Also since the series seems to be content with reimagining obscure showa monsters. I’m putting it in quotes on the off chance it turns out to be Varan X Godzilla, and just not explicitly called Varan, which might be the case with Titanosaurus.

I feel like Rodan, Titanosaurus, Varan, in many ways we’re all variations on the original Godzilla concept. So those monsters in the series, thus far, seem to be “thralls” and related to Godzilla. I’m curious, because it seems like Anguirus, Hedorah and co, and even Gabara are completed unrelated.
Interesting. Never caught onto the Rodan, Titano, and Varan connection. I wonder what the deal with the other kaiju is though...are they natural? Or some kind of enemies towards the Godzilla-like kaiju?
Speaking of which, Gabara actually gets a weirdly personal moment in the opening which makes me suspect it’ll do a lot. I suspect since Shinva(?) is working with artificial and new elements/materials, Gabara will be a byproduct of that creation.
Gabara’s finally gonna be significant in some way after all these years :lol:

Greatly enjoyed episode three, Rodan was fantastic! I see no reason why people should complain about his first design in the show when we get this second one that's esstentially Showa '56, complete with the mahogany color & black eyes. If anything, I think it's neat how we got a radical design and a stylized classic one in the same show.

Yun's cunning idea to distract the flock of Rodan's with elevated radio waves came in handy, I'm sure he'll continue to come up with something smart when Anguirus comes around. Especially since he's noticing the predictions coming true.

Now..... Godzilla's theme playing when "Titanosaurus" appears... very interesting.

Was that a rendition of MAT's theme from Ultraman Jack when they were driving off on that scooter? After the bus encounter?

Wait, there were two Mandas in the first trailer. What if during their land battle, one of them gets Orga'd by Titanosaurus, allowing the latter to turn into Godzilla and making the remaining Manda attack him?

I've been watching it on Japanese Netflix, unsubbed (so if I get things wrong, don't crucify me). Others have been watching fansubs. I think it should be easy to figure out where to find such things independently and if you so choose to, please support the full release when it's available on Netflix.

Please do not post links to fansubs: they will be deleted and result in warnings. Please do not also spam this thread with asking where to find them, but should others choose to be kind and share them privately, I think that's fine.

Also, episode 4 premieres tonight for me at midnight. I'm excited, but damn this is gonna screw with my sleep cycle.

Episode 4 was good, great even, but leaves so many things to pop off in the next episode. It's a very plot heavy episode, and has the least monster action so far, although many set ups for episode 5. I love the locale switch to Dubai with Mei, and man what this series is building up to. Episode 4 really sets things up to establish Gabara, Manda, Titanosaurus, and Angy. Not so much action, but a nice build up.

Edit: The switch of scenery was well needed. I was impressed to see Dubai and it's a very unique setting to a Godzilla property. I like that some of the newscasters, and extras (like the professor) keep repeating. I might be wrong, but Yun and Havel have a discussion about Rodan changing. It seems that there is variation within the Rodan species,

Yun says something strange about Rodan:
"神化controlする
。。。
自分の体を駆られるですか”


Keep that with a grain of salt, I'm tired and the kanji might be wrong but:
Yun is discussing how the Rodan are continually changing, and have control over their own bodies and are reactive to something.
Also, Sato with the strange man pretty much has an "oxygen destroyer moment" with the bones at the end of the first episode. We get a cut back to that moment and it's very strange.

Episode 5 and 6, need to go HARD with the monster action. While I like everything so far, we need things to start firing on all cylinders. Excited for next week.

Anguirus was creepy on what we briefly saw of him. It's disturbing that he ate the dead Rodan, and the presumable death of the solider. One thing I appreciate, is that the series hasn't gotten graphic or gory. I don't think having ultra violence is good in a Godzilla property, so I'm glad they haven't done easy things that lesser anime might do.

I think Gabara(not-yet-confirmed™) might be bigger than we originally anticipated. I need to recheck the trailer, but there was a shot of Gabara climbing a structure, and we assumed therefore it would be small. Now, since we have the world's tallest building, it appears Gabara might be in the 30 meter range, or bigger than what we originally assumed. I think using a setting like that "Dubai" is a great way to take advantage of it being an anime.

Can't wait to find out the meat behind the science mumbo jumbo. I think Shiva may have created a pocket universe or the red sand that has had dire, unforeseen side effects. Think Gabara may be a major threat.

skreeonk. Well, looks like Vakanai was right, lmao. However, there's something more...

I'll put a spoiler tag because this is based on a toy, not anything shown off in the show:
Spoiler:
Actually, looking at the tag, it's Gojira Aquatalis. OR Godzilla Aquatalis. In other words, it's (a) Godzilla!

I highly suspect they're re-using the original "Titan" concept from TOMG. It's going to get frustrating though, if Manda and Varan aren't the monsters. It's also possible that this is "Titanosaurus" but they have two names. Like 'd get a
Spoiler:
"Godzilla Serpentus" (Manda) and a "Godzilla Atmospherous" (Varan). That's still possible.

I wonder how will the Godzilla skeleton will play into this series. Will it be used as a bio weapon, potentially a Godzilla that is revived, but under humanity’s control. Or will it be used to construct a potential Mechagodzilla. Anyways this is my friend had a theory as well.

So he has a theory that Anguirus when seeing the future, he’s like literally seeing the end of the world, potentially the universe as well. Of course, Godzilla is likely the center of it all.

I have a theory that, the human characters will learn about this from Anguirus, presumably from Yun’s close encounter with Anguirus. And he will also see the future.
Spoiler:

There’s a problem for Manda. We already have a figure for it and it’s already named.

According to the toy leak from December-ish, we're due for two more Godzilla variants, Godzilla B and C. In the opening of Singular Point we see what looks like Varan with Godzilla dorsal plates, so I'd say that's probably B. Wonder what Kaiju C could end up being? I suspect we might've seen it right after 'Titanosaurus' and 'Varan' in the opening but the shot I'm referencing goes by so quick and is so obscured that it's so hard to tell who it resembles. I was confused for a while because I thought it was Gabara, but looking at it frame-by-frame, it definitely can't be him. My next thought was King Caesar, possibly I guess??? I'm gonna use photoshop to try figuring out a silhouette

Have a feeling that the silhouette is Varan. It looks very similar to his snout. But I do have a feeling these could either be Godzilla or a close relative. If that’s a case, then Varan being a close relative of Godzilla would be a nod to the Showa era relation of Godzilla and Varan. Which has been said they were close relatives. But that’s just me.
