Hollywood's latest take on Godzilla is hitting theaters next month, and while we've already heard some of Japan's response to the new and improved giant city-destroying monster, that was before they got a full picture. So what do they think of him now?
From Japan's largest internet forum, 2ch, while some think positively of the new design, the overwhelming response is that the king of monsters has been hitting the twinkies a little hard in his off time.
His neck looks like an American football athlete's.
Is this Sin from Final Fantasy X?
Out of shape Godzilla
He's gone Supersize Me.
That's what happens when all you do is eat and lay around.
Did he gain weight?
He got beefed up from the radiation at Fukushima
He's pudgy and cute.
He looks better than the previous Hollywood Godzilla
He's got no neck... "
While the commenters are piling it on a little harsh about Zilla's figure, Matt Frank, artist for IDW's Godzilla: Rulers of Earth comic and long-time kaiju fanatic, had a counter-argument on the big guy's size. Said Frank, "It's a little ridiculous for anyone in Japan to complain that 'the American Godzilla is fat' - after all, he definitely had a heavy phase in the Heisei Era...."
WTF? Japan you better BOW DOWN to Godzilla's ~thunder thighs~
show some respect to this bodacious icon.
I can't believe we've come to this? *single tear* I blame hollywood

I don't want to live in a world where a kaiju is judged by her or his body. BYE
