I remember being super disappointed by that name. Name it Thanatos or something. Anything but the name of the species/weapon type (??) with a boring adjective.

How about a MAN that is... SUPER. Or a MAN that dresses like... A BAT! Or a LANTERN that is... GREEN! Or a MAN that dresses in... IRON. Or a CAPTAIN that is from... AMERICA. Or a WOMAN who acts like a... CAT! Or a MAN bitten by a radioactive... SPIDER!

Superheroes are different from kaiju. that's because the latter is way more interesting and should be recognized more

It also just doesn't really gel with the naming convention of previous Pacific Rim monsters.

Me, too. Judging by the plot synopsis, it seems to be focused on one of the "bootleg" Jaegers, which was IMO one of the most interesting parts of PR2.

I think it’s dead Jim
Legit, every KoTM hater I have ever seen on social media or interacted with are all the same. They are either these young kids to middle aged adults so detached from anything beyond the Japanese films that they can't enjoy anything that doesn't begin with one of the Toho logos. They're the type that would of had no issues with KoTM if it was a Japanese-made production and think films like Godzilla vs. Monster Zero are the pinnacle of human drama.

Color me cautiously optimistic

I know this comment is old but ULTRAMAN was animated by Production I.G and SOLA Digital Arts, not Polygon. The same studios collaborated once again for Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045.

I honestly don’t care if it happens. I’m perfectly content with the first film and all it’s ancillary media. I don’t need an extension or continuation of the universe.
