Episode 2 of Godziban is here and encapsulates the variant features of the show, for this week’s episode features the Kamattee Gojira skit as the main story (and then has a Hedojii bumper) Yes, which segment is featured will vary week to week, it’s pure variety, baby! Also by extreme galaxy brain reasoning, we are numbering the episodes of Godziban based on their appearance as part of the ongoing series, treating the pilot as basically episode 0. This is consistent with the numbering of the skit entries in the descriptions of the episodes on the youtube channel. (Sometimes the descriptions are just in Japanese, sometimes they have an English translation, but it is usually simple enough to figure out what it says as it usually is just a synopsis of the episode. And recently there have been more official English versions!)
One feature of the Kamatte Gojira series is that it is live action, but also there is a puppet there. A lady is dumped! On a walkway over traffic! And breaks the heel on her high heels! Cue So_You_Had_A_Bad_Day.mp3 to play…
The lady is in a funk, but then hears the weird noises of…Kamatte Gojira! It’s gross, so she kicks if off the walkway onto the street. Hey, animal cruelty isn’t nice, lady! Later on street level, the lady sees Kamatte Gojira hanging from a tree as she passes by, still making noises. By now she’s decided to take it home and love it, so she does!
We continue the same Hedojii format, but the sun is setting on the wasteland desert so there is a red glow on everything.
