Giant God Warriors

Kyōshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru

The last giant god warrior you’d want to get into a political argument at a Tokyo bar selling sweet and refreshing adult Sapporo™ is a Kyōshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru, or Giant God Warrior from Tokyo. First, the dude is, like, 150 feet tall. Secondly, where there’s one Giant God Warrior, there’s more. So unless two thousand of your buddies have your back, best not to flip lip down wind of this guy.

Kyōshinhei Tokyo ni ArawaruKyōshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru isn’t exactly a movie, but rather a film short to promote Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art titled, Hideaki Anno’s Special Effects Museum. First reported by Undead Backbrain who writes that “Hideaki Anno (famous as the director of Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Hayao Miyazaki (one of the world’s greatest animation auteurs and founding director of Studio Ghibli) will work together on the film, with Miyazaki doing design work on the titular kaiju.”

A mouthful that actually says quite a lot. And if you’re familiar with Anno’s work (and who isn’t?), he used the Giant God Warriors as an inspiration for the “angels” of Evangelion. In your face, everybody else who didn’t know that. (Um, that’d also include me. Ahem.)

The museum super fun big time show, which runs from July 2012 to October 2012, features jaw-dropping exhibits and reality bending creatures in addition to said Giant God Warriors. (It should be noted that these GGWs are also the ticket takers and guest services representatives. In other words, don’t go there and act like an American tool flashing all your gangsta bling – Giant God Warriors/Ticket Takers don’t play that game, yo.
