Next era of Japan : Predicting the name

Postby LegendZilla » Thu Jan 31, 2019 2:46 pm

With the Heisei era of Japan on its way out in mere months time, why not try to make predictions to what the nation will choose? This link here provides the best examples for what to expect : https://themonsoonproject.org/2018/10/2 ... -era-name/

I thought now will be a fitting time to discuss such a thing, since we’re a community who likes to categorize Kaiju and Tokusatsu media in general by which era of a Japanese Emperor they were released in.

If the Godzilla series is anything to go by it'll probably be Millennium.
My rules:

1. If I start getting carried away, I simply just log off and come back later.
2. Think before I suddenly post.
3. Try not to post image only posts even if they're just for fun and jokes.

The "We're skreeonked by climate change and the world is going to poop" era.

I hear Hedorah is the main antagonistic monster in the next series.

I think Kaishin, something about it just sounds right. Plus Japan has been using Shin pretty often lately. 2 others i'd pick would be Genmu and Koushou.

Are any of us even truly qualified in any way to predict this?

Rhetorical question. ;)

So... how long before the 2016-18 Godzilla films will be foolishly retroactively classified the under the upcoming era's name?

I guess so but for our guesses don't mean anything. We might as well be throwing out "the peas and carrots era" or some poop because all any of us known about the procedure comes from that article. And if you hadn't posted that the guesses would have meant even less.

It's like predicting who's gonna be the next pope.

Predict what exactly? A name for an era we have no choice in the matter. I never got that to be honest. Fun in predicting I mean.

The "uneducated westerners are gonna call everything coming out of Japan (especially Godzilla movies) right wing/leaning because they heard of Shinzo Abe once Vox talked about him and will beg to be let in to 'repopulate' because of the birth rate meme" era.

Are you trying to chastise me for brining this up just because you feel that honest speculation of a country’s future should be off-limits for outsiders of said country?

i ho[e they call it the Kaishin era, because that one sounds coolest.

that's all i have to say in the matter. i don't have any real say in the matter anyway.
