Godzilla TV Anime Launch on Crayon Shin-Chan
This coming July 22, a collaboration episode between Godzilla and anime Crayon Shin-Chan (Yoshito Usui) will be aired. The episode is titled “It’s Shinnosuke vs. New Godzilla” and will focus on the confusing appearance of Godzilla in Tokyo Bay. The episode will include a clash between Shinnosuke and the monster, with the Kasukabe Defense Corps thrown in the mix. This is Godzilla’s first appearance in a Japanese television anime.
Yuji Mutoh, Crayon Shin-chan’s director is a Godzilla series fan himself so he worked faithfully with the staff in order to reproduce the Godzilla design from the future Godzilla Resurgence movie. Additionally, original sounds from the movie including Godzilla’s roar will be used in the TV anime.
Together with the special collaboration, the TV Asahi and Tokyo Roppongi Hill’s TV Asahi/Roppongi Hills Summer Festival Summer Station event which will be held at EX Theater Roppongi on July 16 to August 28, will feature a Crayon Shin-chan and Godzilla Resurgence collaboration photo spot.
