the first one was mediocre, should i continue with the rest?

>>17135982
The second one is sort of underrated. Of course it's not the greatest thing ever but it is better than what people give it credit for. First one was garbage. I don't know about this one but if OP shares with us then we'll know I guess.

>Human civilization may have been the product and plan of the Exif
What did Urobuchi hope to convey with this?
>>
>>17135982
The second ones a lot weaker honestly. Without having the advantage of introducing the visual style as well as the entire scenario it essentially just feels like set up for a vs. movie. But instead you just get what is equivalent to a bunch of mazer tanks failing to beat godzilla. I don't know how other people felt during the action scenes but I never got any notion that there was even a sliver of a chance the vultures could stop Godzilla. There was absolutely no tension. They might as well have been using modern weaponry to annoy him.
>>
>>17136060
The first movie is just world-building. The second movie has the philosophy, more complex characters, and the fight with the Vultures was a more engaging fight than the bikers in POTM. You could even watch the second one without the first honestly.
>>
>>17136067
>The first movie is just world-building.
Which is honestly the only strong point of this trilogy.
>>
>>17136071
I always felt that Urobuchi was really good at coming up with the concept of a universe but isn't as good at executing the story he wants to tell in that universe. For instance, I absolutely loved the concept of a Lovecraftian cosmic horror Ghidorah. The execution wasn't handled very well apparently. All in all, I feel like this trilogy has some of the best worldbuilding in the Godzilla franchise. Only its execution fell short.
>>
>>17136087
Urobuchi wanted real fights and shit but Toho was retarded and demanded that there be no kaiju fights in these.
>>
>>17136087
Urobutcher was extremely limited by Toho handing down inane orders including that the trilogy not include any monster battles.
>企画の初期段階で東宝さんから「このアニメ版ゴジラは怪獣プロレスにはしません」という宣言というか、方針確認があったんです。「アニメで怪獣をやる」という意味について初期段階で検討したんですね。日本だと「怪獣という存在」と「怪獣プロレス」がどこかでセットのイメージがあって。だからこそ「プロレスをしない怪獣」というのは、大胆な切り口であり、虚淵さんは原案を考えていく段階で、そこを起点にしていました。もともとゴジラ映画を見ていない静野さんには、僕と虚淵さんで「ここから先、ゴジラ映画を見ないでください」と伝えました。そんな静野さんの「ゴジラが口から火吐くのはどうなのかな」とか、その視点でしか出てこないアイデアが、結果的に、「ゴジラ」シリーズを見たことがないような女性ファンがアニメ版ゴジラを見てくださっているという流れを生み出し、戦略目的は達成できています。もし僕と虚淵さんだけだったら、極端な話、メカゴジラシティが最後に合体して、全高1kmのメカゴジラになってますよ(笑)。そこからはもう30分間、戦闘のみです。指から目から鼻から、ビーム、ミサイルが飛んで、あとは首が回転したり、あらゆるギミックが……(笑)。
>Seshita says it was TOHO that told them from the beginning of the project that it was NOT to be about kaiju fights. Urobuchi wrote his script on this basis. Shizuno had barely seen Godzilla movies to begin with and came up with "interesting ideas" like "does he really have to breathe fire". As a result they did succeed in getting to new fanbases, especially younger women.
>Shizuno barely watched tokusatsu films and so didn't have any preconceptions on what a Godzilla film "should be like".
>Seshita says that if it were just him and Urobuchi, Mecha Godzilla City would have probably ended with the entire city combining and standing up to form a 1 km tall Mecha Godzilla.
>Urobuchi wanted to have all of the turrets turn into Mecha Godzilla heads but Shizuno stopped it from happening.
>Seshita says that if it weren't for Shizuno, the Exifs would probably all have worn sunglasses like the Xians.
>>
>>17136090
Regardless of circumstances I'm surprised he was open to pointing fingers so soon after the movie was released. I thought that kind of stuff was fairly taboo in Japan. He must have been pretty frustrated to get to that point.
>>
>>17136087
So why all the hate for the characters here? They're among the most competently written characters a Godzilla movie has featured in a long time.
>>
>>17136098
I don't find them particularly interesting.
>>
>>17136096
Unlike what retards from /a/ might have you believe Urobuchi loves fuckers in shades and coats with guns doing kung-fu (refer to Phantom, Vjedogonia, Kikokugai, even Fate/Zero) and if he had free reign he would’ve literally written Final Wars Only More Guns and Kung-Fu. Toho’s dumb “noooo kaiju fights are only for our REAL movies” and the director literally being a guy who does “durrr, why dose godzila breathes the fire?????” are to blame for any problems the trilogy has and it’s amazing that they turned out as good as they did despite them.
>>
>>17136096
The creative landscape in Japan has changed a lot over the last five years bro. More and more creators are expressing themselves and taking agency over their creations. A lot of creators are tired of being background props especially when their works were being ripped off.

The humans are rarely the meat and potatoes in Godzilla movies, yet in this trilogy they are the largest element linking the three movies together, so of course people are comparing them by a different standard.
>>
>>17136090
This just seems weird. Why would Toho want to pass up the chance for merchandise sales? Because of the content in the movies (that they apparently pushed for) the second movie doesn't even really promote the Mecha Godzilla vinyl they made, and they had a hard time even coming up with a way to interpret Ghidorah as a vinyl.
>>
>>17135731
Thx. I thought episode 1 > episode 2 but episode 2 had better action. Gonna watch this
>>
>>17136191
Perhaps they wanted to distinguish this series from the Legendary movie, sonce that will be a more traditional Godzilla film, giving them room to experiment.
>>
Does he get his qt moth harem?
>>
It was pretty fucked up when Metphies made the moth girl into soup and fed it to people. But then maybe the staff felt that way too so they showed her tied up later even though she didn't do much afterwards.

I liked. It was on the same vibe as the other 2 with less battles, but the themes are way stronger in this.

Just watched it. Holy shit, what a trip. I was expecting Lovecraftian Ghidorah, but that surrealism and execution was over the top. Definitely wasn't ready for it, and I think they blew all their budget on this one. Much more quality and dynamic shots than City and Planet combined. I'll probably rewatch it later because hoo boy.
It's honestly a satisfying and rather humble conclusion to the trilogy. One thing I'm sure is that this will be just as hit or miss as City was. Probably one of the few anime I know that tackles religion so bluntly.
>>
>>17136317
That scene was fucking kino. Say what you want about this trilogy and Ghidorah’s design, his concept for this movie was amazing. The first time a Ghidorah actually creeped me out and gave me Event Horizon vibes.
>>
>>17135731
Don't even want to watch it after hot garbage that was first two movies. Can't wait for that moment when Toho actually will be making new live action movies.

It's Matt Frank's tumblr, he worked on several Godzilla comics and other projects directly for Toho (as wel as Tsuburaya, he made the Redman comic). He has met people who work in Toho and that post it a japanese contact of him giving CONTEXT to the already translated interview.
There was never going to be a 1km Mechagodzilla fighting Godzilla traditionally, he was just joking and made the movies he wanted to made.

>The Bilusaludo on board the ship stage a revolt over Haruo's actions at the end of the second movie and take control of the ship's power systems with their demand being Haruo's death
>Lazzari has Miana take Haruo to a hidden location in the hopes that Haruo's absence will both lessen the survivors' zealotry and give the ship's council a way to calm the Bilusaludo by being able to honestly say that they can't find him

>Haruo is awakened by Miana clumsily removing his suit only to realize that it's actually been Maina this whole time, who explains that she's worried about him and wants to ensure he's connected to the future no matter what happens, the two then have sex and fall asleep together

>Haruo reaches Metphies, discovering he's brought Miana with him and tied her up, presumably as bait
>Metphies explains that Godzilla is not a unique phenomenon and that every civilization eventually creates a Godzilla, and that Ghidorah is the god that eats the fruit of civilization's labors that is Godzilla

>He tells her that he's doing something he has to do despite knowing that it'll kill him, and tells her that he hopes she'll understand one day
>Haruo flies towards Godzilla and monologues about how Godzilla isn't just going to kill him, but all the hatred, grudges and curses that belong to everyone Godzilla has killed to this point, ending with Godzilla blasting the vulture out of the sky

I don't think the movies are really good Godzilla movies, but they're compelling sci-fi movies. I think had they been marketed as something other than Godzilla films, then people would have responded better.


Holy hell though. The third movie was really good. I was impressed.

The mindtrip stuff was compelling. And really unsettling. Haruo and Metphies in the Enola Gay of all things was a downright unsettling scene. I wonder how that went over in Japan?

I think that their idea was to take Godzilla in a very different direction and, as long as it remains a "one of a kind" deal, it works. It doesn't do anything particularly well, but it's a relatively decent albeit forgetful experience. However i watched it having no interest in a Godzilla anime, preferring the classic movie incarnations, so i didn't have any expectations about it.
>>
I was hoping the girl would wake up to ride the surviving mecha and assist in the final battle, instead of just get destroyed. I really liked the technological aliens and wanted their legacy (and Mechagodzilla's) to survive somehow. Maybe show some compromise with the series' other themes. Oh well, it still had a lot of interesting ideas.

Just finished it.
I really enjoyed Ghidorah shitting on physics as an inter-dimensional being.
The religious themes struck a chord as well.
>>
I really digged this take on take on Ghidorah. I just wish the design transferred a bit better than it did in animation.
>>
>>17135731
Well, on the upside, it's not just the first one again, like the second one was. On the downside, it's an hour and half of nothing happening while people talk about how amazing it is that nothing is happening, quite literally for a lot of the Ghidorah "fight," and then the ending is a bunch of nothing. What a waste of four and a half hours in total.

At least the shot of Ghidorah descending to Earth through the hurricane was cool for like ten seconds.
>>
>>17138265
I actually didn't have a problem with Ghidorah's design. The three-headed, winged space dragon design has been done to death so many times throughout Showa and Heisei that this feels like a much needed break from the usual design. Plus the noodly heads conveyed the sense of surrealism, wrongness and eldritch nature of this Ghidorah pretty well desu.
>>
>>17137974
He realized it was the angry one because the shy one helped him before, so she already knew how to open his suit, but this one didn't.
>>
Christ, the plot of the 3rd episode made no sense. A few parts were kino but what the fuck was everyone's problem aside the twins? Why didn't Haruo fuck them? Was he too homo with the guy with the Ghidorah eye?
>>

Anon, he got the angry twin pregnant. Their child is in the post-credits scene.

>Fucking nothing happens: the episode
I appreciate what they were trying to do with Ghidora but God damn the episode could have EASILY been twice as short if they had cut down the "Ghidora's heads slowly descend" and "Ghidora's biting Godzilla for minutes on end" scenes.
>>
Christ, what a downer ending. They could've have framed it differently as some sort of Pyrrhic victory but Haruo literally just fucking gave up on life. Guess I'd have to wait for the Legendary flick for my "Godzilla is a capeshit character" fix.

It’s because people like you exist that the Exif had such an easy time building a cult underneath the humans’ noses. Stop taking everything they say at face value as though characters can’t have ulterior motives. The Ghidorah worship was foreshadowed as early as the first movie.
>>
>>17138765
I would if I could
>>
>>17138696
It's not too hard to understand. The goal of the Exif in the film is to offer mankind (and themselves) as sacrifices to King Ghidorah all in the name of a religion built around nihilism. The reason they try not to openly mention Ghidorah by name is because they don't want to risk making their actions any more meaningless than they already perceive them as being and summon him at a point in time too early for them to dupe enough humans into letting themselves get eaten by a glowing, golden three-headed dragon from another dimension.
>>
>>17138646
I love that he just ragequit life.
>>
>>17138646
It's was a classic Butcher ending, and while I understand why it ended how it did, i don't agree with it.
Martin had seen and learned about Ghidorah, plus he holds Haruo in fairly high regard, so if Harup had just explained things to him I'm sure he could have been convinced to scrap it all. In addition, Haruo never even said goodbye to Maina, only Miana got some sort of farewell and that's only because she followed him.
I feel like Night of the Living Dead is the first piece of media that Urobuchi ever saw, and it convinced him that everything needs to end the same way. I hate the way he writes, it's like he never got out of that edgy teenager phase where dark and full of suffering equates to mature.
>>
>>
>>17138646
Congratulations, you just watched urobuchi's writings.
>>17138639
and give normies more reason to hate on the movie by making youtube videos of kaiju screentime. It's not like it was just repeated shot of the monsters anyway, they still narrate it in the background as things went down.
As a side note, Yuko did jack shit all trilogy. they could've just kicked her out and use the budget originally for kana hanazawa used for more dynamic scenes. For the last Vulture it could suddenly reactivate just like all those malfunctions MGCity did. They would also don't need that awkward City kiss scene or the cringe "I WANT TO BECOME STRONGER" in PotM. I hate her so fucking much, what a tropey character to drag down the pacing of the movie.

Godzilla: The Planet Eater is basically The Call of Cthulhu
>>
>>
>>17138815
>hey, let's suggest that we never advance technologically, a minority opinion that will definitely get disagreed on by the other humans
Telling Martin would be no use. The point was that they could control nanometal now. Having them not use it would just give rise to more factions clash just like in Aratrum. AT worst they'd get exiled by humans. That was the entire point of why Metphies was so confident, because lesser tribes like human and bilusaludos will always have a clash of minority vs majority.
Even if they had it under control, Houtuas are incompatible with nanometal so there'd come a time where they probably fight for territory. Everything's a dead end.

Just watched them all.
I thought Expelled From Paradise was kind of fun so I had high hopes for this, but man the visuals were just not great. I wasn't a fan of Godzilla's model so seeing it move so slowly with such unflattering lighting didn't help. It almost always had a dopey look on it's face. The human characters just looked dated, both their models and animation. A lot of the action segments felt very droning to me. A lot of loud noises and bright lights with very little happening.
There were some cool ideas with the setting and I appreciate them trying to do something different with Ghidorah but it felt like the whole thing utilized it's time very poorly. I didn't end up very invested in any of the characters, so when they hammered in the hopelessness and tragedy it just felt like it was falling on deaf ears. I feel like i'm judging this more as a series of anime movies than Godzilla movies, but i'm not sure i'd recommend them to anyone who isn't obsessed with Godzilla.
>>
You know it wasn't until this movie that I realized. Why didn't they just travel to the other side of the world? Were Godzilla wouldn't know they were there.
>>
>>17138987
Once again, the answer is the Exif. You may or may not like how they handled it but it does address all plot holes regarding the landing. The Exif have sympathizers even among the humans, they’ve been fearmongering and stirring up anti-Godzilla sentiment for quite a while using Haruo as a rallying figure. There are sane leaders there, it’s just that popular opinion as seen in the first movie got to the point where they had to give in or risk getting lynched. The Exif had it all keikaku doori’d the entire time. Haruo was a moron who didn’t even realize he’s being used as a fucking figurehead for a populist movement.
>>
>>17138821
>Yuko did jack shit all trilogy.
I disagree. She was actually pretty involved and their "romance" not working working out was an intentional statement about Haruo's character. People give her so much crap when she's more relevant than a number of other female characters in Godzilla films, like any of the female characters in Godzilla 2014. Those actresses weren't cheap.
>>
>>17139212
Yuko's character is necessary because she's the one thing that keeps Haruo from diving off the deep end. It was her screams of pain that finally convinced him to shoot MechaGodzilla City, not Metphies's preaching. If not for her influence on Haruo, the world may very well be covered in nanometal now.
>>
>>17138759
Well, his name is from the word spring. He was groomed by the Exif be the spring of humanity.
>>

>>17137067
Just because he was joking doesn't mean he didn't also mean it to a certain extent. Consider the behind the scenes/making of BD extras for The Hobbit movies. You'll notice that the common joke being made among the cast is around how shit it was to be working with the movie. Yeah, you're not supposed to take the words to the letter, but you best not ignore that there might just be some bits of truths to the complaints.

Didn't Urobuchi mention towards the end of the interview that he was happy with the end result?
>>
In the post credits scene, are they worshiping Godzilla or Haruo?
>>
>>17139392
Urobuchi wanted monster shlock that is evident, the timeline he created and the novels that he hired a Nitroplus writer to do also points to this.
But I don't think he hates the end-result, he saw it as a challenge to meet Toho's inane request, I think they delivered what Toho wanted in the end, as a professional screenwriter I guess that is enough for him.
>>
>>17139413
Haruo. He introduced the concept of hate to the Houtua and the ritual is all about bundling your fear and hate and giving it to him to go burn in the fire.
>>
>>17139420
>Toho's inane request
Is it really that weird? Toho wanted to get away from the stereotype that Godzilla has to be dumb monster schlock and what they came up with isn't too far removed from how the series started. At least they're doing it in what amounts to a direct-to-video series and not a mainline film. Urobuchi is ultimately responsible for the story, the only rule we're aware of is that he had to keep the monsters in the background. I think he did a good job.
>>
>>17139519

They did the best they could, but the producers should have realized that what they were creating essentially had little to no audience.
>>
>>17139529
Cutting risk?
After Shin became the second coming of the Christ that cleaned out house at the box offices and and Japanese award academies, they probably tried to dip their toe in and gauge if the audience is up for some more experimental, narrative and theme driven movies, or if Shin was just a fluke that stroke the budding nationalist boner. Judging by the reaction, i think it's safe to expect another drab millenium series after they reacquire the rights.

It's possible that they didn't want to have "traditional" fights to not spoil the experience of watching Godzilla 2 to newcomers.

>>17139659
Read the jap interviews.
Butcher and the good director rejected Toho's offer at first, this was before Shin was a thing, but after they heard Anno is working on a Godzilla movie they accepted.

Butcher even read the draft of the script of Shin. Shin of course started developpement before but the trilogy was definitely being worked on at the same time as Shin.
>>
20 minutes into this and to be honest this might be worse than the first two. It's so boring and just as super serial as the first two and Haruo is still an angry bitter fuck that needs to be fried.

He didn't want anyone to talk him out of it. Miana only got to speak to him because she followed him. The guy had a lot of baggage and realized he wasn't going to fit in. He still had a connection to Ghidorah and didn't fully agree with living in the shadow of Godzilla. More importantly, he needed to get rid of the nanometal and no one was going to agree with him. But he knew the dangers of the metal better than anyone. So he had plenty of reasons to do what he did and I think it's an appropriate ending.
>>
>>17135731
redpill me on the exif. What was their goal?
>>
>>17140068
This, reading the threads it honestly surprises me how little people realized the inevitability of a Grey Goo bad end, had Haruo left them to tinker with the Vulture and Waifu.
The Bilusaado were the only guys around who knew how that shit worked, and they openly admitted that they had only slightest degree of control over it and had no idea what would happen had it done away with godzilla.
Thing is, they didn't care if it absorbed the whole planet along with them, because to them that was an honor comparable to rapture.
Leaving humanity to tinker around with the nanometal is like giving nuclear energy to chimpanzees.
>>
>>17140071
Dying.
They achieved immortality and have had enough of it. After Ghidorah ate their planet, the survivors came to worship it and the absolute death it granted, and became missionaries low key preaching their deathcult, while grooming any race they encountered to accept their Lord and Savior once he came.
>>
Is it just me or Haruo literally didn't do anything this entire movie? but to be honest i fell asleep when godzilla was fighting ghidora and woke up and godzilla was still fighting ghidora.
>>
>>17140084
>They achieved immortality
No they didn't. They saw the universe would end one day and wanted to live in forever as part of Ghidorah, a la the soup metaphor Metphies preached to his cult.

I'm not a big Godzilla fan but as someone who enjoyed a lot of Urobuchi series I thought this was pretty lackluster. I feel like his writing usually includes characters that are much easier to connect with. The characters here feel like they are missing all their meat and exist purely to deliver dramatic payoff. Considering how awfully condensed a lot of this trilogy feels (for example, the world building) the characters feel like they were stretched too thin over the three movies.
I think this whole thing would have been much better as one film focusing on Godzilla and the specifics of the world it helped to shape, and spent more time on fleshing out the characters. Go all in on the moby-dick parallels and don't worry about introducing complex ideas like nano mecha-g and eldrich Ghidorah when there is already so much to work with.
>>
>>17140133
>T2 was the only Terminator movie that wasn't stellar.
Are you seriously telling me you thought T3 was stellar?
I'm willing to believe there are mouthbreathers who prefer modern hollywood schlock like Salvation and Genesys to classics like Terminator 2, but I really have a hard time accepting there are people who loved T3.
>>
>>17140377
Forget Planet of the Monsters and treat it as a duology consisting of the latter two movies instead of a trilogy. It's pure kino that way.
>>
>>17140384
Let's be real anon, T2 is Hollywood schlock to the core. It's driven by setpiece spectacle, star power, and catchy oneliners.

Granted, it's in the service of very worthwhile character development for Arnold's character, but let's not pretend T2 isn't goofball summer blockbuster material.
>>
>>17140377
Well, he's 1 out of 4 creative forces on this project, of course you're not going to get pure butcher.
Although it's surprising to me that the script for the series took him more time than all his other works. He put together the entire game of SnU in 4 months but writing Godzilla took him 4 times the amount of time.

I gotta say this is his most depressing work by far though, and pretty interesting but not at all entertaining like his other stuff.

>>17135811

They would conflict with the mothra people if they used nanometal because it's literally poison to them.

And with all the malfunctions MGCity had, do you really think they could control it fully?

No no you see humanity is now free from its pity and has reached salvation. Technology by default is evil, naturally the same goes for the literally Hitler "poisonous" nano-material too. With Haruo killing himself with his brain dead waifu in honorable Japanese fashion peace has finally been achieved. With all technology gone and humanity extinct the glorious moth gods reign begins.

Death is salvation. Japan is still mad about WW2.

>limit the nanometal
That's literally the first thing they'd thought nanometal WOULD do. Instead, even the limiter malfunctioned when left alone and United Earth collectively shat their pants upon seeing MGCity. And the nanometal collects data; that means goddamn Mechagodzilla itself could be reproduced. And when the next generation is comprised entirely of houtua-human hybrid, who do you think would be able to control the nanometal spread if it malfunctioned?
It's pretty much explained too that being nanometalized essentially turns you immortal due to its life support system, at least until your brain gives or you suicide. That shit is fully dangerous.

So I'm just a dumb normie who hasn't seen any Godzilla besides the american ones and this anime trilogy.

In dumb normies terms, I like it. Monster schlock doesn't appeal to me and wanting straight up kaiju fights for hours on end seems moronic to me, it's like wanting an abundance of zombie-related deaths in a zombie movie/show when they're just a backdrop for the human character and their drama, and the horror born out of that drama. I much prefer the high-end concepts they experimented with in this trilogy and in Shin.
>>
>>17141967
Nope. Godzilla has to get stronger as human technology progresses or he's no longer impressive. However, what's important is that he remains the product of human failures. Godzilla 2014 is the farthest the series has ever gotten from that. The actions that originally produced Godzilla were made into efforts to destroy him and that basically exonerates humanity of its crimes.
>>
>>17141906
Dangerous to what? Humanity goes extinct anyways. Technology bad!
>>
>>17136841
he wasn't buying humanity more time He was actually dooming it. He didn't tell anyone that Gidorah was waiting for humanity to reach that point again so he could eat them. He took the technology that they had and then destroyed it all setting humans back for hundred of thousand of years. Instead of using the Technology to rebuild and make a better world to Kill Godzilla and Gidorah.

The Nanometal couldn't self replicate anymore or it would have done so to rebuild its mass,

If the metal held all the Data about what Humanity had built so far you use the Dam thing as a Storage device and you rebuild with the tools you have around you.

>>17142054
>He took the technology that they had and then destroyed it all setting humans back for hundred of thousand of years. Instead of using the Technology to rebuild and make a better world to Kill Godzilla and Gidorah.
Congratulations for missing the point. You can't kill Godzilla. Or at least what he represents. Humanoids playing with forces beyond their control and comprehension is literally what led to Godzilla, MechaGodzilla, and Ghidorah. You'll either destroy yourself or make something that will destroy you.
>>
>>17135731
Well it was boring as fuck, the sex scene made zero sense and felt inorganic as fuck, ghidorah was super fucking boring, elf alien was mad gay and the ending was weird but strangely satisfying. All in all I like 2 the most because the Vultures were radical. Shin Godzilla is still my favorite Godzilla.
>>
>>17142054
The entire point is that Ghidorah and other civilization-ending kaiju appearing is inevitable. If Haruo lived, just give it time and people with just as much hatred as him would appear, because he's the hero that influences people. Then another Exif would come again to harvest. The world is always on a one-way trip to entropy and you can't reverse that.
Besides, City took 20k years to build and 6 hours for some cannons and harpoons, what makes you think humanity would be able to instantly fight back with just a single vulture's worth of nanometal unnoticed by G?
The ending is pretty much Haruo entrusting Earth to the static ideals of Houtua, and as we can see from the postcredits, they certainly lived in peace.

Your assumption. Also, why is grey goo ending considered so bad compared to the human civilization going extinct and space aliens free to have their 4D chess god eventually consume the universe ending? From the movie their personalities were still intact after assimilation. Oh, I forgot "muh humanity and technology bad".

>while literally the entire humanity except him summoned a death god
Also your assumption. You're assuming that the Exif are completely truthful and that their logic is infallible.

>movie's logic
So DEEP. The "logic" and "message" is that to beat Godzilla™ (it's so strong, nature unbeatable) you need to lose your humanity. We can't have that though so humanity should just go extinct. Very very deep stuff. Clearly this movie was made for those with IQ's over 200.

Fuck no, the city did what it wanted and malfunctioned a shitton. It took down the heat gas camouflage suddenly, the harpoons somehow err'd by itself, it fucked over the programmed limiter, and it continuously added humanoid intelligence to support its own decision. Even the aliens themselves denied that they're controlling it and it's just doing what it judges to be the best. It's a good thing they didn't add autopilot to the vultures, because it would kamikaze the humans already.

If they hadn't fucked off into space and let 20,000 years pass, they could have killed the normal Godzilla before he grew to enormous size and Mechagodzilla would never have had time to build up into a city.

>>17142457
They wouldn't be able to.
It's only after Discount Eren fed all the existing data on Godzilla into the Exif super-duper-giga-saikyou-no-quantum computer that it generated analysis necessary the plan.

It's really funny because not even Haruo with all his rage wants to destroy Godzilla only to invite a worse disaster.
People who still don't get this after watching all 3 movies are just like Haruo from the first movie, the kicker is that they call him retarded and hate his character when they're a denser version of him.

I can understand Godzilla wiping out humanity, but why did Godzilla go after Earth's kaiju? They were destroying human civilizations?

I remember in the novel, where Godzilla chased an Anguirus, Baragon and Varan across the continent before eventually catching them and killing the trio at the same time
>>
>>17143002
There can only be one, I guess. Terraforming earth into a monotype wouldn't be as easy with other kaiju in sight. That's actually my main gripe with the novels in general, the apocalypse kaiju are there for the sake of fanservice and didn't really do anything in the grand scale. Take them out and nothing changes. Except Gorath and maybe Gigan because that one is nanometalized by the bils.
>>
>>17142264
With what spaceship though? Unless you meant they should have avoided Earth in the beginning, it wouldn't have ended well regardless since the two aliens would have either invented MechaGodzilla 2.0 and eat the entire planet, summon Gidorah and eat the entire planet, or both at the same time.

The Exif were the pinnacle of all intelligent lifeforms and they were decimated by Ghidorah. Humans didn't get nearly that far before Godzilla showed up. Why would things be different this time?

Mothra fought Godzilla twice, driving him off while taking damage once and dying the second time. That was when Godzilla was 20,000 years younger and a sixth the size.
Mechagodzilla City had 20,000 years of growth time and still lost.

Yes. On the ship one of the Earth leaders says the nanometal was how the Bilusaludo were originally planning to conquer Earth. Notice that the Bilusaludo leader never attempts to argue against this. He instead says the humans should have just let the Bilusaludo take charge of everything. Pretty suspect.

Yeah, I guess they don't have 20,000 years to wait and allow the nanotech to build itself all on it's own. And I mean, it's not like they could just make the nanotech build what they want it to build, the very idea of humans having control over technology they obviously have control over is ludicrous

And if it had won, it would have swallowed up the earth. How is that any better than Godzilla winning?

Not even the Bilusaludo had control over it. The city was turning off the smokescreen of its own will, the harpoons were failing for reasons they didn't know, but they didn't care because they saw nanometal as holy.

Assuming that isn't a complete non-sequitur to what I was saying, it's not like EMPs are out of the question.
But, since I was saying that the humans could have killed Godzilla if they worked with the nanotech for a while, you're retarded

>Not even the Bilusaludo had control over it
So when you "watched" the episode, did you just turn your head away from the screen during the bit where they deliberately manufactured some shitty Gundam ripoff mechs according to the designs they wanted? Or the bit where they controlled said mechs to fight Godzilla multiple times?
>>
>>17145338
Did you misunderstand the second movie completely? It villainized the nanometal the whole time. The Bilusaludo never reassured the others that the metal wouldn't swallow the whole world. Heck, they viewed it as an honor and a necessary sacrifice to defeat Godzilla. They told everyone else to just accept what came with it and even tried to force it on the unwilling. Why would anyone trust them or their metal? That was the dilemma of the second movie. Should Haruo sacrifice everything to achieve his goal?
>>
>>17145356

I mean, since he DID sacrifice everything in the end and his ""goal"" seems to have been to sperg out and get rekt, I don't see how there's any observable difference in the end.

He was willing to sacrifice HIS life. But not force a decision like this only anyone else. And, as he said, he wanted to win as a human. Not a part of some metallic glob or ruin the world for the Houtua. That's a Bilusaludian victory. Not a human one. Haruo is a well-written, sympathetic character.

No he didn't. The Houtua seemed pretty well-off and can always advance independently. Plus there's whatever technology the humans have left. Haruo only prevented them from using the nanometal.

True, and if even a divisive movie like vs. Hedorah could become more accepted over the decades and judged on its own merits, I can't see either why the anime films would be different.
Not that I think they're that great, but so far most reactions seem to be way too tainted by what people wanted, based on wishful thinking, some misleading marketing material and whatever image came up in their mind when they first read the words "animated Godzilla movie". Rather than judging the trilogy on what it set out to do and how well it accomplished it. I wonder how long it will take for that to change or whether fans will be able to get over their initial disappointment at all.

I understand that Haruo's motivation for it was that as long as he lived that Humanity couldnt move on from what lead them there, but at the same time it's stupid since it shows how Haruo is stubborn and mentally retarded. "I can't just stop hating Godzilla, better fucking kill myself hoho!".
What mad the situation worse was the fact that he's not the only person who was effected by Godzilla and that his Grandfather was murdered by humans, not Godzilla.
>>
>>17146203
>"I can't just stop hating Godzilla, better fucking kill myself hoho!".
Peak dishonesty. If Godzilla were the reason he offed himself the film wouldn't have bothered to setup the nanometal threat and his link to Ghidorah. We're shown that he was happy with his new life. Happy until Lazzari eagerly reactivated the nanometal and a eldritch abomination's mouthpiece started speaking to him. The dude had a lot problems and realized the world was better off without him. Symbolically, it's fitting that he dies. He's the last of the individuals alive who represented the ideas and emotions which brought humans into conflict with nature or god to begin with. If anything he's selfless because he gave up a good life to ensure humanity's future.

People that still thinks Haruo is an Eren knockoff are factually retarded. PotM, sure. But City literally began with him rethinking what he truly wanted and the whole movie he wonders if he's dragging everyone into his "grudge" business and finally realizes he just wanted to make Earth theirs again, no funny alien business. Come Planet Eater, G is the least of his worries, and he now knows aliens are just using his hatred as an excuse to rule earth. After the mindrape it's too late for him because he'll invite danger himself, so sacrifice is his option. If he's an Eren, he'd instead utilize that last vulture and nanometal to take another futile attempt toward destruction.

Side material details

-Nanometal is made with G cells and is inherently malevolent. If left to grow it will eventually become another Godzilla, only worse.

-Metphies needs Haruo because hate powers Ghidorah more. If Haruo had participated in the ritual, Ghidorah’s full body (as opposed to just heada) would have appeared and devoured the entire planet instantly.

Makes me wonder if the reactions would be different had they turned this story into a series rather than a trilogy of films. Because for some reason I see people critiquing the movies separately without bothering to tie the connections together.

It was originally going to be a series. But after Shin Godzilla was so successful Toho was like "Hey, why not instead of doing a tv series, we just suddenly make this into a trilogy of movies"
>>
>>17146787
Yeah I'm aware, and I kind of think they should have stuck to that format. Perhaps more gradual storytelling and a faster release schedule would have made the story and message flow better. Although that would have necessitated changing up some things like restructuring the story and pace.
>>
What does moth pussy feel like?
>>
>>17146933

>>
>>17146822
I think beside the whole extra cash from theaters, splitting it into a whole year was also a good way to keep the godzilla name relevant. Thanks to the trilogy there's not a single year without G since Shin, and goes all the way to KotM. Just making it a seasonal anime would, well, probably made it last for like 6 months before fading off into obscurity.
That said, I hope they consider the 12/24 eps approach when they need to fill empty slots again. The banters in these movies and Shin are comfy to watch. Wouldn't even mind if it's CGI because Polygon absolutely aced the models this time..

Yuko was basically dead. Lazzari said she wasn't going to recover and only the nanomteal was keeping her "alive." And, although he seems to care for her, Haruo never really reciprocated her feelings as he was too busy with Godzilla. She had it rough all around.
