Daniel DiManna of the Godzilla Novelization Project joins me to appreciate Kaijuvision’s first epic. 182 minutes long, it’s the Japanese response to Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments (1956). The kaiju is Yamata no Orochi, the 8-headed dragon. Toshiro Mifune plays the legendary Prince Yamato Takeru and the mythical god Susanoo. Since this is a religious epic, the related topic is Shinto.

This episode is dedicated to Toshiro Mifune.
I’d like to send a shout-out to our patron Sean Stiff for donating at the Kaiju Visionary level. Thank you for your support! I really appreciate it.
