Koujin (kaiju TV drama)

After the monumental success of Shin Godzilla surely you've wondered what other Japanese companies would be after a piece of the kaiju pie, and from the looks of it we have our first real followup, not as a movie, but as a new Japanese TV drama, Koujin. It has a period setting and features a quadruped lizard creatures that bares... something of a similarity to Shin Godzilla!

Jim Pluff has corralled some of the details on his blog:

I hope that it's a success, and it will come to America in dubbed form. :wink:

^Well, a dub is quite unlikely for this sort of thing. Asian TV dramas do, however, often end up on streaming services available here in the West with subtitles.
