Godzilla Singular Point is a cartoon series that premiered on Netflix and has since made it's run of 12 episodes, might be getting a second season but that's neither here nor there, I have seen this series from beginning to and I would like to share my personal thoughts and feelings to help others decide whether or not the series is worth watching for a new or old Godzilla fan or for those who are simply looking for a fun sci fi cartoon. sit back grab a drink and lets go over all the little things that make up Godzilla Singular Point.
So basically monsters are coming from another world and our heroes must try and figure out why but mostly how to stop them before it's to late. despite thirteen episodes to work with we never get to know our heroes Mei Kamino and Yun Arikawa, we know that Mei is a graduate student and prodigy trying to figure how this is happening to begin with and programmer and engineer for the OTaki Factory who is ultimately trying to figure out how to stop the monsters. Beyond this we don't get anything on their families what put them on their individual paths or what they might be into outside of the plot.
As far as Godzilla himself, he doesn't appear until episode six and even then he won't be the recognizable poster child until episode ten. Even after his first appearance, Godzilla will only have small brief parts throughout the series, which is a shame since he is the title character.
I suppose the one thing I can say is that giving the other monsters some attention is where this series shines most besides Godzilla who barely appears in his own series, it mostly follows Jet Jaguar from the old 1973 movie Godzilla vs Megalon it also features Anguirus, Manda, Rodan who is actually the first monster to appear, Salunga and Kamecarus. So many old classic monsters returning and a few new ones is defiantly a welcomed deal for any Godzilla fan unfortunately each monster other than the hero Jet Jaguar only really get one maybe two episodes to really do anything before being killed. Well this does take a more serious look at the monsters, at least we have been reunited with some of our old friends again..
Okay so I realize that this is very subjective, but most of the monsters in this series are characters over 47 years old at the least and have mass fan base each, so when I say that some designs work but mostly they don't I don't think I am alone. Rodan (as seen above) has three different forms all pretty close to the same and very much like a pterodactyl but with altered colors, I am aware Rodan has always been based on the iconic dinosaur but through the years of suits and fanbase Rodan has kind of obtained his own basic look separate from the dinosaur. Jet Jaguar is barely recognizable and then there is the new monsters.
There are new monsters kind of. For example Salunga as seen above is a new monsters technically but is in fact a cross between two old classics Gabera and Baragon and he's not the only monster that is a mix between two others. I generally like Salunga, but Gabara hasn't appeared since 1969 in Godzilla's Revenge so why didn't they just call him Gabara?
To some up I like some of them like Salunga, Anguirus and Manda but mostly it just dosn't work for most of them.
Real Scientist where hired for this
Actual scientist where hired for the writing of this show but I am not sure exactly where they put their mental talents. The one thing that would have been interesting to explore although I do not thing any Godzilla fan would have ever asked is "How do such giant creatures function in our world. It's true there are all sort of questions that come from all of their mass sizes like how come they are not being crushed under there own weight? or at that size what could they eat? or how did a dinosaur survive the extinction to get mutated in the first place? But in Godzilla Singular Point when the monsters start coming through and into the human world the answer is that the laws of their world allow them to exist so they can.
I am not a physicists but I would have to assume that once they enter our world they then have to abide by the rules of our world right? I really don't know what the scientist worked on for Godzilla Singular Point it went unnoticed by me.
In my opinion Godzilla Singular Point is not really worth seeing for a Godzilla fan or even a sci fi action fan if you want something with giant monsters and portals watch Pacific Rim both the movie and the series Pacific Rime Black do mostly the same thing but do it way better and they didn't need scientist to help right the plot.
But what did you think of Godzilla Singular Point did you like it or did you hate it please leave me a comment in the section below. I'm Wanderin Jim and I hope you all have super happy day.
