Who exactly is this art thief? And yeah, it's pretty ironic an art thief is claiming Toho stole someone's design.

Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

I dont know if this is the appropriate place to post this. Some of the comments on this video didn't have me cringing but did leave me scratching my head. I disagree on the exact ranking of some of the Ghidorahs in the video but the comments are a trip.

Showa Ghidorah being small star level, Heisei Ghidorah scaling to Heisei Godzilla who is Black Hole level because of Spacegodzilla, and GMK Mothra shining with the power of the sun, to name a few.

He's easily the most important and most powerful kaiju in the franchise. so powerful that Godzilla is helpless against his power, and pleads for mercy, which the gracious Condor grants him. I mean, even the editor wasn't able to show a single shot of the Condor onscreen for more than half a second, because no-one can handle that much sheer power for more than a second.

I cringe when English speaking fans insist on calling Godzilla Gojira. Godzilla is literally the English version of the word that Ishiro Honda approved of lol.

This annoys me, too, primarily because the way most fans pronounce it (like Maria Pitillo in GINO) is wrong. I think it's also kinda dumb that the 1954 film has become "Gojira" in the West.

Tap the speaker icons in the link below. https://translate.google.com/#view=home ... ext=gojira

One thing a lot of Godzilla fans do which the English Google voice doesn't is put the emphasis on the second syllable (as we do in "godZILla"). There's no such emphasis in the Japanese pronunciation.

The main differences are caused by the "r", which is a totally different consonant in Japanese than in English. Not only that, but English allows for consonants modifying preceding vowels (in this case the "r" modifies the "i" to give us something like "jeer"), which you don't really have in Japanese. In this case, both pronunciations have three syllables, but the Japanese ゴジラ has the third syllable begin with the consonant we render as "r" while the English pronunciation typically has a third syllable consisting only of the vowel "a". (Hopefully I made that distinction clear. Another way of looking at it: ゴジラ is consonant-vowel, consonant-vowel, consonant-vowel; "Gojira" is consonant-vowel, consonant-vowel-consonant, vowel.)

Maybe the differences sound subtle to most, idk. I've studied Japanese, however, and the "standard" American pronunciation of "Gojira" makes me cringe. And I understand that most Anglophones shouldn't be expected to know, understand, and reproduce every Japanese sound correctly, but IMO it kinda defeats the purpose of using a foreign word for distinction if you're just gonna Anglicize that word anyway.

The "English accent" pronunciation of Gojira is close enough that I don't see why it's really worth making a fuss about. That's like cringing at an foreigner's accent when they speak English as a secondary language.

A new speaker is not going to pronounce things as perfectly as a native speaker and it's silly (and cringey, IMO, if we're going by this thread) to expect them to.

I just came across a crossover porn image of Hazbin Hotel and Ultraman Geed. Obviously can't post it here but it's not like I'd even want to.

^ At a glance I was going to tell you that you were looking at a simple Godzilla as Sailor Moon parody... and then I stopped and actually took in the details, and now, I... I don't quite know what I'm looking at, either. I suspect it may be best that we never learn the answer to that question.
