So far we have only seen the image of one monster from director Shinpei Hayashiya's latest film, "Deep Sea Monster Raiga" , but in a blog post yesterday the film maker revealed that there are actually four monsters in the film. The above image, which was posted along with the blog article shows two of the monsters face to face.
This should come as no surprise to readers of Monster Island News, remember this except from an article I posted last December?:
...... Global Warming is the catalyst for unleashing giant monsters on Japan. The melting of the southern polar ice causes a disruption in Earth's ecosystem that causes the migration of the monsters to the island nation.
The largest of the sea monsters is a beast called "Raiga", which unleashes it's "Inconvenient Truth" on Tokyo just like Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra and Rodan have numerous times.
Don't feel bad if you didn't, I actually had to go back and double check it myself.
So far the images and trailer from the film made it look like there was only one Raiga monster, when what we were really seeing was several different monsters shown separately.
It's good to actually see the monster getting some press instead of the singing trio of Enosawa Manami, Urata Mao and Oriyama Miyu.
I guess they would have to promote the monster from the film eventually. I was beginning to think that "Deep Sea Monster Raiga" was the kaiju version of "Xanadu."
Maybe it still is?
