Look Out! Chibi Godzilla Raids Again on YouTube!

Following the hit YouTube series Chibi Godzilla comes Chibi Godzilla Raids Again and he’s adorable!

Chibi Godzilla Raids Again Promotional PosterHere comes Godzilla, and he has a son. No, we’re not talking about Minya, but he might as well be the star in the short form series that’s freely available on YouTube. Chibi Godzilla Raids Again is a sequel of the other series released two years ago, and what’s different is that it’s set on Monster Island and instead of the short 30 seconds the prior series had, it’s roughly 2 minutes (minus the title sequences).

The first episode is available to view (see below) and like the past work, it’s a humorous take on the situation these creatures face while living in a human world. With this newest series, he’s back on Monster Island, and as for where the humans are, they might appear later on. In the debut episode, whom Chibi G meets is technically a mechanised version of himself, and the tête-à-tête they have is more of a setup than anything else. What’s presented is mostly stand up comedy, manzai style, and I’m wondering what will happen next!

It’s hard to really judge from a single episode, but for viewers wanting to get back up to speed on what this series is about, it’s best to start from the beginning.

And now with the return of the “Blessed”, their goals remain unknown as their long dark shadows are cast over the earth.
