I was just watching this again the other day. Do you think Honda was influenced at all by Where The Wild Things Are?

The book was published in 1963, 6 years before this film, and features a boy who daydreams he goes to an island populated by giant monsters.

It wouldn't surprise me. But the obvious questions are:
A-Was Where The Wild Things Are Ever Published in Japan
B-Did Honda at the time, have grandchildren or children? He was 51 at the time. It wouldn't be surprising.

Doing some research: Japanese Title
”かいじゅうたちのいるところ ”

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%8B ... 3%E3%82%8D

"日本では1966年に"

In 1966 the book was published in Japan! Three years before!

First Japanese Edition, published 1966, under the title of "Various Monsters Living" (title doesn't sound strange in Japanese"

That would have been a better title than All Monsters Attack. :lol:
