The Godzilla: The Anime Production Crew thread

Postby TheSecondComing » Thu Aug 18, 2016 5:12 pm

Anybody who's ever visited this forum ought to know how this works by now. This thread is for announcing, recognizing, and speculating on the crew for Godzilla, the upcoming anime in 2017. Since it's too soon for the movie to even have its' own IMDB page yet, here's what info is available so far. These three were announced via the Oricron/Crunchyroll announcement today:

#3.

director Kobun Shizuno (Knights of Sidonia, Detective Conan) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2032664/

director Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia, Final Fantasy VII + X) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2670218/

writer Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim, Psycho-Pass) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3256781/

Kinda surprised Anno isn't involved in some way. Even if it was a producer role.

Exciting, exciting times.

Really hoping for Sagisu again honestly.

Or Hiroyuki Sawano, his work on Attack on Titan and Seven Deadly Sins is very solid

I always knew that an anime Godzilla was only a matter of time, and people "in the know" kept telling me it would never happen...
It has been my experience that things that are never going to happen have a way of happening...

Next on the "never gonna happen" list, Godzilla Vs Gamera....

Now having said that, does it bother anyone else that the first official image from this thing has absolutely no representation of Godzilla at all in it? Not even a shadow or silhouette. The first thing Shin Gojira showed us was a foot, and the first thing we got out of G 14 was full body artwork (that ended up not being accurate, but whatever..)

Call me old fashioned, but I’d like more Godzilla in my Godzilla…

Would you care I speculate what sorts of roles those actors could have?

I speculate that Yuki Kaji being the main character and Kana Hanazawa being the female lead (that being a dead giveaway).

Gintoki doesn't rock aviators, and even if he did no one can rock em like the fiddle master himself.

Anime News Network's article on the trilogy announcement actually revealed a number of new crew.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... no/.113950

Uroguchi is also responsible for series composition with Yūsuke Kozaki.

Hiroyuki Morita is serving as assistant director, and Naohiro Yoshihira ("Tady") is the technical director. Naoya Tanaka and Ferdinando Patulli are production designers, and Yuki Moriyama is designing the characters in CG. Mitsunori Kataama is the model director. Yukihiro Shibutani is the art director, and Hironori Nochi is the color key artist. Satoshi Motoyama is the sound director.


Added in 1 hour 6 minutes 28 seconds:
I'm stunned it's been over a month since anything new happened (3/25 to 5/3), and that tonight's event was not already foreshadowed.


#2. (looks like directors are counted separately, so only writer Gen Urobuchi counts in the IMDB tally.)
