The Japanese have an obsessive fascination with monsters destroying their cities, probably an allegory stemming from their experiences with Hiroshima and Nagasaki towards the end of World War II. This trippy film short: Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo shows a giant god warrior floating over and subsequently destroying Tokyo. Why? Because that’s what giant god warriors do! We’re not exactly sure what’s being said in the short (it’s entirely in Japanese), but it doesn’t really matter. It’s all about a monster, nay, a god, destroying Tokyo . . . naturally.
The creators of this short are also individuals who worked on the Evangelion series. Where is Godzilla when we need him?!
