I'm looking forward to this 100x more than I am the stiff cartoon.

I feel like between everyone here and my Godzilla friends online and IRL, I'll have read the book without reading it.

For real. I'm sure the anime will be a decent time waster but this has been in the works for almost a decade and will surely deliver. We're only a couple of days away from release and I'm stoked. Got it on pre-order already.

Some people have been getting theirs early already and the exquisite praise is actually making me think when I find work, I'll be ordering this (assuming it's still in print)

The book just came in. I've been hooked for an hour straight and the information on Honda's life and first two films are really interesting so far. I'm only 62 pages in but it's great. Well worth the purchase. There's also some great photos.

Yeah there's some great pictures of Honda from his personal life and him on the job. There's more on the website but some of these I haven't seen before. I think the critiques on the genre films could be a bit better but so far its good. I'm definitely hoping i get to see any of his more personal drama/comedy films someday, and it's regrettable he was stuck with a lesser genre for so long.

My mother-in-law surprised me with this biography and a book called “The Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster Movies: the Lost Films” as birthday gifts.

Super excited to read this Honda biography. Thumbing through it, it looks like it’s going to be great. And yeah, the pictures are great!

As for the lost films book, I’d never even heard of it but it also looks quite interesting.

I read pretty much exclusively while traveling for work (home is too busy with little kids), so this should make for a fun couple of months.

The Lost Films is great. I’ve already read it twice. And the author is already working on a second ”Lost” book. You’ll be surprised on how many bat "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" crazy projects that were not made through the years

I like that a good portion of the interview is dedicated to All Monsters Attack :).
