Good point, you two. Gamera's not mainstream and yes, he only became popular when MST3K--which is something of a cult hit itself, I think--is what made him popular. I'll also admit that the only way I could get through the very first Gamera was with the help of the Satellite of Love's crew.
But, if we ignore the mainstream, then that still leaves Gamera an opening for a comeback. Streaming anyone?
