Daikaiju Refrence No. 1

By Kuroneko-Sama

Konnichiwa! I am Kuroneko-sama. There a few out there who may already be acquainted with me from Kaiju Galaxy, Gojira’s Sanctuary, or even Toho Kingdom.This is my first posting here at Journalism G2K, and I am very excited to be a part of this. This initial post of mine will be the first of many in what I hope will be a fun and concerted effort for and of many daikaiju aficionados.“References” is something I came up with in order to illustrate just how the reach of daikaiju eiga such as Godzilla and Gamera extends, and not just in the manner of TV shows and films. This is to be a weekly article. If you happen to have anything to contribute to “References”, I urge you to please do so. I also emphasize that, while Toho Kingdom has a similar article to their site, those who do submit references and sightings, do so honestly, and do not simply look at and take credit for the discoveries of others. Please also keep submissions appropriate, and keep in mind the consideration of others. Also, feel free to leave comments! Any and all feedback is welcome, provided it is appropriate.Thank you!*~Kuroneko-sama~*
