War of the Titans by KaijuWithNoName
War of the Titans
Attack on Titan- what can be said about this anime that hasn't been said? Its considered by many to be an awesome anime series and they are right for thinking that. Its so good that I'm still waiting for that second season to come. Heck, I even paid homage to Attack on Titan once. kaijuwithnoname.deviantart.com… However, I have to admit that after thinking about it (and because Toho made two films based on Attack on Titan......I haven't seen them, so I really cannot comment on them), I have to admit that I've lately seen similarities between the franchise and the kaiju classic War of the Gargantuas (heck, there was even a YouTube video that made this comparison www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OCweE…; ). And honestly, that's not a bad thing. Because I saw said similarities, I thought it'd be fun to try to recreate the classic poster for War of the Gargantuas  but replace Sanda and Gaira (and the three lead cast members) with the Rogue Titan and the Female Titan (along with Eren Jaeger, Armin Arlet, and Mikasa Ackerman). I hope you guys'll enjoy this piece.

Goddess of Vengeance by KaijuWithNoName
Goddess of Vengeance

I’ve made it no secret on my page that I am not only a huge kaiju fan, but also a fan of Jeremy Robinson’s kaiju thrillers.

I felt that I should spotlight the series once again, but this time I’m focusing only on the series as a whole (so far). The stories for each novel were amazing. Not since Marc Cerasini’s Godzilla novels have I read such awesome kaiju novels. My favorite element of the series is the main beastie herself, Nemesis. She is a unique and interesting kaiju, worthy of standing next to such famous titans as Godzilla and Gamera. Each time I read a new book in the series, I always enjoy her appearances in the series. Another part of the book series that I enjoy is the fact that Jeremy Robinson incorporates elements from his other books like Island 731 and Raising the Past. When he incorporates these elements, it doesn’t leave the readers confused (but rather it makes them want to go read those other books after reading the Project Nemesis series). At the end of each book, we also see creature concept designs by IDW Godzilla comic artist Matt Frank (aka KaijuSamurai :iconkaijusamurai: ), an artist that I am such a huge fan of. He also did the artwork for the comic book adaptation of Project Nemesis, which was published by American Gothic Press (which is also responsible for printing my favorite magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland). I also enjoy seeing the fanart galleries that are also included at the end of each book (and considering the amount of fanart there is for the series, it is obvious that these kaiju thrillers are awesome). Overall, I cannot recommend this series enough. Go check it out! I look forward to the release of Project Legion.

 

I hope that you guys will enjoy my tribute to these wonderful books.

Soul of a Kaiju by KaijuWithNoName
Soul of a Kaiju
Before we begin, I feel like I have to apologize for my lack of submissions lately. I've been pretty busy with classes lately, so my submissions probably won't be as frequent as they've been last year.

Anyways, time to discuss one of my fellow devianart artists. I am a fan of my friend Firiel-Archer's art. :iconfiriel-archer: I highly recommend that you check her stuff out because its awesome. Her artwork is superbly surreal and I wanted to do something in a style that is similar to her's as a tribute. But I couldn't think of anything that would be perfect for surreal artstyle, until I rewatched Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. and watched a familiar robot battle the King of the Monsters....Kiryu, the third version of Mechagodzilla (actually, if you consider the one from Terror of Mechagodzilla another version, its actually the fourth version. LOL).

Although each version of Mechagodzilla was awesome (from the classic alien invasion style of giant robot to the giant robot with enough firepower to make Burt Gummer blush), my favorite has got to be Kiryu, the Millenium Mechagodzilla. I think what makes this version of Mechagodzilla my favorite was not simply because the design was, in essence, a combination of the Showa and Heisei Mechagodzillas. The reason why this version was the best was because of how it was built. Unlike the other Mechagodzillas (which were simply robots to be controlled to fight Godzilla), this one was a machine built around the bones of the Godzilla from 1954. This cyborg really becomes interesting when, in the middle of a fight with Godzilla in Godzilla x Mechagodzilla and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S., it starts to run by itself, like as if the soul of the original Godzilla was inhabiting the mechanical shell.

I hope you guys will enjoy my surreal tribute to both my friend's work and to a very complicated kaiju.

No Need for Three on a Soda by KaijuWithNoName
No Need for Three on a Soda
Happy Valentine's Day, everybody!

I am a fan of Tenchi Universe. I am normally not a fan of harem anime at all, yet this show's characters really makes me enjoy this show a lot. The jokes are absolutely hilarious, including Mihoshi being an airhead (repeatedly), Tenchi being used in a romantic tug-of-war between Ryoko and Ayeka, a cabbit (its one part rabbit, one part cat, and one part starship), Doctor Washu's cloning experiments, etc.. I admit that I have not seen any of the other Tenchi related series and movies, but if they are as funny as Tenchi Universe then maybe I should watch them. Ryoko is my favorite character in this series (and was included in one of my previous submissions on deviantart kaijuwithnoname.deviantart.com… ). Her voice-over actress in the English dub, Petrea Buchard, was awesome in this series. In fact, she's so awesome that she hosted a "Did You Know Anime?" video, which discussed Tenchi Muyo. www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD9cMv…; Overall, check this series out.

With the art style, I modelled it after the iconic Archie comic cover featuring Archie, Betty, and Veronica drinking a soda through three straws. According to The Comic's Cube, the iconic lines that Jughead said on the cover was from "the old superstition "Three on a Match," which is the belief that if three soldiers lit their cigarettes from the same match, one of them would die. In other words, it's bad luck. Perfect for Archie in this case!". For more about the famous cover, check out this link. www.comicscube.com/2012/09/thr…    I must confess, I was creating this piece a month ago. While trying to find photos of Tenchi, Ryoko, and Ayeka to use as models for this piece I coincidentally found out that someone else had already thought of this awesome idea,  rongs1234 :iconrongs1234: . I seriously recommend checking out his hilarious take on the idea. rongs1234.deviantart.com/art/T… With this piece, I wanted to experiment again with my art style and model it after Bob Montana's artstyle.

I hope you will enjoy this piece and have a Happy Valentine's Day.

Both and Neither a Machine and a Being? Fantastic! by KaijuWithNoName
Both and Neither a Machine and a Being? Fantastic!
I love Star Trek and Doctor Who- they're two of the greatest sci-fi franchises ever. As such, it was fun re-reading the Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who crossover that IDW published in 2012 (my favorite part of it was the issue where the Fourth Doctor met with Captain Kirk and his bunch as they dealt with the classic Cybermen). But there was something that I always wanted to see in that series- what were to happen if the Doctor had encountered the Guardian of Forever (from the TOS episode "The City on the Edge of Forever")?

So I ran with that idea, but instead of focusing on the Eleventh Doctor, I felt that I should give a shout-out to the Ninth Doctor (as portrayed by Christopher Eccleston) and felt that he would be the version that'd be the most likely to have used it. This was the Doctor that I, and a lot of people, first regularly followed. My favorite of the Ninth Doctor's stories was the "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances". These episodes were creepy, well-written, and overall a necessary watch for any sci-fi fan. Although Eccleston's run on Doctor Who was short, I thought that it was fantastic.

Overall, I hope you all enjoyed it.

Wow! Alot of stuff has happened lately for the kaiju genre- the plot details for Shin Godzilla (which I'm looking forward to), the postponement of Pacific Rim 2 (NOOOO!!!!), and the possibility of a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla (if their spinoffs are successful). But, this one I did not see coming. Back in June, I submitted a piece dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of Gamera.
50 Years of Turtle Meat by KaijuWithNoName
It was a fun piece to work on and a lot of us kaiju fans felt that Gamera might not get a movie to commemorate his anniversary. But, recently at the New York Comic-Con a trailer was unveiled for the titanic terrapin's return.

August Ragone made a blog post giving the details about the film so far. augustragone.blogspot.com/2015…    But, I think I need to give my few cents based on the trailer......I'm digging it. The trailer seems to imply that it will go back to the serious tone of the 90's trilogy (and I'm glad that Gamera got his classic roar back instead of the generic monster sound effect from Gamera the Brave). The story sounds like an interesting premise- how would someone react to being saved by a kaiju and then seeing said kaiju return when they're older? The only gripe I have, but this might be because I'm a traditionalist, is that Gamera and the other kaiju are CGI-ed. But, as long as its decent CGI I don't mind. Overall, I look forward to hearing more about this movie.

Abayo!
