire Rodan then merges his soul with Godzilla’s, effectively giving Godzilla all of his power.

Sound like anime yet? Because we’ve only just gotten started.

Godzilla, now imbued with the power of the volcanic pterodactyl, fires upon Mechagodzilla with a brand new unstoppable power: The Red Spiral Ray. Mechagodzilla counters, and the two are locked in a beam struggle like in Dragonball Z.

Oh, you think I’m kidding?

This movie is awesome, anime, and I love it! It’s not as fucking stupid and fun as Spacegodzilla (don’t worry, we’ll finally get to that tomorrow) and it’s not as good as Godzilla VS Mothra. Still, you should definitely give this a watch if you’re a Godzilla fan.

If not just to get the taste of City on the Edge of Battle out of your mouth.
