Let’s celebrate good old Godzie’s birthday by looking over my favorite Japanese monster movie sites:
Toho Kingdom – This exhaustive site not only covers Toho’s non-Godzilla/kaiju films, but also has sections devoted to kaiju concept art and movies that were planned, but never made.
SciFi Japan – Some of the most in-depth news and reviews you’ll ever find.
HenshinOnline – Although this site has stopped updating, the archives are a wonderful resource for reviews and information on Japanese science fiction.
The Good, The Bad, and Godzilla – A blog run by the information guru of daikaiju, August Ragone.
Speaking of Mr. Ragone, I’m going to reclaim my title as King of the Google Books links by pointing you towards some selections from his book Eiji Tsuburaya: master of monsters : defending the earth with Ultraman.
And while we’re on the subject, I recommend reading through the previews for Steve Ryfle’s Japan’s Favorite Mon-Star: The Unauthorized Biography of “The Big G” and A Critical History and Filmography of Toho’s Godzilla Series by David Kalat.
