Not to mention the whole "fight is interrupted by an underwater volcano" felt kind of dumb. It is probably just me but, well, you expect someone to win between two brothers don't you?
James23873 wrote:Okay, this is something I'm a little confused about. In the beginning of War of the Gargantuas, when we first meet Dr. Stewart, he talks about how Frankenstein had escaped from his clinic and had died at Mt. Fuji. Then his assistant(I forget her name) later says that after Frankenstein had escaped he came back and said goodbye to her. Now I assumed they were talking about the Frankenstein form Frankenstein vs. Baragon but then they showed the scene of young Sanda, implying that was who they were talking about the whole time.
So is Sanda and Frankenstein supposed to have almost identical pasts?
Also, this was the Japanese version with subtitles.

I love a lot of Toho stuff, but they couldn't pull-off Frankenstein or King Kong. Fun movies, but I prefer their own material - Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, etc.

Any particular reason why?
