He might as well get a voice change too, I think his original roar was an edited Godzilla roar, if you listen carefully.

Kaiju is Japanese of "monster" or "strange beast". Anime is Japanese for "cartoon" or "animation". Manga is Japanese for "magazine" or "comic".

While Japanese are famous in the genre of "monster movie" (kaiju eiga) and "supermonster movie" (daikaiju eiga), it's not it's own genre.


Yeah it's really not a big deal to me. You guys took my comment more seriously than it actually was. I just prefer to use the term "kaiju" when it comes to this kind of stuff.
