You and me both. Seems this element has really come out in recent weeks too. Ultimate cringe that a fan actually asked Dougherty about it. Christ
Dougherty’s sort of been entertaining MosuGoji shippers recently though (check his Twitter if you don’t believe me), and evidently the Japanese dub rendered the “symbiotic relationship” line as “love between species” so that sort of explains the oupouring of Japanese art
To me, kaiju shipping is sort of mixed. I don’t do it myself, but some people do it jokingly or semi-jokingly and it’s humorous at best and harmless at worst, and then some people take it all too seriously or go too far into the joke and it goes full cringe and sometimes outright disgusting
The “uncrossable line” that makes me instantly think less of a person for liking is gijinkas. It’s like the fifth time I’ve said it but in the past few months it’s become increasingly difficult to spend five minutes in a Godzilla related discussion before they start showing up en masse
